The Precor 9.33 treadmill is a strong representative of the Precor brand: built to be good-looking, functional, low maintenance, trouble-free, and long lasting.
The easy-to-use Precor console has a backlit LCD display and QuickStart key functions as well as selection keys for the 16 preset programs. Workouts include manual, heart rate, weight loss, heart rate, custom (2), 1-mile, 5k/10k courses, 3 run, and 3 walk.

Precor treadmills feature a unique Ground Effects® Impact Control System, which absorbs up to 38% more of each foot strike impact than other treadmills. This variable shock absorbing system controls lateral motion, as well as reduces stress on the legs and lower back.
The Precor 9.33 also features its own Integrated Footplant™ technology which mimics your stride and accommodates foot speed changes that occur naturally with every step.
Every time your foot hits the deck, the energy is read and used to make minute belt-speed adjustments as you walk or run.
While its unique suspension system cushions your every step, the SmartRate® Polar Heart Rate technology helps keep you in your preferred workout zone whether it is fat burn, cardio, or peak performance.
Treadmill reviews are quick to point out the other notable features on the Precor 9.33 treadmill including the 1-touch QuickStart buttons, a unique personal best tracker, and the Biofeedback center (a winning feature on all Precor machines).
Hardware specs are also impressive: a fully welded and boltless frame, a 3.0 hp continuous duty motor that provides quiet torque and power at all speeds, the steel-crowned drive system and rollers to keep the multi-ply belt centered and quiet, and it has a reversible phenolic laminate deck which essentially doubles its life. In addition, the dry belt lubrication system requires no maintenance.
While the price is steep, $4,199 at Amazon, the Precor 9.33 is a high performance treadmill that will give you 10, 15, maybe 20 years of reliable use. It is a lot of money to be sure, and Precors are usually worth the extra expense.
However, with Precor’s recent price increases, up to $300 on some models, keep an eye out for discounts and sale prices in this and other high-end treadmills with similar features.
If you can’t find the Precor 9.33 treadmill at a better price than $4200, we suggest you look at reconditioned commercial Precors for around $2200 - $2600, as well as review a few brand new Life Fitness models (also $2600!), or you can find more than a dozen Landice models at about every price point from $3100 to $5400.
