What is an Adaptive Motion Trainer?

If you’re just beginning to get into fitness and are looking for different types of equipment you might be able to use to create your own home gym, you might be wondering where to start. There is a lot of lingo associated with working out, so it can be confusing to try to make sense of it all on your own. 

We have the technology in today’s day and age to create machines that help you work out to the best of your ability. Before these machines, we really had to rely on our own bodies and figure out different exercises to tone different areas of muscle. Now, we’re lucky enough to have quite a few machines on the market that seem to be able to do it all. 

You may have heard about plenty of these machines, but you probably aren’t aware of all the differences between them. But we assure you, no two exercise machines are built the same. In fact, it’s important to do some research before you go out and buy the first exercise machine you see. 

This is why we at Wisthoff’s Fitness Warehouse are here to help you decide what machine might work best for you. So, let’s dive right into it. 

AMT Models: What They Are, Their Uses, and Which Ones Might Fit Your Needs

Precor AMT 885 Adaptive Motion Trainer with P80 Console

What we’ll be focusing on in this article is Adaptive Motion Trainers produced by the brand Precor, also known as AMTs. Adaptive Motion Trainers are machines that combine the features of a treadmill, an elliptical machine, and a stair stepping machine. The entire point of this machine is to create a shorter and more effective workout. 

The beauty of Adaptive Motion Trainers is that they create a workout for you that requires less time and more energy than, say, a spinning machine or stationary bike. The “adaptive” part comes into play here because the machine allows you to change your pace. You can go from walking to running in just minutes.

Different AMT models work in different ways to exercise several body parts. This innovative technology takes fitness to a whole new level. With one single piece of equipment, you can engage in exercises at all levels of experience. 

For example, our Precor AMT 885 that includes a P80 console is exactly what any experienced or beginner fitness enthusiast needs in their home. With this device, there is an infinite range of stride paths that make for a workout experience unique to each individual user. 

How Adaptive Motion Trainers Work

The first thing you need to know about how Adaptive Motion Trainers work is that they adjust to the way that you want to move. AMTs allow you to change your leg movements throughout the whole workout. This is why the exercise routines experienced by each individual using the machine can differ quite a bit. 

These AMT machines have independent foot pedals similar to those on your standard elliptical apparatus. The difference between a regular elliptical machine and AMTs, though, is that you can change the pedal height and select your stride with Adaptive Motion Trainers. 

This makes your workout more dynamic and less tedious than when using other machines. The differing modes through which you can cycle on an AMT are also likely to help you continue your workout goals to a satisfying end. This is because many other types of workout equipment feel like the same old same old each time you use them. 

Additionally, you can incorporate some arm movement into your workout with Adaptive Motion Trainers. Similar to an elliptical, with which the exerciser moves their arms and legs during the workout, the AMT has arm swings that allow your arms to move in sync with your legs while performing their workout. 

The Benefits of Purchasing a Precor AMT for Your Home Workouts

Since cardio is one of the most popular types of exercise that people do on a daily basis, you’ll want the best of the best in your home when it comes to aerobic workouts. Fitness enthusiasts often swear by Precor Adaptive Motion Trainers, and it’s no surprise that they do. 

With a Precor AMT, you get a cardio exercise that is completely maximized. Compared to other cardio equipment (spinners, treadmills, ellipticals, etc.), AMTs give you the most when it comes to cardio exercise. You burn more calories using these machines, plus there are exercise options that can also increase your core strength. 

Instead of walking on a flat surface like a treadmill, you can also increase your endurance faster with AMT machines. By simulating rougher terrain, you’re more equipped to manage real-life hiking, walking, running, etc. 

Additionally, these machines provide the same exercise with less of an impact on your joints. This is important because getting an injury like a runner’s knee can be detrimental not only to your overall health but also to your fitness journey. The point of the AMT is to keep you in good physical shape, not to cause damage to it. 

Where to Find AMTs
