The addition of three new treadmills to the Tower 5 fitness center means you’re not only more likely to get one when you want one, but guaranteed a good one every time. The new Precor GFX treadmills are full commercial health club models, a considerable step up from the light commercial units they replaced.

The built-in Ground Effects (GFX) technology overcomes a crucial treadmill problem: how to engineer a running surface that is solid enough to provide maximum stability and pliable enough to absorb high-impact motion. Most treadmill decks flex like an inverted bow to absorb shock. That solves one problem (stress on joints) but creates a new one (getting up to speed).

Precor analyzed the problem and redefined high-impact running as a low-impact sport that didn’t have to sacrifice stability, safety or speed. The results are a patented treadmill design that outperforms a natural running surface.

We think you’ll notice and appreciate the difference.
