Thanks for your comment. The Precor 100i machines were having maintenance issues so that is the reason they were removed. We are replacing them with LifeFitness's version, which you can read about and see here: http://www.lifefitness.com/commercial/cardio/ellipticalcrosstrainers/elevation-series/flexstrider-trainer-with-discover-se.html

The machines are virtually identically in movements allowed, muscles trained, and mechanics. These will also have integrated TV screens, which many of our patrons enjoy. The FlexStriders will arrive the first week of October. There will be 6 at the ARC and 2 at CRCE. We had 7 Precor previously so basically the same number.

We try to maintain the equipment people like the most, but some other issues arise that effect that ability. I too am a fan of the Precor machines. I tried the FlexStrider at a conference and loved it. I think you will really enjoy that machine and it will become a favorite :).

Thanks for the comment. Please be patient as we work with the companies to get new equipment delivered. We are trying to get them all in here as quick as possible.
