Overall Rating


Pros Like other models in this series of AMT Trainers, this model’s biggest pro is its unique design that is so versatile and adaptable. Like the entry level 813 model, the 833 allows users to adjust the stride from 0 to 36 inches, and features the StrideDial® option that easily tracks muscle groups working at various stride lengths. The P30 console on this model is also an attractive console with additional workout readouts and a large LED display.
Cons The motor is the biggest mystery on this model. Users report that this trainer is loud when in operation, and the max user weight is only 350 pounds (400 pounds is average on a model at this price point), but Precor doesn’t publish any specific information on the drive system. In addition, for over $8,000, this model is a bit pricey when the model just under this one, the 813, can save you a few thousand dollars if you don’t need a flashier console.
Summary This is a pricey model, but it’s also a model that features Precor’s new P30 console. This model is also designed with an open frame and large sweeping stride, combined with three handlebars, making this model a uniquely designed and ergonomically sound machine that offers something for everyone.

Precor AMT 833 Elliptical Detailed Overview

Precor’s Adaptive Movement Trainers offer a dynamic design that allows users to enjoy a low impact workout that is completely customizable to their needs and workout goals. The 833 model is a mid-range model in the series composed of the AMT 813, AMT 833, AMT 835 and the AMT 885, all of which offer a unique, personalized workout.

Offered for $8,295, the AMT 833 trainer is mid-range trainer as part of the 830 line in the Experience™ Series by Precor. These trainers are designed to be affordable and customizable, and like the 835 AMT model, features an adjustable stride from 0 to 36 inches and 20 digital resistance levels to choose from. And while this model lacks the Open Stide™ feature (this model has a fixed stride height of 7.8 inches), it does include Stride Dial™, to easily monitor and focus on target muscle groups to achieve various results.

When it comes to the console, the 833 is designed with Precor’s new P30 console model that features a large LED display (exact dimensions are not published), 21 electronic workout readouts, 6 built-in workout programs, Motion Controls (for easy one step changes), as well as a numeric keypad. This model is also CSAFE enabled. The console area features the basics like a racking rack and mobile device charger but lacks a built-in cooling fan. Media supported includes both analog and digital.

The max weight capacity for this model is 350 pounds, and the warranty offered covers this machine for 7 years on the frame, 2 years on parts and 1 year on labor.

The Bottom Line

If you don’t mind compromising the Open Stride™ feature (adjustable height of the stride), then you can go with this 833 model and save yourself about $1,000. However; this is a really unique feature that might be worth the extra money to have a 3-in-1 trainer like the AMT 835 model with Open Stride™. There are few differences between this model and the 835 with Open Stride™, so our verdict is that this is a great buy but that extra adjustable feature is worth it if you can afford the extra cost.
