Precor 240i Commercial Series StretchTrainer Review
With the Precor 240i Commercial Series StretchTrainer, Precor have come up with a unique concept. Of course, stretching is nothing new – we have all performed stretches at one point or another in lives – but Precor is the first company to have released a machine that makes sure you can stretch effectively and correctly one hundred percent of the time.
If you want relief from injury, need an effective way to warm-up and cool down, or simply want to gain more flexibility, the 240i is worth looking at.
The 240i offers you the ability to effectively perform 8 stretches, with each targeting a different muscle group, including the quadriceps, shoulders, upper back, inner thighs/groin, hips/legs/back, gluteal/hips, hamstrings and lower back. For those of you who don’t have an idea, what this stretch trainer is for – here is a scan of 1st page of the users manual (or see the video at the end):
The machine has been ergonomically designed in a way to make sure that you are performing the stretches correctly to eliminate the possibility of injuring yourself while you work out, in addition to increasing your flexibility. There is also an instructional placard which features information on the 8 stretches, again, to make sure that you are performing the stretches with correct form.
The padded handlebars not only provide you with a comfortable stretching experience, but also enable you to control both the duration and intensity of each stretch, according to your preferences. Wrist straps are also included for safety reasons and to give you greater control over your stretching.
The Precor 240i Commercial Series StretchTrainer measures just 52 x 28 x 36 inches, and weighs only 60 pounds, which means that taking delivery and storing the machine should be an easy process. Of course, this is also beneficial for those of you who have limited space for fitness equipment.
As mentioned, the 240i has been ergonomically designed to ensure that you can stretch correctly, without doing any harm to yourself. However, when it comes to stretching, comfort is just as important, particularly if you are suffering from injury. Fortunately, the 240i features a cushioned seat as well as knee pads so you can stretch in a comfortable manner.
The Precor 240i has been designed to accommodate users of all heights, and the two-step powder-coating process provides protection against rust. The pivot points also use quiet, self-lubricating bushings.
The 240i StretchTrainer comes with a 5-year frame, 2-year parts and 90-day upholstery warranty.

user weight up to 250 pounds
The Precor 240i has been extremely well received since its release, with reviewers stating that the construction quality, the ability to stretch effectively so less soreness is felt after the workout, and the reduced time it takes to stretch are the machine’s main selling points.
This is one of the few pieces of exercise equipment that has very little to complain about. If we were being fussy we would say that it is a little on the expensive side, but considering that this is the only machine on the market that allows you to stretch effectively, it’s not surprising that Precor can charge a premium.
Other User Reviews:
The best stretch training machine ever used:
Excellent for stretching! First time I tried this, was in a Fitness Center at a Hotel and I was hooked. My gym also had one, and when I left the gym, I made sure I had one of these for home use. Great stress reliever!
THE strecher to buy and use!
I used this stretching unit at my old gym. Bought it for my home gym and you cannot beat Precor design and quality. It is sturdy, stable and easy to use. It is not cheap in price because it is not cheap it quality or utility or features.
Great piece of equipment:
I use it everyday to reverse effects of sitting at work all day. It’s easy to use and my flexibility has dramatically increased. Took my time and put it together by myself. Be patient, don’t force or over tighten anything until it is together. I like it because I use it!
I was introduced to the stretch trainer at my health club & loved it so much I wanted one for home. This is the same brand my gym has & the quality if excellent. I can do my stretching morning & night now rather than just when I am at the gym. Great all over stretch. Assembly was a cinch. Love it.
Anything Else You Should Know?
All you need to know is that the Precor 240i StretchTrainer is perfect in providing relief to any prior injuries you may have suffered, or if you want an effective way to warm-up and cool down before or after exercising.
It’s hard to justify spending nearly $900 (former MSRP-price) on a stretching machine, however effective it may be, but if you can find if for $700 or under, then it is well worth a purchase – please see current discounts. – the 240i-price came down to that range recently…
