Precor C776I Stepper uses self-powered six-phase generator system that produces least friction and provides very smooth operation. The stepper has a belt drive instead of the usual chain drive, which minimizes maintenance. Since it is equipped with large footplates, the user can vary position comfortably during the workout. The console provides 14 workout options, which are goal oriented and motivational. Ergonomically placed U-shaped handlebars and side rails encourage the right posture during workouts. The step speed can be controlled along with the level of resistance.
