Although the Precor 240i Stretch Trainer provides the dieter with a machine to assist in stretching exercises, the machine is not effective in a complete healthy lifestyle. With no weight or height guidelines, not all individuals will have the opportunity to use the Precor 240i Stretch Trainer. The ergonomic design is a positive, but could potentially deter individuals with knee problems. We found the price to be a concern as well. At $900, the cost is sure to be a deterrent to most dieters. Finally, with no detailed diet plan, the Precor 240i Stretch Trainer does not offer any weight loss solutions to individuals.
