Cross-trainer Features

Our cross-trainer features make it easier for you to reach your goals. Precor has distinguished itself as a worldwide industry leader, providing state-of-the-art fitness equipment to health clubs, hotels, spas, fitness centres, and private homes all over the world. We’re proud of our hard-won reputation for producing fitness equipment that’s easy for people of all abilities to use and durable enough to withstand years of use. The same experience and commitment to quality goes into all of our home models. So, however far you take your personal fitness, we’re right there with you every step of the way.
 
Precor revolutionised the fitness industry in 1995 when it introduced the first elliptical trainer, the EFX. The EFX was a success because it was the first equipment to deliver a minimal-impact cardiovascular workout. Even better, the EFX provided a highly effective cross-training workout, perfect for all kinds of users, from beginning exercisers to elite athletes.

So what is it about Precor Ellipticals that help you move so well? 

The following are some of our key cross-trainer features:

Lower rates of perceived exertion. Precor cross-trainers perfectly match the natural motion of walking or running. Exercising on an EFX is so smooth, your workout will actually feel easier. EFX machines are proven to have a lower Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE), so you can exercise longer and more often, and get to your next goal faster.
 
Patented motion. The patented motion allows your heels to remain in contact with foot pedals, reducing muscle and tendon stress. As you try other elliptical brands, be sure to notice the "kick" or "bounce" in your motion where your heel comes up off the platform. You will not experience this effect with Precor EFX, our superior design provides a true elliptical movement pattern.<
 
The adjustable CrossRamp®. The adjustable CrossRamp on all of our cross-trainers alters the height of the elliptical path that your foot travels, called Variable Stride Geometr.  You’ll find this same movement on EFX in health clubs, hotels and fitness centers around the world, is the same you’ll find on each EFX in our home series.
 
Our CrossRamp technology is what makes an EFX a true cross-trainer. By simply changing the angle of the ramp, you’re able to target different lower body muscles at will. So you can work the muscles you want, when you want. By changing up your workouts, you’ll also stay more engaged and motivated, making it that much easier to get back on your EFX with energy and enjoyment.
 
Superior aerobic exercise with less impact. The unique elliptical motion minimises impact to your joints and lower back while exercising the muscles of your lower body, the key to effective aerobic exercise.
 
Moving and convertible handlebars.  We were one of the first to introduce moving handlebars, allowing you to engage your arms and core for a total body workout. By offering convertible handlebars on select models, we make it possible for you to easily switch between moving and fixed to fit the personal preferences of multiple users in your home.
 
Quality components and construction. An investment in any equipment from Precor is an investment in the best-built fitness equipment in the business. To live up to that reputation, we use state-of-the-art production processes, superior components, and cutting-edge technologies to ensure your Precor Elliptical Crosstrainer will promote years of trouble-free use.
 
Quiet operation. No matter how hard you exercise, your Precor elliptical trainer will be virtually silent.
