BACKGROUND

 

History

In 1995, Precor introduced the world to the break-through technology of mimicking the natural elliptical pattern of your foot, combined with CrossRamp technology, which allows you to alter that elliptical path by adjusting the angle of the ramp. The result was equipment design that revolutionized the fitness industry.

Today, Precor is the #1 elliptical brand in health clubs.*

 

About Cross Ramp Technology

When running, the human foot follows an elliptical path. Precor Crosstrainers are the only equipment that match this elliptical shape with a patented mechanism that weds a rear flywheel with a forward foot pedal, creating a smooth, elliptical movement that mimics a natural running motion.  The patented Precor motion keeps your heels in contact with the pedals, reducing muscle and tendon stress.  The adjustable CrossRamp on all EFX, whether automatic or manual, alters the height of the elliptical path that your foot travels.  This engages different lower body muscles, allowing you to focus on specific or all major lower body muscles.
