Happy Owner

I just got my EFX 5.37 delivered today and I was so happy to get a quality workout in in the comfort of my own home. I have worked out on ellipticals for years at he gym. Precor has always been my first choice, I am so happy with my machine I may never go to a gym again.

Absolutely love this machine

Reviewer: Doodles

I purchased my Precor for two reasons: 1.) To stay fit and 2.) because of knee problems. The stride glides so smooth my knee pain is almost non-existent. The pain I do have is because of strength training. When I told my knee doctor I purchased this elliptical he said he is familiar with Precor and it is a good machine. I like the versatility of the stationary/movable arms. The display is larger, which allows for better visual of program progression. It was worth the investment.

Disappointed

Reviewer: Larry

I purchased a Precor 5.37 Crosstrainer unit in Cypress, TX less than three months ago. My experience with this Precor 5.37 crosstrainer has been very disappointing. If you weigh 200 pounds or less, it might be a good machine. If you are, like me, heavier than that, I suggest you look for a different machine. At my weight, this unit makes a lot of noise during a workout. It "creaks" and "moans" and on the Interval progam 1-1 at an incline of 10 or more and a resistance of 8,there is a distinctive "knock" on the forward stride of the left foot pedal which sounds as if the pedal or the glide mechanism is hitting the ramp. It is very annoying and makes you think the unit is about to brake down or otherwise come apart. Since it is still under warranty we had repair man come out and he said nothing is wrong with the unit and it must be the way I am using it. (Always easier, and cheaper for them to sight "operator problem" than to admit machine might need adjustment.) Only conclusion I can come to is that I am just too heavy for this unit. So, if you weigh less than 235, this might be a good machine for you. If you weigh more than that...... (based on my experience) I suggest you look for a different machine. Hopefully I will be able to sell this unit and recoup a portion of my investment. If not, I guess I will have a $5,000 clothes hanger in my workout room. Heavyweights, don't waste your money. In hindsight, wish I had gone with Life Fitness or some other unit brand.

Love it!

I've used Precor elliptical machines in fitness clubs for years and loved them. When looking to create my own home gym, I went with "tried and true." I love the EFX 5.37 because it works and feels exactly like the Precor machines in the club!

Hey Precor! Want to make my experience even better? Find a way to link my elliptical workouts with my running workouts and diet tracking.

Absolutely the best elliptical available

Reviewer: Linda

I am a Family Nurse Practitioner in a family practice office assisting patients with health and wellness goals. I advise them with behavior modification, diet selection and exercise programs for all around fitness goals. I only recommend Precor Elliptical EFX for the best choice in home equipment. I use myself as an example. I tell them that I own one and use it five times a week just like I recommend they do. I let them know that Precor is the "Gold Standard" in home exercise equipment and it is built to last a lifetime. I never recommend any other piece of equipment. I give them the address here in Tucson of Arizona Health. I LOVE my Precor. It is so easy to use, and has great preset programs, and is a comfortable stance during your workout. Simply the BEST EFX.

I love this. It was much easier on my knees than a treadmill. It does all I need it to do without being overly complecated.

State of the art elliptical machine

Reviewer: Steve

Excellent machine for cardiovascular exercise with zero impact as experienced on a treadmill. The user interface display is very simple to follow and very versatile. It is nice to view the summary of workout per individual user. It creates friendly competition between family users. With proper installation, it is a very quiet machine allowing users to work out any time of the day.

Excellent buy for the whole family

Reviewer: Mike

We bought out Precor about 10 months ago and I've logged over 200 miles! This was a dramatic increase for me. Having a high quality product in our home has made a big difference in the frequency of our cardio workouts. My wife uses it all the time as well. Best purchase we've made for our health in a long time.

Keeps me fit

Reviewer: Denise

I purchased my 5.37 in Jan 2011 and I have used it faithfully about 5 times/week since getting it installed. I'm using it to keep fit after losing 80 lbs using the LoseIt! app on my iPod.

Overall, I'm quite pleased with my purchase. I think that having a machine in the house makes a huge difference in getting exercise regularly---it just makes getting down there and doing it much easier (compared to a trip to the gym). The Precor is also a much much better machine than the one I replaced (the electronics gave out on that one). It is rock solid, smooth and the ramp/resistance settings allow for any number of workout types. The thing is built like a tank---I only hope I never have to get it back out of the house!

There are some features on the 5.37 that I don't use as much as I thought I would. I don't convert the arms much. I also thought I would use my own programs more, but I've ended up just sticking with a couple of favorites (gluteal, x-train and hill climb). I like the variety and difficulty of those programs and haven't seen the need to make up my own. And I don't use some of the metrics as much as I thought I would. I probably could have gotten the 5.35 and been happy.

My only small quibble with the machine is that I wish that amount of time you could pause a routine was user-settable (instead of being fixed at 10 minutes). I like to step off the machine for other exercise routines and it would be nice to be able to pick back up where I left off when I get back on the elliptical.

Great Workout

Reviewer: Tanis

I traded my life fitness for the precor and it is so much better. I really feel like I get a great workout and now enjoy using it. I love the way it increases the height of it so you go from almost a walking step to an actual lifting step. It’s great.
