Re: NEW EFX® 5.21 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer™

The axle on the right wheel was too thick and rubbed against the plastic housing making a crunching sound; the local store's floor model has an ad hoc fix of a thinner axle on it, which we noticed after the fact and is unknown to customers. Does not seem to be transparent local marketing. We insisted on a replacement machine, which is operating perfectly--excellent customer service policy by the parent company to force good service.

Review after one month.....Great Product!!!

Reviewer: Mike

I'm not going to write a detailed review. I have had the product for a month and am very satisfied. I recommend for anyone wanting a sturdy product that will stand the test of time. I purchased the installation package. Seeing how simple it was to construct, I recommend saving your money and doing it yourself. I would like the computer to have the ability to have firmware updates -- Oh, well.

Love the machine

Reviewer: Svetlana

We bought the elliptical almost a year ago and couldn't be happier. It's easy and fun to use. We ran on it at least five times a week. The machine is well built and durable, but it does make a squeaky noise at lower elevation levels. I just hope it's not a sign of a coming break down. As a suggestion to the manufacturer, it would be nice to have higher elevation options. Other than that, it's a great piece of equipment.

Wasn't what I expected

Reviewer: David Erson

I have used a Precor before in the gym before , but the quality of this unit doesn't compare. The 2 minutes that used this model in the store didn't give me a true indication of how unstable and flimsy the ramp is. The higher end models use a better quality ramp that is more stable and quiter. I should've been more skeptical about spending 1599 when the other models are about 4k for a reason.

Like it

As avid runners my husband and I needed a quality machine to cross train. So far we're both very impressed. You get what you pay for. We have not had any problems with the ramp yet or any noises. I would recommend this machine to anybody looking for a good work out, and a quality machine but not wanting to spend a fortune. I am glad we decided to go for the elliptical over the spinner because I do feel the workout I am getting definitely has helped my running.

Very Satisfied

Reviewer: Bill Johnson

We purchased the EFX 5.21 to replace another brand that finally wore out after 8 years of regular use. So far, we are very satisfied with the ease of use, quality and feel of the machine and expect to use it regularly for the next 8-10 years. We're especially impressed with how low-profile the Precor is compared with other models and how whisper-quiet it is. Being tall (over 6'1"') I'd prefer a slightly longer stride length but now that I'm used to the machine it's no longer an issue. My wife is shorter (about 5'4") and the stride-length is absolutely perfect for her. We would definitely recommend the EFX 5.21 to others.

Love it!

I purchased mine in January 2012, and I use it at least 3x a week. I didn't care for the one with the moving arms, my thought was I would learn to balance while using it, which I have, and I would work my core and other muscles that much better. I have even carried 2 lb weights in each hand during my workout. My Achilles, and feet do not get all tingly and fall asleep on this as they did on other brands, which is the number 1 reason I went with a Precor. I wouldn't buy any other bradn!

Good, solid machine. Works well.
The wheels may squeak initially, but can be lubricated with special lubricant.
Solid product overall.
