Product Description

Amazon.com

The Precor EFX 5.37 elliptical trainer offers incredible workout flexibility in your own home. You'll enjoy a comfortable, rewarding workout with CrossRamp technology for variable incline and stride length, Convertible Arms for workout variety, and sophisticated customization programs (15 in total) that track your progress. This Precor elliptical features integrated heart rate monitoring and compatibility with wireless heart telemetry via the included Polar chest strap transmitter. This package also comes with a custom Precor mat and two Nalgene water bottles.



The ramp angle is fully adjustable from 15 to 40 degrees, allowing you to individually target and work all major lower body muscle groups.


Adaptable arm positions that easily adjust to offer Lower Body or Total Body exercise modes.
Features:
  • Adjustable CrossRamp targets key muscle groups. The ramp angle is fully adjustable from 15 to 40 degrees and moves up and down at the push of a button, allowing you to individually target and work all major lower body muscle groups. Different ramp positions engage different lower body muscle groups. When moving the ramp from the bottom to the top, you’ll feel various muscles engage and disengage--the lower positions activate all muscle groups, while the higher positions isolate glutes, quads, and calves. A variable stride length, from 21 to 24.5 inches, offers even greater diversity to your workout.
  • Track your target heart rate for fitness results. Easy-to-use handgrip sensors or wireless heart rate telemetry allow you to monitor your heart rate during workouts. Whether your desired result is improved cardio training or weight loss, SmartRate keeps you in your target zone--helping you achieve your fitness goals
  • Convertible Arms offer workout variety. Fixed or moving--with adaptable arm positions that easily adjust to offer Lower Body or Total Body exercise modes--the choice is yours. Only Precor offers this proprietary feature, which adds greater flexibility to your exercise regimen.
  • Designed with your home in mind. With subtle tones and clean lines, this Precor elliptical is designed to fit naturally with your home decor and your lifestyle. The display keeps your favorite things close at hand with areas for your water bottle, MP3 player and cell phone. A compartment on the front of the machine keeps your magazines in easy reach.
  • Customize your options to suit your workout. The options button allows you to customize your workouts by viewing additional metrics, entering weight and age, or selecting a personal workout goal--all of which leads to a more meaningful workout.
  • Continuous heart rate monitoring via touch sensors on the handlebars or via the included wireless Polar chest strap transmitter
  • Intuitive console is easy to read and adjust. Access QuickStart, programs and User IDs at the touch of a button. The Tap Control keypad is user-friendly with "quick key" functions. Dedicated display areas show your heart rate, calories burned and time/duration of exercise--to help you get the most from your workout. Choose between calorie goals, distance goals, vertical feet climbed goals, and time goals.
  • 20 consistent levels of electromagnetic resistance to customize your workout, ranging from 10 watts at work level #1 at 20 RPM to 625 watts at work level #20 at 100 RPM

In addition to the heart rate monitoring hand grips, the 5.37 comes with a wireless chest strap that will communicate data to the elliptical.

Let me start by saying that I've wanted a good home elliptical machine for years. I'm a software engineer, and sitting at a computer all day is not the best exercise. I'm not a professional trainer or a marathon runner so I don't have that type of perspective on this machine. However, I have been using it consistently since I put it together, so while I'm not a fitness expert, I've used it enough to give it a good, full review.

This is one seriously expensive piece of machinery, no doubt about it. At this price point, I would expect to receive an elliptical trainer that is absolutely flawless. There are way too many other options out there to seriously entertain the prospect of putting down this much cash on a machine that is anything less than perfect. Seriously, if I sold both my car and my motorcycle tomorrow, I'd be shocked if I got enough for them to equal the cost of this elliptical.

But enough about me and my aging vehicles. The shipping for this item mirrored the shipment of my Precor 9.35 Premium Series Treadmill almost exactly. The delivery guy dropped it off at my front door and waited while I opened the box and moved it, piece by piece, into my house so that he could get his pallet back. You have the option of having them put the box in your garage instead, but as I stated in that review, that option wouldn't have worked for me.

Moving the elliptical machine inside took several minutes and several trips. It contains a number of large and unwieldy parts, the biggest and heaviest of which was the pre-assembled ramp/pedal/motor section. Luckily, this part has wheels on the motor end, which is by far the heaviest end.

We just bought one of these from our local dealer. Previously, we had a 5.17 for 4 years. Once you go Precor, it's very hard to use anything different - the quality, the motion, it's wonderful. The warranty is a big selling point. I called them up after 3 years to inquire if newer wheels would make things quieter; they sent out new wheels right away as a courtesy, no shipping or anything! Fantastic customer service.

The biggest change from the 5.17 is how SMOOTH and QUIET this thing is!! I thought our 5.17 was amazing, but jumping up to this premium model really makes a difference. Somehow the wheels are practically silent, and it's pure luxury to exercise on this thing. But it sure gives you a workout!! I religiously use the heart rate monitor, and while the smoothness makes things feel easier - my heartrate still shot up just like the 5.17. That's what counts!!

We love the new model - the electronics on this are amazing compared to our old model, but the nicest feature is the convertible arms. Being able to go back/forth, depending on our mood, was a total selling point. We could have saved $200 by getting the 5.35 which drops a few features, but when you're spending this money - $200 is totally worthwhile to get the top of the line.

Only real advice I can give? Our local dealer was much, much cheaper - plus they came and setup everything. These things have healthy margins, so negotiate. If you don't get a discount of at least 20% off, something is wrong.

We bought our old 5.17 for $2500, and sold it for $1000 4 years later. That's about $400/year, which is comparable to a decent gym membership - but it's so much easier to exercise at home. Precor is awesome!!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I will first start off by saying I workout at least 5 days a week and travel a lot. As such, I have used numerous different elliptical trainers and can thoroughly state that this is the be I have tried yet.

That being said, if you have ever used a Precor trainer, you'll be pretty familiar with all of the features which seem to be standard. One of the things I have not noticed on any other machine is the adjustable arms. You can switch them between fixed or moving. Sometimes I prefer to not use the arms so I found this very handy.

Another Great feature is the Heart Rate Monitoring. This trainer has both the hand grips and the ability to receive a reading through a chest strap. I much prefer the chest strap as I find it to be much more accurate than the handgrips. It does come with a Polar chest strap, but you can use any other Polar chest strap as well. My wife and I both have straps from Polar watches and it integrates seemlessly.

The display is easy to read and is very straight forward. You can choose to customize your workouts or use any number of the presets. Truly you can get a different type of workout everyday if you choose. Another feature that I have not seen before is the ability save user info for 4 different users. Once you've created a profile it will keep track of things like your favorite workouts, best times, and calories burned. This really helps to keep you motivated to go for more.

Overall, I can't say enough about how great this is. The only potential downsides are the cost and the size of the machine. If cost is an issue for you, there may be other machines out there that fit your needs, but this is hands down the best quality in my opinion. I also mention size, which truly should not be a concern for if you are looking for an elliptical -- they all take up space, but you should measure out your space to ensure this doesn't become the focal point of your room.
