Top Features

 

Patented Elliptical Motion Technology

It is a main feature that differentiates Precor EFX 5.33 from other elliptical trainers. This helps to alter the height and shape of the foot-board so that every muscle group gets ample exercise.

Ergonomically Designed Handle Bars

The smooth and well designed handle bars engage the upper body. They are comfortable to use, tone your body and help to stay in shape without much effort. Using handle bars during training helps to burn fat on longer workouts without getting tired.

Adjustable Cross Ramp

The premium aluminum cross ramp makes Precor EFX 5.33 a workout machine for all core muscle groups. It is so smooth and rotates itself with a simple push on the pedals. The cross ramp can be adjusted from 15 to 30 degrees just by a press of a button. While at lower levels it engages all the major muscle groups, at higher levels it specifically focuses on glutes, quads and calves.

Handheld Heart Rate Monitor

This machine uses a hand grip sensor for monitoring heart rate and also supports wireless sensors. It is especially usefully when you set fitness level goals by keeping you in fat burning, cardio or peak zones.

Ten Workout Programs and Two user ID’s

Precor 5.33 Elliptical Trainer comes with 10 pre-programmed workout routines and two user id’s. The two user id’s help to personalize workouts for two people so individual pre-programmed workout routines can be started by a press of a button.

Extra Features

The extra features in Precor EFX 5.33 add extra comfort to your workout. The console can hold water bottles cell phones and magazines, so that you can make your workout entertaining and the addition of touch sensitive display makes your workout just easier.

I love it! I use it about every other day. You can make your workout as easy or difficult as you wish. It is great to be able to go upstairs and workout and not have to drive to the gym. The assembly was not difficult, but the pieces are very heavy to carry to the second floor. The machine is easy to program, has a variety of levels, and it is a great overall workout!” – Sue Betow

“Precor makes an excellent Elliptical Cross trainer. My wife teaches 9-10 Bodypump and Spinning classes per week and is an expert in fitness training. I purchased this machine mainly for her. She is very pleased with this machine.”- Reed A. Fontenot
