The Precor EFX 5.37 elliptical is a top of the line club-quality elliptical trainer. If you want the best of the best in your home gym then the Precor 5.37 is the machine you want. Precor EFX 5.37 elliptical trainer is a strong and durable elliptical machine designed to give you a thorough cardio and toning workout, and it comes with an outstanding warranty and very low maintenance needs.

The Precor EFX 5.37’s CrossRamp® automatically adjusts from 15 to 40 degrees and also sets accordingly the stride from 21″ to 24.5″ imitating the same feeling of an uphill climb. It’s called Variable Stride Geometry, and it allows you to work all muscle groups in the trunk and legs, or specify one group, for example, the calves or the glutes. You can use the convertible arms for a total body workout, or concentrate mainly on a lower body workout.

With the Precor EFX 5.37, you can select a program and get it going right-away by pushing its Quick-Start button. Just enter your weight and age, and then briefly hang onto the machine’s stationery handles while the machine automatically sets the ramp to the program levels you desire. After that, you’ll grab the movable handlebars and get going. You can change the Crossramp and resistance levels at any time. The pre-set programs from which you can choose include a cross trainer, fat burner, gluteals, heart rate, hill climb, interval, manual and weight loss.

Clearly, Precor stands by its work, as it should, since this company actually created the first elliptical machines and remains a leader in the fitness industry today.

If you are seeking top of the line club-quality elliptical trainer for your at-home workouts, Precor EFX 5.37 would be your best choice. There are no doubts here – go for it, if you can afford it.

 

Elliptical Motion Combined With CrossRamp® Technology

The Precor EFX 5.37 elliptical crosstrainer features CrossRamp® technology that provides various degrees of incline to enable home exercisers target gluteals, quads, hamstrings and calves more effectively than any other elliptical trainer on the market.

Precor integrates elliptical mobility and CrossRamp® technology to eliminate 2 problems with indoor cardiovascular workouts:

  1. High-impact training that stresses joints
  2. Elliptical which works too few muscle groups.

Precor is known for its CrossRamp technology, and their competition is unable to copy it due to a strict patent. The distinction between the Precor incline capability and those found on competitive elliptical fitness machines is that the Precor products preserve a real elliptical movement as you raise the incline. Some other manufacturers, to be able to bypass the patent, developed incline designs that will distort the elliptical stride. This approach makes a motion that accelerates and decelerates, causing a greater level of stress and strain on your joints.
