Precor EFX 835 Elliptical Crosstrainer Review

The Precor EFX 835 is a commercial grade Elliptical Crosstrainer – exactly the same as used in health clubs worldwide. Precor 835 is self powered, features CrossRamp angles from 13 to 40 degrees, moving handlebars, 15 preset programs, 20 resistance levels, touch and telemetry heart rate monitoring with Smart Rate and advanced metrics tracking.

Precor’s patented adjustable CrossRamp technology makes it possible to alter the height of the elliptical path your foot travels. Called Variable Stride Geometry™, this technology allows you to target specific muscle groups or all major lower-body muscle groups, so you can work the muscles you want, when you want.

The Precor EFX 835 patented low-impact EFX (elliptical fitness crosstrainer) motion offers natural and smooth workout movement, providing the lowest Rate of Perceived Exertion of any other cardio exercise system to make your workouts more natural and comfortable, although you are working-out strenuously. The patented motion allows your heels to remain in contact with foot pedals, reducing muscle and tendon stress.

With the Precor EFX 835, you can select a program and get it going right-away by pushing a QuickStart 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 electronic readouts include Resistance level, CrossRamp angle, Distance, Strides/min, Total strides, Calories, Heart rate, Time remaining, Time elapsed, Time in zone, Segment time Remaining, Average speed, Calories/min, Calories/hour, Watts, METS, Target HR, Average HR, % Complete, Workout profile, Workout summary and pre-set programs from which you can choose include a Manual, 2 x Interval, Cross Country, 2 x Gluteal, Custom, Hill Climb, Fitness Test, 3 x Cross Training, Navy Fitness Test, Basic HRC and Weight Loss programs.

Precor 835 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.

If you are seeking top of the line commercial elliptical trainer for your at-home workouts, Precor EFX 835 would be your best choice. There are no doubts here – go for it, if you can afford it.
