The Precor EFX 5.23 home elliptical is the newest model in the Precor home elliptical

lineup. The 5.23 is a lighter built version of their 5.31 Home Cross-trainer, but

still provides a very smooth and solid feel. This elliptical is a lower body only

design with the adjustable cross ramp. It is a great choice for someone that enjoys

the Precor Ellipticals but wants to keep their investment under $3000. The ramp adjusts

from 15-25° to give you several different angles to work the lower body and add to

your workout variety. The console on the 5.23 offers 8 different programs and two

user Id’s to challenge the user and prevent workout boredom.

The heart rate hand sensors are conveniently located on the side of the handrails

so you can quickly check your HR to determine your workout intensity. The Precor

EFX 5.23 is backed with the same outstanding warranty as the other Precor products

(10 year parts/1 year labor), so you can be confident that this elliptical will hold

up for years to come. You can find all the info/specs on the Precor EFX 5.23 here.

We rate the Precor EFX 5.23 as a “Recommended” buy for those looking for a lower

body only elliptical with a ramp design

The Precor EFX 5.25 is another new model from Precor that is a lighter version

of their full body home fitness elliptical cross trainers. It’s not as rugged as

their higher end models, but still very well built and provides a very solid and

smooth workout. It is a great choice for someone that enjoys the total body Precor

Ellipticals but doesn’t want to spend over $3000. The ramp adjusts from 15-25° to

give you several different angles to work the lower body muscle groups effectively.

When you combine this with the moving arms, you get a great total body workout that

will burn many calories and challenge your cardiovascular system. The console offers

8 different programs to keep your workouts fresh and exciting along with two user

The heart rate hand sensors are located on the center handrails for quick monitoring

of your pulse to determine your proper workout intensity. The Precor EFX 5.25 is

back with Precor’s great 10yr parts/1yr labor warranty as well. We were impressed

with the new entry level home elliptical from Precor. They were able to produce a

lighter construction version of their higher end cross trainers, but still maintain

a well built, solid feeling elliptical at a more affordable price range for consumers.

The Precor EFX 5.31 is a lower body only (no moving arms) elliptical with a 30

degree cross ramp. This is the premier home version of the original elliptical concept

that Precor brought to the club scene some 13 years ago. The 5.31 is a well made

machine for someone that wants a high quality piece of fitness equipment, but doesn’t

like the total body motion. If you liked the Precor Ellipticals at the gym without

the arms, then this elliptical will give you the same great cardiovascular workout

The Precor EFX 5.33 home elliptical is the scaled down version of the Precor EFX

5.35. It still provides the same solid base structure and a very smooth elliptical

pattern as the 5.35. The primary differences are that the 5.33 has a cross ramp that

goes to 30° degrees of incline (while the 5.35/5.37 go to 40°). The 5.33 also comes

with the moving arms for the total body experience, however on this model the arms

are always moving whether you use them or not. (The 5.35/5.37 have convertible arms

that can be locked or disabled for a total body or lower body only workout)

If you are looking for an excellent quality home elliptical with great features

and workout variety, the Precor EFX 5.33 may be worth checking out. More info/specs

5.37 is their top of the line home model. If your addicted to the club machine, you

will love the features and design of this model. The 5.37 offers plenty of versatility

pattern is very smooth. The adjustable cross ramp allows you more workout variety

moving arms is a great benefit to households with multiple users with different preferences.

You no longer need to decide whether to buy elliptical with or without arms.

heavy duty handlebars, a Precor mat to fit under the machine, and a Precor water

bottle. More info/specs on the Precor EFX 5.37 here.
