BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Precor EFX 5.21 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer is a compact fitness machine designed for low-impact cardio and toning within a small workout area. What it lacks in bulk, the EFX 5.21 more than makes up for in features. The unit offers eight pre-programmed workouts, including warm-ups and cool-downs, as well as 16 levels of adjustable resistance. Unlike many ellipticals, this model's handlebars are fixed, focusing the workout on the lower body.

Precor is well-known for its quality elliptical trainers. Since 1980, the company has been manufacturing fitness equipment with comfort and safety in mind. The EFX 5.21 is no exception. The adjustable CrossRamp functionality offers tri-position selection to target various muscle groups while the fixed handlebars offer multiple position options to ensure good posture. And with the smooth, natural stride and fitness metrics monitoring--including heart rate, distance, resistance, calorie burn, time, and strides per minute--the EFX 5.21 offers a continually-challenging, comfortable workout that will have you coming back for more.

EXERCISE

The Precor EFX 5.21 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer offers eight pre-programmed workouts and 16 levels of resistance for the ultimate variety in low-impact home cardio. Because the handlebars are stationary, the EFX 5.21 focuses on lower-body toning, including thighs, calves, and glutes. With a smooth stride, adjustable ramp, and ongoing fitness monitoring, this elliptical offers basic to intense cardio fit for users of all fitness levels.

CONCLUSION

The Precor EFX 5.21 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer is a great home fitness option for users seeking lower-body toning within a smaller workout area. With stationary handlebars, the unit requires less space than other ellipticals, but is also more limited to lower-body moves. With ongoing fitness monitoring, pre-programmed workouts, and adjustable resistance, the EFX 5.21 is a great option for general cardio (for users of all fitness levels) that's easy on the joints.
