The Precor EFX 5.23 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer offers lower-body cardio and toning that's easy on the joints. Select from eight preset programs, including one crosstraining, one heart rate, and one weight loss, as well as 16 levels of resistance.

Precor has been manufacturing quality, ergonomically-designed trainers since 1980. The EFX 5.23 is exactly what you'd expect from the well-respected brand, featuring adjustable CrossRamp technology to provide variable stride length from 18.5-20 inches. The ramp is fully adjustable from 15-25 degrees and moves up and down at the touch of a button, ensuring you reach all the targeted the muscle groups. Along with calorie burn and workout time, the unit's easy-to-read LCD console display shows heart rate to keep you within your optimal fat-burning zone. It even retains workout information for two separate user IDs.
