Precor EFX 222 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer for a Full-Body Workout

For those who are too busy to go to the gym but want to keep their bodies perfectly fit and healthy, what can be more convenient, efficient and effective than getting a low-impact, fitness-club quality, full-body cardiovascular workout in the comfort of your own home?  Good thing, something as ideal as that is not far from reality and can definitely be made possible by Precor EFX 222 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer. And as with the other commercial-grade machines from Precor, you can set high expectations for Precor EFX 222 and not be disappointed.

Quality-wise, it’s made with reliable and durable parts that can last for years. Design-wise, the construction is very solid, stable and conducive for doing full-body workout with smooth and natural motions that won’t strain the knees, joints, ankles, arms, shoulders, and hips. Feature-wise, it has preset programs, accelerator workouts, magnetic resistance system, console type, and heart rate monitoring system that cater to beginners as well as advanced users.

The ramp is made with welded steel and covered with a silver powder coat finish. The CrossRamp® technology that is adjustable, which is exclusive to Precor, applies Variable Stride Geometry™ and allows you to adjust the height range of your elliptical path so you can build, focus on and strengthen specific muscle groups as you workout. You may also set the ramp to three different angles and three different stride lengths depending on your preference and training need.

Another feature of the EFX 222 that allows you to work your core, keep your arms in motion, and give you a full-body workout is its moving handlebars. To get optimum results from your workout, you can choose from ten preloaded workouts namely weight loss workout, HRC basic, aerobic workout, climbing hills workout, cross country workout, gluteal workout, cross training, and manual setup.

Of course, setting your machine to the appropriate workout mode, ramp angle, stride length, and resistance level is not all it takes for a low-impact cardiovascular exercise to be effective enough to let you hit your targets and reach your health and fitness goals. You’ll also need to complement your machine’s efficiency with the right amount of commitment and consistency and make it challenging enough to keep you interested.

Another critical workout component that you can find in Precor EFX 222’s high contrast blue-white LCD with acrylic overlay, and will serve as your gauge and basis for the efficiency of your workout program is the workout feedback metrics on amount of time gone by, time still to go, calorie burn, calories burned per min, pulse rate, target HR, SmartRate® Zone, how far you have travelled, strides per min, average number of strides per min, level of resistance and percentage complete. You may also set your default workout time, maximum workout time, pause time, and cool down time for a more structured fitness training program.

As added convenience features, there’s a water bottle/remote control holder, holder for your tablet, and User ID system that’s very useful if there’s more than one user in your household.

Surely, staying fit and healthy is possible with a Precor EFX 222 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer.
