Overall Quality

The Precor EFX 225 has an easy-to-use console that contains a 5" LCD screen that displays 13 points of performance data along with holding 10 preset programs targeting a multitude of health issues and containing 2 individual user ids. It is engineered with a rear drive system that has seamless transitions between 16 levels of resistance and kicks the intensity up with an incline elevation of 15-to-25-degrees. The stride follows the unique CrossRamp ® pattern that mimics a natural trekking motion and allows users of all heights to comfortably enjoy the benefits of the 18” to 21” adjustable length.
