How long will the Precor EFX 225 last?

With a lifetime warranty on the frame and welds, the Precor EFX 225 has been built to last for literally decades. This welded steel marvel weighs a hearty 214 lbs. when fully assembled so users will feel secure during serious workout sessions. Moreover, the frame is covered with a powder coat finish to stave off rust and wear and tear, adding to the longevity of the EFX 225. Additional warranties cover 5 years on parts, 3 years on the console, and 1 full year of labor.

Brief Overview

The Precor EFX 225 is our First Place Best Buy Winner in the $1,500 to $3,000 price range and has been a consistent Best Buy winner throughout the years. Precor is a well-known brand for quality fitness equipment and the EFX 225 is a perfect example of a superior elliptical offered in their 200-line series. The EFX 225 is solidly built and contains quality components that make it commercially tough, yet perfectly tailored for in-home use. Furthermore, the EFX 225 is covered with a very generous lifetime warranty on the frame showing the faith Precor has in the lasting quality of their manufactured machine.

Overall Quality

The Precor EFX 225 offers natural trekking experiences on a unique CrossRamp ® pattern as well as motorized ramps for additional challenges on a 15-to-25-degree gradient. The rear drive system enables smooth operations between 16 levels of resistance working in tandem with the moving set of handlebars to assist in toning all relevant body parts. The stationary handlebars capture heartbeat information which is readily displayed on the smaller 5” LCD screen. An additional 12 points of performance information are also displayed on this screen for consumers looking to stay on target.
The Precor EFX 225 has room for two individual users’ ids and carries 10 built in programs including ones specifically targeting glutes and building stamina. Sadly, the EFX 225 does not track workouts outside of the two user ids, nor does it connect to the Preva platform but there is a water bottle holder for hydration needs during exercise sessions for convenience.
