Precor EFX 5.21 Elliptical
Bottom Line:The Precor EFX 5.21 offers only the most essential features of an elliptical trainer, and the lack of moving handlebars makes saying no to this elliptical machine an easy choice for most users.
Thoughts: If working out just your lower body and space savings in your home are your primary concerns when looking for an elliptical trainer, the Precor 5.21 will get the job done. This is Precor's least expensive residential elliptical trainer currently being offered. It offers a manually adjustable incline ramp, 8 preset workout programs, and 16 resistance levels. While this machine does have some elements of Precor quality, it lacks stability at fast paces, and felt very uncomfortable with respect to hand positioning. We would recommend steering clear of the Precor 5.21 and upgrading to a machine with moving handle bars and some more workout features. Check out a company like Smooth Fitness, which offer great elliptical trainers with more features and the same level of quality at lower prices.
