These preset exercise programs come with different levels of resistance.
The cross ramp is adjustable between 15 and 40 degrees through the control panel. The stride length is between 21.2 and 24.7 inches and you have 20 real levels of resistance between 18 and 720 watts. There is a pulse rate monitor with the touch and wireless capabilities and the chest strap is not included and you may want to purchase it separately if you’ll be using it. You have the touch heart rate sensors on both fixed handles in the middle. It offers you a very fluid and smooth motion that literally reflects your body’s movement. You’ll experience a very natural and smooth, amazing workout consistently.
This commercial grade cross trainer is very easy to operate with the intuitive control panel and you can start using it immediately. By changing the incline levels- adjusting the cross ramp you will be working on slightly different muscles in both your lower and upper body. Precor EFX 576i has a heavy- duty, sturdy construction, weighs 338 pounds and measures 80 x 32 x 68 inches and will occupy as little space as possible. It is shipped totally assembled and ready to use straight out of the box. You will not need to assemble anything. You can just put a yoga mat underneath to protect your hardwood floors.
It will prove very sturdy, stable and durable even during your toughest workout sessions. The panel in front of you is a biofeedback center with a standard CSAFE interface, SmartRate, Tap Control, touch pulse rate monitor, Quick Start, pre-set programs and more. It offers a much better workout for your hamstrings, quads, calves and glutes than treadmill, bike or stair climber. You can call them on 877-712-2334 in case of any questions or problems or use the Amazon order page. It comes with a warranty of one year on the parts, 90 days for labor and parts and ten years for the frame.
If you get one of the fully refurbished ones with the brand new ramp and wheels, repainted and fully cleaned and with a new battery, the warranty is 6 months for the parts. The Precor 576i is the older version of the EFX 835 with a different display panel. The performance, functionality, programs, build quality, motor etc. are the same and you should also look at the height of both units and the ceiling clearance when you’re considering the two models. The EFX 835 weighs 340 pounds and measures 80 x 30 x 67 inches. And currently it costs significantly more at Amazon.com. You need a ceiling clearance of roughly 20 inches for the Precor 576i. Please remember that these are commercial level elliptical cross trainers that can accommodate taller or larger adults or use by many people a day. And please note that the Precor units sold here come out of gyms or hotels and they are refurbished.
