Prior to shipping the machines are put through a 42-point inspection, and then stripped down to the bare frame. Frames are powder-coated to perfection, new parts replace the worn, and the machine is brought back to “like new” condition. The machine undergoes a full quality control inspection, placed under stress testing, and once they pass, sent to our packaging department to be professionally packaged and prepared for shipping.Want more details?

The durable and extremely easy-to-use Precor EFX 556 Version 1 is a fantastic elliptical machine made by the American company who introduced these types of machines to the country way back in the 1990s. Featuring a rear drive system and an eddy current braking system, the machine is very powerful, fluid and responsive at all levels of resistance. Its self-powered nature also makes it very quiet at all speeds. The wide, easy-grip pedals, spaced closely for a more natural movement and feel, adapt to the user’s every movement as he/she moves throughout the 18 inch stride plain. And the ergonomically designed handlebars, placed optimally for the perfect riding posture, add a challenging upper body workout option that provides resistance in both directions.
The Precor EFX 556 Version 1 features a Soft-Touch LED display console through which users select—and receive feedback from—their chosen workout. Among the information that is continuously supplied to the user through the console is dynamic, constant, average and target heart rate; calories burned per minute, per hour and overall; the distance traveled throughout the workout; incline; workout profile, watts, resistance, speed, pace, and METs, among other data. When upgraded, this console can also serve as a type of entertainment portal, through which exercisers can listen to music, charge their devices, watch streaming videos, surf the web or even play games as they work off the pounds.
There are seven pre-installed, integrated workout options from which users can choose on the Precor EFX 556 Version 1. They include a rugged hill course, a fitness test, a cardio or weight loss program, interval training, a workout that focuses on the glutes, and a cross training setting. All of these can be further customized using the 20 easy-to-access levels of resistance, which increase or decrease the intensity of the overall workout.
Our professionally refurbished refurbished elliptical trainers set the industry standard, which competitors can only try to emulate. This process is done to the manufacturer’s specifications and is conducted exclusively in-house, allowing for complete control over quality. Our certified refurbished gym equipment are truly in a class of their own.
This part is the user's direct connection to the elliptical and is the initial way a user may distinguish the machine from new, thus a fresh overlay is key. We replace all overlays with new ones to ensure reliability, longevity and a blemish free machine that will last for the long haul.
All emblems and decals are replaced with new ones, as a pre-requisite to our remanufacturing process. To achieve a "like-new" elliptical, it is imperative that even the smallest details are affected and perfected, adhering with the manufacturer’s original cosmetic specifications.
It is easy to cut costs and use cheap entry level replacement parts such as belts and assemblies but at GFI, we use premium drive belts. Drive assemblies are either rebuilt or recycled and replaced with new ones. These ensure easy use and extend the life of the part and elliptical.
The technicians in our electronics department inspect and run each crosstrainer board through a series of tests using scopes and other sophisticated testing equipment. Often, basic repairs can be made returning the part to a perfect condition. If this is not possible, parts are recycled and replaced.
Our engineering department is responsible for dismantling, diagnosing and rebuilding all alternators/generators. To provide an exceptional Elliptical Trainer, this product must be rebuilt (or replaced) to ensure perfect functionality and performance. Batteries are recycled and replaced as necessary.
We are the only used fitness equipment factory in the United States with our own in-house silica sandblasting and powder coating shop. All of our Elliptical Trainer frames and metal parts are run through this process and can therefore be considered truly refurbished.
We replace the shrouds on our Elliptical Trainers unless they are in pristine condition. Often our competitors will choose to repair and paint these parts which over time will look worn and old, and may just as easily break again. Our process ensures a better crosstrainer overall.
Our Refurbished Machines carry a 1 Year comprehensive parts & labor warranty.
