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?

A mid-size elliptical machine that delivers full-size results, the Precor EFX 556i Experience Series Elliptical is a first-rate and long lasting piece of fitness equipment that delivers a full upper and lower body workout in one machine. The durable and very versatile elliptical, which boasts 20 adjustable and gradually-increasing resistance levels, utilizes a 6-phase generator system, and the over-sized, non-slip pedals, which are fixed optimally at 20 degrees, never require any adjustment. The 556i has a large 21.5 inch stride plain. This allows users the maximum in terms of range of motion. And the heavy-duty steel-welded frame supports users weighing up to 350 pounds.
The Precor EFX 556i Experience Series Elliptical comes standard with 8 pre-set workouts. Users can set the machine for heart rate control or weight loss. They can also challenge themselves on the hill climb or cross country course; perform fitness testing; or create their own unique program using the manual or Quick Start options. Best of all, users can switch from program to program as they use the machine without losing any of their data. The handlebars on the 556i are spaced at the optimal distance to reduce strain on the shoulders and joints, and the deck is set at the perfect angle for working out the glutes and hamstrings.
The large display console on the Precor EFX 556i Experience Series Elliptical measures a number of different fitness benchmarks. Some of these include resistance level, METS, workout profile, calories burned, time remaining, speed, distance and more. The console supports several different languages and continuously monitors heart rate for optimal performance. Unlike the inaccuracy of other display panels, the heart rate monitor on the 556i is extremely reliable. Its sensors, located in the grips of the handlebars and in the optional chest strap, were developed for accuracy by the Seattle Performance Medicine Institute.
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.
