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.
