One of the best elliptical Crosstrainers on the market today, made by a company that truly knows fitness, the Precor EFX 556HR Version 2 should be at the top of any fitness wish list. Featuring a unique CrossRamp design that is fixed at 25 degrees, and a stride length of 18 inches, the machine delivers a challenging workout in which running, walking and climbing all play an integral part. There are 20 fine-tuned levels of resistance on the 556HR Crosstrainer—levels that increase or decrease the level of intensity and difficulty. This range of difficulty makes it the perfect machine for all users, regardless of their skill/ ability level and level of fitness. Like the unique pedal system, the handlebars on the machine offer resistance in both directions, providing an upper body workout to go along with the lower body regimen. Ergonomically designed, the handlebars provide multiple gripping options that ensure the comfort of the user.
The large LED display monitor on the Precor EFX 556HR Version 2 offers a split-level view that helps to improve the user’s posture. From this large display console, users can monitor and keep track of a variety of fitness statistics related to their workout. Some of this data includes calories burned, altitude climbed, distance traveled, pace, speed, resistance, watts, METs, elapsed time, and heart rate, among other pieces of data. Heart rate stats are made possible by the intuitive sensors embedded in the handgrips of the machine, which measure the user’s pulse through contact-based technology.
The display monitor on the Precor EFX 556HR Version 2 also gives users access to the 7 pre-programmed workout options on the machine. These programs include a cross training course, which allows users to define intervals and duration; and a challenging cross country course, featuring pre-programmed resistance changes and varying levels of intensity.
