Precor EFX 546I Big Body Elliptical
The Precor EFX 546I is a revolutionary elliptical trainer that delivers a smooth and natural feeling workout. With its easy-to-use handgrip sensors that monitor heart rate, this machine is perfect for users who want to stay on top of their cardiovascular health.
One of the key features of the EFX 546I is its CrossRamp technology. This technology allows users to select a ramp angle between 15 and 40 degrees throughout their workout, which isolates and cross trains quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, and calves. With stride lengths varying along the incline from 21.2 to 24.7 inches, users can enjoy a smooth and comfortable workout that is tailored to their needs.
When it comes to glute and quad activation, the EFX 546I is superior to other machines. Studies have shown that working out on an EFX yields significantly more glute and quad activity than any other piece of cardio equipment. This makes it the perfect machine for users who want to target these specific muscle groups.
The EFX 546I also offers direct access to 10 programs, including one fitness test. Users can easily select or change to a new program using the 6 buttons on the console at any time during their workout. The large buttons provide satisfying tactile response and an audible click, making it easy for beginners and experts alike to get on and go with this intuitive control.
The Precor EFX 546I features a durable 6-phase generator system that provides 20 levels of resistance with no contacting parts, reducing friction and wear for a smoother and more efficient workout. With the resistance levels ranging from 18 watts (level 1 at 20 SPM) to 720 watts (level 20 at 100 SPM), the user can tailor their workout to their desired level of intensity. The machine also includes double polyurethane wheels with an oversized axle and sealed bearings with improved seals, which glide on precision extruded aluminum tracks, providing an even distribution of weight. These features make for a smooth and reliable operation, ensuring that the user can focus on their workout without any interruption.
The EFX 546I also features a bio-feedback center with SmartRateTM that provides dedicated feedback on heart rate and calories. SmartRateTM displays your heart rate relative to your target zone for weight loss and cardio training. With fixed arms, a numeric keypad for easy data entry, and compatibility with heart rate telemetry reading using an optional chest strap, this machine is perfect for users who want to track their progress.
The EFX 546I also includes transport wheels in the rear of the machine for easy movement, accessory holders for water bottle, portable music or reading material. It is finished with a two-step powder-coating process which applies a rust-resistant undercoat and a cosmetic topcoat to the steel frame.
Overall, the Precor EFX 546I is a top-of-the-line elliptical trainer that offers users a smooth, natural feeling workout that is tailored to their needs.
