This versatile, easy-to-use machine is very unique and exceptional.

Additionally, with a ramp that can be inclined up to 40 degrees, and incline levels from 1% to 20%, it affords users the opportunity to target specific muscle groups, such as the quads, calves and hamstrings.
The Precor EFX 546i Experience Series Elliptical comes pre-programmed with 11 challenging workouts. Some of these pre-set workout regimens include: the Quick Start and Manual programs—for those who prefer to create their own workout; 2 modes that focus on the gluteal muscle group; Interval and Weight Loss Interval programs; a Fitness Test; and one program that focuses on basic heart rate control. The best part about these workouts is that users can switch between the various programs on the fly without having to stop and fumble for buttons.
The Precor EFX 546i Experience Series Elliptical is completely self-powered, with a rear drive system and impressive Eddy current braking system that provides the various levels of resistance. Users can monitor all of their vital statistics on the large LED console. These include items such as time, distance, speed, calories and more. Heart rate monitoring comes via the intuitive sensors in the handles of the machine’s biomechanically designed handlebars. There is even an optional chest strap for those who prefer hands-free monitoring.
