"I want to buy a Precor EFX Elliptical exercise machine"

Need exercise machine that is low impact, easy on the joints and lower back. I have heard Precor EFX 5.25 is the best, but also is very expensive. Wondering if it is worth the money. Other cheaper ellitical machines that seem ok include NordicTrack AudioStrider, Sole Fitness and Sole Smooth CE 3.6, Yowza Fitness Captiva, and Schwinn 460 Variable Stride Elliptical Trainer. Interested in places to buy and opinions about these machines. Thanks.

Re: I want to buy an Precor EFX Elliptical exercise machine

If you want to buy an elliptical - the Precor series is the only way to go. Think about anytime you go to a sports club - which type of elliptical trainers do they have? You will almost always see a Precor. The reason is that they are good machines, built to last.

Now if you are buying one for your home - you don't need a sports club level machine (some sites will try to sell them to you at a "reduced" price but still it will cost you major $$$). Those machines are made to be used 8-12 hours a day, one user after another, for months and months in a row. Unless you plan on being like a hamster on a running wheel that is unnecessary.

The Precor Home series of machines will be more than adequate and you will know that you are buying quality. I have had mine for several years with fairly regular use (3-5x/week) and it has never caused me any problems.

I would recommend the Precor EFX 5.25 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer

But if you want to spend less you can look into some of the older models which should be adequate.

Precor EFX 5.23 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer

Precor EFX 5.21 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer

If you want an ellipitical, buy Precor and you will be happy with your purchase. I have for sure. It is worth the extra money.

Don't discount SOLE

I've had a Sole F85 treadmill for 5+ years and I have been very happy with the build quality and customer support.

A support example: A few years ago I contacted support to find out the formula they used to calculate calories burned. The customer care rep responded quickly to my request saying he'd find out for me. A day later, he had spoken with Brian in Sole Engineer and retrieved the formula for me (you can see it on my treadmill reply)

I love my Sole treadmill and would buy a Sole Elliptical in a heartbeat.
