            The Conclusion

            I have been using the Precor Ellipticals for about 5 years now and to this day it is still one of the few cardio machines that I enjoy using on a daily basis. After 10 years of playing competitive travel soccer I have acquired several injuries that have prevented me from doing certain exercises for a long period of time. However, with the Precor EFX 447 I am able to work on the elliptical for 30-40 minutes with little to no joint pain. I believe this is because of the Crossramp technology that delivers a smooth natural running/walking motion and allows me to work at varying incline and resistance levels with zero-friction or rough movements. Once unable to work at high incline or resistance levels, I am now able to work at an incline of 15-20 and focus on the muscle groups that are important to my fitness goals without feeling like I am doing harm to my joints and post workout I don’t have any pain from impact or overuse.

The EFX 447 delivers an exceptional, low-impact, total body workout that is sure to please every user with outstanding results. User’s goals can be accomplished with the 447 thanks to its easy to use LCD console that keeps users engaged and motivated throughout their workout & assists them in reaching their fitness goals! The LCD console allows users to customize their workouts and keep track of their progress with the User Profiles, provides 10 present workouts & 20 levels of resistance to assist users in taking their workout to the next level.

            Another feature of the EFX 447 that I enjoy is the 4 User Profiles that are included in the console. The user profile allows users to create personal preferences and create a workout that is unique to their fitness goals, as well as receive weekly workout updates to help users track their progress each week. This is a great feature for the EFX because each workout on the EFX 447 is unique to my needs and fitness goals, which I love!

            This a great product for a home gym because it provides a smooth, quiet, and comfortable ride throughout the duration of a workout.
