Pros The EFX 222 is another great addition to the Precor Precision Series Ellipticals. These commercial models have been adapted for in-home use, and the 222 in particular features advanced fitness technology in both its build and user interaction.
Cons The EFX 222 is an investment. Although much more affordable than the newer models in the Precor line, the 222 still prices at around $2500. This can be unrealistic for some. It is also a commercial-grade machine, so its construction is heavy and warranty limited in some regards.
Summary The EFX 222 comes with plenty of features that will keep you challenged and motivated when working out doesn’t seem like a great way to spend an hour. Moving handlebars allow for core and arm engagement, leading to a full-body workout. You can also select from three ramp angles and stride lengths with this manually adjustable machine.
