Pros The EFX 833 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer is an exact replica of the machine you will find on the floor of professional health clubs. This means you can count on it being an incredibly reliable and durable machine, as well as having the ability to provide a top-notch workout experience.
Cons Because of its commercial-grade parts and programs, this console is not nearly as adjustable as some other treadmills in its price range. It is also large and not designed to be folded up when not in use.
Summary The EFX 833 Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer is a professional grade machine, which means it can never be worn out by only a few users. This dynamic machine is incredibly reliable and features 20 levels of resistance and a ramp that adjusts from 13-40 degrees. It’s a likeable machine that will challenge you physically but does not offer a huge range of custom options.
