Precor EFX 544 Elliptical
Reconditioned Precor cross trainers offer exceptional value. These fitness machines are designed for commercial settings, and they’re refurbished after providing a few years of commercial use. The Precor EFX 544 has an adjustable incline, a wireless heart rate monitor, and the brand’s famously smooth ride.
Elliptical Hits: What You Get with the Reconditioned Precor EFX 544
- Heart rate monitoring – This elliptical’s high-quality pulse monitoring system uses a color-coded system to tell users when they’re below, above, and in their target heart rate zones.
- Silence – This elliptical runs without a motor, and it’s just as quiet as brand-new Precor ellipticals.
- Sturdiness and durability –The EFX 544 was designed for club use, so it can easily handle heavy residential use. It has top-of-the-line components such as sealed bearings and a heavy flywheel, and wear parts were replaced during its refurbishing.
- Shorter stride –The 18” stride makes this a suitable trainer for small to average-sized adults.
- Incline – The Precor EFX 544 has an adjustable incline from 10 to 25 degrees. Incline training helps users exercise more muscle groups and burn calories more quickly.
Elliptical Misses: Drawbacks of the Precor EFX 544
- Few programs – This cross trainer has only 8 programs. However, they do get interesting when combined with the variable incline and 20 resistance levels.
- Size – This commercial elliptical has a large footprint and isn’t suitable for small workout spaces.
- Warranty – Refurbished Precors are sold with short warranties.

The Precor EFX 544 is a high-quality trainer that can help people get into shape quickly, thanks to great resistance and a variable incline. It offers great ergonomics for small to average-sized adults, and it’s built to last despite its short warranty.
