Product Review: Precor EFX 546 HR (Version 3) Elliptical
The Precor 546 elliptical is a fantastic choice for virtually anyone who is looking for a commercial elliptical. This unit has been a staple in health clubs across the country over the past couple of years. This is really the product that made Precor the #1 brand in terms of gym quality ellipticals. The unit is a winner across the board when you factor in price, quality, smoothness, and durability.
The Precor Elliptical weighs 230lbs, has 8 programs with a soft touch display, and and adjustable ramp between 13-40 degrees. The frame is made of a solid steel and is one uni-welded piece. The unit comes in a corded or cordless and features heart rate handgrips as well as polar chest strap compatibility. In a general sense, the unit just feels good and is enjoyable to use. Good posture, smooth strides, and the Precor patented crossramp make this machine an absolute pleasure. The ability to adjust and incline the ramp really gives this unit an edge over other ellipticals on the market. This is especially tempting at a mid $2,000 price point. The incline option allows users to work a wider range of motion including the lower areas of the body like the thighs, buttocks, calfs, and those stubborn love handles. Get on this machine for 30 minutes and you’ll be dripping in sweat!!!
Footprint wise the unit doesn’t take up a ton of space sitting at about a 3ft x 7ft. The machine itself is a hunk of metal and is easy to clean and there is virtually no maintenence. This unit makes for a good addition to anyone’s garage, basement, or workout room. I also highly recommend the Precor 546 HR Elliptical for training studios, condominium complexes, and hotels. Your clients and guests will really appreciate and recognize the Precor name and the ease of use for all levels of users.
So if you’re not sure which elliptical or Precor to get, confused about versions, this is the slam dunk (go Lakers!), high end, one-size-fits-all elliptical that I would recommend. It’s a good price, feels good, looks good, and is still featured in major health clubs from California to Florida.
