Precor EFX 546i Experience Elliptical Crosstrainer (mainly lower body)
The Precor EFX 546i Experience Crosstrainer is a high quality elliptical for people who primarily want to work out their lower bodies.

This elliptical also features the Experience console which allows users to easily change resistance to suit their fitness routine.

While they are both commercial grade effective cardio machines, the main difference between the 546i and the 556i is that the latter has the added benefit of upper body movement. The 556i has a fixed ramp model, which still allows for a pushing and pulling motion in addition to working out the lower body and the cardio benefit. The Precor EFX 556i Experience Crosstrainer also has a console that allows users to adjust their workout or try out one of the 10 preset programs included with the machine.

Of the three Precor Experience Elliptical Crosstrainers detailed in this post, the EFX 576i offers the most customizability in terms of upper body movement. While the 556i has a fixed ramp arm, the 576i’s upper-body handle-bar’s ramp angle can be adjusted so you can put your hands in a variety of positions for the most comfortable upper and lower body workout. The 576i also features the signature Experience console with all the features that the other elliptical crosstrainers have, such as heart-rate monitor and how many calories you have burned.
Precor AMT 100i Elliptical Crosstrainer (everything adjustable)
The Precor AMT 100i Elliptical Crosstrainer is easily the most sought after elliptical machine on the market right now and for good reason. This machine offers an extremely high amount of versatility in regard to both the upper and lower body. Users of this machine can change their stride lengths, walk or run, do deep lunges and much more, all on the fly. The Precor AMT 100i does not require any manual adjustments, the machine automatically adapts to your body’s changes. It is a machine that must be tried out to truly understand. Similar to the other elliptical, the Precor AMT 100i also has a heart-rate monitor, different programs and resistance level adjustment.
