Individuals seeking a challenging workout will have difficulty with the Precor Elliptical EFX 5. Adjusting the incline requires the individual to stop during the workout, change the incline and resume. The time it takes to change the incline could result in lowering the heart rate of the individual, thus resulting in weight loss not maximized. The design flaw could potentially deter an individual from using the Precor Elliptical EFX 5.

Upon further research, we found the Precor Elliptical EFX 5 not to be designed for individuals with above average height. Individuals taller than average are forced to bend over in order to use the Precor Elliptical EFX 5, creating an unnatural range if motion.
