Precor manufactures a wide range of high-end ellipticals. The EFX 5.25 is a relatively simple model. Besides the 5.19, it’s the earliest model in the EFX series to have movable arms. A highlight is its 25° CrossRamp incline.

Overall Rating for the Precor EFX 5.25 Elliptical
Like other elliptical trainers in its series, the Precor EFX 5.25 is known for its smooth glide, whisper-quiet operation,
and reliable engineering. This elliptical is also a cross trainer with movable arms. The next step up with moving handlebars is the 5.33.
This is a very well-built machine, but it loses a star for its combination of a high price and lack of extras. The more advanced Precor ellipticals have iPod ports, iFit technology, and other upgrades.
If a Precor won’t fit your budget, check out other respectable but lower-priced brands such as Smooth as Sole.
