Why We Made This

Some of us are happy to skip the sunroof. So what if we’re not flashy? We can still get a sweet ride and arrive on time. That’s the mentality of the EX59. It’s got all the comfort and quality you expect from the Horizon line. It delivers all the results you want. It just doesn’t have the luxury features you’d rather not pay for. You know. There’s no sunroof.

Very smooth!

I'm trying to lose weight and keep it off. An important part of my strategy is daily walks. With winter approaching, I have been looking for a way to keep in shape when it's too nasty out to walk. Driving to the gym is something that takes extra time so I decided to get an elliptical trainer. I've also considered Nordictrack, Sole and Precor models. The sales person at Dunhams in Royal Oak was very helpful in pointing out features that were important to me. One such feature is the wheels that ride on top of tubes instead of in little troughs that can collect debris and make the elliptical less smooth to use. At first, I ordered a Nordictrack online because it cost about $200 less than the EX-59 and I cancelled my order when I saw how smooth the EX-59 is and how well it's made. I managed to find the EX-59 on clearance so I got a very good price that was not much more than the Nordictrack I had ordered earlier.

Assembly was not as easy as some reviewers here have reported. Holding 2 teflon washers in place while inserting a bolt through was not something I found to be that easy, but overall I'd say assembly was well thought out and it's obvious this thing well built.

The console is a bit basic but that doesn't bother me. It is very handy to be able to simply tap one of the resistance levels around the perimeter of the console to get the brake engaged at that resistance. The EX-59 heart rate monitor seems as accurate as the ones on the $5000 Precor and Life Fitness ellipticals at the gym. The EX-59 has no power switch so I've dedicated a power strip next to the elliptical to shut it off when I'm done.

Pros:
Construction
Simplicity
Natural "flat ellipse" motion
Smoothness - as smooth as those $5000 commercial ellipticals at the gym
15 minutes on the elliptical can equal 45 minutes of walking

Cons:
No power switch
Loud console beeps
Only 10 resistance levels

Good Equipment, Terrible Service

I've used the elliptical a few times and so far it's great. Delivery and customer service regarding the delivery were pretty much abysmal. My guaranteed indoor delivery was actually delivered outdoors. I'll note that I tried to resolve this with Horizon customer service via e-mail and haven't received a response in weeks. At least you put together a good elliptical, Horizon.

Works Great, Feels Great, and is very quite

I bought this product couple of months ago, I have been using this regularly for the past 2 months and have been feeling great about it. It works just great, is very quite. The Product was delivered in a very short amount of time, and the assembly took about 90 Mins with 2 people doing it. Step documentation was very helpful and we were able to complete the assembly with ease. It works great, I have not had to even try the other resistance level's and the level 1 itself has been good enough so far. I hope I will see results in a few months.

Easy to assemble, quiet, smooth, really like it...

Assembly of the unit took about 2 hours and my husband was surprised it went together so easily. Its quiet & smooth. For the price it can't be beat. Wish it had an on &off switch vs. having to plug it in all the time. Not a big deal though. Shipping was quick. Just be aware it comes in a trailer truck, so glad we own a tractor with forks otherwise would have been hard to get off the truck and up our long driveway.
