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.

So far so good; just put it together

Picked this because the customer reviews on Amazon were better than those on the Schwinn (even though the Schwinn had reportedly been touted by a consumer magazine) and because of the ergonomic features and the promise of quiet operation. Took my husband and I 2-3 hours at most to put together (including 20 minutes trying to fish out some washers and bolts from where they got dropped into the fly wheel housing - not fun; ended up having to remove the little door). Plugged it in and tried it out. Very quiet, though not absolutely quiet. Just a slight whooshing; definitely no clicks or squeaks. We only used the grease enclosed, but did reapply the extra grease left in the little bags that covered the parts. The flywheel housing was bigger than I expected, somehow, but the overall length and width was equal to or less than the specs (good thing, because our space is limited).



I'm very hopeful that all will go well and that I won't hurt myself somehow. Decided to go with the EX59 in part because I'm 5'3'' and thought the 18 inch stride would be more natural.



I'm excited! It's an attractive machine...

Bought the EX-59 without ever seeing one

Bought this machine based on videos and user reviews and I have to say it has been awesome! My wife uses it daily (and I will start soon wink wink). She absolutely loves it.



Construction is fairly simple if you follow instructions well. The Horizon machine is sturdier and smoother than other more expensive brands. Get this one!

Solid for the Price.

This machine came just as described. I'm 6'5"" tall and at the time I started using the EX59 I weighed in at 270 lbs. I started out using a friends rear wheel elliptical but it's pedals were 5"" apart and it made my knees hurt. with the EX59's 0 gap, I don't have that problem anymore. I gave the EX59 a 4 star instead of 5 because I think the weight limit should be 250 lbs instead of 275lbs. This elliptical is an ideal buy for someone who is determined to lose weight. 16 levels of resistance and smooth operation make the EX59 a pleasure to use everyday.

Best machine for its price...

Absolutely worth every cent!

Got this machine 2 months ago and so far I'm satisfied with the purchase.

I had painstakingly researched various elliptical machines, detailing the pros and cons of each one. This machine came out on top compared with all other machines.



PROS: Assembly! This item was very very easy to put together. This was very surprising! It took about 3 hours only because we did it rather slowly and took a lot of breaks. The parts were very well labeled and OILED!!! The manual was also very detailed; you can't ask for more, right? (CON: It didn't describe how to plug the item, but that was easy to figure. Also its better to unplug the item after use as it doesn't have an ON/OFF button).



PROS: SILENT, easy glide. I was pleasantly surprised at the smoothness of this machine. Absolutely no clunky grinding sounds. It moves smoothly and effortlessly. It is solidly built with heavy duty materials so it doesn'€™t feel like it would fall apart on you.



Other PROS: It has a fan that isn't noisy, an mp3 player hook up with speakers, work out plans, a heart rate monitor, resistance levels, calories burned etc.

So far, its perfect for daily use (approx 45 mins - 1 hour)



CONS: the EX-59 is quite long at 73". It doesn't fold away or stow away. It takes a lot of space. I was aware of this and had to make space for it.

Additionally I wish the display were more advanced. I'm getting used to its simplicity; but frankly it gives all the information needed.



OVERALL, this machine has been PERFECT so far and worth EVERY LAST CENT! I already recommended it to a friend that went ahead to buy it.



Look no further, go ahead, its worth it.
