I did some reading and research about these machines in the internet. The reviews on this one were pretty good.
I've had my ex-59 for 3 weeks now. I use it everyday and like it.
I did have one part not meet up to expectations and one quick phone call and the part was on it's way - good warranty and customer service.
I'm over six feet tall and almost wish the stride was a little longer, but, honestly, the only thing holding my back from a 'better' or 'longer' workout is only my motivation and drive. The machine will do everything for you that you want it too.
It is smooth, quite and very, very easy to put together.
my wife and kids like it too.
I recommend this product for anyone considering an elliptical machine.
