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.
