Product Summary

The Horizon EX-59 is a front-drive elliptical that was ergonomically designed to provide ease of use. A step-up height of 10.75 inches, as well as pedals that are closer together than a standard elliptical, allow for more of a natural range of motion that mimics walking. The stride length is 18 inches, which is smack dab in the middle of the range you want to see on ellipticals, plus it comes equipped with 10 levels of magnetic resistance. 

Other positives include the tech capabilities, namely Bluetooth connectivity and speakers, plus a built-in device holder and USB port to charge your phone or tablet while you’re working out. The LCD display shows metrics including calories, distance, heart rate, program level, speed, time, and watts, and the machine comes with five pre-programmed workouts: Calorie, Distance, Intervals, Manual, and Weight Loss.

With a footprint of 74 inches by 25 inches by 64.5 inches, the EX-59 is not a very compact machine. While a weight capacity of 300 pounds and a 14-pound flywheel points to less durability for long-time use, the machine does have a lifetime warranty on the frame, which is a definite plus. There’s a one-year warranty on parts and labor.
