The Horizon Elliptical Trainer
The Horizon Elliptical is an affordably priced elliptical that comes with a one year warranty. It is considered a good buy for the money. People who have used it say that the ride is comfortable because the pedals level on their own.
One of the problems with the Horizon Elliptical is that the brakes, which are mechanical, break down and really need to be periodically taken care of. The upper body workout, which you get with the handlebars in motion, can be difficult and uncomfortable for shorter people to reach and use.
The Horizon Elliptical doesn’t seem to be built as well as other higher end type ellipticals and may require servicing often. This machine may not be a really long lasting piece of equipment, but it’s still considered to be worth buying. Because of the problem with reaching the handlebars on the Horizon Elliptical, you should really test out a demo in the store to make sure that you can use it. If you decide to purchase a Horizon
Elliptical it would probably be a good idea to also purchase an extended warranty.
The Horizon Elliptical will feel different then the elliptical that you might use in a gym because the flywheel is on the reverse end of the machine.
The Horizon Elliptical has four different models. They are the Horizon e51, the Horizon e52, the Horizon e53, and the Horizon e54hr.The main differences in these models are the extras, like the heart rate monitors, which are part of the electronic system of the machine.
