Horizon Elliptical Customer Feedback

I bought a Horizon EX-59, enjoyed it for a couple months, but then a vibration, rattle, knocking, and not so smooth action set in for good.

I thought it might go away or "break in," but nope, it has only gotten worse and I am taking it back for a new one.

I have decided to go with the Schwinn 430 online at Amazon.com. Waiting for its arrival.

Horizon CE5.2 Elliptical User Review

by Karen Dow
(Dartmouth, N.S., Canada)


Editor's Note: This is an older model. Check out our latest Horizon elliptical reviews here.

First off, let's be practical. What's the most important thing to consider when shopping for an elliptical? Is it the price, the impressive looks, the multitude of new and advanced/innovative high-tech features, the seemingly endless array of fancy bells & whistles? No, none of the above.

The main thing to look for is the ergonomics. Because what's the good of all the fancy gizmos and gadgets if you're never going to be comfortable while using your machine?

If you're not going to enjoy your workouts, guess what.....your elliptical is going to end up being just another dust-gathering (and likely, very expensive) coathanger.

On the other hand, when you have a unit that "feels" right you not only enjoy your workouts, you look forward to the next workout. And that, folks, is where the Horizon CE5.2 comes in.

If you're of average stature and proportion you're going to love this machine. When you work out on this quiet and smooth-operating exerciser it feels like it was tailor-made for you. The SixStar Certification Platform.....BRILLIANT!

And for me, 10 program options is plenty, 10 resistance levels is more than enough, the 18" stride with articulating, properly angled foot pedals feels just right, the machine (once properly leveled) feels both stable and sturdy at all times, and it was easy to assemble.

The 3-speed fan and versatile speaker system are just icing on the cake. I've been using this well-designed and well-built little beauty almost daily for about a month now and couldn't be more pleased.

And to top it all off I was lucky enough to get it on sale for the unbelievably low price of $499. Incredible value, great elliptical.....highly recommended.

Horizon Fitness CSE3 HR Elliptical Trainer

by Robert F.
(Peshtigo, Wisconsin, USA)

We purchased this elliptical brand new. The machine always made loud squeeky noises. One arm broke off right away. A pin broke. Recently the main shaft snapped in two. The retail store did not provide any service.

Horizon E701 Elliptical - Save Your Money

by Stacey
(Norfolk, NE)

We have little space so we needed a small machine.
The price of the Horizon E701 was a little high, $600.00 at Dicks with tax.

With two of us using it daily for six months for 30 minuntes each, the machine lasted only 6 months. The bar that is attached to the wheel broke. Nothing was where the bolts were. The bar broke 5 minuntes into the excercise.

It is not covered in the warranty and there are no replacement parts for this. We are now out 100 dollars a month.

We could have joined a gym for 700 dollars a year but chose to have this Horizon elliptical trainer in the comfort of our home.

We can't even get the bolts off to have it welded so we can use it again. Trash bill will be another $20.00 otherwise we won't be able to get rid of it.

I say save your money and get a better machine, and a better brand.
