Bring the gym into your home and enjoy an efficient, high-caliber workout with the Horizon EX-57 elliptical trainer, which works your legs as well as your upper body. Perfect for rigorous training routines, the EX-57 offers an eight-level electronic resistance system, along with a heavy 14-pound flywheel that maintains pedal and arm momentum while offering a smooth, quiet operation. More significantly from a user perspective, it offers nine goal-oriented programs. You can choose one of three different goals (time, distance, and calories) and one of three terrains (manual, reverse train, and hills). The crisp LCD screen, meanwhile, offers key workout feedback, helping you develop an effective training regimen.

Horizon employs a heavy-duty flywheel that provides continuous velocity, so as your feet move the pedals, the flywheel's momentum carries you through the complete motion. As a result, the trainer feels very natural and not at all choppy. Plus, the flywheel is extremely quiet, making the trainer ideal for home use. Horizon also applies a magnetic brake to the flywheel, creating more consistent resistance during a workout. And the instep-stacked flywheel design--where the flywheel sits above the pedals rather than in line with them--delivers a lower step-on height for easy access, along with a stride length that's longer, more natural, and more versatile regardless of the user, workout type, and fitness level. As an added benefit, the unit is smaller and shorter than other ellipticals, so it fits in almost any room, including low-ceiling basements.

Horizon's Ergoflow elliptical geometry is built around your body, not the machine's components. The distance between the pedals have also been narrowed to create a more natural walking motion, and the pivoting footpad imitates how your foot's position changes as you move forward. And a more natural, ergonomic movement means less stress on your knees, hips, and lowers back, so you enjoy longer workouts and faster results.

About Elliptical Trainers
Elliptical trainers represent the next wave of advancement in low-impact cardiovascular exercise machines and continue to grow in popularity. By simulating motions experienced through walking, stepping, cycling, and skiing, elliptical machines allow for a smooth and fluid motion while building strength in the arms and legs. Similar to the exercise position for treadmills, elliptical trainers are used by standing in an upright position while holding the handrails of the machine. With elliptical trainers, however, your feet remain in the foot pedals throughout the exercise regimen and circulate in a smooth and seamless motion, resulting in little to no impact on the knees, back, and hips.

Elliptical trainers are compatible for all ages and fitness levels and allow you to select the difficulty level through the incline and intensity settings. Additionally, elliptical trainers allow you to determine the complexity of your workout based on your needs, all while listening to music, watching television, or reading a magazine while exercising in the comfort and safety of your own home.

Many elliptical trainers include an array of challenging programs, forward and reverse directional movement, EKG grip pulse handles, a lightweight portable design with easy fold-up capability, and a monitor displaying calories burned, distance, speed, time, and heart rate. Other types of exercise machines, namely treadmills and bikes, offer excellent cardiovascular exercise and muscular training for the legs in a forward-motion exercise. Elliptical trainers take this to the next level by offering an upper and lower body workout with dual motion, challenging and diverse programs, and a low-impact exercise machine that won't strain sensitive joints.

Horizon EX-57 Review:

After a lot of research (I narrowed my decision down to the EX-57 and the Schwinn 430), I decided on the Horizon because of the warranty. Plus, I was able to try the machine out beforehand at my local Sears. I knew I wanted a front fly-wheel, since the ellipticals I've tried with rear flywheels feel wobbly. Both the Schwinn 430 and Horizon EX-57 have excellent reviews online, but the Horizon offers one year of labor versus Schwinn's 90 days, and the machine was actually a little less expensive.

Delivery:
I elected for Free Super Saver Shipping. Two business days after ordering, I received a call from the shipping company, ABF. A very polite man made a delivery appointment with me for the following week. My item arrived just five business days after ordering. On the day of delivery, ABF called to say they were in the neighborhood and would be arriving in 15-20 minutes. The delivery guy was very polite and friendly, and he carried the box inside to my living room floor. The box itself was in good condition, only a little dirty with some slight gouges in the top layer of cardboard, nothing that alarmed.

Since we have a townhouse apartment and the elliptical was going upstairs, we opened the box downstairs and carried the parts upstairs. All were in excellent cosmetic condition. We had already purchased a gym mat from Kmart at a great price - less than thirty dollars.

Assembly:
There were three or four small bags of parts that were full of grease. Keep that in mind. You will want to have some paper towels or rags handy. We just used one of the larger pieces of packing styrofoam as a tray for all the greasy parts. I even added a little WD-40 to a few of the bolts and washers during assembly, to ward off squeaks.

The machine was in very sturdy packaging and I was very impressed. I was unable to lift the main part (with the fly-wheel) out of the box so I waited until my husband got home from work. It was still too heavy to lift right out of the box. We were able to pull/push the box up stairs into the workout room.
It was my new machine and project. I had so much fun, the instructions were as easy as Lego instructions, and it only took me 2 hours from start to finish. I have added photos, please check them out. The parts were sectioned out in the order of the steps (hardware bag #1 is for Step 1, etc.) and all of the needed tools are included (a screwdriver, hex wrench, 2 different size allen wrenches).
I broke the box down and started putting it together right on top of the box. I'm glad I did that because when you put some of the parts together (bolts and/or stable bar) some excess grease will come out. Have a throw away rag handy because you will need it. Step 1 was attaching the wheels. The wheels made it a breeze to situate and move it to where I wanted it be positioned.
Once it was together, I tried it out. The stride isn't as long/wide as I'm used to but it is smooth and quiet. It doesn't take up too much room so my husband is planning to get a couple other machines (a spinning bike, please). I'm looking for a TV to mount on the wall and spend all day on the elliptical! My first "Hill Climb" workout will be in the morning.

UPDATE:
October 19, 2010
I still love this machine. The only other elliptical I have used was at the gym (Proform). The tension on this machine is tighter than on the large machines at the gym, due to the fact that the stride is shorter.
I thought I'd just start my workouts on the levels that I had been working out at the gym. WRONG!

This is the first review I have ever written about anything, but this is just so bad and such a waste of money that I don't want anyone else to get screwed like I have. I purchased this machine in January 2010. Since I purchased the machine, it has broken 3 times now. The first time the weld on the right foot pedal broke, I only weight 185 pounds which is well under the limit for this machine. I called support, they sent another. It took about a week. The second time the display stopped working right in the middle of a work out. Called support again, they told me it could be one of 3 things. It could be the power cord, the internal cord that runs to the console, or the console itself. So they sent all 3 parts. This time it took 2 weeks. I plugged in the new power cord and it started working again. I'd say it worked fine for about two more weeks and now it doesn't work again. The console doesn't work at all again. So now I have to take apart the machine for the third time now and replace all the electrical components in hopes that its going to work again. I'm sure that if i wasn't mechanically inclined and had to wait for a technician, these repairs would take significantly more time.

I am considering contacting the manufacturer to get my money back, but in the manual it states that it would have to be shipped back at MY EXPENSE. I am not really sure what I am going to do about this machine at this point. I wasted 600 dollars on a machine based on favorable reviews. This machine has done nothing except cause me more aggravation than its worth. It was a complete waste of money in my opinion.

Update:

Since replacing the power cord seems to have solved all the electrical related problems, I raised the rating on this item.
