I read hundreds of reviews about the various Horizon Fitness products listed on Amazon, and finally decided to purchase the EX-69-2, the successor to the EX-69 elliptical. The EX-69 had a lot of favorable reviews- at the time there were no reviews for the new model so I was hesitant. My initial impression with this model has been excellent. First, take the reviewers seriously when they say this is a large package! The box arrived on a pallet and weighed over 200 pounds, be sure to have some help moving it. I ended up doing what one reviewer suggested in other reviews and moved the parts individually into the room where it would be assembled.

The box had some dings on the outside, but upon opening the package, its clear a lot of thought went into packaging it. The top of the box is reinforced with a wooden support, presumably to add structural strength to such a bulky item. There was no damage to any of the components inside. The parts themselves are labeled L and R, easing assembly. The instructions were pretty straightforward, I'd suspect anybody who has ever assembled Ikea furniture will be able to successfully put this together. I took other reviewers advice and applied some white lithium grease to all moving parts. During assembly it will be pretty evident areas that will be moving. So far I haven't experienced any of the dreaded squeaks that other users have complained about.

I found the overall quality of the Elliptical to be outstanding for a sophisticated exercise machine priced so reasonably. All parts appear to be strong and well welded. I didn't experience any of the thread issues other reviewers had with some of the older versions, everything went together very smoothly.

i researched elliptical machines for several weeks before deciding on the Horizon 69-2. i wanted something that felt like the ones at the gym, without the $2k price tag. this machine had mostly great reviews on amazon and after watching a few you tube videos, we narrowed it down to this one & a live strong. after reading that horizon is made by live strong, we decided to save a few hundred and order this.

the setup took right around 2 hours for my husband and I and we are not very handy. we were also multi-tasking - keeping our 2 small children busy so they wouldnt get hurt on the machine. the directions are written well & have pretty decent pictures. we were impressed with how the hardware was set-up into "steps" so it was opened as needed. it wasnt all over getting lost & we didnt have to waste time sorting through tons of pieces to find what we needed. also included were all the tools needed (minus screwdriver) but my husband ended up using his instead.

the machine seems solid & well built. the stride is perfect - cheaper machines usually have a short stride (18" or less) so for an affordable machine the 20" is great! the ride is smooth, it works in reverse & the console is great...it has several different programs, settings, shows time, calories burned, distance etc. without being too fancy or hard to use. speakers for an ipod/phone hookup (which i have only tested but dont use as we have a radio in workout room.)

i would definitely recommend this elliptical

After spending quite some time researching, comparing, and reading tons of reviews regarding various brands of Elliptical machine, I decided to buy "Horizon 69-2" from Amazon since the reviews were a bit better.

Within a couple days after placing the order, I received a call for delivery arrangement & the machine was delivered 5 days later without any problem other than the fact that as other reviewers stated the box is very heavy (easily over 200lbs). The delivery guy told me point blank that his job is just to drop off the box in loading dock area; I'm a 5ft tall, 130lbs female, thank God for elevator & the very nice, helpful & strong HOA maintenance gentleman that help me get the box to my unit.

As the box got off the truck, I noticed a few dents which show up on a couple of the parts as I unpacked, but nothing major (just some scratches & a slightly damage 'left Lower Handlebar' that I'll need to get a replacement for). Other than that, the parts were nicely packaged & seemed to be all there. But the 2 bits of tools provided can't really do the job without a screwdriver.

The elliptical was easy to assemble thanks to the instructions provided. My 12 years old son & I got it done within 2 hrs or so, but we couldn't completely finished the job since the 'left Upper Handlebar' refused to be set in place. I think the bar is defective or the built-in screws are in too deep. Also, there's an annoying clunky sound that seems to be coming from the left side, and I have no clue why is that happening. Quick observation: any issue with this elliptical so far is from the left side (I don't know if that has any significance or not).

Overall, aside from the few issues mentioned, I think this is a good home workout machine!

My son has the Horizon Fitness EX-69 Elliptical. I'm lucky enough to live near him and use this 3 times a week! It works very smoothly and we have not experienced any knocking or other problems common with less expensive ellipticals.

I was there when the elliptical arrived and I helped him put it together. It took a little while to assemble, but it was not difficult.

It's really easy to get on and off of this model, because it was designed with a lower profile. The foot pads have a good grip that makes it easy to use.

The console lets you select targets based on calories, distance, or time. You can program it with custom targets, including resistance. There are built in workouts, including one that feels like you are rolling up and down hills. It's a real workout, but it's also fun!
The Horizon EX-69 is much nicer than than the brand he used to own. His old one made a knocking sound when it was in use, and it didn't have as many features. The EX-69 is packed with features for the price!

It isn't as high quality as the ones in the gym, but it doesn't cost much either. It comes with a one year parts and labor warranty, which is better than many other similar items these days. If something bad is going to go wrong, it will probably happen while it's still under warranty.

Overall, we think this is a fantastic machine. It's smooth, offers all the features we looked for, and it seems to be holding up very well after 3 months of daily use.
