Product Review

Bring the gym into your home and enjoy an efficient, high-caliber workout with the Horizon E700 elliptical trainer. Perfect for rigorous training routines, the E700 is outfitted with a 20-level magnetic brake resistance system and a heavy 14-pound flywheel. The brake system creates more consistent resistance during a workout, while the flywheel carries you through the complete elliptical motion, making the trainer feel extremely natural and not at all choppy. In addition, the trainer offers 12 goal-oriented programs to keep you motivated: three weight loss programs, three cardio stride programs, three power stride programs, a manual program, and two custom workout programs. As a result, you can achieve positive results regardless of your fitness goals. And thanks to Horizon's eTrak technology--which is designed to capture important workout data for a pair of users--it's possible to analyze your current and previous workouts and track your weekly and monthly goals directly through the console.

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.

Success is not just over the horizon, February 15, 2009
J. T. Frazier Jr. "Yadda Yadda" (Hell, MI)
Horizon Fitness can make some nice workout eqipment, but this one has its flaws. The overall product feels cheaply made, from the very short stride length to the plastic control panel it just simply does not feel worth the price. If you are a taller individual then I strongly suggest trying out the ellipticals before buying based on price. With cheaper models I have found that they often have a shorter stride length, which gives you less of an overall workout compared to a longer stride model i.e higher end nordic track which are in the same class. The overall stability of the product is also in question. When I was using this product I felt like it would take little effort to make it tipsy. Try this one out and I think you will agree.

Works well but HUGE, June 20, 2009
Doglets "Kathy" (SC)
I had no idea this would be as big as it is. It's like something you'd use in a gym or fitness center. Very functional, smooth and was extremely easy to assemble, due to the step by step instructions that were very clear. I like using it, but it takes up a lot of space.

Get What You Pay For, March 18, 2009
T. S. Chabuz (Boston)
It's a good machine. I have had the machine for one month and it's Spartan; however, it serves it purpose. It was advertised as a $1200 machine discounted "just for today" for 699. Well, I would be very unhappy with this machine if I paid the 1200. Moreover, at 699 or was it 599, it is a good machine. It has limited "bells and whistles." It's made in China and sturdy. It should give me five years of use or so I expect, then I can feel amortised and replace it.

If your Ruebenesque and need excersise, buy it. If your a jock, move on.
