New Horizon Ellipticals – EX55 , EX65 , EX75

Read Other Elliptical Reviews

Ohiyo!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks but we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and your Treadmill Sensei promises he will be back to his regular 5 days a week schedule of posting treadmill and elliptical reviews. The DOJO has been insanely busy with all of the work we lined up from the show in Denver two weeks ago. Today, tho, I will be posting a couple of things — one is an announcement and then, later on in the day, a review.

One of the highlights of the show for me was the Horizon booth. The DOJO has been working as a Horizon service tech for 5 or so years now and they’ve always treated us well. Add to that their great product and you have all the signs of a love affair. Anyway, to go along with the new line of Horizon treadmills I spoke about earlier this week, there is a new batch of Horizon ellipticals on the…er…horizon as well (pardon the pun). These units are all just tweaks and slightly upgraded versions of last years Horizon elliptical models. The main focus of the redesign is the monitors. The new series monitors are a lot sharper and easier to read and the controls are a bit more ergonomical than the older ones.

About My Treadmill Reviews

TreadmillMy treadmill reviews are both subjective and objective. They are objective in the sense that I will provide you with information about each machine, such as motor, weight capacity and other features. But they are subjective in the sense that I am really giving my opinion of each treadmill. You may agree or disagree with my opinion, but my hope is that my elliptical and treadmill reviews can be helpful to you in making a decision on what to buy. Remember that each review is just what I think. You can always check out Treadmill Doctor, Treadmill Review Guru or these other treadmill reviews if you want another opinion.
