Take one stride on the Horizon™ EX-69 Elliptical and you'll feel the difference. The EX-69 is built with quality you can feel. Standard features like a club-style 14.3-pound flywheel and biomechanically engineered, SixStar Certified™ frame ensure you'll get a great workout with hassle-free performance for years to come.
The EX-69 uses a 20" FLATellipse™ foot path to mimic your body's natural walking and running motion. The result is a smooth, natural stride that's easy on your knees and ankles, while providing exceptional calorie-burning results.
Plus, with the integrated upper body handles, you'll get a full-body workout that's sure to strengthen, tighten and tone. There's even a console-mounted COOLfit™ workout fan and built-in speakers to keep you comfortable and motivated during your workout.
And just to make sure your workout is challenging and fun, the EX-69 features 10 different programming options, complete with on-the-fly changes and an Advanced Goal Center. Choose from target workouts, terrain programs, goal-based workouts and custom programs.
Derived from extensive biomechanics research and user panel testing, SIXstar Certification™ is a unique combination of the six key elements needed to deliver the smoothest, most natural elliptical feel available:

After visiting a number of sports stores and reading the reviews of ellipticals I chose the EX69. It was delivered as promised, and actually took me less than 2 hours to assemble it. Did it solo, and had no trouble. The only negative was that the water bottle attachment doesn't line up very well with the screw holes. Other than that both my wife and I are extremely happy with the product. The two user settings are convenient. Product is quieter than I expected. If you don't need (or want in my case) the power incline of the EX79, then this is the way to go. Excellent value. We expect to use this for a long time.
I bought the EX-69 Elliptical and could not be any more pleased with my purchase. It arrived very quickly and without damage. The installation took me about 2-1/2 hours as I assembled it very carefully. Please note that the assembly instructions and the way the parts were kitted made it exceptionally easy to assemble. (I was missing one washer and will contact CS for that item.) After assembly I had the pleasure of testing it out and that is when the surprises began. For the extraordinary low price for such a solid piece of equipment--with all of its features--I was simply amazed. The unit is dead quiet. It operates exceptionally smoothly. It has features such as Goal Setting that accumulates your workouts toward a goal you've set. It has a three-intensity fan. It has 20 (I believe) resistance settings and 9 (I believe) program settings. It has an easy-to-use level adjustment. It has an audio port to plug in an iPod and adjustable stereo speakers. The foot holders are very close together, which makes using the elliptical feel extremely natural. And, depending on how far forward or backward you stand on the foot pads you get a stepping or gliding motion. I could go on and on but you get the idea. This unit is an enormously good buy (and was rated well in Consumer Reports). I can't imagine your being disappointed.
This product was exceptionally easy to set up and get going on. My wife and I both use the machine frequently and love evey minute. I use a higher tension setting and go for shorter periods of time while my wife does less tension and can go for miles. This machine is not the best elliptical I've ever used, that prize does to a $3,000 Precor machine. But, this machine is really close to the Precos for less than 1/3 of the price. All in all, great machine.
Went together easy, took about an hour. Elliptical runs and feels very smooth. We have only had it about 2 weeks and as long as it works as it has, we will be very pleased with the unit. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an elliptical trainer.
