Horizon EX 56 Elliptical Trainer Review
The Horizon EX-56 Dual Action Elliptical Trainer is a successor of well known, older version the EX-55. Since 2010, the EX56 has been also replaced with new, upgraded version - EX57, which is replaced now with the EX59. All in all, now there is just one model within the EX series, the mentioned EX 59.
Anyway, when the EX56 was introduced to the market, it was a modern, club-quality piece of equipment, equipped with a 14-pound flywheel for fluid motion. At that time, it was the standard in its price range. It had a new, fresh apperance and nice designed clear LCD screen for key feedback. When you start exercising on the EX-56 you'll see that it is in fact redesigned older model EX-55. The real differences are new design, some electronics, and programs. Seems Horizon uses higher quality parts than parts used in older model. It confirms 20 year extended warranty on brake system. The new EX56 has retained a low pedal height for easy entry and exit, just 9". In fact it is the lowest step-on height in the industry.
