The Horizon EX75 Elliptical – Another solid Horizon Elliptical under $1000

Mrs. Sensei has informed me that we’re going away to Las Vegas for the weekend. I’m assuming this has been in the planning for a couple of weeks now but I seem to have been the last to to know about it. I may be the Treadmill Sensei at the DOJO but at home I merely follow orders…and that is why we’re still married after 20 years. I know who the boss is.

Not wanting to neglect my faithful readers, I sat down quickly to write a Horizon EX75 elliptical review.

Since it came out in late 2006, we’ve had the opportunity to work with a large number of the Horizon EX75 elliptical trainer. The Horizon EX75 is the 2007 version of the Horizon EX44. There are no real differences from the EX44 aside from a few cosmetic changes and the new, sharper orange back-lit display. Luckily, both units are excellent ellipticals for the money.

The Horizon EX75 elliptical comes with a nice 18″ stride and a solid 14.5 pound fly wheel, giving those in search for a sturdy elliptical for under $1000.

For the money, the Horizon EX75 is one of the better designed ellipticals, especially with Amazon selling the units for $200 less than anyone else on the internet at about $799. Although, even at the full price, the EX75 is a contender for a spot in any top ten elliptical list.

20 levels of magnetic resistance, pulse grip and wireless heart rate monitoring options, a 300 pound user weight and 10 programs will give you a very robust elliptical for your cash and gets the Horizon EX75 4 out of 5 golden buddahs from the Treadmill Sensei.
