Buy The Horizon Fitness E52 Elliptical Trainer

I finished watching Fight Club. Saw it for the first time and did not see the twist coming. Did you? If you can’t tell by my late 90’s movie reference, I’m in the mood to reminisce the past. That’s why I’ve decided to provide a review of the Horizon Fitness E52 Elliptical Trainer. The E52 Elliptical was manufactured by Horizon Fitness several years ago and it seems a few brand new overstocks are still around. If you’re considering buying the E52 Elliiptical Trainer, please read my humble review first.

One of the best things about the Horizon E52 Elliptical Trainer is strong, stable frame. Lesser elliptical trainers feel wobbly, especially during more intense (faster) workouts. The E52 is well built and designed and feels extremely stable. Another feature I’m glad to talk about is the resistance levels; elliptical trainers in this price range typically offer users 8-10 resistance levels. The Horizon E52 Elliptical Trainer comes with 20 resistance levels for fine tuning your workout.

Even though the frame is stable, the elliptical motion has a clumsy feel compared to the newer Horizon Elliptical models. It was an excellent design a couple years ago, but Horizon Fitness has manufactured infinitely better equipment since then. I’m also not the slightest impressed with the anemic 4 fitness programs.

Final Analysis
I can’t wholeheartedly endorse the Horizon E52HR Elliptical Trainer when there’s so many other, cheaper Horizon Ellipticals on the market with a better look, feel, and far more features. If you’re thinking about buying the Horizon E52 Elliptical Trainer, I strongly advise you give the Horizon E56 Elliptical Trainer a look. It has 20 fitness programs compared to the E56’s pathetic 4, a larger console display, has smoother, more natural motion, and to top it off, is about a hundred bucks cheaper. Just some food for thought.
