Latest Elliptical Reviews:

  1. Good machine. – Review by No Names

    Overall Rating

    I’ve had this elliptical machine for a couple of weeks now. I use it daily for approximately one hour.

    I like the fact that it doesn’t take up too much of a footprint. I’m not including the dimensions of the unit as you can get that info. from both the seller and/or the manufacturer.

    It is an entry level commercial quality machine, at a reasonable price. It’s a sturdy machine, built well (very solid). It’s fairly quiet to; I think my heavy breathing during a workout is louder than the sound of the moving parts of this machine. It has a reasonably sized cup holder to hold your beverage and an “Over Molded Reading Rack/Tablet Holder”. It’s a perk but when you’re working out, why would you want to be reading? I guess it can be used to hold your tablet so you can play music as you’re working out, but for anybody who uses it to hold reading material....put down your reading material(s) and focus on your workout! Just my two cents.

    It has nine different programs : Manual, Cardio, Arm Sculpture, Leg Shaper, Random, Sports Intervals, Easy Intervals, Rolling Hills & One Big Hill. I’m sure you can figure out what each of these programs offer you based on their descriptions, so I won’t go any further into that.

    The console is nice as well. It’s simple to operate. Not too small, and not so big that the user will be distracted trying to figure out complex features. I didn’t have to read the manual to figure out how it worked. I like that. When I buy equipment like this, I want to be able to use a console that’s very intuitive & easy to figure out.

    The moving footpads have an “Orthopedic Soft Step Cushioned Anti-Fatigue Material”. It’s very soft; I love the comfort it offers. It also has a stationary side step (one on each side), in case you want to rest in the standing position. I personally think this is an unneccessary feature as you can stand still on the moving footpads. The only thing is, if you stand still on the moving footpads, you run the risk of falling if you’re disoriented and can’t maintain a stationary position. I don’t have this problem so it’s not an issue for me.

    The only thing I dislike about this model is the heart rate monitor sensor placement. The sensors are placed on the stationary rails; one on each side. This means, in order to get a reading on your heart rate, you have to place your hands on the stationary side rails instead of working them out, moving them back and forth.

    A better placement option for the heart rate monitor sensors, would have been on the moving “Multi-Grip Handles”. That way you can move your arms back and forth while getting a heart rate reading. I chose an elliptical machine so that I could work out my arms & my legs simultaneously and the current heart rate monitor sensor doesn’t allow that. Another annoyance is that it takes a couple of minutes before the machine will read my heart rate. I think the sensor is a bit too sensitive on the finger(s) placement. So for a couple of minutes, I’m not moving my arms getting the workout I wanted. Again, this is nothing major but the machine has this feature, so why not be able to utilize it effectively? I plan on getting an external heart rate monitor (the kind you strap around your chest) so that I can keep both of my arms moving during my entire workout.

    All in all I’d say this is an excellent machine & I’d strongly recommend it.

  2. Perfect for my needs – Review by Angela M

    Overall Rating

    This elliptical is not the top of the line, but it suited my needs perfectly, and since the price was my main qualifier, this one obviously fit the budget.

    I really only needed a machine that offers me a low impact workout, and something to help me stay active during the months when it's too cold to go out for my post dinner walk.

    The ex 59 is great for my low impact workouts, and feels much sturdier than other brands that I have tried in Sears.

    the controls are quite straightforward, so it's easy for my to step on, and start and monitor my minutes and get off and continue with my evening.

    Perfect, thanks Treadmill Factory.

  3. Great Elliptical! – Review by Elizabeth T.

    Overall Rating

    This elliptical is amazing! It is smooth and SOLID. I used to go to a gym regularly, and I used their Life Fitness ellipticals all the time. They were very good so I thought I wanted to stick with that brand; however, the reviews for the non-commercial ellipticals were not that great. So I did some research, and for the money, the M30 was a best buy in its price range.

    My husband assembled it all by himself, and he said it was VERY simple to set up. The instructions are very clear and concise, and it took him about 90 minutes from start to finish. My husband said it was machined very well. The holes all line up exactly from part to part for fitting screws, etc. I am satisfied with the programs (I prefer manual most of the time).

    I do not use it to lose weight, but to stay healthy and keep my immune system strong. :) I highly recommend!
