EX-79 Key Specs:
The Horizon EX 79 is out of manufacture.
As an alternative, Horizon offers the new Horizon ex59. At the same price point, we suggest you to also consider even better machine by Sole Fitness, the Sole E25.
Horizon EX 79 Elliptical Machine Review
There is a whole new generation of elliptical trainers equipped with so-called MP3 / iPod dock. The system contains audio jacks that allow you to connect your iPod, iPhone or any other mp3 device to the machine's sound system. The Horizon Fitness EX-79 has two built-in speakers integrated to the sound system.
The EX-79 cross trainer is the most powerful and most equipped machines in the Horizon Fitness elliptical series. Unlike other models that have 5 manually adjusted incline levels, the EX79 features the Auto-Incline option. It means you can adjust 20 incline levels with a touch of the button. Pair that with the 20 electronic resistance levels, and you get seemingly unlimited options to vary the intensity of your workout and to target specific muscle groups.
The Horizon EX-79 offers an extra long, 51 cm / 20" stride length. A heavy-duty 17.6-lb (8kg) flywheel, oversized foot pedals and gel-cushioned arch support are features usually find in more expensive models of elliptical machines. As you know, our mission is to discover all the flaws that may be expected in each model, but now we have nothing to complain about. With a price around $1000, the Horizon EX-79 offers more than you pay for. Given that it is an old model, we suggest you to consider the the new Sole E25, model for 2017 / 2018, instead.

Where to Buy Horizon ellipticals at Best Price
The best place to buy Horizon ellipticals is the official website. Certainly, you will get the best buying conditions there. Given that the Horizon Evolve 5 is no longer available for online purchase, we suggest you to consider Sole E25. It is a far better machine, sold at a similar price point.
