Shipping and Assembly:
Customers report the EX-59-02 arrives well protected in a double-layer shipping box. It is fairly heavy and may need two people to lift it. This typical for elliptical machines, of course, since there are a lot of moving parts and the weight helps stabilize the equipment.
The parts are conveniently shrink-wrapped on individual pages with corresponding step by step instructions.
Assembly is moderately challenging with most people able to complete it in approximately 2 hours. Just grab a friend, spouse, or kid and have them help you out. It’ll make the job much more enjoyable.

What Isn’t So Great
The main sticking point of the Horizon Fitness EX-59-02 Elliptical Trainer is that it is fairly heavy and can be harder to assemble than other ellipticals and in some cases requires more than one person. Which can prove difficult for some people.
