Bladez E500 Elliptical Review
Horizon EX-59 Elliptical
On this particular model, users can choose from 16 electronic levels of resistance, which can be adjusted via the console using the + and – keys; there is no quick start key option on this trainer. On the LED/LCD multi-window readout, users can track their workouts with 9 electronic readouts. There are also 15 built-in workout programs and 4 user settings so users can save up to 4 workouts. To track heart rate, there are dual-grip sensors on the stationary handlebars. This model does not allow for wireless heart rate monitoring. This console also lacks a reading rack, built-in cooling fan, and any audio capabilities.
Bladez Fitness offers a lifetime warranty on the frame and magnet, and 1 year on parts and labor.

The Bottom Line
In comparison to all of the other models in this series, the E500 is going to be the average, with an average stride length of 18 inches and an affordable price of just under $600. The console is quite bare and there are no adjustable options at all, but the levels of resistance and variety of workout programs aren’t bad. Bottom line: this model is a pretty decent piece of equipment if you aren’t looking for anything too advanced or innovative.
