Exercise machines designed for at-home use have obviously been around for some time now. There has been a multitude of different kinds, each with their own specific pros and cons. One of the major issues in the past with the at home models was how stripped back and less professional they were compared to the gym versions they were based on.
It meant that while it was fun and practical to have a treadmill or elliptical trainer you could use without leaving your house, you never really got quite the same experience you would at the gym. At home machines were a bit wobbly, not as technologically advanced and hellish to setup. That was in the past, since then there has been a lot of evolution in the industry and products like the Horizon Fitness 7.0 AE elliptical trainer, that we are going to discuss in this review, have bridged the gap between what it’s like at the gym and what it’s like at home.
When it comes to exercise machines and choosing the right for us, we always look at the features. We want to know what a model is going to offer us that’s different from the other machines available. With the Horizon Fitness 7.0 AE elliptical trainer, there is a lot of great features that make it really shine.
Technology is front and center in the design of the 7 AE Elliptical trainer with its automatic resistance and incline selection to advanced Bluetooth connectivity and so much more. Even the design and layout of the machine is advanced and offers a better experience than many others in the same price bracket. Let’s look at its features in greater detail now.
Advanced Bluetooth For a More Personalized Workout Experience
The Advanced Bluetooth connectivity offered by the 7 AE elliptical trainer helps to give you a more personalized experience. We all have our own preferences with what we like to do while working out, don’t we? While some of us prefer to watch a movie or keep up to date with the latest news, others prefer to listen to their favorite playlists of music. With the Bluetooth connectivity, you get with the 7 AE, it is easy to connect your preferred device up to the onboard speakers.
There is even space on the display mount for your device to sit, so you can use the display screen on them rather than having to crank your neck while working out to look at them. Another nice bonus feature is the rapid-charge USB port which ensures your smartphone or tablet never loses power, especially during those long and grueling workouts.
Digital Resistance and Incline Settings At the Touch of a Button
One way to ensure your workouts are anything but boring is to alter the amount of exertion required to move the pedals and to change a straightforward and very flat elliptical course into various hills and inclines. With the 7 AE you can do this with relative ease thanks to the 20 different digital resistance settings and power incline controls.
Rather than having to get off the machine to change these each time you want to make your workout tougher, you can do so from the display monitor. This means you can keep up the momentum while diversifying your workout appropriately.
Six-Star Frame For Perfect Posture and Optimum Comfort
It can be a concern when you are working out at home that you are completing exercise routines in the most comfortable and physically safe ways. Especially as you don’t have a personal trainer or gym staff on board to give you pointers. With the 7 AE elliptical trainer, Horizon Fitness has used their renowned Certified Six-Star frame as the basis for the machine, which means you will always be stood in the ideal position with great posture during your workouts and be able to work out for longer with greater comfort.
