The EX-59 offers very basic entertainment features such as MP3 compatibility and 10 workout programs, but not much else. The console comes with a 4.5” yellow-green LCD display screen with contact grips to monitor your heart rate; there is no wireless heart rate monitoring option with this model. There are 10 built-in workout programs to choose from, as well as built-in speakers, tablet rack, and water bottle holder.
With 10 resistance levels, a self-propelled no-hum motor, and a 14.3 lb. flywheel, you can get a good workout in that is easy on the joints and quiet to use in a home or apartment, but one disadvantage is the compact design and super light flywheel. This trainer is much smaller than a commercial-grade trainer you would find at a gym, making it harder for heavier people to safely and easily use the machine. However, the trainer does have a 275 pound weight capacity and a durable tubular steel frame construction, making the trainer overall a pretty sturdy piece of equipment.
