Get a great workout in your home with the quiet and smooth Horizon T71 treadmill, which can reach speeds up to 10 miles per hour. Perfect for rigorous training routines, the T71 has a 1.75 horsepower incline motor with a 0 to 10-percent grade. The SmartBoard computer console is easy to read and make adjustments with a spacious blue backlit LCD screen and one-touch modification keys for speed and incline. It includes four preset programs--manual, interval, weight loss, and golf. It also offers a built-in fan to keep you cool and running longer and contact heart rate monitors built into the handles.
The T71 easily storable, thanks to Horizon's exclusive Featherlight lift, which incorporates two hydraulic shocks to assist you when raising and lowering the deck. They even hold the deck in place above 45 degrees, eliminating drops. The ultra-compact, fold-on-nose design is the safest, easiest in its class.
The multi-ply AirCell belt provides excellent cushioning and durability, and it's divided into three distinct zones:
- Impact zone, with thicker, softer cushioning to take stress off your legs and joints
- Transition zone, with moderate cushioning for comfort as you move through the stride
- Push-off zone, with thinner, denser cushioning for a more solid surface to launch into your next stride
The Horizon Quietdrive system use an integrated digital drive for fast, accurate control. Its continuous duty motor--the same type found in health club units--also incorporates large magnets to keep the RPM low, which translates to a quieter motor that will run longer and generate more power than other treadmill motors.

Walking is still considered one of the most beneficial cardiovascular exercises for people of all ages, body types, and fitness levels. As a fundamental form of aerobic training, walking has numerous physical benefits for the heart, lungs, and circulatory system, while also increasing muscle tone and burning fat calories. Treadmills provide a convenient way to regularly exercise in all weather conditions in the comfort and safety of your own home.
From beginners just starting an exercise regimen to advanced athletes looking to maintain their fitness level, anyone interested in getting and staying in shape can benefit greatly from regular use of a treadmill. Treadmills allow you to determine the pace, distance, and complexity of the workout based on your needs, all while watching television, talking on the telephone, or reading a magazine. Much easier on sensitive joints like the knees and hips, treadmill walking and running surfaces are typically long, padded platforms that allow ample room for a long stride and comfortable, low-impact walk or jog without the harsh contact of a concrete surface.
While many different types, styles, and price ranges of treadmills exist, many of them offer unique features like a fold-up design for easy storage, an electronic display monitor showing speed, distance, workout time, incline level, and burned calories, and EKG grip pulses to monitor the heart rate while exercising. Regardless of the simple to complex features you may choose, treadmills offer an array of aerobic exercise opportunities that will provide long-lasting beneficial cardiovascular results without a commute to the gym or a jog in the rain.
