Quality suspension and deck systems to help protect your body; best-in-class motors that keep going strong for years to come; and meaningful, motivating programming to help you meet your goals. At Horizon, we carefully design each treadmill to give you the comfort, control and convenience you need to succeed. Horizon treadmills use large, heavy frames, making them more solid and stable than competitors'. The Horizon T101 offers a comfortable beginning - durability and value rolled into an attractive design.

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.

Anyway, I have read a lot in the past few days about you can't get a quality treadmill for under X amount of money or by buying anything from X brand. Thing is, I definitely don't have $1500-$2000 to spend on a treadmill. I wasn't even comfortable with the idea of spending $1000. I wanted something between $400-$700 MAX. And I didn't want it to shake, I wanted it to have incline, and tell me how far I'd "traveled" and how many calories I'd burnt, and I wanted to be able to jog on it (5-6 MPH for me.) I thought these were fairly simple demands considering treadmills aren't exactly new technology. I don't even need it to support a large amount of weight. Just me, at 150 lbs and hopefully soon weighing less.
So I finally decided I would try the one I liked the most instead of trying to find the one the treadmill reviewers liked the most. I did ultimately decide against Icon made products because I did not like the consoles as much and I feared the fancier electronic stuff meant less quality in the places where it matters most. I also read way too much about subpar quality in the past (although it has perhaps increased recently, shown by their imrpoved warranties) that I could not possibly buy one without fearing it's impending doom. This brought me back to Horizon treadmills, which I liked the look of the most from the beginning. As a bonus and possible deciding factor, the nice people at Play it again Sports where the T101 is carried in my area assured me they are licensed to fix Horizon products. So if it breaks, I don't even have to call Horizon. I just go see them and they come fix it.
I bit the bullet and let them swipe my card. Opted out of having them deliver and assemble it. It would have been nice, but I didn't want to spend any more money if I didn't have to. It is quite heavy and it was difficult to get it out of the car and inside. Putting it together was much easier, although my boyfriend got aggravated a couple times because you have to hold parts just right for all the holes to line up (which all of ours did). Really though all you do is attach the supporting bars and then fit the console in between the support beams on top. After assembly, I hopped on to begin burning calories asap. I jogged some at 5.8 mph and 2% incline, I jogged much slower at a 5% incline, I walked quickly all the way up at a 10% incline, and I sped walk a lot around 4 mph at 3% incline. I was at it for around 45 minutes and it felt very stable and good under my feet. I realize this is not at all showing if it's durable yet or not, but my first impressions are that I am quite pleased and excited to get fit for bikini season. I am glad that I did not spend less and that I did not spend more. I like the console and the overall appearance of this treadmill as well. It does not look or feel cheap or flimsy.
The only problem I'm having right now is it is quite large and doesn't fold up completely vertically. I already knew this but it's still a little bit of a problem for me. It's more or less in the middle of my living room right now as there's not really anywhere else to put it without completely rearranging. My recent weight gain over a tough fall semester followed by the holidays however is more of an issue to me so I am willing to deal with an intruding treadmill. Also one may wish to beware that after assembled it probably cannot move through doorways. It is 33" in width and 40" deep while folded. Finally, the 2 wheels are useless. I have yet to figure out how to tilt it back (towards me, when I'm holding onto the handles of the treadmill while folded) and get it onto the wheels. Thus, it is quite difficult to move around. Luckily my floor is tiled; I don't think I COULD move it on carpet, especially not thick carpet.
In essence, I would highly recommend this treadmill if you are looking for qualities similar to what I was looking for. A fairly basic, safe-feeling, folding treadmill with automatic incline that can easily support an average weight for walking and jogging. It has a lifetime frame and motor warranty which makes me feel like it will be durable over the long haul. Definitely GO to the stores and test them out and see what you feel comfortable on & won't mind looking at in your home. I would also try to find out if there are people who can service a Horizon treadmill near you, if that will ease your mind as it did mine. I am happy with my purchase, which was a large purchase for me, and I will update this review should anything go wrong. Happy treading!
Also, the instructions state that the belt comes factory set for the tension and centered, but then they require you to loosen the belt to grease it. Was very difficult to get the belt back to the way it is suppose to be, and I'm still not sure it's right.
First - delivery and setup... This bugger is HEAVY although it's less than some of the competing models. The box says a little over 200 lbs but it's awkward to manhandle. The delivery people dropped it in the foyer and said bye-bye. Hint number one: if you get a chance for inside delivery where you're going to set it up - TAKE IT! It's worth a couple of extra bucks. Slip the delivery people $20 to take it up the stairs. The box was in great shape - not dinged, broken or anything. All straps were in place. I opened it up and the instructions (which were inside the box) said don't take anything out until you've got the box where you're going to set it up. Hmmmm - that didn't work and, once the box is opened, it's almost impossible to move because it tries to come apart. OK - so I carried the supports and console upstairs and then got a neighbor to help me horse the rest of it upstairs. No problems but it takes a bit of labor. Once there, it was simple to assemble. The directions are good, the parts clearly marked and the tools necessary for the job are all included. That's a real plus. Took less than 20 minutes to assemble it. It's best if you've got two people on the assembly. It's a little awkward holding things in place and then lining up the bolts.
Next - using it. It's great. Quiet, easy to operate. The speakers are nice and you can get it more than loud enough to hear and sing along (if you must). The controls are intuitive and laid out logically. The two pockets on the console hold your iPod, MP3 player, water, phone, whatever.
