Horizon Evolve SGHorizon Evolve SG

Web Price: $799.99 | Sale Price: $599.99

The low horsepower motor, light weight capacity and skinny treadbelt ensure this treadmill was built for walking only. Although one perk is the fact it only measures 10″ tall when folded up makes for one of the most compact treadmills out there.

Expert Reviews

“The motor is a wimpy very light 1.5 CHP engine, the tread belt is a skinny 17″ x 45″, and the weight limit is 250 lbs (maximum). If you have children this would be great for them, but the whole machine overall is just too small for most normal sized adults” – TreadmillReviews.com

“Evolve SG helps you do the minimum required for a healthy life. It’s a basic machine for those who prefer inside workout, hate walks on a cold/rainy weather or just don’t want to take it to the next level.” -Run Reviews

“The Horizon Evolve SG is substandard. It has an especially weak motor and a plain console. This model is only recommended to people who truly need a portable treadmill.”TreadmillReviews.net

“An impressive machine that is so small when folded (10” of vertical height) that you can literally put it under a bed. If you are someone who wants serious training, look elsewhere but for $600 and if you need an ultra-compact machine, this one makes inordinate sense.”-Treadmill Doctor

User Reviews

Horizon Fitness allow the users of their products to leave reviews online, which you can find here. This is what some of them are saying of the Evolve SG:

“The treadmill looks nice and i love the size and the fact i can move it out of the way. i have been gone but am looking forward to using it. I think it was a good value for the money too. Storing it was the reason I bought it.”

“Only con for me, so far, is that you are limited to jogging at a max of 6 mph. If you are tall, this treadmill is not for you given the narrow and short space to jog or walk. Overall, I think this a great treadmill, especially for the price!”

“I use this treadmill for walking not jogging. I set the speed at 4 mph for 1 hour, three times a week. This machine is very easy to use.”

” The treadmill looks nice and I love the size and the fact I can move it out of the way. I think it was a good value for the money too. Storing it was the reason I bought it.”


The Horizon Evolve SG is the perfect treadmill for someone in a dorm room or small apartment looking for a daily 30 minute indoor walk. It’s easy storage capacity is what draws many buyers to this product, yet if you are looking for a treadmill with any power, this treadmill is not for you. It’s low motor horsepower and small treadbelt can make for an uneasy, uncomfortable slow speed workout.
