Horizon T101 Treadmill Reviews & Ratings
Web Price: $829.99 | Sale Price: $629.99
Although it is a smaller motor, for the price it is a great buy for those light joggers looking for a inexpensive treadmill. It’s a great entry level treadmill for its price.
“The Horizon T101 is an entry machine. It’s made for budget families that want a treadmill for light jogging and gentle walking. It is not meant for high pressure running and abuse. For an entry level Horizon this is one of the most impressed we’ve seen.”-TreadmillReviews.com
“For this type of exercises the machine performs decent (almost very good). The highest advantages are the silent motor, reliable and adjustable cushion system, good speakers and the folding control.”-Run Reviews
“With a low price the Horizon T101 should still be taken seriously. The machine gives users the ability to personalize any type of workout.” -TreadmillReview.com
“The T101 is ideal for someone who’s beginning a fitness regime or wants to focus on light to moderate workouts. The nine programs provide exposure to different types of treadmill workouts, and many exercisers find themselves more motivated to work out when they can easily listen to podcasts or MP3s.”-TreadmillReview.net
Horizon Fitness allows their users to review their products online, the T101 had quite a few user reviews which you can see here. This is what a few of them had to say:
“Easy setup, easy to use controls. Researched several different treadmills and found this to be the best value for my money.”
“I wasn’t looking for a huge machine with way too many bells and whistles. I’ll take fewer toys for a solid unit with a good motor. I bought the T101 based on reviews I read, and haven’t been disappointed.”
“I am 6’1″ tall and the hand rails and heart rate sensors are way below my normal reach so I have to bend over to grab the heart rate sensors. This gets worse as I raise the incline level to 8.0 since my hands get farther away the higher I go up.”
“The T101 is quiet and sturdy and the set up process was not difficult. The output from the fan could be stronger, but other than that, I’d recommend this product to others.”
The Horizon T101 is a great treadmill for it’s price. Although the motor is on the smaller side at 2.25 HP, it can get the job done if you are simply looking for a moderate workout of walking or jogging. It comes equipped with 9 built-in exercise programs, a fitness fan, and a full speaker system with an MP3 port; more than you’d expect in a $600 treadmill. The treadbelt is a little smaller at 55′, but unless you are over 6 foot or an avid runner, the Horizon T101 would be the perfect budget treadmill for you.
