The Elite T7 treadmill is one of two in Horizon's higher end series, offering a number of great features that put it on top of many Best Buy lists year after year. With plenty of workouts, a runner's deck and generous incline capability, it's hard to beat in the price category.
The Horizon Elite T7 features a bright 8.5" extra wide LCD display showing time, distance, calories, heart rate, laps and speed. It offers special 3-zone cushioning on a large, foldable runner's deck with incline capability and 42 built in workout programs.
The specs on the Elite T7 model include:
As we mentioned above, reviews of the Elite T7 have always been positive from experts and users alike, because it offers a lot for under $1500 when it's on sale.
It's a step up from the Horizon Elite T5 model, with a stronger motor, larger display, more incline capability and other additional features.
The Elite T7 features the Infinity Belt, which is a maintenance-free built found exclusively on the Elite Series models. They blend in a synthetic hard wax that lasts forever, so there is no need to ever lubricate the belt like you need to do on most other treadmills.
Critics like the fact that although this is a folding treadmill, quality is not sacrificed at all. These machines are well-made, with the unique Johnson Drive System making them very quiet and responsive to your movements.
Users love the 3-Zone Variable Cushioning system that provides the right amount of resistance at each part of the belt. There's a generous 42 workout programs to choose from as well.
Other well-received features are ViaFit technology which tracks all of your workouts and Passport, which syncs to your television and shows high definition footage of two locations, Italy and the Southwest, which matches the pace of your workout. So it's like you are actually running in those locations. (Note that you need a Passport Player, sold separately for about $249)
You can also buy other locations if you get bored with the two. :)
All in all, the Horizon Elite T7 is a winner, giving you everything you need to make your workouts better and reach your fitness goals.
We like the Elite T7 treadmill, as it gives you a lot of good features that keep you motivated to workout. There are a lot of built-in workouts to choose from, as well as up to a 15% incline which is great for improving your cardio.
The Infinity Belt with 3 zone cushioning is as good as it gets, and the motor is strong and quiet, even at high speeds.
We like the fact that you can track your workouts and sync them with various fitness apps, and Passport, despite the fact that you have to pay extra for the module, is a very cool feature. We used a machine that had one of the additional destination packs, virtually running through New Zealand, which was just beautiful. It definitely makes your workouts more enjoyable.
If you want to enjoy these destinations without the TV, the uplevel Elite T9 model has it built right into the treadmill. That one also has a touchscreen and a few additional features.
What's the bottom line? The Horizon Elite T7 is a winner and definitely worth a closer look.
