The Buzz

The Horizon T100 treadmill has a 1.75 hp continuous duty drive motor, a belt speed up to 10 mph, an incline up to 10% in .5% increments, a 1.4mm belt thickness, and a small 18" x 52" walking area. Other features include a built-in fitness fan, a folding frame for easy storage, and contact grips on the handlebars for heart rate monitoring.

User reviews say that this is a good machine with no frills and they would recommend it to others. It gets above average marks for design and overall value, although it has garnered some critical remarks for the poor 90-day warranty and the cheaper parts used in construction.

What We Say About the T100 Model

The Horizon T100 treadmill is a discontinued model that is still available, but what you really want is the newer, popular Horizon T101 model. It is the same price, just $599, but the T101 has upgraded nearly everything on the treadmill: it has a larger 20" x 55" walking area, a 300-lb user capacity, built-in speakers and MP3 input jack, a hydraulic Featherlight™ lift system, better warranty, and a more durable 2.25 CHP motor.

If you are considering going with a T100, don’t! Horizon has improved this budget treadmill considerably in the 2012 model T101, which has landed on most Best Buy lists.
