The AFG 2.0 AT folding treadmill is a mid-priced unit from Johnson Fitness, the same company that makes Horizon, Livestrong, and Vision treadmills. This is a good treadmill but it tends to be overlooked in the pack.
The console has an LED brickyard display with two 4-digit LEDs that show readouts for time, distance, calories, speed, incline, and heart rate. The pre-set programs of the AFG 2.0 AT folding treadmill include Manual, Speed Intervals, Incline Intervals, Weight Loss, Pacer, HRC, and Custom 1 & 2.

Not a lot of reviews on this folding treadmill but we can tell you that it does not come with the type of entertainment system that has become standard in most units at this price.
The AFG 2.0 AT has an iPod holder so you can put your device down securely, and plug in a set of headphones into the console, but there are no integrated speakers. Also, it lacks an in-console fan and wireless HR monitoring, as well as HR control programs.
The AFG 2.0 AT folding treadmill is a quality unit sale priced at $1,399 that matches dozens of competitor model specs of a 2.5 chp motor and 20" x 55" tread belt for the same price.
It offers everything you need in terms of mechanical design, especially in the areas of power, cushioning, programs, value, and warranty. However, a Livestrong, Smooth, Sole or Yowza will give you at least that much and more.
