There are many exercise machines available today on the market. When it comes to treadmills, the Horizon Fitness Treadmills are very popular. This includes the Horizon T72, Horizon T82 and Horizon T900. So here is the review of all three.
Horizon T72 is priced below $1000 often in 700-800 dollar price range. Horizon T72 is nice-looking machine and made by Johnson. This is one of the popular names in the treadmill business. It has a fair valuefor an economy treadmill. The most comparable brand to this is the ProForm. It comes with the 6 built in programs, and higher incline than others. It also has extended warranty on the parts. The basic specifications of this treadmill are: 2.0HP motor, 0.5-10MPH speed, incline of 0-10%, tread belt 20″ x 55″ and easy stored unit. The Horizon T 72 used AirCell shock absorption to cushion your joints and ligaments while working out. As an additional benefit, there is the built in fan, a nice cool down while working out.
There is not that much difference between the Horizon fitness treadmill T72 and Horizon T82, it just has few more upgrades. With this model, Horizon had upgraded the plastic they use on these machines. Usually, when treadmills are in the lower price range, you need to pay close attention when assembling them. This is due to a very thin plastic that makes up the consoles and shrouds. But as mentioned before, on the Horizon T82 treadmill the plastic is a lot thicker. This feature will make your machine last a lot longer. This unit is very easily put together. The instructions are very easy to follow and within 30 minutes this machine should be ready to go. Some of the specifications of this machines are: 2.25 HP motor, cushion system ComfortZone air cell, folding – hydraulic assisted, 3 orange backlite LCD display, and with built in 14 programs. The Horizon control console emphasizes simplicity, with logical control locations and three orange backlit LCD screens that offers key feedback on your workout. The Horizon T82 is folds nicely and quickly. Horizon’s have the exclusive FeatherLight lift, which incorporates two hydraulic shocks to assist you when raising and lowering the deck. Other details include contact heart rate grips, a built-in cooling fan, an MP3 port with speakers and a headphone jack, and a 20-by-55-inch running area.
And now lest review the Horizon T900 fitness treadmill. The console is made to give you a nice luxury feel. The T900 makes it easier to push to a new fitness goal. An iPod® dock charges as it plays your workout playlist, while the wider speed and incline range let you take your workout to new levels.
