Horizon is known for its quality treadmills offered at decent prices, so I decided to try out the T101. I’d heard a lot about it and I’ve put on a few pounds over the last few months, so I figured it’s time to get back on the routine! Here’s my review of the Horizon T101 Treadmill.

The Horizon T101 is known for being flexible without being overly complicated. If you’ve looked at treadmills before, you know that some require a degree in physics or the equivalent just to get going. The T101 has customization settings and a nice, simple display. It’s really easy to use.

Adjustable features include speed and incline. The speed can be run up to 10 mph, which is a rigorous run. If you’re like me, you’re just fine with a 6 mph jog, but if you want to challenge yourself, you can step on the accelerator. The slope is also adjustable up to 10%.

The best and most unique feature is its 9 programming options. These are sort of parameters that you can use to create the workout you want. They give you lots of options but it’s still really simple. Three of these are time, duration and how many calories you want to burn. There are also 3 workouts to choose from depending on your exercise goal – manual mode, weight loss, and interval training.

Why The T101 Rocks

Of course, the flexibility of the workout options is the main selling point for me. It’s easy to create your own workout and you can make it as easy or difficult for yourself as you’d like to. This allows you to inch it up a notch whenever you want to challenge yourself.

This treadmill has easy to use controls and great interface, the display is clear and accurate and displays the stuff you want it too, in general, very impressed

The Horizon T101 is also built tough for its price. You don’t see treadmills with this kind of quality at under $1,000. Most of the cheaper ones feel flimsy, like they’re going to fall apart under you while you’re running on them. The T101 definitely doesn’t.

When I work out, I like listening to music. I’m not so much into watching TV while I’m on the treadmill. The Horizon T101 comes with speakers that are MP3 compatible, and that’s another thing I like about it.

A Couple Of Warnings

I just want to be honest here, so here are a few things to expect. Setting up the Horizon T101 is no walk in the park. You can do it yourself but this thing is heavy, and I’d recommend having somebody help you. Also, read the manual carefully. This isn’t something you just pop out of the box and put together by intuition. The assembly is a little bit tricky.

It even has different work out levels so you wont get too bored,, I have mine in front of a flat screen tv and the time flies by..

You wont regret buying this Treadmill at all!!!

Another thing is that, although it folds up nicely to conserve space, it still takes up a bit of room. Don’t expect it to totally disappear when you fold it up! This isn’t one of those tiny cheapo treadmills that fits under the bed, so make sure you’ve got some space for it.

The Horizon T101 is a solidly built, high quality treadmill at a very low price. It’s easy to use while still offering you lots of flexibility in your workouts. Turn it on, hop aboard and watch TV while you shed the pounds!
