Hello Everyone!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Super Bowl Sunday. If you’re like me, you probably have a few hundred extra calories to burn off. No, I didn’t have buffalo wings, but I did discover Round Table Pizza! Get the classic crust with extra sauce and lots of pepperoni and sausage, you can’t go wrong! If you’re looking for a way to get rid of all those extra pounds I have a Horizon Treadmill Review for you today. Read it and decide for yourself if its just what you need to work off those wings and that 5 extra feet of party sub dripping with mayonnaise. On to the Horizon T6 Treadmill Review!

The Horizon T6 Treadmill is one of Horizon’s Best Treadmills. It’s also the most expensive. The Horizon T6 sets itself apart from the rest of Horizon’s Treadmill lineup with a non-folding design. Many people believe that a folding frame destabilizes the treadmill; they’re right, but the difference is negligible if you’re under 150 lbs. or just plan on doing some light walking. If you’re a serious runner there’s a noticeable difference in stability. The solid frame and the Tri-Zone cushioning system combine to make one of the most comfortable treadmill experiences available for less than $2000.

Most treadmills range from 2 – 2.5 horsepower and are designed for users who sporadically use their treadmill or for users who weigh less than a couple hundred pounds. The Horizon T6 is equipped with a 3 HP motor and is better equipped to stand up to the stress of larger users for longer periods of time. Horizon has a great deal of confidence in the frame construction and design of this treadmill with a 400 lb. user weight capacity!

If you’re looking to improve cardiovascular health, you’ll find the fitness programs specifically designed to get your heart and lungs moving extremely useful. The Horizon T6 Treadmill also includes a wireless Polar telemetric chest strap that can track a users heart rate. Horizon has gone one step further by enabling users to adjust the intensity of their workout according to their heart rate to achieve fitness goals quickly. If you’re slowing down, the system will speed you up, if you’re going too fast you’ll be cooled down.

This wouldn’t be a proper Horizon Treadmill Review if I failed to talk about my one gripe with the Horizon T6 Treadmill. It’s a little too expensive. I would like to see the Horizon T6 Treadmill retail for around $1500, unfortunately Horizon Fitness thinks otherwise. I will say this; it’s probably the closest treadmill to gym quality without spending more than 2k. Still, price does drag on my rating and I award it 4 stars out of 5.

I just got one from Scheels at the same price! I am so happy that I shopped around because Scheels provided free delivery and set-up with my purchase!

I found one at a fitness store that had some consignment treadmills. This T6 has maybe a couple hours of use and I got it for $999 as well. It seems pretty solid.
