Buy The Horizon Fitness T74 Treadmill

I won’t throw this around lightly and this is the first time I’ve said this; I have found the best treadmill deal online. Remember when I told my readers that they could find a good deal on last year’s treadmill models if they shopped around? I knew you would! Well, here’s proof I wasn’t just yankin’ your chain to sell treadmills. Right now Amazon is offering the Horizon T74 Treadmill for just $899. That’s a hundred bucks cheaper than the Horizon T83 Treadmill! Let’s explore the features of the Horizon T74 Treadmill and then we’ll compare the Horizon T84 and the Horizon T74 to see how they stack up against each other.

One of the hallmarks of folding Horizon Fitness Treadmills is the featherlight lift system. Horizon Fitness has built their folding treadmills with a hydraulic system that makes folding and unfolding Horizon Treadmills as effortless as possible. Horizon Fitness has integrated a cooling fan in the console of the Horizon T74 to help runners and joggers stay cool during workouts. There’s also built in workout programs that help users target specific fitness goals such as cardiovascular endurance and fat burn.

Here’s how the Horizon T74 Treadmill stacks up against the Horizon T84 Treadmill. Both treadmills have the same maximum speed, incline, running area, weight capacity and warranty. The Horizon T74 and the Horizon T84 differ in programs, horsepower, and price. The Horizon T84 has a tremendous advantage in program variety with more than double the amount of programs available to the user. The difference in horsepower can be considered neglible because both of these treadmills support up to 350 lbs. of user weight and shouldn’t affect the performance or longevity of the treadmill to much.

The huge difference between the T74 and the T84 is price. The Horizon T74 is 25% cheaper or $400 less! That’s huge! The only real difference between these two treadmills is the built in speakers and ipod jack. I understand that might be a big deal for a lot of our readers but if you don’t even own an ipod and have no idea what an MP3 is the Horizon T74 Treadmill is one of the best Treadmill bargains out. In the end, the choice is yours and I hope you find a treadmill that will help you reach your fitness goals!
