Read More About the Horizon SG Evolve
Today I want to talk about a treadmill that I’ve gotten about 20 emails about in the last 2 weeks. That’s a lot for one treadmill in particular and I finally found out why you all are asking about it so much. It’s on TV! So, today I’ve decided to be the TMZ of celebrity fitness equipment and answer go paparazzi on the Horizon Evolve SG Treadmill.
There are a lot of good things about the Horizon SG Folding Compact Treadmill. First, it sort of looks like it belongs on the Enterprise, Captain Kirk’s ship from Star Trek. Aside from that, it does best what this treadmill was designed and named for, saving space when it’s not in use. This treadmill folds down to an impressive 10” x 59”. That’s incredible! If you’re short of space and need something big but can fold down to something small when you’re not using it, you’re going to be very happy with the Horizon Evolve SG Treadmill
On the con side, it’s not the most powerful treadmill out there. The Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill has one of the weaker motors I’ve seen in this price range. The 1.5 HP motor is okay, but you can get something more powerful for exactly the same amount of money in the Horizon T91 Treadmill. I will note, however, that it does not fold down to nearly as small a unit as the Horizon Evolve SG Treadmill, so if you’re trying to choose between the two just examine your needs. Do you need to save space or do you want more power? If you need more space, choose the Horizon Evolve SG Treadill, if you want more power go with the Horizon T91 Treadmill
Another cool feature is the built in speakers. If you have an ipod or another type of MP3 player you can play your music without bothering with headphones. It’s a really convenient feature and frees you from the hassle of an extra set of wires. I will say these aren’t the best speakers so if you’re a music freak you’ll probably end up using your headphones anyway.
Overall, this is a great treadmill if you need something that folds up really small. Otherwise there are several better options out there including the Horizon T91 Treadmill. It costs exactly the same as the Horizon SG Compact Treadmill but it wasn’t built as small, which means Horizon had more room to add things like a more powerful motor. Just think about what you need, I know I’ve given you the information you need to make the best choice for your health.
