When you do not have time to run to the gym or are too swamped with life to make the trip, you use home equipment. It just makes sense. For us the first thing that comes to mind when we think ‘home gym’ is a treadmill. A lot of modern cardio equipment claims to be more efficient than the treadmill, you might even think so too. The Horizon T101 Treadmill proves to all of us that sometimes, an old fashioned impactful pace, cannot be replaced.


You have probably noticed the large price tag that comes with most decent home equipment. You probably are thinking, “I would rather spend the $20/month, then drop $1,000 on a machine”. We do not blame you! The best argument that we could make is that often we do not have time for the gym. How many times have you watched a gym membership fees draw from your account and realize you only went twice this month? For you, we have researched the Horizon T101 Treadmill, the best selling fitness treadmill on the market.

Horizon T101 Treadmill Review

Features & Functions

Treadmills are not going anywhere soon and the T101 proves that with over 500,000 machines sold. You might ask, “What makes this treadmill better?” It is about the same price as others and does not come with ridiculously high-tech features. Horizon beats other manufacturers to the punch when it comes to customer service. They do their best to let the machine last your lifetime. The T101 has an unrivaled reputation for being very low maintenance and user friendly.

For you this means that 5 years from now, when you are still pounding away on the rotating belt, you will not have invested more money in the machine. Do you not hate it when products cost more money to fix than they’re worth? We do. Here is some of the scientifically crafted information that works together to bring you a great workout.

  • Frame – FeatherLight folding frame perfect for mobility and storage
  • Display – 4.5” LCD Screen
  • Readouts – Time, Distance, Incline, Speed, Calories, Heart Rate
  • Heart Rate Monitor – Contact grips
  • Running Area – 20” x 55”
  • Maximum Weight – 300 pounds
  • Machine Weight – 165 pounds
  • Machine Dimensions – 70” x 34” x 55”
  • Warranty – Lifetime frame and motor, 2 years for parts, 1 year for labor

If seeing the lifetime warranty was not enough, think about the space and mobility this machine offers. If you don’t have a dedicated room for your treadmill, this foldable piece will fit in most closets even. It is simple, elegant, effective, and built for you. It is no wonder half a million have been sold. You will never have to buy a cardio machine again.

Is It For You?

If you are looking for a simple machine that is cost effective, put this on your list. Its programming options make it perfect for almost any fitness level. The days when you could just run and put your treadmill away are not gone. In fact, the T101 wants to exercise with you for a lifetime. That sounds pretty good to us!


These days it is tough to find a lifetime warranty or guarantee of any kind. When you do it comes with an absurd price tag. You have probably been looking for treadmills all around and we are glad you found this one. At the lower end of the price range for treadmills, it is the only machine that is going to bring this kind of quality, service, and user experience for years to come. Have fun on it, and make sure to let us and Horizon know what you think. We both want to see you happy with your purchase.
