The Horizon Fitness t101-04 is a fantastic platform from which to begin your healthy lifestyle journey. Even if you are upgrading from a older model, the t101-04 will offer some great functions that even the most experienced runners will benefit from.
Feedback so far has been mostly positive around the web, with users commenting on it is reasonably simple to assemble, the amount of running space and the overall sturdiness of the running platform.
Without a doubt this treadmill offers some top quality features that will enhance users exercise regime and allow them to mix it up to keep the body guessing. Listed below are just a few of the key specifications and features that it has to offer.
- It offers a very space saving design thanks to it’s ability to fold. If you have ever owned a larger treadmill in the past you will understand how much of a difference this can make to one room. If you are one of those people who have a home gym you will understand the importance of space. When this treadmill is folded, it makes room for other important workout equipment.
- It includes a fairly powerfull motor (2.25 Horse power). For most users this will be plenty. However if you are looking for something with a little more power, you could also take a look at our Proform Power 995c review
- The motor above allows user speeds of up to 10 mph which is great for beginner and intermediate runners. For users looking for something to conduct high intensity interval training on their will be better options available to you. But for general running and jogging this will be effective.
- As always we need to look at the amount of running space. Belt size should be one of the top priorities when looking for a new treadmill, too little and you don’t have enough room to operate effectively, so it is important to make sure the belt has fairly large dimensions. The Horizon fitness t101-04 belt offer a 20 inches by 55 inches belt which should be enough for your average runner.
- Another really great feature that this treadmill offers is exercise programs. They come built into the machine and there are 30 in total offering a wide variety of exercise targets and difficulties. They have been broken up into long distance based programs, 3 interval training programs, some calories programs and a manual one.
- A fairly sturdy and durable design, perhaps highlighted by the larger than market average user weight capacity of 300 lbs.
- It runs smoothly and surprisingly quiet. This is always a plus as the need to concentrate for some while working out is extremely important. Any rattling/squeaking sounds can be very off putting for even the most experienced jogger.
- The t101-04′s dimensions are as follows: 70 inches by 33.5 inches by 55 inches and it weighs 165 pounds.
Overall, the Horizon fitness t101-04 packs a good amount of power for both beginner and intermediate runners. Quicker paced runners may want something with a more powerful motor, but for most runners this model will provide a great workout that will really help boost your stamina, shed calories and improve your general well being.
