Horizon T101 Review
Quality Treadmill at a Reasonable Price

The Horizon T101 is the most affordable treadmill from Horizon Fitness. This treadmill is reasonably priced but you still get a good quality treadmill from a well established and reputable company. Horizon T101 Exonomy Treadmill

I have had the opportunity to visit the Johnson Fitness headquarters (Johnson Fitness is the parent company for Horizon) a few times now and I had a chance to try out many of their products. The Horizon Fitness products are much better quality than most other brands and their economy models (including the T101) as as good as many of the much more expensive equipment from other companies.

The Horizon T101 Treadmill meets or exceeds our checklist requirements for walkers and runners with the exception of tall runners with a long stride.

You get the most important treadmill features ~ described below ~ but You don't get as many of the "extra features" (mostly the entertainment and motivational features) that you get with more expensive models.

What you do get ~ for "extra features" ~ includes a Music Port and Sound System so you don't need those wires and headphones, plenty of console programs, a fan and a tablet rack.


Note: The Horizon T101 Treadmill is currently selling for $649 directly from Horizon with Free Shipping. See Horizon T101 Treadmill for more information and videos or to get his treadmill online at the lowest price.

Treadmill eReview

Overall the T101 meets or exceeds our requirements for walkers and runners with the exception of very tall or heavy runners. This is an excellent treadmill for walkers, limited jogging or interval training for users of average height and weight.

The T101 has a nicer and more finished look than many treadmills in its price range. For example the sides of the treadmill belt are covered by the plastic molding on each side  and the slightly darker color scheme looks much nicer than other brands.

Horizon rates the user weight capacity of this treadmill at 300 lbs which is a good indication of its durability however the assembled weight of this treadmill is only 165lbs so you may want to consider a higher end treadmill if anyone that will be using the treadmill is heavier or near the stated weight capacity of this treadmill.

Customer Reviews

Our treadmill reviews include hours of research including research of the existing customer reviews available on manufacturer, reseller and review websites. In addition to our consolidated customer review rating (below), we also look for common pros and cons.

The reviews for this treadmill were overwhelmingly positive (most were 5 of 5 stars). There were a few complaints having to do with various shipping damages but most of these were resolved to the customers satisfaction.

One other complaint that we found from a few customers was that when you power the treadmill on it beeps very loudly (full volume). You can turn the volume down after it is on but the next time that you use it it resets to full volume again.

This is not a show stopper of course but something to be aware of.

Our composite score of the customer review ratings online is 4 of 5 stars 4.04 of 5 stars from 358 customer reviews on 2 websites.
