Horizon Treadmills Models
Horizon has an amount of different models of their treadmills which includes: the Quantum, and Omega the Paragon treadmills. Horizon also make other sporting cardio exercise equipment such as: elliptical trainers, rowing machines and stationary bikes.
The treadmills by Horizon are for the most part built fairly solid, but not nearly as solid as the more expensive brands of treadmills. If you plan on using a treadmill to do a lot of running or jogging on a consistent basis over a long period of time this is something to consider.
As with most treadmills, the Horizon models do provide a secure-footed and good-endowed running surface. These treadmills are made with a purpose for home use and unlike a lot of other treadmill brands, a treadmill by horizon is usually a lot better in economic terms.
Some horizon treadmill models have been made to replace other outdated treadmills. For example the horizon treadmill T52 was designed and manufactured to replace the horizon treadmill T20.
This treadmill is also known by a lot of people as the Horizon T805. If you’re confused you’re not alone. Some exercise equipment companies don’t just stick with the same name for a product and just upgrade it with better features and benefits.
A lot of people who are familiar with only one model may recommend it to a friend, but that friend will not be able to find it because it’s been replaced by a different model (which is actually the same model with a couple upgrades).
Even though the treadmills made by horizon are built fairly good (considering their lower than average price range) they aren’t as strong as commercial treadmills. Even though Horizon would like you to think otherwise.
Because of this, the treadmills by horizon are better suited for the casual jogger, runner, etc. and the individual who just wants to get a cardio workout at home.
However, that being said, most of horizon treadmills’ models are extremely popular with the home fitness consumer. So if you fall into one of the “less intense” fitness categories mentioned above, this type of treadmill may be worth looking into.

This is a review from Jack, who bought Horizon treadmill in 2008:
“I rate the Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill with five stars. This treadmill is one of the best purchases I’ve recently made and the only exercise machine that I really look forward to using. The treadmill easily fits in our bedroom. I’ve progressed from walking 3.2 mph to 4.4 mph and now I’m feeling the overall aerobic benefits more each day.”
