This model has been discontinued.

Horizon Fitness is a budget-friendly treadmill line produced by Johnson Health Technology, a North American leader in fitness equipment manufacturing. Johnson also produces some higher-end treadmill brands such as LiveStrong and Matrix. Horizon Fitness treadmills offer users a taste of Johnson’s elite products at a fraction of the price.

What We Like

  • Price: Horizon treadmills are priced for shoppers with smaller budgets.
  • Track Cushioning: The COMFORTselect air cell cushioning system lets each user find the right balance between shock absorption and support.
  • Consoles: Horizon consoles are ergonomic and attractive. The T91 includes an orange backlit LCD display and a fan to help users train longer. A heartrate grip is also included.
  • Stability: Customers report that Horizon treadmills are remarkably stable for low-cost workout machines.
  • Warranties: Horizon Fitness offers a generous warranty package for a discount brand. The T91 is sold with a lifetime frame warranty, a twenty-year motor warranty, and a one-year warranty on parts and labor. Customers can also purchase extended warranties for $79 and up.

What We Don’t Like

  • Motor: The T91 is sold with a 2.0 HP motor. Although an extensive warranty is included, the motor might not handle daily use by a serious trainer.
  • Programs: With only 9 built-in workout programs, the Horizon T91 might not offer enough variation to keep all exercisers engaged.
  • Track size: The T91’s 50”x20” treadbelt will feel far too short for many trainees.

Our Verdict

The Horizon T91 might be a good buy for someone with a tight budget. However, the treadmill is not suitable for taller people and has relatively few workout programs. Since there is such a small price difference between Horizon’s entry-level models and Horizon’s top-of-the-line models, prospective buyers might consider buying a model that’s more advanced than the T91. You might not appreciate some of the sacrifices Horizon made to lower the price of this machine.
