Pros:For the price a nice, quiet, comfortable machine with decent programs and warranty.

Cons:Limited programs; no fan; can't input weight or age; low user weight.

The Bottom Line: I don't think you can go wrong with this machine unless you are over 275 pounds or run marathons.


I was asked to review two Horizon machines. I imagine the requests were due to the low price of these machines. You will be able to find them for under $600 if you look around. The T95 Treadmill will be my first review.

The basics:

The original price of this machine which was around $1100 is equal to many of the Sole treadmills out there. I consider Horizon a middle of the road line. It isn’t high end like Life Fitness but it isn’t in the ProForm category either.

This machine folds and has transport wheels so it can be moved.

The T95 weighs 234 pounds and measures 68 inches long by 67 inches high by 33 inches wide. Folded it measures 27 inches long by 34 inches wide by 67 inches high. The maximum user weight is only 275 pounds so be aware of that number. The treadmill measures 20 inches wide by 55 inches long.

If you have ever read any of my other treadmill reviews you know I am very fussy about the size of the belt I will down rate a belt if it is less than 17 inches wide by 50 inches. The belt on the Horizon T95 is 20 inches wide by 55 inches long so I was quite happy with it. I liked the neon blue strips that run alongside the belt. When I was power walking it helped me make sure I wasn’t going to hit the sides.

I don’t always note the horsepower of the motor but just in case you are wondering if 1.75 is enough it is. Many machines have as much as 3.5 horsepower. I recommend that a machine have a horsepower of at least 1.5 and most go to 2.5. Anything above that isn’t necessary and you may be paying for something you don’t need in my opinion.

You’ll get a very good warranty on the T95. Horizon gives you a lifetime on the frame; 10 years on the motor and 1 year on the parts and labor.

Many machines now have names for their decks. Horizon calls theirs Tri Zone Plus Cushioning. I did like the feel of the deck. It responded to by footsteps meaning I felt some give rather than feeling as if I were power walking on concrete which is not something I like. The belt was quiet and smooth. The machine performance overall was quite nice.
The machine has two sets of handles. One goes across the console and the others are short handles which house the heart rate sensors.

The console and more of my experiences:

The T95 has two integrated bottle and stuff holders and a magazine rack.

The console is nice and big. It looked a little different than others I’ve seen and it has a feature not usually found for this price.

It has four LED windows that showed me my distance, time, calories, incline, heart rate and speed. The programs are interval, rolling, weight loss, golf course, manual and custom. I didn’t get a lot of choices but again for the money I was very pleased. I found the display buttons very easy to read.

I’m going to go through the custom program I used. This is really a manual program but it allowed me to save my speed, incline and time. This is a nice feature especially if you want to compete against yourself.

I put in how much time I wanted using the arrow keys and hit enter. I then chose my speed and hit enter. This works in segments so I had to press enter after each segment. No big deal – just took a bit longer than I’m used to. I then chose what incline I wanted and had to do the same for each segment. Once I hit start my program was saved. I could change any of my input information but that wouldn’t get saved.

I could choose intervals of up to 10% and speeds of .5 to 10 mph which is enough for anyone unless you run marathons!

The feature I found that is unusual for $600 were quick buttons both for my speed and incline. The buttons were easy to access on the bottom of the console. This let me change my speed and inclined just by pushing a button from 1 to 10.

My final thoughts:

The Horizon T95 is certainly an above average machine. The price is fantastic and you’ll get a great warranty.

What you won’t get are lots of programs, fans, and other technology that you’ll find on more expensive machines. It also has a low user weight.

Although it seems there are a lot of negatives for the right person this is the right machine.

For someone just looking for a great treadmill and if you don’t want to shell out a lot of money take a look at this one.
