The Horizon 7.4 AT treadmill is a workhorse. It isn’t a Peloton Tread, nor does it claim to have all the bells and whistles that a technology based treadmill might offer. However, with a 3.5 CHP motor, you’ll be able to do pretty much any type of cardio your heart desires. If you’re in the mood for some all out sprints, the 7.4 can accommodate you with maximum speeds up to 12 mph. Want to feel like you’re climbing a mountain? The 7.4 can help you there too with a 15% incline. Plus, if you’re into regular steady state cardio, the 7.4 has a XL running deck of 60 inches, so you can stride without the fear of falling off.
Plus, the warranty on this treadmill is stellar. You get a lifetime warranty on the frame and the motor, plus two years on parts and one year on labor. What more could you ask for?

If you're a serious runner and want a foldable treadmill you can trust, I would strongly recommend the Horizon 7.4. Although it doesn't have all the extra technology features (like interactive programming or a touchscreen) it is a well-build machine with a powerful motor.
