Product Summary

One of the most respectable treadmills in Horizon’s lineup is the Horizon 7.8 AT, the highest-grade model in the Studio Series. This treadmill features impressive specs, including a 22-inch-by-60-inch cushioned running deck, a powerful 4.0 CHP motor, a colorful 9.3-inch monitor, integrated speakers for an immersive experience, a rapid-charge USB port, and an included Bluetooth 4.0 heart rate strap. 

With the 7.8 AT, users can stream fitness classes from popular fitness platforms like Studio, Zwift, and Peloton all without a required subscription. That said, connection to third-party apps does require a personal smart device to access touch screen content, videos, or online classes. 

If you’re someone who enjoys interval training, the 7.8 AT will likely be a great fit. Equipped with exclusive QuickDial controls and an integrated Sprint 8 HIIT program, runners can quickly and conveniently control speed and incline with the roller style control. Unlike grip-mounted buttons, the rollers allow users to tweak the speed or incline with minimal interruption to their run. 

Horizon provides an impressive lifetime warranty on both the frame and motor, which is testament to its quality design and components. As with all models in this Studio Series, the 7.8 AT features a folding design and transport wheels. However, with a weight of 330 pounds, it’s not easily moved around. Additionally, when folded, it still has a large footprint so it’s not very space-saving.
