The Horizon Fitness T101 Treadmill is an entry level foldable treadmill best suited for walkers, joggers or cardio newbies. It is compact, sturdy and easy to use. The T101 comes with a console fan, Bluetooth speakers, device holder, and a rapid-charge USB port so you can workout with your favorite fitness app, music and entertainment while staying cool. 

The 2.5 continuous horsepower motor will not support fast or longer running but, with inclines up to 10% and speeds ranging from .5-10 miles per hour, you can certainly work up a sweat. The 55-inch-by-20-inch running area has Horizon’s proprietary three-zone cushioning to decrease impact to your joints. And, when not in use, this treadmill folds for easy storage and is a great option for those living in smaller spaces.

Product Summary & Specs

The Horizon Fitness T101 is a great no-frills treadmill equipped with all the basic features needed to do some walking or light jogging. Simply hop on the treadmill, choose from one of the five on board workout programs and get going. Stay connected and entertained by plugging in your device and workout to your favorite music, TV show or workout program. With convenience in mind, the T101 allows you to quickly shift speed and incline automatically with one-touch keys. The Horizon T101 does not have a traditional display. Instead, there are digital number boxes that display your most important workout metrics: time, calories, speed/incline, distance and heart rate. 

While the 2.5 continuous horsepower motor may not be as powerful as some, it sure is quiet. Reviews state that this durable motor is surprisingly quiet. Horizon claims that noise is minimized as the motor runs at a lower RPM which also increases efficiency. As with most folding treadmills, the Horizon T101 running surface runs on the smaller side measuring 55 inches by 20 inches which may be a limiting factor for taller individuals. While the running surface may fall on the small side, it still features a three-zone cushioned deck to protect your joints and spine. The compact nature of the T101 makes it easy to fold using a one-step hydraulic folding system to store your treadmill when not in use.
