Product Summary

**On October 27, 2023, the T101-05 models of the Horizon T101 treadmill with serial numbers starting with TM734 and TM486 were recalled due to reports of the machine unexpectedly changing speed or stopping all together. If you have one of the affected models, contact Horizon Fitness at 888-223-1045 or email retailrecall@johnsonfit.com to get the flash drive you need for the update repair.** 

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.
