Horizon 7.4 AT Treadmill | Designed for Interactive Training

The Horizon 7.4 AT Treadmill doesn’t have the same slick touchscreen consoles found on treadmills from NordicTrack and others. However, it still delivers immense value for an affordable entry price from a function, features, and build quality standpoint. All in all, this is a capable runner’s treadmill.

The Horizon 7.4 AT treadmill features an extra-long and wide 22″ x 60″ running deck. This makes it a good option for taller users and suitable for high-speed sprints. The 7.4 AT’s 3-Zone variable response cushioning does help to reduce the impact on joints.

The 7.4 AT treadmill is a connected fitness machine. It was designed with interactive training in mind and responded to HIIT and interval training’s ever-growing popularity. The 3.5 CHP motor supports a maximum of 12 mph speed and an incline of up to 15%. It’s ideal for streamed virtual workouts and interval training to support rapid changes in incline and speed.

The Horizon 7.4 AT treadmill has ten onboard workout programs. These include 5K, calorie, custom, custom HR, distance, fat burn, heart rate, hill climb, manual, and Sprint 8. The 7.4 AT is also Bluetooth-enabled for interactive training. It can connect to multiple devices, allowing you to stream fitness classes through the Bluetooth speakers and track your heart rate.

Horizon T202 Folding Treadmill | Bluetooth Compatible

One of the surprising things about the Horizon T202 Folding Treadmill is the weight limit. An individual who weighs up to 325 pounds can safely use this treadmill. With this weight limit, the T202 outstrips many far more expensive treadmills.

The T202 features a 2.75 CHP Johnson motor that is continuous horsepower, which shows its staying power while under a load. You can depend on the T202 motor to be able to push you through your workouts without worrying that you will burn it up, though sticking to walking and jogging is a good rule with motors under 3.0 CHP.

The Horizon T202 comes equipped with a 20 x 60” deck that provides all the space and comfort you need to run at your pace. All Horizon treadmill decks are built with 3-Zone Variable Response Cushioning to give you the ideal amount of flex and support in all phases of your stride.

The T202 comes with an LCD screen embedded in the console of the treadmill.  You can track your distance, time, speed, calorie burn, heart rate, and incline. There are excellent connectivity features that come with this treadmill. You can connect your Bluetooth-enabled device with the T202 to stream your audio entertainment directly to the treadmill speakers.

Sunny ASUNA 7700 Treadmill | Heavy-Duty Manual Treadmill

The Sunny ASUNA 7700 Treadmill from Sunny Health & Fitness is the best manual Treadmill for running and other more intense workouts. HIIT and Tabata enthusiasts love it. At 167 lbs., with transport wheels and a soft-drop system, this unit is portable and compact—with a fold-up length of 27.5 inches. Surprisingly, it has a very high user weight capacity of 440 lbs.

The ASUNA 7700 has two heavy-duty magnetic flywheels at the front that give a smooth ride with eight different resistance levels—you can control the resistance by a little gear shift that is easy to reach the user’s right side. Also, the incline is adjustable in 1-degree gradients from 10 to 14 degrees.

Even as it has no console, it does have a rubber gripping surface to hold an iPad/tablet—many users might prefer this. Furthermore, the handrails— made of sweat resistant, grip-able material—are extensive to allow eight different holding positions.

With the ASUNA 7700, you can walk/run forward, backward, and sideways—you can even do a series of squats on it. You can do sled-push/drive movements. You can also do climbing exercises—with the hands-on floor, pushing with legs, or hands walking on the Treadmill, with feet on the floor.

XTERRA TRX3500 Folding Treadmill | 30 Preset Workout Programs

The XTERRA TRX3500 Folding Treadmill is a good option for shoppers with smaller treadmill budgets. It meets performance standards set for higher-priced treadmills. I also like how the TRX3500 supports two user-profiles and delivers a variety of customizable exercise programs.

Key features include a two-ply 60” x 20” workout surface, a 3.0 HP drive motor, a power incline to 12 percent; 30 preset workout programs; and a heart rate controlled workout program that works with a wireless chest strap. However, the HR chest strap does not come included with the machine.

Workout data is shown on a 6.5” LCD with blue backlighting for easy reading. An animated racetrack graphic illustrates your progress, and the window displays multiple data points at once. For comparison, many other low-priced treadmills have smaller readouts and require scanning to show different data fields.

You can pair an Apple or Android mobile device via Bluetooth with the TRX3500 Treadmill to export your calorie burn, distance covered, heart rate, other treadmill exercise statistics. The free XTERRA Fitness app is also compatible with Fitbit wearables and other fitness mobile apps.
