Before I begin with today’s post, I will take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy, healthy, peaceful and prosperous 2009. I am sure most of us have made resolutions we plan to stick to. To make it easier for you to stick to your physical fitness resolutions through tough economic times and weather, we bring to you reviews of portable, foldable and economic treadmills. The Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill is one such treadmill.
- One of the most compact foldable treadmills I have seen in the market – It folds flat to only 10” – easy to store under beds.
- The Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill can also be made to stand folded and upright against a wall or in the closet – real ease in storage.
- It weighs just 45 kilos or 99 lbs and comes with wheel attachments – talk about portability!
- The Set-Up is as easy as 1-2-3 and it arrives fully assembled.
- It provides convenient built-in speakers for MP3 usage.
- The Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill comes with a lifetime warranty on frame, 5 years on motor and a year of warranty on parts and labour.
- Keeping with the foldable range of treadmills, Many companies are giving customers up until the 10th or 15th of the month to pay their first premium. the Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill offers 2 programs – Weight Loss and Manual and the display shows the time, speed, distance, calories burnt etc.
- The Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill is priced at USD 599.
- The Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill, because of its light weight, is not a very stable machine.
- Due to the same reason, it also has a limited user load capacity of 250 kilos.
- The Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill is more suited for walking and light jogging than for running or any other heavy-duty treadmill workouts.
- As the belt is a compact 17” (W) x 45” (L), its compactness allows easy workout by those under 5’8” in height.
- Belt cushioning is at bare minimum levels.
- The Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill has a 1.5 continuous drive HP motor.
If you are serious about treadmill workouts and do moderate to high intensity workout son it such as running etc or are tall and consequently have longer strides, the Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill is not for you. I am of the personal opinion that any treadmill’s rating scale is dependent on its belt cushioning, stability, program features, motor strength and price. Except for pricing, this treadmill does not measure up. However, if you are a just-begun or your part of the world experiences harsher weather conditions keeping you at home, the Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill is perfect for you. The price at USD is unparalled as is the warranty and storability.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
