The Horizon T72 Treadmill Review — Same great unit with a new name


Your Treadmill Sensei has been suffering from a bout with pneumonia for the past week and hasn’t ventured out to the DOJO since Wednesday! However, my loyaty to you, my readers, has forced me up out of bed and to my computer once more.

Now, since I am still weak and ready to go back to sleep, I am going to do a quick and easy review. This time I am going to review the Horizon T72 Treadmill. For those of you who have already read my review of the Horizon T62, which the Horizon T72 is replacing, there won’t be a lot new.

For all intents and purposes, the Horizon T72 is exactly the same as its predecessor. They share the exact same stats — the same big 2 HP Johnson Tech motor, 20×55 inch running deck, 2.6″ tapered rollers (which will help extend the lifetime of both your belt and motor), 10mph top speed, 10% incline, 300 pound user capacity, and 3/5 inch deck thickness. The Horizon T72 and T62 are fraternal twins instead of maternal ones…they’re exactly the same down deep but you can tell them apart at a glance.

There are a few cosmetic differences on the new Horizon T72 Treadmill (and Horizon isn’t really fooling anyone by renaming their shock absorbtion technology “AirCell” instead of “GelCell.”), but the only real difference is in the display screen. The Horizon T72’s new monitor seems to be a lot sharper and easier to read than the old ones.

If you want a good, solid machine at under $800 then step up on a Horizon T72. For maintaining the quality of its ancestors, the Treadmill Sensei gives the Horizon T72 Treadmill 4 out of 5 Golden Buddahs.

The T72 Treadmill by Horizon gets a solid 4 gold buddahs out of 5!
