The Horizon 7.0AT Treadmill is a good contender in the runner’s treadmill category. It’s powerful with a 3.0 CHP (horsepower). It’s strong – made with a steel frame and manages up to 325 pounds of user’s weight. The running deck is a little longer than the home gym standard at 20” x 60” to accommodate most heights and strides; and it also has variable cushioning to lessen impact on knees, ankles and hips. The deck will also incline up to 15% and move up to 12 mph. You have the option to connect to Android or Apple devices and apps via Bluetooth; fitness apps such as the free AFG Pro App, UA and FitBit. Heart rate monitor, a pulse grip, is easily accessible. The display screen at 7”, however, is a little on the small side when comparing to the new standard of screens now on the market.

Rating: 87.5/100. The Horizon 7.0AT treadmill is for runners. It has a horsepower of 3.0 CHP! Well technically it’s for runners but it can also be for walkers; but the 7.0AT is built to sustain the energy and force of running. The frame is made of steel, which is always better than plastic. It will also securely manage 325 lbs of user’s weight. The running deck is 20” x 60” (usually the size of a home deck is 55” long), this is good for the long strides of runners and their varying heights. It also has variable cushioning, providing protection to the joints by softening impact on take off and landing. This is important for long-term use; it’s critical to protect your knees, ankles and hips. The speed is 0-12 mph – good range for interval training. 7.0AT has an incline of up to 15%, which is the standard and good enough for most. Incline allows for a lower impact workout on the knees and tendons when deck is angled. The heart rate monitor is in the form of a grip pulse on the handles in front – makes for quick and easy readings. It’s becoming the norm for the program offerings to come through via Bluetooth from fitness apps. 7.0AT is compatible with Android and Apple devices and apps. The free AFG Pro App can be accessed through tablet or phone: calories, time, distance, fat burn target heart rate along with more advanced features. Furthermore, the apps, UA and FitBit can also be synced. Speakers – plug them in or use through BlueTooth to enhance your devices sound. The warranty is good, it offers a lifetime on frame and motor and three years on parts.
