Several Horizon Fitness products were recently recognized for their quality and performance by several highly respected national magazines. Health magazine, Runner's World and a leading national consumer products magazine all prominently featured Horizon Fitness products among the best in the industry. In addition, a Horizon treadmill was among the top 5 finalists for "Sports Product of the Year".
Horizon Fitness was named the winner of Health magazine's 2006 Best of Fitness Awards in both the Elliptical Trainer (under $1,500) and Treadmill (under $1,500) categories, making Horizon one of only two companies to win multiple times for equipment. Health's prestigious Best of Fitness Awards highlight the best in gear, gadgets, equipment and more.
Runner's World featured eight top treadmills in its February 2006 issue, chosen by a panel of treadmill experts. After 150 runners tested treadmills at the Michigan Athletic Center in East Lansing, the Horizon Fitness Elite 5.2T emerged on the prestigious Top Eight list. The magazine listed the 5.2T as an ideal entry-level model for runners with limited space in their workout area. Testers also liked how easily the machine folded up.
In its February 2006 issue, a respected consumer products magazine rated three different Horizon treadmills: the Performance Series PST8, Elite 5.2T and CST 4.5. The publication named the Horizon Performance Series PST8 as a "Best Buy" in its folding class. The Elite 5.2T and CST 4.5 both had strong showings in the magazine, receiving "very good" ratings.
Finally, the Horizon Fitness WT 950 wireless pedometer treadmill has been named a Top 5 Finalist for Sports Product of the Year. This program, produced by Sports Edge magazine and SGMA International (Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association), showcases the best product innovations in the sport industry. It is the only program of its type to celebrate the best and brightest sports products in the world.
