We may be only a few months into the 2007 model year, but the Horizon Fitness product line already can boast a number of winners. Whether recognized by industry experts or everyday consumers, these awards demonstrate our commitment to giving you the highest quality workout experience possible.
For the second consecutive year, Horizon Fitness took home top honors in Health magazine's Best of Fitness Awards competition. This latest year's awards went to the RCT7.6 for best treadmill under $1,500, and the PSE7 for best elliptical trainer under $1,500.
The RCT7.6 (sold exclusively at Sears): "This machine is all about ease and comfort. The adjustable screen is easy to see from any angle, and you can change the speed and incline right on the handlebars. The gel-cushioned landing pad is easy on your feet and knees."
The PSE7 (sold exclusively at Dick's Sporting Goods): "The pivoting footpads on this model make for a more natural stride, and the pedals are set a mere 1.5 inches apart to reduce the stress on your hips and lower back. Use the tracker program to keep tabs on your progress."
The Elite Series T6 AFG treadmill from Horizon Fitness was one of eight products recommended by Runner's World in their January 2007 issue. "We like how the straightforward console's single programming button makes creating an intricate custom workout. It also has two heart-rate training zones that are usually derived from your age and weight. This lets a runner target a specific training zone. The orthopedic belt provides a cushy landing — perfect for runners concerned with overuse injuries." This is the second year in a row that Runner's World recommended a Horizon Fitness product.
In addition to industry recognition, Horizon Fitness products also performed well with consumer groups. The PST8 treadmill (sold exclusively at Dick's Sporting Goods) and EX-55 elliptical trainer both received Best Buy ratings from leading consumer products magazines. And treadmilladvice.com, a site that helps educate consumers on shopping for treadmills, recently named the Horizon Elite 3.3 a Best Buy in the $1,000 to $2,000 price range.
