Don't buy if you have carpet

I am mightily dissatisfied with my recent purchase of a Horizon Evolve SG Treadmill. I received the treadmill just over 10 days ago and set it up the way the instruction manual said. Nowhere did anything say not to use it on carpet, but I immediately noticed a loud screeching noise when I tried to use it on the carpet. Carpet is all I have at home, except in the entryway to my living room and my garage, neither of which is suitable for a treadmill. So I am out the price of a treadmill and pad, which I would not have had to spend if your literature and advertising were truthful. My previous treadmill was constructed differently, so that the belt did not rub against the carpet.



Pros: Makes a great shelf

Cons: Noisy, Not for carpet

Describe Yourself: Occasional Exerciser

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Angry customer from Texas

Don't purchase. Motor didn't work.

The console had power but not the motor, and consequently the belt did not run. How this unit passed an inspection makes one doubt an inspection occurred at all. Recommendation: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

This treadmill as exactly as advertised

I use this treadmill for walking not jogging. I set the speed at 4 mph for 1 hour, three times a week. This machine is very easy to use. In the past, I went to a local park to walk, however, I would not walk at the park during inclement weather. Now I walk no matter what the weather conditions are. I have reduced my waist by 1"" in the last 5 months. This treadmill exceeds all of my expectations.



Pros: Easy To Setup, Easy To Store, Great Controls, Quiet, Safe, Sturdy Design

Best Uses: Endurance Training, Heart Rate Training, Low Impact Exercise, Weight Loss

Describe Yourself: Frequent Exerciser

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

DON'T BE UPSET BY THE LOW [$] PRICE!!

I USE THE EVOLVE SG TREADMILL FOR ABOUT AN HOUR PRIOR TO BEDTIME. I THEN COOL DOWN WITH A SHOWER AND SLEEP LIKE A LOG. I GET UP IN THE MORNING REFRESHED AND READY TO TAKE ON NYC. I CANNOT THINK OF ANYTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS PRODUCT AT THIS TIME. I HAVE A GYM MEMBERSHIP AND HAVE USED TREADMILLS QUITE OFTEN. ALL IN ALL TAKING THE PRODUCT'S LOW PRICE, EXCELLENT PORTABILITY & FOLDING, ELECTRONIC LCD FEATURES, 1.5 MOTOR AND ABOVE ALL ELSE ITS UNIQUE SIMPLICITY MAKE THE EVOLVE SG AN OUTSTANDING PRODUCT. THE ADVERTISING IS TRUE TO ITS WORD. I WOULD HAVE TO GIVE EVOLVE SG FIVE OUT OF FIVE NY BRAVOS! WELL DONE.
