Another good model from Horizon fitness would be T500 treadmill. This one has a nice design with a 2.0 CHP motor which is quiet and does its job well. If you want something that is good for long run at good speed, a motor above this rating would be preferred. As with most of the Horizon treadmills, this has a sturdy design with great controls and is easy to store.
Some people do get issues with installation but a help from the dealer would be a good option and do check out on the price discounts.
