What We Don’t Like:

  • It only has contact-grips for heart-rate monitoring: the pulse-monitor (contact-grips) found on this treadmill are manual and is this is not good. In fact, contact-grips tend to be less accurate and convenient compared to wireless pulse or heart monitoring systems.
  • A weaker drive-motor: this treadmill is equipped with a 2.75-chp motor which is actually less powerful than the motors found in other treadmills of the same price-range.


Our Verdict:

The Horizon Fitness Adventure 5 is actually a premium quality treadmill that has been equipped with some of the best features but at a slightly higher price. In fact, if you’re looking for treadmill to use at home then the Horizon Fitness Adventure 5 Treadmill will work perfectly for you but if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on a treadmill then consider buying another great treadmill at an affordable price.
