What We Don’t Like:

- It lacks a decline-option: the Horizon Fitness Elite T7 also lacks a decline training-option and it’s only equipped with an incline-option.
The Horizon Fitness Elite T7 is actually one of the best treadmills in its price-range and class whereby it features a solid construction coupled with several amazing features that will ensure you get an effective and efficient workout that meets your fitness-goals. However, this treadmill is abit expensive and those of you who not willing to spend a lot on treadmill may consider buying another cheaper treadmill than the Horizon Fitness Elite T7.
