Horizon T303 Treadmill

The Horizon T303 is the latest addition to join Horizon’s budget line of treadmills.

The T303 features 3-Zone Variable Response Cushioning Technology to prevent wear and tear on your joints. This machine is capable of 0-15% incline, which is a substantial performance feature for any treadmill—not just in a budget friendly category.
