Horizon Fitness is part of the Johnson Health Tech based in Taiwan. JHT has been a global leader for decades in home and commercial fitness equipment manufacturer. They are also known as the world’s third-largest workout equipment manufacturer.
Horizon Fitness features six main categories of machines: Elliptical trainers, treadmills, Rowers, Stepper, exercise bikes, and Strength.
Horizon Fitness provides durable and innovative elliptical trainers for affordable prices. The SixStar certified frame for maximum comfort and performance and Magnetic brake resistance are only some of the features that helped Horizon Fitness to gain loyal customers around the globe. Many Horizon Fitness ellipticals offer Blue LCD displays, multiple programs, Bluetooth compatibility and more.
However, they are still not as popular as companies such as Precor and Life Fitness for the elliptical trainers. Because they don’t have as many elliptical trainers and most Horizon cross trainers are fit for residential use only. So if you are looking to equip your gym, you may also want to check other brands such as Life Fitness and Precor.
