Fortunately, the Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill may fit the bill (another option is the Horizon Fitness T101-4). It has been designed for people who have space constraints in mind. However, this isn’t to say that the Evolve SG is perfect, as there are a few issues – although minor.
The Horizon Evolve SG 1.5 continuous horsepower motor does an excellent job of providing smooth acceleration and deceleration of belt speeds. The speed varies from 1 mph to 6 mph and can be stopped instantly with just a pull of the console safety key, which we felt was a nice touch – particularly for those who have children.
The running surface is smaller than most other treadmills, measuring 17” x 45,” although, this should still be enough space to accommodate most walking and jogging strides to ensure a comfortable walking/jogging experience. A maximum user weight of 250 lbs can be supported.
The Evolve SG only comes with 2 workout programs, which are manual and weight loss. While these are effective, it would have been nice for Horizon to have included a couple more programs.
Many people are put off purchasing a treadmill because of the difficult assembly process associated with these machines. Not only does it take at least 2 people to move the treadmill to your location of choice, but you then have to spend a couple of hours trying to put all the pieces together, which can be a difficult task at the best of times. Fortunately, the Evolve SG weighs only 99 lbs and comes fully assembled. All you have to do is unfold the machine and plug it in. That’s it.
The machine does not require much storage space – it fits under a bed (folds up 10” high) – and thanks to the innovative design all you are required to do is simply fold it down.
The Horizon Evolve SG LCD display is quite basic. It reports distance, speed, time, calories burned and pulse – through the thumb heart rate button. However, the strength of the display lies in its readability and accuracy.
This treadmill comes with a 10 year frame, 5 year motor and 1 year electrical components, parts and labor warranty.

Besides the lack of a water bottle holder, the only thing of significance to complain about is the sound quality of the built-in stereo speakers. While the quality is not terrible, music sounds tinny.; therefore, you would probably be better off using your MP3 player.
Anything Else You Should Know?
There isn’t much to add. All you need to know is that if you have space constraints, are on a budget or want a treadmill that is easy to set up and store, you should look no further than the Horizon Evolve SG. While it doesn’t come with a whole lot of bells and whistles, it more than makes up for it in its reliability, effectiveness and compact, sleek design.
