Horizon - Elite 507 Folding Treadmill £999 @ Fitness Superstore

Found 24th Jan 2012
I have had this model treadmill for nearly four years, running between 600 and 1000 miles each year and I thoroughly recommend it. It has a long deck (good for tall runners) with an orthopaedic belt, goes up to 12mph and 12% incline.

The power of the motor is better than most home treadmills, and the warranty includes three years for labour, which most do not include. Parts are covered for five years.

This is the lowest price I've seen it for over three years - usually it dips to around the £1200 mark with extra for delivery. If you are looking for a better quality, longer lasting treadmill than most of the tat in the sales, then give this some serious consideration.

Or you could take your @ss outside and save a grand
The horizon stuff is good for home use, we bought some the life fitness stuff a couple of years back from fitness superstore. Also have a look on gymworld.co.uk as they often have bargains at this time of year.

I run outside as well, but as we have 4 months of winter where I live, I also have a home gym setup.

I could save 40 grand not buying a car, 600 grand not buying a house, but why would I limit myself to tesco value and a rental flat in some downtrodden area just to save cash

I'll be willing to bet that the most exercise you do is lifting your arm to hail a taxi to the pub.

Anybody seriously looking for a treadmill would be mad not to look at this deal.

Also, I have saved a fortune in gym membership by having the treadmill and my own set of free weights.

If tread mills are anything like exercise bikes then you could get about 90% off the original price by buying a second hand one on eBay. I got a Tunturi one that cost £1000 18 months ago for £60. There is no second hand market at all plus you can't really ship the thing so it is local pick-up only. I know some people don't like the idea of second hand stuff but a second hand exercise bike has been used a lot less than the one at the gym.

I just had a quick look at some completed listings. They have sold between £500 and £700 second hand.

The cheapest new ones are £1100.

I'm tempted to sell mine and buy this new one
I bought a nordictrack for 300 from 1000 on ebay. 2year old but 1year warranty remaining and looked unused.
Don't ever buy these new. And if it breaks you can buy 3 and it still works out cheaper
ooops, mine is worth less now. I bought one 2 years ago for £1400, has had under 2 hours of use and don't get a chance to use it.
Totally honest, excellent machine. Well worth it. Sturdy, well made and will take upto 28 stones.
The reebok ones are £700 and they are really flimsy...£999 is well cheap.

It might be worth checking whether the warranty was transferable, you might find you can't claim on it.

I don't dispute any points about second hand being cheaper, especially since most people use treadmills as expensive clothes horses. However as I say, for anybody that runs a lot who is seriously looking for a new treadmill, then this is a bargain. Hopefully, people will have the brains to look past the deal temperature and won't miss this.

LOL. £700 quid an hour Have you seriously only used it for two hours in two years?

I wouldn't worry too much about the price as they do go back up and sell for around £1300-£1400.

It looks like the treadmills hold up a lot better than the bikes. I was just shocked that I could buy a really good, solid bike with HRM and programs for less than one of the argos rickety, POS bikes cost. I imagine that the price fluctuates by season for second hand. Virtually nobody will buy an exercise bike in June and equally few will buy a real bike in December. I should really stop talking about bikes because this is a treadmill thread

No doubt this is a cracking deal for a new machine, though.
Boxed weight 140kgs, I will not be able to get that upstair easily!
Could anyone comment on whether this is better than the Nordic Track T14 treadmill - both are about the same price.

defo. i read the reviews when buying mine and heavily researched into it. I can't remember why but the horizon 507 is better in my opinion,

I can't comment on the Nordic Track, but if your budget is £1000 you will not be disappointed with the 507. When comparing, look closely at the warranty, because when I bought mine the Horizon warranty was second to none. Also, I'm pretty sure that it was the only treadmill at that price with a 4KW motor, though things may have moved on with other treadmills in the last few years.
Why is this expired? The deal is still on.
