Horizon Fitness Treadmill Review

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Fitfluential; a review of the Horizon Fitness Treadmill.

Horizon Fitness Treadmills

For starters, I want to serve up this thought + opinion of mine: I don’t buy into the judgmental approach towards runners and how they choose to run. For instance: judging the choice to run on pavement, a track, sand or a treadmill. Breaking a sweat and challenging your body is what it’s all about and I love how a treadmill can fit into any routine and allows you to exercise remotely when need be.

My experience with Johnson Fitness began in college when I logged many hours running inside at my University’s Wellness Center as a way to zone out and take study breaks. Oddly enough, there were also times where I used the cardio equiptment to multitask and get studying done while I put some miles on the machine.

The treadmill is a neat way to integrate technological advancements in our era to elevate your fitness.

I have found this machine come in handy the most when:

-Conditions outside are dodgey (ice + snow) and I’d rather be inside sweating without avoiding obstacles

-I’m traveling and want to complete a late night workout without braving the streets of an unfamiliar town

-I am training and want to keep my mile paces consistent to keep me accountable

-I want to get some reading + video watching in while exerting myself

Horizon provides all kinds of neat science behind the structure and design of their treadmills:

“The simple assembly and easy-to-use features on Horizon Fitness machines make getting started and sticking to a workout routine easy. Horizon equipment is specially designed to fit the body so you can move naturally while you work out. And space-saving technologies like Featherlight Folding mean your machine will fit perfectly in your living space. When you buy Horizon, you buy direct from the manufacturer, so you can rest assured you’re getting a dependable machine for the best value.”

but my favorite part in my own less-sciency wording is that this machine allows for your natural motions and doesn’t impede it. Running is a free and natural feeling + experience, so it’s neat to have a machine that simply facilities that happening.

They are a brand that is worth checking out for your own exercise equipment. You can find them all over social media and also on their site. Check out the links below to locate their social platforms!

YogaSmoga Twistie Tank Review

This is a review of the YogaSmoga Twistie Tank.

  

YogaSmoga

Overall Rating: 4 Stars

I’ve checked out & reviewed a pair of workout capris and a headband from YogaSmoga once before and found the quality & comfort of their pieces is sublime. The Run Jump ‘n’ Play Capris are still one of my favorite pairs hanging in my closet and they get a ton of use. You can check out that whole review & the photos with it here.

So, with this tank, I’ll get the teensy bit of bad news out of out the way first: tanks with a flowy/loose bottom seem to be the only ones that work for me. Tighter fitting ones (like this one) always ride up on my waist (likely because of my shape–it’s not a product flaw) and are not suitable for me to run in because they don’t stay put.

However, judging this tank just as it is designed to fit, it’s pretty freaking awesome. (Is this making sense?) Basically, I will live in this tank around the house and for things not exercise related. I just won’t work out in it often because of how it moves on my torso.

I was very impressed by the feel of the material and how the built-in shelf provides enough support that I can wear this tank comfortable out of the house without a bra–love that! The color combination is pretty & vibrant & I love the design of the straps in the back. It’s an excellent staple piece to have in your closet to wear even as a cami. If this tank would work for around-the-house AND for running, it would get my highest rating.

As expected, excellent-quality product from YogaSmoga & I’m sure many gals who are tight tank fans will adore this one.
