Review: Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill Review

The Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill genuinely stands out when compared to its market competitors for a couple of reasons. Firstly, unlike some other treadmills, when Horizon say compact they really mean it. The Horizon Evolve SG Compact truly is a compact treadmill ñ when not in use it folds down to a tiny 59 x 10 inches, making it comfortably one of the most compact treadmills available. Secondly, the Horizon Evolve SG Compact has no assembly requirements - none. It arrives fully assembled and ready to go; all you need to do is lubricate the belt. Most compact treadmills claim to be easy to assemble, but Horizon have taken it one step further and removed the assembly requirements altogether.

There are few things that make a person appear older than they are than reduced muscle mass. This results in trembling and falls. Skin sags and droops in our arms and even on our face. This is due to a process called sarcopenia which involves the death of neurons that control the fibers of muscles. These neurons die due to lack of use. Thus, the best way to avoid sarcopenia or to reverse it is via exercise. The same holds true for your mind. Another noticeable sign of aging is mental slowing; but, exercising your brain can keep it strong for years to come. Let's discuss physical and mental exercises that can help you stay youthful.
