Review of Nordictrack Machines

It’s no wonder that NordicTrack, owned by ICON Health and Fitness, is way up there with the big boys when it comes to quality, performance, and durability for indoor workout machines. Based in Minnesota, they know what winter is like, so one day the founder decided to move exercising indoors.

NordicTrack has never looked back since. Presently, this top international brand offers all types of workout equipment from ellipticals to treadmills. When you review the website, the extensive product offering will immediately become apparent. And they also include all the top extras, which vary slightly depending on the series.

So, let’s get right to it and begin the reviewing so that you can decide whether NordicTrack treadmill has the perfect exercise equipment for you.

Our Top Picks

The full range of NordicTrack treadmills include incline trainers, the traditional and desk versions. The entire series, except for the ‘desk,’ have Android touchscreen displays for comfortable and convenient use.

You also get a wide range of training programs from the iFit coaching stable that cater to anything you could want concerning workout programs. You can run or walk anywhere you like with the integrated Google Maps facility that offers an extensive variety of different exercise scenarios – it’s almost like being outdoors.

And the onboard computer keeps perfect track of your workouts so that you know where you are at – we just had to do some reviewing after testing this baby.

What We Really Like

  • The consoles – With NordicTrack you get integrated Android-powered high definition touchscreen consoles with a plethora of extras to keep you motivated and on track when you are exercising. You get it all from self-adjusting fans, the iFit application for numerous coaching programs and more.
  • Top of the range motors – NordicTrack has some of the most powerful motors out there (more details in the following section). You get anything from the 3.0 CHP and more. You indeed won’t have any trouble with a high-performance run on this machine.
  • Warranty – When reviewing the website you will automatically come across the lifetime warranty for the frame and motor. To boot, customers also benefit from a 6-year parts protection and three years of guaranteed labor.

What We Didn’t Love

  • Putting it all together – It is quite a challenge if you are not of the more practical mindset. It may be a good idea to shell out some more cash for a professional build-up service.

Analyzing the Different Series

Reviewing the Best Ones

Commercial Series

The commercial treadmill series from NordicTrack comes in two variants and two prices. For one, there is the Commercial 1750 and on the other hand, the Commercial 2950. The latter model is the more high-end treadmill at a higher cost.

If iFit is essential to you, the Commercial 2950 offers a one-year coaching package included in the purchase price. Other than that both models have a state-of-the-art touchscreen display and possibly the quietest workout experiences around thanks to the whisper motor. On that note, if you want a more powerful 4.25 CHP motor, then the pricier version is the one for you.

C Series

The C Series is somewhat cheaper than the series as mentioned above – even the priciest model is way lower.

The motor power ranges from 2.75 CPH motor to 3.75 CPH motor, making all three model suitable for running. Although, it must be said that if you prefer greater speed and durability that your best option is a 3.0 CPH motor or more.

The low-cost versions do not have a web-enabled touchscreen; however, you can integrate your tablet to the holder to spruce up your workout experience.

All three maximize your floor space with the easy to use folding option. Overall, one of the best reviewed products in this category out there.


We reviewed the Incline Series, and we have to say that the high-performance workout offered by this series is practically insurmountable. Before you know it, you will be burning calories and build up muscle due to the versatility of the platform.

It’s absolutely incredible – it is seldom that we ever came across incline levels of forty percent. It’s like running up a steep mountain – now, that is what we call a serious exercise regimen. And on the other side of the coin, a decline level of six percent merely is unparalleled in the treadmill industry.


The NordicTrack Trainers or T-Series offers are ideal for getting the very best out of your home workout. It’s all about the design – they are sleek, ascetic and do not take up much space without forfeiting the performance.

Both models in this dual series have 3.0 CHP motors, more than enough for some serious running. And if you want to spice up the action for your leg muscles, you can adjust the incline up to twelve percent.

The T14.0, the high-end model, has a touchscreen display and a comprehensive offer of different workout programs.

Desk Treadmills

The Treadmill Desk and the Treadmill Desk Platinum subdivide this category of products in the NordicTrack stable.

The overall appearance of a Desk range amalgamates a large firm platform with cushioned tracks upon which you can walk for hours. We place particular emphasis on ‘walk’ because these two models have top speeds of six and eight mph respectively. The Platinum at eight mph is better suited for jogging than the Desk.

Both models have a small slat monitor that can connect to your tablet if you want online options. So, iFit for extra training programs is a given.

Our Final Thoughts

In summary, after we reviewed the treadmill by NordicTrack stable of exercise products, it is safe to say that this brand has what it takes to bring your fitness goals to the next level.

Thanks to the full range of models from the more basic C Series to the top-of-the-range Commercial 2950, just about anybody can find the perfect fit for their workout needs.
