The NordicTrack Elite 14.7 is a forward drive elliptical trainer, that adds the benefits of a touch screen with built-in web browser. You can be entertained during your workout with the ability to check the news, interact in social networks and view media.
A key design feature of this model is the power ramp. The user is able to adjust the incline from -10 % up to 20% with a touch of a button and so alter the shape of their stride. This allows the user to concentrate on developing one or more specific muscle groups.
Other highlights include: Silent Magnetic Resistance braking, Cardiogrip heart rate monitor, in-handle controls and dual cooling fans.
The machine is covered by a strong warranty which
offers a lifetime warranty on the frame, 5 years on all parts and 2 years labor.
Here's a list of the main features:
... display / web browser
The 7" color, touch screen incorporates a web browser. This enables the user to connect to their home's wireless internet network and check their email, surf the web or participate in social networking activities.
Just like a normal display screen the user can check their progress, but the user is able to navigate through menus and pull up relevant workout data with just a swipe of the finger.
The touch screen display both motivates and entertains by allowing the user to go online and update their status, read, or see their way through a video workout in High Definition.
... magnetic braking
Silent Magnetic Resistance (SMR) braking is used on
this model. This system offers a frictionless, resistance braking which
is very smooth in operation and allows the user to adjust the intensity
of their workout without having to break the continuity of their
... heart rate monitor
The trainer is also equipped with a "CardioGrip" heart rate monitor. By monitoring your heart rate using the sensors that are built into the handlebars you can make the most out of each workout.
A "Polar" wireless chest strap is also included which transmits your heart
rate data continuously to the display without any need to touch the
heart rate sensors on the handlebars.
By monitoring your heart rate you can ensure that you're always in the right training zone for your goals. This results in a more effective workout, burn more fat, and improve your cardiovascular health.
... power ramp
Another innovative feature of this trainer is the
"power ramp". The elevation of the ramp can be adjusted
between the values of -10 % up to 20 % at the touch of a button.
Depending upon the amount of elevation selected there is a corresponding change in the motion of the elliptical which enables different muscle groups to be engaged.
... upper body grips
Upper body grips allow the user to burn more calories and tone the muscle groups in the arms and trunk. These workout arms feature soft touch grips and are able to accommodate any height of user. They fall naturally to hand and remain comfortable throughout the workout.
... in-handle controls
The user is able to adjust the intensity of the workout using control buttons built into the upper body arms. The controls to adjust the angle of the ramp is built into the left hand arm while the controls to adjust the resistance are built into the right hand arm.
... ergonomic pedals
This elliptical is equipped with large, cushioned pedals. These ergonomically designed pedals allow for a number of different foot positions and thus provide the user with greater stability and comfort during the workout.

Well built and sturdy. I love the hefty flywheel. The Elite 14.7 gives a commercial quality workout.
I bought this machine to replace a treadclimber that I had used for 10 years. The only reason I got an elliptical was the treadclimber warranty was reduced to 3 years from 5 years when I bought it.
This machine is an extremely good workout and the degree of difficulty seems almost limitless.
It comes with a 5 year warranty to which I added an additional 4 years, so a 9 year warranty including parts and labor.
I felt I couldn't go wrong with a purchase of this machine that I could use for a minimum of 9 years.
I am extremely happy with my purchase.
Works great and gives you many options to keep your work-out interesting.
