NordicTrack Treadmill Desk Platinum Review





The NordicTrack Treadmill Platinum Desk represents the latest in treadmill technology benefiting users from healthy exercise while simultaneously working at a desk. This Platinum version offers a more powerful motor and power incline over the entry model.

The desk  comprises of a substantial, mahogany grained, top with a rounded, plastic edge panel which houses the control buttons, display screen and grab rail. The edge panel has been engineered so as not to encroach too much on the available desk space.

The desk top is supported by two metal uprights which can be raised or lowered. This allows the height of the desk surface to be adjusted so that it is at the ideal height for the user.

The walking surface comprises of a 60" x 22" belt which is driven by a 3.0 CHP (continuous duty) motor. The speed of the belt can be regulated in 0.1 MPH increments with a starting speed of just 1 MPH.

This model is iFIT enabled. A Bluetooth device such as a tablet can be connected to access the iFIT account to add extra functionality, and engage your interest. This feature requires a home, wireless internet connection and subscription to iFIT.com available separately.

The product is underwritten by a lifetime frame and motor warranty, 2 yrs parts warranty and a 1 year labor warranty.

It's available at a discounted price from NordicTrack

Here are the main features:







… drive motor

The tread belt is driven by a powerful 3.0 CHP motor. This unit makes use of high-grade wiring, insulation, and a thermal cut-off switch. The unit is constructed using high-end, commercial bearings and brushes to ensure reliability and long life. 

The motor is also dynamically spin-balanced and extensively tested for superior performance in vibration and noise in order to deliver a smooth and quiet operation.




... work desk

The key feature of this treadmill is it's integrated work desk. The treadmill desk is able to serve as a work station and provides a stable platform to support, books, paperwork or a  laptop computer. 

The 1" thick, mahogany grained, desk top measures 40" x 18" and is bounded on it's front edge by a contoured, plastic panel with an integrated grab rail.

On the right hand side of the panel are the control buttons to adjust the speed of the walking surface together with the LCD display screen.








... welded steel frame

The equipment is based upon a welded steel frame that contributes to the overall strength and rigidity of the unit.

The innovative design of the frame effectively isolates any movements being transmitted to the uprights, thus keeping the desk top stable.





... adjustable desk height

The desk is supported by twin chrome uprights which can be raised or lowered to adjust the height of the work desk.

This will enable the user to adjust the height of the desk top in order to obtain the perfect height for reading books, papers or operating a lap top computer while walking comfortably on the tread belt.









… treadmill controls

A cleverly designed control panel built into the leading edge of the desk  top allows the user full control over the treadmill functions without encroaching too much upon the available desk space.

Clearly labelled start and stop buttons are present together with speed and incline buttons that offer quick, easy adjustment.

The user is able to vary their speed from 0 to 8 MPH in increments of 0.1 MPH while the deck incline can be varied from 0 to 10 %.




... desktop  integrated display

Built into the control panel is an LCD display panel that allows the user to monitor their progress. The display tracks the following data:

TIME, DISTANCE, CALORIES, CALORIES PER HOUR, INCLINE, SPEED








... USB charging station

The user is able to charge their phone or tablet device with a USB charging station built into the console.





... iFIT Bluetooth Enabled

This treadmill is iFIT enabled. A Bluetooth device such as a tablet can be connected in order to access an iFIT account.

Customized workouts, Google Map generated routes and automatic stats tracking add extra functionality and engage the user's interest.

It should be noted that this feature requires a home, wireless internet connection and membership to iFIT.com which is sold separately.









... safety key

A safety key and lanyard is provided with the treadmill desk. In order for the equipment to be operational the key must be present in the control console. This means that with the key withdrawn the unit cannot be operated by unauthorized users such as small children.

The safety key has a lanyard with a small plastic clip attached to one end which can be clipped onto the users clothing. If the user were to accidentally trip or fall while on the treadmill the key is pulled away from the console causing the walking belt to slow to a stop.






... folding design

This is a folding or "space saver" model which means that when not in use the equipment can be folded into a near upright position where it will then occupy a lot smaller floor area.

I have been using the Treadmill Desk for a couple months and am very happy with it.

It runs smoothly, is very quiet, and is easy to use. I get lots of work done while using it and it is also a great place to read, email, use the phone.

I wish the desktop was a little bigger but that has not been much of a problem.







I was finding it very difficult to reliably get exercise, especially in the winter. I started having problems sleeping and had my thyroid checked, vitamin D,etc. I tried a lot of therapies and supplements but nothing helped.

I began reflecting back to times in my life when I slept really well and other periods of insomnia, and the common denominator I found was exercise.

I decided to invest in this treadmill in hopes it would help me get the activity I needed in the day which would in turn help me sleep at night.

That is exactly what it's done. After over 14 months of terrible insomnia (seeing a number of doctors). I am now sleeping like a rock. Amazing.

It's a great machine and I look forward to using it everyday.

The incline feature and speeds are all I need to break a sweat and vary my workout enough.

The desk feature is a bonus and my favorite part about this model is the way the belt folds up so it doesn't take over my bedroom.

I couldn't be happier with my purchase and my husband loves it too.








Perfect size. Easy to put together although would be much easier to install desktop with two people because of wiring connection.

The right size, as others were wider and didn't offer the ability to fold up to make room.

Happy with the quality and additional speed over competitor treadmills as well.
