Nordic Track Professional Series 3500 Treadmill Review

The Nordic Track Professional Series 3500 residential treadmill that feels like a commercial model.

This is a residential treadmill with the look and feel of a commercial grade model. The NordicTrack Professional Series 3500 has an over engineered frame gives it a very solid feel and the ability to withstand the most rigorous workouts – this is a very stable treadmill.

The large (20″ x 60″) running surface is extremely comfortable to run on due to the NordicTrack “DuraSoft” shock absorption, which results in less stress on ankles, knees and hips.

The drive is provided by a very powerful 3.0 HP commercial “DurX” motor which has been dynamically balanced to ensure that it is both smooth and quite in operation.

Here are the main points of interest:
… drive motor

This model utilizes a huge 3.0 HP Commercial DurX Motor. This is dynamically balanced to reduce vibration providing smooth, quiet operation and a self-cooling process that will extend the life of the motor.
… shock absorption

Walking or running on pavement can wreak havoc to joints, often causing pain or injury. NordicTrack’s DuraSoft Cushioning helps protect the important connective tissues of your ankles, knees and hip joints. The durable isolator cushioning absorbs impact as your foot makes contact with the tread belt, resulting in added protection and workout comfort.
… built-in workouts

Achieving your fitness goals with a treadmill is all about staying motivated and having a variety of preset programs. This model presents the user with 9 pre-programmed training workouts. These showcase everything this treadmill is capable of and allows the user to achieve their full fitness potential.

The 9 preset programs, range from a low-intensity walk to a high-intensity run, automatically adjusting the speed of the treadmill, focusing on aerobic, weight loss, or performance goals. The treadmill also comes with two heart rate workouts, which keeps the heart rate at either 65% or 80% of the maximum heart rate, and a fitness test.
… LED display

The scrolling LED display on the Professional Series 3500 shows the speed, time, pace, segment time, distance, calories/fat calories, pulse while a 8 x 30 LED matrix displays your workout graphically.

… cardio grip monitor

A “cardio grip” heart rate monitor allows you to get a quick heart rate reading. Heart-rate training makes your workout more effective. Working out in your “target heart-rate zone” you can get a more effective workout so that you can burn fat, improve your cardiovascular health and promote athletic performance.

This model also adds the convenience of “wireless heart rate” telemetry so that you continually monitor your heart rate without having to make contact with the hand grip sensors.
… running deck

The design and quality of the the deck can radically alter the overall performance of the treadmill. The deck on the Series 3500 with a 350 lb weight capacity has the strength and durability you should expect from a commercial grade treadmill.

Additionally this deck is reversible which means, if in a few years the deck is showing wear, you can flip it over and it will look and work as if it is brand new.
… warranty cover

The NordicTrack Professional Series 3500 is underwritten by a warranty that covers the motor for life. In addition the warranty also covers all other parts for 3 yrs and 1 year labor.
