Nordic Track Elite 2900 Treadmill Review

The Nordic Track Elite 2900 Treadmill with iFIT workout card technology.

This is a mid-priced machine that has been beautifully engineered. The Nordic Track Elite 2900 sports many innovative features including iFIT Workout Cards that allows you to plug-in the new line of workouts instead of using wires or CD’s as before.

The treadmill is powered by a 3.5 CHP commercial-grade motor utilizing a built-in fan that cools internal-motor components, reducing the wear and tear on your machine and extending its life.

Here is a run down of the main features:

Drive unit

The treadmill has a powerful commercial-grade drive system which utilizes a built-in fan that cools internal-motor components, reducing the wear and tear on your machine and extending its life. The motor provides more than enough horsepower for runners or walkers.

Speed adjustment

The ZipSpeed control gives you the ability to instantly change your speed by sliding your finger to your desired setting instead of having to scroll through complicated options on a display. You can adjust your speed from 0 to 12 mph in 1 mph increments.

Incline adjustment

The treadmill will allow you to adjust the incline between the range of 0 – 12% in 1% increments. Like ZipSpeed, the useful ZipIncline system allows you to change the incline of the treadmill by quickly sliding your finger to your desired incline setting.

Shock absorption

The maker’s claim that the cushioning on this model can reduce impact on your joints by up to 28%, as compared to road running. This design of absorption system delivers the perfect balance of exercise comfort and joint protection. 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. Durable isolator cushioning absorbs impact as your foot makes contact with the tread belt, resulting in added protection and workout comfort.

Heart rate monitor

The CardioGrip monitor gives you a quick and accurate heart rate reading. You simply grip the monitor and seconds later you have an accurate reading of your heart rate.

Display screen

This model features a Grafixx High-Res Display. This is a large, easy-to-read animated graphics display that utilizes motion captured male & female models. This lets you watch yourself walk, jog, or run. It also monitors your speed, time, pace, distance, incline, calories burned, carbs burned and pulse.

iFIT workout card

This model employs iFIT workout card technology. Each card is designed by a certified personal trainer and plugs directly into the treadmill’s console, automatically adjusting your speed and incline, for an amazing, result-specific workout. The voice of the personal trainer talks to you through the speakers, guiding you through your workout.

Workout programs

In order to keep motivated during your fitness workout it is important to introduce variety into your training regime. This model has twenty one workouts from which to choose from to help keep your interest.

Workout intensity meter

This model comes with a built in “workout intensity meter”. This useful feature takes the form of a light-line that glows from blue to red as it measures your workout intensity, alerting you when you need to exercise a little harder or softer to meet your goals.

Check your mileage

Odometer with MyMiles Tracker tracks the total number of miles traveled over time, while the odometer tracks your current workout distance. Your MyMiles can be reset at any time.

Carb counter

If you are interested in counting carbs this model provides you with a carb counter that accurately counts the grams of carbs you burn and presents the figure on an easy-to-read display. Automatically keep track of the carbs you burn during exercise.

Workout cooling fan

The equipment is fitted with an “AutoBreeze” fan mounted into the console. There are four fan settings allow you to choose between low, medium, high or Auto. The “AutoBreeze” fan automatically changes the airflow to match the speed of your exercise equipment.

More room to run

The model incorporates a large 20″ x 60″ running belt. You will appreciate the advantages of this larger running space when you come to use the treadmill. The belt is constructed from a heavy-duty, two-ply commercial-grade tread and is specifically designed for quiet operation.

User weight

The maximum user weight of this model is 350lbs. In order to prevent early failure of the treadmill it is important that any users of it do not exceed this weight limit.

Foldaway design

This is a SpaceSaver design with AirLight Lift Assist. This patented, revolutionary design allows your treadmill to fold vertically for storage. To make things even easier, the AirLight uses two powerful shocks that assist you in lowering the treadmill and help fold the machine up for storage with one easy push.

Warranty details

The Nordic Track Elite 2900 folding treadmill is backed with a one years warranty on parts and one year of in-home service at no additional charge.
