This will be my second treadmill from NordicTrack. The first one I had for many years and had no problems with it so I decided to purchase another one.
I absolutely love the new one. It has so many features and I love the built-in fan.
The motor is quiet so I don’t disturb anyone with my early morning workouts.
The incline feature is pretty cool. If you don’t feel like running, you can use the feature and still get a pretty good workout.
This machine delivers everything it promises.
It has great shock absorption so my knees never feel the strain and I love the fact that I can run downhill.
So far so good. Could not beat the price of there sale at the time. 18 month same as cash. What a deal. and when it was delivered box and machine in perfect condition.
Now as for my motivation that’s another story.
Thank you NordicTrack you have given my wife and I an opportunity to take our lives back. I will add reviews on performance as I use the machine.
Overall seems great.
Looks great. Runs great! Love it every time I use it!
I like the way it is designed. The preprograms seem to be for someone much advanced. So far I have only used the manual mode.
I have had back surgery and the design is better for me than my previous treadmill.
I like the layout of the counsel as it is easy to use even when jogging.
I really like the treadmill. I have not had a chance to use the IFit program but am looking forward to it.
The treadmill is very quiet. Nice quality, well built machine.
I wanted a treadmill that had incline and decline. A lot do not have decline.
I also wanted one with a fan. Again a lot do not have this feature.
I wish the screen was more basic. Some of us don’t care about ipods, ect...
Start and stop, incline and decline and the fan is all that I was looking for and this treadmill carried all those items.
