… drive motor

This treadmill utilizes a 3.0 CHP DurX Commercial Drive Motor. The motor itself uses preventative engineering in order to keep you safer. This includes the use of high-grade wiring and insulation ratings, a thermal cut-off switch and a stringent UL certification process.

The DurX Commercial Pro Motor is also dynamically spin-balanced and rigorously tested for matchless performance in vibration and noise, making it both smooth and quiet in operation.

... workout programs

This treadmill has a total of 32 pre-programmed training workouts with each program having been designed by a certified personal trainer.

The programs automatically adjust the incline and speed of your treadmill during the course of your workout. Each workout program focuses on an aerobic, weight loss or performance goal.

... iFIT capability

This treadmill is iFIT capable. In essence this is a wireless internet connection to the treadmill, but there is a lot more to this technology than that. iFIT adds extra functionality, entertains and engages your interest by opening up a whole new set of workout experiences.

Using the data provided by Google Maps, iFIT allows the user to recreate any route they choose with the treadmill's computer automatically adjusting the incline up and down in order to simulate the actual terrain. You have the choice of selecting a pre-planned program or draw a map anywhere on the globe.

iFIT also gives you the opportunity to train with fitness coach Jillian Michaels. If you are trying to burn calories and lose weight Jillian's voice will spur you on, offering encouragement every step of the way!

Another benefit of iFIT is that new workouts are automatically downloaded to the treadmill every day during an 8-week program. These workouts take control of the treadmill, automatically adjusting the speed and incline to provide new challenges to keep you motivated.

Other features include the ability to track your nutrition and other activities, train for a race, lose weight or maintain a healthy lifestyle with the online food and activity log available at You can even race against other iFITmembers and compare your time with people from around the world!

It should be noted that this feature requires an internat connection, the iFIT module and memebership to iFIT that is available as an optional extra.

... backlit display

The console has a display that is equipped with an oversized (7inch), easy-to-read backlit display that tracks all your important workout data including speed, time, distance, pulse and calories burned. Being able to access this data on the fly provides valuable feedback and keeps you engaged in the workout.

... racetrack mimic

In addition to providing the essential workout data the consol mounted display also shows a depiction of a quarter mile race track so that you have a graphical representation of your progress during your workout.

… speed control

The treadmill comes equipped with 1-Touch control. Instead of tediously scrolling through options, the 1-Touch system allows you to instantly change the speed of the treadmill between 0-12 MPH with the single touch of a button. You can decrease your speed immediately when you need a rest, or increase it instantly for a challenging workout.

… incline control

The treadmill also uses the 1-Touch control technology in order to change the incline with the single touch of a button instead of tediously scrolling through options as you would have to do with traditional incline controls. The incline can be adjusted between 0 deg. up to 15 deg. of grade.

... handlebar controls

Having the ability to quickly and easily alter the speed and incline of your treadmill without any fuss or drama is important if you want to feel in control of your workout.

This model has speed and incline buttons located at the ends of the handlebars where they can be accessed without having to lean forward to reach the buttons on the control console.

NordicTrack C900 Pro Controls

…wireless heart rate monitor

The treadmill is equipped with a Club-Design CardioGrip heart rate monitor. This helps you to make the most out of every workout by monitoring your heart rate via sensors that are built into the handlebars.

Monitoring your heart rate ensures that you're always in the right training zone for your goals. You can get a more effective workout, burn more fat, and improve your cardiovascular health.

The "QuadFlex" cushioning system employed on this treadmill reduces impact on your joints with an air-based, shock cushioning system on the extra-long tread belt. With four points of cushioning, you get four times the protection and four times the comfort.

... iPOD connection

This model features a universal iPod dock. You can enjoy your workout while you play your favorite music through the built-in sound system. The Compatible Music Port allows you to plug in your iPOD, or MP3 Player and play your music through the Intermix Acoustics 3.0 sound sound system, featuring 3in. high-excursion drivers.

Customer Reviews

I have used many different treadmills over the years, from the YMCA to high end fitness gyms. I am 45 years old and consider my self is good shape. For the money, The C900 PRO is excellent. It has all the bells and whistles one expects from this price range, and the accessories are in the top end regarding performance. It is easy to use, comfortable and very STURDY. By far the best attribute is the flexibility of the platform. IF you have a bad back or bad knees, THIS IS THE MACHINE FOR YOU! I am 100 % pleased with my purchase. The Platinum package I purchased came with two men that had never put the C900 PRO together. This is my only complaint. Enjoy !!!

This is my first treadmill purchase and so far it has exceeded my expectations. Customer service was excellent and very helpful and through in a free floor mat. This is an extremely sturdy treadmill and built very well and intended to last! Thanks Nordic Track.

Extremely happy with my purchase well worth the money spent!!! Me and my wife and kids use it about 3 to 4 times a week and couldn't be happier. Assembly is time consuming about 3 to 4 hours by myself but instructions are easy to follow. I decided to go with the curbside delivery but you will need help moving it into the room of your preference. I do not regret buying the C900 PRO.

The wireless heartrate monitor is a real plus. I especially like the 4 cushioning elements. It gives the platform more spring than the solid road, but I appreciate the added care to my joints. I recommend purchasing the in-home setup unless you are handy. I like the relatively quite motor. No more jogging outside for my wife an me!
