Nordic Track X5 Incline Trainer

With an incredibly wide range of incline ranging from 0 to 40 deg. the NordicTrack Incline Trainer X3 Interactive will work virtually all the muscles in your legs, especially those used in hiking and climbing activities.

Complete with 9 built-in climbing workouts, iFIT Workout Card technology and a heavy-duty 2.0 motor this is a fully featured incline exercise trainer.

The trainer is powered by a 2.0 HP DurX Drive Motor. NordicTrack’s drive system sustains speeds of up to 10 MPH even at high inclines.

The 0-10 MPH One Touch Speed Control ensures that at the touch of a button, the equipment speeds up or slows down to the pace you’re looking for so you can focus on your fitness workout.

The 0% to 40% One Touch Power Incline can take you instantly to slopes of up to 40%. With the Power Incline, you can start out flat and simulate a climb as you warm up without interrupting your fitness workout.

The 300-lb. user weight capacity Deck ensures that you get all the strength and support you’d expect from this manufacturer. The heavy duty deck is designed to stand up to the toughest fitness workouts.

To help protect your joints from harmful impact, the trainer features DuraSoft cushioning. It combines a super-soft foam deck with impact isolators that support the deck above the frame.

The equipment has a total of 9 built in climbing workouts, but the number of workouts can be extended by purchasing iFIT workout cards.

The product comes with a Lifetime guarantee on the motor and frame, with 1 year of parts and in-home service.

Here are the main features:

Drive motor

The trainer utilizes a DurX 2.0 HP motor. This design of motor employs an axial fan that reduces noise as it cools internal components enhancing your workout environment and extending the motor’s life. You are able to exercise for longer periods of time, while maintaining a smooth, consistent operation.

Workout programs

Achieving your fitness goals with a tread climber is all about staying motivated and having a variety of preset programs. This trainer comes with 9 pre-programmed incline trainer workouts. These automatically adjust the incline and speed of your tread climber.

iFIT workout cards

The equipment is fitted with the latest iFIT Workout Card Technology. Each card is designed by a certified personal trainer and plugs directly into the tread climber’s console, automatically adjusting your speed and incline, while the voice of a personal trainer takes you through each workout. You can lose weight, feel great and improve performance with iFIT interactive workout card technology.

Impact cushioning

The trainer takes the shock out of running with “DuraSoft” cushioning. This cushioning system has been designed to reduce the impact on your ankles, knees and spine and to protect the important connective tissues within your ankles, knees and hip joints.

Pulse monitor

A club-design CardioGrip heart rate monitor is built into the trainer. 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.

Hi-altitude display

The equipment gives you the ability to show your workout in a 3-D presentation. You can view your workout at a distance, seeing its path wind up a virtual mountainside.

You have the facility to change angles to a different perspective or zoom in close enough to view an animated figure running up the trail with you. The display benefits the user with one of the most realistic incline training experience available.

The Grafixx display also monitors your essential workout data with information concerning your speed, time, distance, vertical feet, calories burned and calories/hour burned.

Speed adjustment

1-Touch control is used on this trainer. Instead of scrolling through options, the 1-Touch system allows you to instantly change the speed of the treadmill between 0-10 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 adjustment

1-Touch control technology is used in order to change the incline. This is done with a single touch of a button instead of scrolling through options as you would with traditional incline controls. The incline can be adjusted between 0 deg. up to 40 deg. of grade.

Workout fan

A “CoolAire” workout fan is mounted on the console. This directs a stream of air towards your your face and upper body. Just hit a button and you have low or high-speed fans to cool your body just when you need it most.

iPOD connection

You can enjoy your workout while listening to your favorite music through the built-in Interplay sound system. This is achieved by the universal iPOD connection system. Simply plug in, press play and listen to your favorite music while you exercise.
