Trainer Review

The X11i incline trainer is the flagship model in the range. It presents the user with a wide range of inclines that will work virtually all the muscles in your legs, especially those used in hiking and climbing.

This trainer has many hi tech features including a color, touch screen, display with built in web browser. This allows the user to check their email, surf the web or keep up with their social networking activities.

The integration of iFIT technology using Google Maps allows the user to recreate any route in the world in addition to downloading additional workouts and training with Jillian Michaels!

To help protect your joints from harmful impact, the trainer features NordicTrack's legendary "Reflex" cushioning. Reflex cushioning suspends nearly the entire length of the deck between two isolators, giving it the ability to absorb more impact.

A 10" full color, touch screen incorporates a web browser. This enables the user to connect to their home's wireless internet network and check their email, surf the web or keep up to date with their social networking activities.

Just like a normal display screen the user can check their workout data, but the user is able to navigate through menus and pull up information such as speed, time, distance, incline, decline, calories burned, pulse with just a swipe of the finger.

... workout programs

Achieving your fitness goals with an incline trainer requires motivation and having a variety of preset programs. This model scores here with 44 in-built workout programs.

Each one of these have been designed by a certified personal trainer and automatically adjust the incline and speed of the machine. The workouts focus on calorie-burning, incline, speed or intensity goals.

... workout cooling fans

Dual "AutoBreeze" workout fans are mounted into the console. These are quiet in operation and automatically change the airflow to match your workout speed.

If you prefer, you can select one of several fixed speed settings. This innovative technology will help you find the right temperature so you can stay cool and comfortable during your workout.

… premium cushioning

This trainer takes the shock out of running with "Reflex" cushioning. This specially developed cushioning increases workout comfort, while keeping your joints protected from the rigors of exercise.

Most cushioning systems use a single isolator in the middle of the deck to absorb impact. The Reflex cushioning system, however, suspends nearly the whole of the deck between two isolators. This allows it to absorb more impact at heel-strike, while maintaining stability at toe-off.

... sound system

The model features the latest, Intermix Acoustics 3.0 sound system with two 3" speakers that deliver full, rich sound.

The user simply plugs their iPOD or any other MP3 player into the music port in order to listen to their favorite music during the workout.

… wireless heart rate monitor

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.

This model is equipped with a dual grip "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.

In addition to the CardioGrip sensors this model is also fitted with wireless heart rate monitoring. By wearing the supplied wireless chest strap the user is able to monitor their heart rate continually during their workout without having to hold the hand grips.

... tablet computer holder

Many people like to have access to apps stored on their tablet computers during their workout session and there is provision on this trainer to hold a tablet securely at a comfortable viewing angle.

Positioned at eye-level, immediately above the display is a strong removable bracket designed to hold your tablet computer.

I researched treadmills for a long time before buying the x11i. Quite frankly some of the reviews made me hesitate, and now that I have the machine, I don't understand them.

It was a snap to put together. You need two people to make it easy, and it takes 30 minutes. Very high quality parts and design. Looks like it will last a long time.

Very nice screen and easy connect to the internet. Pre-loaded workouts are fine or you can make up your own.

I really like this machine, and the folks at NordicTrack answered all my questions and were easy to work with.

Completely happy with my purchase and incline training is the way to go!

Wish I would have purchased this a lot sooner!
