NordicTrack Z7 XI Treadmill Review

The NordicTrack Z7 XI Treadmill with 15 personal trainer workouts and iFIT workout card technology.

A central feature of this model is the iFIT Workout Card technology. These workout cards plug into the console of the Nordic Track Z7XI treadmill and automatically adjust the speed and incline, while the voice of a personal trainer takes you through each workout.

The machine has a 20″ x 55 ” tread belt that is powered by a 2.25 HP DurX commercial motor. The shock absorption is taken care of by the “ProSoft 3” adjustable cushioning system that employs a moveable isolator to enable you to customize the feel.

There are 15 Personal Trainer Workouts that automatically adjust the incline and speed of the treadmill, each focusing on an aerobic, weight loss or performance goals.

The console incorporates a Hi-Resolution Grafixx display that animates your screen giving you more accurate, less machine-like readings. The console also contains a workout cooling fan and a sound system that can be hooked up to an iPOD or other MP3 player.

The equipment comes with a lifetime guarantee on the frame, 25 yrs on the motor and 1 year of parts and in-home service.

Here are the main features:

Drive unit

The motive power for the ‘mill is provided by a Mach Z 2.25 HP Motor. This is a commercial grade motor that uses direct cooling, a self-cooling process that extends the motor’s life and allows you to exercise for longer periods of time. The Mach Z is also spin-balanced, making it both smooth and quiet in operation.

Workout programs

The user is able to benefit from 15 pre-programmed training workouts which have been designed by a personal trainer. These automatically adjust the incline and speed of your treadmill, each focusing on an aerobic, weight loss or performance goals.

iFIT workout card

Each card is designed by a certified personal trainer and plugs directly into the treadmill’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.

Hi-resolution display

The control console features a Hi-Resolution Grafixx display. The display is back light that animates the screen and results in more accurate but less mechanistic like readings.

Adjustable cushioning

The running deck is supported by “ProSoft 3” cushioning. This is an adjustable cushioning system and by adjusting the slider at the base of the treadmill allows the user to customize the feel of the running surface to the user’s personal preference.

Heart rate monitor

A heart rate monitor 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.

… speed control

This model is fitted with “1-Touch” speed control. Instead of having to scroll through various 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 control

The “1-Touch” control technology is also used in order to change the incline with the single touch of a button. The incline can be adjusted between 0 deg. up to 12 deg. of grade.

Workout cooling fan

An “AutoBreeze” workout fan is mounted into the control console. This fan is very quiet in operation and automatically changes airflow to match your workout speed. But, if you prefer a definite setting, just select low, medium or high. This innovative technology will help you find the right temperature so you can stay cool and comfortable during your workout.

iPOD connection

The control console includes an “Interplay” music system with a universal iPOD dock. This allows you to plug in your iPOD or any other MP3 Player and listen to your favorite music through the Interplay music system. Your iPOD can rest on the console shelf where it is within easy reach and leaves the controls right at your fingertips. Simply plug in, press play and listen to your favorite music while you exercise.

Foldaway feature

Finding the room to store an exercise treadmill can be a problem. This model goes some way to addressing this issue with it’s “space saver” technology. This facility allows you to fold the treadmill into an upright position after your workout where it will then occupy a lot smaller floor area.
