This is as close to gym quality as you will get at home.

Easy to set up. The foot pads are comfortable and the stride length is perfect.

The heart rate seems to be fairly accurate as well. I used it while wearing my Polar heart rate monitor and it was spot on! This is important because if the heart rate is not accurate, neither is the calorie burn.

The ability to adjust the pads works great for me and my husband.

The only thing I would add is I wish it had a distance setting as an on-board workout. It’s only speed and calorie burn. A distance option would be nice.

I am able to lift it to a stand position and lower it by myself but I’m a fairly strong woman.

Overall, I’m very happy with it. 

I will be able to achieve the goals I have in mind at the pace I need.

After only a few weeks on Nordic track elliptical, I know my wife and my self will be getting our money’s worth and then some.

I am looking forward to seeing the results in the weeks to come.

This is an excellent machine which provides a great workout!

I was a little unsure when I read others’ comments about the weight of the flywheel, but it feels like a near-gym quality workout! And it’s very quiet.

The only thing I was disappointed by was the movability of the machine - the video makes it look easy to store on your own after a workout but it’s very heavy and the instruction manual even says it should only be moved and stored by two people.

I’ve moved it around a little on my own and even put it together on my own despite them recommending two people for that as well, but I was not able to lift the front of the machine into standing position to stow it without my husband.

I will be able to achieve the goals I have in mind at the pace I need.

After only a few weeks on Nordic track elliptical, I know my wife and my self will be getting our money’s worth and then some.

I am looking forward to seeing the results in the weeks to come.

My balance was bad and I need to build strength to stay ambulatory.

Had used an elliptical in PT so decided to order this.

At first I could barely get on or off and it was challenging for me. But now I just hop on and do 10-15 minutes with ease.

Can make it a real aerobic workout or can just concentrate on steady strength building.

It’s easy to adjust while underway.

I have come to love this machine and think it was a great investment.

I love my eliptical... it’s very sturdy and quiet.

The fan is not very powerful but other than that I really enjoy working out on it.

My wife was just sharing with me that she could shoot a commercial for Nordic Track as a full time mom and full time worker who needs something she could use at home to work out on.

We absolutely love this machine. Great workout.

After two weeks, we already see and feel results. Get it now!!!!
