Are NordicTrack Treadmills a Good Value?
I've personally visited the NordicTrack production facilities and corporate headquarters on several occasions, and the entire operation is impressive. NordicTrack is one of the most recognized names in treadmills. They are part of Icon Fitness, which is the largest fitness equipment company in the world. They are not only the largest, they are the largest by a huge margin.
They also own ProForm and a number of other popular fitness equipment brands. Because of the vast resources they have at their deposal, they are able to build treadmills for less, and in the process give you some of the best value for your money. In general, their treadmills will out spec the competition with larger motors, longer decks and larger rollers. It should also be noted that NordicTrack treadmills are built in the U.S.A., although the parts come from China.
In addition to offering more for less, the company commits significant resources to research and development. Consequently, you will find some very innovative technology on NordicTrack treadmills. For example, all NordicTrack treadmills include iFit Live.
This motivational technology allows your treadmill to communicate with the Internet. With iFit Live you can get personalized 8-week progressive workouts with audio coaching downloaded onto your treadmill. Your daily stats are recorded to your personal online account. Furthermore, you can map routes on Google Maps and the treadmill will simulate the terrain with the incline feature. With the use of a laptop, an iPad or smart phone you can visualize your progress with Google Maps.
If there are any issues with NordicTrack, it would be their customer service. Occasionally, they get overwhelmed with the volume of sales and service inquiries. Consequently, I have had some customers complain about their difficultly getting through. Although those situations are rare.
As someone who has worked in the fitness equipment industry for a number of years, I am quite comfortable recommending NordicTrack treadmills for their overall value. You can learn more at NordicTrack Treadmill reviews and ratings.
