One of the questions I’m getting more and more every day from treadmill shoppers is “Do I need to buy iFit with the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill?”
And up until this point in time, no you did not. iFit came as an add-on option.
That’s why you might find some older reviews on this site – or other blogs – that say iFit is an option.
However right now, a yearly iFit subscription is required if you want to buy the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill (or any other Nordictrack treadmill above $1299). And that’s not just my guess – that comes straight from Nordictrack.
Not to worry – if you don’t want to buy iFit, there are some great Nordictrack 1750 alternatives which you can read about here.
You also have the option to get iFit with your treadmill for the year – and simply not renew your subscription if you don’t like it next year. (The treadmill will work fine without iFit).
What are the benefits of iFit Coach on the Nordictrack 1750?
iFit used to come in two versions – iFit Coach and iFit Coach Plus. However these have been streamlined and now there’s only one.
This latest version of iFit coach has ALL the bells and whistles you could ever want for your treadmill.
For example, you get a new HD workout videos downloaded to your treadmill every day. You can train anywhere in the world from the Swiss Alps to Santorini, Greece. Here’s a video of some of the workouts you’ll get with iFit Coach:
You also get Livestream fitness classes and can do anything from yoga workouts to stretching workouts.
Plus if you opt for the iFit yearly membership (instead of the monthly), you’ll also get a Free iFit wearable and even adjustable handweights with stand, which is very cool.
So I hope that clears things up a bit.
I’m a bit divided on this decision from Nordictrack. On the one hand I can see how they’re offering a lot of value. And a lot of people are using iFit Coach to basically replace their gym memberships (it’s around $39 a month).
On the other hand, not everyone wants iFit with their treadmill.
If that’s you, don’t worry. I’ve written this post here that lists 3 of the best Nordictrack 1750 treadmill alternatives . These treadmills that are very similar to the 1750 model but they don’t come with the iFit requirement.
