“Do I Need to Buy iFit with the Nordictrack 1750 Treadmill?” (Updated 2019)

 

One of the questions I’m getting more and more from people on this blog is

 

Do I need to buy iFit with the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill?”

And up until a few years ago, no you did not.

iFit came as an add-on option. You could add it for a yearly subscription fee – or just leave it.

However over the 2017 Christmas holiday season Nordictrack made it mandatory to buy an iFit membership with the Nordictrack 1750 – a fact which many people (for obvious reasons) – did not like.

This is why you may see some older websites saying that you need to buy iFit – while some say that you don’t need to buy it. It’s confusing.

And frankly, while iFit itself is amazing – Nordictrack hasn’t done a great job on the messaging.

However they seemed to have learned from this mistake and now made it a lot better for you, the customer. So here’s the answer to the question:

 

“Do I Need to Buy iFit with the Nordictrack 1750?”

No – But You Can Try It For Free!

 

As of right now, if you buy the Nordictrack 1750 direct from the Manufacturer here, you will get a Free 1 year membership to iFit included.

So you can try out all the benefits of iFit Coach (see below for a few of them) and then make the decision yourself whether you want to renew the iFit membership next year or not. Completely up to you (and you still get a FREE year of iFit!)

Obviously, Nordictrack is hoping that you will renew the membership – but you don’t have to.

That leads to the next big question:

 

“Will the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill still work without an iFit Subscription?”

 

Yes – it will.

I got this straight from the tech team at Nordictrack.

According to them, the 1750 treadmill will still work as usual in Manual mode without the iFit subscription. This is the case with any Nordictrack treadmill as well – not just the 1750.

You’ll still be able to use a limited number of built-in workouts, see your workout stats, etc.

So hopefully that clears things up.

I’ll be monitoring the situation and will update this post if things change. Since I’m not a Nordictrack employee I don’t know for sure how long this Free iFit offer will last – that’s up to them.

(And as always, make sure to check the site you buy from for the most up-to-date information).

So now that you know how to get a Free 1 year subscription to iFit Coach – you’re probably wondering – what exactly do you get with iFit?

“What Do I Get with iFit Coach on the Nordictrack 1750?”

 

Basically iFit adds a whole new dimension to your training. It’s treadmill training at the next level – even better than most health club treadmills.

You can do everything from tracking your progress over time – to running trails all over the world and watching the scenery pass you by in the console screen for some virtual reality fun.

iFit also gives you new HD workout videos downloaded to your treadmill every day. You can train anywhere in the world from the Swiss Alps to Paris to Santorini.

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 HIIT workouts to stretching workouts.

In fact, with iFit you have access to over 12,000 workouts – yes that 12,000 workouts! You basically will never run out of things to do on this treadmill.

Want Help Reaching Your Fitness Goals?

One of the things I love about this new version of iFit is that you can use the iFit app to program in your daily goals (like a calorie or weight loss goal for example) and the program will monitor your daily activity, exercise and food intake throughout the day.

It will then adjust your workout or nutrition recommendations throughout your day to help you reach your goal! It’s like having your own personal trainer working for you every day (while you relax!)

    I’m in my mid 60s and my wife is in her early 60s, we are both over weight and we both like the Nordictrack 1750, and we want to do is walk at our own paces and not at what some fitness coach or pro says we should do, who does not know us. So my question is why can we not just buy the Nordictrack 1750 without the ifit? we’re sorry but that just doesn’t make since to us.

      Hi Art,

      Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. I’m sorry you’re disappointed. I’m not a Nordictrack employee so I can’t give you a definite answer as to why they now require you to get iFit with the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill. I’m a little confused as to why they would do this myself. I can certainly see where you’re coming from.

      There is good news however – you do have some very similar alternatives to the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill that do not require iFit. I wrote a blog post to address this which you can read at:

      I hope that helps and thank you again for your comments.

      NEW UPDATE: Nordictrack no longer requires you to buy iFit with purchase – they are actually including it with the treadmill for free (as of this writing). So you can try it for a year and then see if you like it. Then you can choose to renew iFit – or not. The treadmill works fine without iFit – so it’s only optional, not mandatory.

      Art and Sherrie, you are right. You should not NEED to buy ifit, but you have to for one year. Then you can cancel. But that one year will cost you $30/month.

      On the upside, ifit is pretty cool. You can still walk at your own pace and incline, but you’ll get to enjoy some great scenery from around the world. Cheaper than an airline ticket to travel, but still pricey.

    I just bought a nordictrack c700. I wanted to bypass iFit. Finally found a post on a blog that stated they could bypass the IFIT by holding the IFIT button for 20 seconds. I didn’t have an IFIT button so I held the bluetooth for 20 seconds and it worked. I’m now happily using my treadmill I bought without giving my cc info to IFIT.

      Thank you Frank!! Your tip on bypassing iFit is just what I needed! Now if I could only figure out how to take off the base covers on the legs!

    Press the hidden button under the iFit icon on any NordicTrack machine. A new message will appear. Then press and hold down the hidden button under the iFit icon for 10 seconds. Viola, your machine is unlocked. Your welcome.

    Hold iFit button or bluetooth button down for at least 10 seconds, maybe more. This should unlock new machines.
