Looking for a Nordictrack treadmill without iFit?
While iFit Coach is a cool new training and coaching program that many people love – others just want a standard treadmill without the iFit Coach.
However, with Nordictrack adding iFit to pretty much every new treadmill these days, it can be hard to find a treadmill without iFit.
Not to worry.
This post will give you some of your current options if you’re looking for a Nordictrack without iFit – along with where you can find more information about each option.
Keep in mind that you can always buy any Nordictrack treadmill with iFit and enjoy the Free 1-year subscription. Then just choose not to renew your subscription.
You’ll still be able to use the treadmill including some built-in workouts (just not the iFit scenery and tracking options).
According to the official manufacturer’s website, you can still easily use the treadmill in manual mode without iFit:
“Simply push the Start button on your machine to begin a manual workout. You’ll be able to manually adjust your settings and your screen will display an oval racetrack as you workout.”
If you want to learn more about bypassing iFit, you can also go directly to the Manufacturer’s site and select the treadmill you want. Scroll all the way down and click on “iFit FAQs” to find out more on how to bypass iFit.
You’ll also see how to cancel your iFit subscription so you don’t get billed for it after the free year is up.
Nordictrack Treadmills Without iFit
#1 Nordictrack Treadmill Desk Platinum
The Nordictrack treadmill desk Platinum is the premium desk treadmill in Nordictrack’s lineup. And it’s very similar to your standard home treadmill.
Plus it also adds a desk top which you can use as a workstation – or just as an area to hold your laptop, computer or tablet as you walk.
While it’s iFit compatible – you don’t get the free iFit subscription included with this model (so you don’t have to worry about cancelling the subscription after your free year is up).
You get up to 10% power incline with this model plus an extra long 60-inch belt. Plus it currently comes in at a very affordable price of $1399 with Free Shipping here.
Also, the desktop is easily adjustable vertically (and horizontally) so that you can find the most comfortable fit for your height.
The LCD console windows showing your workout stats are located on the right side below the desk area. So the console windows are not covered up by anything you may have on the desktop.
While it may be a little unconventional, if you’re looking for a treadmill without iFit that can also double as a walking workstation, this one is a great option.
#2 Proform CoachLink T9.0 Treadmill
Nordictrack is owned by ICON Health and Fitness – who also own Proform. So while this treadmill isn’t necessarily a “Nordictrack”, it’s made by the same company and has many of the same features.
Plus – while it does have the option to add iFit Coach, it is not included with the machine. So, just like with the Desk Treadmill Platinum model above – you don’t have to cancel the subscription after your free year is up.
The CoachLink T9.0 is a standard home treadmill, coming in at a very affordable price of $999 with Free Shipping here. (You’ll find it by scrolling to the bottom of the page – since it’s a limited-run model).
It gives you a large, bright feedback console, decent 2.6 HP motor, 55-inch running deck and a very handy tablet holder above the console. So you can attach your tablet and watch Netflix or YouTube as you run.
It also folds up easily with shock-assist to save the strain on your back.
If you want a simple, affordable treadmill with some solid basics (without iFit) it’s worth checking out.
#3 Bowflex BXT 216 Treadmill
I know this is not a Nordictrack – but I thought I’d throw it in here as it is a very viable option if you want a quality, runner-friendly treadmill.
Bowflex is more known these days for their Max Trainers and their Treadclimbers. But most people don’t realize that they’ve been quietly making high-quality home treadmills for the past 5 years.
While these treadmills aren’t as “fancy” console-wise as the Nordictrack treadmills, they do offer you excellent construction, strong decks and advanced cushioning – similar to Nordictrack Commercial series models.
The BXT 216 treadmill is the premium model in the series coming in around $1899 with Free Shipping here.
It gives you a bright, easy-to-read console, plenty of built-in workouts, up to 15% incline and even a tablet/phone holder so you can add some entertainment to your workouts.
Plus, you can also track and sync your workouts with the Free Bowflex App to see how far you’ve come over time.
While it doesn’t get a lot of press, if you want a heavier-duty, runner-friendly treadmill without iFit (and you don’t care about the Nordictrack name), this one is a fantastic option.
Bonus Option #4 Search for Older Models in Stores
If you really want a Nordictrack treadmill without iFit, you may still be able to find a few older models kicking around in stores. They will still be “iFit compatible” – but will not come with the Free 1 year subscription to iFit.
Look for a dual-color console like the one pictured below:
One drawback with this is that you’ll be paying full price for an older, fairly out-of-date treadmill. But if you really don’t like the iFit-included option then it’s definitely something to consider.
So those are currently some options for a Nordictrack treadmill without iFit.
I’ve spoken to a contact at Nordictrack and they are aware that not everyone wants the free subscription to iFit treadmills. So my guess is that they will probably be coming out with some non-iFit treadmills pretty soon. (However, that’s just my guess. Since I don’t work for Nordictrack, I can’t say for sure).
However I’ll be monitoring the situation and if any new, non-iFit treadmills come out, I’ll try to list these models on this page for you.
