Looking for the best Nordic Track Treadmills for 2016? There’s no question that Nordictrack puts out a number of highly rated treadmills.
A lot of their models earn “Best Buy” awards every single year. And they’re always coming out with new treadmills with the latest upgrades, technology and construction.
But this can be confusing if you’re looking for the best Nordic track treadmill. Stores often carry old models and how do you know if you’re getting the latest technology – or the best value for your money?
This article will go over what I think are 3 of the Best Nordic Track treadmills for 2016 – with the pros and cons of each.
This is one of the best runner-friendly treadmill values on the market. It has earned several “Best Buy” awards over the years. And Nordic track usually updates the 1750 for the new year with even better technology.
For example, a year ago they started adding a full color, touch-screen web browser to the 1750. So you can surf the net or read your emails as you walk.
And the 1750 is the most affordable treadmill in their “Commercial Treadmill” series. These are machines that are built to be tougher with stronger motors, sturdier decks and longer treadbelts.
Basically these are treadmills that are built for runners (because runners take more of a toll on their treadmills).
The 1750 also lets you customize your workout with the adjustable cushioning option – something you don’t often find at this price point. For more cushioning protection, you turn the cushioning up. Or for a more road-like feel you just turn the cushioning down.
To further add in some workout challenge you get up to 15% incline and even 3% decline. And Nordictrack has also put an easily adjustable tablet holder above the console. So you can watch movies or Netflix as you walk.
If you’re a runner – but you don’t want to spend a fortune on a treadmill, the Commercial 1750 is definitely worth considering.
This is also a very popular Nordic track treadmill – and one of their best sellers year after year. Like the 1750, Nordic track upgrades the 990 model every year.
And the 2016 model is definitely worth the wait. Instead of the dual color console that was on the 2015 model, Nordic track has added a full color console – with web browser.
And for a treadmill under $1000 to have a full color web browser is pretty much unheard of in this market where margins are extremely tight.
The 990 treadmill doesn’t have the tougher construction and higher end motor of the 1750 treadmill. But it does give you some great basics that walkers will love – like a respectable 3.0 HP motor and long 60 inch belt.
There’s also a hand grip heart rate monitor and a console fan to keep you cool. Overall this is a strong treadmill for walkers and occasional runners.
The X9 incline trainer is similar to a treadmill – but you get inclines of up to 40% (instead of 15%). This has the advantage of helping you burn calories very fast.
In fact, according to the manufacturer, you can burn up to 5 times more calories on the X9 than a regular treadmill (while walking on the incline).
The X9 comes in just under $2000 and is also built to withstand pretty heavy use with a 3.0 HP motor, 2.5 inch rollers and extra long 60 inch belt.
Plus it gives you an even deeper decline than the 1750 above – up to 6%. And for entertainment you also get a slightly larger web browser to surf the net as you walk.
Overall if you’re looking for a treadmill that can help you lose weight faster than standard machines, the X9 is a great option.
So those are 3 of the best Nordic track treadmills for 2016. No matter what you decide to do, remember to take your time and listen to your body when working out. Give yourself time to get in shape – and enjoy your treadmill!
