3 Great Alternatives to the Nordictrack 1750 Treadmill
Looking for a Nordictrack 1750 alternative?
While the Nordictrack Commercial 1750 treadmill is one of the best-selling models in its price class, some people are looking for an alternative.
So what can you do?
Are there similar options out there?
The good news is that yes – there are some great options you can consider.
This post will give you 3 of your best options, with short reviews of each, along with links to where you can read more about them.
So let’s dive in to some of your best alternatives to the Nordictrack 1750:
Nordictrack 1750 Alternatives:
This is one of the best alternatives to the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill. Because ICON owns both the Nordictrack and Proform brands, these treadmills look remarkably similar to each other – with a lot of the same features.
The Proform Pro 5000 also runs around the same price – $1599 with Free Shipping here. It also gives you the full color, touch-screen 7 inch console and the extra wide 22 inch belt.
The construction is quite similar with the extra large 2.5 inch rollers used (which help reduce static and prolong the life of your treadmill) and a sleek console with one-touch speed/incline buttons.
Plus it also comes iFit compatible. With iFit you can run trails all over the world, watch daily workout videos and track everything from your daily workouts to your sleep habits.
An extra bonus?
You actually get a stronger motor with the Proform 5000 treadmill – 4.0 HP vs 3.6 HP on the Nordictrack 1750.
You also get the decline option as well with this model. Decline is a great way to rest after those long, intense intervals.
Plus if you use the link below, you can also get a Free 1 year iFit coach membership – so you can try out all the new workout videos, run trails all over the world from Paris to Hawaii and more!
The Bowflex BXT 116 treadmill is again, very similar in price to the Nordictrack 1750 – coming in around $1499 (Click here for a special coupon code from the Manufacturer).
Like the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill, it’s large, sturdy and folding. I recently got to try this out and was surprised at just how strong and sturdy it was (Bowflex is known more for their Treadclimber than their treadmills).
It’s pretty much built like a truck – and is also pulling in a lot of very positive user reviews.
While it doesn’t have the full-color touch-screen console that the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill has, it does have an easy-to-read, backlit console along with an iPod dock and speakers.
Plus it has a shelf to hold your tablet. And Bowflex has partnered with RunSocial – which is an app that also allows you to run trails all over the world. It’s similar to iFit in this way (although you’ll notice from the pic below that the graphics are not nearly as good).
So you can in theory, use your tablet and Runsocial to give you a similar kind of “virtual reality” training experience that iFit gives you the Nordictrack 1750.
You can also use the free Bowflex Results app to track your training, calories burned, miles covered and more – again similar to iFit.
The main downside here is that the Bowflex 116 treadmill doesn’t give you the decline you get with the 1750 treadmill.
But overall it’s an excellent alternative to the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill. With all the great reviews – I think it’s poised to do extremely well this year.
While Horizon tends to be known more for starter treadmills, they do make a higher end class of treadmill called their Elite series.
The T7 is a pretty good alternative to the Nordictrack 1750 – coming in around the same price of $1599 with Free Shipping here.
Horizon updated the T7 this year and added a stronger 3.0 HP motor, which is excellent. It also has a larger 20 x 60 inch belt giving you extra room to stretch out.
While you don’t get the full-color, touch-screen console that the Nordictrack 1750 has, the console on the T7 treadmill is backlit and easy-to-read.
You can also track your workouts and set goals with the free Viafit app on your phone – which is similar the tracking portion of iFit on the 1750.
While this isn’t my favorite Nordictrack 1750 alternative, it is a decent option. And if you love the Horizon name, you’ll probably be pretty happy with it.
