Wondering about the Nordictrack 2450 treadmill dimensions and ceiling height requirements?
You’re not alone.
The Commercial 2450 treadmill is one of Nordictrack’s most popular premium treadmills.
And with the redesign this year – including a larger screen and more streamlined look, more and more people are interested in this model.
But will it fit in your home?
This post will show you the dimensions and also give you the ceiling height requirements on the Nordictrack 2450 Treadmill.
Please note, this is only for the newest version of the Nordictrack 2450 model and doesn’t apply to past – or future – models.
So let’s jump in:
Nordictrack 2450 Dimensions – Length, Width and Height
The dimensions on the Nordictrack Commercial 2450 are 78.5” L x 35.6” W x 65” H
The weight of the machine itself is 303 pounds.
All in all, it’s a large, fairly hefty treadmill. So it’s smart to know where you want to put it BEFORE it arrives.
Can you move it around?
Sure. And it does fold up with a locking mechanism on the deck and wheels on the bottom to assist you in moving it around.
But at this size and weight, it’s not something you want to do on a regular basis.
Question: How Much Ceiling Height Do I Need for the Nordictrack 2450 Treadmill?
Nordictrack advertised that they lowered the step-on height of the treadmill with the new update this year. But they don’t tell you exactly what this means for the ceiling height.
So, I went straight to the manufacturer and asked them.
Here’s the answer I received:
“It is about 11 inches off the ground but we recommend adding about 15 inches to your height to use the machine at max incline.”
So you’ll need to take your height – or the height of the tallest user in your home – and add on an extra 15 inches.
Then compare this to the ceiling height of the room where you’re planning to place the 2450 treadmill to see if it fits.
Fifteen inches is 1.25 feet. So let’s do the math.
If you’re 6 feet tall, you’ll need to add another 1.25 feet onto your height: 6 + 1.25 = 7.25 feet. So you need a ceiling height of at least 7.25 feet. (I would go with over 7.4 feet just to be safe.)
If you’re 5 foot 5 inches that’s a bit trickier. We have to convert that to feet first.
Five inches is about 0.42 feet. So technically someone who is 5 foot five inches is 5.42 feet tall.
Now add on another 1.25 feet to that: 5.42 + 1.25 = 6.67 feet.
So you’ll need a ceiling height of 6.67 feet. You could safely get away with a lower 7 foot ceiling in this case.
Here are some more calculations for you:
Someone who is 5 foot 7 inches needs a ceiling height of 5.58 + 1.25 = 6.83 feet
Someone who is 5 foot 9 inches needs a ceiling height of 5.75 + 1.25 = 7. feet
Someone who is 5 foot 11 inches needs a ceiling height of 5.92 + 1.25 = 7.17 feet
Someone who is 6 foot 2 inches needs a ceiling height of 6.17 + 1.25 = 7.42 feet
So I hope that clears things up on the questions about Nordictrack 2450 ceiling height requirements. Again, remember that this only applies to the newest 2450 treadmill model (seen below).
And if you have any doubts you should always check directly with the manufacturer before making any final decision.
