If you’re eagerly awaiting the new 2017 models from Nordictrack, wondering what fresh new features you’ll find (ok, maybe that’s just me) I guarantee that you won’t be expecting this.
Nordictrack is introducing a new Incline Trainer for 2017 – the X22i.
And the only word is…wow.
(If you want a little more than that you can read the full review here)
The X22i keeps a lot of what makes incline trainers popular: the 40% incline and the 6% decline. There’s also the extra long belt and tons of built-in workouts (44 to be exact).
But it blows the other incline treadmills out of the water with the other features:
Massive New 22 inch HD Touch-Screen Console
This is like having a large touch-screen computer/TV in your console. It works with the iFit Coach to show you real life running scenes from Paris to Hawaii and everything in between.
And you can easily see your workout stats with a swipe of your finger.
Take Live Fitness Classes From Your Treadmill
This is just jaw-droppingly cool. You can participate in daily fitness classes led by a professional instructor – with other iFit coach subscribers as well. You see everything on your screen as the instructor takes you through your workout.
iFit Coach Plus Personal Training
With iFit Coach Plus on this trainer, it’s like you have your own personal trainer helping you achieve your goals.
You choose from different kinds of workouts to try – from cardio to yoga. There are also different personal trainers to lead you through different workouts, each with their own unique teaching style.
You’ll also get custom meal plans based on your fitness goals, as well as a free wearable to track your activity and sleep patterns.
Add some strength training to your workout with the adjustable dumbbells (there’s also a stand to store them on beside your treadmill.)
The dumbbells can be easily switched between 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, and 12.5 pounds. So you can start at 2.5 pounds if you’re new to upper body training and work up from there.
The iFit coach will also give you ideas and suggestions on which exercises to do with the dumbbells.
Basically the Nordictrack X22i is the ultimate incline trainer. It may be overkill if you’re looking for a simple treadmill – but if you want the best incline trainer treadmill with the addition of the personal trainer and customized workout option, this is one to consider.
They are just doing pre orders now for January but I’m guessing this will sell out pretty quickly in the new year.
