Good points

  • Upgraded from the popular selling Nordictrack A2550
  • Supports the new iFit Live technology
  • Reasonable retail price and is a pretty good bargain when it sells for less than retail (i.e when it’s on sale)
  • Above average weight capacity suggesting it’s well built piece of machinery

Bad points

  • On paper, the PRO version is not that much of an improvement over the non Pro version
  • iFit live requires separate purchase which would cost another $400

Comments

  • Unlike the Nordictrack A2550 Pro where it was actually the “Pro” version of the Nordictrack A2550, the Nordictrack A2750 Pro does not actually have a “non pro” version as far as we’re aware of. In many ways, these two treadmills are very similar with the Nordictrack A2750 Pro coming up ahead in a few small categories with the main improvements being  more workout programs,a larger belt which is in turn supported by a more powerful treadmill motor. However, for most people, we would think that neither of these improvements are truly necessary unless you’re particularly tall and thus need the extra stride room. Thus, it’s better to stick with the slightly more affordable but similarly built A2550 Pro. At $999, the A2750 Pro is an above average deal and if you ever see it at $799, it would truly be an awesome deal.
