NordicTrack Commercial 1750 (2013) Treadmill Review (now available at stock)




There’s no denying that a lot of people all over the world are looking to become physically fit.  Of course, NordicTrack is a company which aims to provide people with the means to achieve their goals.  One can simply take advantage of the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 – 2013 edition for a great workout.

People often injure themselves whenever they use machines which are quite uncomfortable.  However, the Runners Flex Cushioning proves to be a valuable inclusion.  This way, users will experience reduced impact on their joints when training.

Most machines take up a lot of space in the room.  Because of this, users will be quite pleased to know about the SpaceSaver design.  This allows them to simply grab the machine, fold it up and keep it stored whenever they’re not making use of it during exercise sessions.

There’s also the CardioGrip heart rate monitor to check out.  This device is built right in the handlebars.  They’ll pick up the user’s heart rate while working out, ensuring proper health conditions.

Of course, the advantage of modern training machines is that they can receive updates from online.  The IFit compatible console allows users to receive updated video training, coaching tips from fitness instructors and event training. There’s also the inclusion of Google Maps-powered virtual terrains to run on.

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 – 2013 edition is certainly a machine that guarantees efficient results when used regularly.  This provides a full body workout that can allow people to develop tone and definition in their bodies.  For those looking for a really good workout, this is the machine to get.


Good Points

  • The 2013 Nordictrack Commercial 1750 is a slightly upgraded version of the 2012 model which is a good thing since the 2012 model received numerous best buys and recommendations
  • The main improvements over the 2012 model include the following: deck cushioning that is adjustable, 4 more workout programs, 25 added lbs to the max weight capacity, an iPad holder (see product pictures), and HD video workouts (which we’re not particularly fond of since it might make you dizzy to concentrate on the 7” screen and you might need to tilt your head slightly down affecting running posture.)
  • the decline, internet surfing, wireless heart rate monitor are extra features that are particularly hard to come by from competing brands though they have become more common in Nordictrack products since 2011
  • based on the paper specs alone, there is really very little to complain about

Bad Points

  • Similar to our review of the 2012 model, the weight of the machine is not specified. With an even higher max weight capacity of 400 lbs, we’re a bit concerned whether this number is justifiable
  • It seems for 2013, Nordictrack has done away with including a free 1 year iFit subscription. You’re now required to purchase an iFit subscription separately for $99

Verdict

Nordictrack has come out with improvements to their Commercial 1750 (aka C1750) unit two years in a row. Our thoughts on the 2013 Commercial 1750 are basically the same as last year’s model: impressive feature list but slightly questionable quality. Although it’s comforting to hear Nordictrack say they use commercial grade components, we still think that there is a gap between this model and truly commercial ones. However, we will say that I think in recent years, this gap has gotten smaller and will continue to do so in the future.

At the time of review (November 21st, 2012), the 2013 Nordictrack C1750 retails for $2999 and is not currently on sale. When the product does go on sale and we expect it will, you can expect it to sell for $1500 but don’t be surprised if Nordictrack shaves another $200 off during special holidays like Black Friday. ( We say this because the older 2012 model is currently selling for $1299 which is $200 less than the $1499 it sold for when we reviewed it last year.)
