Good Points: If you think it costs an arm and a leg to buy a semi decent treadmill, you might be surprised that the Nordictrack T5.5 can sell for as low as during promotional periods 325 weight capacity is considered quite high for a treadmill around the price mark (we would recommend users up to 275 lbs use this treadmill to be on the conservative side) 20 workout programs is a decent number and would rival many treadmills from competing brands that are or more Compatible with iFit Live so if you’re willing to invest another, you can experience this new technology from Nordictrack.

Bad Points: Warranty is only average at 1 year parts and labor With a short product warranty and an undisclosed product weight, it would be difficult for us to recommend this treadmill to users unless they only intend on doing light to moderating training Verdict: It’s not necessary to invest a whole lot of money on a treadmill if you plan mainly to walk or jog. In fact, if your current situation doesn’t allow you to spend a lot of money yet you desperately need a treadmill, the Nordictrack T5.5 is one machine you could consider if you’re not a heavy or intensive user. Like we stated above, the 325 lb weight capacity is quite impressive for this price but we have doubts as to how well it can live up to its claim which is why we don’t recommend this treadmill for serious users. Though the Nordictrack T5.5 may not sport a whole lot of features like its “big brothers”, you should know that maybe just 4 or 5 years ago, the T5.5 would easily match treadmills that are in the price in terms of features. This just shows you how much Nordictrack has improved in the last few years in this department.
