Good balance between affordability, functions and features, and quality Lots of built-in programs Long stride length Supports iPod Bad points Doesn’t support the new iFit Live (look at the A.C.T Pro instead if you need this option) Poorest built of the A.C.T series of Treadmills Comments First of all, Nordictrack did a really poor job in naming their Treadmills. There are three Treadmills that having A.C.T as part of their name. These include the Nordictrack C2500 Pro, the Nordictrack A.C.T Commercial, and finally the Nordictrack C2500 Of the three, the A.C.T Pro is best built and has the best functions, the Nordictrack A.C.T is the most affordable with the least amount of features and the A.C.T Commercial is in between these two. The Black Friday sale price of makes the C2500 a slightly better buy than the Nordictrack A.C.T Commercial. Trade up to the Commercial version for an extra if you want a slightly better crafted treadmill but the would probably be better spent on an extra 3 year parts and labor warranty. The NordicTrack C2500 Treadmill combines simplicity and technology that will surely help you achieve a fit and healthy body you’ve always yearned for. It comes with 20 iFiT workouts that automatically adjust the resistance of the machine so you can focus on aerobic, weight loss, or performance goals. The NordicTrack C2500 Treadmill also has upper-body workout arms that enable you to burn more calories and help you tone your upper-body, thus providing a total body workout using just a single fitness machine. To make such workout more intense and provide you with more efficient results, the NordicTrack C2500 Treadmill allows you to choose from up to 20 different levels of machine resistance and strides of up to 22”. Not only that, the dual-grip EKG heart rate monitor of the NordicTrack C2500 Treadmill ensures that you stay within your target training zone. NordicTrack believes that to better achieve the results you dreamed of, it is of importance that you have an enjoyable workout routine. The NordicTrack C2500 Treadmill has an Interplay Universal iPod dock where you can simply plug your iPod so you can instantly listen to your favorite music while working out. The Grafixx high-resolution display animates an electronic figure who works out with you through your entire workout.

Takes up very little space Stride length is adjustable from 18″ to 22″ “Commercial” quality for a home Treadmill iPod dock standard warranty Relatively low maximum weight capacity Not iFit compatible The Nordictrack A.C.T Classic Treadmill is basically the Nordictrack A.C.T without the iFit option. An iFit capable Treadmill allows you to plug in workout cards which are cards with preprogrammed workouts. This gives you new workouts beyond the 20 that are preprogrammed into the console. As it doesn’t come with the iFit option, it’s priced slightly less than the model that does have it. This is great for those people who wants to save a few bucks and don’t need all the bells and whistles that they’re not going to need anyway. The Nordictrack A.C.T classic features an incredible 22″ stride. What’s even more incredible is the fact that a compact Treadmill that can stride a full 22″ only takes up 47″ of floor space. This Treadmill by Nordictrack really exemplifies the phrase “less is more.” Besides the amazing stride length, this Treadmill also comes with a lot of other impressive features like 20 iFit personal trainer workouts that are custom designed to maximize whatever your goals are including weight loss, aerobics and performance. To help you with this, the dual grip heart rate monitor will help you monitor your heart rate so you’ll always train in the most beneficial heart rate zone. Although this piece of machine does not come with a built in TV, you do get a Universal iPod dock to help you through those workouts where it takes every remaining ounce of your willpower to get through. The Nordictrack A.C.T Treadmill accomodates users of up to 250 lbs and comes with a 1 year parts and labor warranty with a lifetime frame and 10 year brake warranty.
