Product Pros And Cons

Nordic Track A2550 Pro Treadmill

1) Run Trails All Over The World With iFit Live

This is is not the standard iFit card reader on many of the older models. IFit Live is the newest technology that Nordic Track is putting on a few of their newer models.

If you have wireless Internet in your home you can connect your treadmill to the Internet. It’s powered by Googlemaps and Google terrain so that you can run or walk different trails all over the world. You can even map out your own course.

You can customize and download your own workout programs and workout with Jillian Michaels from ‘The Biggest Loser’ – where she coaches you through your workout. You can also track your fitness activity and nutrition online and even download new workout videos.

2) iPod/Mp3 Port With Speakers Built Into the Console

You can plug your iPod or MP3 player into the built-in audio jack and listen to your favorite music or audiobooks while you workout. This can make your workout a lot more enjoyable.

3) 16 Workout Programs

In addition to iFit Live, you also have 16 built in workouts that adjust the speed and incline of your treadmill to meet your goals.

There are 4 distance workouts (1 mile, 5 k, 10 k and half marathon), 4 performance workouts, 4 weight loss workout and 4 timed workouts.

4) One Touch Incline and Speed Buttons

Instead of scrolling through your options, you just press the button of the speed or incline you want and the treadmill adjust. It’s a little thing, but it can save you a lot of frustration, especially when you’re running.

5) Heart Rate Monitor

Stay in your target heart rate range by gripping the hand grip heart rate sensors on the front bar of your treadmill. Again, fairly standard but still nice to have.

6) 20 x 55″ Belt

Although taller users may want to upgrade to a longer 60″ belt, this is a still fairly spacious belt and will be fine for most people
