Product Pros And Cons

Nordic Track C 900 Treadmill

1) 3.0 HP Motor

This is one of the highest motor powers you can find at this price point. It runs extremely quiet and will give you more than enough power to run the extra long 60″ belt.

2) Run Trails All Over the World With iFit Live

iFit Live is the newest workout WiFi technology from Nordictrack.

If you have wireless Internet in your home you can connect the C900 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 through the console speakers.

You can also track your activity and nutrition online and even download new daily workouts. So you’ll always have a new challenge.

3) 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. The 3″  high-excursion drivers in the sound system give you very clear sound and are another improvement over past models.

4) 20 Built-In Workout Apps

In the spirit of the iPod apps, Nordic Track is now adding workout ‘apps’ to their treadmills. You get 5 high intensity, 5 speed, 5 incline or 5 calorie-burn apps that focus your workout on a specific goal.

5) 60″ Long Belt

This is one of the longest belts Nordic Track makes. So runners, taller users or those who just want more room to move will appreciate the extra space on this treadmill belt.

6) 15% Incline

Most treadmills under $1000 only give you 10% incline – or 12% at best. With this higher incline you can burn more calories, build in tougher intervals and push yourself farther.
