Verdict: Highly Recommended
The Nordic Track Commercial 1750 treadmill is ideal for people looking for a strong, well-built treadmill that can take a beating. It’s a higher construction grade than many treadmills at this price point with a super-strong deck and stable feel.
Plus there’s a softer side – the iFit Live helps keep you entertained with new workouts and running trails with Google Terrain. And the 3% decline helps lend a more realistic feel to your iFit LIVE workouts (also great for crosstraining).
The iPod dock with speakers lets you listen to your favorite tunes while working out. And the large touch-screen display makes it easy to scroll through your workout options. All in all, a strong treadmill that runners will love.
Product Pros And Cons
NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill
1) iFit Live Built In
You can get iFit LIVE already built in with this treadmill (you don’t need the extra iFit LIVE module). With iFit LIVE you can get workouts powered by Googlemaps that simulate trails all over the world. You can also map out your own trails that you want to run.
You can also get workouts where Jillian Michaels coaches you through your workouts. You can download new workouts to your treadmill and even track your workout stats online. Basically, there’s so much to do, you won’t get bored with this treadmill.
2) Full Color Touch-Screen Display
The large 7″ display makes it easy to read your stats like speed, pace, distance, time, calories burned, pulse and incline. You can choose your workout options with the swipe of a finger. Plus the full-color display is really neat when you’re using the iFit LIVE to run different trails as it shows you the terrain in full color.
3) 3% Decline
In addition to up to 15% incline, you also have the option to decline with this treadmill, which is something you don’t find on most machines.
This can give you a better crosstraining workout, more variety and also, as stated above, it lends a more realistic feel to when you’re walking a trail using the iFit LIVE.
4) Stronger Construction For Added Stability
The Commercial 1750 is built to a higher construction standard with more substance to it than lesser priced Nordic Tracks. They use large precision-machines 3″ rollers, which can stand up longer under more stress. The 350 lb weight capacity, high powered 3.5 HP motor and heavier unit weight also help to contribute to a sturdier, more stable feel – great for runners or those who like to power walk.
5) Extra Long 60″ Treadbelt For Extra Running Space
This is currently the longest treadbelt that Nordic Track makes and is especially popular with runners or taller users. You can pick up the pace without feeling like you’re falling off the treadmill.
6) Workout Fan That Adjusts To Your Speed
The large 8″ console workout fan actually can adjust to your workout speed. You can also choose to set it on a specific setting like low medium or high.
7) iPod Port With Built-In Speakers For More Enjoyable Workouts
You can plug your iPod or MP3 player into the built-in audio jack and listen to your favorite music while you workout. While this is becoming a fairly standard feature in higher end treadmills, it’s still nice to have and can make your workouts a lot more enjoyable.
8) 30 Built In Workouts
In addition to iFit LIVE workouts, you also get a total of 30 built-in workouts with the Commercial 1750. There are 20 calorie-burning workouts designed to burn maximum calories and there are also 10 All-Terrain Workouts which automatically adjust your speed and incline during the workout to simulate a different terrain.
There’s also a Set-A-Goal center where you can choose your desired time, calorie and distance preferences for the workout.
9) Extra Long Warranty with 2 Years on Service
The Commercial 1750 is currently being offered with an extra long warranty. The motor and frame are covered for a lifetime. Parts are covered for 5 years and labor is covered for 2 years.
Of special note is the 2 years on service – which is excellent. With other brands, you usually only get 1 year on service. This alone can save you quite a bit of money.
