Treadmills are becoming increasingly high tech. These connected and interactive machines now come complete with tips and innovations to make your workout experience both more comfortable and more effective. Below, find a brief overview of the technologies in NordicTrack treadmills to help you work out wherever you want, whenever you want and most importantly: however you want!
The treadmill: a classic (home) fitness machine
The treadmill is one of the most popular home fitness devices, and NordicTrack offers an extensive range of high-end models divided into different series according to users’ needs.
And don’t forget racing bikes! They can help you get back into shape, build muscle, or get a cardio workout. And they go easy on your joints and your back. It’s also become an indispensable piece of equipment for both gym and home use! Finally, just as with NordicTrack treadmills, racing bikes continually incorporate new technologies to tempt you even more.
Incline and decline, at your fingertips
To most accurately reproduce outdoor walking or running, the treadmill should be tilted up a few degrees. To simulate hills, incline it even a little more. Finally, to get a full and varied workout for your leg muscles, ideally it’s best to be able to apply a negative incline – that is, a decline. This means that the treadmill itself will lean forward.
Few treadmills have such capabilities. NordicTrack Incline Series treadmills offer an incline of up to 40% and a decline up to -6%. With just one finger, you’ve got an incredibly wide range of adjustable positions. And this point is important: the incline adjustment is directly accessible on the console, not at the bottom of a menu.
Thousands of programmable hikes around the world
Treadmills with manually adjustable resistance are a thing of the past. With integrated iFit programmes, as well as new downloadable programmes, you can access a multitude of trails, runs and paths. You can virtually take a walk anywhere in the world. And for high-end models that support iFit Bluetooth, images of your chosen path are displayed on the tablet screen as you walk. Without leaving your living room, train in Canada or Ireland, or wherever! All NordicTrack treadmills are iFit compatible, and many are available with iFit Bluetooth technology (tablet access via an app), so you can vary programmes according to your goals.
One advantage of running on a treadmill is the smooth, flat, slightly cushioned floor that provides more comfort than running on asphalt. With NordicTrack Flexselect technology, you can even modify your cushioning level. Choose a moderate or firm setting with the T Series, for example.
Have fun and work out to your favorite music
The most recent treadmills are MP3 compatible and have speakers, and are equipped with a tablet connected to the Internet to provide immediate access to videos, social networks, TV series, etc. You won’t even notice the time pass by on a treadmill like this!
An example is the top of the line NordicTrack Elite Series, as well as the C Series, which comes with integrated speakers.
Comfort, power, speed
NordicTrack treadmills are designed with the latest integrated technologies to increase your comfort (for example, the C Series autobreeze fan). You can also count on the reliability of NordicTrack treadmills, with speeds of up to 12, 13, even 14 mph depending on the model. In actuality, you won’t ever hit maximum power on a NordicTrack treadmill, which go up to 5.75 hp on the Elite model).
Another plus: NordicTrack is so sure of its products that it offers a warranty on the structure of its treadmills for 10 years and on the motor for 5 years, in addition to the legal warranty of 2 years!
With 5 product ranges and more than 15 models, NordicTrack always aims to find and integrate the latest technologies into its treadmills, according to the needs of its users. For example, the C Series focuses on weight loss while the T Series emphasises performance. The Elite Series is a high-end, interactive and connected model. Ultimately, it comes down to your personal choice, and which model best suits you and your goals. Using a NordicTrack treadmill is sure to change your way of life. Are you ready?
