Rating: 84.4/100. Budget friendly elliptical offers adjustable stride length and good resistance variety. NordicTrack 990 PRO features plenty of toys, but is only backed by one year coverage on parts and labor. Still, it is hard to find a trainer that provides so much for its price.

The NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 PRO is a great value considering that you get so much for under $1,000.
The elliptical will satisfy most consumers with the Silent Magnetic resistance, 18-20 inch stride length, 16 levels of resistance and 22 lb. flywheel all designed to provide a smooth and effective workout experience.
However, that is not to say the AudioStrider 990 PRO has some drawbacks, namely complaints in the past about the “too good to be true” 350 lbs. max user weight (some critics put it more at 250 lbs.) and the 20 inch stride length that is only available with the incline set to 30 percent.
Regardless, there is a lot more to like about the NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 PRO than dislike.
The NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 PRO offers 15 target toning workouts and 10 performance workouts. The target toning exercises will focus on specific muscle groups, while the performance workouts present the user with a versatile workout performance to keep you in excellent shape.
As previously mentioned, the NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 PRO is compatible with iFit Live. Endorsed by celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels, the program connects users (via Wi-Fi) instantly to customizable fitness plans, new workouts, online profile, access to Google Maps and more.
iFit Live is definitely an excellent weapon to add to your exercise arsenal as the program also offers a nutrition and activity tracker, motivating text messages and emails and even workout videos.
If that is not enough, users can get an additional challenge by using the built-in heart rate program with Dual-Grip Cardiogrip heart rate monitoring.
NOTE: While iFit Live is probably the most tantalizing feature of the NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 PRO you will need to purchase the module ($50) as well as commit to a yearly membership ($120).
