NordicTrack C 900 Treadmill Review
In the past couple of years, NordicTrack has released some outstanding values in their treadmill line, including the NordicTrack C 900.
The treadmill may not jump out as the most powerful, most electronically equipped piece of exercise equipment, yet it has everything you could possibly want in a quality treadmill at a very reasonable price.
The NordicTrack C900 is equipped with an industry standard motor (3.0 CHP), running deck (20″ x 60″), rollers (2.5″) and large speed/incline range.

Existing customers of the NordicTrack C900 have absolutely raved about the comfort of the trainer, though we’ve heard complaints about their customer service.
The treadmill features Quadflex cushioning that reduces impact on your joints with an air-based, shock cushioning system on an extra-long treadbelt.
In addition to the advanced cushioning system, the C900 also features a 3.0 CHP Durx motor, 20″ x 60″ running surface, 20 pre-defined workout programs and CardioGrip heart rate monitor.
It also has a few toys including iFit Live compatibility, iPod dock, Intermix Acoustics 3.0 speakers and 7″ hi-res display.
Grouped in the $1,000-$1,500 price range (UPDATE: now under $1,000), the NordicTrack C900 does a little of everything.
The 32 pre-defined workout programs on the NordicTrack C900 is what you would expect from a reputable treadmill manufacture.
The workout apps are broken down into four individual categories (high intensity, speed, incline, calorie burn), each with five routines.
Although you will be more than satisfied with the pre-defined programs, a lot of users will quickly want to start experimenting with iFit.
The innovative technology is one of the best additions to treadmills in the past decade, featuring a massive database of workouts (all designed by certified trainers) that are quickly accessible via the NordicTrack C900.
Additionally, with your iFit account, consumers can get a nutrition and activity tracker, motivating text messages and emails, as well as workout videos available for download. Connect with Google Maps and the treadmill will actually adjust speed and incline based on real terrain.
The only knock on this particular treadmill is that the iFit Wireless Module is sold separately, and required before you can actually enjoy iFit Live.
A lot of consumers will be sold on iFit (and for good reason), but we should also note that the NordicTrack C900 offers several other amazing features like Quadflex cushioning, SpaceSaver design, AutoBreeze cooling fan and CardioGrip heart rate monitoring.
The C900 can reach speeds up to 12 mph and 15 percent incline thanks to the 3.0 CHP Durx motor backed by a lifetime guarantee.
The treadmill folds with Space Saver design and features 2.5″ precision machined rollers for easy transport. While two great features, the C900 is still not the most compact treadmill on the market.
The NoricTrack C900 provides a comfortable workout experience with advanced Quadflex cushioning as well as an Autobreeze workout fan that automatically adjusts airflow based on how hard you are exercising.
Monitor crucial exercise data on an easy to read 7″ hi-res display with RaceTrack technology.
Last but not least, the NordicTrack C900 is iPod/mp3 compatible and earphones are not required thanks to the 3.0 Intermix Acoustics built-in speakers.
