NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 (C 1750) is one of the highest-rated treadmills the manufacturer produces, which is saying quite a bit since some of its “little brothers” are highly rated as well. That said, it does have its problems, which we’ll get into in the pros & cons.

The NordicTrack C1750 features a 3.8 CHP motor, 20″ x 60″ running surface, built-in iFit Live (with Google Maps), 7″ full-color touch screen display, iPod compatibility, Quadflex Cushioning and much, much more.

Quick Summary
Rating: 93.6/100. One of their top rated treadmills, the NordicTrack C 1750 has more features than we’ve seen on anything else under $1,500. Its only major drawbacks are the Android technology sometimes malfunctioning, incline calibration issues, and slow customer support if problems come up.

– Wide running surface (20″ x 60″ deck)
– Positive incline as well as negative decline
– Music friendly (mp3, built-in speakers)
– iFit Live built-in w/ Google Maps
– Lifetime guarantee on frame, deck, motor
– Large, full-color touch screen display

– Android OS malfunctions in some machines
– If computer malfunctions, machine is unusable
– Not very portable at 315 lbs. (but does fold)
– If problems arise, support takes too long
– Incline calibration is difficult
– Max speed can be off on some machines

Update: We heard complaints about the 2011’s Android technology malfunctioning, but only a few about the 2012.

While the C 1750’s specs and features are fantastic, poor customer support and malfunctioning technology are serious issues when investing $1,500 in a treadmill, so here are some similar models to consider in this price range:

– Similar specs and price: Sole F83
– Lower price and feature like iFit: LiveStrong LS13.0t


The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 has industry-standard specs across the board, as well as numerous quality extras that make the treadmill one of the most popular on the market.

The C1750 is able to power just about any user on a 3.8 CHP motor, 20″ x  60″ running surface, highly durable frame, with 40 workout apps.

The treadmill also is equipped with iFit Live, iPod dock, Intermix Acoustics 3.0 built-in speakers, integrated iPad holder and 7″ HD touch screen display.

If that is not enough, the C1750 has one of the best warranty packages on the market (more info, below), making it a very good value at  $1,500.

Workout Programs

Get the results you want with 40 built-in workouts designed by a Certified Personal Trainer. Users may select from ten All-Terrain Workouts or twenty Quick Calorie Workouts that automatically adjust your speed and incline to match your workout goals.

The NordicTrack C1750 also already has iFit Live built-in to the treadmill. Which means, unlike other treadmills available, you will not need to purchase the wireless adapter (commonly sold separately) in order to enjoy iFit.

Sign up for membership and get instant access to workout programs from Jillian Michaels as well as access to Google Maps, a revolutionary new feature that re-creates actual terrain or allows you to create your own maps.

Select a map and iFit automatically adjusts speed and incline to match the actual territory. We have had a few customer complaints about the Android technology not working, which is clearly important to note.

The NordicTrack C1750 provides the Set-a-Goal Workout Center for further customization.

Get the most intense workout possible with heart rate monitor easily accessible through built-in pulse grips or Polar heart rate monitor.

Treadmill Features

Listen to tunes on your iPod with the built-in dock and enjoy solid sound on Intermix Acoustics 3.0 speakers.

Exercise data and other information looks amazing on the HD 7″ full-color touch screen display. Navigating through iFit Live workout stats and options have never been easier. Quickly view your speed, time, distance, calories burned, pulse and incline on the large, easy-to-read display.

Stay cool and comfortable with a large, 8″ AutoBreeze workout fan which automatically adjusts the airflow on the fan based on how hard you are exercising.

Keep your bones and joints protected with commercial-grade Runner’s Flex cushioning on a spacious 20″ x 60″ running surface. Protecting your back, hips, knees and joints is one of the many advantages to owning a treadmill.

Quickly adjust speed and incline with 1-Touch controls. The NordicTrack C1750 reaches speeds of 12 mph and incline of 15 percent, as well as a negative incline which targets other muscles.

When not in use, the NordicTrack C1750 easily folds with Space-Saver technology. It’s a nice option, though the trainer is not very portable at 315 lbs.

Now available on the 2013 edition, the NordicTrack C1750 also features an integrated rack for your iPad. A sturdy, removable bracket holds your iPad in place while you workout. It’s located at eye-level above the display, so you can easily view your screen without disrupting your workout.
