Introduction

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 has industry-standard specs across the board, plus many bells and whistles that make the treadmill one of the most popular on the market.

The Commercial 1750 can support just about any user with its 3.8 CHP motor, 22″ x 60″ running surface and highly durable frame. It has 38 workout apps to help meet diverse workout goals too. The treadmill is also equipped with iFit technology.

Other high-tech perks include an iPod-compatible port, Intermix Acoustics 3.0 speakers, an integrated tablet holder and a 7″ web-enabled touch screen display.

New for 2016 is NordicTrack’s WhisperQuiet™ deck design. This technology reduces the sound level of each step you take.

The Commercial 1750 has one of the best warranty packages on the market (see below) and can be a very good value at  $1,499.

Workout Programs

Get the results you want with help from 38 built-in workouts designed by a certified personal trainer. Choose from interval training, speed training, calorie burn and heart rate control workouts that automatically adjust the treadmill’s speed and incline to help meet your exercise goals.

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill is also iFit-enabled. In contrast, treadmills that are only iFit-compatible require the use of a special monitor, which is typically sold separately. Treadmills that are iFit-enabled can show iFit programming on the trainee’s own mobile device.

iFit subscribers get instant access to workout programs from celebrity personal trainers as well as access to interactive Google Maps workouts, which include streaming street views and let the treadmill mimic the rise and fall of actual terrain.
To help you maximize the efficiency of each workout, heart rate monitoring is available via built-in pulse grips and wireless monitoring.

NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Features

Listen to tunes on your iPod with the built-in dock and enjoy high fidelity sound from this NordicTrack’s Intermix Acoustics 3.0 speakers.

Exercise data are shown on a great looking 7″ full-color touch screen display. Navigating the workout menu and tracking your stats have never been easier. Quickly view your speed, time, distance, calories burned, pulse and incline. Browse the web from the same screen!

Stay cool and comfortable with help from three workout fans, all adjustable.

Protect your joints and muscles with commercial-grade Runner’s Flex cushioning on a spacious 20″ x 60″ running surface. Minimizing the impact on your back, hips, knees and joints is among the advantages of running on a treadmill instead of outdoors.

Quickly adjust speed and incline with OneTouch controls. The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 can reach up to 12 mph and has a maximum incline of 15 percent. It has a decline too for targeting different muscle groups.

To reveal floor space after workouts, the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 can easily be folded with Space-Saver technology. However, this 315-pound trainer is not very portable.

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 also features an integrated rack for your tablet computer. A sturdy, removable bracket is located at eye-level above the display and can be adjusted for just the right viewing angle.
