Our Rating

Rating: 98/100. The new NordicTrack Commercial 1750 for 2017 is a top-rated treadmill overall. Its strengths are many, ranging from its WhisperQuiet™ deck to the feature-rich console with 7” touchscreen, web browser, audio speakers, plenty of workout apps and much more. Performance-related specs are impressive for walkers and most runners too. They include a high quality 3.8 CHP motor, a spacious two-ply track with power incline/decline, and Runners Flex cushioning with two firmness settings. Owing to the power ramp range of -3 to +15 percent, the Commercial 1750 is an especially good choice for use with an iFit membership.

Judging from customer feedback the only occasional drawbacks of ownership are that the incline calibration is sometimes a bit off and that NordicTrack customer support can be slow at times since they are the largest and busiest manufacturer of consumer fitness equipment. Still, those who buy this machine factory-direct get a five-year warranty on the parts/electronics and two years of free servicing.

Pros:

  • Large running surface (22″ x 60″)
  • SpaceSaver design; foldable and has wheels
  • 3.8 CHP motor
  • ower incline and decline (-3% to +15%)
  • 7” HD touch screen with web browser
  • Tablet holder with adjustable angle
  • Music friendly (iPod-compatible, 3″ speakers)
  • 38 built-in workout apps
  • iFit-enabled for unlimited workouts
  • Bluetooth chest strap included for heart rate monitoring
  • On/off cushioning
  • WhisperQuiet™ deck
  • Lifetime guarantee on frame, deck and motor

Cons:

  • Foldable but not so portable at 315 lbs.
  • If problems arise, manufacturer’s support could be slow

Introduction

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 has industry-standard specs across the board, plus many bells and whistles to make it one of the most popular home treadmills on the market. The 1750 can support just about any user with its 3.8 CHP motor, extra-wide 22″ x 60″ running surface and durable steel frame. It has 38 workout apps to support varied fitness goals and is also equipped with iFit for more customized programming and simulated outdoor training.

New for 2017, a high definition 7” touch screen is the 1750’s gateway to preset and iFit apps as well as the Internet. Other digital perks include an Android browser, an iPod-compatible sound system with 3” speakers, and a ledge to keep a tablet computer or phone at eye level. This unit is also equipped with WhisperQuiet™ deck technology, which reduces the sound level of each step you take. Besides all that, the Commercial 1750 has one of the best warranty packages on the market (see below). It’s a top value of the year when acquired at the sale price just under $1600.

Workout Programs

Reach your fitness goals with help from the 1750’s built-in workouts designed by a certified personal trainer. Choose from a 38-item workout menu with the categories of interval training, speed training, calorie burn and heart rate control. Each program automatically adjusts the treadmill’s speed and incline to match your objective.

The 1750 treadmill is also iFit-enabled with a high definition touch screen. With a subscription to the iFit fitness app you can access all of its features right from the console, as well as from your desktop computer or mobile device. Among other benefits subscribers get instant access to workout programs from celebrity personal trainers, unlimited personal training routines, and interactive Google Maps workouts. Google Maps workouts include streaming Google Street Views (when available) and let the treadmill mimic the rise and fall of actual terrain.

NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Features

New for 2017, the Commercial 1750 shows exercise data on a high definition 7″ touch-controlled display. Browse the web from the same screen! An Android browser is included.

To help maximize the efficiency of each workout, heart rate monitoring is available via grip and wireless monitoring. A Bluetooth chest strap is included with purchase of the 2017 version of the Commercial 1750.

Enjoy high fidelity sound as you train with the treadmill’s 3” speakers from Intermix Acoustics. Connect your iPod or other compatible MP3 player.

Stay cool and comfortable with help from three workout fans, all adjustable. Two cool your face and one cools your body.

Minimizing the impact on your back, hips, knees and joints is among the advantages of running on a treadmill instead of outdoors. Protect your joints and muscles with commercial-grade Runner’s Flex cushioning and deflect impact by up to 30%. The cushioning can also be deactivated to better approximate an outdoor running surface.

The track is high quality, being two-ply and resistant to stretching. The running surface is oversized at 22″ x 60″.

OneTouch controls are provided for speed and incline to eliminate the need for scrolling. The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 can reach up to 12 mph and has a maximum incline of 15 percent. It has a decline down to -3 percent 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 removable bracket is located at eye-level above the display and can be adjusted for just the right viewing angle.

– Frame: Lifetime
– Deck: Lifetime
– Motor: Lifetime
