Our Rating

Rating: 92.8/100. The foldable Commercial 2450 is among NordicTrack’s top treadmills for home use. It’s built with high quality practical components such as a two-ply belt and a sound-muffling deck, but its popularity is probably best explained by the combination of 4.0 continuous horsepower (great for runners) and special features that keep workouts interesting: automated incline/decline, a 10” touchscreen with web browser, seamless integration of Google Maps workouts, and much more. A potential drawback is that although this treadmill is foldable, it isn’t the sort of fitness machine you can quickly and easily move from room to room. However that’s really standard as it’s hard to find a stable and durable treadmill that easily moveable.  Here are pros and cons to consider about the Commercial 2450 treadmill for 2017…

Pros:

  • Large running surface (22″ x 60″)
  • Top speed 12 mph
  • Power incline and decline (-3% to +15%)
  • WhisperQuiet™ deck
  • Customizable cushioning (On/off)
  • Music friendly (iPod-compatible, 3″ speakers)
  • 40 built-in workout apps
  • iFit-enabled for unlimited workouts
  • Lifetime guarantee on frame, deck and motor
  • 10″ full-color touch screen with Android browser
  • Tablet holder with adjustable angle
  • SpaceSaver design (Foldable)

Cons:

  • Although foldable, too heavy to be considered portable
  • If problems arise, parts replacement might take a while

Introduction

The new NordicTrack Commercial 2450 has a cutting-edge display, but it’s not just about flash. This treadmill is designed to “have it all”: durability, power, high-end cushioning, quiet operation and engaging workout sessions. It’s an upgraded version of the Commercial 1750, which is among today’s most popular home treadmills. You can expect Commercial Series treadmills to serve for years before significant maintenance is needed, so at the common sale price of $1799 the 2450 is an above-average value. Its best match is a runner or a high-traffic household seeking a cardio trainer with extra power and plenty of features.

Workout Programs

The 2450 treadmill helps you reach fitness goals efficiently with guidance from 40 workout programs that adjust the track’s speed and incline. These programs fall into four categories: heart rate control, calorie burn, interval training and speed training.

The machine is also a treadmill enabled for iFit Coach, with all iFit features being accessible from the treadmill’s 10” touch screen or your own computer/mobile device.

As an iFit member you can download customized personal training programs, use the iFit video library featuring celebrity personal trainers, and design interactive Google Maps workouts. Scenic Google Maps workouts show streaming street views as the 2450’s track automatically adjusts its incline/decline to replicate the terrain. iFit Coach can also make personalized health/fitness recommendations that evolve with your activity.

NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Features

Technology on this treadmill is impressive. It ranges from an automated incline/decline to digital features for data tracking and entertainment. The highlight in terms of upgrades for 2017 is the 10” touchscreen display, which can now show iFit and the web in high definition. A tablet bracket with adjustable angle is affixed to the console so you can add your own apps to training too.

OneTouch controls make it convenient to alter the Commercial 2450’s speed and incline in the midst of a workout. The treadmill can reach up to 12 mph and has a maximum incline of 15 percent. It has a maximum 3 percent decline too for recruiting different muscle groups.

Workouts are powered with a 4.0 CHP motor under lifetime warranty. That’s enough power for all but the heaviest runners, who might do better with the 2950.

To help you exercise in your target heart rate zone, the Commercial 2450 has grip pulse sensors and is also packaged with a chest strap for wireless monitoring.

Listen to music by connecting your MP3 player and turning up the NordicTrack’s integrated speakers. High fidelity sound is supported by 3” speakers from Intermix Acoustics.

Three workout fans, all adjustable, can help keep you comfortable. The fans are AutoBreeze, so you can let them adjust to your workout speed or else choose a fixed setting.

Runner’s Flex cushioning on the spacious 22″ x 60″ track significantly reduces the impact of running when compared with asphalt. It can be turned off too to help you prepare for outdoor competition.

To reveal floor space after workouts, the treadmill deck can easily be folded upward with SpaceSaver technology. When unfolded the machine has a 72.25” x 34” footprint.

Conclusion

The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 is an exciting option for home gyms, especially those with a regular runner or otherwise heavy traffic. This model is more treadmill than some shoppers need, but if your body size and/or training habits call for extra power it can be a great value. Similar treadmills in this series, also highly rated, are the 1750 and 2950.
