Introduction

The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Treadmill is designed for durability and engaging workout sessions. It’s an upgraded version of the Commercial 1750, which is among today’s most popular home treadmills.

The Commercial 2450 can power workouts for trainees of most sizes. It has a sturdy steel frame, a 4.0 CHP motor and a spacious 22″ x 60″ running surface. It has 40 preset apps to help meet various fitness goals too, such as weight loss and endurance. This NordicTrack is also equipped with iFit technology.

Bonuses include an iPod-compatible port, Intermix Acoustics 3.0 speakers, a tablet holder with adjustable angle, and a 10″ web-enabled touch screen.

Noise reduction technology is another perk. NordicTrack’s new WhisperQuiet™ deck absorbs the sound from each step you take, making the Commercial 2450 a great choice for shared living spaces.

The Commercial 2450 has an excellent warranty package (see below). At the sale price of $1799, this treadmill can be a great value for runners seeking a treadmill with high power and plenty of features.

Workout Programs

Get fit with guidance from 40 built-in workout programs. Designed by a certified personal trainer, the programs fall into four categories: heart rate control, calorie burn, interval training and speed training. Each can automatically adjust the treadmill’s speed and incline.

The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Treadmill is also iFit-enabled, which means that iFit can be accessed on your own tablet computer or smartphone. In contrast, some other iFit treadmills require the purchasing of a special monitor.

As an iFit member you can download customized workout programs, virtually train with celebrity personal trainers, automate your data tracking and design interactive Google Maps workouts. The Google Maps feature lets you specify any real-life route and experience it with a streaming street view as the treadmill automatically adjusts its incline/decline to replicate the terrain.

To help you exercise in your target heart rate zone, the Commercial 2450 provides built-in pulse grips and also arrives with a chest strap for wireless monitoring.

NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Features

Technology on this treadmill is impressive. It ranges from an automated incline/decline to the latest treadmill electronics for entertainment.

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

Exercise data are shown on a full color 10″ touch screen, which makes it easy to navigate the extensive workout menu and track your progress. Browse the Internet from the same large screen!

Three workout fans, all adjustable, help keep you comfortable. The fans are AutoBreeze, so you can let them automatically adjust to your workout speed if desired.

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.

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.

To reveal floor space after workouts, the treadmill deck can easily be folded upward with SpaceSaver technology.

The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 also features an adjustable rack for your tablet computer. Located above the console, it makes it easy for users of all heights to get an eye-level view.
