NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Review

Quick Summary

The Commercial 1750 treadmill with touchscreen, web browser, and iFit Coach is one of the highest-rated treadmills by NordicTrack. Frequently on sale, it’s an excellent buy for shoppers with budgets around $1,500.

The 1750 is entry-level for NordicTrack’s Commercial Series. More advanced models (like the 2450 and 2950)  have a few additional bonuses such as superior motors and bigger touchscreens. However, those premium features come with a premium price tag. The popular 1750 will satisfy most runners and offers especially great value for walkers and joggers.

The treadmill is equipped with the iFit Coach App that allows users to keep their workouts exciting through virtual runs across the globe from the comfort of their home. The impressive price point, display, and foldable storage option makes this machine a strong choice for casual runners. A sharp design and thick running belt are merely the first impressive features that you’ll notice when considering this machine.

Introduction

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 is ranked a top-rated folding treadmill every year. Its strengths span from a WhisperQuiet deck to a feature-rich console with 7” touchscreen, Internet access and, Bluetooth compatible speakers. Also built with power incline/decline, the Commercial 1750 is one of the best treadmills for iFit Coach workouts with simulated outdoor routes.

The Commercial 1750 includes the iFit Coach App with Google Street view that provides users with a large range of running options every day. Virtual trainers will even educate trainees about the location they are running through during the workout. The iFit Coach App does require a monthly subscription to unlock its full features, but the machine includes 38 preset workouts for those who aren’t interested. Users can select their preset workouts based on calorie burn, interval training, heart rate monitoring, and more. The incline and decline on this machine ranges from -3 to +15, allowing trainees to build muscle and become stronger runners/walkers. The incline and decline will automatically adjust to the terrain during workouts to more accurately represent the location they virtually moving through. An impressive feature to help runners forget they are on a stationary machine!

The belt is slightly wider than the industry standard treadmill, measuring 22 x 60”. The belt is also thicker for added comfort and to keep things quiet. There is a flex cushioning option that can reduce impact on joints by up to 30%. Runners can turn off the cushioning to replicate the feel of running on asphalt. This is an important feature for runners with previous injuries, joint pain, or those looking for varying terrain feels.

The physical features of this treadmill include a 7” screen display, built-in speakers, three fans, and storage for personal items such as phone, keys and water bottles. There are two options for monitoring your heart rate on this machine: touch sensors located at the bottom of the display and a wireless chest strap included with purchase. Heart rate monitoring allows users to more accurately track their progress and challenge their cardiovascular abilities. The display also has Bluetooth for users to connect their different apps or fitbits.

The Commercial 1750 is foldable with easy lift technology, allowing users to tuck the machine away for storage when not in use. It’s an important and underrated feature for owners with smaller living spaces. The treadmill can hold up to 300lbs, which is quite strong for a foldable model.

This cardio trainer is entry-level in its series, yet powerful enough for runners and durable enough for shared use. Performance specs include a high quality 3.6 CHP motor, power incline/decline, and deck suspension with two firmness settings. The factory warranty helps make this iFit treadmill a best buy for in-home exercise.

Workout Programs

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 includes dozens of built-in workout routines along with unlimited iFit Coach programs available to download. Both types of workout programs direct the treadmill’s speed and slope to help you reach specific goals like “burn 200 calories” or “run three miles.”

The 38 built-in programs were designed by a certified personal trainer. Choose from four categories: interval training, speed training, calorie burn, and heart rate control. These preset programs take the guesswork out of exercise. Add your iPod or tablet computer for onboard entertainment and time will fly by!

Even more exciting are the iFit Coach workouts, since they let users virtually tour the world. Experience a new destination every time you train, or repeat a favorite, and try to outperform your old stats. You can train solo along Google Maps routes or work with celebrity coaches like Jillian Michaels.

iFit Coach sorts treadmill programs by difficulty level, making it easy to find the right challenge for your needs. The app also makes exercise recommendations based on your recent activity and fitness goals.

Commercial-grade Runner’s Flex suspension facilitates much less impact to your joints compared with an outdoor track. This feature helps users train for longer and with less chance of injury. It can also be deactivated to help prepare for outdoor competition.

A 7” HD display shows exercise programs and the web. Additionally the 1750 has space for your tablet computer so you can use other apps during exercise.

Accurate heart rate monitoring helps users train at the ideal effort level. A Bluetooth chest strap is included with each NordicTrack Commercial treadmill, plus you can get a grip pulse reading with sensors on the console. The chest strap also works with an iFit wearable data tracker, which is free with iFit Coach signup.

Three workout fans, all with adjustable speed, will cool your face and body during a run. While two storage trays and two beverage holders will help ease your workout with creature comforts.

For safety, each Commercial Series treadmill has a magnetic safety key. When the key is pulled away, the tread belt stops moving.
