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 a best buy for shoppers with budgets around $1,500.

The 1750 is entry-level for NordicTrack’s Commercial Series. Higher models (the 2450 and 2950) have bigger motors and wider touchscreens. Even so, this popular treadmill can satisfy most runners and is an especially great value for walkers and joggers.

Our Rating

Rating: 98/100. The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 is a top-rated folding treadmill each year. Its strengths span from a WhisperQuiet™ deck to a feature-rich console with 7” touchscreen, Internet access and a Bluetooth speaker connection. Also built with power incline/decline, the Commercial 1750 is among the best treadmills for iFit Coach workouts with simulated outdoor routes.

The Commercial 1750 includes the iFit Coach App with Google Street view that will give users a large range of running options day to day. Runners can experience Asia, Africa, USA and more in the various workout options. The trainers educate runners on the location they are running in during the workout offering an added bonus to a regular workout. The iFit Coach App does require a monthly subscription to unlock its full features but the machine includes 38 preset workouts as well. Users can select their preset workouts based on calorie burning, interval training, heart rate monitoring and more. The incline and decline on this machine range from -3 to +15 allowing runners to tone, build muscle and become stronger runners/walkers. The incline and decline automatically adjust to the terrain during workouts more accurately representing the location they are running. This is a great feature to help runners forget they are on a stationary machine!

The belt is slightly wider than the industry standard treadmill and the belt and measures 22 x 60”. The belt on this machine is thicker allowing for more comfort when running and keeping the sound to a minimum. There is a flex cushioning option that can be turned off and on during runs to reduce the impact on joints up to 30%. Runners can turn off the cushioning to replicate running on asphalt. This is a great feature for runners with previous injuries, joint pain or those looking for varying terrain elements.

The physical features of this treadmill include a 7” screen display, built in speakers, triple 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 — one being on the touch sensors located at the bottom of the display and the second being through a wireless chest strap included with the treadmill. Heart rate monitoring will allow users to more accurately track their progress and challenge their cardiovascular abilities. The display has Bluetooth capabilities for users to connect their different apps or fitbits.

The Commercial 1750 is foldable with easy lift technology to allow users to create more space in the living area when not using the treadmill. This is an awesome feature for those with smaller spaces. The treadmill can hold up to 300lbs so it is a heavier machine in general if needing to maneuver around.

This cardio trainer is entry-level in its series, yet it’s 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

Treadmill workout programs for the 1750 include dozens of built-in routines and unlimited iFit Coach programs, which are available by 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 and let time fly by!

But most exciting are iFit Coach workouts, as they let you 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 lets you sort treadmill programs by difficulty level, so finding a just-right challenge is easy. The app also makes exercise recommendations based on your recent activity and fitness goals.

NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Features
