Rating: 95.9/100. The Commercial 2450 Treadmill is among NordicTrack’s top-rated treadmills built for 2018. It lets you train with a club-quality motor and other premium essentials, but “extras” explain its popularity. NordicTrack is a top seller because of special features that enhance exercise, like iFit Coach Google Maps workouts, power incline/decline, and touchscreens with web browsers… and the Commercial 2450 shares some of the brand’s best technologies.

Introduction

The new NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Treadmill has it all: cutting-edge electronics, advanced power and suspension, durability and quiet operation. Its best match is a high-energy household that will make use of the machine’s special features like iFit Coach video workouts and power incline/decline.

Workout Programs

Commercial 2450 treadmills are enabled to download an unlimited variety of workout programs from iFit Coach. They also have generous built-in workout menus as described below.

As an iFit Coach member you can download a new workout program anytime. iFit Coach treadmill workout programs have three formats: standard, interactive Google Maps, and interactive HD video.

For standard and Google Maps workouts, you can create your own routine or download programs created by others (the iFit Coach team and other members). Math says the options are endless! As for the video workouts, you have hundreds of impressive choices. Technology truly makes training feel interactive, as if you were exercising alongside a dedicated coach.

And like a true personal trainer, the iFit Coach app adapts to make customized suggestions about treadmill workout programs to try. It also offers lots of well-organized workout series with about 10 or 12 programs each. You can follow the video workouts of a celebrity personal trainer, or play a series of Google Maps workouts that have ever-increasing difficulty.

The built-in workout collection on the Commercial 2450 consists of 40 programs categorized by exercise goals: heart rate control, calorie burn, interval training and speed training. Each program automates the treadmill speed and incline (unless you switch the settings) to make the most of your exercise time. You can choose a workout and then surf the web, flip through a magazine or keep the pace with your MP3s as you train.

NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Features

Starting from the top, for 2018 the NordicTrack Commercial 2450 has an attractive console with 10” HD touchscreen. The screen lets you access a web browser, a built-in program menu and a connection to iFit Coach. There’s also space to rest your own mobile device.

For 2018 the console’s audio system has been enhanced; Bluetooth replaces a plug-in port for MP3 players. The speakers are 3” wide, whereas those in lower NordicTrack treadmill series are smaller.

Alongside the screen, 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 slope range of -3 to 15 percent for incline training.
To help you exercise in your target heart rate zone, the Commercial 2450 arrives with a chest strap for wireless heart rate monitoring. The machine also has grip pulse sensors.

Three workout fans, are positioned to cool your face and body. You can set the speed or let it adjust automatically to your workout pace.
The belt is two-ply for durability, and the workout surface is a bit roomier than most at 22” wide and 60” long. The belt is powered by a 4.0 CHP motor under lifetime warranty.

Suspension in the Commercial Series is adjustable. Choose “Soft” to help cushion your joints, or choose “Road” for a firmer running surface.
A magnetic key can automatically shut off the treadmill in case the user slips during exercise.

Each machine in this series is a folding treadmill: To reveal floor space after workouts, the deck can be stored upright with help from hydraulic lift.
When unfolded the new Commercial 2450 has a 72.25” x 34” footprint.
