I love this treadmill it has everything myself and my family need to get healthy. I suffered a heart attack 4 months ago so i need to exercise every day. Purchased this in the box not put together took a bit to put it together but the instructions were great as long as you follow them. I would buy another one.
Purchased the Nordic Track 5700 1.5 years ago. In the last 3 months the motor and the rollers have had to be replaced. I tried to use one of the programmed workouts and it raised the incline and now it is stuck. I am now going on a month of trying to get this fixed, and the part has been "on order" for 3 weeks. Do not buy a Nordic Track. I'd rate it 0 stars, but it won't let me.
We got 5750 to replace the previous treadmill whose control panel went bad and was not repairable to not being made anymore. The 5750 is nice with a negative and positive incline possible. We also like the ability to raise it so it does not consume as much floor space. It will cost you additional funds beyond the ones you pay to get it though. In order to use programmed routes, you have to have a subscription to I-fit, one for each user. It has blue tooth but only for the chest strap and not to connect to your iPhone which can't connect via cord anymore. I-fit programs are nice but they are not for everyone. Most of them are short to allow for using a public gym and not long distances need for race workups which is one of the reasons we have a treadmill at home as my wife participates in 10Ks and 1/2 marathons.
The delivery service is awful. They were an hour outside of the delivery window. I had to pick up my kid from camp and couldn't wait. They called and yelled at me that I was not home for the delivery. Took the treadmill back and are holding it hostage for another half week. Hey, Sears, I was home for the delivery window- you messed up. You are rude and will not make amends outside of YOUR schedule. So long Sears, you had a great run...
My husband and I use the treadmill daily, so it gets a lot of use, and we really like it so far. Time will tell about its longevity It's much quieter than our old treadmill, and all features work as expected. The "mandatory" warm-up and cool-down are a little annoying but are probably a good safety feature. We mostly use the manual start and did not opt to join the iFit program, but the free workouts are nice for diversity.
I jump on my treadmill when I can't make it to the gym, about 2-3 times/week. The NordicTrack Elite 5750 is a great, affordable treadmill for the home. I like the incline and speed buttons on the sides to quickly change up my workouts. It's also not too loud when I run and entire treadmill feels very sturdy, even when sprinting. I also tried some of the pre-programmed workouts and they were not bad/actually doable (I'm not a fast runner). The only minor things are that it does take a while to start up, there is no adjustment for the angle of the fan (it blows in my face and dries my eyes out), and the initial start/warm-up is more like a jerk than a slow/smooth start.
Purchase this product and continue to have issues with the software updates and calibration functions. I have contacted NordicTrack several times and have yet to get any response.
