I've been researching treadmills for a long time. Being a very large man I knew that I needed something with a heavy duty motor and the extra width of the track allows me to use a more natural gate. I also love tech and gadgets and this thing is loaded with them! It runs smooth and quite and I am extremely pleased and look forward to using this machine for years to come. The reasons I didn't give it 5 stars are for not having an Ethernet port. Hopefully you have room to place this large machine where you have a strong Wi-Fi signal. I would have preferred a hard wired connection for speed and stability. The lift assist mechanism was fairly difficult to install per the instructions. After watching a video of the similar commercial model, and seeing that they installed it in a reverse method, it was much easier. I was disappointed to learn that after spending this much on a 'top of the line' model, they wanted an additional $500 for the 'far less headaches' version of a warranty, which I did not purchase. I would also caution anyone considering this machine to make sure they have adequate ceiling height. 8 foot ceilings would be fine for an average build person, but if you're over 6 foot and plan on taking advantage of the 15% incline, you'll have to choose your location carefully.
I have had this for two month's and it's shutting down and turning on by itself. Nordic Track also didn't provide the year IFit program like the said. Now I have a broken treadmill I can't use until they send me parts and I fix it myself. I'll never buy from them again.
I paid for the iFit coach I thought they were supposed to have people running ahead of you telling you to come on and that's not happen it's really really just pictures of different areas and a lot of them are the same pictures really disappointed in the iFit coach may not be working correctly but so far that's all I have.
I love the programs this treadmill comes with along with the iFit option!!
Don't purchase this.
Arrived requiring a new console--replaced the whole thing the first week. A year old, stopped working--replaced the controller, the chip in the console and now WAITING (because it's backordered, now that's a HINT) another MONTH and then I have absolutely no confidence it will work then.
I have gained a lot of weight over the past 8 months or so and have been wanting to get a treadmill in my home for a long time. This is just a wonderful investment and I will continue to use it several times a week!!
