I am so glad that I bought this treadmill. Nothing beats a Nordic Track. It works as well as any gym machine. THe only drawback is the metal insert that has to be used each time for access. Worth the price. It isn't too loud. and keeps good time. The heart rate is just okay as your hands have to be completely sweat free to get a reading-- otherwise, it is a great product. Definitely recommend if you do not need a TV screen on your treadmill!
Ive been running on treadmills all of my life. Usually on ProForms, but I decided to go with the "higher end" brand, NordicTrack. BIg mistake. From the first day that the treadmill was delivered, I noticed that the belt was extremely off centered and crooked. I did the allen wrench trick in the back a few times (that is supposed to straighten the belt.) That however, did not work, because it is misaligned from the top portion. The second issue was discovered upon my first run on the treadmill. The motor has a mind of its own, and no, I was not in any programs. Everytime I run, I do the manual speed. Eventually during my workout, it increases SUDDENLY on its own, and I cant keep up. It is horrible. Ive contacted NordicTrack, and hopefully they can help me. Poor quality, and malfunctioning.
Excellent fast response to problem with module display!
I purchased this treadmill with hopes of improving my exercise regiment. It has all the necessary features and amenities and it doesn't take up too much space. However, after one year of use the incline function stopped working.
This treadmill is a piece of junk! Squeaks, squeals, and is unstable. Within 4 months of usage the motor went bad. Call customer service and waited 30 minutes for them to tell me that I needed a new motor which they don't have in stock. So I waited 3 weeks for a motor that I had to install myself. Ok, so new motor goes bad in 2 months. I call customer service and wait 40 minutes this time to hear the same thing. Apparently, they are having trouble with this motor. So I am waiting another month for the new motor. In the mean time I have been forced to join a gym (more$$$). I wish I had my Proform treadmill back. Anyway, buyer beware. This treadmill is junk.
It was an Ok treadmill for 45 days. It was kind off loud, but I guess they all are. However, the motor started sounding funny after 45 days of sporadic usage. Returned it to Sears. After reading similar reviews, I will have to look for a different product.
