The NordicTrack Elite 9700 Pro Treadmill
A while back I wrote a review about the NordicTrack Elite 9500 Pro. I said that it was the most elite treadmill ever offered by Nordictrack. Well, I was close. There is one with a little more bang. The Elite 9700 is a step up from the 9500. There really isn’t a huge difference. On the outside the treadmills look practically identical. However, there are a few upgrades that may persuade you to spend the extra money for this one.
Nordictrack really went all out with this treadmill. I’m not sure what more they could offer on a treadmill. This is the most functional, powerful, sturdy, and quality treadmill ever offered by Nordictrack. The main feature of this treadmill is the amazing 4.0 Horsepower Commercial Pro Motor. This motor is the strongest motor used in any Nordictrack treadmill. Its extra strength will keep it from ever wearing out, and it will keep quieter than other treadmills. It has a lifetime motor warranty too, so you’ll never have to worry about the motor wearing itself out.
The weight limit is 375 lbs, compared to the 350 lb limit on the 9500. Its deck is just somewhat stronger. This treadmill has 34 programs on it rather than the 28 offered on the 9500. And last, but not least, there is an 8″ Fan on this treadmill not found on the other.
Here are the impressive specs:
- 4.0 CHP Motor
- 22″ x 60″ touch screen.
- weight limit: 375 lbs
- -3 – 15% incline/decline
- 12 MPH max speed
- Ifit Live Built-in
- Quadflex Precision Calibration Cushioning
- 8″ workout fan
- 10″ Full Color touch screen
- 34 built-in workouts
- Music Port and Built-in Acoustic 3.0 speakers
- Lifetime Frame and Motor, 7 year parts, 2 year labor warranty.
With the extra 2 years on the parts warranty, extra bulk, extra power, extra workouts, extra 8″ fan, and several other things, this treadmill may outweigh the extra cost.
Plus you will receive an added bonus of platinum delivery included. That means you don’t have to do a thing. You buy it and they bring it to your door, bring it in where you want, set it all up, and make sure it works just right before they leave. This alone can cost an extra few hundred dollars.
So if you want to be the proud owner of the absolute top treadmill by Nordictrack, go for it. This treadmill will not disappoint you. And it should last for as long as you live.
