The Commercial 2450 is definitely at the top of the NordicTrack line up. This machine has everything you would ever need in a treadmill, plus much, much more. This treadmill is also built to last and handle heavy, heavy usage. If you are thinking about a lifetime investment, I’d say this is the treadmill for you. Considering the price, you’re getting one heck of a deal. Of course, it is priced higher than your average treadmill, however, considering the features this treadmill comes with, the price tag should be a lot larger!
You are getting amazing features at this price. First off, this treadmill comes equipped with a 4.0 Durx™ Commercial Pro Motor, a 22″ x 60″ non-stretch commercial tread belt, 40 workout apps, iFit® Enabled, a music port for iPod, and a whopping 15″ integrated HD television. That seems like a ton of features already, but I didn’t even name them all! The Commercial 2450 is an excellent treadmill that will be sure to impress many. If the budget is in your range, I would definitely recommend this machine since it holds so much value. It is just difficult to find this nice of specs and features in this price range.
This treadmill might be a bit over-the-top for beginner users, but at the same time this treadmill is a lifetime investment, and you can count on its livability and at the least, feel safe about the excellent warranty. Overall, this machine will get the job done and offer even more to satisfy the user. This is one impressive machine and there should not be any disappointments.
As mentioned above, it is the feature list that is especially impressive in this review. The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 is one of the most advanced trainers you can buy, and stacks up against any treadmill featured in a professional gym. At the same time, it is simple enough to use for those who prefer to avoid the more tech heavy features, without missing out on function.
Motor Size - The 2450 has a 4.0 horsepower motor that provides the ultimate in durability. At the same time, internal fans cool the system and keep the belt purring with less noise, and less overheating even on long, fast, or heavily inclined walks and runs.
Max Speed - OneTouch speed controls allow you to adjust your pace up to 12 MPH.
Incline/Decline - This is a treadmill rather than a standard incline trainer, and so it has less control where incline and decline is concerns. However, you can still adjust between 0% and 15% on the incline, and 0% and 3% on the decline.
Running Surface - People will long strides rejoice! The 2450 has the longest and widest belt of all the NordicTrack models. The 22" X 60" tread is 2-ply, reducing friction for a quieter, smoother workout.
Footprint (Folded) - This model folds to provide extra space when not in use.
Footprint (In Use) - As a commercial treadmill, the footprint is larger than some machines, measuring 72.25" L x 34" W x 61" H.

Cushioning - Adjust the cushioning to meet your needs with RunnerFlex. One half turn offers greater cushioning to reduce impact on joints and muscles, minimizing the risk of injury. Another half turn provides a harder, smoother surface that simulates road running.
