The NordicTrack Elite 9700 Pro is one of the best treadmills on the market and is also one of NordicTrack's most expensive treadmills at regular cost. The quality of this machine however, makes its value very reasonable. You'll feel the difference when you run on it. First of all, imagine a 4.0 CHP motor. With a motor like that anything is possible. Say goodbye to motor burn outs, bogging, breaking down, or other motor problems. This size motor will have no problem with pretty much any size runner. The treadmill is absolutely meant for heavy and intense runners to be able to use and abuse until their legs fall off. The deck is 2" wider than the standard full sized deck measuring out to 22" x 60". The weight capacity is rated at 375 lbs which will handle the vast majority.
Now, to show off the features it's got. Not only is this one of the strongest home treadmills out there, it's one of the most decked out, if not the most. The first thing you'll notice is the amazing console. The console has a built in 10" full color touch screen web browser display. Run while you read news, watch videos, or do whatever else you like to do online. Imagine flipping on Hulu and watching your favorite TV show while you run..But that's not the best part in. The console is integrated with iFit Live and Google maps. It lets you trace out any trail in the world, and it uses Google Maps' calculations of the terrain to automatically adjust your treadmill's incline to the real world terrain. Ifit tracks all your progress and even lets you train to a huge plethora of built in workouts, compete against others, or have personal trainers coach you through the built in speakers. Not bad eh? There's more to it, but that's my favorite part.
The Cushioning of the treadmill is absolutely comfortable as can be. The treadmill feels as solid as a rock, and makes minimal noise. Basically everything you would want in a home treadmill is spelled out in this treadmill. Check out the specs below for more detailed info on it.
