NordicTrack x11i Incline Trainer Review & Ratings

Share our review of the NordicTrack x11i Incline Trainer treadmill


NordicTrack x11i ConsoleThe NordicTrack x11i Incline Trainer is the new incline model for 2012. Each year NordicTrack continually improves upon their already great models. The x9i was a great hit last year and the x11i sounds like it will be a great hit this year. The x11i's motor has been improved to an incredible 3.8 CHP DURX™ Commercial Pro motor. This grade of engine for a treadmill makes for an extremely smooth and consistent workout. One of the biggest improvements made in the x11i is the tread belt size. Incline trainers naturally have a need for more running room because of the degree and angle of their inclination. The x11i fixes this issue by making a 22" x 62" running belt. The running space on the x9i was already extra long and great, but with the x11i's belt, you get extra long and extra wide!

If you are not familiar with incline trainers there are some big advantages that they can offer you over a normal treadmill. Incline trainers from NordicTrack are able to incline up to a whopping 40%. At this degree of incline someone running on the treadmill will burn five times the calories than someone running on a flat surface. Another advantage is that a 40% incline makes for a more realistic and fun iFit Live experience. When you see a hill coming in your display on iFit Live you will find the treadmill inclining all the way up. The x11i of course comes with the iFit Live application and also has access over 44 built-in workouts.

The x11i improves the x9i's screen display a good three inches. The 10" full-color, touch screen, iFit Tablet has a browser powered by Android that you can use to surf the web, watch movies, or run iFit Live on. There is great program on the x11i called Set-A-Goal Workout Center which helps you train for competitions with its custom workouts made just for you. You can just put in your distance, time or calorie target and the Incline Trainer X11i adjusts your incline, decline and speed so you accomplish your goal. This is a fun feature to use to improve and keep track of your records and fitness. 

Along with all these cool features the x11i comes with your typical heart rate monitors, workout fans, iPod ports, and 1-touch controls for incline and speed. The treadmill's deck has a weight capacity of 375 lbs and also has the unique feature of declining up to 6%. 

NordicTrack has the best incline trainers and the only one that can compete with them are themselves. The improvements made to the motor, screen, tread belt, and features on the x11i make this treadmill a luxury item for cheap. The x9i is still a great buy, but if you want the best home incline treadmill the x11i takes the cake.

The NordicTrack x11i Incline Trainer is the best incline treadmill on the market thus far and has amazing specs and features. It is relatively cheap when you compare it to treadmills that have the same specs and features. This is a great buy and is sure to be a big hit this year.
