Treadmill Review

Updated: 2-17-2017

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 has been updated for 2017, making it a more powerful fitness tool than ever. Any treadmill represents a significant investment in your health, and at $1499 the 1750 is no exception. However, with a 3.8 continuous horsepower motor, plus a generously-sized walking track, power incline of up to 15%, and an advanced cushioning system, the quality of this machine makes it stand out. And that’s not all. To keep you motivated - even entertained - during your workout, the Commercial 1750 features a 7” touchscreen display with 38 built-in workout programs, plus the ability to surf the web during your workout. You can also use it with your tablet or computer to access even more apps. Overall, we were pretty impressed with this machine, and we think you will be too.

Features 10/10

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 is set apart by both the features that you can see, and those you can’t. “Under the hood,” so to speak, you have a powerful motor, better-than-average incline and decline ability, state-of-the-art cushioning, and more. Up top, you get fun additions like a web-enabled touchscreen to help you stay connected, preloaded workouts, and iPod compatibility. We’ve considered the features, specs, and build quality to give you an overall score in each category. As you assess what’s important to you, we hope this information will help you determine how the functionality and longevity of the Commercial 1750 might fit your needs.

Motor Size - As stated, the motor boasts 3.8 CHP. But just because it's powerful doesn't mean it's loud. On the contrary, it's surprisingly quiet as treadmills go, which makes it easier to enjoy some of the other fun features.

Max Speed - If you're a competitive runner or love doing speed intervals, don't worry. The top speed of the Commercial 1750 is 12 mph, making it one of the fastest treadmills available. All it takes is one touch to adjust your speed.

Incline/Decline - The 1750 offers an incline of up to 15% - a little more than your average treadmill. Not only that, but those interested in a downhill effect can decline the deck by up to 3%. This helps users access different muscle groups, relieve joint pressure, and add variety to their workouts. Control your incline with a single touch.

Running Surface - The tread belt is plenty roomy at 60 x 22 inches, making it 2 inches wider than most treadmills. On the Commercial 1750, your workouts won't be limited by deck size.

Space-Saving Technology - EasyLift technology makes the Commercial 1750 simple to fold into a relatively compact size, despite the machine's heavy weight.

Footprint - While in use, the 1750 measures 76″ L x 38.5″ W x 73″ H. Not small, but definitely workable for most users.

Weight Capacity - The Commercial 1750 has a 300-lb user weight capacity, which is pretty standard for new treadmills.

Cushioning - NordicTrack's new cushioning system is designed to make workouts more comfortable, especially for runners. When active, it decreases the physical shock by approximately 30% – a pretty big difference. Users wishing to get the feel of outdoor asphalt can even turn the cushioning off.

As you can see, the features of the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 are pretty impressive. You have plenty of room to run, even with its space-saving design when folded. You also get a cushioned deck, highly-customizable incline, and a powerful motor with great speed capability. If comfort and versatility are important to you, you’ll get them both with this machine.

Tech Specs 10/10

Display - 7-inch web-enabled touchscreen with workout data, web browser and more. Keep an eye on your workout data, read the news, catch up on email and more while you work out. The display on the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 goes way beyond just going for a walk.

Workout Programs - The 1750 boasts 38 built-in workout programs, each one designed by trainers for anything from sprinting, to interval training, to maximum calorie burn and heart rate control. If that's not enough, connect your computer or tablet to access even more.

Apps - Use iFit (subscription required) to stream data right to your treadmill for personalized workouts. Use Google Mapping to experience the ups and downs of any geographical area. Connect your tablet or computer for access to even more.

Bluetooth - Not available on this machine.

But don’t let the fun features fool you. You also get great in-workout functionality with heart-rate monitoring, built-in workout programs, and 1-touch controls for speed and incline.
