Treadmill Review

The NordicTrack T 7.5 S is an updated replacement for the NordicTrack C990, with new features and improved specs while still maintaining an affordable price tag. Many of the residential quality features have been swapped out in the T 7.5 S, providing you instead with things such as a 3.0 CHP commercial plus motor, 50 built-in workout programs, Bluetooth-enabled speakers, and other high-quality features.


So, if you had been a fan of the C series treadmills and had been considering the C990, our treadmill experts here at Treadmill Reviews would definitely recommend you check out the T 7.5 S as an affordable and fully upgraded treadmill option for your home.


Price

The price on the T 7.5 S often shifts a few hundred up and down, but generally costs $1,099.

The T 7.5 S Is Built For Users who:

  • Need engaging treadmill features - Let’s face it, a lot of treadmills become dusty, unused purchases because they lack the ability to draw you in. With the T 7.5 S, you can enjoy 50 built-in exercise programs as well as the excellent iFit Coach training programs, which allow you to workout with high-energy trainers who will keep your motivation high and your fitness on track.
  • Want an affordable treadmill without sacrificing excellence - Investing in your health and fitness doesn’t have to break the bank, but you also don’t have to settle for a cheap treadmill that will break down in a few months. By choosing the T 7.5 S, you can enjoy an affordable treadmill whose quality you can feel confident in.
  • Are looking to walk or jog - With the 3.0 CHP commercial motor, you can easily walk or jog on the T 7.5 S. This treadmill will be up for some light running, but if you are a serious runner, it may not be the right treadmill for you.

Main Specs - 8/10

Specs “Quick Review”:
  • Motor Size: 3.0 CHP
  • Running Area: 20” W x 60” L
  • Weight Capacity: 300 lbs
  • Folding: Yes
  • Footprint In Use (W, L, H): 35.5” x 78.5” x 59”
  • Incline Range: 0% to 12%
  • Max Speed: 12 MPH
  • Treadmill Best For: Walkers, Joggers
  • Electrical Requirements: 120V

Motor Size - Equipped in the T 7.5 S is a commercial plus 3.0 CHP DurX motor. This motor runs relatively quietly, allowing you to workout without disturbing family members or neighbors.

Running Area - Standard for quality treadmills in this price range, the T 7.5 S treadmill running area measure 20” wide and 60” long.

Weight Capacity - The max weight capacity for the T 7.5 S is 300 lbs. If you are looking for higher weight capacity without crazy high prices, SOLE treadmills are a good option.

Folding - You can fold up the T 7.5 S easily, thanks to the hydraulic easy lift system. This lift system also allows you to lock the deck in the upright position by simply raising the deck high enough. The deck can be released with the press of the lever and can lower down hands-free to the floor.

Space / Footprint - Measuring 35.5” wide, 78.5” long, and 59” tall, the T 7.5 S is a fairly compact treadmill. While the length of this treadmill may mean you need to carefully measure the space you are intending to place it, the T 7.5 S can compactly fold up out of the way when not in use.

Max Speed - Reach a top speed of 12 MPH on the T 7.5 S. We don’t recommend going to this speed too often on this treadmill, as the pounding workout may wear it down faster.

Incline - The available incline range on the T 7.5 S is 0% to 12%, which is enough range to ramp up your calorie burn. Other treadmills in this price range can often go up to 15% incline, so this slightly restricted range is a small mark against this treadmill.

Speakers - There are Bluetooth speakers under the touchscreen display so that you can sync your Bluetooth device up with the T 7.5 S. When synced, the sound clarity is better than when using the audio jack, which also comes with this treadmill.

Fans - Below the speakers, there is a strong fan built into the T 7.5 S, which can be set to automatically adjust to your workout intensity. You can also manually set it at multiple speed settings to keep you cool during your workout.

Heart Rate Monitoring - You can use the EKG handlebar grips to take a broad look at your heart rate when using the T 7.5 S. Like on all treadmills, these kinds of pulse grips are not overly accurate but can give you a ballpark estimate of your heart rate.
