The iFit programs, which can be added to the workout queue - just need to click join from the iFit library -, include weight loss (the 30 days with Jillian Michaels was by far my favorite as it controlled treadmill speed as well), and workouts on trails, parks, states and cities all over the world by using google maps integration (the street view option is what I use). What makes this special, is that the treadmill automatically raises the incline when going up hill. This feature keeps the workouts both interesting and challenging. The only thing that would make it a home run would be if more of the workouts also controlled the treadmill speed like the Jillian Michaels workout.
I am 5'6" so the fan actually lines up perfectly for me. I know that others have complained that it blows either over their head or on their chest. The controls are also situated in a perfect place to easily adjust speed or incline as necessary. The treadmill can also be folded up with the aid of hydraulics. A great, space savings feature and makes it easy to move as well.
I opted to get the assembly service as the treadmill is quite heavy and would be incredibly difficult to set up myself. The 2 gentlemen wound up taking over 2 hours to put it together, but I'm happy to say that they did a great job.
Overall it's a great treadmill that I highly recommend.
The unit came in perfect condition. No scratches, dings or dents.
I paid Amazon to set it up and it was worth it. It took two experienced techs almost 45 minutes to put it together. I watched them do the work and they were moving pretty quickly. Some of the assembly has parts being removed from other parts and then reattached later. Other parts require an extra set of hands to hold it in place.
It works pretty well. The setup doesn't tell you why you are not able to connect to a network, it just says that it is disconnected. I re-entered the password and then everything worked. It took another ten minutes for a firmware update. It hasn't had any problems since it connected to the network.
It's built right into the treadmill, but you need to register on ifit.com and it's a paid service. This is pretty irritating because you think that you are getting iFit access included. It costs about $99 for a year of the service and the hidden cost kind of sucks. The unit includes 3 of the google maps workouts and the feature is really cool. It makes the treadmill feel more like walking in the real world instead of a hamster wheel. Yet you can't do any tracking until you pay for the service.
It is not so great at less than 2.5mph. The treadmill slows down and then speeds up with each step.
It moves right along once it gets beyond 2.5mph. No slowdowns.
Inclines work great. It's pretty smooth and fast.
This I like:
The track is pretty good, depending on the setting, it can be nice and soft so it reduces the strain on the knees. Its pretty long so you never feel like you're about to fall off.
For a treadmill, the speakers are pretty decent, I used them a few times (see cons for limitations).
Touch screen is very responsive, much like a phone or a tablet. Its not pressure activated, but capacitive.
Runs very well at or above 3mph. (Runs very well at all speeds now. See FW update notes for 04/25/2016 near the bottom.)
This I don't like:
No Adjustable Air deflectors (See 2 & 6 Month updates below) - The fan blows in a fixed position and cannot be adjusted to blow higher or lower. This might be OK, but the fixed position is much too high. I can't walk faster than 2mph if I want to have the fan blow on my face, anything faster and my stride is too large and I hit the motor cover at the front of the track. Absolutely useless. I'm a 5'10" male with average proportions, my 5'8" girlfriend has the same issue.
Ifit - It sucks. If you're not paying for it, it's not just useless, but it gets in the way. I would've been way more happy if treadmill just came with some software that doesn't try to sync up to some online BS service. I'd be perfectly happy if it just kept track of all the workouts offline and gave you details. Hell, ideally it would just sync up to one of the many free services out there. But IFIT is possibly the worst possible choice they could've made. Their web interface sucks, it doesn't connect with any others services, its just pure garbage.
This treadmill basically has a full Android OS as its base and then autostarts to the Ifit app. They could've done so much with this. Imagine being able to download and use other apps for the play store (music apps, fitness apps, entertainment apps, etc...) instead of being limited to the pure garbage that is IFIT. Totally wasted potential here, makes really sad :(
The console is a little too far forward, if I'm walking at 3mph, I find I really have to stretch forward to reach the touch screen or my feet start to hit the treadmill track cover at the front of the track. I'm 5'10", so I don't think I'm unreasonably proportioned. Every other treadmill I've used, I've had no problems with the console being too far forward.
The built in heartrate monitor is pretty terrible - both poorly positioned and very inaccurate. Its locate rather low, I have to hunch over a bit to reach it. Again I'm 5'10", fairly average, shouldn't have to be doing this. Its typically reading my heartrate as half of what my chest strap reads it. I guess it just skips every other beat :-\
I cannot for the life of me figure out how to connect my chest strap heartrate monitor to this thing. Seems like their support is only available at times when I'm working, so I've been having trouble getting in touch with them. Not a big deal. Not sure that I care to have my heartrate pulled into their terrible IFIT app anyway.
All-in-all, unless you plan for pay for IFIT, this will just be another dumb treadmill. Expect to have all the basics of any traditional treadmill. Speed control, incline control, and distance tracking. But of course, instead of having large segmented LED display for your stats, you get a tiny 7inch screen on which the statistics get printed in a small corner with a small font. If you have poor eyesight, that might be real irritating.
I think its the most ridiculous thing to charge $100/year for a service which should've come free with a $1000 treadmill, so I would never pay to explore the features one gets with IFIT. Others may or may not write reviews about what you get from the IFIT subscriptions, so look there for more details.
2 Month Update:
Its held up very well so far, I've had no issues at all. Everything feels as solid as the day I put it together and there have been no surprise discoveries with it. I did notice some track slippage and the track being offset from the center at some point, but that was easily fixed by adjusting the tension screws at the back of the track. Its was very easy and has been running well since.
As others have already mentioned, the fan is essentially useless, it blows way over my head when running, which again is very disappointing. My basement is fairly cool, so I haven't found the lack of fanning to be an issue for me at all (yet).
Nearly every treadmill I've ever seen has had adjustable air deflectors, I'm not sure why NordicTrack chose not to include them on this model... It certainly wasn't a cost driven decision, so I can only speculate that they've made a lot of small decisions so that it leaves room for higher end models to show improvement over cheaper models. Something like: "$1400 model is more ergonomic, has adjustable fan, and a working heart rate monitor." While all of those upgrades carry almost no associated cost of production.
This leaves me with a really bad taste in my mouth. It just shows that NordicTrack is not trying to provide the best product they can for a given price range, but rather they are just trying to setup their marketing team for up-sales to more expensive models.
FW Update (04/25/2016) note:
Treadmill received a FW update automatically on 04/25/2016 and that has made a huge difference in how well it runs at slow speeds. It use to be that below 3mph it was very jerky. You can feel motor spinning up and slowing down. All that is gone now, the track runs very smoothly at low speeds (below 3mph) and it seems like the motor is not turning on and off, but stays constantly on at a slower speed. I think they've just retuned their PID algorithm to handle slow speeds better. I still feel like they should've had it correct right off the bat, its not rocket science, but the fact that they are actually fixing problems is really great.
6 Month Update:
Alright, as the summer is heating up and so is my basement. The lack of adjustable air deflectors is now my #1 complaint about this threadmill. It just blows way over my head when I'm running centered on the track, might as well not exist at all. (See 2 Month update for longer discussion on this.)
Other than that, the threadmill is holding up very well. I've been running about 20miles/week on it. No visible wear and tear, nothing appears to be loosening over time.
