The NordicTrack C2200 Treadmill - a Budget-Priced Starter Model
The NordicTrack C2200 treadmill is another budget model from the dynasty of Icon Fitness, the leading manufacturer of treadmills in the US. This model is suitable for light walking and sells for around $700.
(This model has been discontinued)
The NordicTrack C2200 treadmill offers all the usual readouts in its large 7” x 10” matrix display (speed, incline, pace, time, segment time, distance, carbs burned, calories burned, and pulse) in addition to hand grip heart monitors, which are pretty much standard on treadmills over $1000 but not often seen on budget models such as the NordicTrack C2200. Let’s look at the specs on this little workhorse:
- 2.25 HP motor
- 10 mph max. speed
- 12% max. incline
- 20" x 55" running area
- 10 workout programs (8 pre-set, 2 heart)
- Heart rate monitor, heart rate control
- Built-in cooling fan
- 300 lbs. max. user weight
- Lifetime warranty on motor, 10 years frame
- 1 year warranty on parts and labor
Fitness pros agree that the NordicTrack C2200 home treadmill has great features and a solid overall design. For this low price, the workout programs (including hill climbing, intervals, and calorie burning) should hold your interest and the speed and incline buttons on each side of the display allow you to punch in your favorite walking speed or incline rate without having to hold a button down to scroll to it.

Owners like that this is a lot of treadmill for a little money. In addition to the specs listed above, the NordicTrack C2200 also has one touch speed and incline control, a carb counter, and the Odometer with MyMiles™ Tracker.
What We Say
While it’s too bad the company will be eliminating the NordicTrack C2200 model, there are several other treadmills within this price range that are suitable alternatives, such as the C2300 which cost slightly more but has a couple more programs and a bigger motor. Overall though, don’t be lured by the price here if your long-range goal is to maximize benefits from a treadmill workout as you progress from walking to jogging to running in your fitness program.
The NordicTrack C2200 treadmill is a machine for walking only. If you plan to take up jogging once you drop some weight, this treadmill is not for you. If this sounds like you, plan your fitness regime accordingly and move up at least to the $1000 to $1500 class of treadmills.
