The NordicTrack C700 treadmill is a capable machine for entry level or moderate users who like a few extra features that keep boredom at bay and has a surprisingly durable motor for a treadmill in the under $1000 range.
The C700 has a respectable 24 workout programs and a 6" backlit console that gives you the standard information, such as time, speed, calories burned, heart rate and distance traveled. It also has a ¼ mile track graphics feature showing your progress.
The specs for the NordicTrack C700 treadmill are:
The NordicTrack C series remains popular, but the NordicTrack C700 treadmill gets mixed reviews. Some people admit that you're getting a good machine and adequate variety of workouts at a great price when you buy it on sale. Although it lists at $1,499 it's usually on sale for $799, which is a bargain for a machine that works this well. Some users complain that the motor is a bit louder than what they're used to at the gym, but the gym probably has treadmills that cost thousands of dollars. Some users were disappointed that the deck is a few inches shorter, the programs weren't as varied and the sound system isn't as good as on the NordicTrack Elite series, but you're getting what you pay for.
What We Say
The NordicTrack C700 treadmill's 2.75 continuous hp motor is surprisingly durable and carries a lifetime warranty, but it is a bit noisier than what you'll typically find in a NordicTrack machine. Of course, on sale you can get this machine for just under $800 and still get two dozen different workout programs, which isn't shabby. The weight limit has dropped slightly to 350 pounds and the warranty is only 2 years for parts and 1 year for labor, but this machine holds its own when compared to others at this price point, particularly since you can subscribe to and use iFit if you like, giving you practically endless workout options for far less than the cost of a gym membership.
