Treadmill reviews are in agreement that this is a heavy, solid-built machine with great cushioning, a big motor, and superior components. While it isn’t a commercial club model, it comes pretty close. The NordicTrack Elite 7500 is definitely designed to be a runner’s machine with heavy use, and not as a walker’s treadmill. Walkers will get better value and save money by buying a NordicTrack in the $1000 range such as the NordicTrack A2550 Pro treadmill.
For the MSRP $2,999, there are better alternatives out there, but when its on sale between $1,499 to $1,999, the NordicTrack Elite 7500 offers decent value. Its outstanding features are the programs and the TV. While it compares favorably to others that dominate the $1500-$2000 range, it nevertheless remains a tough choice between this Nordictrack and at least three others: the Livestrong 16.9T treadmill, the Smooth 9.35HR, and the Sole S77.
Those machines may cost a bit more, but just remember that you must buy an extended warranty on the NordicTrack Elite 7500 Treadmill in order to match the 5 yr parts/2 labor of competitor models, and that will raise the final purchase price a few hundred dollars.
