The NordicTrack Incline Trainer X9i treadmill helps you get in the best shape of your life with an incline that adjusts up to 40% and a decline to 6%. If you are serious about your workouts and want to burn a ton of calories, this could just be the one for you.
The NordicTrack Incline Trainer X9i has a 10" touch screen console display including a full color built-in web browser Powered by Android, so you can surf the web or watch videos while you workout. Then, with a touch of a finger you can view your exercise stats for time, speed, distance, calories burned, pulse, and program settings.
The full specs of the NordicTrack X9i are:
The NordicTrack Incline Trainer X9i treadmill lets you choose from among 44 workout apps – 24 target programs based on calorie burn, intensity or incline goals, and another 20 iFit Live™ workouts that feature training with Jillian Michaels. With the Google Maps™ feature, you can virtually run on any city street or park path anywhere in the world. Note: the web browser feature requires a wireless network in your home.
It is a step up from the base X7i Incline Trainer, which has a 2.75 hp motor and only -3% decline capability. That model is also not web enabled for your reference.
The mechanical features on the NordicTrack X9i Interactive include a quiet and powerful 3.0 chp motor, a large 22" x 60" tread belt, two Autobreeze™ workout fans, Reflex cushioning with advance impact-absorption technology, 1-touch speed controls, heart rate sensors built into the handlebars, a free HR chest strap, two 3" speakers on the console, and a 350-lb user weight capacity.
The key feature of NordicTrack’s Interactive Trainer is the incline/decline ramp which works more effectively than standard treadmill inclines to strengthen the large muscles in your legs and trunk and will burn calories at a much more rapid rate - up to 5x the normal amount of calories burned by walking. The 6% decline (which it share with the up-level X11i model), combined with the interactive hill programs on iFit Live, adds variety and an exciting simulation of going up and down terrain.
While you might expect to pay about $4000 for a machine that does all this, the NordicTrack X9i Incline Trainer manages to do it all for under $2,000 on sale. Reviews by users indicate that users are happy with the expanded tread belt size (over the older X5i) so that you can really use it as a treadmill and not just as an incline trainer. We would normally be leery of a steep incline treadmill but Nordictrack proudly backs this machine with a very long lifetime motor warranty, as well as 5 years on parts, and 2 years for in-home labor. With that kind of backing, it looks like Nordictrack believes in the NordicTrack Incline Trainer X9i, and you should too.
