The NordicTrack T7 si Treadmill Offers Great Value - Recommended

Need motivation to workout? The NordicTrack T7 si treadmill is just the ticket if you are in the market for a budget priced machine that comes with everything you desire to begin a fun and inspiring exercise regime at home. Made by ICON Fitness, this model offers great value as well as advanced programming to get your butt in shape.

The Machine

The NordicTrack T7 si treadmill has a console with 10 buttons on each side to control speed and incline with just one touch. If you’ve ever been frustrated on a treadmill scrolling through up/down levels, and the button becomes sensitive and the machine leaps from 1mph to 4 mph, then you’ll appreciate individual 1-Touch buttons.

The list of features of the NordicTrack T7 si includes:

The Buzz

Fitness trainers and experts point out that NordicTrack has put a lot of quality features in the T7 si treadmill including a decent motor, lifetime motor warranty, 10% incline, hand grip HR monitors, and a large 325-lb user capacity. They especially like the adjustable cushioning on the deck which reduces impact on your ankles and knees by up to 33%. The adjustability is found in the patented DuraStride™ deck which has an isolator that can be moved to suit your preference. The user can choose a harder workout platform or a softer one that’s easy on the joints. These types of advanced features are usually not found on treadmills priced at under $1000.

UPDATE:  The NordicTrack T7 si has been discontinued.  For similar models take a look at the new C Series treadmills from NordicTrack and find the one that's right for you.

Consumers are calling this machine “a great deal.” Though the NordicTrack T7si treadmill is not a trainer for marathon runners, it will easily handle a 200-pound man who wants to run for a portion of his workout hour. The unit is solid with no shaking of the console, and it offers enough entertainment goodies (iPod® plug-in port, upgraded premium speakers, iFit® compatible) to keep you motivated as well as distracted during your workout.

What We Say

This machine sells for $799? That’s incredible considering that the NordicTrack T7si not only looks like a treadmill that would cost at least twice that amount. It feels solid for a budget machine, with no vibration while running, and the features are exciting. You’ll love the high-resolution display console, the overall construction and styling, the adjustable deck cushioning, 1-touch buttons, great speakers and fan, decent motor … just too many good points to name. We are hard to please when we do treadmill reviews on sub-$800 units, but the NordicTrack T7si treadmill is an impressive, value-driven machine. Recommended.
