The NordicTrack A2105 Treadmill – Not a Runner’s Treadmill

The NordicTrack A2105 treadmill is made by ICON Health & Fitness, who bought the brand after the original company went bankrupt.

Since the name has been around since the days of the ski machine, you would probably expect its treadmills to be quality machines.

NordicTrack does have some good models in its line up, but the A2105 treadmill isn’t one of them.

Let's take a closer look at this machine to see what it's all about...

A2015 - The Machine

The NordicTrack A2105 treadmill sells for around $1,099 MSRP but we’ve seen it for $600 to $700 when it's on sale.

Its console includes a user weight input, a Grafixx™ display, Light Touch™ controls.  It can even generate stats for up to two users compiling daily, weekly, monthly and yearly results.

Now that’s something you’ve never seen before in a budget treadmill.

Here are the most important specs...

NordicTrack A2105 Treadmill

  • Heart rate monitor
  • 300 lbs. max. user weight

  • Impact reducing cushioning
  • Lifetime frame, 12-year motor warranty

The Buzz

UPDATE:  The A2105 has been discontinued and replaced by newer, more advanced treadmills.

You can check out the latest NordicTrack treadmills on the company site to see the new machines on sale.

The closest current offering is the C700, which is the entry level model in the series.  This one is a big step up from the A2105, with a stronger motor, more built in workout programs and a much stronger warranty...a high improvement.

You can read our expert reviews to find out more about the NordicTrack brand in general and all of the latest models.  We break down the entire series for you to help you choose the ideal one for your home gym.

One of the strongest features of the NordicTrack A2105 treadmill is the cushioning on the deck. It's amazingly comfortable to walk on - though experts agree that users shouldn’t consider doing more than just walking on the machine; it’s not much of a runner’s treadmill.

The rest of the NordicTrack A2105 is not as mechanically sound, and its weakest areas are in reliability and overall quality. If things do break, that’s when the headache begins.

Many industry insiders will often note that NordicTracks are notoriously more expensive to repair than other treadmill brands made by Icon Fitness.

Small users can be well satisfied with the performance of this machine. As with many budget models, they can work flawlessly for many years if the user is of average weight and height, or tends not to pound on it with regular intense workouts.

This NordicTrack A2105 falls in that category. This has been said over and over again, but heavier users and runners must purchase a better quality treadmill or you’re wasting your money.

NordicTrack A2105 Review - Bottom Line

The NordicTrack A2105 isn’t a bad treadmill for the sale price but it wouldn’t be our first pick when compared to “best buy” models in the same price range.

It has a ton of nice features and graphics, it’s loaded with bells and whistles, but the quality just isn’t there.

For our money, we’d go with the company's C Series models (C700 or C990) with their bigger motor and outstanding warranty.

You get more for your money compared to the NordicTrack A2105 treadmill.

Editor's Note:  As the A2105 is no longer being sold, definitely look at the  newer models in Nordictrack's lineup.  They have some great sales going on so you can save a good deal of money on a newer, more advanced treadmill.
