The Buzz

The brand new NordicTrack Commercial 1750 treadmill has an upgraded 3.5 CHP motor that delivers superior performance without the typical noise that you find on other machines.

The unique Runner's Flex Cushioning reduces impact on your joints by 15% to 33% with the simple change of the moveable isolator under the belt.  So whether you like maximum cushioning or you'd prefer to mimic an outdoor running experience, there's a perfect setting for you.

One of the unique features on the Commercial 1750 is both incline and decline capability, which is something you definitely don't find often, especially in this price category.  

This allows you to target muscles that you typically wouldn't be able to, enhancing the overall effectiveness of your workouts. It mimics running downhill, which is something you don't typically do on a treadmill.

The NordicTrack 1750 also features 2.5" precision machined and sealed rollers, and a 20" x 60" commercial tread belt textured on the design of an outdoor running track. There is plenty of room to walk, jog and run, even for taller users who might otherwise feel cramped.

The console features premium audio speakers and Bluetooth headphones so you can listen to music while you walk, jog or run.

The motor is plenty powerful, but if you think you need even more you can look at the NordicTrack 2450.  But the 1750 remains the most popular treadmill in the NordicTrack lineup, due to its perfect combination of features and capabilities for the price.

New on the latest model is the 14" tilt & pivot HD touchscreen, allowing you to tap into the company's built-in iFit workout technology.  It's a nice upgrade from the basic LCD monitors found on most treadmills in this price range (although some brands are jumping on the touch screen bandwagon), and makes for a much more immersive experience.

The new iFit, the latest version of the company's interactive training program, gives you an endless array of additional workouts to choose from, whether you're a beginner, a serious runner or anything in between. There are on demand as well as live workouts, and you can use it on or off the treadmill, especially now that you can pivot and tilt the touch screen.

It also gives you workout tracking/sharing and Google map integration, allowing you to choose a destination anywhere in the world and watch it unfold in front of you.

Note that iFit does require a monthly or yearly membership fee, but it's definitely worth it for all that you are getting. The Google maps alone are worth the price, as you can literally choose any destination worldwide and it's as if you are there running.  The machine automatically adjusts to the terrain you choose.

UPDATE: Currently you get a free iFit subscription for one month as part of your purchase.  So you can try it out at no cost, a great deal that may not last.

Overall the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 reviews have been emphatically positive for the price-to-value quality of this series.

And for the new year, the company has extended the warranty from 5 years frame to 10 years, a sign of the company's confidence in the quality of the machine.  It's always a good sign to see a stronger warranty.

Some of the notable extras include Space Saver easy folding capability,   Dual AutoBreeze workout fans, two 3" amplified speakers, accessory tray and pivoting tablet holder.

How Does the Commercial 1750 Compare to the Other NordicTrack Treadmills?

NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Console With iFit - 2023

NordicTrack currently offers three different lines of treadmills, besides the desk models.  

You have the EXP Series, the Commercial Series and the Incline Trainers.

The EXP Series is the most affordable line, ranging from about $1199 to $1499.  

You get decent motors, good cushioning, incline capability and grip heart rate monitoring.

The Commercial Series, including the new Commercial 1250, 1750, and top of the line 2450, is the company's flagship series.  

Ranging in price from about $1799 to $2499 depending on the current sale,  these treadmills include more powerful motors, more advanced cushioning, more incline levels and 3% decline capability, which is rare to find at this price point.

The Commercial 1250 has a 10" touch screen, 3.0 CHP motor, 20" x 60" belt with decline to -3% and incline to 12%.

The Commercial 1750 has been one of our top picks for many years due to its combination of features and capabilities.  It's the perfect home treadmill, and for the price it can't be beat. It improves upon the 1250 with a 14" touch screen, 3.5 CHP motor and incline up to 15%.

The Commercial 2450 gives you a little more power with a 3.6 CHP motor, a little better cushioning as well as the larger 22" touch screen. 

The 2950 improves upon the 2450 the same way, with the same 22" Smart HD touch screen like you'll find on the Incline Trainer X22i.

(Note that the 2950 was recently discontinued)

The Incline Trainers, including the X22i and X32i, range in price from $2999 to $3999, and offer many of the features and capabilities of the Commercial Series plus 40% incline capability and 6% decline. They also have the most advanced cushioning and strongest motors.

So which NordicTrack treadmill should you choose?  

As we mentioned, our favorite is the Commercial 1750, so you're on the right page here.  :)

The 2450 does give you more, but you don't necessarily need the additional features unless you want a larger touch screen or there will be multiple users hitting the machines hard every day.

If you want to save money look at the EXP Series models, but they are definitely a step down from the 1750 and other Commercial treadmills feature wise.

The Incline Trainers are great as well, but unless you are going to take advantage of the heavy incline and decline, they're not going to be worth the jump in price.

Commercial 1750 vs Sole F80 vs ProForm Pro 2000

NordicTrack 1750 - Incline and Decline Capability

We get a lot of questions about the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 vs the Sole F80 vs the ProForm 2000, two other very popular treadmills that are similarly priced.  You may have come across these model while searching for reviews.

All are very good choices, and it comes down to picking the one that has the features that appeal most to you.

They all cost around $1799-$2299 depending on what kind of sales the companies are running.  All three have large decks with incline capability.  All also fold with the touch of a button, and have relatively strong warranties.

OK great but how are they different?  We were getting to that...

The Commercial 1750 excels in some areas:

  • It has decline capability
  • It has more workouts
  • It has a larger 14" touch screen
  • It has iFit technology

The Sole F80 excels in some areas:

  • It has a more advanced cushioning system
  • It has a higher max weight capacity (375 lbs. vs 300 lbs.)
  • It has a larger running surface (22" x 60")
  • It now has a touchscreen console
  • It has a stronger warranty. Lifetime frame, motor and deck

The ProForm Pro 2000 excels in some areas:

  • It has decline capability
  • It has more workouts
  • It has a 10" touch screen
  • It has iFit technology

So when it comes to the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 vs the Sole F80 and the ProForm Pro 2000, the 1750 has the others beat in many categories, including touch screen size and decline capability.

However, NordicTrack and ProForm are both made by the same company, so those two treadmills are very similar in many ways, with the 1750 slightly edging out the Pro 2000.

However, when it comes to durability and cushioning, the Sole F80 comes out ahead, with a more impact-reducing belt and the capability of handling heavier loads/workouts.

NordicTrack 1750 Review - Bottom Line

This updated treadmill is a winner, making our Best Buy list for the third year in a row.

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 is the same outstanding treadmill that has been a top seller for the company for many years, only better with the latest improvements.

You'll be hard pressed to find a better treadmill for under $2000, as very few other machines will give you a strong motor, incline, decline, advanced cushioning, tracking capability, touch screen and internet.  

The Sole F80 comes very close, but it doesn't give you all of these extras.

Not to mention iFit , which is unique to NordicTrack and ProForm treadmills.  

To sweeten the deal, the company is offering free shipping and 30 day money back guarantee

With these kinds of extras, the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 treadmill is definitely a Great Buy.
