Best Features

Huge Vibrant Display

Of course it is all about the workout. But we had to start off with mention of the new 22″ Smart HD Touch Screen Display. It is one of the largest screens we have ever seen on a treadmill, and the picture is crystal clear and vibrant.

It offers all of the relevant workout stats, and you can go online or tap into the endless workouts of iFit Coach technology, including Google maps putting you anywhere in the world you choose to train. Seeing it unfold right in from of you on such a large screen is a real treat.

Incline/Decline Capability

One of the most attractive features of the NordicTrack X22i is the fact that it not only inclines up to 40%, but also declines up to -6%.

With this flexibility you can really target all the different muscle groups in your legs, giving you an extremely challenging workout. Not to mention the huge amount of calories that you burn at the highest incline levels.

Note that all of the Incline Trainers, including the X11i and X9i, now offer the same -6% decline.

Upper Body Workouts With Dumbbells

Another unique feature on the X22i is a set of 25 pound SpeedWeight adjustable dumbbells, also a first for the company and present on the other models as well.

The built in personal trainer actually guides you through dumbbell workouts for your entire body, adding a new dimension that you don’t typically get with a treadmill workout.

There is a stand on either side of the machine to place the weights on between sets.

iFit Coach Technology

As we mention above, the X22i is equipped with the latest version of ICON Fitness’ popular program, iFit Coach.

Choose from a library of customized workouts and work out anywhere in the world with Google maps. You can watch daily videos, get meal programs to help you reach your weight loss goals and you even get a free wearable device to track all of your activity.

Other Great Features

The X22i Incline Trainer also has a powerful 4.25 CHP motor, a generously sized 22″ x 60″ deck, a music port, wireless and grip heart rate monitoring with chest strap included, easy assembly, dual AutoBreeze fans and special advanced cushioning, as well as a very generous warranty.

Conclusions

Pros

There are a lot of pros on this machine, as you can see from the list of best features above.

You get a strong motor, incline, decline, tons of workouts, a huge touch screen display, iFit Coach technology, good cushioning, large deck and dumbbells for a full body workout.

There really is nothing missing from the X22i, as they have packed everything you could ever want in a treadmill into this one.

Cons

There are not to many drawbacks to mention here. If we had to mention something, it would probably be the price tag, which may be out of reach for most people.

The sale price is around $2,999, which is probably very good given all of the features and capabilities, but it is still a lot of money for a treadmill.

You can save a little money with the X11i and X9i, so definitely look at those models as well.

Summary

The new 2017 NordicTrack X22i is a real beast of a machine, and the new screen size is really something special. It is like having a flat screen TV built right into the treadmill.

Although it is on the expensive side, with incline, decline, iFit and everything else, it’s well worth it if you have the money.
