Best Features

Tons of Workouts

A total of 38 built-in workout apps are available and they range from calorie burning to heart rate control to interval training to speed workouts.

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 also features unlimited professional trainer designed iFit Coach workouts that you can access right on the machine itself.

You can literally do a different workout every single day, from the very basic to the very intense, and everything in between.

Enhanced HD Display

The Commercial 1750 has a brand new 7″ Smart HD web-enabled touchscreen with all of the relevant workout stats on a clear, bright enhanced display.

Adjustments are quick and easy to make with the touch of a button, which means more time for focusing on your workout and less on changing speed and incline.

Heart Rate Monitoring

A nice feature on the Commercial 1750 that you don’t typically find on a treadmill at this price level is wireless heart rate monitoring in addition to the typical pulse grip capability.

The 1750 includes a free Bluetooth wireless chest strap that gives you more accurate readings, keeping you in your ideal zone throughout your workouts.

iFit Coach Technology

As we mentioned above, the Commercial 1750 comes with the latest version of the company’s popular program, now called iFit Coach. You can tap into a library of workouts, track and share your results with friends and choose a location anywhere in the world with Google maps and it’s as if you are working out there.

iFit does require a subscription fee, but it’s well worth it for all of the features and capabilities that it offers.

Power Incline and Decline

The NordicTrack 1750 gives you a generous 15 degrees of power incline to choose from, plus up to 3 degrees of decline. This allows you to target different muscle groups effectively, and changes up your workouts to give you a real challenge.

Decline capability is typically only found on much more expensive treadmills, so having this added feature is a real benefit.

Foldable & Space Saving

The 1750 features SpaceSaver design with easy folding, so after your workout you can quickly and easily fold up the machine and store it away until the next session.

Other Great Features

The features are nearly endless on this one. On top of everything we mention above you also get a powerful 3.6 CHP motor, a generously sized deck with Runners Flex cushioning, adjustable tablet holder, DualBreeze fans, music/speakers, integrated accessory tray and a very generous warranty to back it all up.

Conclusions

Pros

The new upgraded NordicTrack Commercial 1750 has a lot of people talking, and the buzz is definitely justifiable.

We’ve been keeping an eye on new releases to see who’s made a real effort to fit a motivated runner’s demands, and the 1750 seems to be fitting the bill.

There’s the impressive, endless workout catalog between the built in ones and those you can access via iFit Coach.

Taller joggers and runners will be comfortable running on the large 22″ x 60″ belt, as will users who want to lose a little extra weight.

Workout space is a pretty big deal when it comes to treadmills…you’re already exerting lots of sweat and effort, the last thing you want is to limit yourself to a narrow belt. That’s no problem with the 1750.

Users who enjoy setting goals, whether it is losing weight or training for marathons, can set goals such as pace, time, distance or number of calories.

Speed and incline adjustments are easy to make during your workout, which is a nice break from other machines. The bright console has a large display and a numeric keypad which make readings and adjustments easy, a feature we make most use of during high incline and speed workouts.

Cooling fans are a must for a treadmill built with high intensity in mind, which is why there are 2 fans ready for easy cooling. We honestly can’t stress enough how much we appreciate cooling off when the going gets tough on the running belt.

If entertainment is what gets you through workouts, there’s a sound system to play your favorite tunes. Of course you can surf the web, watch videos or go to your social pages on the internet-ready Smart HD touch screen.

There’s also an adjustable cushioning system that soaks up all shock on your joints, but if you’d rather feel as if you’re running on the road, simply turn off the extra cushioning.

The warranty is one of the best in its class, and the iFit Coach technology is the best version of the program we’ve seen to date.

Cons

There aren’t too many negatives when it comes to the new NordicTrack Commercial 1750. If we had to pick something it would be that you do have to pay a yearly membership for iFit Coach.

Last we checked, it was about $12 a month, but it is well worth it for all of the features it offers, which include the extra workouts, tracking, sharing, goal setting, Google maps and diet plans.

Summary

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 is a an incredible treadmill, and has been our top pick in several categories, including Best Overall Treadmill, for several years now.

More serious runners might want to take a look at the NordicTrack Commercial 2450, with a stronger 4.0 CHP motor plus a 10″ touch screen, or the top-of-the-line 2950, with an even more powerful motor and adjustable uprights.

Yet if you’re not planning to run the Boston marathon, we enthusiastically recommend the new Commercial 1750, a $1,499 (on sale) feature-packed treadmill that is sure to please.

    How does this compare to the C1650?

  2. admin says:

    The NordicTrack C1650 is the top level model in the more affordable C Series, while the Commercial 1750 is the base model in the upper-end Commercial Series. Both are great treadmills, but the Commercial series is more durable, closer to something you would find at the gym. The 1750 has a stronger motor, more workouts, more incline, wider deck and also decline capability that the 1650 does not have.

    Is this model suitable to calorie burn walking and jogging? I can’t run too fast, because I have some problem with my back.

  4. admin says:

    Absolutely. It has good cushioning to help reduce impact and you can either walk or jog manually or choose one of the many built in workouts. With iFit, you can choose any destination worldwide via Google maps and it’s as if you are actually working out there. Pretty cool.
