NordicTrack Commercial 2450 - Best Features
Enhanced Smart HD Display
The Commercial 2450 model improves upon the 1750 with a 10″ web-enabled Smart HD touch screen.
(Note that the new 1750 now has a 10″ touch display as well, replacing the previous 7″ one.)
Access the web and watch videos or use the integrated iFit Coach technology to simulate running around the world with Google maps.
You can check your workout stats such as calories burned, speed, distance, etc. and track your progress for added motivation.
Heart Rate Monitoring
Use the hand grip monitors or the included iFit Bluetooth wireless heart rate strap for more accuracy and measure your heart rate throughout your workout to ensure that you are in your ideal zone.
The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 comes with an impressive 40 built-in workouts, just like on the top of the line 2950 model, two more than the 1750 model, including calorie, heart rate, incline, intervals and speed.
You also have the option to use the full iFit Coach library of workouts, which includes an unlimited supply of exclusive workouts for you to choose from.
With iFit you can train 1 on 1 with trainers across the world or right in the studio like your favorite gym class.
Large Belt Size
The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 comes with one of the largest running belts on the market today: 22″ wide by 60″ long and well cushioned so you have plenty of space for your walks, jogs, and runs regardless of how tall you are.
Impressive Incline and Decline
With the 2450 you can set the incline up to 15% for a more intense workout, and even decline the machine up to 3%, something you don’t get elsewhere, especially at this price level.
Incline and decline training not only ramp up the cardio element but also target muscle groups in the lower body that you don’t normal hit with a treadmill.
In addition to everything above you get three auto-adjusting fans, an accessory tray, iPod music connection, one-touch control and SpaceSaver Technology to easily fold the treadmill up and store it wherever you want.
You won’t find many other treadmills in this price range with nearly as many features built in.
NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Review - Conclusion
There’s not much to complain about when it comes to the NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill, or any of the other Commercial series models that the company offers.
These are solid, well-built cardio machines that offer all of the bells and whistles typically reserved for more expensive treadmills.
The new version of iFit Coach, which does require a subscription fee (although the company sometimes gives you your first year free), gives plenty of workouts to choose from, tracking capability, nutrition suggestions and a lot more.
You can adjust the feel of the belt, mimicking running outside or softening it for minimal impact, again something you typically find on pricier treadmills from companies like TRUE.
This machine is quiet and strong, is web enabled and offers a nice size touch screen. The bottom line here is this treadmill offers everything you can ever need to ensure you will never be bored working out.
If you’re interested in a solid treadmill packed with features for under $2000, definitely check out the new NordicTrack Commercial 2450.
