Nordic Track Commercial 1750 – 2024 Model

$1,599

Made in China

This is the new Nordic Track 1750 (2024 version) we are testing.  Just for clarification we have also tested a previous, older version of the 1750 treadmill as well.  You can find that review here: https://bigguytreadmillreview.com/treadmills/nordictrack-1750-treadmill/

So… reviewing these Nordic Track Treadmills are always a treat.  It’s kind of like, what are we going to have to deal with now.  The first thing to know is that Nordic Track does not make a single commercial machine even though many of their products listed on the Nordic Track website refer to them as such.  They are not commercial.  When we called Nordic Track for clarification, the customer service rep’s response was because the product was featured in a tv commercial.  Wow, that is some shady stuff right there.  It is deliberately misleading, and I am not sure how they can get away with that.  I am sure when you are a billion-dollar business, you have a team of really good attorneys at your disposal.  Sad.

If you don’t want to pay $40 a month for the membership fee, do not buy this treadmill.  You will regret it. If you are ok with paying $40 a month, for the lifetime of the treadmill, then it will be a nice interactive experience with iFit.  But, you must know that there are other options.  There are 3rd party apps like Kino Maps, Zwift, Strava and now Peloton (and many more) that allow ANY treadmill with an FTMS Bluetooth Module embedded to connect through your own device.  Let that sink in. Use your own mobile device or tablet as your treadmill electronics display.  The app you download will interact with a FTMS Bluetooth treadmill and your tablet will become a fully functional electronic board.  No need to be stuck with one app forever and no risk of your embedded screen going bad and rendering your treadmill useless.  And, you don’t have to pay for technology that you already own.

Without the iFit app, this treadmill will give you virtually nothing to use on the electronics console.  This is another annoying aspect of buying a treadmill nowadays, many brands will force you into paying a monthly membership fee that can be more expensive than some health clubs.  If you don’t want to pay for the membership, consider buying a treadmill with an embedded FTMS Bluetooth module built in.  Then you are not handcuffed to your machine!     

Unfortunately, it does not get better from here.  Let’s zip through the other annoyances with the 1750.    In my opinion, this is not a treadmill built for a bigger person.  The belt skipped under my weight (302 LBS) and the deck and upper display bounced and shook like my dog after a bath.  

These “Peloton” style frames (with the sleek Z shape upright) seem to create a lot more bounce than more traditional machines.  Watch the video and you can see how much vertical travel the deck has when I run on it.  Not a good feel.  I also am not a fan of the Z shape frames because they can cause the step-up height to increase quite a bit.  In the case of the Nordic Track, the step-up height to the walking deck is 10”.  If you live in an older home and need to put this in the basement or somewhere with a lower ceiling height, this could easily present a problem.  Be aware of your ceiling height!  There are treadmills that will be closer to 6” – 7” step up height and these extra few inches could make a significant difference!

There are some decent aspects to this treadmill though, it is not all bad.  We do like the running belt deck size on the Nordic Track 1750 (2024 version).  The walking belt measures 20” x 60” which is good.  The treadmill is also easy to fold up and down which is also a plus.  We do like the overall look and the upper display is very clean and the buttons are easy to reach.  

Another unique feature of the Nordic Track 1750 (2024 version) is that it has a decline.  I realize many people say a decline is hard on your Patellar Tendon and knees but what do I know, I am not a scientist.  If you want a treadmill with a decline for under 2k, your options are limited.

Pros: Good size walking surface at 20” x 60”.  Solid built and sleek design.  Easy to fold up and down.

Cons.  Would not recommend it for someone over 250 lbs.  Shaky console and deck.  Belt slipping and underpowered feel.  $40 a month membership fee.  Customer service is hit or miss.
