This budget-friendly Elliptical trainer has an excellent price tag and still provides fantastic high-tech features that will help push forwards your fitness levels. Similar models may focus less on the features that are important. So, let’s take a closer look at the NordicTrack C7.5 Elliptical Trainer.
Built for power
This model is a front wheel drive which means that the powerful 20lb effective inertia-enhanced flywheel is in front of you. Not only does this create a smoother ride for the users, but it also takes up less space. If you are interested, NordicTrack have also released a central drive elliptical cross trainer, NordicTrack A.C.T. Commercial 7 Elliptical Cross Trainer. The product itself is made to last with commercial-gauge solid steel construction. So, even if you are pushing to your top speed you won’t notice any considerable product movement.
Built for comfort
The C7.5 offers a number of excellent points on comfort. The product has oversized pedals and levellers, so that your feet will never be tempted to rise up from the pedal position. Use the upper body arms with designed soft-touch grips to achieve a full body workout. You could even choose to position your own tablet or device in the tablet holder and watch your favourite television show. If music is your preference then you’ll be happy with the dual 2” speakers. We were also happy to see that this model still included the Autobreeze workout fan, which adapts its speed and strength to match how hard you are working. This fantastic design feature means that your body will stay at a regulated temperature and so you’ll be able to work out, in comfort, for much longer.
Built for performance
The average 19” stride length is ideal for walkers, joggers and runners alike. Some of the NordicTrack series have adjustable stride features so if this is something that would interest you then look at the NordicTrack C9.5 Elliptical Cross Trainer. Overall, this 19” stride is larger than other similar models on the market.
Built with Digital Silent Magnetic Resistance levels of 0 - 20 degrees the C7.5 is ideal for a wide spectrum of users. This power incline can easily be toggled between during your workouts to ensure that you are using all of your muscle groups equally.
Built for programmes
With 26 professionally designed workout programmes built-in to the C7.5, there are plenty of options to rotate your workouts so that you don’t get bored. If you are wanting more variety then the Nordic Track 12.9 Elliptical Cross Trainer boasts 35 programmes on offer. The other option is to subscribe to the iFit programme which gives you access to hundreds of daily workout routines. It can help you tailor your workouts, discover healthy food recipes and even, by selecting Google Maps, automatically adjust the inclines and resistance levels of your cross trainer to replicate real road running tracks. It is important to note that iFit is not compatible with Virgin Media Routers.
Built for tracking
In terms of keeping a track of your heart rate there are two EKG grip pulses on the handlebars. This model does not have a Bluetooth heart monitor, so if this is important to you then look towards the NordicTrack Commercial 12.9 Elliptical Cross Trainer which has a Bluetooth chest strap as standard. Your workout stats are shown on an easy-read 5” backlit display, which has a ‘priority display’ feature so that you can realhone in-in on the stats that are most important to you. The console will show you: distance, resistance, speed, calories, pulse and time.
Great price, great features
We think that the NordicTrack C7.5 Elliptical Trainer is a fantastic option for all levels of trainers. With a lower price, we were happy that NordicTrack still kept many of the features that are on it’s high-range products. Overall, if you are looking for an affordable treadmill that you will still be using in years to come, then the C7.5 is an excellent option.
