The NordicTrack C100 Treadmill is a fantastic piece of exercise equipment that is very competitive against other treadmills on the market today. For the price, in our opinion the NordicTrack C100 Treadmill, has a brilliant range of features:
The NordicTrack C100 Treadmill includes a DurXTM motor that is the 2.75CHP variety, and reaches a max speed of 20 kilometers per hour. The belts for this treadmill are very durable, making them resistant to stretching over the life of this product.
The screen used for the NordicTrack C100 Treadmill is LCD and is tinted depending on the lighting in your workout room. This screen tracks a lot of components for your workout such as speed, distance, incline, heart rate, and so much more. To find an individual’s heart rate, there are sensors on the handlebars of this treadmill that take a reading extremely fast. Also, for an extra cost, a Polarr Chest Pulse Strap can be purchased to take a heart rate that is completely hands-free, keeping you focused on your task. The treadmills offers 16 different workouts that help track goals and create new challenges each and every time it is used.
A workout is never complete without the appropriate music, right? The NordicTrack C100 Treadmill has built-in speakers that are made by the brand Intermix. These Acoustics 2.0 speakers are compatible for any iPod or mp3 player. Pick any tunes that pump you up to make for an excellent workout.
Are you looking for a harder workout when using a treadmill? Then, adjust the incline up to 10% with this treadmill. If safety is a priority for your next treadmill purchase, the NordicTrack C100 has keys called “OneTouchT,” which easily change or stop your workout all together. These keys are connected to a cushioned belt for quick access to a workout that is also comfortable to wear.
Given the lower cost, we think that the C100 stacks up well against other, similar treadmills. Let’s take the Sole Fitness F63 Treadmill - the NordicTrack C100 offers more programs to choose from when picking a workout, even though it costs less to buy. Yes, the Sole Fitness F63 Treadmill does go up to 15%, while the NordicTrack C100 Treadmill only goes up to 10%. However, you have to consider the slightly higher price of a treadmill such as the Sole Fitness F63 Treadmill
, and whether these slight differences in features are worth the extra few hundred pounds. If you want to go the extra mile (excuse the pun!), then other more expensive treadmills, like the Spirit XT685 Treadmill have built-in fans to keep people cool. Something to consider if you are doing some really hardcore training; however, for average usage, in UK climate, maybe one can live without the built-in fan?
· High-quality product
· Wide treadmill bands
· Multiple workout options
· No treadmill fan included
· Speakers don’t get very loud
In the end, the NordicTrack C100 Treadmill is a solid option when looking for a workout machine to fit your lifestyle. This treadmill has all the bells and whistles, but the cost of the machine won’t break the bank. Expect to pay anywhere from £500 to £600 on this product with delivery included. [/read]
