The NordicTrack C 700 Treadmill was primarily designed with joggers and speed walkers in mind. This may also be suitable for you if you are a beginner runner but are looking to take a small step towards a serious fitness goal. This model is popular, not only for its price tag but also the features that it offers its users.
There are 20 programmes built into the C700 model. Each of these have been designed by professional coaches and aim to push you in a positive manner to your next fitness goal. Twenty programmes is plenty to get you started but as you become more advanced you may wish to subscribe to the iFit. The C700 model is iFit compatible, so you can access new workout videos every day. If you are looking for more built-in programmes, we think you’ll be impressed with the NordicTrack Elite 4000 Treadmill which has an incredible 40 programmes.
With the C700 model you can have more enjoyment options during your workout. Simply place your own tablet or smartphone in the adjustable holder and then now you can now watch your favourite shows whilst working out. The C700 also has been installed with one of the better sound systems, featuring dual 2” speakers, on the market.
Incline and Speed
It is important to remember that the C700 has been designed with beginners, joggers and speed walkers in mind. Therefore, we think that the 0 - 10% manually adjustable incline is plenty to add a new or additional challenge to your workout. You’ll be happy to hear that the C700 comes with NordicTrack’s unique Flex Cushioning which can be turned on or off. Turned on and you will have a softer, supported run, ideal for those with injuries. Turn it off and you’ll replicate real-road running. With a top-speed of 10mph, this is slightly lower than the average treadmill but ideal for speed walkers and joggers.
Heart rate tracking
Your heart rate whilst using the C700 is measured by the EKG cardio pads and then these stats are shown on the multi-window LED display. If you want a treadmill with a more consistent way to measure your heart rate then we would recommend the NordicTrack T7.0 Folding Treadmill, for which you can purchase a heart monitor.
The C700 has been fitted with a 2.75 CHP DurX motor which is designed to support long power walks. Unlike some of the other treadmill models from NordicTrack it also features a slightly wider, but shorter track size of 22” x 55”. If you want a slightly different track size then the NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Treadmill with its 22 x 60” track might suit your needs.
Great value to get you started
The NordicTrack C700 didn’t disappoint us in what it was designed to do. We also love the fact that the product folds in half so that it can be easily stored away when not in use. Overall, the product is less expensive than some other models on the market and yet still comes with an impressive array of features.
