The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 treadmill has consistently made best treadmill lists for years, and for good reason. With options to customize your workout to suit your fitness goals, modern technology, and a hydraulic folding system, this luxury treadmill packs a punch for a manageable cost.

It has a touchscreen display that allows you to select your workout, follow along with trainers across the globe, track your stats, and even create workouts of your own. You can pivot the touchscreen to suit your height, and rotate it 360 degrees for any workouts that may be off the tread. The 1750 offers automatic incline adjustments up to 15 degrees, decline adjustments down to negative three degrees, and speed adjustments depending on your workout. While its price tag may seem high off the bat, it’s fairly average for a high-tech treadmill, and we think it’s a great deal for what you’re getting with this machine.

Main Takeaways

  • There’s a 14-inch touchscreen display you can use for manual sessions, class streaming, and stat tracking. And with an iFit membership, you’ll have access to over 16,000 live and on-demand classes right in your console.
  • This treadmill can decline down to -3 percent and incline all the way up to 15 percent.
  • Your incline, decline, and speed settings will be automatically adjusted during each and every trainer-led workout.

NordicTrack 1750 Treadmill Video Review

Our Reviews Editor, Jake, puts the NordicTrack 1750 to the test in his in-depth video review. From a full walk-around of the treadmill, to diving into the spec details, you can get a firsthand look at one of the most well-known treads on the market. 

NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill Highlights

Whether you’re looking for a live class with your competition front and center on the iFit leaderboard or a solo mission featuring changes in terrain to mimic an outdoor run, the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 will keep your workouts engaging with a customizable workout plan.

The studio classes mimic being in an actual studio with a personal trainer and fellow workout junkies. You can also travel the world with a trainer as they teach you about the cultural aspects of each city that is highlighted during the workout. You can even filter your workouts based on terrain, or pick any city in the world and create your own workout thanks to the integration of Google Maps™.

If you’re working with a tight budget or prioritizing a smaller footprint, this treadmill may not be for you. But rest assured that you can fold it up, so it’s not consistently taking up a large amount of floor space, and due to all of the luxury features, the price tag may be well worth it. 

Who Should Buy the NordicTrack Commercial 1750

  • Anyone who loves to take a live running class. This tread comes equipped with a touchscreen where you can stream live and on-demand iFit classes (over 16,000 of them). 
  • Someone who’s obsessed with having all the latest technology — along with iFit, this tread has Bluetooth connectivity, incline and decline options, a touchscreen display that can tilt to accommodate your height while also rotating 360 degrees, and all the stat tracking you could need. 
  • The integration of Google Maps is a great feature for anyone training for a marathon. Simply search the city you’ll be running your race, and you can mimic the actual course you’re preparing for. 

Who Shouldn’t Buy the NordicTrack Commercial 1750

  • Anyone who is working with a tight budget may want to consider a cheaper alternative. 
  • If you aren’t interested in streaming workout classes, you may be better off with a more basic treadmill.
  • Anyone who doesn’t have a lot of available space may want to search for a smaller treadmill. The folding option here helps out in terms of storage, but this is still a relatively large product.

Price

The newest model of the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill is available for around $2,000 on the NordicTrack website, with older models of the 1750 at prices below that. However, if you’re purchasing on Amazon, that price can vary.

NordicTrack does offer a cheaper treadmill, but we think this is the best value option they have available thanks to all its features. You’re getting updated technology and a free month of iFit classes ($39 value) with this purchase, while many treadmills of the same quality and price don’t offer similar technological value. However, $2,000 is still a good chunk of change, so if you want to save your hard earned cash, you might want to look elsewhere for a more basic treadmill.

If you want to finance your purchase, NordicTrack has you covered. The monthly cost will ultimately be determined by the warranty option you select, and whether or not you want to purchase a one-, two-, or three-year iFit membership with your tread. If you just want the basic plan, and want to pay monthly rather than yearly for iFit, you will be looking at making payments of about $50 per month for 39 months. 

Overall Build and Quality

Clocking in at a sturdy 340 pounds, this machine isn’t for the faint of heart. Its features are designed for the running enthusiast who’s looking to build endurance and strength in a variety of ways. With tons of classes, programs, and customizations on the tread itself and with iFit, it’s safe to say you’ll never get bored on the NordicTrack Commercial 1750.

Features

With speeds up to 12 mph, fans with three levels of cool, Bluetooth connectivity for earbuds, and a whole lot of coaches ready to whoop your butt into shape, the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 will take your endurance, strength, and cardio to new heights. Literally — you can even run three percent downhill on this machine. Plus, the 14-inch touchscreen display makes following along to virtual classes easier than ever.

Incline range 

You can take your incline down to -3 percent and all the way up to 15 percent, making this machine clutch for anyone who is working on their road and trail running skills where you come across uneven terrain often.

The -3 percent doesn’t feel too intense — it’s just enough for you to tell the difference between running flat and on a slight decline, so you shouldn’t fear your feet getting out of control as you go down. Plus, the Quiet Drive Incline Tech makes transitioning your inclines quiet and seamless, which is something that those who work out early in the morning or late at night will enjoy.

Speed range

With a speed range from zero to 12 mph, the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 can handle interval training. Whether you’re just working on your speed walk or you’re gearing up for your next sibling rivalry sprint Olympics, this treadmill will have you prepped and ready to conquer. 

Included workouts

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 has 50 pre-programmed workouts in its system that require no membership fees. And as an added perk, this machine comes with a one month iFit membership for free.

You can have up to five users, take all the live or on-demand classes you want from their library of over 16,000 classes, and not spend a dime on it for an entire month (that’s a $39 value). The classes even include hikes at exotic destinations around the world, like Wales and New Zealand, making it difficult to get bored even when the monotony of tackling long distances on a tread sets in.

Display

You can follow along on your workout on this treadmill’s 14-inch HD touchscreen. If you’re using iFit, your coach will pop up on display here, and not only can you adjust the angle of the screen by tilting it back and forth, but you can also rotate it 360 degrees. So if you plan on joining any class that doesn’t involve the treadmill, you can rotate the monitor and participate in the class on the floor.

iFit will list your stats along the top portion of the screen as you work out, and after you’re done, you’ll receive a full workout summary on-screen. While there is a camera located at the top of the monitor, it currently doesn’t serve a purpose, but we imagine NordicTrack will add some level of compatibility in the not-too-distant future.

Speakers

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 has two three-inch amplified speakers. Sync your music from your phone through Bluetooth, pop on an iFit class, or even stick your tablet on the tablet stand and stream some Netflix to get you through your workout.

Fans

This machine has two AutoBreeze Workout Fans with three levels to keep you the perfect amount of cool during a sweaty run.

Heart Rate Monitoring

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 unfortunately does not come with a heart rate monitor to track your heart rate, nor does it have EKG sensors on the handlebar. But thanks to the Bluetooth technology, you can pair any existing monitor or fitness tracker you may have with the 1750.

HDMI, USB and Other Inputs

This treadmill doesn’t have any USB ports, so don’t expect to be able to charge your phone through the tread as you run. But you can listen to everything you need through Bluetooth, so having your phone across the room charging while you sync your music up to the treadmill isn’t an issue.

Bluetooth and Audio Options

The 1750 features Bluetooth capabilities for you to pair up your phone, headphones, an external speaker, and heart rate monitor. This allows you to connect your music to the speakers and play it out loud through the treadmill, or listen to the iFit classes with your headphones if you want to keep your early morning or late night workouts a little more hush-hush.

It’s worth noting that if you sync your own music through the tread, it won’t display on the touchscreen, so if you want to change your song, you’ll have to do it on your device throughout your workout. 

Water Bottle, Cup Holders, Tablet and Phone Holders

NordicTrack redesigned the 1750, and took out some storage features. There used to be a tablet shelf just below the touchscreen monitor, and a storage tray underneath the handlebar. Now, you only have two cup holders for storage, but they’re big enough to hold the majority of water bottles, and of course, your phone. Your water bottle might wobble a little bit as you hit some of the higher end speeds, but we didn’t find this to be much of an issue. 

Product Specs

You can expect the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 to hold up for many years to come with its powerful 3.5 CHP motor, 2-ply belt, 2.5-inch rollers, and much more that make it a reliable buy.

This is a quiet piece of equipment, and it responds almost immediately when you change speeds and inclines, or start/stop. You’ll definitely be getting a quality product along with the many great technologies to accompany it. 

Motor Size

The 3.5 CHP Motor power allows for hardly noticeable jumps between speeds for seamless interval workouts. In addition, when you start or stop your machine, the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 responds immediately.

While some may appreciate this, it does make for very sudden starts and stops, which can be alarming if you aren’t used to or expecting them.

Running Area

The 22 x 60-inch running surface has ample room for runners looking for a little extra space to account for the occasional stumble but still keep you on track.

Weight Capacity

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 can support exercising passengers that weigh up to 300 pounds.

Folding Options and Dimensions

When the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 is in use, it’s 80 inches long x 38 inches wide and 65 inches tall.

It folds up into a V shape, so it’s definitely not a treadmill that’s going to save you a lot of space when it’s not in use, but the EasyLift Assist hydraulic lift feature and wheels make stowing it away pretty painless. 

Max Speed and Incline Range

Run from a -3 percent decline to a 15 percent incline at speeds up to 12 mph. Work on terrain changes, HIIT intervals, or even take a hike on this all-access pass to conditioning and strength building work. 

Electrical Requirements

This machine requires an outlet that can handle 120 volts AC and 15 amps—which in simpler terms is most basic outlets in your home. 

Belt Information and Roller Size 

The 2.5-inch rollers and 2-ply belt are sturdy enough to handle 300-pounds and keep on rolling for many years to come. 

Cushioning and Feel

Another feature that NordicTrack removed from the 1750 is the adjustable cushioning — the cushioning remains on at all times now. This may be a bit of a bummer for some people, but we didn’t feel as if the tread was harsh on our knees when running, and overall, we felt pretty comfortable.

Workout Apps and Compatibility

When checking out, you have the option of adding a one-year, two-year, or three-year iFit membership to your purchase. This will increase the price, but will save you money in the long run compared to paying a monthly membership fee. iFit offers over 16,000 different workouts that are constantly updated—both live and on-demand classes, with strength, running and hiking options.

The iFit app allows you to track your stats as you go, but you will need WiFi to run iFit. If you don’t want to pay for the iFit membership after your free year (or month, depending on your purchase option) is up, you can always utilize the manual setting to create your own workouts. At the end of the day though, this treadmill is meant to be used with iFit for a more integrated experience. 

Subscription Options 

In addition to the $39 monthly iFit membership plan, you have three different options. The one-year membership will run you around $400, the two-year plan is about $700, and the three-year membership plan is about $900. The cool thing is that you can add up to four other profiles under your account to split the payments up with any friends or family. 

Warranties

Your purchase comes with a 10-Year frame warranty, a 2-Year parts warranty, and a 1-Year labor warranty. If you want added protection, you can purchase the three-year extended warranty for about $180, and the three-year maintenance plan for around $340.

Places to Buy

You can buy the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 on NordicTrack’s website or Amazon’s marketplace.

Company Information

NordicTrack is known for being successful with personal training at home on not only treadmills, but bikes, rowers and ellipticals as well. They offer a 30-day trial period in which you can receive a full refund if you aren’t satisfied with your treadmill purchase. You can reach their customer support by calling 1-888-308-9616.

Final Word

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 treadmill is one of the most popular treadmills for a reason. It has a high quality build, the hydraulics allow you to fold the tread in a V shape to make the most of your space, and is full of high-tech features to make your workouts more enjoyable. You can join a studio class with a personal trainer and fellow workout enthusiasts, or spend some time learning about other cultures as you explore the world virtually with your trainer.

If you’re particularly interested in streaming iFit workouts while you run or want to test out a -3 decline on the tread that may help mimic your outdoor trail runs, this machine is a great option. Even though it may be a bit pricey, we think the modern technology, quiet drive, and powerful motor make the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 worth every penny. 

FAQs

Does the NordicTrack 1750 fold?

Yes, the treadmill does fold up, but that doesn’t mean it won’t still take up space. It rests in a V-shape when folded, so though it is smaller than when it’s laying flat for use, it will still take up a good portion of whichever room you choose to put it in. We wouldn’t recommend it if you’re looking for something for a small studio space.

Can you watch TV on NordicTrack 1750?

No, you cannot watch any type of show on the 1750. However, we found the global classes to be entertaining enough to help pass the time during the workouts.

Can you use the NordicTrack 1750 without iFit?

Yes, NordicTrack has a manual workout option where you can create your own custom workout. However, this treadmill was designed to be used with iFit, so we think you should strongly consider paying for a membership.
