NordicTrack Elliptical Review

NordicTrack offers four different elliptical series: the Freestride Trainer series, the Front Drive series, the Rear Drive series, and the ACT Mid-Mech series.

NordicTrack Freestride Trainers are designed to be incredibly low impact. According to their website, “the unique floating suspension system takes away the normal limits of a crank-connected pedal, so you control the length of your stride. Get the toning benefits of a stepper, the cardio benefits of a treadmill, and the total-body conditioning of an elliptical.”

The Freestride Trainers come in three models. The main difference between them is their console. The FreeStride Trainer FS5i comes with a tablet holder, the FreeStride Trainer FS7i comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, and the FreeStride FS9i comes with a 10-inch touchscreen.

The NordicTrack Front Drive series features oversized cushion pedals and Soft Touch upper body grips, providing comfort during your zero-impact, total-body workout. The Front Drive series also includes heart rate monitoring, auxiliary ports, incline controls, and personal coaching. The Front Drive series comes in five different models.

NordicTrack Rear Drive models deliver low-impact cardio that closely simulates running. You’ll feel like you’re jogging along a footpath, but with all the cushioning of a top-of-the-line elliptical. These products come with a SpaceSaver design that allows you to fold the equipment up to maximize your space. The Rear Drive series comes in two models.

The NordicTrack ACT Mid-Mech series offers a compact design with GlobeTrek workouts, personalized coaching, iFit Coach compatibility, adjustable pedals, and stride adjustment. The ACT Mid-Mech series comes in three different models.

  • Offers four different elliptical series
  • Comes with free shipping and in-home setup
  • All ellipticals come with one full year of iFit, an interactive personal training experience
