Nordictrack x7i Incline Trainer
The Nordictrack x7i Incline Trainer was born as the result of collaboration between Nordictrack and Jillian Michaels and has been widely popularized by the popular TV show Biggest Loser.
We don’t recommend going out and buying any product simply because it has a celebrity endorsement. With that said, the Nordictrack x7i is designed by a highly regarded fitness trainer and is likely to be a much better machine than one designed solely by a mechanical engineer.
Who Should Buy The Nordictrack x7i Incline Trainer?
Incline training offers some real advantages over a standard treadmill and most anyone at any fitness level can benefit from it. Incline training will benefit you
- If you are an advanced fitness buff or runner and your current treadmill or exercise routine is not challenging enough
- If you are beginning an exercise program and want a machine that will be able to continue to challenge you as your fitness level improves
- If you have knee or joint problems and need a low impact way to exercise that gets results
- If you want to burn more calories, get in shape faster and get more out of each workout in less time
Unlike running or jogging, either on or off a treadmill using the Nordictrack incline treadmill is virtually zero impact exercise. If you can walk, you can use the Nordictrack x7i Incline Trainer.
If you are a backpacker or hiker you will love using the Nordictrack x7i because it offers up to a 6% decline and a 40% incline which simulates actual trail conditions. With Google Maps integration you can actually walk your favorite trails.
How Much Does The Nordictrack Incline Trainer x7i Cost?
Sale On Treadmills went looking for the best price on this Nordictrack incline trainer. Currently the only place we found it was available was on the official Nordictrack site where it sells for $1799. Sears was selling it but at this time it is not available.
However Sears did have the Nordictrack x9i Incline Trainer which lists for $2999.99 on sale for $1899.99 . The Nordictrack x9i Incline Trainer is the same treadmill but it is Android compatible rather than iPod compatible like the Nordictrack x7i.
This incline treadmill has a lot to offer but the price may seem as steep as the 40% incline to some. Fortunately both Nordictrack and Sears have financing options available.

What We Like About The Nordictrack x7i Incline Trainer
The Nordictrack x7i comes with a host of features that not only make training more fun but also make it more productive.
We like the fact this incline trainer is made in the US and uses quality parts. We think that the lifetime warranty on the motor and frame speaks for the quality of the The Nordictrack x7i Incline Trainer.
Treadmills are not complicated by nature and are easy to duplicate. What sets apart the good from the bad is the quality of the components used. This is a quality incline trainer that will accommodate all fitness levels and stand up to daily use.
The Nordictrack x7i Incline Trainer The Cons
We would have liked to see a better warranty on parts and labor at this price.
We were disappointed that the Nordictrack x7i Incline Trainer wasn’t more widely available and that the price and availability seems to be tightly controlled by Nordictrack. For instance, we could not find any Nordictrack incline trainers available on Amazon. Of course we would like to see the Nordictrack x7i at a lower price, but you get what you pay for.
We recommend buying the Nordictrack x7i Incline Trainer.
