Key Features

  • 14-inch Adjustable Touchscreen: The treadmill’s large screen is a standout feature, providing an immersive experience with iFit subscription-based training. It tilts and pivots for easy viewing and supports on- and off-treadmill workouts.
  • 3.5 CHP Quiet Motor: The powerful motor is suitable for a variety of workouts, from interval training to long-distance running, with minimal noise.
  • Foldable Deck: With its SpaceSaver design, the deck folds up easily, saving room when the treadmill is not in use. The lift-assist mechanism allows for smooth folding and unfolding, with locking for safety.
  • Cushioned Running Surface: The deck’s cushioning is designed to be easy on the joints, providing a more comfortable running experience.
  • Hands-Free Training with iFit: The treadmill can automatically adjust speed and incline based on iFit workouts, offering a hands-free training experience.
  • Incline/Decline Functionality: The deck can incline up to 12% and decline to -3%, adding variety to workouts.

What We Like

  • Versatility for All Fitness Levels: With a strong motor and a range of incline/decline options, this treadmill suits users of various abilities and training needs.
  • Quiet and Efficient Operation: The motor operates quietly, even at higher speeds, making it ideal for home use.
  • Compact Yet Spacious Design: The treadmill’s foldable design makes it suitable for smaller spaces, but it still offers a spacious 60-inch-long running belt.
  • Durable Construction: The sturdy frame and deck ensure stability during workouts, supporting users up to 300 lbs.

Areas for Improvement

  • Subscription Required for Full Functionality: Access to the full range of iFit workouts and features requires a monthly subscription. Manual mode is available without a subscription, but it offers limited functionality.
  • Limited Third-Party App Support: The console does not support popular streaming apps like Netflix or YouTube. A device rack for your tablet or phone would be a helpful addition for users who want to stream their own content.

Testing and Analysis

NordicTrack tests the 1750 with a team of personal trainers, group fitness instructors, and treadmill experts to ensure overall quality and performance. We’ve used the treadmill extensively, and here’s what we found.

Dimensions and Storability

The 1750 measures 78.5” L x 35.6” W x 64.7” H. It folds up easily with the lift-assist mechanism, locking securely when stored. The treadmill weighs about 293 lbs, so ensure you have enough space to set it up and use it safely. Consider ceiling height, as this treadmill has a step-up height of about 9.5 inches from the floor to the deck when flat, and an additional 6 inches for the full incline.

Motor and Speed Adjustments

The 3.5 CHP motor is designed for heavy use, with a 12 mph top speed suitable for various training styles. The motor adjusts quickly, reaching its maximum speed from 1 mph in about 23.5 seconds. The incline takes about 15.5 seconds to reach 12% and 6 seconds to reach -3%. Despite its power, the motor operates quietly, with noise levels comparable to a washing machine.

Deck and Cushioning

The 1750’s deck is 60 inches long and 20 inches wide, providing ample space for most users. The cushioning is one of the softest among treadmills, reducing impact on the joints. The adjustable cushioning creates a comfortable running experience, even for those with joint issues.

Warranty and Support

The treadmill comes with a 10-year frame warranty, 2-year parts warranty, and 1-year labor warranty, which is standard for NordicTrack treadmills. The setup is relatively simple, but we recommend having two people to help.

Conclusion

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill is an excellent choice for those seeking a high-quality treadmill with advanced tech features. Its foldable design, adjustable touch screen, and hands-free iFit training make it a versatile and reliable option for home workouts. Although a subscription to iFit is required for full functionality, the treadmill’s features and build quality make it a top choice for many fitness enthusiasts. If you’re looking for a treadmill with advanced features, a powerful motor, and comfortable cushioning, the 1750 is a worthy consideration.

FAQs

Can you use the NordicTrack 1750 without a subscription? Yes, you can use the treadmill without a subscription, but the manual mode and a single iFit workout are the only options. To access the full library of iFit content, a subscription is required.

Does the NordicTrack 1750 come with a heart rate monitor? No, but the treadmill is compatible with NordicTrack’s heart rate armband, which can be used to monitor heart rate and activate the ActivePulse technology for iFit workouts.

Is the NordicTrack 1750 suitable for marathon training? Yes, the treadmill is suitable for marathon training, thanks to its powerful motor, incline/decline functionality, and cushioned deck. However, users training for marathons might prefer the full iFit experience to access a broader range of training options.
