Nordic Track A2550 Pro Treadmill

Nordic Track A2550 Pro Treadmill

The Nordic Track A2550 Pro treadmill is one of the best values you will find in an $800 treadmill.

And just like most Nordic Tracks lately, this one also comes with beautiful design, quality parts, and numerous features at a price tag that is very affordable.

Is It for You?

Although this is one of the better starter treadmills in the market today, I still don’t think that it will suit runners. This machine was built for walking and light jogging only. So if you don’t plan to run on it, then this equipment is definitely for you.

What You’ll Get

The Nordic Track A2550 Pro boasts of a 2.5 continuous duty horse power DurX™ drive system. It has speeds of up to 12 mph and inclines for up to 10%. And with the 1-touch speed and 1-touch incline controls, changing the intensity of your workout becomes so much easier. However, since this is a budget treadmill, I don't recommend you run on it at or near max speeds as this will greatly reduce the life of the machine.

Like most Icon produced treadmills, this machine also features the popular iFIT® Live technology. You can access iFit.com and you’ll workout as if you have a personal trainer beside you talking to you. It automatically controls the speed, incline and duration of your workout depending on your personal goals.

And if that’s not enough, you also have 16 personal workout programs to choose from. There are 4 performance workouts, 4 timed workouts, 4 distance (1 mile, 5k, 10k 10 miles) workouts and 4 weight loss workouts to provide variety in your exercise.

The 20” x 55” tread belt offers enough room for brisk walking and jogging. Plus, it comes with ComfortShox™ cushion deck which absorbs impact to give you a more comfortable stride and reduce the risk of injuries.

A Grafixx™ high-resolution display is also included in this machine. It shows you your speed, time, pace, distance, incline, calories burned, and pulse (through the dual grip CardioGrip™ monitor). This display also comes with 2 secondary LCD windows for easy access to your workout information.

Other features include an Intermix Acoustics™ 2.0 sound system which is iPod and MP3 compatible so you can listen to your favorite music while working out, and the SpaceSaver® feature which folds the treadmill vertically so you can easily store it after use.

Weakness

The biggest weakness of this machine is its service. Nordic Track has been known in the past to provide poor after sales service.

Recommendation:

If you’re looking for an entry level treadmill, then you’re reading the right review. The Nordic Track A2550 Pro treadmill is recommended for people who are on a limited budget (just remember not to run on it).
