Nordictrack C5.5 Elliptical Trainer Review

πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ« Nordictrack C 5.5 Elliptical Review

Nordictrack C 5.5 Elliptical trainer review: The fantastic 2019 NordicTrack C5.5 elliptical trainer has been designed for those who want to go further in their training and improve themselves every day. Without forgetting, of course, that it must be practical and useful for the home. That’s why it’s foldable and has transport wheels. What more could you ask for?

  • A high-end elliptical machine
  • 20 levels of resistance to be adjusted with a single press
  • 3 levels of ramp inclination: 0Β°, 10Β°, 20Β°.
  • 20 pre-recorded programs by coaches
  • Adjustable step length between 46 and 51cm
  • Ergonomic dashboard with 5″ backlit screen
  • MP3 connection and 2 speakers
  • Shelf and bottle holder
  • Pulse sensors
  • 1 year IFIT subscription

  • No built-in screen for video playback

This folding home elliptical is very practical for users who are somewhat accustomed to cardiovascular exercises, as they will be able to demand more of themselves and increase their resistance thanks to the machine’s features. And not only that, it is also perfect for those people who are worried about sweating in hot weather. The Coolaire fan that it incorporates will be the salvation for them.

Another highlight of this folding elliptical machine is the adjustable manual ramp it comes with. In fact, this is the detail that allows users to increase their level of demand on themselves during their workouts. This ramp allows the inclination of the run to be adjusted from 0 to 20 degrees, according to the taste of each user, making the intensity of the exercise increase.

In this way, the power and resistance of the strides are increased, involving all the muscles of the lower body in a very focused way. In other words: if the user is looking for a powerful workout in which to burn calories while involving strength and endurance training, the NordicTrack C5.5 is your elliptical.

All of this is crowned by the magnetic resistance system with which the flywheel offers much smoother and quieter strides. For this reason it is ideal for use at home. No one will notice that someone is using the machine unless they see it on top of them.

On the other hand, the flywheel is in the front and weighs only 17 lbs. The first detail makes users pedal with much shorter and more intense strides, increasing the calorie burn. The second detail also ensures a much more fluid and safe movement.

The cushioning system improves the user’s posture during the workout, improving the footfall and avoiding sudden movements. In this way, the user’s way of moving will be much more natural, ergonomic, simple and, most importantly, safe for their body.

The stride length adjustable measuring 18 inches, which allows most people, regardless of their length, to perform cardio exercises with this folding NordicTrack. And don’t forget the pedals, which have an extra large size, suitable for all shoe sizes. In short, everyone at home can use this elliptical.

The NordicTrack C5.5 elliptical trainer features 20 professionally designed training programs and best of all, it includes the iFit program. It works via bluetooth and offers a personal trainer to each user, who will devise routines and routes, making you travel around the world without leaving your home. This way, workouts don’t become boring and routine.

In addition, it includes a structure to support the tablet and an input to connect both iPod, MP3 and MP4. This, in addition to its integrated speakers, allows the user to listen and watch whatever he wants to in his workouts: from the last episode of a series to a youtube video or a spotify theme.

What users say about the NordicTrack C5.5?

Users who have purchased and regularly use the NordicTrack C5.5 elliptical trainer are particularly impressed by its speakers, iFit training programs and its folding frame. These features, they say, are the most eye-catching and worth investing a little more money in this elliptical trainer.

In fact, many of them have appreciated it as an investment in the future, since the NordicTrack brand has always stood out for offering quality products. Of course, the other features are also taken into account, but what users value most is how comfortable and useful it is for their homes.

Nordictrack C5.5 Elliptical Features

Resistance and The Inertia System

The NordicTrack C5.5 has 20 levels of digital intensity regulation, which will allow us to increase or decrease the intensity of the exercises in a very simple and fast way. This elliptical also has a silent magnetic resistance system (SMR) that makes the movements in the workouts more fluid and also gives us a more complete way to work the main muscle groups of the body.


With an adjustable stride length of 18 inches, the NordicTrack C5.5 is ideal for all types of people because it can adapt even to large-size people and allows exercises to be done effectively even at higher levels of resistance. The pedals are large, for good comfort and perfect position.


The NordicTrack C5.5 has EKG pulse sensors for constant exercise monitoring and iFit Bluetooth Smart (BLE) technology which can be connected to the chest strap. The NordicTrack C5.5 is easy to transport as it includes wheels for easy movement when not in use as well as ensuring stability when in use.

Performance and features

With the NordicTrack C 5.5 elliptical you can improve the performance of both beginners and advanced riders. Indeed, the cross trainer offers several adjustment options:

  • 20 resistance levels
  • 3 levels of ramp inclination: 0Β°, 10Β°, 20Β°.
  • Step length from 46 to 51cm

In addition, it includes 20 pre-recorded programs. Each program has been created by a professional coach. All settings are pre-determined, which saves a lot of time.

If you like to listen to your music during your sport, the NordicTrack C 5.5 elliptical also includes MP3 connection and 2 speakers. The sound quality is not as good as real speakers, but I expected a much poorer sound. Anyway, I prefer to use my headphones to listen to my music.

There is a heart rate sensor on each handle. The measurement is shown on the control panel display.

Please note that the NordicTrack C 5.5 elliptical is equipped with a shelf holder and a bottle holder.
