Nordictrack C 7.5 Elliptical Review

Nordictrack C 7.5 Elliptical Trainer Review: Venturing into the purchase of an elliptical trainer while ignoring the most determining criteria of choice makes you run the risk of a bad acquisition. To help you avoid this, we recently published a buying guide exclusively dedicated to this fitness equipment, where you will find a selection of our favorites of the moment.

Today we will take a closer look at the Nordictrack C 7.5 elliptical trainer, one of our favourites, which has already been briefly mentioned in our site.

Presented as one of the most advanced models, the Nordictrack C 7.5 is a great all round elliptical. A 20 lbs (9 kg) flywheel, a motorized magnetic resistance system with electronic selection of up to 22 levels, a training console packed with features, but above all integrating 26 programs that you can extend thanks to iFit compatibility. The promises are tantalizing and make this model the ultimate elliptical trainer. But beyond the announcements, does the Nordictrack C 7.5 really justify its premium price? We’ll answer that question in this test.

Build Quality and comfort of use

For its price, the least we can expect from the Nordictrack C 7.5 elliptical trainer is that it is durable, and fortunately that’s the case. We’re dealing with a machine that exudes high quality and offers excellent ergonomics. This elliptical trainer designed with premium materials adapts to its user thanks to flexible adjustments available. Comfortable to use, it is equipped with a backlit display console, which despite its many features is easy to handle. The console is compatible with an iPod player and features Intermix AcousticsTM 3.0 speakers, allowing you to practice while enjoying your favorite songs. The elliptical trainer also has a stand for use with a tablet. You will be able to download the iFit application to your tablet. This gives you the option of taking out a paid premium subscription for further support.

Performance and features

The Movement on the Nordictrack C 7.5 elliptical trainer is smooth and comfortable, thanks to its 9 kg flywheel. You train in the best conditions and at your own pace. Its motorized magnetic resistance system allows you to select the level from 1 to 22 without interrupting your workout. While you work out, the console displays precise information such as distance, time, speed, heart rate, calories burned, ramp level, total number of strides taken, and much more. The Nordictrack C 7.5 features 26 programs, giving you the opportunity to diversify your workouts. Each program has a predefined time, distance and resistance.

The NordicTrack C 7.5 elliptical trainer offers a lot of adjustment possibilities. There are 22 levels of resistance, a ramp that can be tilted between 0 and 20Β° and a stride length that can be adjusted between 44 and 48cm. Everyone can therefore choose the settings that suit them best, then adjust them as they go along to progressively improve their performance.

And if you don’t know how to adjust your elliptical, just choose one of the 26 pre-recorded training programs created by coaches.

Of course, you’ll find the indispensable heart rate sensor on each handle bar.

Audio Features

As on many of its devices, NordicTrack offers an MP3 connection and two speakers. I prefer to use my headphones, but you should know that the sound delivered by the C 7.5 bike is pretty good, as long as it is in a fairly quiet environment. And to follow videos, a stand allows you to install a touchpad.

Tablet Holder
