Assembly

So, it is recommended that you have someone else to help you, or that you get the expert assembly for the extra $100.

What We Like About The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine

There are several things which we really like about the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine. It has a good number of features that definitely need mentioning.

One of the things that we really like about the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine is that it is highly adjustable. It features 22 levels of magnetic resistance and has a high inertia flywheel. This means that you can choose the intensity which suits you best, plus your routine will be very smooth and quiet too. On that same note, this elliptical trainer also features a motorized adjustable incline function. With the push of a button, you can change the incline anywhere from 0 to 20 degrees. This is great for increasing the challenge you are faced with even more. What is also quite impressive about the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine is that you can adjust the stride length up to 20 inches in order to suit your needs.

We like the dual function handlebars which the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine comes with. It is fantastic for getting an upper body workout thanks to the motion handlebars. The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine also has static handlebars which are equipped with heartbeat sensors for fitness tracking purposes. The handlebars are ergonomically designed to be comfortable, plus they also feature soft touch padding.

What is quite impressive about the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine is that it has 26 workout app included on it. It has various user profiles, goal programs, and other preset programs for you to use. All of these programs can be chosen using the 5-inch backlit LCD display that is easy to read and simple to navigate. The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine also features iPod and MP3 player compatibility combined with acoustic speakers so you can enjoy your music while you work out. Finally, the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine is also iFit compatible as well as compatible with various other fitness apps for detailed data export and fitness tracking.

The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine is also a good option to go with because it is built with only the best quality materials around. It is so durable that this model has a 325-pound weight capacity.

What We Don’t Like About The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine

There are a couple of small issues that we have with the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine, but they are nothing major.

The fact that the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine is so big and heavy is definitely a drawback. It takes 2 people to move it around and to assemble. It is not a major issue if you have the space for it, but it is big.

Something else that we do not particularly like about this elliptical machine is that the iFit features will cost you a monthly subscription fee on top of the price of the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine.​

Alternatives To The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine

So you have a little point of comparison, let’s talk about some of the alternatives to the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine.

Nautilus E616 Elliptical Trainer

The Nautilus E616 Elliptical Trainer is a comparable model to the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine. The NordicTrack model is a little bit more expensive and it has some more features too. Some things that the NordicTrack has which the Nautilus does not includes a larger number of resistance levels, an adjustable stride length, and a larger amount of incline adjustments, as well as a higher weight capacity. On the other hand, the Nautilus does actually have more preset workout programs and is a little more space friendly too. That being said, the NordicTrack is a little bit more expensive.

Horizon Fitness EX-59-02 Elliptical Trainer

The NordicTrack model is more than $100 more expensive than the Horizon Fitness EX-59-02 Elliptical Trainer, and the features do correspond to this. It is not like the Horizon Fitness model is bad, but it does have fewer features. The NordicTrack EX-59-02 is stronger, has a higher weight capacity, more preset programs, more resistance levels, and can be adjusted in several ways which the Horizon Fitness model cannot. The Horizon Fitness model is smaller and more space efficient, but that is about it.

Final Thoughts On The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine

The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine is a perfectly fine model to go with. It has a high user weight capacity, lots of preset programs, lots of resistance levels, and is highly adjustable too. It even has some extra features like speakers too. For the price it comes at, the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Machine is a great high end option to consider.
