NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Review

NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Overview:

The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical is tough to beat…not just in this price range, but in any. This is a solid elliptical machine with a heavy 20 lb flywheel that provides a consistent, smooth and quiet elliptical motion. The 20” stride will accommodate most users and resistance and incline options provide more than enough intensity for anyone. The 22 levels of magnetic resistance and 20 degrees of incline can be adjusted automatically with the touch of a button. This allows you to find the perfect intensity without interrupting your workout.

The C 7.5 Elliptical also provides large, oversized pedals and soft-touch upper body grips to provide a comfortable elliptical motion. NordicTrack also provides other convenience features like an automatically adjusting fan, an intermix acoustic sound system, an integrated tablet shelf, a water bottle holder and transport wheels for easy transport and storage. There isn’t much that NordicTrack left off of the C 7.5 Elliptical.

What We Love About the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical:

Features

When it comes to features, there are only a few competitors like Nautilus and Schwinn that can stack up to NordicTrack. You can check out our reviews of their elliptical. In our opinion, for the price, the C 7.5 Elliptical is superior to the competition. The 20” stride and 22 levels of resistance are comparable to Schwinn and Nautilus, but the 20% of incline on the NordicTrack elliptical is far superior. The 26 programmed workouts on the console and the connectivity to iFit provide endless workout opportunities that are hard to beat by anyone. As a final cherry on top, NordicTrack provides an excellent warranty that can’t be touched by other elliptical in this price range.

Other Considerations:

Heart Rate Monitoring

The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical does provide the ability to track your heart rate while exercising, but it is only through hand grip sensors. While at this price range, hands-free monitoring through a chest strap isn’t necessary, it can be nice. Personally, I like the hand grips.

Final Word on the NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical:

The NordicTrack C 7.5 Elliptical is a really good choice for the money. It’s a very well built machine and comes with an excellent warranty. It has tons of options and features which as a whole beat out the competition. Rating: 90/100.
