NordicTrack Commercial 2950 Treadmill Review

NordicTrack Treadmill Overview:

The Commercial 2950 Treadmill is NordicTrack’s highest grade commercial treadmill in their line of powerhouse commercial-grade models that are great for home use. It has a 4.25 continuous horsepower DurX Commercial motor. Along with large 2.5” rear rollers, this treadmill provides a smooth and quiet exercise experience. Using the one touch controls, you can quickly adjust your speed from 0 to 12 mph and your incline from 0 to 15%. The Commercial 2950 Treadmill from NordicTrack also provides a 3% decline. These controls are always within your reach with the power adjustable console. The console height can be adjusted automatically to keep the display, heart rate sensors and fan in perfect position during your workout (we love all this adjustability).

The running surface is huge at 22”x60” and uses a WhisperQuiet design that reduces the noise of each step. The running surface also utilizes a FlexSelect Cushioning system that can provide a firm, road-like running surface or a soft surface that is easy on the joints. NordicTrack also packs this treadmill with tons of conveniences like a wireless iFit Bluetooth® Chest Strap, a 10” smart HD touchscreen console with 40 workout apps and iFit® Coach, as well as an auxiliary music port and adjustable tablet holder. All of this creates an enjoyable workout experience.

What We Love About the NordicTrack Commercial 2950 Treadmill:

Features

The feature that sets the NordicTrack Commercial 2950 Treadmill apart is the adjustable console. The motorized console allows you to keep the controls in perfect position and within arms reach no matter your size. It’s perfect customization.

The NordicTrack Commercial 2950 Treadmill has a lot of other modern conveniences like a large and cushioned running surface. They provide a wireless chest strap for free with the purchase. The workout options are practically endless with the 40 pre-loaded apps and connectivity to iFit and GoogleMaps. And to keep you connected to your own technology, this treadmill provides an auxiliary music port and an adjustable tablet holder. We actually can’t think of anything the NordicTrack forgot to provide on this treadmill.

Other Considerations:

Options

The NordicTrack Commercial 2950 Treadmill beats out the competition and is worth the money for the excellent upgrades. That said, NordicTrack offers some competition themselves with some less pricey models. For instance, compared to the Commercial 2450, this treadmill offers a 0.25 HP upgrade and an adjustable console. Over the Commercial 1750 Treadmill you’re getting less than 0.5 HP upgrade, 2 more workout apps and the adjustable console. These can make a big difference, but you may want to take a look at our reviews of other NordicTrack treadmills like the Commercial 2450.

Final Word on the NordicTrack Commercial 2950 Treadmill:

The NordicTrack Commercial 2950 Treadmill is definitely an excellent machine and well worth the money when compared to the competition. The Commercial 2950 Treadmill gives you a bigger motor and an adjustable height console over the Commercial 2450 Treadmill. The Commercial 1750 is also a great option in this range. Make sure you check out our reviews of these treadmills. Rated: 98/100.
