NordicTrack’s focus with the X11i Incline Trainer was to create a machine that would burn serious calories and they succeeded. The machine’s unique design is combined with leading edge interactive technology that will motivate you to reach your fitness goals.

Our team had the opportunity to review the x11i Incline Trainer when on a visit to the Icon Fitness corporate headquarters in Logan,Utah. This machine definitely made our tester break into a major sweat!

The NordicTrack Incline Trainers are primarily walking machines due to their steep incline, although the 60″ treadbelt will accommodate runners. This machine is a favorite with hikers because it allows them to simulate walking up hills and mountains. The ability to get an intense cardio workout while just walking makes these machines especially popular. You can burn calories like a runner, but without the stress and strain to your joints.

WEEKEND SALE ENDS MONDAY: The NordicTrack X11i Incline Trainer is reduced to $1,977 with FREE Shipping. Financing is available. This is $322 OFF the Regular Price!

NordicTrack x11i Incline Trainer Features and Technology

4.25 Continuous Duty HP Motor – This is a monster of a motor.  It matches what you’d find on a commercial grade treadmill. Unless you are excessively overweight, this motor will run effortlessly at the highest inclines.

22″ x 60″ Treadbelt – In addition to a lengthy 60″ belt, you also get an extra wide 22″ width, giving you an extra comfort zone when you walk or run.

Ability to Incline and Decline – The x11i inclines to 40 degrees and declines to -6 degrees, giving you the sensation of hiking up and down mountains. In the process, you are able to target numerous lower body muscles.

10″ Smart HD Touchscreen -These interactive screens give you vibrant feedback on your exercise stats and let you view your iFit Live programming in beautiful clarity.

iFit Live Coach PlusiFit Live is another Icon Fitness exclusive. This feature allows you to communicate with the web via a WiFi connection. Through your personalized account you can…

  • Access videos of famous landscapes and city-scapes. You can walk famous trails and once again your x11i will simulate the terrain. The video syncs with the speed of the machine.

44 Installed Workouts – There are a wide selection of pre-installed workout routines that control the speed and incline of the X11i Incline Trainer. Program examples include calorie burn, interval training, speed training, and intensity goals.

Warranty – The X11i has one of the best warranties in the industry.

  • Lifetime motor, frame, and deck
  • 6 years parts and electronics
  • 3 years labor

This coverage speaks volumes on the durability of this machine.

Snap Assembly – We have not assembled this machine, but NordicTrack states, “Get your machine from out-of-the-box to ready-to-workout sooner. Simple process takes less than half the assembly time of regular treadmills.” Having assembled our share of treadmills, cutting the time in half is a plus.

Stable and Solid – We are not sure what the weight of this machine is, but we couldn’t budge it during testing. We would highly recommend you get at least the inside delivery and not the standard delivery to the curb, which is standard with all fitness equipment companies.

Other Features – Speakers, MP3 input, fan, table holder, grip heart rate monitor, wireless heart rate monitor and large 2.5″ rollers.

Our Review – NordicTrack x11i Incline Trainer

We were thoroughly impressed when we tested the x11i. It is a heavy duty fitness machine that is built to take a beating. In addition, it comes with interactive features that are designed to motivate and keep you on track towards your fitness goals. Probably the best endorsement is the fact that this is the machine of choice for Icon Fitness employees. They can choose from numerous treadmills and elliptical trainer, and their choice is an Incline Trainer. End of story.

You may also be interested in the NordicTrack x22 Incline Trainer with an impressive 22″ Smart HD Touchscreen or the NordicTrack x9i Incline Trainer with a 7″ Smart HD Touchscreen, smaller motor, and lower price.

Customer Review of the NordicTrack x11i Incline Trainer

I’m a little over six weeks into ownership, and I love this machine. It is heads and shoulders above the TRUE treadmill it replaced. Ordering was easy, delivery was within a week, and the white glove service worked great. The workouts are tremendous, whether you want to do cardio or burn fat or both. I’ve had to call support once, and the connection was fast (no being on hold forever), I spoke with a human, and the fix is being shipped as I type. Can’t say enough good things about the experience, and for a 60-something year old, that’s not bad.

      Hi Teri,
      iFit Coach has been optional with NordicTrack up until around September of 2017. That that time, NordicTrack made it a “required” add on at the time of purchase and a one year subscription. That is still the case….however, a few days ago they started a promotion for the X11i Incline trainer and are including iFIT coach one year subscription for free. You will want to take advantage today as it will be removed anytime and no longer available.
