Entertainment and Motivational Features on the Commercial 2450 Treadmill

  • 22” Tilt & Pivot Smart HD Touchscreen – The browser is used to interact with the treadmill.
    This allows you to view your iFit workouts directly on the treadmill.
  • iFit  – iFit has been out for a few years and has proven to be very popular with customers.  That is why it is installed on all the NordicTrack treadmills.  With iFit, your NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill can communicate with the Internet.  Through your iFit account…
  • You can create customized workouts. Between the extensive library of on-demand workouts and the ability to join live classes, there’s nothing stopping you from reaching your fitness goals. iFit’s on-demand workouts range from running routines to yoga and cross training to ensure you get a complete well-rounded workout regimen. Each class is led by one of iFit’s world-class trainers to keep you on track and making progress.
  • You can create customized routes on Google Maps and your NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill will simulate the terrain with the incline feature.  As you run, you can view your progress on the Android browser. Google Maps will provide a street level view of your running route. There is also a library of existing routes through popular city-scapes and national parks. Once again, your results are tracked onto your iFit account.
  • iFit has an HD video Library of world famous trails through National Parks and walks along popular ocean fronts. Like Google Maps the treadmill will simulate the terrain as you run. This gives you a more realistic experience than the Google Map app.

Note:  This machine comes with 30 day iFit Family Membership Trial.

  • Two 3” Digitally Amplified Speakers, Bluetooth Headphone Connectivity – NordicTrack offers some of the best sound systems installed on a treadmill.  Many treadmill companies cheap out on the speakers and they are barely audible.

NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Treadmill Features

4.0” HP Motor – Let’s just say – this is a bit of an overkill for a motor in a residential treadmill.  No matter how much you abuse this motor, it will take it and more.

22” x 60” Treadbelt – The Commercial 2450 has an extra wide 22″ treadbelt with a 60” length that gives you a nice comfortable zone for long running strides and interval training.

15% Incline & 3% Decline – NordicTrack is one of the few treadmill companies that allows you to both incline and decline the deck.  This gives you the ability to simulate running up and down hills.  It further enhances the experience of running with Google Maps.

Adjustable Shock Absorption – We’re not sure about the logic of this feature.  You can turn off the shock absorption so you can simulate running on asphalt, which doesn’t make a lot of sense, since one of the major benefits of running on a treadmill is the reduced impact to your body.  However, some people prefer a firmer running surface.

Warranty – The coverage is similar to other treadmills at this price range; 10-year frame, 2-year parts, 1-year labor.
