NordicTrack Elliptical Reviews
NordicTrack began back in 1975 as a fitness company specializing in skier machines (which are still offered for sale today, in case you’re wondering!) The success of the ski machines allowed them to expand and start manufacturing other low impact machines like the elliptical. Soon after they began to get into the world of treadmills as well. However, despite their previous successes, NordicTrack as a standalone company went bankrupt in 1998.
During this time, Icon Health and Fitness saw an opportunity and purchased the NordicTrack brand in order to save them from being extinct forever. After the takeover by Icon, NordicTrack has thrived, and today it is one of the biggest and most successful exercise equipment brands on the market.
There has been a remarkable change over the past few years in the quality of the equipment that NordicTrack has to offer. They have used technology to their advantage to manufacture and produce ellipticals and treadmills that are an excellent value to the average buyer. For the money, you won’t find a machine with more perks than NordicTrack can give. They have also started using more quality parts in their machines in the last 5 years, but the prices haven’t skyrocketed like they have with some brands who make that switch.
The one thing to be cautious of is that Icon Fitness has a reputation for delivering bad customer service. Similar to the majority of exercise equipment brands out there, NordicTrack may occasionally have this problem as well. However, since they are building a superior machine in many ways, it’s quite possible that you will never have to deal with the customer service sector, and at least the warranties are better than most in the business to allow you sufficient time to work out any issues you may have.
