NordicTrack ACT PRO Elliptical Review

The NordicTrack ACT PRO Elliptical is very sturdy and beautifully designed elliptical. It has a footprint of 51” x 38” that is half the size of normal ellipticals! This is a great option for those who are challenged or limited by space requirements.

The NordicTrack ACT PRO Elliptical starts with a center drive system that has proven to be very reliable. The drive system is well designed and helps in emulating the natural elliptical motion needed to construct a good elliptical machine.

The ACT PRO is made with a commercial-grade steel frame to make it strong and durable. The ACT Pro has an adjustable stride length from 18” to 22” to accommodate users with different height and needs. It also comes with 20 resistance levels to choose from to help you hit your goal. It comes with a 1-TouchTM feature for easy resistance level selection. It has a maximum user weight of 350 lbs.

The NordicTrack ACT PRO Elliptical is iFit LiveTM Technology Compatible. With iFit LiveTM you can experience trails around the world powered by Google Maps. Run the Panorama at Yosemite National Park, Bright Angel at the Grand Canyon, or the Cathedral Rock in Nevada while the resistance automatically adjusts to match the terrain.

Or how about training with Jillian Michaels in one of her 8-week boot camp work-outs? You can also receive automatic workout downloads, manage your profile online and more. The iFit LiveTM Module & Subscription are sold separately and a home wireless internet connection is required.

The ACT PRO has a GrafixxTM High Resolution Display to shows all the information you need while working out. It has also a compatible music port where you can plug-in your iPod into the InterplayTM Music Port and listen to your music through the IntermixTM Acoustic 2.0 sound system.
