NordicTrack Audiostrider 990 User Reviews

We’ve tracked down a number of actual user reviews, and most of them are quite positive, as customers appreciate the wide array of features and capabilities built in.

“A very nice elliptical. It almost feels like you are operating a space ship, rather than fitness equipment. It’s very smooth and user friendly. I especially like the kinda incline feature. The iPod support is always great as well.” -vaininator

“We picked up our Audiostrider 990 Pro from our local store. My husband put it together in a matter of hours by himself. Our family of three has all used this and we are impressed with the smooth stride, adjustable foot pedals, and the incline feature. I purchased the Ifit Wifi module as well, which installed with no issues. My personal info is loaded and I can’t wait to see the pounds drop off.” -Jeani

“I received my Audiostrider 990 about a week ago and I’ve used it about 4 times so far. This elliptical is extremely heavy. It’s a really substantial machine and has a good feel when you are using it.” -Danielle

“We just received our Audiostrider 990 Pro and overall, we are pretty happy. The stride is smooth, the audio is clear and can be loud. The stride length is a bit deceiving. There is no actual stride length adjustments, it is achieved by the ramp moving up or down; which to me is NOT what was described in the profile of the equipment.” -EricaM

“I am on this 5 days a week and LOVE IT!! In the beginning there was some noise that came from under the rear cover but after the 1st workout all of the noises went away and have not heard it since.” -PDFuzz

The NordicTrack Audiostrider 990 Pro is one of the top ellipticals that NordicTrack has ever put out. It has stayed on top with popularity for years now. In fact, Consumer Magazine has voted it a “Best Buy” for 4 years in a row! NordicTrack keeps on improving this same model and it seems to be getting better and better.

With all the hype and popularity, you would think this machine cost a fortune, however that is just the opposite. This machine is currently one of the cheapest ellipticals that NordicTrack has to offer.

**UPDATE** The Audiostrider 990 has been replaced by the new SpaceSaver SE7i. NordicTrack has kept all of the great features and even added more for the same price!
