Expert Reviews

“With the adjustable stride, it’s perfect for anyone and everyone. Also, with the oversized pedals, you don’t have to worry about your feet being too big. They also allow you to use what ever foot position you are most comfortable with. Overall, this elliptical is perfect for everyone.” – NordicTrackCoupon

“Not all ellipticals come with adjustable stride. Only about half of all elliptical machines available in the market have this feature and the E5.5 is among them. You have the pleasure of selecting between 16″, 18″, and 20″ to train different muscle groups or just select a stride length that’s comfortable to you.” -Treadmills 411

“Our 2nd runner up in the $699 category the E5.5 gives you a rear drive machine in a value package. The fold up feature on the machine also adds value, if you feel you need it.” – Treadmill Doctor

User Reviews

“Very quiet and sturdy. Recommend having it assembled!. good workout. great for home use.” -So Cal (San Diego)

“I weigh 250 lbs and I was looking for something well built and sturdy. This one is very sturdy, although once in a while I need to tighten the screws. I use this Elliptical almost every day and I love it. I really like the programed workouts that are already included. I highly recommend this machine.” -lukester (Oroville, CA)

“Most of the machine is metal and very sturdy. Only plastic parts are wheel casing and snap-on joint covers. My husband and I are both 200+lbs, and this machine is very sturdy during operation, even on carpet. Very quiet too. Really enjoy the mp3 speakers (includes cable-NICE!) Space saver/fold-up is a little tricky, recommend 2 people to operate. Overall, excellent purchase. Very satistified.” – HeatherNC (Charlotte, NC)

“This is a great value for a high quality elliptical with all the features most home users would want. Got it on a 72 hour sale too!” -Coozoe (Lombard, IL)


The NordicTrack E 5.5 is right in the middle of the NordicTrack line up, according to price. Although the price is lower than some, it is not lacking in any of the features of the upper priced ellipticals. In fact, it is keeping right up with the expensive models. This elliptical is a great bargain because it has many of the features that you will see on expensive ellipticals, such as the 16 – 20″ adjustable stride, the 20 digital resistance levels, the 20 workout apps, and best of all, the iFit Compatibility. The features that you will get at this price are just outstanding.

**UPDATE** The 5.5 is no longer available, and has been replaced with two new Space Saver models. Check them both out on sale here. The SE7i model is comparably priced to the 5.5 so it might be a good choice for you. Take a look.
