The resistance on the NordicTrack A.C.T. commercial is magnetically powered, ensuring a smooth exercise session from workout to workout, and there are twenty four levels of resistance, allowing you to lower or raise the intensity of your workout easily. You can control the resistance easily by using the moving handlebars.
The display is fully colored with an Android browser. You can scroll through the various statistics you are tracking and it is a touch screen so you need only swipe your finger to do so. Additionally, you can go online while you workout. You can read your emails, or check out your favorite websites, which may encourage you to workout more.
Although there are thirty two workout apps, there are also thirty five workout programs which are pre-programmed, designed by personal trainers to ensure that you get the maximum amount of benefits from the time you invest on the machine. They can help you increase muscle tone or help you to lose weight, which is a nice feature.
The incline is adjustable, allowing you to ramp up your workout efforts as well. Although it doesn’t offer as much freedom as other similarly priced ellipticals, it is still nice to know you can raise or lower the level of incline so that you can increase the intensity of your workout session. This might motivate you further, because you can spend less time on the machine.
The stride adjusts from eighteen inches to twenty two, making this a nice choice for owners with different users at different heights. An advantage that an adjustable stride delivers is that by changing the stride length, you can work on different parts or the lower body, providing you with a real full body workout, at least for an elliptical.
The warranty is very good. There is a lifetime warranty on the frame, a five year warranty on the parts, and a two year warranty on the labor. Similarly priced elliptical trainers will typically not deliver a warranty this dependable, with a ninety day cap on the labor warranty. The fact that the frame comes with a lifetime warranty should make you feel better about spending extra money on this one.
Price and Value
At $1299, the NordicTrack A.C.T. Commercial 7 offers great value for users who are interested in entertainment options, but it falls a little short when it comes to adjustable features. Note that you can save yourself over a thousand dollars by buying an entry level elliptical in this series if you are willing to live without the entertainment options. However the Commercial 7 model is a quality trainer with a good warranty and a plethora of tracking options. If you like gadgets, you will love the color display and if you need to be motivated to workout, you might enjoy being able to surf the net while you exercise. All of these points lead you to draw the conclusion that this is a good choice if you are willing to spend the money.
