day

Reviews around day (5.00 of 5)

  • Use it three times a day every day was easy to set up
  • My husband and myself both used it daily and it was seeing a good 4-6 miles/day.
  • They then asked for me 3 more days I was free and promised they would update me by the end of day yesterday with confirmation on one of those days
  • Everything feels as solid as the day I put it together and there have been no surprise discoveries with it
  • well that card took more than 20 days to arrive.. it is back ordered they said

unit

Reviews around unit (4.42 of 5)

  • Overall it is a good unit, a far cry from my old Sears treadmill.
  • But here are so many negatives regarding this unit, I settled on three stars.
  • It's a sturdy unit if put together properly which I did, but the bottom line is how it works as a treadmill and if you enjoy that part of it
  • The unit looks and works great
  • Unit in made well and hopefully will last a long time, but buy a cheaper model without bells and whistles unless you want to join I-Fit.

work

Reviews around work (4.40 of 5)

  • The Touchscreen console is very nice, and responsive, and the fan works well
  • Online tools only work with IFit no other program works with this equipment
  • However, getting one delivered in perfect working order is another story
  • Two week update: really enjoying the video work outs more then I thought I would
  • After battling Amazon (Home Services, and special handling department) though the process of having a undamaged unit delivered and a damaged one removed (2 week+ process) we finally had a self built (home services was the absolute worst) fully working machine in place

assembly

Reviews around assembly (4.37 of 5)

  • Assembly was great
  • Assembly was easy
  • Recommend getting the professional assembly
  • Assembly was a little more difficult (time-wise) than I'd expected
  • I feel I'm fairly well qualified to provide an objective review of this NoricTrack C990.First off, if you don't get free assembly as part of your purchase, I'd highly recommend paying extra for it.

price

Reviews around price (4.33 of 5)

  • I couldn't believe purchasing such a high end trend mill for such a great price.
  • The price was great for the product I received
  • Very good price for such a quality model
  • The iFIT is exorbitantly priced, so I'm wasting all the hi-tech interface and sticking to my 5 mile run.
  • I spent days, probably a week or more after making the decision to spend the money, researching the best, most affordable models, the features I wanted and didn't really need, the price range I felt most comfortable with, and what place would give me the best price.

feature

Reviews around feature (4.28 of 5)

  • If you don't need the google maps picturesque feature then it will work fine
  • A great, space savings feature and makes it easy to move as well
  • Well here's the thing: the treadmill takes several minutes to boot up and connect to wifi and load up all these silly features that are useless for those of us who simply like to run
  • Don't expect miracles or crazy features
  • The feature to be able to see the street view through Google Maps, as you run, is a cool feature, and takes the boredom out of your workout

customer support

Reviews around customer support (4.13 of 5)

  • After an hour on hold I got a very friendly customer support specialist on the line
  • Either way, I would say the customer support alone makes this product not worth it
  • Either way, I would say the customer support alone makes this product not worth it
  • Horrible purchase, but even more horrific customer support
  • When I contacted Nordictrack customer support, they requested a video

machine

Reviews around machine (3.59 of 5)

  • The C990 is a good machine that meets the under $1000.00 point
  • Solid machine, you should have a good level of mechanical/assembly skills to assemble yourself
  • The machine is a mess
  • Probably because the machine Is so flimsy it shakes a ton when you walk

product

Reviews around product (3.46 of 5)

  • No front wheels in the package, most likely this product was damage in transit or at production site
  • Their products might be good (if everything works as advertised) but the customer service is terrible
  • but overall this is a horrible product and do not recommend the Nordic Track C990.
  • The product has a software that logs you into ifit etc does not work at all.
  • Them, I bought a stand up desk 2 years and this tread, both were assembled in less than an 1.5 hours, both are great products

ifit

Reviews around ifit (2.02 of 5)

  • Best of all, this model came with a free IFIT membership, which allows me to choose from a large menu of fitness videos to run on my screen
  • Since the ifit is a joke unless you pay for a premium membership at $99 per year and it gets in the way if you don't
  • But, he said he'd transfer me to an iFit support person immediately, as they had no wait!25 minutes later another guy picked up.
  • I am looking for ways to bypass the stupid ifit
  • I do use ifit with it as well to keep track of everything

Reviews around foot (1.95 of 5)

  • Walking on the pavement ends up hurting my feet and shins, but I never feel any of those things on this treadmill
  • It looses wifi contact easily - its like 5 feet from the router to boot
  • Well the feel if the foot on the belt is hard and no the cushion knobs or turn things do nothing
  • n’t work (defective).

console

Reviews around console (1.49 of 5)

  • Console and buttons died 6 months into owning it with no heavy usage
  • Totally wasted potential here, makes really sad :(The console is a little too far forward, if I'm walking at 3mph, I find I really have to stretch forward to reach the touch screen or my feet start to hit the treadmill track cover at the front of the track
  • Also, the console had a screw pole broken on the back that needs to fix
  • The console stopped working after 2 weeks
  • Drive motor blew up after 1.5 months, console had issues with the speakers fading in and out at various volumes only a couple months after that, then the drive belt blew recently

noise

Reviews around noise (1.44 of 5)

  • Only had this treadmill for 5 months and it's already making a strange noise, like something is dragging or snagging
  • It has gotten to the point where I am afraid to use this treadmill because of the loud noises it makes while running, and I do not want to make the problem worse
  • Only had this treadmill for 5 months and it's already making a strange noise, like something is dragging or snagging
  • Apparently the incline had extra plastic on the case, which caused it to make a loud banging noise when lowering
  • Once I used the incline I noticed there was a funny noise in the in-line position

fan blow

Reviews around fan blow (1.00 of 5)

  • To get that fan blowing anywhere on my face would require me to be over 6' or at a walking pace with my arms draped over the hand bars and leaning forward.
  • No Adjustable Air deflectors (See 2 & 6 Month updates below) - The fan blows in a fixed position and cannot be adjusted to blow higher or lower
  • I can't walk faster than 2mph if I want to have the fan blow on my face, anything faster and my stride is too large and I hit the motor cover at the front of the track
  • Others mention the fan blowing kind of high, and at 5'8 I can say that it blows right in my face
  • I agree with other reviewers that the fan blows above my head unless I'm really close to the console, and I'm fairly tall, but that's not a big deal to me.

wire

Reviews around wire (1.00 of 5)

  • When I hung up I tested the wire with a meter and all the wires inside the cable are good
  • He said no, the issue is not the wire it is the signal
  • He told me that the issue is the wire
  • So the wire is not the issue
