NordicTrack A.C.T. Commercial 7 Review
We usually like any of the NordicTrack A.C.T. Commercial series machines. They have some interesting add-ons on top of the compact design and quality engineering on their machines.
18-20-22 inches adjustable stride lengths
In our $1299 category, the A.C.T. Commercial 7 offers the most workout options because of its adjustable stride. In this category, not all trainers can give you this comfortable selection of stride length while maintaining the compact design of the machine. In this trainer, you can set it from 18" to 22" depending on how tall or short you are or what muscle groups you want to work out.
Generous workout programs
What users like most in this trainer is the 35 workout programs it offers. Who wouldn't like this machine when it's stuffed with so many workout choices? Coupling the 35 workout programs is its 24 resistance levels. Usually, you can only 16-20 resistance settings on an elliptical. Icon is generous enough to offer these extra resistance levels that guarantee more workout choices.
Extra features for comfortable use
What we like is the extra features this trainer offers. It has oversized cushioned pedals, fans and Mp3 player support, and cushioned grips with remote controls. With these enhancements, it'll surely captivate first time users. While the foot pedal design, grips, fans and remote control keep you comfortable, you can also enjoy listening to your favorite songs by plugging in you MP3 player to console's built-in sound system.
The NordicTrack A.C.T. Commercial 7 comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame, 5 years on parts, and 2 years on labor. This is a pretty awesome warranty offered by Icon considering the features this trainer offers. It is always good to know that there's always someone to back you when using a $1299 product. This just shows how confident the manufacturer is over its quality.
The only thing that makes you really hate this trainer is that it has no incline which is a downer. Considering its price, it should have an incline. Other trainers in this price range are inclined pretty well already. Well, if you don't mind working out in an un-inclined position, this trainer is perfect for you. But who would?
Our verdict: Well, aside from it has no incline, the NordicTrack A.C.T. Commercial 7 is a pretty awesome machine. You get more than what you pay for. At $1299, you get an industry standard quality trainer, excellent parts and labor warranty, and extra features that'll make comfortable during your workouts.
