NordicTrack C 990 Treadmill Review - $999.00

  • Rating

  • How Long Will The NordicTrack C 990 Last?

    First off, one of the most important components in your machine's lifespan will be the environment that it is kept it. So, don't treat it like that poor dog locked in the car on a hot day at the grocery store. If you would break the window for the poor dog, then make some space inside for the machine you paid for. Taking simple steps like this will help to ensure the longevity of your investment.

    With that said, the NordicTrack Commercial 990 is a well-built machine with a good amount of quality built in for the $1,000 dollar price range. If you enjoy light to moderate exercise, you should expect a good amount of years out of this treadmill.
  • Brief Overview

    NordicTrack is a relatively new brand that has made a name for themselves through their loyalty to technology-heavy machines. Still, we remain a company who appreciates functionality over pizazz. With the Commercial 990, however, NordicTrack has struck a respectable balance between the two. With a decent warranty, good build, quality parts, and numerous programs, we have awarded the Commercial 990 First Place on our 2019 Best Buy List in the $700 to $999 dollar category.
  • Overall Quality

    NordicTrack is a relatively new brand that has made a name for themselves through their loyalty to technology-heavy machines. Still, we remain a company who appreciates functionality over pizazz. With the Commercial 990, however, NordicTrack has struck a respectable balance between the two. With a decent warranty, good build, quality parts, and numerous programs, we have awarded the Commercial 990 First Place on our 2019 Best Buy List in the $700 to $999 dollar category.

    We also like the warranty that NordicTrack has included. While not the best in this price range, the three-year parts, and one-year labor warranty help add an extra value to the Commercial 990. This type of value also indicates that NordicTrack has faith in their own product which extends ease to the consumer.

    While the increase in technology is a nice addition, we do have a bit of a caution. The Commercial 990 comes with iFit Coach compatibility and includes a one-year free membership. After the first year is up, it will be your choice to pay at least $30 dollars a month. Some exercisers who need a little motivation require loud muscle heads who run around the Eiffel Tower to keep their mind off the sweat dripping into their eyes. If you are one of these users, then you may want to consider the additional costs required to fully utilize this machine. If you are not and have gotten used to the stinging eyes, then maybe you will enjoy a free year and simply use the machine quietly after that. We do not like, however, how NordicTrack is seemingly forcing people to join in on the iFit bandwagon as you almost have to purchase a membership in order to get your money's worth out of this treadmill.

  • History

    NordicTrack has created a balance between style and substance in their Commercial 990. They have included a good amount of programming while also paying attention to the build and quality that they built into this machine. While we are a bit wary of the iFit membership marketing, we do find this to be a good machine for light to moderate users. The First Place Winner on the 2019 Best Buy list for the $700 to $999 dollar category is likely to be a quality machine for the price.
