The actual mechanics of the Commercial 1750 are of upstanding quality and should last you many worry-free years with proper daily care. With that said, the increase in programming that accompanies the bells and whistles of compatibility software can be a cause for concern. Like always, we caution treadmill users to keep in mind that NordicTrack specializes in fitness equipment, not computer software. Still, the Commercial 1750 should hold up well with a heavy jogger or light-moderate runner.
The Commercial 1750 is one of NordicTrack’s quality machines that comes with a durable build and decent amount of workout programs. While we have some reservations with the iFit membership that is now standard for Icon's (NordicTrack's parent company) higher-end products, we do still like to see a treadmill built with a balance of style and functionality. This treadmill has been built with notable quality and improved reliability, which has helped make our decision to award the Commercial 1750 with First Place in our 2019 Best Buy list among the $1,300 to $1,499 dollar treadmills.
NordicTrack brought the Commercial 1750 back with an updated design and additions to the model to improve upon its reliability and performance. This machine is an exceptional option for users who are not interested in extreme programs but are simply looking to get in shape with an average day to day use. The build is one of the most durable in this price range while the warranty is there to help support such a build. A five-year parts and a two-year warranty are pretty standard for treadmills in this price range, but still, show an added amount of value.
Two common problems that accompany the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 that accompany this machine, however, are the iFit component as well as the poor customer service that comes with Icon products. The iFit coach is a fitness app that is not necessarily required to be able to use this machine but is a necessity to get the most value for what you are purchasing. Without the subscription, the value is not fully optimized. Furthermore, while iFit offers more cost-efficient programs, the subscription that comes with this machine is “iFit Coach” which is $39 dollars a month. While NordicTrack offers a one-year free subscription with the purchase of the machine, the user must decide if having a mass of muscle run with him or her is worth nearly $470 dollars a year. We recommend the Commercial 1750’s alternative- the NordicTrack 5750- if the iFit coach is not a priority.
It is important to keep in mind that NordicTrack finds value in the iFit subscription which raises the price. The question then arises if the machine is worth the price tag without the technology. Even so, the utility of the Commercial 1750 is still standard for this price range. While we have awarded this treadmill for its ability to add such programming and utility for this price, if you are not interested in a program heavy treadmill, your dollar may go further with a less technology-saturated machine. Secondly, NordicTrack's customer service department is quite the dreaded monster that is worse than kale smoothies and worn-out soles. While the company has certainly upped its game in quality parts, the culture of the customer service department has yet to improve.

Bought a C1750. Seemed ok for a while and then got a clicking noise with every step. Found a weld on the deck bumper support and frame cracked. Sent Nordictrack a video and they sent us a brand new replacement. Sounds great huh! New treadmill didn’t last very long before computer control problems began. Got cracked frame repair welded and started using it instead of the faulty replacement. So now it wants to be permanently in the declined position. Run the calibration cycle, level it and in a one hour run it’s back in the decline position. Not the best of luck from two C1750s.
We all loved this until it broke about 6 months after we got it. First the speeds started to be way off. One day it just stopped working. The control board was replaced. It worked again but I had to put it at 10.0 just to get it to run 10 min miles. Then we were sent a new console. One day while running the belt just stopped and I went flying off it. Now we are being sent anew motor. We will see if it does anything. Yesterday I turned the treadmill switch on and the belt started running the console did not think it was. How dangerous is this? We spent a lot for a decent treadmill.
Treadmill is great, customer service excellent. Their white glove service is a ZERO. The company outsources its "white glove" delivery and assembly. Two guys showed up- caused damage on my den wall, knocked a picture off . The moron stripped assembly screws in the machine (in the arms), cant adjust. Customer service great, credited me white glove charge, ordered the parts for a technician to fix machine. It has been over a month since purchase, waiting for this issue to be resolved. Customer Service = a "5", delivery and installation "ZERO".
