The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 folding treadmill has a substantial build and is designed to last through moderate to heavy use for many years by joggers and light runners alike. It is robust and weighs around 300 lbs. fully assembled and can hold up to 300 lbs. of workout weight. The 2450 comes with surprising low warranties despite its space saving and robust design but will last years with proper maintenance and care. Icon backs the 2450 with a 10-year frame warranty, 2 years on parts, and 1 year on labor.
The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 folding treadmill comes with an upgraded 4.0 CHP motor which enables users to enjoy the 12 MPH high speed which gives sprinters a decent sweat when fully engaged. The 2450 also offers a 15% incline but throws in a -3% decline to the mix for additional intensified workout pleasure while the 22” x 60” running area allows users of all sizes the ability to stretch their stride and add in optional upper body workouts without worries of smacking the treadmill arms. A patented suspension lets users choose between lower impacts or a real road feel when exercising while trainer led workouts mirror actual outside terrain. The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 folding treadmill has a 14” touchscreen display allowing a more immersive workout when utilizing the iFit membership subscription. It has been upgraded with better graphics and the console has additional Bluetooth connectivity allowing the use of headphones during workout periods. There are also one touch controls located on the console allowing quick changes to speed and incline for users not involved in trainer led workouts. The 2450 is a delightful mix of functioning mechanical parts and technology that is wrapped up in a decent build for those with larger budgets who plan on purchasing fitness machines.
Let’s start with the good qualities. We like that NordicTrack has developed a way to include such large touchscreens in their treadmills. There are not many models on the market that have decent builds and touchscreens for this kind of price. We also like that NordicTrack included forty pre-programmed workouts along with a one-year-free iFit subscription. Our average amongst our top four treadmills in this price range is about twenty-eight built-in workouts. So, you not only receive a chance to test our NordicTrack's partner programming, but you can also enjoy multiple workouts. <br/_><br/_> In terms of functionality, the Commercial 2450 also offers a number of features. This model comes with a twenty-two by a sixty-inch walking belt which is about three inches bigger than our top four average. The Commercial 2450 also comes with a fifteen percent incline and three percent decline ability that is unique to Icon treadmills (Icon being the parent company of NordicTrack). Though this model does not have the strongest, best quality build in this price range, you do receive a number of features that may help to challenge your workout. <br/_><br/_> Of course, where would our reviews be without a little yin and yang? First, we would encourage you to look into some of NordicTrack’s newer models. The Commercial 2450 has not received as many updates and you may find that you can receive a similar NordicTrack treadmill with better features for about the same price. We are also not that impressed with the Commercial 2450’s five-year parts and two-year labor warranty mainly because of the company that stands behind it. When you look at the value of different warranties, you have to keep in mind the type of service that they guarantee. Think about a promise to remodel your kitchen from Walmart and one from Lowes. I would much prefer the Lowes promise. Similarly, Icon brands are scarred by Icon’s poor customer service. Subsequently, Icon brand warranties are not as valuable as warranties from more trusted brands. And with this higher price range, it is important to look at the higher-end brands that start to offer models for a similar amount of money. <br/_><br/_> Lastly, we typically add our two cents about the iFit subscription. NordicTrack decides the price of their treadmills with the iFit subscription in mind. This subscription typically costs about thirty dollars a month which is about a four-hundred-dollar value. The free year that NordicTrack, therefore, could either be seen as an added value or an overcharge. There are some who like iFit but there are also those who don’t care for it. If you do not like the iFit Coach, then you could be paying for something you do not want. Additionally, the Commercial 2450’s value is also based on the iFit programming. If at the end of your free year you decide that the iFit subscription is not worth the money, then the value of your treadmill decreases substantially which may be something to keep in mind.

NordicTrack Commercial 1750 folding treadmill is a workhorse of a machine packed with quality features and a nice display screen. The ability to take advantage of a 30-day free iFit membership allows users the ability to travel the world on a quality workout machine and has made it into our Best Buy list due to its overall value and still affordable price. Keep in mind there are many models in the treadmill world that vacillate between features and options, and it is worth the time it takes to compare prices and warranties before purchasing.
It's a good machine but the software is lacking. Once you start exercising you cannot browse anything else on the screen without stopping your workout (if you want to scroll thru the videos etc). Another dumb thing is the screen never shuts down even though it says shutting down in 5 mins. I called customer service and they said I have to power off and start every time or use the reset button. It takes time to start up and you cannot just get on it and run. It is the iFit version of software and the earlier software that NordicTrack used seemed to be better in terms of flexibility.
This treadmill has been a huge disappointment. I purchased it two years ago. Three months after it was delivered and professionally set up, the console failed. It took two months to get a replacement, and the part came without instructions. I contacted customer service, who recommended I watch a video of the installation of a console on a different treadmill. This was only the beginning of my issues. Customer service is horrible. IFit software leaves a lot to be desired. The machine routinely boots up and then throws a "connection error requiring a power cycle." Buy something else.
Although this unit is advertised with Bluetooth Audio, there is zero ability to play any sound on headphones, wired or Bluetooth with this unit. This is hugely disappointing and a very costly mistake on our part, of which Nordictrack will do nothing about stating it is our own fault for presuming this when we read that it had Bluetooth Audio. Their Bluetooth Audio is ONLY for playing sound on their speakers out loud on the machine. Super annoying.
The motor control board failed on our Nordicktrack Commercial 2450 after 1 year of light use. The belt starts for one second and stops. Customer service ordered a new control board as it is under warranty but will take 2 months to arrive. I am very disappointed in this treadmill given the price point. I had an old ProForm treadmill that lasted many years and thought this would do the same but this is not the case.
This was advertised with Bluetooth audio, and it absolutely has NO Bluetooth audio capability. After over an hour of me waiting, customer service told me this model does not have Bluetooth and had no explanation for why it is advertised as such. Now the belt is making a popping noise, lubricating it with the pricey NordicTrack maintenance kit didn’t work, and the manual gives no guidance whatsoever. I will not buy another NordicTrack product, and I have regret for not just spending more for the pricier competitor and getting a better product with real customer service.
