How long will the NordicTrack Commercial 2950 last?

The NordicTrack Commercial 2950 folding treadmill is built of durable materials and weighs around 330 lbs. fully assembled. It can hold users up to a 300 lb. capacity and offers a space saving design that will fit neatly into any home setting. Despite its commercial grade features, Icon has chosen rather limited warranties on the 2950 and only covers 10 years on the frame, 2 years on parts, and 1 year on labor. Luckily, we know after many years of reviewing this model that it is built to last and will give moderate to heavy users a run for their money for many years to come. Keep in mind, proper care and maintenance will add longevity to any electro-mechanical machine.

Brief Overview

The NordicTrack Commercial 2950 folding treadmill is a marvelous design of workout delight with a pleasing blend of both functionality and technology that has existed in the NordicTrack brand for years. It has won numerous Best Buy awards from us in previous years and is a quality offering that is competitive on every level with other treadmill models. With an additional iFit subscription, users are skillfully transported into a world-class luxury experience with every engrossing workout session.

Overall Quality

The NordicTrack Commercial 2950 folding treadmill offers an eye-catching 22” HD touchscreen bringing immersive workout experiences to life with the flick of a hand. The console offers faster Wi-Fi and improved graphics along with the ability to connect to headphones with Bluetooth capabilities. Google maps and iFit membership offer world shattering workout options for each individual exercise experience and shows users iFit is completely aware of the need for touchscreen action when engaging a larger consumer base.
The NordicTrack Commercial 2950 folding treadmill offers a powerful 4.25 CHP motor that is designed to for a maximum speed of 12 MPH. While that might sound low, it is quite comparable to other models and gives even sprinters opportunities to break into large amounts of sweat. Inclines of up to 15% add intensities to every workout but it is the -3% decline that really activates those rarely used muscles and brings on the fat burning. A choice in the suspension level lets users choose either lower impacts or simulated road terrains while the ample 22” x 60” running area allows longer strides and optimal performance by those of all heights and sizes.

Randall- Not worth it Mar 07, 2019

I purchased the commercial 2950 directly from Nordictrack in Nov 2017. I immediately had problems with the software which they sent out a whole new monitor. Overall, the machine works. The giant monitor is pointless since you aren't able to watch t.v. or movies or anything. If you sign up for iFit which costs hundreds a year, then you can participate in their video-based workouts. Watch out if you get any type of motion sickness. The camera pans around and your body is going straight. iFit should be included with the larger price tag, but it's a business so it's not.

Duncan- Don't be fooled by the fancy 22" HD MonitorMar 14, 2019

This treadmill is not worth the price. NordicTrack creates the impression that you are getting a 22 inch HD monitor that will be useful. There is no way to access or browse the internet. I check with NordickTrack Customer service and they confirm that there is no way to access the internet or do anything with the big beautiful monitor other than iFit. For some reason, there are third-party reviews that claim there is browser capability with the internet. I have to wonder how the third-party reviewers got this wrong. This costs $700 more than the 2450. Why?

Don- Terrible customer supportApr 22, 2019

The treadmill itself seems solid but the touchscreen was defective on arrival with no sound. I have been trying for over one month to get a replacement with no luck.

Ryan - Broken When DeliveredJul 22, 2019

The screen was broken when it was delivered and after four weeks of trying to get it fixed including at one point being told at one point to fix myself we are returning and they won't refund us the 500 dollar delivery and set up even though it never worked. Stay away from this company as they do not care about their customers and are very shady

Kev Walker- Total rubbishMay 16, 2020

Just bought one, big mistake. Assembly instructions a re reasonable, it does take two people to assemble. But, four to carry the box. The quality of the product is substandard for the price, very few of the components fit together snuggly and as an engineer I find this annoying. On start up the machine took the wifi settings without a hitch, promptly ran a firmware update and unceremoniously failed on start up. Leaving a very bright white, useless screen. Best, most expensive paperweight I've ever bought. Now I have to fight the equally useless Nordic support system. Don't buy one....

Joey- Deck broke after 10 monthsOct 04, 2020

The first issue was no sound, the second issue was a bad control module. The third issue was a cracked deck. Little support from NordicTrack, they just send a part and say good luck. Do not buy!!!
