How long will the NordicTrack Commercial 9.9 last?

The NordicTrack Commercial 9.9 is constructed from steel and weighs over 200 lbs. when fully assembled. It has a maximum capacity of 350 lbs. and is designed for light use by multiple household members. iFit covers the 9.9 with a 10-year frame warranty, 2 years on parts, and 1 year on labor which seems to be the standard in today’s elliptical market. Consumers who know how to properly care for their investment should get many years of service from this machine.

Brief Overview

The NordicTrack Commercial 9.9 is our 2022 4th place Best Buy Winner in the $1,000 - $1,499 price range and has many quality amenities for the beginning to light user. It offers a low-impact, total body workout and has a front drive system with a decent frame design. The 9.9 also comes with a 30-day free membership to iFit transforming the elliptical into a portal to world-wide destinations, elite trainers, and a vast library of on demand workouts for a continued paid subscription. This membership also includes trainer control of adjustable incline and resistance turning up the fun in each and every trekking adventure.

Overall Quality

The NordicTrack Commercial 9.9 has a 20% incline feature that targets more muscle groups than the standard elliptical machine though this one comes with a shorter stride of only 17.5” to 18.7” leaving those of the taller persuasion out of luck for true trekking fun. Magnetic resistance lends silence to workout sessions and a solid 25 lb. flywheel encourages smooth performance and easy transitions between 22 levels of resistance. The console holds 30 preprogrammed workouts targeting fat burning and muscle toning while building up cardio fitness health. In addition, the 9.9 has a 7” smart touchscreen that brings workouts to life on top of displaying pertinent performance stats. Bluetooth capabilities offer the use of speakers for motivational music as frequencies play a big part in cellular rejuvenation and overall fitness health. Other conveniences on the 9.9 include oversized pedals, front-mounted transport wheels, a water bottle holder, and most importantly, a fan to cool the sweaty brow.
