How long will the NordicTrack Commercial X22i last?

Heavy joggers to moderate runners are best suited for the NordicTrack Commercial Incline Trainer X22i and will get a long life from this model with proper care and maintenance. It is a mighty machine weighing almost 400 lbs. and can hold users up to a 300 lb. max capacity. The Trainer X22i is built to last and can stand up to even daily use. It is disappointing to note the warranties offered by Icon are rather low and only cover 10 years on the frame, 2 years on parts, and 1 year on labor.

Brief Overview

The NordicTrack Commercial Incline Trainer X22i is a revolutionary idea built onto a treadmill foundation that runs the gamut of new ways to work muscles and still have the best entertainment options available on the market with a paid subscription. Without the paid iFit membership, the $3000 spent on the X22i is not quite worth the cost despite the quality parts that encompass the rather titillating design.

Overall Quality

The NordicTrack Commercial Incline Trainer X22i is a beast of a machine with its bull like sled grips and integrated push bar that offer new ways to burn fat and build muscle tone. It also sports new cushioning aspects that lower painful impacts for users trotting along the ample 22” x 60” running space. A 4.0 CHP motor continuously drives the X22i up to speeds of 12 MPH while users will be thrilled to find a unique 40% incline and -6% decline feature to stimulate every serious athlete’s deepest desire for the ultimate workout experience. The NordicTrack Commercial Incline Trainer X22i offers immersive workouts with an eye-popping 22” display screen that comes to life with the benefit of an iFit membership. The console offers quite a selection of built-in programs, integrated speakers, faster Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to headphones for optimal hearing during workout sessions. There are also one touch controls that change speed and incline along with a fan to cool sweaty brows. All of this comes with a free 30-day iFit membership that requires a credit card to access on an ongoing basis.

tim- not as much quality as you thinkSep 23, 2019

The x22i trainer is quite the machine. My wife and I are frequently on the machine doing its many programs and workouts. We absolutely love the machine for all its workouts and programs. Ifit is also a great plus as I do runs from where I grew up with google maps, NOW the but. I have had the machine less than 2 years and have had to replace the deck twice. Yes, TWICE!!!. My wife and I are not 300# people and frankly both of us running on the treadmill at the same time would barely tip the scale at 300#.

Jason- Poor service X22i Feb 06, 2020

Ordered a X22i and after shipping was lost in some warehouse and delivery was going to be past the first payment i cancelled my order on January 23. NordicTrack said that my warranty was still running even though it wasn’t delivered and my iFit as well. They also just delivered the treadmill to my house after I had to contact the shipping company to try and stop the delivery today. They delivered it in the rain in my driveway while I was at work. They told me from the return department that I was responsible for moving their product they own now which is 400 pounds. Don’t buy from these people.

James Hunter- Not ready for releaseApr 03, 2020

Great idea but poorly executed. This is an average treadmill with great features, if they worked! In my opinion this machine is not ready for release. The tablet locks up and malfunctions regularly. There have been several updates, which are not easy to implement. It has gotten better after the updates but still does not preform properly. I have asked for a repair, replacement, and even a refund. They do not honor their factory or extended warranty, which I did purchase. I regret this purchase!

SSing- Two X22I in three monthSep 07, 2020

Where do I start, I am very disappointed in all the "experts "on YouTube and everywhere else on the internet . Every single one of them never once did a long-term test on the X22I. At a first glance, its a wonderful piece of machine I'll make this short.Got my 1st X22! Early May 2020, it broke down late July, belt won't turn, fan not working and screen not responding....and of course it broke down after 30 days return period. Phoned support and customer service they agreed to send me my second X22I. X22I # 2 arrived early July and it broke down 6wks same problem. I DONT recommend this item

Kristian- Major regrets. Lemon. Don't buy. Please.Nov 18, 2020

My wife purchased the x22i in May, 2020. Broke in the first weeks. Took another month to get a part and to schedule a tech visit. Worked for one day. Scheduled another tech visit. More waiting. Worked for another 2 months. Then the machine broke a third time. Took another month for parts and time to schedule a tech visit. Did you buy the warranty? Expect to argue to have it be honored. Your patience will get a better work out than your body with this machine. Don't buy. Don't get anything NordicTrack. Move on. Seriously. Worst decision ever.

Markus Sonntag- commercial x22i reviewJan 25, 2021

Dead in the water after < 90 days. Really enjoyed it right up until that point. For a 3000+ dollar machine to have customer service be utterly unable to do anything this soon after purchase is shocking and really makes me feel like we have been duped. Right now the supposed part fix ("controller board") is not even in existence -- it is out of stock with no ETA. The icon won't allow the return of the machine nor is it likely that they will replace it. I thought it was a good decision to go with a long standing company. Miserable experience, most regrettable/useless purchase I have made in years.
