Then only thing that I can figure out, as to why this machine is $1999, is that NordicTrack is trying to buy market share.
The NordicTrack Elite Commercial Elliptical is a derivation of the Freemotion e7.5 and e7.7 ellipticals that have been especially durable in the specialty market. We have called the Freemotion versions of these machines some of the best values on the market. That was before we saw this machine. You get an incredible amount of quality for the money.
