How long will the NordicTrack EXP 7i last?

The NordicTrack EXP 7i folding treadmill is a durable machine weighing almost 200 lbs. It has the capacity to hold users up to a 300 lb. capacity and is tailored more towards lighter users who plan on walking their way to fitness glory. The EXP 7i comes with a low warranty with only 10 years for the frame, 2 years for parts, and 1 full year on labor. It also has a rather large footprint at 6.4 feet long despite its space saving ability made possible by the hydraulic folding mechanism. With light use and proper care and maintenance, a user could get many workouts from this exercise machine.

Brief Overview

The NordicTrack EXP 7i is a basic folding treadmill that is rather bulky in its design compared to other models that are more aerodynamic in nature. It has a rather small display screen that gets lost in the huge console and comes across as rather awkward in its build. Purchase of the EXP 7i offers a 30-day iFit membership option that allows users the ability to travel the world and access globally known fitness expert led classes, but a paid membership is required to truly optimize iFit benefits.

Overall Quality

The NordicTrack EXP 7i folding treadmill is designed for beginners or those starting back on their fitness journeys. It has a 3.0 CHP motor that reaches 12 MPH max speed though hard use is discouraged to reassure longevity. The EXP 7i offers a 20” x 60” running belt which is tailored for longer strides and users can intensify workouts to higher levels with a 12% incline that maximizes lower body workouts. Cushioning is built into the deck and suspension system to offer maximum comfort for every impact made.
The display screen on the NordicTrack EXP 7i folding treadmill is a rather disappointing 7” though it is a touchscreen and offers the ability to connect to the iFit network. The overall console has a bulky feel that is neither sleek nor aerodynamically designed so users into stylish models should keep searching. It does come with Bluetooth capabilities allowing users to connect headphones along with a fan to help cool off those reaching peak performance levels. There is also a button for quick connection to iFit for those looking to travel around the globe while working out with world-class trainers.
