Nordic Track has been around for sometime. They are known for quality exercise equipment and quality customer service. Ive talked with Nordic Track representatives on numerous occasions and the level of service is outstanding. Im a big believer in customer service because in my experience, a company with good customer support will usually have a good product.
The Nordic Track CXT is a good choice for people who want a lot of features for a small investment.
The Nordic Track CXT 910 ($599.00) is a fairly large home elliptical trainer. At 175 pounds, the CXT 910 is pretty heavy. Dont worry, the CXT 910 comes with wheels located at the front of the wheel base. This way you can easily transport the CXT 910 from room to room.
The Nordic Tack CXT 910 uses an automatic variable electromagnetic resistance system. You can change the resistance settings at any time with the push of a button.
The resistance is very smooth and quiet even during the most intense workouts.
The Nordic Track comes with adjustable peddles that can be set at 5 positions. This is a very important features since it can accommodate all potential exercisers in your home.
There are 10 different resistance levels to choose from. More than enough resistance levels to choose from. Simple touch the resistance button and you automatically adjust the resistance without interrupting your workout.
At 16", the Nordic Track CXT 910 is not the most expansive but given the fact that the elliptical trainer comes with adjustable peddles, it can accommodate most exercisers.
The display console on the Nordic Track CXT 910 is very easy to read and very understandable. The large LCD window tracks all the necessary feedback you will need for a good workout.
You get electronics readouts that tell you calories burned, speed, heart rate, distance travelled, time, and speed.
The Nordic Track CXT 910 comes with 2 heart rate controlled programmes and 4 pre programmed courses which includes a pace coach. The display console also gives you a visual representation of your workout.
The Nordic Track CXT 910 comes with grip pulse sensors. Simply grab the handle bars and you get your pulse. The grip pulse sensor reads the heartbeat detected from the thumb pulse and feeds the data back via the console.
The great thing about hand grip pulse sensors is that you get your heart rate feedback immediately. This way you can always exercise at your target heart rate.
The Nordic Track CXT 910 comes with dual action handle bars for a total body workout.
