A person guys have already heard me record that I’ m very happy with the new treadmill purchase. I bought the particular NordicTrack C 990. (This post/review isn’ t sponsored at all). I wanted to share a more formal overview of it because: Lots of you have questioned me about both the model.
Leading the NordicTrack C Series, the C 990 Treadmill remains one of the best buys in its price bracket. Its top selling points include a roomy 60″ x 20″ track, an automated 12% incline, and 32 built-in workout programs. This treadmill also has wireless heart rate monitoring, although the Bluetooth chest strap is sold separately. It’s also iFit enabled, which adds in all of the remarkable features that come with that subscription service.
The tablet bracket and 7″ LED is an important combination to remember when you’re comparing treadmills. NordicTrack treadmills have different combinations of consoles and extras:
Each has either a 7″ LED, a 7″ touchscreen with Internet browser or a 10″ touchscreen with Internet browser.
Some also have a tablet bracket or a high-def TV.
We’re impressed by the C 990. At the same time, NordicTracks with even better features and longer warranties are often available at lower prices. Always compare prices on the NordicTrack homepage before you commit to any of their machines.
Workout Variety: The NordicTrack C 990 has a diverse array of 32 workout applications. You can work on speed, endurance, and weight loss goals with programs that are customized to your fitness level. Whether following the pre-set workouts or use manual mode, choose from fifteen incline levels and 12 speeds.
iFit Enabled: The C 990 is iFit enabled. This feature is the only difference we see between this unit and the often cheaper C 970 PRO. (The C 970 is only iFit compatible, which means you’d need to add a module). Using iFit requires a subscription, but you can download personalized workout programs, track your performance, compete in treadmill races with your Facebook friends, and virtually workout across the globe via Google Maps.
Console Screen: The 7″ backlit LED console is easy to read at any angle. Speed, time, distance, calories, and heart rate are displayed. A quarter-mile digital RaceTrack helps you visualize progress. This is a simple console compared with the full color touchscreens on other NordicTracks, but it gets the job done.
Tablet Bracket: The tablet bracket lets you personalize your workout experience. You can use the tablet for a variety of functions like alternative fitness apps or streaming YouTube video to make exercise time fly by.
Audio: The C 990 includes an InterMix Acoustics sound system with 3″ speakers. A smartphone-compatible music port lets you stream MP3s directly through the treadmill’s console.
High Quality Track: This treadmill’s smooth-running track measures 60″ x 20″, making it long enough for most runners. It provides a nice amount of grip and has adjustable cushioning.
FlexSelect Cushioning: FlexSelect cushioning is an on/off feature. Turn the cushioning on to get excellent joint protection. Turn it off to simulate outdoor conditions and estimate your performance in outdoor competitions.
Power Incline: A one-touch button lets you easily adjust the C 990’s incline from 0% up to 12%. This feature can help dramatically increase calorie burn and tone targeted muscle groups. Unfortunately unlike other treadmills (such as the NordicTrack 1750) there is no automated decline.
Commercial Motor: This unit’s 3.0 CHP motor is designed to operate quietly and has a lifetime warranty. It’s comparable to 3.5 HP motors from other brands.
SpaceSaver: Gain floor space when the treadmill’s not in use. The SpaceSaver telescoping design makes it easy to vertically fold the machine and stuff it away.
Capacity: The maximum user weight is 325 pounds, which is above average.
