rob1074 This treadmill is the absolute ultimate! 40 degree incline plus WiFi internet so you can watch Netflix while working out. I absolutely love it!

kyoung333 Let me start by saying when the X9 worked right, it was great. It's a nice blend of technology innovation and and comfortable running surface. Now for the bad stuff. We bought our X9 on December 31st to take advantage of the "sale" (seems this thing is always on sale) and had it delivered and assembled within a week. The plastic panels didn't fit flush from the start even though we had it assembled professionally. The android browser stopped working within 2 workouts. A reprogramming flash drive had to be sent to us but it was sent via regular mail and took 10 days. Hmm...so we spend 2k on this thing and we can't get the item that fixes this thing Fed Ex'd? Once we received the flash drive and downloaded the update, it still doesn't work. The maps that I download from Ifit.com don't always make it to the treadmill, the belt is squeaking, the treadmill bed is creaking and it's reading the incline settings incorrectly. After spending a total of 4 hours on the phone (getting through takes sooo long) and speaking with nonchalant reps, they're sending me a new motor. Trust me guys, keep looking.

NiwPix I bought this Treadmill early November. I had it delivered end of November. I assembled it right away and had issues with the alignment of the front and back plastic piece, as well the handles were different heights. I contacted Sears about the bad unit. I was told to contact the manufacturer, which I did. After a few E-Mails with pictures back and forth, they were going to send me replacement parts, and once I receive those, to let them know so they can send a technician in to assemble the replacement parts. 2 Parts were back ordered and didnt arrive until mid January!! I contacted them and set up an appointment for the technician to come out...that was end of January. Technician installed the replacement parts and they STILL did not align. After inquiring with the technician, his exact words were " These are made in China and this is as good as it gets".

Honestly, I am not a picky person, but this machine looks like an unfinished product.

I contacted the manufacturer again and after the first week did not get a reply, inquired again and was offered replacement parts again and to send out a technician. I thought about it for a couple of days and decided the treadmill has to be returned. This thing is brand new and its already causing all kinds of headaches.

I contacted Sears and they said that my 90 day return period ended. I missed it by exactly 12 days....that's the thanks I get for trying to resolve the issue with the manufacturer first, before attempting to return it.

This treadmill would be acceptable for about $1000, but definetely not the $2000 price tag it has.

But whats worse for me, is the help and support I got from Sears...not gonna do that mistake again.Note: This reviewer may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing this review.

OnTheMove This was over 5 yrs of waiting but so very worth it. I have heard that many people have trouble with their IFit working properly. I had NO ISSUES and not a highly tech person, I just sat and read the very small booklet (half dozen pages at best including how to assemble). Followed the on screen steps and VOLIA! I was off and running!I made several maps on google and they were right there on the console. I was able to add premade maps from Ifit as well. Today I ran a competion with people from all over the US -maybe even outside the US. Heavily entertaining to watch countdown clocks for how much longer it should take you, how far to go, and the like, but even more so to feel like you are actually out there on the road as the machine pitches up or down to the map on google. You can feel that you are working out so much more with incline training vs a treadmill (I'll never go back to just a treadmill) Really firm up your upper thighs, legs, and even your back muscles. You can adjust the pitch, time and speed... I love it!Very much worth the wait, and you can enter up to four people on your account with the machine for ifit. Remember it is a monster of a machine, so make sure you measure out your room for it. There are great Youtube videos of how to put it together by a real life buyer, and in the end I probably could have done it myself after watching him. I had mine delivered as I have no idea how I would have gotten this from our truck into the house without a lot of help. Worth the delivery fee, and the guys had it assembled pretty quickly. I also recomend the 5 yr warranty. If nothing else a tech comes out once a year to service and lube your machine at no charge. The cost of those 5 visits alone would be more than the warranty... so in my opinion a good investment for maintance as well as OMG what happened?

Connects easily to facebook so you can post what you have accomplished, where you have been, and if you like, routes that you have taken, or made. You can also email your workouts to you.

Watch for sales on line, it was how we finally could get this baby here... like I said, a five year wait - and well worth it!

Cjboback I needed a machine that could handle my weight and walking stride. I'm 6'4" and 325lbs. My must haves for a unit: alifetime deck & motor warranty; an incline up to 40 degrees and decline 6 degrees; easy to use controls; and lastly have professional programs like the ones at the gym. The hard part was finding one in our budget because when you ask for those features you're looking at a LifeFitness or Precor which are definitely outta my budget at 5 grand +. The NordicTrack X9i Incline trainer is the newest model with great reviews. I took my first walk on it this morning and it's great. The cost is still high at $1999, but anything less in quality I'd destroy. The unit is built like a tank and is as heavy as one. It took a lot of moaning and groaning to get it up the stairs to the second floor. So be prepared to have plenty of help on hand to move it. I took my first walk on it and was very impressed. I felt like I was using the one at the gym. It's noisier than I expected, so no late night runs if you have neighbors. The incline & decline is great and so is the computer functions to go online and do program updates and use I-fit Live. Jillian has motivational messages for you as you workout. At first I found them annoying, but as you are getting towards the end of the work out, I found them motivating. Overall, I recommend this machine and will probably get the extended warranty to protect my purchase.

txbevo I like this incline trainer very much, and use it about 4-5 times a week. It has so many options to vary your workout, from street-view maps of locations all around the world to workout sessions by Hassleback and Michaels. It also allows you to design a workout according to goals you want to achieve. For today's technology, this is a great machine. However, here are some things I'd like to change about it:

When I am doing a programmed workout that has a set speed which is too fast at certain points during the workout, I'd like it to resume the automated speeds after I slow it down for a minute or two.

I would love to program my own workouts so that I can do interval trainings (for example, workouts that allow me to go as fast as I can or on as steep of an incline I can for 1 minute, then slow down for 2 minutes and repeat this pattern for 20 to 30 minutes.)

I would like the pre-programmed maps to include hiking trails at state parks and local municipal parks.

I would like it to be easier to draw an accurate map of hiking trails that I love.

Other than that, I love love love this treadmill. I have lost 4 pounds and gained muscle in my legs using it, and I plan to continue the trend.Note: This reviewer may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing this review.

Dolphinsmile27 Although when I first got the X9i Incline trainer there was an issue with the console, Which was attended to immediately by some very concerned and confidant nordictrack reps, when the initial issue did get resolved,(though it did take a month because part was on backorder) the machine now works like a dream!

It is everything you could want out of a treadmill with the added additions of the wifi interface to make you want to keep going and going. You can read your mail and no problem with basic internet functions, However, if you want to watch your favorite TV show, you may not be able to do it unless you have souped up cable. I think that their may be limited capacity on what the computer can do and is not an Ipad. But There are no issues connecting to the ifit programing with grade A number one workouts. The google maps mostly map main streets and some street views may not be available but still fun ! You still have map view and satelite view.The cushy platform absorbs impact on running or power walking tremendously and the upright handle bars are a definite nececity with a decent incline.

You will sweat with this machine and can do it in minimal time! Give it a chance and your body will love you while keeping your mind entertained! And Of course, never buy anything at full price!



panoramic4 Machine quickly developed several electronic problems. Abruptly stops when you are walking on it. Incline goes out of calibration. NordicTrack lack the technical expertise to diagnose, slow to react and control boards are on national back order!

Ole45mag Got this machine Friday. Hauled it upstairs Friday night. Put it together...the coverings on each side of the handlebars don't fit right making it look like another cheap machine. The heads of the bolts are too big and don't allow the plastic covering to fit right thus causing it to bulge and look totally defective. A $2000 machine that looks like a garage sale machine originally put together by a 9 year old.
