Benefits of the Nordictrack Commercial 2950Treadmill
The Nordictrack Commercial 2950 treadmill comes with something most home treadmills do not – a built in TV.

Benefits of the 2015 Nordictrack Commercial 2950 Treadmill:
15 Inch Eye-Level, HD TV
The TV is at eye level, which means you’re not looking down, and straining your neck as you watch.
Plus it’s one of the largest TV’s you can find at a full 15 inches across.
It comes cable ready and because it’s not part of the console, this reduces shaking of the TV when you’re running. You can easily change the channels and the volume level from your console controls
Full-Color Touch Screen Web Browser
This is the largest web browser that Nordictrack makes (ten inches across).
It’s full-color touch screen design makes it easy to read emails, watch Youtube videos or surf the net while you walk. (You can also use the touch screen when you’re not online to view your workout stats.)
Plus the web browser integrates with iFit LIVE so you can watch your workout progress with Google Maps™ Street View in full color (more on that below).
The web browser is separate from the TV – so you can watch TV while you surf if you want.
Extra Wide Belt
The 2950 treadmill upgrades to a wider 22 inch belt. Along with the extra long 60 inches, this is a great size for runners or taller users. You can really stretch out and enjoy the extra room. This is also great for taller users who need the extra space.
This treadmill also has adjustable cushioning so you can choose a deck firmness that suits you best.
In the “on” position, you get full-deck cushioning with dampeners at six points across the frame that absorb the shock of your steps.
Want a firmer feeling deck? No problem, just turn the cushioning off for more of a road feel.
iFit LIVE Built-In
With iFit LIVE you can connect the 2950 treadmill to the Internet and download new workouts from celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels.
You can also map out new trails to run with Googlemaps and watch actual landmarks pass you by in the console screen with Google streetview – very cool.
You can also compete against iFit friends online or track your workout activity over time to see how far you’ve come.
Plus, because iFit comes built-in, you don’t have to buy the iFit LIVE module with this treadmill as you do with some other Nordictrack models.
Adjustable Console Height
Unlike the two other commercial treadmills – the 1750 or the 2450, the 2950 treadmill has a height adjustment on the console.
So you can move the console up or down vertically to ensure the TV is at eye level.
Integrated Accessories Tray with 2nd Cooling Fan
Stash your towel or remote on the accessories try between the deck posts.
This tray also adds in a 2nd cooling fan (along with the one on the main console) to give you double cooling power. Not a big deal, but a nice luxury touch all the same.
Free Wireless Heart Rate Monitor
A lot of people prefer the wireless heart rate monitor because it’s more accurate (and easier to use since you don’t have to keep grasping the hand sensors).
This treadmill comes with a free wireless heart rate monitor for you.
The 3% decline on this treadmill helps you add in some crosstraining to your workout (you also get 15% incline).
This also works with the iFit LIVE and Googlemaps.
So the treadmill inclines and declines automatically to simulate the actual trail you’re walking – very virtual reality.
If you’re looking for the ultimate TV-treadmill (without paying $4000 for a health club model), the Nordictrack Commercial 2950 is one of your best options.
You get a strong, well-constructed treadmill – with an extra large belt and one of the largest motors Nordictrack makes.,
Plus, the entertainment options are incredible – surf the web, watch TV, listen to your iPod, download new workouts, run trails all over the world…this treadmill basically does everything except run for you – 5 stars.
