At this point, it doesn’t surprise us anymore that NordicTrack has once again hit the mark with its upgraded NordicTrack Incline Trainer X9i treadmill. The latest version performs exceptionally quietly and is equipped with all the latest technological advancements to enhance and make the most out of your workouts.
Features of the NordicTrack Incline Trainer X9i
– Incline Training:
The platform of the NordicTrack X9i Incline Trainer can be used at a maximum incline of 40%, a decline of maximum 6% or simply flat. According to the popular celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels, training at a full 40% incline will burn five times the calories as compared to walking on a flat surface. The decline training on the other hand is excellent for toning muscles.
– Less Stress on Joints:
Surprisingly, incline training is gentler on the knees than regular training because of the way your body weight shifts.
Additionally, the X9i features Reflex Cushioning, which initiates the push-off without any physical shock to the joints and the landing point is softer. The deck of this machine is better for your joints than walking outdoors, enabling you to exercise comfortably for extended periods.
The workout platform of the X9i Incline trainer measures a spacious 60 x 22 inches.
The 3.0 continuous motor on this treadmill is commercial quality and comes with a lifetime warranty. It works efficiently all the while maintaining changes in the speed and incline quietly.
– Quiet Deck:
With the latest 2016 version of the X9i you will get WhisperQuiet Deck technology which absorbs the sound from footsteps. This is great for at-home workouts.
– Touchscreen with Internet Browser:
The screen on the X9i is a 7-inch full screen touchscreen display with an Android browser. Feel free to check your social media and keep up to date with the latest entertainment headlines as you work out! Even better, access the 44 built in workout programs from the touchscreen as well as track your progress.
The machine is also compatible with iFit so you can access iFit’s extensive library of workout videos and even sync them with Google Street Views using Google Maps. The incline and decline will adjust automatically to mimic the terrain of the actual area selected on the map.
This NordicTrack has a port compatible with Apple’s iPod and a set of 3-inch speakers.
– Heart Rate Monitors:
Monitor your heart rate wirelessly via the Bluetooth chest strap that is included in the box. If that is not your preference, you may use the Touch sensor built into the handlebars of the trainer.
The warranty of the NordicTrack X9i Incline trainer covers the frame, deck and motor for a lifetime. The components are covered for five years and the labor is for two years.
Our team is a huge fan of NordicTrack and the updated X9i for 2016 is excellent with its connectivity, technological enhancements, incline and decline, platform measurements etc. No wonder it is one of the company’s favourite models.
We suggest you compare the X9i with the X7i and X11i before finalizing your purchase.
