NordicTrack NTEL71218 Commercial 12.9 Elliptical Reviews [2022]

The NordicTrack NTEL71218 Commercial 12.9 Elliptical  could be the ideal elliptical for you if you’re looking for a machine that can provide both comfort and convenience. In 2017, it was voted the best elliptical trainer in the NordicTrack NTEL71218 Commercial 12.9 Elliptical  Series. This elliptical trainer is designed to make assembling, moving, and using the machine as simple as possible. Most of its performance specifications are similar to those of the SE7i, but it has more sophisticated circuitry and a longer warranty.

One of the trainer’s highlights is its HD 7″ touchscreen with web browsing capabilities and workout stats collection in the background. Wireless heart tracking, an 18-pound flywheel, an 18-inch stride, and a power incline of up to 10 degrees are among the machine’s main features. A shelf for a tablet computer and a console speaker system are among the additional features for entertainment.

The NordicTrack NTEL71218 Commercial 12.9 Elliptical is a rear-drive vehicle that saves a lot of space! If you don’t want to spend hours putting together a cross trainer, the SE9i’s simple assembly feature will appeal to you. As a result, you’ll be able to get started on your workout sooner and avoid frustration. It has wheels for easy transport and can be folded vertically after each workout.

Since the trainer is iFit-ready, you can use it right away if you have an iFit subscription. You can miss it if you don’t need it or don’t have a subscription and just use one of the 30 fitness programs available.
