NordicTrack T 7.5 S Review

Editor's Rating: 8.1 /10
This treadmill has been discontinued.

The NordicTrack T 7.5 S treadmill is a great option for those looking to engage in light to moderate workout sessions. Given its approachable sticker price it’s also a great way for novice runners to get their hands on a treadmill that’s packed with features without breaking the bank.

This treadmill model is equipped with NordicTrack’s FlexSelect cushioning system, which is a nice bonus. The clever system gives you the option of either softening the running mat to reduce impact on your joints, or making it more firm in order to get more of a “real world” road running experience.

Like most NordicTrack treadmills, the T 7.5 S is designed to work with iFit live interactive training. A year’s subscription to the service is included, and should you choose not to renew after the first year, the treadmill still has 50 pre-programmed workouts built in.

As with all T Series treadmills, the T 7.5 S folds up to save space when not being used.

What We Like:

  • 12 degree incline capability for more strenuous walking/running
  • 3.0 continuous-duty horsepower (CHP) motor
  • Built in fans
  • 50 built-in training programs
  • Easy folding design
  • grip-mounted heart rate sensors
  • Bluetooth audio integration
  • 1-year iFit membership included
  • The FlexSelect cushioning system
  • Lifetime motor warranty

Running Area:20” x 60”
Top Speed:12 MPH
Weight Capacity:300 LBS

What We Don’t Like:

  • Ongoing cost of iFit after 1st year of ownership

Our Verdict:

Overall, this is a great entry-level machine for those who are looking to stay at home, get fit, and not have to bring in outside personal training help. The fact that it coms with iFit adds a $468 value, which is almost half the price of the treadmill, though this has become pretty standard with a number of brands lately. Not everyone will be keen on carrying a monthly fee after the first year, but its 50 built-in programs will still give users plenty of options to choose from. For those who would otherwise be purchasing personal training sessions at $50-100 per session, an iFit membership still makes sense.

One of the things we love about NordicTrack is how frequently they include premium features all the way down their model range. Though the T 7.5 S is a more entry-priced unit, you still get things like its adjustable FlexSelect deck, Bluetooth-capable speakers, cooling fans, and other goodies to as comfortable as possible while powering through your workout.

This treadmill’s warranty is pretty reasonable when you look at what its competitors are offering. Having a lifetime warranty on both its frame and motor is definitely a plus, and though its labor warranty is only a year, the three-year term on its parts is at least up to industry standard. If a longer warranty is a consideration and you don’t mind spending an extra few hundred bucks, we’d recommend stepping up to the NordicTrack T 8.5 S. Not only does the uprated model bump up warranty terms to five years on parts and two years on labor, but it also has a higher spec motor and 10-inch touchscreen display.
