Meet the treadmill of the future: The NordicTrack X9i simulates mountains and comes with Jillian Michaels coaching
We don’t usually geek out over technology. But Jillian Michaels calls the X9i from NordicTrack “the best calorie burning machine on the planet,” so we had to learn more.
This tricked out treadmill makes any other treadmill you’ve ever stepped on seem like a 3-speed bike. The X9i’s incline goes all the way up to 40% and it has decline of down to 6% meaning it can simulate hills, even mountains, better than any other treadmill.
And terrain simulation is exactly where things get interesting. The X9i comes with a technology package called iFit. Fully integrated into the console, using iFit you can decide if you want to hike, say, the Pyrenees or the Swiss Alps. Using Google Maps, the terrain will be mimicked both in terms of incline and decline on the treadmill (the speed is up to you), as well as visuals on the 10” monitor. There’s no more realistic way to train for the Athens Marathon or to take armchair travel to the treadmill.
iFit also features workouts led by Jillian Michaels, who will take you through an 8-week weight loss program using the X9i.
Order your NordicTrack X9i today and you’ll get a year free of iFit (normally $99/year); you’ll also receive $80 off the already-on-sale price of $1,899!
