I love this elliptical. It combines the adjustable resistance with variable incline. I got mine in January of '09 and it is now November '09 and it is going strong. We use it daily and it is still quiet, and performing perfectly. I highly recommend it.
Very Smooth Workout
By Mitch (Texas) on Nov 13, 2009
The 990 Pro is so SMOOTH! I tried a few NordicTrack ellipticals at the store and you can definately tell this is top notch. It just feels more commercial with it's motion. I can't report yet on ifit live but the workouts on the machines are very good. The incline and resistance work me hard when I ... (Read more)
By Nate (Maryland) on Nov 13, 2009
When I was shopping I talked called NordicTrack and the rep told me one of the biggest changes on this machine is a new flywheel mechanism that is heavier so it feels like a gym elliptical. The guy said it's also more durable and quieter. So far virtualy no noise and I can vouch for the gym feel. No... (Read more)
Issues right out of the box.
By gwapo-gorilla (Maquoketa, Iowa) on Nov 25, 2009
I just bought my 990Pro on 11/22/09, and it has issues already...right out of the box. The heart rate sencors in the handles are bad. When holding them, the display gives me a heart rate of 188, even when I am well rested! So, about 1/3rd of the programs on the machine can't be used. I expect more t... (Read more)
Exactly what was wanted!
By Rich (Eldridge, IA) on Dec 15, 2009
Product arrived in great shape, did not take too long to put together (2 hours or so). plenty of options on workouts to choose from, looking into getting Ifit products. The only issue I have had is the Grafixx Display. It had to be reordered as it has operational issues.
Couldn't ask for more
By Lisa (Georgia) on Dec 31, 2009
I used to have a gym membership and just used ellipticals so I decided to buy my own machine and save some time. the 990 Pro may not be quite as heavy duty as the $4000.00 ellipticals the gym had but it's very well made. It has a very fluid motion and it's nearly silent while I use it even when I'm ... (Read more)
This is a GREAT elliptical! Buy it!
By MichelleH45 (Durham, NC) on Jan 9, 2010
This elliptical is very, very solid and when you're on it, it feels like an elliptical that costs MUCH more. It has a lot of features that are usually only available on models that cost a LOT more, like LOTS of different pre-programmed workouts, iFit Live, speakers to play your iPod through, and a ...

love my audiostrider 990
By Stan (Goldsboro NC) on Jan 15, 2010
I love this machine, the ride is the smoothest Iv'e felt on any machine in this price range and I test many before buying. Assembly took about a hour quite simple actually. The Jillian Michael workouts are great and challenging although her constant talking is bit much at times. I wish it had a mut... (Read more)
It's awesome, I love ifit live
By Cathy (Cuepertino, Ca) on Feb 16, 2010
This product is awesome. We bought it from Sears and had it installed and delivered yesterday. I bought the ifit module and was able to set it up in about half an hour. It was able to access internet and then we had to connect it to the machine and let the firmware update happen. That took 2 hours. ... (Read more)
Love my Autostrider!
By Violet (San Francisco, CA) on Mar 6, 2010
I received and assembled my new Autostrider two weeks ago. It was easy to put together and didn't really need a second person to help for longer than 5 minutes. It is very silent with the occasional light thumping. It doesn't always make it, and I haven't figured out what causes it. The built-in wor... (Read more)
Upgraded my Second Gen Nordic Eliptical
By E! (Exeter, NH) on Mar 11, 2010
I've owned a second generation Nordic Eliptical for 10 years. It was by far basic. Computer, input age/weight etc, with the heartbeat ear clip. For 10 years I enjoyed this piece of equipment until I started hearing a squealing noise. Unfortunately Nordic told me the bearings were failing and it ... (Read more)
Great as long as you don't have to order parts.
By Jake20 (FL) on Mar 22, 2010
Its been about a month since I ordered my 990 pro.. So far its been very good. I do get a knock coming from the back somewhere every so often, but its not consistent, and for the most part its pretty silent.
One of the big round discs on the back flywheel seems to be a little warped and doesn't s... (Read more)
Nice elliptical, but could be better.
By Dana (Cleveland) on Mar 30, 2010
I used the Audiostrider 990 Pro for 60 days for no less than 30 minutes daily. It's a solid elliptical that gets the job done. By changing my eating habits and exercising daily I have gone from 193 lbs to 165 lbs in the last 90 days. I am happy with the results of using my 990 Pro. With that said I ... (Read more)
Room for Improvement
By Sarah (Columbus, IN) on Apr 16, 2010
I purchased this in January and have logged over 1700 min.
The over all mechanics of this machine are very nice. It's smooth, easy to use, and the power incline ramp is awesome. The only complaints I have are the heart rate grips are pointless and don't work and the computer system is horrible. F... (Read more)
The 990 helped me get my body back
By Adam M. (Waldorf, MD) on May 12, 2010
I purchased a 990 in January 2009, but my life got busy and I neglected to take charge of my exercise regimen until January 2010. On New Year's Day I stepped on the scale and weighed 234 lbs. I am 5'11" and I got out of the Army in 2003. Since 2003 I buried myself in work and finished both a bach... (Read more)
Quiet machine, exactly what I needed
By clichekiller (Mesa, AZ) on Jun 14, 2010
The most difficult part was the assembly, and that took myself and one other person about two and half hours. It helps if you don't drop screws down dark holes. After that the machine performs as expected. I didn't realize how big it actually was until I got it built, I couldn't put it where I wa... (Read more)
Great Family Product!
By DConway (Wickliffe, OH) on Oct 12, 2010
This product has been a great benefit to me, my wife and my three teenage sons. The boys don t complain about the boring treadmill anymore.
Great Machine, Nice Smooth Action
By ChristopherG (Boston, MA) on Oct 28, 2010
I love my 990 Pro. It's a great machine with a nice, smooth action. Keep up the great work NordicTrack!
Researched Many Machines - This Won Out!
By AlbertI (Enfield, CT) on Oct 28, 2010
I researched many elliptical machines, the 990 Pro came out on top! The product was easy to assemble. The 990 is well made, very sturdy. I definitely recommend!
Very Nice Elliptical
By Tarheel Blue (North Carolina) on Sep 27, 2010
I have had this elliptical for almost three weeks, and have been very happy with it. The installation was easy. You simply have to follow the instructions. The hardware were very nicely packaged, and step-by-step instructions were very clear. I have tried some of the built-in excercises, which gives... (Read more)
