Best workout for great results, minimal time - and release of endorphins is incredible! I've had mine 15 years and still use it - sweat like a dog! I swear the inches fall off my hips afer I'm on it. The fat that's burned keeps my tummy flat, and it has a great effect on my legs and backside! 20-... (Read more)

I inherited my Nordic Track Pro from my grandfather after being unable to find a good, effective low- to no-impact exercise machine. Having a suffered a serious dance injury at 13, I have great trouble with any kind of impact on my ankle. This machine is WONDERFUL. I do an hour a day at resistance l... (Read more)
No Artificial Hip for me
By Andy (Sarasota, FL) on Jul 5, 2010
I have a hip problem that make it impossible to go up and downstairs or carry my bags throught the airport. Runs in the family and many mostly male members have artifical hips. I purchased my first Nordictrack Skier at least 20 years ago. I might just be me, but the no impact no twisting exercise... (Read more)
A real workout
By N/A (Coshocton, Ohio) on Sep 8, 2010
My Uncle John had bragged about his NordicTrack Skier for years. In Feb. 1994 I had recontructive surgery to my right leg and ACL replacement. Prior to that I ran 5 miles a day. I was in great shape but when the physical therapist told me to do 20 min. on the NordicTrack at 5 min. I thought I was go... (Read more)
Find a used one in good condition
By BooGroove (Washington, NJ) on Sep 12, 2010
Bought one about five years ago really cheap at a garage sale. For the price, a great buy. Works the quads a little more than my treadmill and elliptical. Provides a nice change of pace...and I can actually fold it up and bring it with me when we visit my in-laws. Can't do that with the other ma... (Read more)
The best find ever.
By BigRed (Central Oregon) on Nov 30, 2010
I found a classic Nordic Track in the construction debris section of the city dump when I lived in N.E. Nevada. Nothing was wrong with it that a little cleaning and lubing didn't fix. I've used it for a couple years now, and absolutely love it. If you can't find one, buy one, it's worth every pen... (Read more)
Still going after all these years
By YoniKfarSaba (Kfar Saba, Israel) on Dec 11, 2010
I bought one of these in +/- 1990 when I lived in Rockland County NY. Used it regularly and then 1994 moved to Israel where I continued using it for a time until eventually replacing it with other equipment at a gym where I've been since. Just today I took it out of the attic and with no effort be... (Read more)
Best Piece of Equipment I Own
By Livingthedream (Newton, NJ) on Jan 1, 2011
I bought mine in November 1993. This piece of equipment is guaranteed to give you the best work out in the least amount of time. It also does an awesome job of sculpting my body. My butt and thighs have always been an issue but after consistent working with this machine, I could return to wearing a ... (Read more)
You need this Incredible machine!
By NordicNow (Orange County, NY) on Jan 7, 2011
Bought this 12 years ago -- used and it is fantastic! Usually I run, but in the winter I change to Nordic Trac because too much snow and dark to run consistently, and the work out is just as good. The settings are easy to adjust to make it more challenging or to ease up. 40 minutes a few times a we... (Read more)
One of the BEST exercise equipment
By Canada Girl (Kingston, Ontario, Canada) on Jan 20, 2011
I purchased mine 20 years ago and have never regretted the purchase. The belt has been replaced once. We alternate it's use with a treadmill (the variety keeps us interested in exercising!)
After all this time
By Texalina (Dallas, tx) on Jan 24, 2011
My treadmill quit on me and it isn't in the budget to get it repaired so I dug out my 16 yr old skier. With no motorized parts, it is timeless. Haven't used it in years and that was obviously a mistake. Despite walking 4 miles a day, this just uses a different bunch of muscles! I will have to work m... (Read more)
By John Galt (Richmond, Virginia) on Mar 20, 2011
You supply the energy, not the electric company. With my lipid profile, I would have been dead years ago if not for this machine. Well built, sturdy and a full body workout.
Coming Back to NordicTrack
By SaraJean (New Jersey) on Apr 16, 2011
I had one 1988-1999, used it 5-6 days a week and wore it out. I've since had fancy ellipticals and climbers, but I have yet to find the same comprehensive and effective cardio workout (knees can't take running) so I just ordered my second one.
By TWeis (Jackson, TN) on Jul 13, 2011
I agree with all the reviews that rave about the great workout and the durability of the equipment. But what sets it apart from other cardio equipment is the portability. It takes me 30 seconds to take apart to transport in my truck and a minute to re-assemble. To fully disassemble to fit the the ... (Read more)
Truly a Classic!
By CPD (Chicago, IL) on Feb 17, 2009
An orthopedic surgeon advised me to buy this skier. He had been using one for years, and he told me "It's the single best piece of aerobic exercise equipment you can have in your home." I followed his advice and was not disappointed. In this age of ellipticals, the NordicTrack skier is often over... (Read more)
By nhansr (Parker, CO) on Feb 20, 2009
I have had my skier for 17 yrs now and have never tired using it year after year. Easy on the joints and muscles. Best exercise for arthritis sufferers and seniors such as myself. Never wears out with good maintenence.
best machine ever
By dentalgirl 68 (Western MA) on Feb 26, 2009
I have been using my Nordic Trak for almost 16 years, no lie! Three time a week, half hour each time. I still find it to be the most effective machine out there... I will rotate between this and my stairmaster. Many parts have had to be replace, thankfully my husband is very handy. I do remember... (Read more)
THE ABSOLUTE BEST - A CLASSIC!
By Merry April (midwest USA) on Mar 15, 2009
I just had the fright of my life -- a friend told me these were no longer being made! I'm SO glad he's wrong! I've been using Nordic Track cross country skiers since the '80s and in my opinion there's STILL nothing that can compare when it comes to a total body, aerobic, non-impact workout. The N...

the best workout since sliced bread
By free-roaming soul (western massachusetts) on Apr 7, 2009
like many others, i've had my nordictrack classic pro for years, and it's still my favorite thing. there used to be a repair/upkeep kit sold, and i wish i could get one now...i need four of those little glide tabs that are embedded in the sides of the skis and keep them gliding...there also used to ...

I just bought my second one!
By none (Colorado) on Apr 10, 2009
I have had ...and used..a nordik track since 1990. I LOVE it. Having just purchased the second one I have to say this unit is not it's predecessor. The fly wheel chatters and the skis are super noisy. And this one was replaced once..the first I was shipped had to go bad due to defects. Not the quali... (Read more)
