Excellent piece of workout equipment. I have used basically everything, and always come back to Nordic track. Gained a lot of weight in college and took off 45 pounds using the Nordic track skier. Legs and arms toned up tremendously. Blood pressure lowered as well as heart rate. Don't waste money on... (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)

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.
Exercise w/o injury ...
By BGO (Austin/San Antonio, TX) on Feb 21, 2009
I purchased a used model in 1998 and started training for a 10k race. I was overweight and totally out of shape. Within 6 months I was feeling better and gaining confidence. I added a jogging routine and within 4 months I was ready to try to compete. Not against the field, but against mother natu... (Read more)
Great workout machine...
By Mala (Bergenfield, NJ) on Feb 22, 2009
I have wanted one for a long time too. I wish they would do a monthly contest again to win one. I use to own one from 1995 until a couple of years ago. I used it so much, it broke. I wished they would lower the price or just give me one. Great machine... Tara
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)

I have had my Nordic Pro Skierfor 19 years and use it everywinter to keep in condition forbiking and downhill and crosscountry skiing. I am 65 and find it extremely helpful withmy arthritis symptoms as well.Still a hard workout but so gratifying when one is finished.
Best fat burning workout ever
By Stuart (Tulsa, OK) on Mar 6, 2009
I've been using my skier since 1994. No question the overall best fat burning workout for my body - beats running, whatever else I do. Easy on the joints. You could do this beyond your hundreth year. How many senior runners do you see? Not many.
Still going after 22 years of use and abuse.
By Death Wish (Virginia Beach, VA & Athens, TN) on Mar 9, 2009
First used one about 1982 when a group of us bought one for use on a Navy aircraft carrier. We kept it in an unairconditioned void where it was used about 20 hours per day. Lots of sweat poured over that skier and it kept going. I was so impressed that I bought my own in 1987. I use the heck out ... (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...

I bought my skier in 1989, use it hard. Ready to buy a new one, keep the weight off 5'10" 163 lbs.
The best exercise for the money
By Charlie Brown (Greensboro,NC) on Mar 21, 2009
I do not have this model, I have the Sequoia for the past 13 years, use it everyday for thirty minutes and it has worked fine. Only one problem wiht all of them-the skis warp over time and they clunck when using the machine-I bought replacememnts and now everything is good!!Great instead of going to... (Read more)

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 ...

Best machine I've ever used!!
By Steve (Atlanta, GA) on Mar 25, 2009
I've had mine for 15+ years and wish I used it more consistently. Best exercise I've found for burning calories and not stressing the knees!! I've lost 30 lbs using it in the last few months.
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)
good machine but too much maintenance
By Morgaine (New York, NY) on Apr 9, 2009
I bought the nordic ski machine in Aug. 2008. The bottom ski's started shrieking in November. The user's guide and nordic customer service says not to lubricate the roller so I didn't. Fought with customer service to get it fixed. They wouldn't send service man even though I have extended warranty. ... (Read more)
Good service but not the right machine for me
By Timus (Powder Springs, GA) on Apr 9, 2009
I got the skier. It was pretty easy to assemble. I had a hard time using it because one of the rollers was sticking. I called customer service and they sent me another roller with no problem. Installing the new roller was pretty straight forward and took maybe 10 minutes. But I never really cau... (Read more)
Very good machine but needs some improvement
By Mr. G. (Seattle, WA) on Apr 9, 2009
In general the machine is what is expected. Acceptable workmanship all around. I have been using the machine for a long time daily 30 minutes at a good pace. I have previously a similar machine from a competitor that finally I wore out. I consider the cross country style machine the best exercis... (Read more)

I really love my skiier! It offers a great workout and helped me get into shape before downhill skiing this season. I have a history of joint problems (elbows and hips) and the skiier doesn't bother my joints at all, great non-impact exercise!
