Awesome You will not regret this purchase
By DaddyzGirl (Prairie Grove,AR) on Jul 3, 2010
If you have joint problems or back problems, this is the exercise machine for you. I have had a broken right leg, a broken left foot & ankle, and a slipped disc in my upper back...and this workout is gentle on my joints but intense enough to give me the workout my body needs. My stamina is building ... (Read more)
so easy to assemble
By ClemR (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) on Jul 6, 2010
packaging was robust and parts were well surrounded with cardboard and foam.
Easy to install, instructions are so easy to follow! No parts missing either. Delivery was on time, and no problem.
My wife and I love our new ACT.
Thank you NordicTrack
great customer service
By fst (colorado) on Jul 20, 2010
I get a good workout in a small(ish) space as advertised. Had a large electronic problem, and even tho my warrantee was a couple of days over expiration, am VERY satisfied with polite, prompt, complete customer service in solving the problem for the price of shipping. I'd give them my business aga... (Read more)
Great Elliptical Horrible Assemble
By Michelle (Greenwood, IN) on Jul 23, 2010
Now that I have my elliptical together, it's great. Easy to use and so quiet I can use it in the same room as the rest of my family while they watch TV.
Now for the assembly.
First of all, make sure you have a strong man there to help you move the base from the wooden pallet it is delivered on.... (Read more)
Very Nice and Powerful Machine
By NataliaL (Anaheim, CA) on Oct 28, 2010
The elliptical only takes a small corner of our house. I've lost 10 lbs so far! I'd recommend this product to everyone who is looking to buy in the $1000 range.
By Abad98eb (Pacifica, CA) on Sep 30, 2010
I'm fairly new to to elliptical exercising. I have tried the ones at my local gym & now I own this machine. There is a definite difference in how the two machines feel. At the gym I was able to complete 30 mins on the "weight loss" track. On this A.C.T. machine I'm struggling to stay on for 10 m... (Read more)

I've Lost Weight and Feel Much Better!
By RonW (Roanoke, VA) on Oct 29, 2010
I wanted a good quality elliptical with pre-programmed workouts, ipod connection, and that didn't require a large foot print. This elliptical meets all those expectations. My only concern with the product is that the heart rate monitor is inconsistent and inaccurate.
When I first started using th... (Read more)
Not bad for the price...
By Craig (Virginia) on Nov 17, 2010
I have had my NordicTrack A.C.T. elliptical for 5 months now so feel comfortable in giving a fair review.
I paid extra to have the machine assembled. The people who delivered and assembled the machine were nice enough but had never done the job before clearly. To top that off they were overbooked... (Read more)
Low Impact for our bodies!
By ChrisRay (Tucson, AZ) on Nov 27, 2010
Our experience with the NordicTrack phone order staff was exceptional! We received our ACT Elliptical and put it together in no time. The directions stated that I needed a rubber hammer, but it was not necessary. The parts were well protected and removed with just a little muscle. Once we got it... (Read more)
These People back up their product
By Chris (Las Cruces, NM) on Dec 30, 2010
Had my NoricTrack ACT for little over a year. Made a clunking noise. Left rear bearing froze and slight crack in frame below axle mount.
Called NordicTrack. People couldn't have been nicer. Had choice to have my money refunded, apply what I paid for it to another exercise machine in stock or a re... (Read more)
Had 2 years now Good and Bad
By Flame (Lawton, OK) on Jan 4, 2011
This machine works you hard. It is super smooth but wasn't always. We had the Clicking noise that others mentioned. My husband traced it down and fixed it. The fan is too tall so he put a clear piece of plastic on it to get the fan to blow lower so it will hit my face. The heart rate monitor is... (Read more)
High Quality Elliptical
By JPL007 (Salt Lake City, UT) on Jan 5, 2011
This one has all the flexibility of multiple resistant levels and workouts all in a compact yet high quality package. We put this machine together in about 3 hours and have enjoyed the high quality workouts. I would highly recommend this one for a full feature, small footprint elliptical machine.
Like it Better Than a Treadmill
By William E (Kingston, TN) on Jan 27, 2011
We like the narrow footprint between the foot pads. More natural walking gate. The wife loves it. She wore out a treadmill and likes this unit more than the treadmill.
By Guy (Buffalo, NY) on Jan 29, 2009
The 22 inch stride is great for my because I'm taller than average so the stride feels comfortable. I don't really care about working the different muscle groups, I just wanted a machine that had a comfortable stride. My wife likes that the stride can adjust down to 18 inches so it's perfect for her... (Read more)
By Mary (Houston, TX) on Feb 13, 2009
I wanted an eliptical that didn't take up a lot of space, so I did a lot of research online about the best "dual" flywheel ellipticals. Most articles warned that the models were too new to rate durability. They werent kidding! I have had Nortic Track A.C.T. for 2 months and am returning it. On t... (Read more)
By uofm_jock (Minneapolis, MN) on Feb 18, 2009
I received my A.C.T about a week ago. What a great machine! smooth, quality construction. I was amazed at how quiet is was. I'm so glad that I purchased this machine. The sale price is unreal. If your on the fence, hop down and buy this machine.
Wow. Lots and lots of parts
By PulaskiSnowBound (Pulaski, NY) on Feb 27, 2009
Can't really rate this yet until I put it together. But I can't release this unless I do. Just fair warning, if u buy this from their site it comes in a box with a million pieces. More to come, this weekend we attempt to put it together.
More Than Pleased
By Onnfire (Sault Ste. Marie, On. Canada) on Mar 12, 2009
First ordered from Nordic track Canada at $899.00 USD then noticed a 5% discount 2 days later and they honored it no questions asked. Arrived at our front door 6 days after ordering, took 2 hours putting it together, found the instructions well done etc. Love the way it so smooth. SO far very happy ... (Read more)
Exactly what I was looking for
By Eric (Killeen, TX) on Apr 7, 2009
This product is compact, stable, and sturdy. It works the legs and tones the arms, and plays my MP3 player and iPhone music while I work.The only faults I found include: the AC adapter plug on the left, front base is slightly out of alignment so it's slightly difficult to plug in and remove. The ... (Read more)
