The best calorie burner on the market
By Tonymar (Augusta, GA) on Jun 11, 2009
I have had my classic for 17 years. Still performs beautifully. I am now 61 yrs old and do 30 minutes a day. no other equipment comes close to the workout or the results!
Just right for my patients!
By Dr. Daryl (Whittier, Ca.) on Jun 14, 2009
As a Chiropractor and Occupational Therapist, I've used the Nordic Track Excell for years. It's the perfect skier for developing my patient's range of motion, endurance, strength, coordination, and tone. No monitors or fancy gadgets. Just plain ol' fundamentals!!Dr. Daryl Capen
Best Cardio Option Available
By runnlift (Kentucky) on Jun 22, 2009
I am a YMCA fitness director, but do my personal workout at home. No other piece of cardio equipment - and I am exposed to every piece of equipment going and coming - beats my machine. I've had it since the early 1990s. I have recently been restricted from running due to knee and back issues, but... (Read more)
I've been a fan for 20 years
By Deni (Central Oregon) on Aug 22, 2009
I bought my first NordicTrack in 1988 and I've been a fan ever since. They had one model back then. Now I have this model and use it 30 minutes a day, six days a week. It's a great workout, keeps me in shape, and keeps me sane. I' 52 years old and can't imagine life without it!
Best workout ever!
By EK (Louisiana) on Sep 19, 2009
I've had my Skier for 12 years. I run, row, and swim. The Skier, however, is the best exercise equipment I've ever used. Glad to see they still make them!
Skier-the Best and More!
By Gabby (Hanover Township, PA 18706) on Oct 10, 2009
Oh, yes! I have counted calories since 8th grade and when my chronic pain therpaist
asked me my machine of choice, I said,
without hesitation, "My NORDIC TRACK skier!"
He agreed whole heartedly and told me how
much he loved his Nordic Track Skier. He told
me that I had better watch the weight... (Read more)
Reliable, effective workout
By rinca (California) on Oct 23, 2009
I have been using my skier for over 20 years now 5 days a week for a half hour per time... It's a great workout. So far, my skier works the same as the day I bought it. Hopefully that'll be the case for many more years. I high;y recommend this exercise machine to anyone and everyone. I'm 55 years ol... (Read more)

I have been using my NT since 1991. Six to seven days per week (when I am home)for 50 minutes at 3 degrees incline. The ole NT machine provides the ultimate, at home cardio workout.
Want to maximize benefits of use.
By steve (Pittsburgh, PA) on Jan 3, 2010
Does the use of the skier result in building muscles. Is there a video I can see related to proper use and training with the skier?
Great aerobic workout and great for developing balance.
By dj (Stafford, VA) on Jan 1, 2010
I have had my Skier for 15 years!! I love it!! It is great for people that don't have room to keep it out. My folds up and I stored in the coat closet.
This machine will last forever....I have never had any problems with it.
Keeps on Going
By SurferSkier (Santa Cruz, CA) on Jan 14, 2010
We've had our skier, just like the current model, for 17 years now. We replaced the arm pull cord once, but nothing else. Kind of amazing, could last a lifetime. Seems only swimming might give the same total body workout.
My Kids Call It A Time Machine!
By School@Home (MiddleTN) on Jan 22, 2010
My husband purchased this for me in 1989, really! I've continued to use it typically 5 days/week since. The upholstered pad is peeling, I've had to oil squeaks more times than I can remember, and various other repairs but this ol' bird still hangs in there! We've certainly gotten our money's worth.
Best cardio machine ever made.
By puffdragon (Raleigh, NC) on Feb 9, 2010
Amazing piece of equipment a real kick butt workout. I have a small area and could only have one machine and I am so happy I choose this one.
18 years old and still going strong
By Szbertt (Plano TX) on Feb 8, 2010
We bought our Classic ski machine from Nordic track 18 years ago. It has seen a tremendous amount of use, and other than cleaning and some lube it still works great. We're giving it to our son to take back to college, and we'll buy a new one. It is simply the best workout we've ever known.
Easy on my Knees
By 1948yooper (San Antonio) on Feb 13, 2010
I bought a used one for a song about ten years ago and it and I are still going strong. Electronics never worked right, but the smooth action remains. I've done a lot of x-country skiing, but this is much safer and convenient. A great workout that is easy on the joints.
Have used one for YEARS.
By Jayhawkker (Southern California & Central Oregon) on Feb 20, 2010
I loathe swimming. Despise running. Abhor dance videos. But this, I love. I can read or watch tv or even daydream (I'm that good at it). And if a 55+ year old woman can do this, you can too. Because you're probably younger or at least you haven't had my 3 spinal fusions, five knee surgeries, three ... (Read more)
Mine dates from the Reagan administration!
By Mark W (Boston, MA) on Mar 18, 2010
I bought mine when Reagan was president, and it's still going strong! I've had to replace a few components, but they are available and I'm glad to see it's still on the market. I feel that low impact is very important in any aerobic exercise that is done frequently, and there is none better than th... (Read more)

after years i rediscoverd the reason the nordictrac was and still is one of the most efective work outs unlike poorly made fad equipment and poorly made gimicks that are ineffective, hard to set up equipment and even more diffacult to use and usaully end up cluttering the garage or ending up by the...

classic Nordic Track
By OSou (Sarasota FL) on Jul 26, 2010
My husband had one for years it is excelent! I also have it in a good shape and ready to sell very cheap!
Marvelous piece of equipment
By Shep (Coconut Grove, Florida) on Apr 28, 2010
I bought my Achiever in 1990 and have used it continuously since then to maintain cardiac fitness. It provides a full-body workout, is infinitely adjustable, uses no electricity and has required no maintenance. An ideal product!
