Comments: 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 nature and father time. At age 53 I was able to finish the race in 59 min/29 sec ... thank you NordicTrack! Since then my age and several accidents have kept me from any regular exercise plan, until now. Unfortunately, I broke the cardio/calorie electronic display ... that's really the key to success on this or any other machine. I can't seem to find a repair or replacement source. Sure wish someone could help?
A classic in the home fitness world, the Classic Pro Skier is still a fan favorite for its effectiveness. Smooth, natural motion of Nordic skiing offers exercise without injury or discomfort, while adjustable resistance and elevation let you easily adjust the intensity of your workout. Independent resistance controls for the arms and legs give you training variety. The LED feedback window tracks time, distance calories burned and pulse.
