How it Works

On March 8, 2021, you will have full access to the official NordicTrack Bracket. This bracket follows a similar format to the annual college basketball competition held in March. The NordicTrack Bracket will host 16 teams, each with its own unique qualities and features. These 16 teams will go head-to-head in single-game matchups over a period of two weeks. Once you submit your bracket online through our form, you will be entered into the #NordicTrackBracket Challenge. 

Each matchup will be hosted on NordicTrack’s Facebook and Instagram Stories for a period of 24 hours. Prior to the matchups, you will be provided team stats within our Stories. These stats will be saved for your reference on NordicTrack’s Instagram highlights. On game day, you’ll vote for your team. And voting is simple: The more votes for your team, the higher your chances of winning and moving forward.

Upon the final matchup, if you selected the correct team as the final winner, you will be automatically entered into a raffle, to win the machine and a 12-month family membership to iFit.

To submit your bracket, you will need to complete the following two action items:

  • First, download your copy of the NordicTrack Bracket, here and fill it out accordingly.
  • Second, reference your NordicTrack Bracket, and fill out our digital version here. This allows for our internal teams to track who moves forward and who ultimately becomes our winner.

When is each round winner announced? 

Around the end of the 24-hour Story period, we will announce who won each match and will be moving forward. Stay active on our social media for final scores. 

Do I have to own a NordicTrack machine to participate? 

Absolutely not! This competition is open for participants with or without equipment.

How do I win?

If you’re one of the lucky few who select the winning team, you will be entered into a raffle. One individual of the winner’s pool will be selected as our grand prize winner and will win the Most-Voted machine and a 12-month family membership to iFit.

How do I know which team will perform the best?

Great question! To select the right team, it will take knowledge of the trainer, workout, and machine. 

Before the matchups, we will give you insider information about each team to help you make an informed decision. However, the power ultimately lies in your hands as the matchup winner will be determined by the number of votes given by participants. So, make sure you get your family, friends, coworkers, and the neighbor down the street to get involved and VOTE.

What if I lose a game in the beginning rounds?

If one of your teams in the Swol 16 round loses, don’t sweat it; keep the big picture in mind. You want to position your best teams in the Favorite Four and the Showdown rounds so that ultimately you pick a winner. 

Can I submit more than one bracket?

Unfortunately, no. There will only be one bracket submission available to each participant. These brackets will be monitored, and we strongly discourage individuals from submitting multiple brackets as it could lead to disqualification.

Where can I vote for my teams?

You can vote on any of the following NordicTrack social media platforms: Facebook and Instagram. Each match will be featured on each respective platform within Stories. Please know that voting will end after 24 hours, so pay attention to our social media platforms.

Can I share the competition with others to help get more votes for my team? 

Absolutely! The more votes your team earns, the more likely it is that your team will win the match. So, spread the word and get people involved!
