NordicTrack Fusion CST For The Best HIIT Workouts Of Your Life

Now, you may already have one of our fantastic treadmills. So, we can’t blame you if you feel like your treadmill is all you need.

But as most walkers and runners learn, cross-training is important to keep your body balanced and strong. Which is why NordicTrack is proud to announce the arrival of the Fusion CST.

What Is The Fusion CST

The NordicTrack Fusion CST is a complete home gym packed into one piece of equipment. With 6 precision cable ends and 2 ankle strap accessories, you can work your body from all angles. Also, this machine uses adjustable resistance to build your strength and improve your cardiovascular system.

The Fusion CST has a variety of features that many people may benefit from.


With the SMR™ Silent Magnetic Resistance Flywheel feature, Fusion CST workouts are powered by you, the user. The smooth action of the flywheel will help you to keep control of the equipment while working with its resistance to build strength and stamina.

Resistance Settings

There are 20 resistance settings. This gives you plenty of options when it comes to your Fusion CST workouts, and also allows different users at different levels of strength to use the same machine.

To help you reach your ideal cardio zone, the Fusion CST comes with an iFit® heart rate monitoring chest strap. These straps are much more accurate than any wrist monitors, and some of the workouts depend on you wearing your chest strap. The chest strap is adjustable, so all sizes of users are able to wear it comfortably.

Heart rate monitors used for exercise such as the wireless heart rate monitoring chest strap are not medical devices, and their accuracy may be affected by a number of factors. They are also not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. 


You won’t feel restricted when using the Fusion CST. It’s cables have 95” of independent cable travel, so you can push yourself to the max and then some.

The last thing your home needs is another large piece of machinery. Which makes the Fusion CST so perfect! This sleek machine’s footprint is 41.5″ L x 59.4″ W x 73.7″ H.

With the Fusion CST, NordicTrack has taken strength and cardio training and blended the two together to take your home workouts to the next level.
