NordicTrack Skier

The Beginning

About 25 years ago, NordicTrack skiers began popping up in living rooms all over the country. With the help of a vigorous television marketing campaign, a new fitness craze was born. The appeal was obvious—the skier infused the smooth feel of cross-country skiing with the calorie-burning benefits of a total-body workout.

The secret was in the design. Gliding wood skis provided the perfect amount of resistance, the flywheel cables simulated the feeling of actual skiing and the precision adjustments allowed customization for each user.

As time went on, the NordicTrack line grew to include dozens of skier models for sports enthusiasts at every level. Eventually, they expanded into the area they now know best: smooth, low-impact exercise machines. This led to the release of a new line of ellipticals with the patented NordicTrack touch.


A New Era for NordicTrack


With a second wind in the late 1990s, NordicTrack began to expand into other home fitness equipment, including its touted line of treadmills. The same flair for ultimate design and comfort led the company to sell strength machines, stationary bikes, steppers, apparel and much, much more.
