Hello, my name is Alyce, and I’m excited to share my experience with the iconic NordicTrack Pro Skier! This unique piece of fitness equipment both gave me my first job and my most enduring form of exercise. From selling ski machines in a mall kiosk in high school, to non-impact exercise while watching television as an adult (25 years later!), the NordicTrack Pro Skier has been a staple in my home for decades.

It’s hard to believe, but the NordicTrack ski machine was already 17 years old when I got my first job: selling NordicTrack ski machines and fitness equipment at a kiosk in the local mall in 1992. The kiosk had four machines on display, and we would give demos and teach people to use the machines – right in the middle of the mall! The machines were fun to use, easy on the joints, and made of high-quality materials, so they practically sold themselves.

I loved the machines so much that I took advantage of my employee discount to purchase a new NordicTrack Pro Skier. Even 25 years later, the very same machine is still used in my home!! The non-motorized design allows for quiet operation, while the sturdy construction has provided years of usage.

I hope you enjoy learning more about this exciting piece of aerobic exercise equipment. Please share your experiences and other musings in the comments below!
