The NordicTrack Pro Skier is a great machine right out of the box, but a few customizations can dramatically enhance the workout experience. Consider these accessories to make your NordicTrack cross-country skiing workout more enjoyable.
NordicTrack Ski Machine Upgrades
These quick and easy additions to your routine make every workout more pleasant!
Clip-On Phone or Tablet Holder
Enjoy endless motivational and entertainment opportunities by mounting your personal tablet (or phone) directly to your NordicTrack. Choose a pumping playlist for your workout or enjoy a virtual cross-country ski session by watching a video online.
Clip-On Portable Fan
Keep a nice breeze in the perfect spot with a battery-operated clip-on fan.
When a clip-on fan isn’t going to add enough of a breeze, add one of these highly-rated whole room/tower fans for extra comfort anytime.
Clip-On Water Bottle Holder
Keep a bottle of water handy with a clip-on bottle holder. The clip’s angle can be adjusted to work with many different styles of gear and exercise equipment.
Portable Wireless Speaker
This highly-rated and well-loved (over 27,000 reviews!) speaker from Bose has a strap that will secure it to your machine and also includes a built-in microphone so that you can use it to take calls! Available in multiple colors.
NordicTrack Handle Grips
Since you have direct contact with the grips while working out, consider upgrading the hand grips from the standard version that came with the machine. My personal favorites are the “cross country” version — the attached straps allow for a looser grip during workouts!
Custom NordicTrack Hip Pad
When you really need the extra motivation, and a sporty look is just your thing, order a custom NordicTrack ski machine hip pad for your favorite piece of workout equipment.
NordicTrack Acrylic Drink & Tablet Holder
This custom-fitted acrylic drink and tablet holder takes advantage of the machine’s design to keep reading material, remote controls, and bottled water right where it’s needed. These custom-fitted holders can be found online at NordicParts.com and eBay.
Fitness Accessories For NordicTrack Workouts
These fitness accessories perfectly complement NordicTrack workouts to make sure that the energy invested is worth the effort. These are also great fitness accessories that can be used for lots of other great workouts as well!
Microfiber Sport Towels
Win the battle against sweat and moisture with a lightweight yet absorbent microfiber sport towel.
For the grueling workouts where you need extra help to stay cool, try a highly-rated cooling towel for an instant welcome chill.
Heart Rate Monitors
The other essential addition to your workout should include a heart rate monitor. Many forms of heart monitors are available, but for an accurate, continuous reading, consider a model with a chest strap. The models have come a long way since we first carried them in stores and now can include Bluetooth, GPS, app connectivity, and more! Available from Polar and Amazon.
NordicTrack Ski Machine Exercise Mat
Although most people will not find it necessary to protect their flooring from the machine, this may be a nice addition if you have thick carpeting or want to protect your floors from sweat during a heavy workout.
Virtual Walks on Video
These videos of scenic walks or bicycling can mentally transport you to various exotic locations like the forest, lavender fields, France, Greece, and more. Enjoy this great addition to your workouts!
Make sure to wear good quality shoes during workouts to avoid discomfort or injuries. Athletic shoes are generally good for 300 – 500 miles (depending on body weight, workout style, and workout surfaces).
I have personally found running shoes to provide nice flexibility in the toe area, perfect for the motion on the NordicTrack Pro Skier. I have found that cross-trainers (or anything with a stiff toe area) are not ideal for the lower-body skiing motion. YMMV.
