How much space is needed to operate a NordicTrack?
Due to the motion of the wooden skis, NordicTrack ski machines require more front and rear clearance when they are being operated versus when they are not being used. Be sure to clear enough space for your skier for its safe operation and make sure that no pets or small children are nearby when the machine is being used.
Are there instructional videos available?
There are a lot of fun NordicTrack skier videos available on YouTube and other online video sites. Find videos on everything from learning the NordicTrack skiing motion to performing routine maintenance.
What is the weight limit for the NordicTrack Classic Pro?
The current production of NordicTrack Classic Pro ski machines has a weight limit of 250 pounds. No information is published regarding the minimum or maximum height for using the NordicTrack skiers.
Other NordicTrack skier models are made of different materials and have different specifications — cheaper models will hold less weight while the higher-quality models may be more stable.
How quiet are the NordicTrack ski machines?
NordicTrack ski machines do not have a motor, so they are generally quieter than other motorized fitness equipment like treadmills. The whirring flywheel, moving wooden skis, and the spinning arm exerciser do produce some sound when in use, so expect to turn up the music or movies in order to hear them when working out.
How much assembly is required?
New machines will arrive mostly assembled. These quick steps will get it ready for the first use in almost no time:
- Attach the front frame and adjust to the desired front elevation level
- Unfold the unit
- Attach the electronics unit
- Adjust to desired resistance levels and begin to workout
How many resistance settings does the NordicTrack have?
There are a few different ways to adjust the resistance on a NordicTrack Pro.
- Leg resistance is adjusted by sliding a lever up and down a scale with numbered resistance levels (while the numbers do indicate a relative resistance level, it is possible to stop in between the numbers / at any point on the scale)
- Arm resistance is adjusted with a dial to the user’s preference (or the machine can be used without the upper body resistance if desired)
- Front elevation has 6 different levels to choose from
