The NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 Elliptical Trainer Review

The NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 elliptical trainer is one of the hottest selling cross training machines on the market. There are two factors that have make this elliptical so popular…

  • The NordicTrack 990 received a “Best Buy” rating from a leading Consumer Review magazine.
  • The NordicTrack 990 includes a Power Inclin> feature.
  • You may not be aware, but there are elliptical trainers that are equipped with an incline function. It works similar to the incline on a treadmill. And like a treadmill, when you kick up the incline you workout different muscles in your lower body. You also increase the intensity of your cardio exercise – burning more calories in less time.

    What makes the AudioStrider 990 unique is that this function is available on a $1,000 machine. Most ellipticals that include a power incline cost in excess of $3,000.

    More NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 Features…

    iFit Technology – The iFit technology consists of a series of exercise programs designed by professional trainers. They come in cards that are inserted into the machine. The programs control the resistance and the incline of the elliptical. They also include audio coaching to optimize your workout. (iFit cards are an additional cost.)

    Built-in Speakers -You can plug in your MP3 player and listen through speakers that built into the console. Music is proven to be an excellent motivator when exercising.

    20 Installed Exercise Programs – Besides the iFit technology you also get a generous selection personal trainer workouts that add variety to your exercise. In addition, there are 2 heart rate workouts and 2 learned programs.

    18″ Elliptical Stride – The NordicTrack 990 comes with an 18″ stride. This stride length is best suited for people of average height. If you are above 6′ you may want to consider a model with a 20″ stride.

    The NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 elliptical trainer is one of the best bargains at $1,000. However, you must realize that this rates it at the high-end of a budget elliptical. I would recommend the 990 for moderate use. If you need a machine for multiple users, or if you plan daily strenuous workouts, you may want to consider upgrading to a higher end elliptical.

    The AudioStrider comes with a 1-year parts and labor warranty. Being a budget elliptical, I would still recommend you increase the warranty to at least 2-years coverage. The cost is not all that much more.

    However, I can say from the feedback I get from my readers, few people have had problems with the 990 out of the box, and it general it seems to be holding up well under normal use.

    If you are looking for an elliptical trainer that will not break the bank, the NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 is worth considering. The adjustable power incline will give your elliptical workout a whole new dimension.
