NordicTrack 2450 Treadmill Review: Powerful Performance

The NordicTrack 2450 commercial is a home treadmill built for runners or walkers logging many miles daily. It is also a good treadmill for multiple walkers or runners in a household sharing the treadmill but doing less mileage per day.

The 2450’s standout features are its powerful motor, cushioning deck, and giant touchscreen. The NordicTrack 2450 treadmill is a premium running machine with great specs and features.

What makes a treadmill a running treadmill is a powerful motor, a spacious running deck, and adequate performance capability. The NordicTrack 2450 commercial treadmill nails these categories. It has a 3.6 continuous Horsepower motor. Motors of this strength can support daily long-distance running by a single user or less intense running by a family. The running surface is 20 inches by 60 inches, giving most runners more than enough space to run as fast as the NordicTrack 2450 treadmill allows.

The NordicTrack treadmill 2450 has a speed range of 0 to 12 miles per hour. The incline ranges from negative three percent to 12 percent, so you can train uphill and downhill; these performance specs make the NordicTrack 2450 treadmill great for runners training pretty much any distance.

The running deck is also cushioned with a little bounce. It will feel pretty different from running outdoors, but it’s a great tool for increasing your mileage, getting used to faster paces, or recovering from hard workouts or injuries. Look at the large screen displaying iFIT’s content if you need more motivation. The NordicTrack 2450 treadmill is built on a folding frame with two uprights and a floating console.

Key Features


22 inches is pretty much the maximum you want in a cardio machine. If you’re interested in iFIT’s content, this screen is the best way to view it. The quality of the graphics is nice, and you can immerse yourself in the virtual training. The screen rotates and tilts to get the right angle on or off the treadmill. iFit provides off-treadmill training, too, so that off-treadmill viewing ability is important unless you plan to use your phone or TV instead.

The motor of the NordicTrack Commercial 2450 is 3.6 CHP. It is also reasonably responsive, steady, and quiet. When running this treadmill at 3, 6, 9, and 12 mph, the noise production varies from 56.5 dB to 70 dB. This corresponds to a noise level comparable to a typical clothes dryer operating at lower speeds and a clothes washer operating at higher rates. Therefore, the NordicTrack 2450 shouldn’t be overly noisy or disturbing in your house if you do a lot of washing like me.

Supported features 

Other features like Bluetooth audio support the viewing experience. Whether you want to listen to the fit trainers, use the feed FM radio, or listen to your music, the speakers are powerful and clear. If you prefer a more discreet way of listening, you can use the Bluetooth connection to pair your headphones.

Heart rate monitor 

Bluetooth also connects a compatible heart rate monitor to the NordicTrack 2450 treadmill. The treadmill doesn’t work well with all heart rate monitors. So, if you want to train in heart rate zones, you may need to purchase one from NordicTrack along with the treadmill. 


NordicTrack does a great job of providing all the buttons you could need on the NordicTrack 2450 treadmill without crowding the console. You have a full range of speed and incline buttons along the sides of the screen, which will adjust the treadmill with one press. The buttons are large enough to keep you from missing them. While you’re running, there are on-screen controls if you find these easier to use.

There are also buttons for controlling the volume, which sets the master volume. Meanwhile, the trainer and music volume can be individually controlled on the screen. Then, there are two buttons for increasing and decreasing the fan speed.

Speaking of the fan, it effectively provides a cool breeze and has smart automatic adjustments to speed up or slow down as you do.

Additional storage 

You get two cup holders to store a water bottle or other hydration and nutrition. Unfortunately, the 2450 does not have a tablet rack, so you might lose one of those cup holders to your phone if you need it nearby.


The NordicTrack 2450 treadmill has a great running surface of 20 inches by 60 inches, but it also works well for walking. Both types of users can get used to the soft running deck and vivid display. Incline adjusts automatically to match the real-world grade. When not in use, the 2450’s folding deck helps to free up a lot of floor space. You lift the rear end of the deck, and it locks into place so you can fold it. The deck unfolds and then automatically lowers itself to the floor gradually. When the 2450 is folded, moving it is also rather simple.

IFIT app 

The performance of 2450 hinges on having an active iFIT membership. You get your first 30 days free with the treadmill, and afterward, you will need to pay monthly or yearly to maintain all the smart features on the 2450. It’s usable without a subscription, but you lose many features that justify the 2450s premium price. iFIT provides video content guided by trainers. The content transports you to beautiful locations around the world.

The subscription service improves the 2450s performance because, without the touchscreen, it isn’t necessary, at least not at its size. You can’t view non-iFIT content on it, just your metrics like speed, incline, and total time.


  • You can be sure you get the most out of iFIT’s globally distributed subscription content with the 22″ HD touchscreen. NordicTrack has enhanced the 2450’s WiFi connection to lower latency and boost visuals.
  • This treadmill’s plush padding provides a pleasant underfoot sensation. This is a good recovery run option for road runners.
  • You may follow hundreds of courses on iFIT from your treadmill or use the screen to choose between HIIT, yoga, and strength training. There are over 70 alternative program possibilities in the absence of iFIT.
  • The new 2450 is about fifty pounds lighter than the model it replaced, which makes folding and unfolding the treadmill and moving it easier.
  • With the help of ActivePulse and a compatible heart rate monitor, you can use Bluetooth to pair your headphones with iFIT’s trainer-led content and perform heart rate zone training.


  • The only material is available on iFIT, so exercisers wishing to stream their favorite films or shows will be let down by the enormous screen, lack of a device rack, and incompatibility of the platform.
  • Even while the screen wobbling is less than with the less expensive 1250, it still happens occasionally.
  • The maximum incline has been lowered by 15% of the prior version to 12%.

User experience 

Here are a few Nordictrack 2450 reviews on Amazon by owners 

Andy S from the United States states: If you buy this, have someone assemble and install it as it is heavy. Overall, I have had this device for over 3 years now. Seems sturdy. However, I opted against subscribing to their iFit exercise programs as they are too expensive and not worth the price.

Also, I want to walk and jog on the treadmill and do not need videos on how to do this. The problem is that you won’t be able to step on the treadmill, push a speed/incline, and jog like other brands. You have to go through several button pushes to say no to their sales pitches encouraging you to enroll/re-enroll with their iFit workout program. Also, I would advise against getting their extended warranty. Service is poor (I need to call them several times and have a long wait time). It’s not worth the money and the headache.

Justin Smith from the United States stated: Great treadmill; the quality of NordicTrack continues to impress me. I have used this treadmill daily for the last year and a half. It is smooth and has great features, including Bluetooth and built-in fans. I’m not too fond of the iFit stuff. I think it’s gimmicky and overpriced. You DO NOT have to use iFit to use the treadmill. You can manually start and use it that way (as I have for the past 1.5 years).

I recommend not updating the treadmill because the updates can lock you out of accessing the Android OS that the screen uses. If you look on Reddit, you can minimize the treadmill software and watch Netflix, Hulu, or other stuff on the screen while you walk (It will continue to track and work for you while it runs in the background)

Nordictrack 2450 Alternatives

Consider Nordictrack 1750 vs 2450. 1750 is $500 less expensive than 2450. It has a 3.5 HP motor compared to a 3.6 HP motor in 2450 and a 14″ LCD compared to 22″ in 2450.

Compared to other 3.5 HP motor treadmills, Nordictrack 2450 is quite expensive, though it has a 22″ screen that others don’t have. Nordictrack has a shorter warranty of 10 years on the frame and motor and 2 years on parts.

Price-wise, the most popular models of other companies with a 4HP motor are available close to this price. These include Sole F85, Horizon 7.8AT, Spirit XT485 etc. These also have a higher maximum user weight.


Whether you are the only runner in your household or part of a family of walkers and runners, the 2450 is a good choice. The powerful motor can support one runner’s extensive training or moderate to low use by multiple people. That 22-inch touchscreen is your window into trails from around the globe. iFIT unlocks worldwide training content from professional trainers. The cushion deck encourages you to go farther and faster or take that much-needed rest day. 2450 is the pinnacle of the NordicTrack commercial series, with features designed for the runner and centered on a smart, hands-free training experience from iFIT.
