NordicTrack Elite 1300 Elliptical Review

NordicTrack became famous for the skiing machines they built a few years ago that became extremely popular. They soon branched out into all fitness equipment. Over the years they developed the latest technologies and design and incorporated this into their equipment. What you’ve got today is advanced equipment with advanced features that’s designed to get you the best workouts in the least amount of time. The NordicTrack elite 1300 elliptical is a good example of this.

The resistance is silent magnetic resistance so there is a smooth transition as you change the resistance. You just feel it gradually get easier or harder depending on your choice. There are no sudden movements or noises the whole action is built to be smooth and quiet. The lower levels are good for beginners or if you want a warm up. The higher levels are challenging and are a good uphill climb then you’ve got everything inbetween.

The elliptical comes with 15 one touch workouts. One touch means they’re all selectable directly from the console, you don’t have to scroll through them all to find the one you want. The 15 workout programs means you’ve got a big variety of workouts available to you. They are divided into weight loss, performance and more. These are designed to maximize your results depending on the type of workout you’ve chosen.

This NordicTrack Elite 1300 elliptical comes with oversized pedals. There’s nothing worse than working out on small pedals and trying to get your feet to fit and stay there. If your feet come out you want to be able to easily put them back in place and keep working out. Well you can do that with this elliptical. The pedals run on rails which is probably why it can take 350 lbs users because that makes the elliptical very strong and reliable.

Another great feature is the heart rate grips. You can see at any point how you’re body is performing and coping with the heart rate monitor. It’s built into the handlebars. Just grip on the shiny silver pads to get a heart rate reading. Combine all these features with an in home 1 year labor warranty that comes with it and you’ve got a great elliptical. We’re sure you’ll be happy with the NordicTrack Elite 1300 elliptical as it’s well built and will give a great workout.
