NordicTrack C 700 Treadmill Reviews – C Series

NordicTrack C 700 Treadmill is the first treadmill to be introduced in the C series. This is treadmill is recommended for regular walkers and joggers only. The main reason why its not recommended for runners is because the dimensions of the tread belt is too small and runners would need more space as their stride is a lot bigger.

This is one of the best NordicTrack’s low priced treadmill and it offers some fascinating features which will be discussed in detail. Before we start, I highly recommend that you take your time in order to view some key specifications listen in the table below.

Technology Specifications

In this section, we’ll look at all the technology related specifications the C 700 offers such as Display, NordicTrack iFit, Tablet Holder and Sound Systems.


As listen in the table above, NordicTrack provides a Multi-window LED Display with high definition. This LED Display contains all your workout stats like distance covered, calories burned, time and speed. It even shows your heart rate which will be discussed as we move along.

NordicTrack iFit

This feature is very common in all the treadmills manufactured by NordicTrack. iFit provides you with HD street views which can be downloaded from Google Maps. When you purchase the C 700, you get the iFit feature but if you want to continue using it, it’ll cost you $9.99 per month. I recommend that you have this as it helps you achieve your workout goals.

Tablet Holder

If a treadmill doesn’t provide you with a tablet holder, its a shame. NordicTrack has an Integrated Tablet Holder which can hold your tablet. You can now workout and simultaneously watch your favourite TV shows/Movies.

Sound Systems

With the help of Auxiliary Music Port, you can connect you aux wire to your mp3/iPod devices and listen to music. Not only that, you also have built in Two 2” Digitally-amplified Speakers which produce top quality music and again you can use any mp3 device or an iPod.

Engineering Specifications

In this segment, we will be focusing on all the engineering aspects of NordicTrack C 700. Some of these include Motor, Incline, Heart Rate Monitor and Balance Rollers.


For a treadmill that costs $799.00, the motor power if quite powerful. The C 700 provides with a 2.75 CHP Motor that allows you to walk/jog smoothly and swiftly. You’ll feel very comfortable on it as motor is well lubricated inside and the parts move continuously with great consistency.


You can increase the gradient up to 10%. Increasing the gradient is much more effective as you can burn more calories. When you download different areas from Google Maps, the treadmill will automatically sync with that particular place and will increase the gradient or remain flat depending on the place you chose.

Heart Rate Monitor

The Heart Rate Monitor enables you to view your heart rate on the display screen. This is something which isn’t accurate. Some treadmills provide you with wireless chest strap which you can wear in order to get accurate reading but this feature is something which lacks on NordicTrack C 700 Treadmill.

Balanced Rollers

The 1.9” Precision-machined and Balanced Non-flex Rollers supports the treadmill from virbrating which in turn cause jerks. This happens when you increase the speed. However, this is something which you don’t have to worry as the Balance Rollers have been well engineered and tested.


Comfort Specifications

This is really important because if the treadmill ain’t comfortable, you won’t feel like working out and you’ll feel very annoyed by the conditions. Therefore, in this portion, I’ll be focusing on Cushioning, Workout Fan and Tread Belt.


Always remember that you’re training because you want to stay fit. In this process, you must not injure yourself and remain this way so that you can move ahead every day. NordicTrack’s special FlexSelect™ Cushioning provides you with soft landing as you land on your heels/toes.

Workout Fan

The more you increase your speed, the more the AutoBreeze™ Workout Fan will generate the air. As you jog/run, you’ll feel very comfortable and refreshing because there will be air generated by the Workout Fan. This is actually one of my favourite features.

Tread Belt

If you scroll back to the first paragraph of this page, I’ve mentioned that “I recommend this treadmill to regular people who love to walk and jog”. You can even run but it depends on how tall you are. If you’re taller than 5’11 (180.3 cm), you won’t be able to run as the tread belt is 22 inches wide and 55 inches long. If you fall under this category, I’d suggest you leave your question with your height in the comment’s box at the end of this page and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

Convenience Specifications

In this part, I’ll be covering two main interesting attributes which are Workout Apps and Folding Deck. Let’s get on with it!

Workout Apps

This treadmill has 20 On-Board Workouts which will help you in achieving the body you want. You can choose a wide range of training sessions like Speed training, Weight loss training and High Intensity training. You can save 100’s of dollars on personal trainer. I reckon that you don’t even need one as these workouts have been designed by professional iFit trainers.

Folding Deck

This is probably the best feature a treadmill can have. Even if you don’t have space at your home, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about because with the assistance of SpaceSaver® Design with EasyLift™ Assist System, you can fold your treadmill in just a couple of seconds.

The Disadvantages

All the features which have been explained come under pros or advantages. Every treadmill has its own drawbacks!

Customer Service: The customer service is a bit poor because NordicTrack is a very busy company as it sells its machines almost every single day to different parts of the world. Customers have been complaining that they had to wait for a long time in order for their questions to be answered or for the parts to be replaced.

Warranty: The only factor I don’t really like is the Parts Warranty. If you look at other higher priced treadmills, they offer 2- Year Parts Warranty or higher. This is something which must be improved in the future.

Belt: The belt consists of one layer only! If you use it 6-7 days a week for a year or more, it must be replaced as its not manufactured with good quality. If you can replace it after a year, its absolutely fine.


NoridcTrack C 700 Treadmill is one of the three in the C series. If your willing to spend anywhere between $700 – $900, this one might be the right one for you. If you’re looking another one of a similar type or close to this one, I strongly recommend that you read the NordicTrack T 6.5 S Product Review.

Overall, this treadmill is fantastic for walking and jogging but if you fall in the 6 feet category, you won’t be able to run on this. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comment’s box below and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

  1. This is just what I was looking for as far as my treadmill search is concerned. I am not exactly looking into getting into running as I have other forms of cardio that can cover that for me. But I definitely want something where I can go easy on myself if my body isn’t up for running that day.

    Is the 25 year warranty a common warranty for most treadmills? My mom and dads first treadmill broke down and motor stopped functioning after 4 years. 

    Also, can the auto fan feature turn off? I have a personal preference to feel the sweat coming down my face as oppose to feeling dry because of a fan.

    1. Hey Jessie,

      The 25-Year Warranty is quite rare for a treadmill to have but you can get that option with this NordicTrack C 700 Treadmill. If you’re looking for a long term motor warranty, this might be the right treadmill for you.

      And yes, the fan can be turned off. If you’re a person who loves to workout in a cool environment, you can turn it on. This particular treadmill is easy on the body but as you increase the speed, you’ll probably feel the intensity of your workout. 

      Thanks a lot Jessie. I really appreciate your comments on the NordicTrack C 700 Treadmill. Cheers!!!


  2. There are a lot to like about this product and i’m absolutely in love with it. The first feature which makes it perfect for me is the size, it is not so big and bulky.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review, i will look into getting this particular one in the coming weeks. Cheers

    1. Hello Samson! Your absolutely right about the size as it can fit in small apartments/ flats and is definitely the best treadmill for a jogger. If your budget falls within the range of the NordicTrack C 700, I’m pretty sure you’ll be loving it. 

      Let me know if you need anything else or have any other questions. Cheers!


  3. I have always loved the nordic track it was really easy to figure out and use when I first started using it. You are right though it can be improved upon the heart monitor feature especially or the lack there of. It is something they should look into implementing. I have even suggested it to customer service before.I must have been lucky as customer service for me was pretty fast.

    1. Hey there Cathy! Thanks a lot for your positive feedback on NordicTrack C 700 Treadmill. Yes, NordicTrack treadmills are usually easy to operate and get adjusted to. This model is the first one in the C series and I’ll be posting an advanced version of this in the future.

  4. I love your post. I’ve actually tried this machine at the gym. I really love the fan and the comfort of the walk path. I can’t wait to get a couple for my exercise room. The site is appealing looking and I certain it will do well. The fonts and layout are easily read and it holds one’s attention because the paragraphs are evenly spaced and bright.

    1. Hey Rick! As I mentioned in the post that if you can afford this, I’m sure that the NordicTrack C 700 won’t disappoint you in any way. This treadmill is best for regular walkers and joggers. Yes, the website is pretty new and I would love to make it better so that my customers can find it easy to navigate and read stuff easily.

      Thanks a lot Rick!!!


  5. Thanks for great information about Nordic Track Trademill. Technological specification is very important fact for any exercise machine. Many people do not find every specification with the machine manual. The article is very good representation of using this machine with functional scope.

    I think people who needs workout, walking and jogging exercise and they have not enough time to do it in outside will be benefited from this resourceful information.

    1. Hi mzakapon! Before you buy a fitness equipment, an individual must pay very close attention to the technological attributes as well as other specifications. If your buying a machine, you must benefit from it 100%. That’s the reason why I try to educate my customers in a detailed manner so that they can get an idea on what a particular machine offers.

      Thanks a lot and I appreciate for commenting on the post. Cheers!!!


  6. Well i must say that treadmills have really improved since the last time I purchased one. They now have a lot of features that are commendable and ideal for a good work out.

    The NordicTrack C 700 looks like a great machine and the price is just right. It suits me well as am not a runner but a walker. My only worry is on the availability of spare parts, is there a specific company that stocks them, or how do you replace the belt.

    1. Hello Anita! How are you doing? As the years pass, you always get new advancements in fitness equipment’s as well. NordicTrack will be able to take care of both the square parts and the belt for you. They also have a live chat feature on their website which you can use to ask them if you have any issues.

      Thanks a lot for your positive feedback Anita. Cheers!

      Yours Sincerely
