NordicTrack Commercial X11i Treadmill Review

By J. Maki


The NordicTrack Commercial X11i Treadmill is a sturdy and robust unit that can handle your intense training regimens and that will challenge you with its unique inclining ability. The X11i has the ability to achieve a 40% incline and comes equipped with sled grips and a push bar to provide you with a one-of-a-kind workout to supplement your conventional walking and/or running. What is great about this feature is that you can enhance the number of calories you burn due to the extreme intensity the steep incline training can provide. If you are looking for a treadmill able to withstand high-mileage training and that can also provide you with the variation of innovative incline and sled training, the X11i is for you. 

If You’d Be So Inclined…

We are getting a bit repetitive here, but the incline feature of the X11i is phenomenal. It is no secret that training at steep incline levels increases the intensity of your workouts, and with the X11i, you’ve got more than enough incline at your disposal to challenge yourself. Throw in the ability to transform this model into a sled using the sled grips and push bar, and you have options in your training to vary your workouts. With the capabilities to train different muscles and energy systems in your body through these unique options, the X11i can help you achieve the most lofty of fitness goals. 

Tech Me Out, Bro

While not a massive display, the X11i does come equipped with a 10” high-definition touchscreen that is compatible with iFit, allowing you to access a wealth of workouts. We have talked about iFit ad nauseam on the site, but for good reason, as it is a high-quality application to enhance your workouts. Not only does iFit adapt to your level of fitness and ramp up to push you to new levels of achievement, it also tracks your workout statistics to allow you to monitor your progress. You get a 1-year subscription with your purchase of the X11i ($470 value), and if you find it valuable, you can choose to keep it, or if not, you can discard. However, I don’t think you will be disappointed. 

What Makes the NordicTrack X11i Unique?

40% incline + sled capabilities, no question!!!

What Is the NordicTrack X11i Missing?

At the price point for the X11i, we’d like to see a bit larger display. No matter though, the 10” screen is still manageable.

What Are Customers Saying About the X11 (taken from

What are customers saying (taken from

  • “The product is great – it is well built and works well. The fan on it is awesome, the tread is comfortable, and it’s fun. I would say I wished they numbered the workouts within the series but besides that, it’s awesome.”
  • “Beautiful and sturdy treadmill that is comfortable and perfect for everyday use. I love the Ifit hikes, runs, and other available workouts on the app. The only thing that I do not love is the placement of the cup holders in relation to the position of the handle bars. The current configuration makes it difficult to grab your water while using the unit. I also wish that the HDMI output was still an option.”
  • “I am a 220lb Soldier and have always wanted a treadmill but, never found one I could afford that wouldn’t break when I run on it until now. Will do a run workout then put my pack on and walk for an hour on an incline while watching a show.”
  • “We bought this treadmill at the beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic to get some sort of cardio in our home since we were unable to go to the gym. The coach guided workouts and all the features of the treadmill has blown us away. We cannot imagine our life without this piece of equipment. The heart rate monitor was a pleasant bonus that helps keep and accurate reading of the calories that we burn.”
