NordicTrack X22i Treadmill Review

NordicTrack X22i Treadmill Review

By J. Maki

Overview

The mid-tier model in the NordicTrack Commercial series, the X22i kicks it up a notch in certain areas in comparison to the X11i, and with a 3k price tag, you get a much larger display and a slightly more powerful motor. If these components are of great importance to you, the X22i may be a good choice; however, if they are not, the X11i will more than meet your needs. This is a high-grade treadmill built for high intensity, high-mileage training and will more than exceed the needs and expectations of low to moderate intensity exercisers.

Screen Size Matter

A full 11 inches bigger than the X11i, at 22,” this display brings to life the workouts provided by iFit. No eye straining here, as the video enhances the iFit experience and makes you feel as if you are in the workout. Couple its size with high-definition clarity and touchscreen capability, and you can easily navigate the screen to manipulate the different workouts you are engaging. 

Still Sleddin’

Like the X11i, the X22i includes the sled feature with hand grips and push bar to provide you with variety to your workouts. If you are looking to strengthen your legs and hip power, the sled feature can supplement your running schedule. Additionally, like the X11i, you can incline this model up to 40% to intensify the difficulty of your workout, increasing the amount of calories you can burn in a shorter period of time. 

What Makes the X22i Unique?

The larger screen size truly makes for a fun workout experience and one that feels like you are actually in the iFit workout. 

What Is the X22i Missing?

At this steep price point, the running belt could be a bit larger. While not small at 22” x 60”, for $3000, it’s not unreasonable to expect a bit more.

What are customers saying (taken from Nordictrack.com)

  • “Overall, this is a really good quality equipment, I even think it’s better than the treadmill I used at the gym. My treadmill has a much more cushioned surface which makes it easier on my legs when running.”
  • “The touch screen is not as responsive and the programs seem to load a little slow. However, there are way more pros to make it worth recommending and still get a 5 star rating from me.”
  • “Due to covid-19 I gained a lot of weight. The interactions on the screen has motivated me and I work out almost daily. I have lost all the weight I gained and more! Highly recommend even you don’t like working out. The trainers make it fun!!”
  • “The only reason I gave treadmill a chance was the IFit and incline/decline features. But for me to specifically chose Nordictrack was the connectivity between the two where the incline/decline automatically follows the terrain of the instructor’s location or whatever location you want to program your treadmill, NOW that is a feature you don’t want to let go and combine it with a huge screen, I’m glad i chose Nordictrack X22i… I am proud to say i’ve been consistently on it at least 3x a week since I got it in July.”
