NordicTrack X32i Treadmill Review
By J. Maki
If you have read our treadmill reviews for the X11i and X22i, you are going to recognize many the many similarities they share with the X32i. And if you have been paying attention, you can draw a conclusion as to what the “32” represents: YES! a behemoth 32” high-definition, touch screen display. This is the largest screen on a NordicTrack treadmill, and its gargantuan size makes it stand out in the treadmill industry. iFit capable, your experience of the available virtual workouts and personal training are tremendously enhanced by the massive display.
While technology and interactive workouts are only part of the equation in determining the quality of a treadmill, if personalized workout applications like iFit are important to you, then this model is a great choice. Additionally, the X32i is sturdy and mighty, constructed with reinforced steel and powered by the strongest motor of the NordicTrack commercial treadmills.
Did We Mention the Display?
I won’t spend any more time speaking to the size of the display, as it is evident this is a highlight of this machine, and I have captured its benefits in the overview. What cannot be overlooked is the foundation of this unit and the bells and whistles that are carried over from the X11i and the X22i which make this model quality from top to bottom.
You Need Some Space?
The size of the running belt is a great feature of the X32i at 22” wide and 65” long. If you are a long strider, have larger feet, or are just looking for more room and a feeling of freedom during your walks and runs, the X32i’s belt is ideal. As spacious as it is, you will get the feel of running outdoors from the comfort of your own home. Especially if you are training for a longer distance race and are completing higher mileage runs frequently, as you fatigue and potentially lose some of your precision and control with your foot strikes, the large running belt will give you the confidence that you will land on the treadmill and not take a fall.
It is also worth noting the powerful motor of the X32i which like the display, is the largest/strongest of the NordicTrack commercial series. A continuous duty motor with 4.25 horsepower, it has the ability to handle the heaviest of workloads.
Just. Darn. Good.
The bottom line is that the X32i can handle your workload, no matter how intense or challenging it may be. It is structurally sound and hardy and will outlast your output. If you train intensely at higher mileages, the X32i is built for you, and if you are looking for a unit that provides a fun and engaging interactive iFit workout experience through a television-like display, you’ve found your match. If you have the cash and want a high-quality treadmill across the board, the X32i is a no-brainer.
What Makes the X32i Unique?
Massive display, powerful motor, and large running belt—you pick!
What Is the X32i Missing?
Affordability. This is an expensive machine at $4000, and probably one that is going to be overlooked by those just beginning their exercise journey. However, even if you are just starting out but want to commit yourself to a workout routine, you will be hard-pressed to find a better treadmill.

What are customers saying about the X32i? (taken from Nordictrack.com)
“I have received this Machine 2 Months ago and I actually look forward to working out, especially with Covid and the Florida Extreme Heat, this is all or more than I expected so far. Very Large Screen and the Tread is great on the joints as well.”
“Easy to assemble. Fun to run on. I run 50+ miles/ wk so when I run indoors I wanted something that would challenge me. The incline on this machine is a butt kicker. Good investment.”
“I enjoy running on the flexible deck also the incline is a killer in a good way!! I can’t believe how much 40% incline is. It is such a great workout. IFit is so much fun, and I am afraid that I am now a member for life.”
“If I had to say one “bad” thing is I wish you could use the TV console to display not just the iFit or the track but stream shows.”
“The screen is so big and I love the give it has when running—so much easier than road running. The incline is insane! But so good to train with the high incline.”
