Detailed Review of the NordicTrack Elite 12.5 Elliptical

The Nordic Track is aptly named the Elite 12.5 ad that is exactly what it is… Elite.

It really does have everything you would get at a commercial gym quality cross trainer. First off it looks absolutely fantastic and is full of features like built in speaker, MP3/iPod compatible, 32 pre-set workouts, iFit Live compatible and 24 levels of magnetic resistance.

Coupled with the large stride length the massive range of resistance really does provide a fantastic high intensity workout that will improve your fitness, endurance and general well-being. Keep going for longer with the integrated AutoBreeze fan and listen to your workout music via the in-built speakers and MP3 or iPod compatible machine.

The smart SNAP assembly means the machine is easy to put together and makes it impossible to get wrong, so the machine is set up perfectly and runs smoothly in operation.

The price tag is substantial for this machine compared to others that are on the market, but when you consider the build quality, the amazing looks and all the features it does offer value for money. Having said that, due to the price I would only really recommend it for the fitness enthusiast who can get the most out of all the features.

Grab yourself one of the best quality cross trainers on the market and give yourself a killer workout in the comfort of your own home.
