Runner's World Magazine Names NordicTrack Treadmill "Biggest Bang for the Buck" in Annual Treadmill Review

February Issue Highlights NordicTrack Stability, Comfort and iFit Live Innovation

LOGAN, UT--(Marketwire - February 19, 2010) - Runner's World, the worldwide authority on running information, named the NordicTrack A2750 Pro treadmill the "Biggest Bang for the Buck" in its February 2010 issue featuring treadmill reviews.

The magazine tested the latest batch of treadmills and highlighted just four units in its annual winter fitness issue. The NordicTrack treadmill sells for significantly less than the 8 other treadmills highlighted in the review. The MSRP for the NordicTrack A2750 Pro is $1599, and is currently at a promotional price of $999.

Runner's World, who asked 14 staffers to log hundreds of miles on each treadmill tested, said, "Given its low price tag, the NordicTrack A2750 Pro has a lot of bells and whistles. This stable fold-up treadmill comes with a touch-screen console, iPod speakers, and a comfy yet firm deck. It's also the only treadmill we tested that has a built-in fan."

The review continued with, "Add the optional iFit Live Module and you get something truly unique -- a treadmill that wirelessly connects to the Internet to download new workouts and new running routes you create through Google Maps."

The magazine also highlighted the overall benefits of treadmill training, including incline training, cushioning that protects knee and hip joints, and maintaining a consistent pace because of the motorized tread belt.
