Let’s face it: Trying to come up with your own treadmill workout can be tough (and downright boring). That’s why I like to rely on interactive programming like Peloton, and I have even done an extensive iFIT review. These subscription-based apps allow you to get started running or walking with the simple click of a button. 

Finding the best iFIT treadmills on the market may seem tough, but luckily, Garage Gym Reviews is here to help. I’ll guide you through everything from the best budget-friendly options to a super high-end pick you’ll drool over. Let’s get started.  

Our team of expert product reviewers and testers are all for programming your own workouts—after all, quite a few of us are certified personal trainers—but it is nice when someone or something else can take the place of that on occasion. That’s where interactive programming comes in. Amongst our team at Garage Gym Reviews, we’ve tested hundreds of different types of on-demand classes from programming services like the Peloton app, iFIT, JRNY, Studio, and more.

  • Warranty is voided if the treadmill is used/stored in a garage

Bottom Line

If you’re looking to add a workhorse of a treadmill to your home gym, we recommend the NordicTrack Commercial 1750.

The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 treadmill is one of my personal all-time favorite cardio machines. I, as well as several other people on our Garage Gym Reviews team, have used this treadmill for all kinds of workouts. We rated it highest for its technology capabilities: The 1750 comes equipped with a 14-inch HD touchscreen that can be moved and swiveled to accommodate iFIT workouts off the treadmill (as well as on, of course). 

I personally really like the 3.5 CHP motor coupled with the 22-inch wide by 60-inch long deck. These are both important features to look for in a treadmill that can support all types of cardio—you want a motor of at least 3.0 CHP and a 20-inch wide by 60-inch long deck, the markings of the best treadmills for tall runners.

NordicTrack also offers great financing options, and the 1750 is no exception. You can take home this cardio machine for as little as $52 per month for 39 months (with 0% APR). No need to stress about paying for it all at once!

In terms of things to be aware of, the NordicTrack 1750 is incredibly heavy at 340 pounds in-box. If you can afford it, I recommend splurging for professional assembly so you don’t injure yourself trying to move or assemble this machine. The 1750 also has a large footprint, but it can be folded when it isn’t being used, so it’s generally less of a concern.

Best Affordable iFIT Treadmill: ProForm Carbon T7 Treadmill

Good for: People on a budget who still want a treadmill compatible with iFIT

Best Affordable iFIT Treadmill

ProForm Carbon T7 Folding Treadmill

GGR Score: 3.8 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

  • Compact and foldable
  • Cushioned running deck for longer runs
  • Integrated speakers
  • Cooling fans

Pros & Cons


  • Compact
  • Foldable
  • Cushioned running deck
  • Integrated speakers
  • Cooling fans
  • Free 30-day iFIT membership
  • Financing available


  • No onboard pre-programmed workouts
  • Smaller running surface

Bottom Line

The ProForm Carbon T7 is an affordable folding treadmill with nice cushioning. Its folding design, added conveniences, and optionality for interactive programming are attractive to those with limited floor space.

Truth be told, the best iFIT treadmills don’t come too cheap. However, the ProForm Carbon T7 treadmill is one of the most affordable machines you’ll find that has all the benefits of interactive programming. Although this deck is slightly smaller than what I would recommend for serious runners, it is the ideal size for walkers of all heights. At 20 inches wide by 55 inches long, the deck is appropriate for comfortably strolling or power walking without concern.

Besides the deck being well-sized for walking, it’s also very comfortable. The cushioning is stellar, and I really enjoyed it as someone who has ankle issues and needs extra support. 

The Carbon T7 is foldable with a gas shock (woohoo) for convenient storage if you don’t want to leave your treadmill out all the time. It is easy to unfold with a quick kick to the lever, and better yet, the deck doesn’t slam on the floor like a stampede of turtles. 

It is worth noting that the T7 isn’t the quietest treadmill I’ve ever used. This isn’t your best choice if you’re looking for a machine that won’t wake family members in the next room. It isn’t obnoxiously loud, but you’ll definitely know it’s there.

I’m also not the biggest fan of how small the touchscreen is–—it’s just 7 inches. For those who find themselves constantly squinting at their phone to read a text or watch a video, you may want to select a treadmill with a larger screen, since it isn’t much larger than your average iPhone. However, for the price point, it’s still nice to know you’ll get a touchscreen.

Best iFIT Treadmill for Walkers

NordicTrack Commercial 1250

GGR Score: 4.5 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

  • Indoor treadmill with incline and decline capabilities
  • Hands-free adjustments
  • 10” screen that can rotate
  • iFIT-enabled 

Pros & Cons


  • Machine learning adjusts workouts based on user
  • 30-day iFIT membership included
  • Use Google Maps to workout in various places worldwide
  • -3% decline to 12% incline
  • Keep track of your stats


  • Users have to purchase iFIT after trial ends
  • Relatively expensive
  • Screen is not very big

Bottom Line

The NordicTrack Commercial 1250 comes equipped with incline and decline capabilities, Bluetooth and heart rate connectivity, workouts with iFit trainers and more.

Looking for a treadmill with iFIT is also one of the best treadmills for walking? We love the NordicTrack Commercial 1250. It’s the newest (and most affordable) in the brand’s Commercial Series line. Despite its lower price tag of under $2,000, the 1250 delivers with impressive specs:

  • -3% decline and 12% incline
  • 0-12 MPH speed range
  • 3.0 CHP motor ideal for walkers and runners alike

With that impressive decline-to-incline range, you can climb hills and really work your leg muscles during your cardio workout.

Of course, the 1250 is compatible with iFIT programming, which plays out on a 10-inch touchscreen that can tilt and pivot. This means you can take your workout off the treadmill and still see and hear your instructor.

In our testing, we rated the 1250 high for its ease of use, the comfort of the spacious running deck, and the amazing programming iFIT offers.

I have to tell you: This is a big, heavy machine. It weighs 281 pounds. While it does fold thanks to a deck that can be lifted and locked into place, it will still take up quite a bit of room in your space.

Best iFIT Treadmill for Long Runs: NordicTrack EXP 7i

Best iFIT Treadmill for Long Runs

NordicTrack EXP 7i

GGR Score: 4.1 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

  • 7-inch touchscreen display
  • iFIT-enabled and comes with a free 30-day family membership
  • 3.0 CHP motor suited for walking or running
  • Speeds from 0 to 12 mph with incline ranges up to 12%

Pros & Cons


  • Interactive 7-inch screen allows for easy access to the iFIT library
  • Folding design
  • Large running surface for a folding treadmill
  • Cushioned running deck
  • One-month family membership to iFIT is included with purchase


  • Small screen
  • No tablet or phone holder
  • Heavy

Bottom Line

True to the NordicTrack brand, the NordicTrack EXP 7i is a high-quality treadmill best suited for walkers, joggers, hikers, and the casual runner. With iFIT connectivity, you will have no shortage of motivation to stay on track towards your fitness goals.

For a stable, mid-range treadmill you can count on, the NordicTrack EXP 7i is a great option. For around $1,800, you’ll get iFIT programming connectivity and a super steady machine (that won’t shake), which is excellent for a long distance run. 

Plus, the 20-inch wide by 60-inch long deck is the ideal length and width for running, even if you’re tall. The 3.0 CHP motor can accommodate frequent running or sprinting. I’m also a huge fan of the adjustable cushioning. If you’re training for a road race and want your treadmill deck to simulate the outdoors, you’ll be able to adjust the cushioning to feel thinner. If you have joint pain or knee issues, you can increase the level of cushioning to feel like you’re running on a puffy cloud.

It is worth noting that the touchscreen included on the EXP 7i is rather small. At just 7 inches, this touchscreen may be difficult to see for those with bad eyesight. If you don’t mind the size, it is a nice feature to even have a touchscreen at all on a semi-affordable treadmill.

If you’re a card-carrying member of the garage gym gang (versus the home gym club), you’ll want to be aware that your warranty will be voided if you store this machine in your garage. The same is true of all NordicTrack and ProForm machines, but it is a fact that needs to be said anyway (don’t make the same mistake as one of our readers).

Best iFIT Treadmill with Incline Training: ProForm Pro 9000

Good for: Those who want to simulate going uphill or who like to incline train

Best iFIT Treadmill with Incline Training

ProForm Pro 9000

GGR Score: 4.5 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

  • Compatible with iFIT
  • Powerful motor
  • Foldable treadmill
  • Large 22-inch HD displays
  • Handsfree incline/speed adjustments

Pros & Cons


  • Large 22-inch display
  • Compatible with iFIT
  • Incline and decline training available
  • Cushioned deck
  • Fan and water bottle holder
  • Bluetooth speakers


  • Priced around $1,800
  • iFIT subscription is an additional cost
  • Heavy machine with a big footprint
  • You cannot store or use this treadmill in your garage without voiding the warranty

Bottom Line

The ProForm Pro 9000 is a powerful, pricey treadmill great for those who want interactive programming from a reliable machine.

The ProForm Pro 9000 is a great choice for iFIT enthusiasts who also enjoy incline training. The Pro 9000 has between -3% to 12% decline and incline available to vary your training. Plus, while doing a challenging hill workout with iFIT, your trainer can automatically control the level of incline and decline (this feature can also be turned off), so all you have to worry about is pushing yourself. 

Besides the stellar incline and decline options, the Pro 9000 features a 22-inch touchscreen with a convenient cooling fan underneath. If you want to listen to your iFIT class in peace without it blaring over the dual speakers, you have the option to connect your headphones via Bluetooth. This is super useful, especially for those who want to be respectful of others in a shared space.

I also like that the Pro 9000 can be folded and stored away while it isn’t being used. The included gas shock makes unfolding the 9000 a breeze (and safer) since it gently lowers the deck rather than crashing to the floor.

In terms of things I’m not crazy about, the weight of the Pro 9000 tops the list. At 263 pounds, the Pro 9000 is an absolute behemoth of a treadmill. Forget trying to move it up the stairs by yourself—either grab a few friends to assist you or hire a moving crew.

Best High-End iFIT Treadmill: NordicTrack Commercial X22i

Product Highlights

  • Commercial-grade treadmill with a 4.0 CHP motor
  • Speeds up to 12 MPH
  • Impressive incline range of -6% to 40%
  • Fully rotating and tilting 22-inch HD touchscreen 
  • iFIT-enabled with 30-day free family membership

Pros & Cons


  • Commercial-grade

  • Quiet
  • Upgraded Bluetooth connectivity
  • Free 30-day family membership to iFIT


  • Heart rate strap not included
  • Will need subscription to iFIT to access workouts
  • Large
  • Expensive

Bottom Line

If you have the budget and space, the NordicTrack X22i is a high-quality treadmill that offers a fully immersive experience and some impressive specs to boot.

If you want the best of the best and don’t mind shelling out the cash to get it, the NordicTrack Commercial X22i treadmill might be a great option for you. This $3,500 cardio machine features a massive 22-inch gleaming touchscreen with which you can view iFIT programming. 

As you follow along with your iFIT trainer, the X22i can automatically adjust to match the incline, decline, and speed of the class you’re taking. How cool is that?

Plus, the X22i has the highest max incline I have personally ever seen on a treadmill––40%. If you really enjoy hill climbs or are a 12-3-30 workout enthusiast, you’ll love having the option to push yourself to the limit.

NordicTrack X22i Treadmill display

The X22i is also cool because you can turn the speed to 1 mile per hour and use it like a manual treadmill. There is an additional set of handles you can grip onto in order to get a better drive, which will activate more muscles.

You also won’t be wanting for much when it comes to extras––expect to see features like Bluetooth connectivity, Google Maps, and two fans.

With so many cool features, there are bound to be some compromises made. One, this machine has a large footprint, and unlike other NordicTrack treadmills, it cannot be folded. This is important to note, especially for those in small spaces since the X22i will have to stay out 24/7. 

For the price, I also wish the warranty was longer. NordicTrack usually offers a 10-year frame warranty across the board, but the industry standard is at least 15 years. For a $3,500 machine, you’d hope to have the included warranty meet the standard.

Other iFIT Treadmills We Researched

The best NordicTrack treadmills as well as most ProForm machines have iFIT capabilities. As someone who has tried a ton of NordicTrack and ProForm treadmills, there honestly isn’t much to dislike about either––both brands make solid machines. This tracks, because they both are under the same parent company, Icon Health and Fitness, which also is associated with iFIT.

Benefits of iFIT Treadmills

Still not sure why you should get an iFIT compatible treadmill? Garage Gym Reviews staff writer and certified personal trainer Anthony O’Reilly weighs in.

“iFIT is well worth the money in my opinion,” Anthony says. “The countless programming options ensure you’ll never get tired of doing the same workout over and over, and the leaderboards are a proven way to help motivate you to move (who doesn’t like seeing their name climb in the rankings?)”

Buying Guide: What to Look for in an iFIT Treadmill

Trying to figure out what to look for in an iFIT treadmill? Don’t worry, we have you covered with the critical things you’ll need to check out before purchasing:

Compatible with iFIT

If you want an iFIT treadmill, your new cardio machine will have to be, well, compatible with iFIT. Obviously, you can use iFIT on any treadmill (using your own device), but if you want a machine that will sync up with the programming you’re doing, choose a treadmill that is specifically designed to be utilized with iFIT.

Large Deck

If you’re going to use iFIT programming, chances are you’ll be doing more than just walking. In that case, look for a larger deck with dimensions similar to 20” W x 60” L. This way, you’ll be able to take full, natural strides without feeling like you’re about to fall off of the deck.

Incline and Decline

The majority of nicer treadmills have incline options, but what about decline? If you want to simulate going downhill, finding a treadmill that offers decline options is critical. Quite a few of the NordicTrack treadmills offer significant incline and decline options, so be sure to check them out.


The longer a warranty is, the better it is for you, the customer. Generally speaking, you want to see at least 10 years for the frame warranty, especially if you’re purchasing a mid-range treadmill. However, I don’t hold the same standard for budget-friendly options because it is unreasonable to expect cheaper machines to have a longer warranty.


Only you can decide your budget, but the majority of the treadmills I’ve listed also offer financing options. If you’re in love with a $2,000 treadmill but can’t afford it all at once, consider financing the machine. Plenty of the financing options include 0% APR, which means you won’t pay any extra for the benefit of breaking your payments up. 

Speed Options

Depending on how fast you plan to run, make sure your treadmill can support it. Some speed demons need a machine that can run upwards of 14 miles per hour, but most treadmills generally cap out at 12. 

Make sure your new machine can keep up with the pace you want to run. I also recommend checking to see if the treadmill has a quick select button, which is especially useful for those who do interval training. You don’t want to waste valuable time changing the speed during your sets if you don’t have to.

Best iFIT Treadmill FAQs

Is iFIT worth it for a treadmill?

If you’re looking for interactive programming to do both on and off the treadmill, I’d recommend iFIT. There are a variety of classes to choose from—think walking, jogging, distance running, and HIIT treadmill workouts. Whether you’re an entry-level fitness enthusiast or an advanced athlete, both can make iFIT programming work for them.

If you prefer to do your own thing or don’t want to feel like someone is talking in your ear, it might not be the best choice for you. 

However, if you feel like you need preset workout programs or help tackling your fitness goals, iFIT can be a great resource for you.

Is iFIT only for NordicTrack treadmills?

Nope! iFIT is available on and compatible with a variety of treadmills. Even fitness equipment that isn’t specifically designed to be used with iFIT can still be used to complete various iFIT classes. If you have the iFIT app on your phone, you can theoretically use it on any cardio machine—you just won’t have the benefit of it streaming on a screen attached to the machine.

Is ProForm better than NordicTrack?

ProForm and NordicTrack are both part of the same company. However, both brands carry different treadmills that I enjoy, so I wouldn’t say one is better than the other for home use.

How much is an iFIT membership?

You can choose an individual membership with one user for the iFIT app at $180 per year. There is also an option to get an iFIT subscription for your family, where you can have up to five different profiles for $39 per month or $396 per year.
