NordicTrack’s Commercial 9.9 Elliptical is a heavy-duty, top-of-the-line elliptical with quality components and a sturdy frame. Intended for commercial use, the 9.9 comes loaded with a 7-inch smart HD Touchscreen, automatic trainer controls, Bluetooth audio capabilities, Google Maps technology (with iFIT), a water bottle holder, dual 2-inch digitally amplified speakers, an AutoBreeze workout fan, and oversized cushioned pedals.
It also features a 25-pound inertia-enhanced flywheel, Silent Magnetic Resistance (SMR), 17.5-inch to 18.7-inch auto adjustable stride, 22 levels of digital resistance, power-adjustable incline, up to a 20% incline, and one-touch controls. The steel frame supports user weights up 350 pounds which, while that is a respectable weight capacity, the stride length may feel constricting.
What stands out with the Commercial 9.9 Elliptical is that it is currently advertised as “free” with required 4-year membership to iFIT. But therein lies the catch: a required 4-year membership to iFIT. If you planned to purchase this machine solely to use its 30 pre-programmed workouts, then this caveat may be a deal-breaker.
But the reality is that most people are purchasing this elliptical to utilize the interactive programming available through iFIT. It opens up thousands of live and on-demand workouts offered from scenic locations around the world. Led by world-class trainers, you can focus on your workout using the automatic trainer-controlled resistance and stay motivated as well as connected to a global fitness community.
