The NordicTrack Fusion CST is a functional trainer that uses magnetic resistance to deliver a sweat-inducing workout. This $2,000 piece of equipment is 378 pounds, so you’ll likely need to grab a friend or two to get it inside your home and assemble. Although $2,000 isn’t a reasonable price tag for everyone, NordicTrack does offer stellar financing options with 0% APR for 39 months at just $52 per month.
The Fusion CST has a 10-inch screen that can stream compatible iFIT programming. With the purchase of the CST, you get a 30-day free trial of iFIT to see if you’re interested in continuing the subscription, which is $39 per month. If you purchase this machine, I would recommend also getting the compatible iFIT programming, since you’ll be missing out on a lot of features if you don’t. If you’re just looking for a functional trainer without interactive programming, there are other options that will deliver for a lesser price tag.
With 20 levels of silent magnetic resistance, the Fusion CST delivers up to 100 pounds of maximum resistance. For the average person, this will be enough. However, if you’re particularly strong, you may want to look into something else.
Looks wise, the Fusion CST is impressive. The exposed flywheel and gleaming touchscreen make for a futuristic look on this mammoth of a machine.
