NordicTrack ACT Commercial 7 Elliptical

Elliptical Design

The NordicTrack ACT Commercial 7‘s oversized and cushioned pedals are designed to be easy on the joints, providing a safer and more comfortable exercise experience. Resistance control is conveniently located on the moving handlebars, which are also cushioned for comfort.

The frame is made of steel and the center drive provides ample stability while using the NordicTrack ACT’s Silent Magnet Resistance (SMR) technology to provide a whisper quiet work out. Center drive design makes it easier for the users to remain in an upright position, able to distribute body weight better.

Being able to adjust the stride is an impressive option on this elliptical. Being able to choose between an 18-inch, 20-inch, and a 22-inch stride makes this a great choice for family use as it will allow users with varying heights to set the machine to suit their individual needs.

Elliptical Workout Programs

The NordicTrack ACT Commercial 7 has 32 different workout programs which means that it would take a lot for one to become bored with their routine. Though this model does not offer any incline options, 24 resistance levels gives the user a wide range of intensities, from beginner to advanced, depending on the need, level, and goals of the rider.


The Nordic ACT Commercial 7 comes with a 5-inch backlit display that includes an iFit module, though one must purchase their own subscription to the app. However, it might be well worth it since iFit allows the user to track workouts, store data, customize workouts, and create journeys using Google Maps.

A full color Android browser display is available, making it easy to look through your stats and then go online while you work out. Check your email or see what’s going on in the sports world, this unit is definitely built for the technology age.

A special CardioGrip heart rate monitoring system is built in to the stationary handlebars.


A cooling fan is included in the unit to keep riders comfortable during work outs. There is a built in tablet holder, and two 2-inch built-in high-quality Intermix Acoustic speakers for listening to music from your MP3 player.
