NordicTrack E15.0 Elliptical
Review of the NordicTrack E15.0 Elliptical with Android Browser
Introduced for 2012, the Smart Terrain NordicTrack E15.0 Elliptical is equipped to please serious trainers and people who need lots of extra motivation to exercise. It has a long adjustable stride, a serious incline and decline, 36 iFit® workouts and an Android™ Internet browser. The appeal continues with a 10” touch screen, high-definition video workouts and an iPod port! NordicTrack’s five-year parts warranty is a good sign that this machine is built to last.
Unless you require a short stride, we highly recommend the E15.0 over its many competitors. It’s priced very fairly at about $1500 to $2100 depending on promotional discounts. You might also figure in the cost of an optional iFit Live™ wireless adapter and iFit® membership.

Customer Reviews of the NordicTrack E15
The 10” color screen is what first catches buyers’ eyes. When on display, this elliptical is typically playing one of its high-def workout videos filmed on gorgeous Hawaiian terrain. It goes without saying that video, Internet access and a big screen are very appealing.
Once people use the machine though, they’re especially impressed with its smooth resistance. The 32-pound drive is noticeably smoother than the 14-pound drives that are typical of cheaper trainers.
The dynamic ramp is also a big hit. Adjusting from a -10° decline to a 20° incline with the push of a button, it supports highly efficient toning and calorie burn. Thanks to the adjustable angles and cushioned pedals, the stride on this trainer can be made comfortable for any type of workout.
Overall Review of the Smart Terrain E15.0 Elliptical
The Smart Terrain NordicTrack E15.0 is very well-priced and has many distinguishing features. You won’t find another trainer with this combination of affordability, a significant incline and decline, Internet and dozens of built-in apps. Although iFit costs extra, it will help an owner keep interest in this trainer for many, many years. We give the NordicTrack E15.0 Elliptical five out of five gold stars.
