How Do You Find The Best Nordictrack iFit Elliptical?
Looking for a Nordictrack iFit elliptical?
iFit started out as a way to add new workouts to your elliptical trainer.
iFit workouts came in SD workout cards you inserted into your trainer console.
However Nordictrack has since redeveloped iFit for the 21st century – and it’s so much more now.
iFit LIVE is now a way you can connect your elliptical to the internet to track your workout stats online.
You can also download countless new workouts to your machine, including some from Jillian Michaels where she coaches you through your workout.
Plus you can also run famous trails all over the world and actually watch real life landmarks pass you by in the console screen – very virtual reality.
However, because some older elliptical have iFit cards and others have iFit LIVE, many people are left wondering “How do I find a Nordictrack iFit elliptical?”
Here’s the Easy Answer on Finding A Nordictrack iFit Elliptical:
The iFit SD cards are basically done – they were phased out a few years ago and Nordictrack is no longer putting them on their trainers.
So if you find a Nordictrack elliptical with the iFit card reader, it’s old – and extremely out of date.
All of the new Nordictrack ellipticals (including all of the reviews on this website) are iFit LIVE compatible. And almost all the 2015 models are also iFit LIVE compatible too.
One Thing To Watch Out For With Nordictrack iFit Ellipticals:
Now there are some trainers that are iFit LIVE compatible – but because they only have a dual color console, you won’t be able to see the iFit LIVE trails in full color.
However Nordictrack is starting to add tablet holders above their consoles on many trainers. And if you have a tablet, you can connect to iFit LIVE online that way – and watch the landmarks pass you by in the tablet screen. So that’s an easy way to work around it and still enjoy all the benefits that iFit offers you.
Best Nordictrack iFit Elliptical Trainers Right Now:
The most popular Nordictrack iFit Ellipticals right now are probably the:
Nordictrack Freestrider FS7i (mainly because of the 38 inch stride)

Nordictrack hasn’t always been clear about iFit and there’s a lot of confusion out there. But hopefully that clears up some of the confusion about iFit ellipticals for you!
