NordicTrack T5.5NordicTrack T5.5

Web Price: $1,299 | Sale Price: $599

A quiet treadmill with a mediocre motor. Decent incline capabilities and impressive console with interactive programs. It’s a bit pricey for the quality of parts, but if you can find it on sale, it’s worth considering.

Expert Reviews

Here’s what the experts are saying about the NordicTrack T5.5 Treadmill:

“The T5.5 does look a little smaller than the T5.7, but both the T5.7 and the T5.5 are $599. If the T5.5 and T5.7 are going to be priced the same then it would probably be best to go with the T5.7 as it comes with more incline and the Scrolling Crosstrainer display. If the T5.5 were to go on sale for cheaper than the T5.7 then this deal would definitely be something to consider.
Still, the T5.7 and T5.5 are both good models that come fairly cheap and would make a great treadmill for 1st timer treadmill users!”

“Cheap components on this machine give you the same result you get when a mangy dog tangles with a chicken…a real mess!” -Treadmill Doctor

“I just purchased the NordicTrack T5.5 treadmill over a week ago and just love it! A bargin at $700 Canadian.a” -Treadmill Talk

“Overall, $600 is a pretty decent price and it’s unlikely Nordictrack will lower the price on this one. Even at $700, it’s still a pretty good deal but if the price is increased to $800 or more when you read this, we would lay back on this one and go with something else.” -Which ICON Treadmill

“Just bought and started using today. Assembled by myself in less than an hour and a half. All parts were there and instructions very clear. Wont do the iFit until I find my rhythm. Been years since running, trying to lose some weight and keep my heart beating. This seems to be perfect.”

“I LOVE MY 5.5 & ifit !!! delivery however was DAYS late. had to give away concert tickets. :( so i lost money :( OLD DOMINION COMPANY WORKERS ARE BUTTHEADS. REALLY REALLY MEAN ! upset with Nordictrack for delivery problems. But sooooo happy to FINALLY have it !!!!!! WORKS AWSOME !!!! BEST ON MARKET !!!!! TRULY !!!!!!”

“My T5.5 was delivered yesterday. I paid extra for assembly, which I’m glad did! Two men assembled it in about 45 minutes. I used it last night and it felt great!”

Here are a few reviews from users that bought the T5.5 from Sears. You can read more of their reviews here.

“The treadmill has a great name behind it, along with a great Sears price. I have not tried other treadmills, but this is a little noisey. I use a surround sound system with my tv, so I have it turned on and up. It is a great treatmill for the price. It has a lot of bells and whistles.”

“Only con I found was the Treadmill panel speakers are weak even with iPod volume turned all the way up, I will be looking into this from the Company, if you’re buying the treadmill solely on the iPod function don’t, its a great treadmill so far with a lot of potential.”


The NordicTrack T5.5 is not worth a penny over 700 dollars. NordicTrack has this product listed about right. Get it on sale or don’t get it. It’s not a bad treadmill for the right price. Just know you are getting what you pay for with a treadmill at this price.
