Summary NordicTrack 2450 Review: The Bottom Line

The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Treadmill is one of our favorites and our pick as the best treadmill for running for many reasons. It has a hearty motor, engaging training content, incline as well as decline abilities, and a comfortably cushioned deck to run on.

In this review of the NordicTrack Commercial 2450 Treadmill, I’ll highlight everything you need to know, but in short, you can expect to get in a lot of running, walking, jogging, and even hiking on the 2450. We love this treadmill for all types of use, but it is especially excellent for running, HIIT training, and speed work.

Homes with multiple users or those who do more intense training will appreciate this efficient, well-performing motor. The 2450 also folds up when you are finished to clear floor space in your home. The large 22” touch screen makes viewing and navigating iFit’s expansive library of classes extremely interactive and easy to use. It also swivels from side to side for training on and off the deck. This feature lets you get more out of iFit and your training, as well as more out of the NordicTrack 2450, in general.

Editor’s Note, 11/28/2023: We’ve updated this NordicTrack Commercial 2450 review to add the results from our testing of the motor’s sound, accuracy, and responsiveness as well as the treadmill’s overall performance as we’ve continued to test and use it for the past 8 months from when this review was published.

We’ve ranked the NordicTrack 2450 on these best treadmills lists: Best Treadmills For Home Use, Best Treadmills For Runners, Best Folding Treadmills

What We Like
  • The large 22” touch screen is lovely and plenty large to make iFit’s workouts feel extremely interactive. It tilts and pivots for working out off the treadmill, too.
  • The 3.6 CHP motor is quiet, and responsive, yet hearty, making it perfect for runners.
  • The overall design is streamlined to look sleek yet it’s practical and easy to use.
  • We’re impressed with how much use you can get out of this treadmill, plus it folds up and has transportation wheels for moving when needed.
  • The belt size is ideal for most running strides, yet it is compact to fit well in your home space.
  • The cushioning is forgiving on your joints and very comfortable to run on.
  • The extra adjustment buttons on the console make this treadmill ideal for interval training.
Areas for Improvement
  • We love the iFIT training programs (who wouldn’t love running through Greece!). Just note that iFit is a paid subscription. To get the most out of the 2450, we recommend subscribing to iFit (you can use the treadmill in manual mode without the subscription)
  • Streaming from 3rd party apps on the screen or even on your phone or tablet isn’t possible on this model, so we recommend placing it in front of a mounted TV if you’d like to watch Netflix and other content outside of iFit. We would like to see Netflix and other apps, or a device rack be added to the console for more streaming options in the future.

Testing And Running On Treadmills For Over A Decade

We’ve not only been running on treadmills for over a decade, but we’ve been testing treadmills for over a decade. Our testing process to create full treadmill reviews, like this one of the 2450 is a rigorous process that involves not only using the treadmill like you would at home, and then some, but running each model through our tests. We test the accuracy of the treadmill’s speed, the incline and decline range, how long it takes the motor and deck grade to adjust, its overall sound output, as well as the deck cushioning comfort, and the overall performance and workout experience. Our goal is to give you the full run-down of every treadmill that comes into our studio so you know what to expect.

In-depth NordicTrack 2450 Treadmill Review: Testing & Analysis


Dimensions/Storability

When unfolded, the NordicTrack 2450 is 78.5” L x 35.6” W x 65” H. The overall dimensions both length and width-wise, don’t sacrifice any unnecessary space in your home so if you have a limited amount of space for a treadmill, the 2450 is more accommodating for that with its sleek and functional design. Don’t get me wrong- this is still a 300 lb treadmill, so it’s substantial, but a little more compact than treadmills in its class, like the Sole F85 and Bowflex Treadmill 22.

The NordicTrack 2450 can handle a lot of use and then folds up when you’re done using it. This is a huge plus for most homes. There are two transportation wheels so you need to tip back the treadmill when it’s folded to move it.

NordicTrack 2450  Moving

The deck feels fairly light to lift when folding, and it’s easier for me to tip back for moving compared to other models.

As far as the profile of the deck, it is about 9.5” from the floor to the top of the side rails when the deck is at a flat grade. It’s pretty slim, making it more friendly for lower ceilings. We recommend checking out this article to determine the appropriate ceiling height you’ll need to safely use the 2450. For a frame of reference, a 6’0” tall person who plans on doing a lot of running on the 2450 should have at least an 8.5-foot tall ceiling.

Onboard Workouts & Apps

The training content is a huge factor on most treadmills, especially if the treadmill comes with a large attached touch screen like the 2450. A good rule of thumb is that if a treadmill has a touch screen it most likely comes with subscription training content. In this NordicTrack 2450 Treadmill review, I go over everything available on the touch screen below.

iFit

iFit is a fitness training platform that’s available to stream on the touchscreen when you’re using the NordicTrack 2450 Treadmill. iFit requires a subscription fee to use which is $39 per month. If you’re new to iFit, you’ll get a free 30-day trial to iFit to try out, which we recommend taking advantage of because of everything it has to offer. You can also purchase 1-3 year subscriptions of iFit with the 2450 to save you some money. A 1-year membership comes out to $28 per month, a 2-year membership is around $22 per month, and a 3-year membership is around $17 per month. So, if you know you want to use iFit, you might want to utilize these purchase options.

iFit’s library of classes consists of thousands of trainer-led workouts. These are filmed indoors and outdoors. The outdoor classes are engaging and each trainer serves as your own personal tour guide. I prefer them and have found iFit’s library to be more expansive when it comes to outdoor classes than other fitness apps, like Peloton.

iFit has several classes that are a part of different training series. A series of workouts are multiple classes that are filmed in the same location and/or feature the same instructor. The goal of a series is to focus on a specific training goal and then as you take each class throughout the series, the workouts are programmed to help you reach that goal.

NordicTrack 2450  iFit Road To Recovery Series

Part 3 of the Road To Recovery Series explores all of Northern Italy.

One of our team’s favorite instructors, Tommy Rivers Puzey, aka Tommy Rivs, guides you through a series worth checking out: Road To Recovery. Tommy Rivs is a professional ultra-runner who was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer a few years ago. This series highlights Rivs’ recovery journey. Although all of his classes and the other 2 parts of the series are inspiring and motivating to take, part 3 is really special. Not only do you get to explore beautiful areas of Northern Italy and learn about the landscape and cities, but in each workout, you get to more learn about Rivs himself. He has an amazing on-screen presence that makes your workout feel intimate and captivating.

If you love taking trainer-led content, and even if you don’t, we implore you to try this iFit series.

It’s not your typical “come on, one more rep” type of workout (although iFit has those too). Instead, the Road To Recovery series is unlike much of anything we consume on our screens nowadays – it’s good for the body and soul. Tommy Rivs has a very inspiring story and it is a treat to learn more about him. Every workout is a guided walk that’s around 15-20 minutes, so it’s perfect if you’re new to fitness, getting back into it, or need to incorporate more walking throughout your day – which let’s face it, most of us do. Plus, with over 16,000 workouts and several different trainers to choose from, you have plenty of choices.

The indoor classes are filmed in professional studios. These feel like taking in-person studio fitness classes. iFit offers on-demand workout classes that you can schedule ahead of time to take. In addition to listening to the instructor, you can listen to music in the background of each workout. The radio-like music experience lets you choose between different genre stations. The music isn’t built into the classes, so you can change the music station throughout the class. We would like to see music incorporated into the studio classes. Unfortunately, you cannot listen to your own music through the speakers, so for that, you’ll need to use your own speaker. You can choose to balance or mute the music and/or the instructor to listen to more of one or neither.

In addition to treadmill classes, there are also classes like strength training, yoga, cycling, rowing, and meditation. Some classes require equipment, while others just require a mat. If you already have another piece of equipment from NordicTrack, like an exercise bike, your iFit subscription is available to use on both machines. iFit has a mobile and TV app for on-the-go training, too.

When using iFit on the NordicTrack 2450, you can create your own routes using the Google Map feature. A map of the world is available for you to pick any location to draw a route to. Once in the workout, Google Images pop up to show you the location while you’re running.

The music is the one area where I’d like to see some improvement in iFit. The music plays in the background of each workout and functions kind of like a radio. There are different genre stations that each have a preselected playlist of music to listen to. I would like to see some of the indoor studio classes incorporate music into the workout so you listen to it with the instructor and the entire class. I think this would help add to the overall energy of these workout classes. As it is right now though, it’s nice to be able to change between the stations to change songs and to have a pretty wide range of music to choose from.

NordicTrack 2450 Console Close

You’re locked into iFit with a subscription and the class library is only available on the screen.

iFit is a complete training program for your entire body and mind. With a monthly subscription, you’ll have full access to the library and with the number of classes offered, you’re sure to add a lot of variety and value to your fitness journey with iFit. I highly recommend checking it out.

OnBoard Workouts

If following along with an instructor isn’t for you, manual mode is available with and without a subscription to iFit. Without a membership, you can also take a featured iFit workout. Just know, that you won’t get full access to iFit’s selection of classes and features without paying for a monthly subscription. Unfortunately, outside streaming options like Netflix aren’t available on the 2450 even with iFit. We would like to see 3rd party streaming apps become available to stream in the future.

Also, wifi is required for iFit. Manual mode can be used without wifi.

Console

A lot of the functionality of the 2450 is built into the large 22” touch screen. The screen is a major component of the console as well as the treadmill. The screen has a lot of adjustability options. It tilts up and down and swivels to either side for you to train on and off the treadmill. So, you can take a trail run on the 2450 through parts of Montana and then turn the screen and take a yoga class on a beach in the Bahamas.

NordicTrack 2450  Screen Pivoted

This feature lets you get the most out of iFit’s content.

The screen is a large 22” touch screen. I find that I prefer this size on most equipment, like NordicTrack’s Incline Trainers, as well as on the S22i Studio Bike. 22” is the perfect size to see everything on the screen well. It also helps with navigating iFit because the numbers and letters are larger than on the 14” screen found on the NordicTrack 1750. So, when I tap manual mode in the top right corner, I have a bit more space to select it on the 22” screen.

Typically, with screens of this size on fitness equipment, you can expect some screen wobble. On the previous model of the 2450 there was some shaking, however, the screen now is much more stable and has minimal shaking. This is a great upgrade!

We appreciate the quick-touch buttons on both sides of the screen, too. On the right, the numbers can be selected to change your resistance, and the buttons on the left control the incline/decline. These make the NordicTrack 2450 perfect for interval training because you can quickly change your resistance and grade, and switch back and forth between high and low levels. I can also use these buttons to get to specific levels like 3.3 if I press the number 3 on the right side twice.

NordicTrack 2450  Console

This layout makes NordicTrack’s treadmills some of the easiest to use, at least in my opinion.

There are adjustment buttons below the screen to change the incline/decline by 0.5% and the resistance by 0.1. When you’re taking an iFit class the 2450 will adjust as you go to match the terrain and the instructor’s cues. This is convenient for eliminating having to constantly change the speed and grade yourself, although you can bypass it anytime and manually adjust the 2450 whenever you want to.

With iFit, the 2450 also adjusts automatically with the AutoAdjust feature. This feature changes the speed and incline settings to match the format of the iFit workout. Plus, if you’re taking an outdoor class, the deck will incline to match the terrain of the location. Once you take a few of iFit’s workouts, your effort levels are factored into this feature so the treadmill adjusts to speed settings that align with your fitness level.

The soundbar below the screen provides a wide volume range and sounds clear even at the highest setting. The volume can be adjusted in iFit to balance the sound levels between the trainer’s voice and iFit’s music or you can choose to mute one or the other. You can turn the volume up and down on the console, too. Below the speakers, is a fan that provides a pretty strong breeze. With four power settings, you can select a suitable airflow for your workout. It is nicely situated and hits my neck and face when I use it. I’m 5’1” for reference. The fan does make some noise, but it’s not excessive or distracting.

NordicTrack 2450 button overview

The new design is streamlined like the previous model. Everything is well within reach.

The only storage available is two cup holders for your water bottle and a personal item like a phone. The cup holders are small but hold my water bottle and iPhone just fine. Something to keep in mind is that there isn’t any place to put your phone or tablet on the Nordictrack 2450’s console. A device rack would be a nice update in the future. As is, you are pretty locked into using the content on the touch screen.

Build Quality

In addition to some impressive features and functionality, the NordicTrack Commercial 2450 feels solid and continually has impressive construction through every upgraded version of the model. The 2450 is a home treadmill that we recommend for running. Even though “commercial” is in its name, this treadmill isn’t meant to be used in a public gym. It’s made for home use only. Also, commercial treadmills are priced closer to $10,000+ whereas the 2450 costs just under $3000.

NordicTrack 2450 Entire Treadmill

The overall design of the NordicTrack 2450 is functional and sleek.

The 2450 has a 300 lb weight capacity so it’s suitable for folks up to this limit. 400 lb weight limits are typically the largest we see on motorized treadmills, so if you’re looking for a treadmill closer to this, then check out the Sole F85.

Frame

Built on an all-steel frame, the 2450 treadmill has a sturdy feel and a sleek design. With a 10-year frame warranty, NordicTrack helps to instill confidence in the construction. I know when we’re using the 2450, we can feel the innovation and quality that has gone into this treadmill.

From the steel frame, steel stabilizers connect and extend up to support the console and side handles. The coating is textured plastic on the side handles. Between the side handles and continuous front horizontal handle, the NordicTrack 2450 offers plenty of balance assistance. The side handles are within a really good reach, too.

Motor

The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 has a 3.6 CHP motor. This is an ideal size that we look for in treadmills for running and heavy use. So, if you’re looking for a treadmill for long-distance running, the 2450 is one of our top picks. It’s also fairly quiet, consistent, and responsive. The noise output when using this treadmill at 3, 6, 9, and 12 mph ranges from 56.5 dB up to 70 dB. This equates to the same noise level as the average clothing dryer at the lower speed levels and a clothing washing machine at the higher speeds. So, for those who do a lot of laundry, like me, you shouldn’t find the NordicTrack 2450 to be very loud or disruptive in your home. For reference, the ambient noise where we tested the 2450’s sound was 35.5 dB.

The 2450 has a 12 mph max speed which is a 5-minute mile pace. Unless you’re an elite runner, this speed range should be ideal for most people. 12 mph is also pretty standard for most home and even commercial-grade treadmills. Another plus to the 3.6 CHP motor is that it adjusts pretty quickly. The time it takes the motor to go from 1 mph up to 12 mph is 23 seconds. It isn’t as fast as the Horizon 7.8 AT, but it is faster than Sole’s treadmills. I really enjoy interval training on the 2450.

We appreciate that the 2450 inclines and declines. Most treadmills only offer an incline function, but the deck declines to -3% as well as inclines up to 12%. This helps to add versatility to your training and engages your anterior leg muscles. We measured the incline, decline, and deck when it was flat to double-check its accuracy. The incline measured at 12.8%, the decline came out to be -1.2%, and the deck was at 1.6% at a flat grade.

While you might be scratching your head at these results, something that we’re unable to measure in the amount of cushioning in the deck. To factor in the cushioning, this is where we go by feeling, meaning how soft and shock-absorbing it feels to run on. When watching someone run on the NordicTrack 2450, you’ll notice the deck lowering slightly every time their feet land on the deck. The deck cushioning is the amount of give the deck has when you land on it. NordicTrack treadmills have some of the softest and most absorbent decks.

Since the 2450’s deck feels flat when it’s set to 0% and the decline range is noticeable, if the deck’s cushioning was able to be factored in, the full 12% incline and -3% decline would be pretty accurate. We’ve also found in our testing that most treadmills don’t have a completely flat deck whether this is due to the cushioning or to simulate the experience of running outside, so the 2450 certainly isn’t an outlier here.

NordicTrack 2450 Decline Running

It looks subtle, but the -3% decline is noticeable as you’re walking and running on the NordicTrack 2450.

NordicTrack 2450  Matt Incline Feet

Training at this 12% is effective for working your posterior muscles.

The incline and decline function is quieter than previous models, which is a nice upgrade. The incline and decline can barely be heard over the drive motor. At 3 mph when adjusting to the full incline, the treadmill was only 57.5 dB.

Overall, with a 12 mph max speed, 12% incline, and a -3% decline, you have plenty of variables to work with to vary your training and running workouts. Users should be able to do a lot of working out on the 2450, without disrupting their neighbors or housemates.

Deck

In addition to the hearty motor, the deck is an ideal length to do some serious training on. It’s 60” long which we’ve found to be perfect for most users to have plenty of room to run/sprint on. We’ve found in our testing that most stride lengths have enough space for running at higher speeds.

The deck is 20” wide, which we’ve found to be plenty of room for our team to comfortably run. If you’re a larger user, or if you want a little extra width, then we recommend looking into the Sole F85, Bowflex Treadmill 22, or either of NordicTrack’s Incline Trainers.

NordicTrack 2450  deck

There is plenty of room to run, yet it takes up less space in your home.

Treadmills from NordicTrack have some of the softest cushioning we’ve run on, that I mentioned earlier.

The 2450 feels soft and has nice shock absorption to help prevent discomfort in your legs. We notice a significant difference in running on the 2450 as opposed to outside on asphalt, and even running on the Peloton Tread, Sole F85, and Bowflex Treadmill 22 which all have firm cushioning. The cushioning feels comfortable and what we’ve grown accustomed to feeling underfoot when using NordicTrack treadmills. It isn’t as soft as the Incline Trainers, but it doesn’t feel bouncy at higher speeds like those tend to.

Previous versions of the NordicTrack 2450 featured adjustable cushioning. That is no longer the case. The cushioning now remains on at all times. Our team doesn’t miss the adjustable cushioning, and we doubt you will either.

As far as the overall build quality, you can expect a comfortable and enjoyable running experience from a treadmill that is designed to keep up with you. The 3.6 CHP motor is capable of handling a lot of running and the 2450 folds up when you’re finished.

Warranty

We recommend having at least two people assemble the 2450, to ensure a smoother process. NordicTrack backs up the 2450 with a standard 10-year warranty for the frame, a 2-year warranty for parts, and a 1-year warranty for labor.


Should You Buy the NordicTrack Commercial 2450

Running on the 2450 feels comfortable and frankly – enjoyable. No dreadmill here!

The features and streamlined design work cohesively to provide a solid, cushioned, quiet experience. The motor and incline function works to handle all levels of training and running.

In compiling this NordicTrack 2450 Treadmill review, the testing and amount of abuse our experts put it through confirmed that this treadmill is one of the best treadmills for running, in our humble opinion, and extensive experience using all kinds of home treadmills.

When picking a model to run a lot of miles on, the 2450 is always one of my top choices. We recommend the 2450 for runners who want a folding treadmill with forgiving deck cushioning, that’s easy to use. It’s engaging to use with iFit and has an intuitive design that makes this treadmill great for those looking for guided and interactive training options.

We highly recommend the 2450 for running, sprinting, jogging, hiking, and walking. Whether you’re a serious runner, an interval junkie, or have multiple runners in your household, this treadmill can accommodate a wide range of training levels.

NordicTrack 2450 Treadmill Q&A / FAQ

Does the NordicTrack 2450 work without the internet?

Yes. The NordicTrack 2450 has a quick-start manual mode that doesn’t require wifi to use. You can literally just hop on and go. If you want to log into iFit or take the free featured iFit workout, you’ll need to connect to the internet. iFit requires a subscription fee, however, it is definitely worth it if you want to take advantage of high-quality training features on the 2450.

Can you use the NordicTrack 2450 without iFit?

You can use the NordicTrack 2450 without iFit. A manual mode tracks your metrics and allows you to adjust the treadmill as you go is available, as well as a featured iFit workout for you to try out. iFit is completely optional, but it definitely makes for an interactive and immersive training experience on the 2450’s 22” adjustable touchscreen. We think that the outdoor-filmed workouts and AutoAdjust technology make iFit’s subscription worth it. Plus, on this treadmill, you can utilize even more workouts like strength training and yoga with the swivel screen for training off the treadmill’s deck.

Does the NordicTrack 2450 fold up?

The 2450 has a folding deck that helps to save a lot of floor space when you’re not using it. To fold the deck, you lift the back end and it locks into place. Once unfolded, the deck slowly lowers to the floor on its own. Moving the 2450 is pretty easy when it’s folded, too.

What is the difference between the NordicTrack 1750 and 2450 Treadmills?

The NordicTrack 2450 is the higher-end machine of the two, with a larger motor and touch screen. It has a 3.6 CHP motor and a 22” adjustable touch screen for streaming iFit. The NordicTrack 1750 has a 3.5 CHP motor and a 14” touch screen.

Is our NordicTrack Commercial 2450 review a paid review?

Our NordicTrack 2450 review isn’t a paid review. NordicTrack doesn’t pay us to review the 2450 or their other treadmills. NordicTrack and other brands send us their treadmills to test and review, however, all of the treadmills we recommend on our best treadmill lists are chosen by us based on our testing and how they each perform for our team.

We do earn a commission when you purchase through our affiliate link in this review. This is at no extra cost to you, and it helps us out so we can keep creating informed reviews for you. We also earn a commission from several other treadmill and fitness brands as it is our goal to test as many treadmills as possible to ensure we’re recommending the absolute best treadmills on the market. The more treadmills we have to compare to one another, the more informed our reviews are.
