The ProForm Pro 2000 and NordicTrack 1750 have a lot of the same features and functionality. For one, they both use the workout programming, iFit, on their touch screens. This is because both of these brands are owned by the same parent company: iFit. Both the Pro 2000 and 1750 are on our best treadmills list because they’re solid, sturdy, and interactive. You really can’t go wrong with either. However, one will probably be a better fit for you than the other. In this comparison, I’ll let you know exactly how the ProForm Pro 2000 and NordicTrack 1750 stack up to one another, so you can determine which one is best for you.

We recommend the ProForm Pro 2000 and NordicTrack 1750 for different reasons. For instance, if you want a more affordable treadmill that comes with some nice features and programming, then the ProForm Pro 2000 is a wonderful choice. The NordicTrack 1750 is the better option for heavier and more versatile training because of its larger motor and pivoting touch screen.

Now that you’ve gotten the quick overview, let’s dive in and check them both out.

The ProForm Pro 2000 and the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 are both great treadmills that have a lot of nice features. The NordicTrack is better for heavier use because of the larger motor. It also provides more cushioning than the ProForm. Plus, if you’re looking to subscribe to iFit, you might enjoy the larger 14” touch screen that tilts and pivots from side to side to get more use out of the subscription content.

The Pro 2000 offers a lot of the same features that the 1750 has, but at a more affordable price. It also is enabled with iFit on the 10” touch screen. Both of these treadmills fold up to take up less space when you’re not using them.

In-Depth Comparison of the ProForm Pro 2000 and NordicTrack 1750 Treadmills


The ProForm Pro 2000 and NordicTrack 1750 use iFit. iFit comes free for the first month on each treadmill. iFit offers over 16,000 classes that are all led by knowledgeable, motivating instructors. Classes are filmed in outdoor locations all around the world as well as indoors in a studio-class setting.

NordicTrack 1750 iFit Class

All of iFit’s features and content can be seen on the 1750 (pictured here) as well as the Pro 2000 with a subscription.

iFit offers features like AutoAdjust which adjusts the treadmill based on the instructors’ cues and the terrain of the landscape, so you can just follow along without having to worry about changing your grade and speed. This can be bypassed at any time to do your own adjusting though. ActivePulse allows you to do heart rate training with the compatible armband, which is sold separately for both of these treadmills.

In addition to workouts on the treadmill, there are also classes for the elliptical, rower, exercise bike, and fitness mirror that are offered on iFit-enabled equipment. You can also take mat classes like yoga, strength training, and meditation with iFit, too.

The majority of the classes are led by trainers, but there’s also a Google Map feature that lets you pick any location around the world to create your own route. This is great if you want to mix up your workouts and explore on your own.

You’ll have access to all of this on both of these treadmills. Also, if you prefer not to subscribe to iFit, there are preprogrammed workouts and a couple of free iFit classes available without the subscription. These require a wifi connection, as does iFit. Manual mode doesn’t however and it can be used with or without an iFit membership.

We highly suggest subscribing to iFit on both of these treadmills though, in order to get the full functionality of their touch screens.

ProForm Pro 2000 Vs. NordicTrack 1750 Console

With the new updates to the 1750, these treadmills have different looks and different screen sizes. Let’s see how they compare and differ.

ProForm Pro 2000 Console

Proform Pro 2000 Console

The ProForm Pro 2000 has a 10” touch screen that displays iFit.

For most users, the 10” size screen should be sufficient, but users with limited vision might prefer the larger screen on the 1750. We appreciate that the console has added functionality with the quick-touch buttons below the screen. They aren’t quite as intuitive as the ones found on the 1750 because they are two rows under the screen rather than on either side of the screen. However, they function the same way and let you jump from high and low speeds/grades, quickly. This is ideal for interval training.

The Pro 2000 does have a bit more storage than the NordicTrack 1750. There are 2 large pockets on either side of the console for items like a water bottle and phone. Although there isn’t exactly a designated tablet holder for your device, we’ve found that you can place your phone or tablet on the lip just above the start and stop buttons. This is nice if you want to view your own content.

The speakers are clear and Bluetooth-enabled, so you can play content from your device through them. The 1750 no longer has this feature on the new updated model. The fan has multiple settings, but it’s a little noisier and positioned lower than other fans we’ve tested.

NordicTrack 1750 Console

NordicTrack 1750 Entire Console

The NordicTrack 1750 has a new streamlined, design along with a larger 14” touch screen.

The extra 4” from the Pro 2000’s screen, does make a difference if you have limited visibility and prefer a larger screen. The screen has a lot of adjustability as well. It can be tilted up and down to find the best angle and pivoted to each side. This is really beneficial if you want to take treadmill boot camp classes, or mat classes while using the screen. You can simply turn the screen to the side and view iFit’s classes from off the 1750. This is something to consider if you plan on using iFit’s wide variety of content for total body training.

We do prefer the quick-touch adjustment buttons on the 1750 over the Pro 2000. I find I don’t mix up which ones are for speed and incline because they’re on opposite sides of the screen versus in rows on top of each other.

There is very minimal storage on the 1750. The only storage offered is 2 cupholders. They’re shallow but hold my phone or 22oz water bottle. This is the only place I can keep my phone, so viewing content on it while working out is out of the question. You’re locked into using the touch screen on the 1750.

The speakers are clear and go plenty loud, as do the ones on the ProForm. The 1750’s speakers only play content from iFit on the screen, however. The fan also has multiple settings, but it’s in a nice position to work for most sized users. It’s fairly quiet, too.

Construction Quality & Durability

Both of these treadmills have 300 lb weight capacities, making them suitable for users up to that limit. Both treadmills have foldable decks and transportation wheels.

ProForm Pro 2000 Vs. NordicTrack 1750 Frame

These models each have steel frames and uprights that extend up to the console. This design makes them both feel really stable and solid to use.

Proform Pro 2000 User Running

The ProForm Pro 2000 has a standard design that’s easy to use.

NordicTrack 1750 Sydney Running Flat

The NordicTrack 1750 has a sleeker design that’s simple to use, too.

While the handles on these treadmills are plastic, the frame makes them and the console feel sturdy. I prefer the handles on the 1750 because the front handle is a singular horizontal front handle that’s convenient when you need extra balance assistance. The front handles on the Pro 2000 are separated by the fan, so they only have 2 places to hang on to.

The side handles on both machines have a smooth plastic covering, but don’t feel slick. These extend on either side of the decks on both treadmills.

ProForm Pro 2000 Vs. NordicTrack 1750 Motor

The motor on the NordicTrack is larger than the ProForm. It has a 3.5 CHP motor, while the Pro 2000 has a 3.25 HP motor. For training, you can get more use out of the 1750, whereas the Pro 2000 is best for walking, jogging, and lighter running. If you’re looking to log a lot of miles, I would suggest looking at the NordicTrack.

Both treadmills offer an incline and decline range. They incline up to 12% and decline to -3%, which is pretty cool and handy if you’re looking to add more variety to your training. Both treadmills also have 12 mph max speeds, which should be plenty of speed for most users to run. As far as noise, both treadmills are pretty quiet. However, the 1750 is quieter. The incline function on the 1750 has been upgraded to be really quiet, while the Pro 2000 is louder. These are only heard when the deck is adjusting the grade though.

ProForm Pro 2000 Vs. NordicTrack 1750 Deck

These treadmills have the same-sized decks. The ProForm Pro 2000 has a 60” x 20” running surface.

Proform Pro 2000 Running Surface

The ProForm’s deck should be plenty of room for most users to do everything from walking to sprinting.

NordicTrack 1750 Entire Deck

The 1750 has a 60” x 20” running surface, too.

This length is what we’ve found in our testing to be ideal for most stride lengths so both are appropriate for running. This width isn’t the widest that we see on folding treadmills, but it provides enough space for most. We suggest looking into a Sole treadmill like the F80 if you want a wider surface to run on.

Both decks offer cushioning, although the 1750 has softer cushioning underfoot. This is better for those who have joint issues. The Pro 2000 has nice cushioning that provides plenty of shock absorption, it just feels a little firmer to run on. The 1750 has a slimmer profile, so the step-up height is around 9” from the deck to the floor when it’s at a flat grade. The Pro 2000 has a 10” step-up height. This isn’t a big difference but could make a difference for users with balance and mobility problems.

Performance & Functionality

We really like both the ProForm Pro 2000 and the NordicTrack 1750 because they offer iFit’s extensive workout programming with a subscription, and they are solid and stable to use. The ProForm Pro 2000 is more affordable, but you won’t be able to use it as much as the 1750. All of our reviewers have been able to use these treadmills without any problems, and the motors stay consistent during our workouts.

Both treadmills fold up easily. The folding mechanisms let me lift the decks with one hand and they lock into place. To unfold, you just need to press your foot on the bar at the bottom of the deck and the deck will unfold, easily.

Proform Pro 2000 Deck Folded Up

The folding feature on the ProForm makes it not only compact but a great space-saver.

NordicTrack 1750 Folded Up

Although slightly larger than the ProForm, the folding deck on the NordicTrack saves a lot of space when the treadmill isn’t being used.

To move both of these treadmills, you have to grab the top of the deck when folded and tip it back to engage the front wheels. It can require some effort, but it’s doable for most users. This way both the Pro 2000 and 1750 can be moved if needed.


ProForm and NordicTrack offer the same warranty for these treadmills: 10 years for the frame, 2 years for parts, and 1 year for labor. This is a pretty standard warranty. They both require assembly when delivered and we recommend having at least 2 people for set up.

BottomLine/ Recommendation

If you’re in the market for a mid-level treadmill for your home gym, you really can’t beat the ProForm Pro 2000 and NordicTrack 1750 as solid options. We recommend both of these models, however, one will likely fit your needs better than the other. For those looking to get a lot of use out of their treadmill, we recommend the 1750. It has a larger motor and softer cushioning, plus the 14” touch screen is a great size to display your iFit workouts. Plus, the screen pivots up to 360 degrees to either side, so you can take those iFit mat classes next to the 1750, too.

If budget is a concern, then the ProForm Pro 2000 is an excellent choice. You get a lot of the same features of the 1750, like iFit and incline and decline functions, but at a cheaper price. Both of these treadmills fold up so they’re good for most homes, so no matter what your needs and goals are, you’re sure to find that either of these capable treadmills will meet them.
