Today’s review will be on the NordicTrack T 6.5 S Treadmill. I understand that I write often about how you could walk, run or jog outside to lose weight.

That is true and I recommend it to those who can or feel conformable doing so. But then I woke up this morning and it dawned on me that not everyone wants or is able to do that.

So I thought and thought on. After about 20 minutes of doing this. I decided to write a review on a treadmill. One that I’m familiar with and have been fortunate enough to own personally.

The Rundown:

I will start off by saying yes this treadmill is expensive. It took me a while to save up and buy it. But once I had it in my possession I quickly understood why it is so pricey. The NordicTrack Treadmill is by far the best one I’ve had ever and I’ve had a couple.

My Reason For Getting A Treadmill


Back to what I had mentioned in the beginning of the review. About how everyone is not able or wants to go outside to walk, run or jog. For various reasons.

You might stay in a bad neighborhood and don’t feel safe running outside. Then you could just want to have the privacy of being in your own place or you could be shy.

My big reason for getting a treadmill was simple here is a funny but true story.

NordicTrack T 6.5 S Treadmill Runner's Dream

I use to wake up around 8 or 9 and go do my morning jog down the street and around the block. This was before I got the job I have now. Well, a few times my morning jogs turned into morning marathons.

That being because I would often get chased by dogs. Not a dog. But groups of dogs. That would just miraculously spawn in alleys. This helped with my cardio significantly. But it wasn’t enjoyable/fun at all.

Even now around 6 years later every time I hear a dog chain or barking I get the urge to take off. My daughters wonder why I won’t get them a pet dog.

I always tell them they are too young. But in reality, I don’t want to bring back any memories. I might break and get them one, though. When they move out and go live by themselves hahaha “My Evil Parent Laugh”.

Why You Should Choose The NordicTrack Treadmill

But yea the reason vary all across the board. You cannot go wrong with this one here. Let me give you a few reason why.

This treadmill, in particular, is ifit compatible. Ifit is a fitness brand that integrates with NordicTrack machines to help you get more out of each and every workout.

It also allows you access Google Maps training routes anywhere on earth and also has automatic stats tracking, personalized workouts, competitions and so much more.

This will require you to have an ifit subscription and it is sold separately.

I ended up getting a subscription with Ifit. I will say that it is one of a kind as far as fitness brands go. If you are looking into purchasing this treadmill. I highly recommend you check it out. It is a nice accessory to go along with it.

Item Specifics

It has a 5-inch backlit display. This is good for tracking your progress. It monitors things such as

  • Speed
  • Time
  • Distance
  • Heart Rate

The 0-10% incline to help you burn more calories. With this, you can also target specific muscles.

With the ifit add-on. It will automatically adjust the incline to whichever Google Maps route you have it set on. To match the natural terrain. It’s awesome It still intrigues me to this day on how they made that possible.

It also has this Flexselect cushioning this allows you to choose your comfort level. You now have control over how much pressure you want to put on your joints. This will help you in the long run. Get it? “long run” treadmill? Ah I know I suck at being a comedian. But any way you adjust this with the simple twist of a knob.

Nordic Track Treadmill #2



It comes with 20 workout apps already installed in the machine. Designed by personal trainers. No need for you to have to worry about an exercise to come up with.

Those guys will get you going in no time. Each program will automatically adjust your speed and time to meet a specific fitness goal. You can get additional workouts tailored to you specifically through your ifit account if you have one.

You can connect your iPod or any other music device you have to hear it play through the dual 2-inch speakers. Yes the NordicTrack T 6.5 S Treadmill has speakers and they sound like something you would hear from BOSE. I kid you not they sound really good.

It comes equipped with a cardio grip heart rate sensor. This will keep track of your heart rate while you run.

The NordicTrack T 6.5 S Treadmill comes with a lifetime frame warranty, a 25-year motor warranty and 1-year parts and labor warranty.

I will say that if you have the money and have the desire to buy a treadmill. It’s a no-brainer to get your hands on one of these. If you can’t afford it save up until you can like I did. I absolutely love mine and use it frequently. Let’s see how this product is doing on amazon as far as customer reviews go.

Amazon Product Reviews

That’s fairly good considering the price of the item. Most are happy you can’t please everybody as you can see. It gets the job done for most. Unless you have some kind of running disorder or leg issues this treadmill will do the trick for you.

 I don’t see why it wouldn’t. This treadmill does everything except take out the trash for you. If you are serious about losing weight and looking to invest in good equipment. Don’t get chased by dogs like I did. Here you go. Thank me later.


  1. Great article on the NordicTrack treadmill, Nordic Track does have a very high reputation for high quality products which last and they do stand behind them with a extremely generous guarantee.

    I will start saving for one of these treadmills, I believe when it comes to exercise equipment your better off saving and getting a high quality product which is going to last and give you long term health benefits.

    How do you rate Nordic Track with Bowflex, my present exercise equipment is from bowflex and has lasted me many years but you have convinced on my next purchase to go with a Nordic Track?

    1. Thank you

      I have had both and honestly you cannot go wrong with either. I like Nordic Track better they seem to have more gadgets and accessories than bow flex. That’s just my personal opinion though.

  2. I’ve been looking for a treadmill and this one seems durable. lot’s of positive points.Though seeing as I am a broke student , I can’t afford it now. I just go out for a walk. but I am going to save up for one of these for sure.

    Do you have recommendations on treadmills for broke students like myself?

    1. Save up or get a membership at a gym. Are you broke as in no money with no income or broke as in homeless no income.

  3. I guess price is all about perception. I don’t think that the price tag is too ridiculously high when you think that it is a Nordic Track and it is a good machine. Take that into account, and with the warranty they provide, it’s really a good purchase. I would guess that these machines would work for a very long time.
