Detailed Overview

The A.C.T. Commercial 10 is a top-rated elliptical with center drive by NordicTrack. Machines in NordicTrack’s A.C.T. Commercial Series aren’t actually commercial – they’re meant for home use – but they have a “club feel” because of high quality components. The Commercial 10 is the leading model in its line. It has a smooth drive, an adjustable stride, and a 10”-wide touchscreen that lets you surf the web and access iFit Coach workout programs. Now on sale for $1,499 with a five-year parts warranty, the A.C.T. Commercial 10 elliptical is a great value for keeping fit at home.

Made to train almost anyone, this fitness machine has adjustable stride and a wide range of resistance. Stride settings are 18”, 20” and 22”, so each user can take natural strides and exercise with other settings to train muscles differently. Resistance comes from a 25-pound flywheel with 24 settings.

Workout guidance on NordicTrack ellipticals is extensive. The Commercial 10 provides 35 built-in workout programs, plus with WiFi access it can run iFit Coach. All programming is shown on the 10”-wide touchscreen. A subscription to the iFit Coach app can replace a gym or personal trainer, as it includes unlimited elliptical workout programs and hundreds of exercise videos to use away from your machine (for example, classes in yoga and kickboxing). The most engaging iFit Coach elliptical workouts are immersive and interactive; you move with synchronized scenic views and can virtually exercise alongside a celebrity personal trainer. iFit Coach makes it easy to find workouts that match your ability level and preferences, as you can sort the choices by intensity level. Also, you’ll get customized workout recommendations each time you use the elliptical. Fitness tracking, meal advice, sleep reminders and other features can be part of your iFit Coach experience too.

Other specs for the NordicTrack A.C.T. Commercial 10 include a chest strap for wireless heart rate monitoring, a cup holder, a workout fan, and a sound system with 2” speakers for your MP3 player. Transport wheels are attached for help repositioning the machine.
