NordicTrack A.C.T. Commercial 7 Elliptical Rating
This Machine is Discontinued
The A.C.T. Commercial 7 impresses with a console featuring iFit capability, module included. However, this trainer does not fall short when it comes to goal tracking and advanced workout options to make working out fun. The center drive design is also a desirable quality of this trainer, designed to keep the user more upright than with front or rear designed trainers.
Similar to other trainers in this A.C.T. series, this trainer could offer more in the way of adjustable features. While it does offer a manually adjustable stride of 18, 20 or 22 inches, that’s basically it when it comes to customizable options. The flywheel is also lighter than the entry level model, at 23 pounds versus that of 25 pounds for the more inexpensive model.
Just like the A.C.T. Commercial 10, this model offers some nice fitness training and goal setting options. The center drive design is very comfortable to use and easy to store in smaller spaces, but for the price, you might get slightly better deal with the entry level model in this series.

This trainer’s claim to fame is its advanced fitness tracking options, but it lacks elsewhere when it comes to adjustable features.
