QUICK REVIEW

Pros The Elite 14.7 is jam packed with features, allowing it to rise above the competition of other ellipticals in the $1000-$1500 price range. NordicTrack is somewhat notorious for adding extra features, and this machine happens to be an exceptionally good example. You will find enhanced pedals, adequate cushioning throughout, resistance setting and incline controls found in the handlebars and more. Don’t forget the built in speakers that come standard with all NordicTrack machines to keep you encouraged and inspired during your workout.
Cons Great technologies are included as well, like a 7” full-color touch screen with iFit compatibility. However, this manufacturer has a slight reputation for glitches and breakdowns on some of its features. This obviously isn’t the norm, but history has dictated that the more features packed in, the more risk of disappointment at times.
Summary Technology and durability combine for one heck of an elliptical with the Elite 14.7. With a 10-20 degree incline/decline ramp and customized fittings for the pedals and more, this elliptical is perfect for multiple users and in an affordable enough price range for the whole family to enjoy. With a touchscreen and iFit compatibility, you can check your email, browse the Web or partake in one of countless exercise programs that will motivate you to get back on for another workout the next day.

Our Least Favorite Features

 Overall, the NordicTrack Elite 14.7 is a well-regarded machine. Of course, like any fitness unit, it comes with a few hiccups:

  • A lifetime frame warranty is great, but a 2-year labor warranty and a 5-year parts warranty leads to a point in your elliptical’s life where you may have to pay for expensive replacement parts out of pocket.
  • Feature-packed machines run more of a risk for things to go wrong, including technical glitches and broken wheels.

The Bottom Line

This is an incredibly impressive machine. While NordicTrack has been stingy on fitness programs in the past, this one comes with 38 workouts with the option to add endless more with iFit. With a quiet motor and a safe, sturdy frame, the adjustable pedals and handgrips make for a customized, effective workout. Enjoy the full color touch screen display featuring an Android browser, allowing you to get work done while getting fit too. If you’re looking for a mid-priced elliptical that will keep you challenged and inspired while still being reasonable in terms of space and maintenance, then the Elite 14.7 will likely suit you well.
