Editor's Rating: 9.2/10
This model has been discontinued.

The NordicTrack Elite 9500 PRO treadmill was introduced for 2010. It has been redesigned for 2014 and has a lot of great features!  This treadmill is designed for gym use but is also advertised to residential customers as a luxury item. Here is the treadmill review on it:

What We Like:

  • Motor: With a 3.80 CHP continuous horsepower DurX™ Commerical Pro commercial-grade motor, this treadmill is truly designed for serious gym training.
  • Display: The Elite 9500 uses the same console technology that’s found in luxury automobiles. Solaris™ Control Panels have ergonomically positioned controls and user-friendly software to make exercising easier.
  • Track: The long 22”x60” track features DuraStride™ Adjustable Cushioning. Depending on the individual user’s preference, the track reduces impact on one’s body by 24% compared with road training.
  • Workout programs: The 9500 PRO includes an iFit card reader. Users can continually update their workout routines by purchasing 8-week cards that target weight loss, wellness, circuit training, and performance. In addition, 40 workout apps are built into the machine. Choose from 8 incline, 8 calorie burning, 7 intensity, 7 speed and 10 iFit® workout apps.
  • Television: The Elite 9500 features a 10? full color high definition touch display with a Google Andriod ™ Browser. Walk, jog or run your favorite outdoor course, watching your workout progress using Google Maps™ Street View, read through emails, or visit your favorite social media sites, all in the comfort of your living room.
  • Audio: An iPod® dock and two 3-inch Intermix Acoustics speaker system provide excellent audio entertainment.
  • Extras: A heart rate monitor, wireless chest pulse strap and 8 inch adjustable Autobreeze™ console fan are also included on the Elite 9500.
  • Space-saving: This deluxe model can be vertically folded to conserve space. Patented Airlight assistance makes this an easy process.
  • Warranty: This treadmill is designed for lifelong use. It includes a lifetime warranty on the frame and motor, two years on other parts, and a year of in-home service.

NordicTrack’s Elite 9500 is an excellent buy for those seeking a luxury treadmill. It’s built to last a lifetime with a powerful but quiet 3.8 CHP motor.
