Wondering which is best for you?
These are two very popular mid-range treadmills that have both pulled in various “Best Buy” recommendations over the last couple of years.
They both give you more than a lot of other similarly-priced treadmills like high 15% incline and even 3% decline.
This adds a lot more crosstraining options to your workout.
However if you’re trying to choose between them there are some key differences that you should know about before you buy.
This post will give you a rundown of how these two treadmills compare to help you choose the best one for you.
Proform 2000 vs Nordictrack 1750 Treadmill – Price
The Proform Pro 2000 treadmill is a bit more affordable than the 1750, coming in around $1399 with Free Shipping here.
The Nordictrack Commercial 1750 has a few more premium features and is generally seen as a higher grade treadmill – so it comes in a bit higher at about $1599 with Free Shipping here.
So what do you get for the extra $200? Is the Nordictrack 1750 worth the extra money? Let’s find out.
Proform 2000 vs Nordictrack 1750 – Console
You’ll see one of the biggest differences between these two treadmills in the consoles. The Proform 2000 has a bright, backlit console that is easy to read. However it’s only dual color:
The Nordictrack 1750 treadmill on the other hand has a full-color console. It’s also touch-screen sensitive and shows you the iFit workouts in full HD color.
This alone can make a huge difference in the enjoyment of your workout. With the full-color console, it’s easier to read your workout stats. Plus you can enjoy the iFit world scenery and HD workout videos in full color from the console display (more on iFit below).
You’ll also notice that the layouts of the two consoles are a bit different with the one-touch buttons in the front on the Proform 2000 vs running up and down the sides on the Nordictrack 1750 treadmill.
This isn’t a make-or-break thing, just a personal preference as to which layout you prefer.
Both consoles also come with a bracket you can use to attach your tablet above the console – which a lot of people really like. You can attach your tablet and surf the web or watch Netflix or YouTube videos as you run.
Proform 2000 vs Nordictrack 1750 – Motor
The motor is the heart of your treadmill. You want one that’s strong enough to take whatever workout you throw at it. Runners needs stronger motors whereas walkers can generally get away with a bit less.
The Proform 2000 treadmill comes with a 3.5 HP motor – which is excellent for the price point. The Nordictrack 1750 does go just a bit better however with a 3.6 HP motor. However the difference is pretty minimal.
Proform 2000 vs Nordictrack 1750 – iFit Coach Differences
As stated above, with the Nordictrack 1750 you can connect to iFit Coach directly through the console display and watch iFit workouts that way. You can also connect with your tablet and watch iFit workouts that way.
However since the Proform 2000 only has the dual color console, the only way to watch iFit scenery is by connecting through your tablet.
So you will need a tablet if you want to use iFit with the Proform 2000 treadmill (see pic below).
Also, iFit Coach is an optional extra with the Proform 2000 treadmill (meaning you’ll need to pay for an online subscription if you want to try it).
However if you get the Nordictrack 1750 through the Manufacturer you can currently get a 1 year membership to iFit Coach included. So you can try it out to see if you like it for a full year – which is an amazing deal.
When it comes to the Proform 2000 vs Nordictrack 1750 comparison – both treadmills have their benefits.
The Proform 2000 has a lot of strong basics like the 3.5 HP strong motor, 3% decline and extra long belt. You also get the option to add iFit and a tablet holder above the console.
Plus it’s about $200 less than the Nordictrack 1750.
On the other hand, the Nordictrack 1750 has the upgraded full-color, HD console, which can make your workouts a bit more enjoyable.
It also has a slightly stronger motor and the 1-year iFit Coach offer (as of this writing).
So at the end of the day it comes down to your preferences, budget and goals.
