NordicTrack T Series Treadmill Reviews [2021 Edition]

The NordicTrack T 8.5 S (NTL11219) is a high-end home treadmill with premium features, a robust build, and a premium look and feel. For a year, you’ll receive an iFit membership that includes live immersive training with Google StreetView and 16,000+ on-demand workouts from world-class trainers.

You can choose from 50 on-board workout programs or create your own by adjusting the pace, incline, and time settings. Although this treadmill does not have a dedicated tablet or smartphone holder, you can position your laptop just below the NordicTrack T 8.5 S (NTL11219) Treadmillworkout fan. It comes with a two-year labor warranty, a five-year parts warranty, and a lifetime frame and motor warranty. So you should be assured that you’ll be able to get help with any replacements, upgrades, or other issues that arise.

It has a 3.5 CHP DurX Commercial Plus motor with a smart-response drive mechanism, reduced vibrations, and self-cooling for fast and intense workouts. It has a foldable feature that saves room and has a decent size walking belt that measures 20 x 60 inches. Your knees and joints will not be harmed thanks to the good FlexSelectTM cushioning. On its robust frame, the overall user weight capacity is about 300 pounds, which can fit a large percentage of adults.


However, it can be folded and moved with ease thanks to its compact yet sturdy transport wheels. The treadmill is 59 inches tall and the walking platform is 10 inches off the floor, so it can fit even in rooms with low ceilings. The dual 2″ digitally amplified speakers on this treadmill have built-in Bluetooth Audio capabilities and an Aux port, so you can listen to music from your phone or other devices wirelessly. On this treadmill, the sound quality is actually very fine.

With the digital speed and incline control, the 3.5 CHP DurXTM Commercial Plus motor gives you a running speed of up to 12 mph and an incline control of 0-12 percent. A big 10-inch full color capacitive pivoting touch monitor is featured on the T 8.5 S Treadmill. On the 10″ display panel, there are buttons for Start/Stop, Incline Up and Down, Speed Up and Down, and Auto Breeze Fan, as well as fast speed and incline buttons ranging from 0 to 12. It weights 254 pounds and measures 35.5W x 78.5L x 59H inches as a very heavy duty product.

Please keep in mind that you can only get a proper warranty if you buy this product from, since they are the approved seller. If you purchase it from a seller or website other than Amazon, the maker, NordicTrack, cannot guarantee its authenticity or consistency. We highly recommend this fairly costly commercial grade treadmill if you want to get in shape and stay fit in the comfort of your own home and if you have the budget for it. The NordicTrack T 8.5 S is a fantastic fitness item that is well worth the money.
