The NordicTrack E7.5 elliptical is a solid step up from their entry-level E7.1 machine. The E7.5 elliptical features 22 resistance levels and 24 programs for calorie burning or performance. Listing at just under $1000, it can be found on sale for just $779.
The NordicTrack E7.5 elliptical has a backlit LCD touch screen that displays speed, time, resistance level, pulse rate and calories burned. You can also see how you're doing on the track style display. Programs include 12 each for performance enhancement and calorie burning. All programs were designed by a certified fitness instructor.
The specs on the E7.5 elliptical include:

Reviews by home users praise the iFit compatibility and minor details like the iPod docking station and water bottle holder. Sometimes the details are important, and NordicTrack has responded to this with attention to details.
Reviews also noted that the iFit system gives users almost unlimited route possibilities through Google Maps™ and HD videos. If you buy the iFit module with your NordicTrack E7.5 elliptical machine, you'll get a one year subscription to iFit at no cost (an offer reviewers love).
While nearly all reviews are favourable, there are some users who were frustrated by poorly aligned parts. They usually got this resolved, but they weren't impressed by the acceptable but lacklustre response from customer service.
If you can't get motivated and stay motivated, the iFit system is designed for you. You can get workout tips from experts and even be motivated by fitness and weight loss guru Jillian Michaels if you like. NordicTrack has built a reputation for providing solid, mid-priced elliptical machines and the E7.5 falls into this category.
Construction is above average, with strong parts and a very smooth glide due to the 20 pound inertia enhanced, rear flywheel, but there are occasional issues with alignment that can make assembly frustrating and difficult. We hope that quality control will improve, which would kick the value of the NordicTrack E7.5 elliptical up a notch.
