The NordicTrack SpaceSaver SE7i elliptical uses rear drive technology and is a great mid-range elliptical trainer with a lot of bang for its buck. It has a nice range of features and its slim line design allows you to store it almost anywhere.
This trainer comes with a traditional 5 inch backlit display which allows you to track your calories and workout progress on one easy to read screen. The display being set across a wide platform allows the user to see a visual interpretation of their quarter-mile track as well as keeping track of their distance, pulse and time.
The NordicTrack Spacesaver SE7i elliptical has an ergonomic design that has pedals which have been designed to match the neutral stride pattern of the average adult, with oversized pedals allowing you to move your feet closer or further apart. This elliptical also offers a five point stride advantage that allows you to fully customize the feel of your workout.
Most of the reviews of the NordicTrack SpaceSaver SE7i elliptical are positive with a lot of great feedback relating to its compact design. It’s hard to find an elliptical that folds up and can be easily stored so this is why most people rate this trainer positively. For a reduced price of $999 from the original $1500 this elliptical packs a great punch.
The newest changes to this one for 2017 are the enhanced display, an additional degree of power incline (up to 8 degrees) and the latest version of the company's popular interactive program, iFit Coach.
Using iFit Coach allows users to be able to track real life journeys using Google maps and monitor training which makes the elliptical a lot more user friendly. You also receive custom meal plans and get sleep tips, so it's really a total health program. You access iFit via your tablet or phone, and it requires a small yearly fee.
Also being able to plug your music device directly into the unit gives the user a chance to really personalize each workout. The ergonomic design of the pedals is great and many users are able to adjust their feet position to give a comfortable workout.
There are very little negatives to this elliptical but one thing that might bother you is the fact that the SE7i has a very basic display. If you want something more advanced, with internet capability, consider the up-level SpaceSaver SE9i model.
Also, it has a fixed 18" stride which may not be ideal for very tall users. If that is you, consider one of the other NordicTrack series models.
This elliptical trainer certainly appears to tick all of the boxes even if it is a little complicated. For the price range this trainer is set at there really is nothing more you could ask for unless you specifically want a front drive elliptical.
With so much versatility the NordicTrack SpaceSaver SE7i elliptical is most definitely high up on our wish list.
