Pros:Easy to use programs. Simple to set up.
Cons:The console could be more user friendly.
The Bottom Line: Even though the machine is big it's well worth the space it takes up. A in my book.
Six months ago I was at Sears looking for some exercise equipment when my wife mentioned we should look at treadmills for cardio training. I wasn't really into treadmills but I humored my wife and looked at them anyway. There were some nice models but the only one that caught my attention was the NordicTrack C1800 model. I didn't really like the fact that it was the largest treadmill in the store but I jumped on it anyway and gave it a test spin. To my amazement the machine was very easy on my knees. The whole platform gives way a little to body pressure to make for a more shock absorbing run. Needless to say I was so impressed that I bought the mammoth machine and took it home in my SUV. Yes, it did fit with some body english.

Once I got the machine home and set up I tried it out again. 20 minutes later I found myself still running and enjoying it. One of the features of the machine that I don't use but is kinda cool is that there is a key that you have to insert into the console to get the machine started. Attached to a key by a string is a clip that you can attach anywhere to your body. This way in case you fall from the treadmill the key is pulled out and the machine stops.
Some other features of the machine are increase/decrease buttons for the incline. 10 different levels of speed (I barely go above level 6 because I'm a pansy), and several different training programs. Another feature that I have never seen on similar machines is a line out jack. With this jack you can connect to a portable CD player, a portable stereo, a home stereo, a vcr or a computer. This way you can work out to music or videos.
Basically this treadmill has everything you need to appease your running appetite except a well balanced diet. Remember running alone won't make you lose weight if your still eating junk food all day long. In the six months since I have owned this machine I have dramatically changed my appetite and run for 2 miles every other day. I have lost 22 pounds and feel awesome. Kudos to NordicTrack for making a fine product.
