Although the first version of the NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill was released in 2019, a few newer and improved models were released since then. As its name suggests, it is a commercial-grade treadmill equipped with a powerful motor and offers an impressive range of features including iFit connectivity and free iFit membership for one year. It’s similar to the NordicTrack 2950, but its console has a smaller display and its motor is only 4.0 CHP.

Frame construction

The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill features a heavy-duty steel frame combining oval and rectangular tubes in its construction. All the steel parts are coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish; the color used is gray with the NordicTrack logo painted black, these being the only colors available for this machine.

Of course, the trainer integrates several parts made of durable thermoplastic material. The most notable ones are the side rail covers, the motor cover, and the supportive console dashboard. These are all pretty durable, especially the side rail covers which should be able to support users up to 300 lbs (136 kg) with no problem.

The fully assembled machine is pretty large. Its footprint is approx. 80″L x 40″W (~206 x 99 cm). It is recommended, though, to leave at least two feet of clearance on each side of the deck, and at least three feet of clearance at its rear for ease of access and safe usage.

The machine is equipped with the EasyLiftTM folding system. It offers the possibility to fold the deck up for easy cleaning under the treadmill or simply to save space. The EasyLift mechanism involves a hydraulic cylinder that enables the deck to lower slowly when it is unfolded to prevent damage. With the deck folded up, the machine’s footprint becomes approx. 42.6″ x 39.2″ (108 x 99 cm), while its height reaches 72.9″ (185 cm).

This NordicTrack treadmill is pretty heavy. Its exact net weight is not specified, but its listed shipping weight is 399 lbs (181 kg). So the transport of the packaged unit requires at least a few people. However, once the machine is assembled, it can be moved by only one person. Its front has transport wheels and if you’re able to move approx. 45 lbs (20 kg), you should be able to relocate the machine on its wheels and also fold the deck up.

Deck construction, incline, and decline

The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill is equipped with a sturdy deck. To begin with, it is rated for a maximum weight limit of 300 lbs (136 kg). It offers a large running surface of 60″L x 22″W (152.4L x 56W cm) so it should accommodate users up to 6’5″ (196 cm) with no problem, allowing a complete range of motion.

The belt is multi-layered. Its top layer is designed for an improved grip. It moves on 2.5″ precision-balanced non-flex rollers. These rollers have a crowned design for improved traction and for a prolonged belt lifespan. They also integrate high-grade ball bearings for a smooth belt motion.

The machine’s deck is equipped with the RunnersFlexTM cushioning system. It consists of two pairs of large shock absorption elements reinforced by metallic springs. These are situated at the middle of the deck, two on each side, but unlike for the older NordicTrack treadmill models, they are concealed by the side rail covers. Evidently, this cushioning system is designed to alleviate the impact generated by your cadence. Therefore, a run on this treadmill is considerably more forgiving on your joints and back than a run on asphalt or concrete.

The NordicTrack 2450 treadmill integrates a power incline/decline system. Differently put, the machine’s incline/decline system is motorized, so the console can make adjustments automatically, depending on the workout in use.

There are 15 levels of incline and 3 levels of decline available. With the incline set to the top setting, the deck will become slanted by approx. 15%. Conversely, with the decline set to -3, the deck will provide approx. 3% decline.

The unit’s console is equipped with gradual and quick-selection incline/decline buttons. The gradual adjustment buttons are placed at the bottom of the console. You can simply press and hold them until you get the desired incline/decline. The quick selection incline/decline buttons are placed on the left side of the display. If a certain incline level is selected, the deck will automatically and slowly adjust its angle until it reaches the desired level.

With the incline set to zero, the height of the running platform is approx. 11″ (28 cm) above floor level. Conversely, with the incline set all the way up, the front part of the deck will become elevated by a few extra inches. Therefore, it is recommended to use the machine in a room with a ceiling that is at least 20″ (51 cm) higher than your own height.

Drive motor

The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill is equipped with a 4.0 CHP DurXTM motor designed to offer maximum performance during the longest workouts, even if the user is close to the maximum 300 lbs (136 kg) weight capacity. It is equipped with an internal cooling system. It also has a side flywheel to neutralize vibration and deliver a very smooth motion for the running belt.

The machine makes available a speed range between 0.5 MPH and 12 MPH. There are gradual adjustment keys on the lower console keypad and the quick selection keys on the right side of the console display. The gradual selection keys have a double function. A short press will adjust the speed in increments of 0.1 MPH, while if you press and hold them, the speed will adjust in 0.5 MPH increments.

The motor itself is fairly quiet. But just as for any other treadmill, your running cadence will generate some noise. Differently put, in an apartment building, your neighbors will definitely hear you running.

Last but not least, the treadmill requires a standard 120V circuit. It comes with a standard power cord for American-type outlets, not an AC adapter. The connector for it is situated at the front of the deck, next to the On/Off switch.


The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill is equipped with an advanced console unit. It features a 14″ LCD display with LED backlight for improved readability. It has touchscreen technology so it basically works like a large tablet. It is WiFi and Bluetooth enabled, has an internal processor, and works on its own operating system, so it’s basically a computer. This being said, you can connect it to the internet and should be able to install various apps on it.

The machine’s console is designed to work with iFit. Actually, when you start your treadmill for the first time, it will prompt you to connect to iFit. The machine comes with a 1-year iFit membership. iFit has a large database of workout videos with different trainers, offers interactive workout possibilities, and also allows you to create and run on your own trail via Google Maps.

Of course, in case your iFit membership expires and you don’t want to renew your subscription, iFit still offers several free workouts. Plus, the treadmill offers its Manual mode, so you can run and adjust the speed and incline manually. The display tracks all the important workout metrics including time, distance, speed, pace, calories burned, calories burned per hour, current heart rate, and average heart rate. Speed and distance can be set either to English units or Metric units. Also, the console can read your pulse through the integrated sensors or from a wireless HR chest strap. This accessory is not included, though.

Among other notable console features, we can count the workout fans, the sound system, the device holder, and the accessory holders. The workout fans are integrated under the display. They have multiple speeds so you can press the controls multiple times to get the desired speed. The sound system consists of two 3″ speakers integrated at the base of the console unit. Therefore, not only that you can play and view the iFit workouts with sound, but you can also play music on the machine’s console. Plus, you can connect a set of earphones to the console via the AUX port, or sync Bluetooth earphones with the console.

The cover of the fans protrudes from the console and its upper part can be used as a shelf for your tablet or smartphone. And finally, the console dashboard has two large trays, one on each side, which can serve as bottle or accessory holders.

Assembly and Maintenance

The treadmill’s deck with the motors and the other parts comes pre-assembled. However, the two upright posts, the accessory tray, and the console require user assembly. The manual provides clear assembly instructions and all the necessary tools are included. Therefore, the task shouldn’t take more than an hour. But due to the massive weight of the machine, at least its transport requires minimum two people.

The machine’s deck comes pre-lubricated so it shouldn’t need any lubrication for a long period of usage. The running belt should be kept clean, free of dirt, textile fibers, or other objects that might be dragged under it and get caught in the motor. Also, it is recommended to periodically inspect the machine for loose bolts and parts.
