Our NordicTrack 9.0 elliptical is the best piece of home exercise equipment that I have owned to state. Performance I am able to work out in the comfort of my house and get the same results that I would be getting if I went to the gym and wasted money on some monthly membership. Comfort There is nothing more comfortable than being able to work out in the privacy of your own home. I am able to blast my music if I am in the mood, even sing along if I desire. The best part: I don't get all those weird looks from people around me. Love working out at my house. Design NordicTrack hit the nail on the head when they designed their 9.0 elliptical. The footprint is smaller than most of the other ellipticals on the market today and that means there are more possible places to house it in my small apartment. In addition, since there are no loose parts or things that bang and make loud noises, I am able to use my NordicTrack 9.0 Elliptical in my apartment during any point of the day or night without disturbing my neighbors.
