Lowest Price

GET THE Nordictrack A.C.T. Commercial-2012 FOR $899

Good Points

  • Features an adjustable stride from 18” to 22” which is good for families with multiple users of different heights
  • The 2012 Nordictrack A.C.T Commercial supports iFit Live whereas the models from previous years only supports the older iFit workout card technology
  • 2012’s weight capacity is 350 lbs which is 100 lbs more than the older A.C.T commercial
  • 26 preset workout programs is a good number and would take some time for you to work through and having 22 resistance levels (not many elliptical have more than 20) would add some variation as well
  • Flywheel weight has increased by 8 lbs to 20 lbs which should contribute to a smoother and more stable workout

Bad Points

  • Parts warranty is only 2 years only so we kind of wonder how much weight there is to the word “Commercial” and we also don’t know how heavy this 2012 model is
  • Depending on how you look at it, the center drive design of this elliptical could either be a benefit or detriment. If you’re short on space and don’t mind the different striding motion, the A.C.T Commercial’s design is actually a strength
  • Though it has variable strides, if we’re not mistaken, it needs to be hand or manually adjusted


  • The Nordictrack A.C.T Commercial has been a hot item and a best seller for Nordictrack in 2011. The 2012 is better in several ways and lucky for you, the price is still a relatively reasonable and affordable $899 at the time of review. For a sub $1000 elliptical, you really can’t expect it to hold up like a true Commercial rated elliptical despite the product name. The design is also somewhat experiment and uncommon but rather than deter buyers from buying, it actually seemed to have spurred users to buy this model like crazy.
  • If you’ve never worked out on an elliptical before, then this is as good as any as your first elliptical. If you’re used to a front or rear flywheel, there are other choices available from Nordictrack. All in all, if you’re aware of the differences and potential pitfalls, an $899 is a fair and reasonable investment.
