NordicTrack CX 998 Elliptical Review

The rear-drive CX 998 has a fixed 18-inch stride length and moving handlebars that supply an upper-body workout, too. Its "1 Step" workout controls allow you to push a single button to adjust the resistance to your desired level instead of pushing a button repeatedly to increase or decrease resistance levels.


The CX 998 has 10 levels of NordicTrack's trademarked "Silent Magnetic Resistance".


Notable features include a built-in cooling fan, a built-in handgrip heart-rate monitor, iFit compatibility and a power-adjust incline that lets you alter your stride angle to target specific muscles. The CX 998 also has an unusual Carb Counter feature, which displays your workout in terms of carbohydrates burned instead of the typical calories burned.

Price and Warranty

As of August 2010, the NordicTrack retails for about $1,000 but can often be purchased for less. It comes with a general 1-year warranty.
