Nordic Track Space saver SE9i Elliptical Trainers

There are two types of elliptical trainers- front-drive and rear-drive. It depends on the location of the flywheel in the elliptical machine. The machine that has the flywheel at the front is front-drive. Wheel in the rear makes a rear-drive elliptical. Compared to front-drive, rear flywheel elliptical machines are more stable and smooth. Front-wheel elliptical trainers are more inclined than the rear wheel, so a bit harder to work out.

So, those of you who want a more flat running surface and lesser slope, you know which one to choose between the two. And to make it easier for you, we have Nordic Track Space saver SE9i Elliptical Trainers. This one has its flywheel at the back.

Review of Nordic Track Space saver SE9i Elliptical Trainers

It has the right amount of stability. Great for improving endurance and stamina. Exercising on it is great for both the upper and lower body. Your arms are also moving at a fluid motion. There is hardly any portion of the body that is not getting the benefit. Such a machine is good for your back and muscle toning, as well.


The machine gets its stability from its 18 pounds flywheel at the back. The incline and resistance can reach the pick without losing the balance and with the inertia intact. It has textured adjustable foot pedals. The two sets of handlebars allow for arm workout as well. You can control the machine, its incline, and resistance with the integrated quick touch handle controls. The Smart chest strap and pulse sensor tracks the heart rate. Take a maximum of 15 minutes to assemble; no need to take help from others. Such a machine at such a reasonable price is the Best Elliptical Under 1500, among the rear-drive ones.

Resistance and Incline

This elliptical trainer has 24 resistance levels and can incline up to 10 degrees. So, working on it can be quite challenging, and you can burn more calories faster. Try the highest intensity when you have already got used to the machine.


The machine has a high definition 7-inch touchscreen. It collects all the data of your workouts. It has a web browser as well, and you can browse the web on it. Browsing will not in any way hinder the data collection of your workout progress. You can control the pre-installed programs and follow them while working out. It has 30 workout apps and programs. It supports the iFit app.

Space Saver

It is a sturdy, compact elliptical trainer with a space-saving frame. Though compact, it is a long machine. So, it might seem like it is going to be hard to store. But the foldable frame has solved that issue.


  • 24 different resistance settings
  • Built-in heart rate sensors on the handle
  • A 7-inch vivid smart HD touchscreen
  • Music port and dual speakers
  • 10-year warranty on frame, 2-year on parts, and 1-year on labor


  • Needed a longer stride length, more than 18-inch

We are in no way implying that rear-drive elliptical machines are the best. Both the type do the same job, so the whole thing depends on your comfort and preference. But if you have opted for the rear-drive ones, this has to be one you must try.
