Nordic Track CX 998 Elliptical Review

The Nordictrack CX 998 Elliptical is the mid level offering from Nordictrack and falls between the Nordictrack 938 Elliptical and the Nordictrack CX 1055 Elliptical (for a similar model checkout the Reebok 645 Elliptical which is the sister model to the CX 998 and is similar in most ways.

The strength of the Nordictrack CX 998 is the amount of options that are packed into a relatively small price tag (for my pick in this price range see the Proform 1280 Elliptical that's a better value).

For starters, the CX 998 offers a one touch incline ramp, silent magnetic resistance and 10 workout programs that let you hit the ground running.

Key Specs on the Nordictrack CX 998 Elliptical:

  • Power Incline Ramp
  • Silent Magnetic Resistance
  • 10 Workout Programs
  • EKG Heart Rate Monitor
  • iFIT Compatible
  • Training Zone Indicator
  • 18" stride length

Like I stated earlier, the Nordictrack CX 998 is almost identical to the Reebok 645 in almost every respect, although the Nordictrack throws in a couple of extras like the Training Zone Indicator, Carb Counter and 2 extra built-in workout programs.

My personal opinion is that the extras you get with the CX 998 (training zone, carb counter and 2 extra workouts) that you don't get with the Reebok 645 Elliptical give the slight edge to the Nordictrack and should bump the Reebok off your shopping list.
