If you are about to do something about your fitness goals and want a great but also affordable treadmill, it is hard to go wrong with NordicTrack T Series 6.5 Si.

You really get much more than you pay if you get the T Series 6.5 Si.

What You Get

The thought of buying a commercial-grade treadmill may be far from your mind, but we have some good news; the T Series 6.5 S features a commercial grade 2.6 CHP motor which is very hard to find on an entry-level treadmill.

We can understand there can be some concern about space when buying a treadmill, even at a great price, it’s still an investment of space in your home or your garage. The treadmill can fold using its patented SpaceSaver design with EasyLift Assist so you can save some space when you are not using the machine.

The motor is putting out 2.6 CHP horsepower and the maximum speed can reach up to 10 MPH which is pretty standard for a treadmill with a 20-inch wide and 55-inch long running belt.

The maximum user capacity is 300 pounds.  


Aside from its new console, the T Series 6.5 Si is strong and stable and the motor backed by a lifetime warranty.  The treadmill has a great warranty for a machine in its price class, including:

  • 10 on the frame
  • 2 years on the parts
  • Lifetime on motor
  • 1 year on labor


The most notable difference between its predecessor, T 6.5, is the newly added 10-inch HD touch screen which allows you to use iFit’s features like Google Maps and live fitness class. You have endless workout options with iFit.


The treadmill features 0-10% motorized incline with OneTouch incline control, it can also be controlled by the iFit app in real-time to adjust to the elevations of the terrain to make your workout more fun and challenging.

Heart Rate Monitor

The treamill can track your heart rate with its EGK hand grip heart rate monitor.

Pros and Cons

We know that no treadmill is perfect, so let’s take a closer look at the pros and cons of the T Series 6.5 Si.

We like;

  • The treadmill comes with a 1-year free membership to iFit
  • FlexSelect Cushioning: This feature is designed to change the firmness of the running surface, you can simulate on-road running or reduce the impact on your joints by adding more cushioning.
  • SpaceSaver design: It is very easy to fold the treadmill
  • There are built-in speakers and an aux audio input for music

We don’t like:

  • No built-in fan in the console
  • No USB port for device charging

In Conclusion

This popular model is even better than before, now it comes with a 10-inch HD touchscreen which brings it to another level. With excellent overall features, a commercial-grade motor, 1-year free iFit membership, large touchscreen, as well as a very good price, the T Series 6.5 Si is a great treadmill for any home user and is worth every penny.
