The Achiever is a full-featured NordicTrack that's ideal for those interested in closely monitoring their fitness progress. With the Achiever, you can accurately measure, in pounds or kilograms, the resistance by using the calibrated resistance settings on the upper- and lower body exerciser gauges. This is a sweet machine without the jumpy gauge or 'jitters' common with this model and those that have not been properly tuned. We remove the flywheel coating which caused excessive binding back to the original brushed steel for smooth performance from start to finish. Similar to the Medalist - only Oak instead of Walnut and without the gold anniversary adornments.

PRO vs. ACHIEVER: These are both identically framed skiers, EXCEPT the ACHIEVER has calibrated gauges which actively measure the RESISTANCE. The ACHIEVER allows you to adjust the leg resistance "on the fly" or as you ski by simply turning a dial. (vs. stopping and raising or lowering the belt tension clip manually on the upright tube of the PRO). The arm exerciser works the same except the ACHIEVER has a active gauge with a large arrow as you pull the arm cords both left & right. RESISTANCE is not to be confused with a performance monitor which measures TIME - SPEED - CALORIES and DISTANCE. Some performance monitors also have an odometer and / or with an optional Heart Rate / Pulse module
Look for the Gold Medalist Medallion to know it's A Genuine Nordic Fitness Ski Machine !
