Interview with a happy owner of a NordicTrack treadmill

It was such a happy day for me when Janae Jacobs from agreed to a short interview about her NordicTrack C 900 treadmill experience. Not only I’m a big fan of her personal blog, but I find her advice about food and running inspirational. Janae has owned this NordicTrack model for 15 months and she would recommend it to other runners without hesitation. Read the full interview below.

NordicTrack Janae Jacobs

What NordicTrack Model do you have and for how long have you run on it?
I have the NordicTrack C900 and have been running on it for about 15 months.

Where did you buy it?
We bought it from NordicTrack.com.

Did you have any problems with shipping and assembling the treadmill?
We had zero problems with any of the shipping and my husband was able to assemble the treadmill in about 2.5 hours.

How intensively do you use the treadmill?
I use the treadmill at least 3 times a week. I have completed some 15 milers on the treadmill, lots of hill work and also some speed work. Currently it isn’t used as intensely because I am pregnant but I am still putting a lot of miles on it.

What I do and it has worked

2007-02-05 10:58:25 by climber703

Here's what I did. It is sort of the whole picture. i had to set realistic goals for myself. I used to set unrealistic goals and then when I didn't meet them I'd get frustrated and stop trying.
First goal was to lose weight and I am quite happy with only loosing 2 pounds a month as long as I am having progress I am ok.
The exercise I do now is I swim at least 3 times a week. I am up...festyle change. i'm not doing this to loose weight I'm doing it because it feels good now and I like what I feel like after I exercise. Loosing weight is a side benefit. when I focused on the weight loss I failed continually. If I don't want to be fat and yo yo all the time I have to have a lifestyle change that becomes part of me just like the lifestyle change I had when I began gaining weight.

I got the best advice from a client of mine

That sells fitness equip. to high end public gyms and home gyms. I asked him almost the same question when I was just starting out.
I said 'What is the best piece of equip. on the market that will help me at home or should I join a gym and just use their stuff?'
He said, 'The best piece of equipment is the one that you will USE. If you buy a bowflex or gazelle but don't use it there is no point. If you join a gym but never go then you are just throwing your money away. Think about who you are and be honest with yourself about it.'
So I got my treadmill, a yoga mat, and some weights, and it's been working out great!

I think you're off to a great start

Our home gym is in our basement. We have a what I think you're talking about for the standard weight exercises, a treadmill, and an elliptical. Been thinking about getting a rowing machine, but haven't yet. We also have a TV with VHS/DVD and mats down for stretching (and some lifting).
I don't know if you know what you're doing with weights, but you might want to get a book to help you get...'re working all of the major muscle groups. I know I've mentioned it on here before, but my favorite is "Getting Stronger" by Bill Pearl, which was the textbook for the weightlifting class I took in college. We had considered getting a Bowflex, but decided that I'd try sticking to a routine in there for a few months to see if I got the benefit I wanted without crowding our space more, and I did.

Need serious help

I've tried crash diets, I've tried reading labels for hours, it's only resulted in small short-term losses and hours wasted in the store. Let me tell you right now, I'm a very, very heavy-set person, I'm currently 430 pounds.
I've lost some before now from weightlifting, but before that I seemed to equalize around 450 or so. I've gained a good amount of strength, and that may be offsetting...d be able to continue it after I reach my goal. Money is a short term object, as I'm currently unemployed, but I hope to fix that shortly. Budget would be, 20 dollars a day?
Just a rudimentary shopping list, I'm horrible at shopping for myself, which probably got me here in the first place.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to those that took the time to read this.

    I'm 14 and just got back onto healthy eating after 3 days of starving cause my friends convinced me. Hopefully I can do this and not fail and starve again like I always do. So does this meal plan sound healthy? Keep in …us 40-60 minutes a day on a treadmill with an incline of 6 and speed of 3-3.5mph and light strength training cause I have a bowflex thingy. Any suggestions would help, just know that I'm not a creative or talented cook.

    • D- Stop fooling yourself. At your age, your metabolism is at it's prime...if you f+ck it up now, you will have to deal with the unhealthy results for the rest of your life. I know... NOT EATING IS NOT AN OPTION!!! Go thro …g TV on my computer, took the stairs instead of the elevator, and smiled a lot...I lost 4 pounds. You'd be surprised how many calories you can burn from smiling! KEEP SMILING!!!...and STAY HEALTHY WITH YOUR DECISIONS!!! G

    • I would say that it sounds relatively healthy. maybe try eating a little bit more fruit throughout the day to keep your body healthy enough for exercise. keep up the good work!
