FreeMotion 570 Elliptical Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The addition of the touch screen to the 570 is a nice additon if you like feature rich machines. Our 3rd Runner Up in the Best New Elliptical category.
The addition of the touch screen to the 570 is a nice additon if you like feature rich machines. The Freemotion 570 offers good basic quality with a large assortment of features that will make your workout easier.
The Freemotion 570 is a decent elliptical. It sells for $1,499, which is an appropriate price range. It's packed with features to grab and keep your attention while exercising, which some people find helps time to pass by a little more quickly. It was the 3rd runner up for our Best Buy award in the New Elliptical category.
Ergonomically speaking, this elliptical is terrific. Most models below $3,000 won't have a more natural range of motion than this model does. It's also surprisingly adjustable considering how low it sells for. The stride length can be set between 20"-22". This gives you the chance to find which length works best with your body type.
The projected reliability is about average for this model. That's pretty good for a $1,499 elliptical, but you can definitely find some models that cost about the same and have a longer life expectancy. The quality of parts is average, as well. The parts don't really set it apart from the back in either a good or a bad way.
The noise level is about the same as most ellipticals. This is pretty standard regardless of price for most of the models in today's market. You can find a few models that sell for around the same price that are quieter, but most users don't find the noise during operation to be a problem.
The warranty is fine on the FreeMotion 750 Interactive. Parts and labor are covered for 2 years, parts are covered for 5 years, and the frame is covered for life. This is your run-of-the-mill warranty. At this price, it's nothing special, and it's nothing bad, either. You can definitely find better coverage while paying less. A better amount of coverage would have shown the confidence of the manufacturer, which would help to instill confidence in the consumer.
