FreeMotion 775 Interactive Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Great option if you can get it on sale for $1499. Beautiful display and abundant features.
One of the strongest options in the $1500 price range. Very good parts in key areas.
The FreeMotion 775 makes a lot of sense at $1,499. It has quality parts where they are needed, and it is packed with features. If you easily get bored on a treadmill, this one has all the bells and whistles you need to keep yourself entertained. There are a lot of good models in this price range, but you really can't go wrong with this one.
The walking area is a good size. The belt measures in at 20" x 60", which has become the standard size for walking belts found on most of today's treadmills. This should provide more than enough room for larger users to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
A good motor powers this machine. You can find some treadmills that sell for a few hundred dollars less that use a similar motor, but you'll have to spend at least $2,000 to get a model that has greater power producing capabilities than this one has. You can reach speeds of up to 12 mph, so even experienced runners should have no trouble challenging themselves.
A nice cushioning system comes on this model. SRS, or Surface Response Suspension, is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. There are models that cost several hundred dollars more than this one that have a much less forgiving or durable running surface.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is pretty good. There are very few treadmills in this price range that have a longer life expectancy than this one does. The quality of parts used is also nice.
The warranty on the FreeMotion 775 Interactive is great. Labor is covered for 2 years, parts are covered for 5 years, and the motor and frame are covered for life. This kind of coverage shows that FreeMotion is not afraid to stand behind this treadmill.
