FreeMotion 775 Interactive Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Great option if you can get it on sale for $1499. Beautiful display and abundant features.
What we can say in favor of the Treadmill...
Large-frame motor that powers a smooth drive
This is a good motor packing more punch than many cheaper motors with the same 3.5 HP stickers upfront, and if you want something superior to it you have to cross $2,000. The important point is that the motor gels effectively with the drive system producing a quieter, smoother performance and top speeds touching 12 mph which is just right for power runners to get their act together. This horse can carry a 350 pound workload without breaking gallop.
The belt is a good fit for extreme runners
An expansive 20" x 60" walking belt offers a comfortable base for power running. There's sufficient room for big guys to jog and run confidently without breaking or altering their stride. If a larger belt is mismatched to a weak motor it would be disastrous, but in the Freemotion 775 the motor and belt combine efficiently to give a smooth performance.
Good surface response and suspension cushioning
Cushioning does a good job of reducing the impact on joints and back. This level of comfort is rarely seen even in pricier models. So you are protecting health and adding value for money.
Good number of programs and varying track inclines for strenuous workouts
The -3% to 15% decline/incline range is enough to vary the intensity of running and infuse the right degree of challenge into healthier workouts. Additionally, there are no less than 30 preset workout programs that combine to impact muscle tone positively and help you shed more calories.
Warranty is best in its category
The warranty on the Freemotion 775 Interactive takes a huge load off your shoulders. Labor enjoys 2 years, parts are covered for 5 years, and the motor and frame have lifetime coverage. This is extreme commitment on the part of Freemotion to stand by its product through the good and the bad, and users can't ask for more.
Space saving treadmill (folding)
With dimensions of 80" L x 36" W x 73.5" H you can breathe easier that this is a folding marvel and although it does not disappear into a corner, you can achieve some space saving by folding it up.
What makes you pause in evaluating your buy...
Dull service record a cause for worry
Icon's abysmal track record in servicing is a cause for worry but not extreme anxiety because the machine quality is very strong and so is the warranty coverage, so you could possibly become more tolerant of the possibility of unanswered calls and delayed parts and service.
The final word
The Freemotion 775 may be a perfect option at the $1,500 price point simply because it is a great combination of quality components and excellent features presented in an aesthetically pleasing design that entertains you as you pursue maximum fitness. The machine has quality parts and is very reliable and is built to last the long haul.One of the strongest options in the $1500 price range. Very good parts in key areas.
