FreeMotion 795 Interactive Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
One of the most impressive $2000 machines we have ever seen. Packed with features and high quality components in key areas make for an excellent experience.
Someone who trains for marathons should be very interested in this machine. It isn't in the same quality category as some higher end True and Lifefitness units but it beats the pants off the competition at $2k.
The Freemotion 795 Interactive is one of the best treadmills you can get for $1,999. We even feel comfortable recommending this as a model that would be helpful during marathon training. An abundance of features combined with good quality help to set this machine apart from the pack. It was the 3rd runner up for our Best Buy award in the $1,500-1,999 price range.
The walking area is quite large. At 20" x 62", this non-stretch, 2-ply belt is a good 2" longer than your standard treadmill would have. 60" is already long enough to fit most users, so you can be pretty sure that users with large strides will still feel comfortable running on this model.
The motor is really good. There aren't too many treadmills that have more power producing capabilities than this machine, until you start paying more than $3,500. It can reach speeds of 15 mph, which is enough to challenge almost any runner, excluding Olympic athletes.
The cushioning system is impressive. A Quadflex Cushion Deck with Precision Calibration is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. This running surface is forgiving enough to compete with models that cost $1,000 more.
The projected reliability is good, as well. You can find some models that are cheaper that have a similar life expectancy, but you'd have to pay $4,000 or more to find a treadmill that we expect to last significantly longer. The quality of parts is equally opulent. Without paying a lot more, you're not going to find much better.
The noise levels are kept low, which isn't uncommon in this price range. If you're worried about noise levels during operation, this one should be quiet enough for you to appreciate.
The warranty is good on the Freemotion 795 Interactive. Labor is covered for 2 years, parts are covered for 5 years, and the frame and motor are covered for life. Several treadmills that cost less than this one have similar warranties, but it's not common to find better coverage without spending an extra $1,000.
