FreeMotion Incline Trainer i11.9 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Really high MSRP has no relation to what these sell for. We have found them online for much less.
Great workout but a great big price tag to go along with it. If you are interested in this one, the i7.9 model should be enough.
The FreeMotion Incline Trainer i11.9 is a nice treadmill, but for $7,999, it comes with a hefty price tag. The i7.9 offers similar quality and sells for $1,500 less. Only with a major discount, which may not be that hard to find, should you consider purchasing this model.
The walking area is quite large. The belt measures in at 22" x 60", which is a solid 2" wider than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that's found on most of today's treadmills. Users with a wider stance that are used to the standard size walking belt may find this one to be more accommodating.
An excellent motor powers this machine. You're not going to find a single treadmill that has better power producing capabilities than this one has regardless of the price. You'll be able to reach speeds of up to 12 mph, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
An unimpressive cushioning system comes on this machine. A built-in isolator cushioning system is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. It doesn't have an extreme lack of durability or impact reduction, but you can easily find better on models that cost $3,000 less than this one does.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this model isn't very good. When you're paying almost $8,000 you expect a very durable machine, but there are several models that sell for half the price of this one that have a longer life expectancy. The quality of parts also disappoints when the high price is taken into account.
The warranty on the FreeMotion Incline Trainer i11.9 isn't as good as we would expect. The touch screen and TV are covered for 1 year, parts and labor are covered for 3 years, and the frame is covered for life. Most of FreeMotion's less expensive treadmills come with a better warranty.
