Brief Overview

The NordicTrack FreeStride Trainer FS10i is our 2022 4th place Best Buy Winner in the $2,000 - $2,999 price range and is chock full of quality components. It has a versatile design that holds the motions of a stepper, elliptical, and a treadmill all in one robust machine.

Overall Quality

Within the iFit platform, trainers control incline and resistance during training sessions on the NordicTrack FreeStride Trainer FS10i, however in other programs, consumers digitally change both on the console with easy to reach buttons. There is a 10” Smart touchscreen showing either performance data or immersive workouts using iFit membership amenities. It even offers speakers for motivational tune playing from a favorite music list. Magnetic resistance keeps trekking quiet to not disturb other household members while a 20 lb. flywheel delivers smooth performance through 24 resistance levels providing intensified workouts for a variety of fitness level enthusiasts. A 32” adjustable stride keeps users literally on their toes as an individual’s movements shape the workout as the machine follows the user’s motions. The FS10i also contains 35 built in programs targeting stubborn fat and building cardio along with more tailored workouts based on individual fitness levels. Another fine feature targeting a different set of muscles is the 10% incline which keeps the FS10i a winner on our list!
