How long will the NordicTrack Free Stride Trainer FS14I last?

Constructed from solid steel and worthy of commercial settings, the NordicTrack FreeStride Trainer FS14i is a beast of a machine weighing around 250 lbs. and holding users up to a massive 375 lb. capacity. It is best suited for moderate to heavy use and will last several years with proper care and maintenance. The FS14i is covered by a rather short 10-year frame warranty with 2 years on parts and 1 year on labor but that should only be expected when it is constructed of so many moving parts.

Brief Overview

The NordicTrack FreeStride Trainer FS14i is our 2022 1st place Best Buy Award Winner in the $3,000 - $3,999 price range and contains a center drive system that offers a low impact, total body workout on a 3-in-1 fitness machine encompassing a stepper, elliptical, and a treadmill. It has a revolutionary design with a seriously long 32” adjustable stride that is automated through the console or trainer-led sessions found on the iFit platform. A 30-day free membership to iFit is included with the purchase of the FS14i.
