The FreeMotion Terrain elliptical trainer has the patented Dynamic Muscle Activation™ 3.0 Ramp with a -10% decline and a 20% incline to help you engage different muscle groups for a more effective workout.
The FreeMotion Terrain elliptical trainer has a 7" backlit display showing your feedback for time, speed, distance, pulse, calories burned, incline and decline. There are two dozen toning workouts designed by a Certified Personal Trainer to help you get fast results.
The full list of specs includes:
The FreeMotion Terrain elliptical trainer features SMR™ Silent Magnetic Resistance technology for a smooth workout, plus 20 1-Touch resistance levels, and a -10 degree power decline, and up to 20-degree incline to target all the major muscle groups. As you increase the incline, the stride length automatically increases from 20" to 22".
Programming can be extended beyond the 24 presets by using the iFit Live™ technology so you can use workouts powered by Google Maps™, training with Jillian Michaels, and get other customized fitness programs. (Note: this feature requires an additional purchase of the iFit Live wireless module plus an annual subscription to ifit.com.)
Other features on the trainer include in-handle ramp and resistance controls, cushioned pedals, CardioGrip heart rate monitoring sensors in the handlebars, a wireless chest strap (included), and a compatible music port for an iPod, with built-in speakers on the console.
The FreeMotion Terrain elliptical trainer by ICON Fitness is the same machine as the NordicTrack Elite 12.0 priced for $1,299, which means you should avoid buying the FreeMotion which is currently priced at over $1,600! These are okay machines (except for the price variance) but the problem tends to be the company.
According to many customer reviews, ICON Fitness, the parent company to both NordicTrack and FreeMotion, has terrible customer service for its many brands and if you have a problem with your elliptical, it could take weeks or even months to get the issue resolved.
At this price, you can easily find an outstanding machine built by Smooth, Sole, or Livestrong which will be backed by a company that cares about its customers.
