The great thing I mentioned is the incline feature, because you can set it on level 5 and it seems to balance the work of your legs so that no one muscle group burns more than any other. If the incline is at zero, your hamstrings start to burn fast like you’re lifting weights, and if you set the incline all the way up to ten, your quads burn in the same way. Since my goal is not to be lifting weights and instead getting cardio, I like the middle setting which seems to balance them and you don’t get as much burn. In that respect it’s like jogging. But, the motion is not exactly like jogging, I’d say it’s close though. You can get used to the motion. You’d also think the extended range helps to engage more muscle groups, but I don’t really know.
The bad thing about the Freestrider is the hand grips are so large they seem to be designed to irritate you on purpose. I literally can’t get my thumb and index finger to touch when I’m holding on, and I have average-size man hands. There are also no ridges there or anything else to help your grip, and the shape of the handles are not even round, so with sweaty hands I feel like I can’t hang on unless I place my hands awkwardly on top as if I’m about to pull down a lever. It’s annoying every single time I get on. It’s almost enough to make me not want the machine. The cheapest model (FS5i) looks like it has better, smaller handles, but that model doesn’t come with incline options (not even manual incline).
To sum up: the hand grips are terrible on the middle and top tier models, but there’s no denying the workout; you’ll have to have a towel with you for the sweat, even if you’re only on it for 20 minutes. The incline is a must have feature, so I would not buy the cheapest model (FS5i), otherwise you’ll be missing the one thing that is truly great about this machine. If you know of a different machine that has the incline feature and great hand grips, you might want to consider that instead. Myself, I might try to order different grips, then I’d have an awesome machine.
I've called the Nordictrack company in December-2017, described the problem and they've sent an incline motor with "do-it-yourself" video. It didn't make much sense, but what do I know. OK, I've got the incline motor 3 weeks later and successfully replaced it. By the way that was not easy. I'm familiar how to use tools, but that was difficult. And that did not help. The problem stays the same, the machine beeps, the resistance goes all the way to max level and I still cannot use it. I've called them again. Three weeks later I've received a new console monitor and a link to do-it-yourself video to replace it. I've replaced the monitor and there was no change. I made another call, spoke to the call center people and they sent me "more parts" and told me that now I can invite a technician. The parts travel 3 weeks, and, as they arrive, I've learned that the tech is also booked solid for the next three weeks. I've got the parts and booked the Tech. She came in and spent two hours with the machine, replaced another console monitor (I wonder why?) and another part, left saying "well, it didn't fix it, but maybe we need to change a wire". This time she orders the part. The part comes 3 weeks later, she is booked solid for the next 3 weeks. The whole part that the technician is booked solidly for three months in the future does not make me confident in the machine. I've spoken to people at the call center, they refuse to hurry up the repair, they refuse to issue refund and haul away this machine. When I asked what their plan is if they cannot fix the machine on the fourth attempt they said, well, “we will order more parts and send you a technician”. When I said I don’t want this machine anymore, because they cannot fix it and I’m afraid it will break again and I will be stuck with a loss of 2000 dollars and a machine they suggested to talk to Amazon people about returning the thing. The problem is: amazon had nothing to do with it, because the machine was bought directly from Nordictrack. The best offer they gave me was: We will reset your warranty, when the machine gets fixed. The question is will it ever get fixed?
