Freemotion Treadmill Reviews – A Look at the Models
At any given time Freemotion offers a handful of treadmills to choose from, including traditional and incline trainer models.
Currently there are four traditional models to choose from, starting with the base t8.9b and moving up to the t22.9.
Hardly a base model given all of the features it offers, the t8.9b has a large 60″ x 21.5″ running belt, speeds up to 12 mph, a strong 4.0 HP AC commercial motor, 18 on board workouts and incline up to 15%.
Like most of the other machines, it has a basic LED display, but it gives you all of the workout info you need to keep track of what you’re doing.
It also comes with the popular iFit program, which you can access via your phone or tablet and tap into an endless array of trainer led workouts on and off the machine, on demand or live.
With the mid-level t10.9 you get more advanced Reflex cushioning to reduce joint strain as well as a stronger 5.0 HP AC motor.
This model adds Precision Quick Speed to the mix, allowing you to make fast easy speed adjustments without the usual lag that can sometimes throw off your training, especially if you do intervals that require constant adjustments.
This Freemotion treadmill gives you everything the t10.9 model offers, and adds a ton more built in programs and fitness tests, on top of what you already get via iFit.
There’s also a USB port and a number of other added touches.
If money is no object there’s the top of the line t22.9b, which ups the ante with a large 22″ HD touch display, similar to what you find on NordicTrack’s high end models.
It also ups the speed to 15 mph and adds wireless heart rate monitoring to the mix.
For those who want to ramp up their training (literally!), Freemotion offers two incline trainers, the i10.9b and the i22.9.
Very similar to the t10.9b, the i10.9b gives you decline capability down to 3% and doubles the incline capability to 30%.It’s also much heavier at over 700 lbs, so once you have the machine in place it’s not going anywhere for a while.
Also similar to the t22.9 except for the same decline and incline capability.
With iFit, built into all of the treadmills, you can view your workouts on your phone or tablet, right on the treadmill itself via the touch screen on the upper end models.
All in all, these are awesome, commercial grade treadmills for those who want the very best for their home.
