Conclusions

The Freemotion XTr 90 is an A plus treadmill, if we’re talking about functionality. On the flipside, it’s recognition decreases due to a console that isn’t that aesthetic and a sound system that can’t raise the volume too much. This is a treadmill that we recommend, despite the entertainment flaws.

Pros

As far as functionality goes, this treadmill is above average. There are 34 default workouts that will lead you towards your fitness goals. These workouts are designed to meet the training needs of avid runners and walkers. And as far as we are concerned, they succeed in doing that.

And when you want to heighten your sights, just connect to your iFIT account/subscription and enjoy downloadable personalized workouts as well as helpful online tracking and analysis of your performance. (Note this module must be purchased separately).

And since we’re talking about workouts, you should know that the running belt offers reasonable space for comfortable and effective workouts.

As far as aesthetics are concerned, the graphical backlit display has nice lines and also offers easy-to-read feedback.

Main Attraction

The sound system is great. It delivers a high-quality clear sound. And it is also compatible with iPod. It is easy to use and it keeps you motivated during hard workouts.

This treadmill comes with adjustable cushioning and also one-touch adjustable incline and speed. It only takes one touch of a button to adjust speed and incline values, which has been a great help to us.

Drawbacks

There are also several flaws that you want to consider. First off, the warranty is not that appealing. Only 1 year for parts and labor is not something you may find advantageous for any treadmill. Secondly, the heart rate sensors were rather disappointing. It’s inconvenient to have so many workouts in hand, but not have efficient pulse sensors to check your heart rate.

Our advice is to check other treadmills before making your final decision.

    It says it’s IPOD compatible, but I can’t see the adapter for my iphone, like on Nordic Track. Where is it?

  4. admin says:

    @Donna – it should be a jack that goes into your iPad on the right upper side of the console.
