Elliptical Review: NordicTrack FS10i FreeStride Trainer

With the rise of home gyms, finding the right exercise equipment that fits your personal taste can be a daunting task. For a machine that provides a great low-impact workout and has a well above-average feature selection, opt for the NordicTrack FS10i FreeStride Trainer

Let’s review this elliptical machine further, so you can have a better understanding of whether this is the right elliptical for you. 

The NordicTrack FS10i Adapts To You 

Forget the days of having to choose between three machines you love. As part of NordicTrack’s FreeStride Trainer Series, the FS10i combines a 3-in-1 technology that allows you to experience workouts of a stepper, elliptical, and treadmill all from one powerful machine. 

Depending on the intensity you want for your workouts, this elliptical steps up to the challenge in a big way. With its 32″ auto-adjustable stride, this FreeStride Trainer adapts to your individual pace length––creating a low-impact cardio workout that feels personally tailored to you. And once you’re ready to pump up the intensity of your workouts as you gain strength and endurance, crank up the incredible 0 – 10% incline-matching technology. Utilizing that incline feature will not only help to intensify your workouts, it can help you maximize your fat-burning phase. 

The impressive elliptical features don’t stop there! NordicTrack has incorporated Bluetooth® technology to this elliptical, so users can take full advantage of a plethora of things: completely immerse yourself into your workouts, jam out to your favorite music while you work out, avoid interrupting bystanders and waking sleeping children, listen to your favorite podcast without background noise, multitask with watching your new television series you’ve been wanting to finish as you workout, etc. There’s so much to love about this convenient feature, including the 10″ Smart HD Touchscreen and two 2” digitally amplified speakers that makes every workout much more clear and appealing.
