QUICK REVIEW

Pros The FreeMotion 570 is an interactive elliptical machine with a wealth of features. Featuring a 10-inch full-color touch screen and web browser, you can stay entertained while you work out. Combine that with an iFit membership (sold separately), and you will get fit alongside celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels through virtual terrain via Google Maps.
Cons There have been reports that the FreeMotion 570 is a bit on the wobbly side – certainly for the reputation it claims to have it should have a more solid foundation. Defects in the handlebars and computer glitches have also been made known since the debut of the 570. Finally, the customer service for all FreeMotion models tends to be mediocre at best.
Summary The FreeMotion 570 aims to be a top-notch elliptical machine, and definitely fits the bill when it comes to multiple features and plenty of user interaction. It is also very comfortable with a cooling fan, Web browser, ability to watch shows and train in full color iFit. This interactive elliptical will definitely get you motivated with plenty of bells and whistles, but if you’re looking for a machine that delivers on quality, you might want to look elsewhere. Still, many swear by FreeMotion and their ability to yield top results. It does definitely help that this unit comes with a lifetime frame warranty and five years on parts.

FreeMotion 570 Interactive Elliptical Detailed Overview

The FreeMotion 570 interactive elliptical is jam packed with features. Its 30lb flywheel gives a smooth and quiet ride, although the frame itself is not the strongest out there. An adjustable stride length as well as incline gives the user a personalized experience that many love. Best of all, as this is inspired by a commercially-designed elliptical, multiple members of your household can use it daily without it breaking down for quite some time. The FreeMotion 570 also includes a great sound system with built in speakers, movable arms for an upper body workout focus, and easy step resistance controls. You will be quite pleased with the physical results you start to see when using the 570 daily.
