A few downsides to the XTERRA Free Style 5.6e:
- Limited programs –only 7 preset and two custom – not much of an improvement from the cheaper models.

The Bottom Line
Sleek, straightforward and likely the best combination of affordability and performance in the Free Style line, the 5.6e is a winning machine for all fitness levels. Protect yourself from injury thanks to its top-notch ergonomics, and enjoy your own music with its included speakers and audio jack. While you won’t get a lot of impressive tricks and complicated software with a Free Style machine – sometimes that’s not a bad thing.
