Product Summary

When you’re looking for a high-intensity but low-impact workout, ellipticals are a great option to save your joints from the inevitable wear and tear running brings. NordicTrack’s cardio legacy is respected for providing quality machines, solid warranties, and technology-driven programming.  The NordicTrack FreeStride FS10i trainer lives up to its brand’s reputation. 

Featuring a 32-inch adjustable stride length, up to 10% incline options, 24 levels of resistance, and a respectable 375-pound user weight capacity, the FS10i may be entry-level, but it’s anything but basic. This trainer is the ideal combination of an elliptical, stepper, and treadmill all in one compact, multipurpose unit. It’s sturdy, durable, and user-friendly.

This trainer comes equipped with iFIT providing access to thousands of live and on-demand workouts. The interactive HD screen is on the smaller side but it does enable an immersive and motivational workout experience. Not interested in a membership platform? Not a problem with the FS10i, as it houses 56 pre-programmed workouts to choose from. 

One drawback: The FS10i works off of a 20-pound inertia-enhanced flywheel, which falls on the lighter side—meaning, it may not provide enough resistance or stability for more conditioned athletes.
