Investing more in a treadmill guarantees certain performance levels. However, it also means that you can expect various creature comforts. FreeMotion 890 is a great example of what these advanced features look like. It is among the most capable treadmills you can get for $2000 or less right now, and for a good reason. Lets take a closer look and see just what you can expect to see from FreeMotion 890.
From the moment you first lay your eyes on FreeMotion 890, you will notice how bulky it is. That bulk is understandable once you count in all the features, but it does affect the aesthetics of the treadmill. The frame is really thick. FreeMotion used plenty of material in the frame, thus eliminating any chance of movement when you run. When you think about it, it’s quite understandable considering how large the control module is. Running deck is a bit elevated compared to other treadmills out there, but there is a good reason for that. If you are wondering what kind of belt comes with FreeMotion 890, it is a 60″ by 22″ commercial grade belt. Generally speaking, it is one of the more comfortable options out there. What really puts the cherry on top is the fact that you can fold this massive treadmill and really reduce its footprint.
Features are undoubtedly where FreeMotion 890 comes to shine and that mostly goes for the secondary features. Core components are pretty interesting as well. We have a 4.25 hp motor that can push you up to 12 mph without breaking a sweat, 15% of incline but also 3% decline. This is why the treadmill is sitting a bit higher than usual. The control module is probably what draws most to this treadmill. It is a large unit that features not one but two displays. You have a 10″ touchscreen within the console itself while there is a 15″ HD TV sitting right above it. One is your main control interface for the features while the other is there for entertainment purposes. FreeMotion 890 comes with 40 presets and a number of fitness apps including iFit. Also worth mentioning is that you also have a built in fan that will cool you as you run.
What FreeMotion 890 is really about can be labeled as comfortable fitness. The treadmill is obviously more than capable of meeting the performance demands, even exceeding them to a degree. On the other hand, it brings a whole suite of features whose only purpose is to offer plenty of comfort during your workout. As such, it is by far one of the best choices out there at the moment. The only real question is whether or not you want or need all of those features. On top of that, it’s a bulky model which should also be considered when deciding.
