Freemotion 545 Elliptical
- Nice little ramped elliptical for a smaller budget Review by Tim Harris
Price Value Quality
This Freemotion is very sturdy and a lot smaller than the other ellipticals I tried with the flywheel on the back of the petals. That was worth a couple brownie points with the wife...it is sitting in our living room until I clean out "my crap" from the garage.
I regretted not getting the delivery and setup. The instructions were okay but there were so many pages. And one of the steps you had to grease the inside bars of the handles and put on a series of washers in the right order. All without getting grease all over my carpet and trying to minimize the greese I ended up smearing all over the metal arms. I would love to see how they do it without making such a mess.
Also the machine says it's "IFIT COMPATIBLE" which means it does not come with the ifit connectivity when you buy it. You have to buy that little module separate. Would have been nice to know before buying that it was not included. I probably will end up only using manual programs like I do with my treadmill. (Posted on 11-11-29)
