Nearly Identical to the NordicTrack x11i Incline Trainer
The FreeMotion 2000 GS is an incline trainer from the same parent company that produces NordicTrack. This manufacturer, Icon Fitness, is the largest maker of fitness equipment in the world. Many of their machines use the same components across brands. In this particular instance, you will find nearly identical specs between the FreeMotion 2000GS and the NordicTrack x11i Incline Trainer (available for several hundred dollars less.)
An incline trainer is going to boost your workout effectiveness by allowing you to walk on inclines up to 40% and down to -6%. These low-impact workouts will let you burn more calories while you walk. With a 4.25 CHP motor, there is also no reason you couldn’t use this machine for some solid running workouts. You’ll also benefit from a wide range of fitness tracking capabilities.
This machine is extremely similar to the NordicTrack machine with two major exceptions. First, this machine has a lower-warranty motor. Second, it has a different cushioning system which we will leave up to your personal preference. The price on this machine is several hundred dollars more than the NordicTrack x11i Incline Trainer, so we would recommend you take advantage of the NordicTrack model over the FreeMotion model. The improved warranty on the NordicTrack model only adds to this value.
