This is a great elliptical to rent if you are tight on space or money. The Freemotion 500 elliptical is a great machine with some fantastic engineering. Freemotion's parent company, Icon Fitness, has been allowed to use Precor's elliptical patent. Being able to use Precor's patents is a BIG DEAL. This allows them to make an elliptical that has the exact same motion as a Precor, which is the best motion in the industry. Not only does this elliptical feel great to use, it also has all the other important features that a person would want. First off, it has 16 levels of resistance, an adjustable incline ramp, hand held heart rate and a nice display with a great variety of programs. It also has other features that can be very important for some users. These include an iPod hookup, speakers, iFit and a great folding design to save space. Just like all of our other treadmills and ellipticals, we cover all service during the rental period with no extra cost to you.
