Is this what you need when you buy Teeter FreeStep Recumbent Cross Trainer and Elliptical?
Free yourself from the pain normal exercise can cause The Teeter FreeStep brings a new level of ease to exercising in your own home with a stress-free, zero impact cardio and strength workout. FreeStep takes the load off your back and joints, elevating comfort beyond traditional ellipticals, treadmills, and steppers while delivering exceptional calorie-burning results. Its patented stride technology is engineered to protect the knees, with a natural stepping stride that follows a smooth, linear path.
Using dual power motion, the FreeStep distributes muscle exertion throughout the body. Shift from working hard with your legs to focusing on your arms, so you can exercise longer without getting tired. That means a more comfortable total body workout that feels easier, while burning more calories for faster results.
Our patented technology, licensed from a maker of high-end commercial physiotherapy steppers used by PTs, offers the same gentle, effective motion but in an affordable home-use solution. The FreeStep is the ONLY home-use machine with this unique linkage system.
Simply put, the FreeStep offers a superior low-stress, low-impact cardio and resistance workout at a fraction of the cost of the comparable commercial equipment.
The unique motion of the FreeStep sets it apart from other recumbent options which can actually be hard on your body for two reasons 1 a cycle motion can cause knee shear ouch and 2 the motion can add sway to the hips, destabilizing the hips and lower back.
*In a Consumer Perception Survey, participants used the FreeStep twice for 7 10 minutes each session. 93-97 of participants concluded the FreeStep delivers gentle, low impact exercise for the knees, hips and back, and is less stressful on the knees and back than other cardio options.
Incorporating both upper and lower body distributes muscle exertion to avoid muscle burn out. Your workout feels easier, while burning more calories.
The linkage system between the upper and lower body is perfectly synchronized for smooth comfortable motion. No drag or popping motion found in typical seated full body equipment.
The FreeStep gives you a full-body workout that surpasses the benefits and calorie-burn of regular gym equipment so you can save time with better results, AND exercise at your convenience in your own home, day or night.
At the same level of effort, the FreeStep burns 17.4 more calories per hour* you ll burn the same amount of calories in 5.8 workouts as 7 workouts on a recumbent bike
*Colorado Center for Health Sport Science found a significant difference in energy expenditure comparing the FreeStep with a recumbent bike.
Take the load off your back, knees and hips and joints, elevating comfort beyond traditional ellipticals, treadmills, and steppers while delivering exceptional calorie burning results. The unique stepping motion prevents the knees from traveling over the toes and stabilizes the back and hips for an exceptionally stress-free workout.
The push-pull mechanics of the FreeStep promote a total body workout to your upper and lower body simultaneously, building more lean muscle so you continue fat burning long after your workout. Go longer by changing up your motion mid-stride, easily shifting from working hard with your legs to focusing on your arms to avoid workout fatigue.
Modify the workout by isolating your legs with the stepping motion that mimics a leg press, strengthening your glutes, quads and hamstrings. Target your upper body by re positioning the handles to isolate biceps or triceps while engaging chest and back muscles for added intensity and definition.
Reclining Seat Select from 3 recline settings to position your body for optimal posture, muscle engagement and comfort.
Variable Magnetic Resistance Adjust from lower to higher intensity with one simple dial, accommodating a range of ability levels.
Seat Height Easily set height with the spring-loaded adjustment knob to achieve a gentle, neutral stride motion.

Customer reviewsNot worth 799
The Teeter Freestep is a very AVERAGE home ex piece of equipment. It will get the job done, but very light wt materials and not smooth elliptical pedal motion...maybe it will improve as more broke in I would limit the max wt to 250Lbs. I am a PT w 35yrs of experience. I am a very fit 61yo, 6 ,2 215lb male. Also, I am a VERY Frugal Budget oriented ex equip buyer for my private practice clinic. I buy most of my ex equip off Amazon. Some pieces cost 2-4000 in order to accommodate larger pts and complex rehab pt s etc.. But, for my normal Gym worker outers I often try less expensive ex machines and many times they do quite well. However, This one looks far better in marketing video then actual in person. I would pay NO MORE then 350 for this machine. For the same apx 800 or less you d be better served getting the ProForm 16.0 MME Stepper, or the ProForm Cardio HIIT. For those whom can only sit, get one of the Stamina stationary bikes for apx 250- 350 and add an ergometer upper extremity pedaling for about 150 more and save a few hundred dollars.
