Freemotion 850 Treadmill

The Freemotion 850 Treadmill is more than just any other treadmill with its basic motor, deck and console. It’s loaded with features that allow the machine to be custom tailored to you and your fitness goals. iFit Technology presents the world at your feet by allowing you to create maps anywhere in the world and automatically adjust the 850’s incline and decline to match the terrain. Workout tracking, community competitions and training with Jillian Michaels complete an incredible interactive fitness experience. Incline and decline training allows you to intensify your workout and engage different muscle groups for a well-balanced workout. SRS Surface Response Suspension reduces the impact of each step for incredible joint protection. A powerful 3.5 CHP motor delivers smooth, quiet and reliable performance. The path to fitness takes work, but the 850 treadmill is determined to make it as easy as possible for you.

Overall Quality

Maintain a healthy lifestyle by staying active with the Freemotion 850 Treadmill. The 3.5 CHP EnduraDrive™ motor provides a smooth, quiet operation due to preventative engineering and offers speeds up to 12 MPH. A quiet, intense workout is possible with 2.5″ precision-machined rear roller which extends the life of the belt by reducing heat and wear. The belt itself is 22” x 62” which is great for those with longer strides and an incline/decline feature perfect for intensifying any workout. The Freemotion 850 has 32 built in workouts that automatically control your incline, decline, and speed to keep concentration fully on exercising. The handlebars contain built-in sensors to track your heart rate for goal-specific training and there is a built-in fan with 2 speed settings to help control body temperature. There is an acoustic sound system that allows the use of an iPod or MP3 player for your listening pleasure. We find where Freemotion decided to stop investing in the model with the 7” display screen. It is rather disappointing with all the technology available on this machine to find the display screen to be so tiny.

Our other reviews have said that the Freemotion 850 is one of the best values for the $1,200-dollar range. We have liked the big belt and motor that Freemotion uses and have used these structural features to overlook the other cut corners. Though we have noticed the frame’s quality has been stunted in order to meet the price range, we have known these treadmills to last for several years. We have said that this is a quality machine on a budget.


We often discuss machines that fall somewhere on a style and substance scale. Unlike most of Icon brand models, the Freemotion 850 leans more towards the substance side. While we like the fact that Freemotion created a more durable treadmill at a decent price, we would recommend looking into their next model. For only a little more money, you can have a treadmill that strikes a balance between both style and substance. Yet, overall, the 850 is a decent treadmill. This model has a sturdy build and will suit a casual jogger well.
