Easier on Your Joints – FreeStep takes the load off your back and joints, elevating comfort beyond traditional ellipticals, treadmills, and steppers while delivering exceptional calorie-burning results.

Recumbent Training – The comfortable and naturally-reclined seated position reduces body fatigue and eliminates the stress on your joints and back while still delivering a full fat-burning cardio workout.

Patented Stride Technology – The unique striding motion follows a smooth linear path – preventing the knees from traveling over the toes and stabilizing the back and hips – to eliminate the stress on your knees, hips, and back while still engaging the legs and glutes for maximum comfort and calorie burn.

Dual Power Motion – The FreeStep utilizes push-pull mechanics to build and define all major muscles groups. The stepping motion mimics a leg press, targeting your glutes, quadriceps and hamstrings for a toned lower body, while the adjustable handles isolate your biceps or triceps and engage chest and back muscles for upper body definition.

Muscle Targeting – Modify the workout by isolating your legs or arms to add intensity or repositioning the handles to target biceps, triceps and back muscles.

Variable Magnetic Resistance – The easy-to-use system adjusts from lower to higher intensity with one simple dial, accommodating a range of ability levels.

Adjustable Seat – The cushioned seat reclines and adjusts to fit your height so you can position your body for optimal posture, muscle engagement and comfort.

Digital Tracking – Monitor your time, distance, speed and calorie-burn with the easy-to-read battery-powered console that allows placement anywhere in your home without concern for cords or outlets.

Smart Design – A cleverly designed tablet holder and water bottle holder keep everything you need for your workout within reach.

Small Footprint – At just 52.5 in x 38 in, the FreeStep is a low-profile addition to your home, complete with wheels for convenient transport.

Whisper Quiet – Conveniently exercise indoors at any time of day or night without creating a noisy environment or straining to hear the TV during use.

Cost-Effective – Similar to commercial-grade equipment used in PT clinics, the FreeStep is a more affordable option that delivers those benefits in the comfort of your own home, maximizing your time and value.

Commercial-Grade Engineering – A virtually friction-free linkage system (tested to over 2.3 million cycles) means long-lasting performance in your own home.

35+ Years in Fitness – Leveraging nearly four decades of experience specializing in superior-quality back pain relief products, the Teeter FreeStep delivers a comfortable, effective “Back Wise and Body Healthy” workout for any age or fitness level.

The Journey to Recovery

Stage 3: Muscle stability and strength

Adding basic strength and stability training to your daily routine – especially core strengthening – is key to the health of your spine.

FreeStep Elliptical Recumbent Cross Trainer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 412.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Health Maintenance Product I recently purchased a FreeStep, the quality and engineering is exceptional. I purchased this primarily for my wife, who just finished 18 months of chemo-therapy, during which she was always tired, weak and her balance was affected. I received this FreeStep a few days ago. Putting it together was easy. My wife began using the FreeStep immediately. Just after 3 days my wife says her legs feel stronger, her arms and shoulder muscles feel better. Also the FreeStep does not have a negative impact on her cardio or respiratory systems. She really believes that with continued use, she'll continue to get stronger and feel better.. THANK-YOU.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this machine As a person who is hemiplegic due to stroke and short (5ft) the seat is low enough to get up on and use comfortably. Bought another brand and returned immediately. The FreeStep is far superior in quality, assembly and ease of use it is very sturdy, comfortable, smooth and quiet. I expect to use it for years to come. Even almost have husband converted from his Elliptical machine but his one complaint is does not monitor cardio. After speaking with Teeter today they expect to have something later in year to do do this. As a true believer in this product already had friend purchase one. No words for how pleased I am with it. Thank you, Mr. Stepper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More then I expected This Free Step by Teeter is even better then I could of hoped for. It was fairly easy to assemble. The foot print is small so that made it easy to keep it in same place although it is not hard to move if needed. This machine is perfect for my arthritic knees and it gives you a choice of how easy or difficult you want to exercise. I would say anyone still undecided if they should purchase this to just do it! you wont be disappointed. I showed my physical therapist the details of this machine and she was quite impressed! And you cannot beat the price. I had an inversion table by Teeter so I know they make quality products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality that’s affordable! This is just as rugged and reliable as commercial models, which cost three to four thousand dollars! I showed this to a friend who is a professional, physical therapist, and he was amazed at the durable construction, small footprint, smooth operation, excellent warranty, and the remarkable price! Unlike other exercise equipment, this provides a full body workout for anyone from a beginner to a champion. At 68 years old, I wasn’t in prime condition. Now, I feel so much better, and actually look forward to the time I spend on the Teeter Freestep Elliptical Cross Trainer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet & smooth I own the teeter inversion table which is great so I added the freestep for a whole body workout. The freestep is very quiet and smooth which makes working out more enjoyable, it also makes my back and knees feel better (no pain due to exercising) since your in a sitting position. The installation wasn't hard at all took my time about 2.5 hours read everything twice it makes it easier. I ride twice a day for 30-45 minutes makes me feel better all day and sleep better at night. Hint: listen to your favorite music while riding makes it go by really fast and surprising how far you ride. A heart monitor and trip riding videos to watch while riding would make it really exciting. Thanks Teeter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Finally Found The Best! I have had recumbent/elliptical machines (no names mentioned} in the past, and after using them a few times, they became an expensive "decoration". TTeeter's Elliptical Recumbent Cross Trainer is a GAME CHANGER! There is something totally unique, completely different than machines from the past. The best way to describe it, It's ADDICTIVE. I get on mine every single day, and it feels brand new every time. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this machine! I am already seeing a difference in significant weight loss along with toning, especially in my lower body. I just started to work more on the upper body. I am looking forward to results! You will not regret buying this fantastic machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cardiac patients I had some heart problems and was hospitalized five months ago for ten days. When released I entered cardiac rehabilitation for twelve weeks and started using a recumbent cross step type device. I found this the most effective, enjoyable device that I have used. Buying a similar model was out of the question due to cost. Then I found Teeter. The price was reasonable, shipping was free and assembly was easy. I have established a routine that is fun and has provided health benefits plus limits stress on my two artificial knees and hip. My doctors are pleased, I’ve managed to loose thirty-five pounds and I feel great. Thank you Teeter.

I actually feel refreshed and stress free and like it . I keep it in my bedroom and don't have to go out in the weather....I posted about this amazing machine on my F.B and 3 of my friends have ordered one....Seriously the best EVER money I've ever spent

Can this be delivered assembled and delivered into the house?

Asked by: Nanyou
The Teeter FreeStep arrives in a large box – that’s because main component (the base with the internal fly wheel) arrives mostly pre-assembled! All tools required for assembly are included. Total time should take about 30 minutes with 2 people. Follow along with the printed Assembly Instructions, stream the Getting Started Video on our website and/or use the free BILT app with interactive 3-D assembly instructions (just search ‘FreeStep’ in the app)! If you require assistance, you can easily hire a local pro through Amazon Home Services! Rates vary by location, but you can get an estimate by searching for "Elliptical Assembly". All you need is a (free) Amazon account to get started.

Wondering how comfortable the seat would be for a large derriere?

Asked by: Fluffy
While the FreeStep LT-1 has a comfortable seat, I would recommend checking out the new FreeStep LT-3, which features a ComfortSelect™ Seat that is 27% thicker and 12% bigger overall for more cushion and max comfort.
