NordicTrack FreeStrider 35 S Review
by Fred Waters
Our AssessmentFred Waters, fitness equipment expert and former vice president of Smooth Fitness, gives a comprehensive overview of the FreeStrider 35S and its features. He finds the stair climber's hybrid motion to be "intriguing." He does not usually cover stair climbers but makes an exception, as the 35S is half elliptical. In the end, impressed with the product, he recommends it for those who are ready for a serious workout.

The Sunny Health & Fitness Twist Stepper (*Est. $65) received the most customer feedback with more than 120 reviews.
