List of Ingredients
- Fitness equipment.
The official website for the Freestyler is packed with pictures of people using the functional fitness board. There are several exercise bands included with your purchase. The bands are used to connect your arms and legs to the fitness board providing tension or resistance. While attached to the board you perform a series of exercises as a means of strength training and, if exercises are performed quickly enough to raise heart rate, aerobic exercise.
The fitness board is placed flat on the floor, so weight limit is not an issue with the Freestyler, but bending to connect and disconnect the bands from ankle straps could be difficult for some users. Nowhere on the site is the size of the ankle bands mentioned. We double checked the accessories page and though extra sets of ankle wraps are listed for sale the product description does not reveal the size. Some dieters may have trouble fitting the ankle cuffs.
The Freestyler retails for $199 or four payments of $49.75, as of March 2013. There is a 30-day money-back guarantee, but it requires the buyer jump through hoops to receive a refund and they may be charged a portion of the purchase price even if they choose to return the Freestyler. Buyers have 30 days from the date on the invoice, not the date of receipt, to request a refund. If the refund request is approved, the product must be sent back within five days of approval. Trial offers are not subject to refund of previously charged payments and no refunds will be approved for original or return shipping.

The Freestyler looks more like a gimmick than a trustworthy piece of fitness equipment. We see how this product could benefit some dieters, but there are limitations for dieters with lower back pain as the bands must be attached at the ankle. Taking a walk or completing body resistance exercises could be just as beneficial and dieters don’t have to pay a dime for the exercise.
