The Schwinn 420 elliptical trainer is a relatively new type of product. When I was young, the most common indoor exercise equipment was the treadmill which made a lot of noise no matter how much you lubricated it. Elliptical trainers are today sought after by many people simply because they offer a complete cardiovascular workout by nearly toning every muscle in the body and yet at the same time, induce less levels of fatigue than a treadmill.
Schwinn 420 Elliptical was the best choice for me:
All these advantages were enough reasons for me to consider purchasing an elliptical. I visited various gyms, my friends and many of my relatives to see what type of elliptical they have. I then did some research on the Internet and finally decided that the Schwinn 420 elliptical might be good choice. It was delivered to our doorstep in a matter of few days and the delivery man also helped me to move it inside the house. Mind you, this is a very heavy piece of equipment. Assembling the entire contraption was relatively straightforward with no troubles worth mentioning.
I then used a WD40 lubricant on the moving parts and then did a trial run. I was truly impressed by the Schwinn 420 elliptical quietness. No matter how much I exercised, there were no squeaking sounds from anywhere. At the same time the base of the machine felt stable and had almost no wobbling. I however, am not impressed with the console display that this machine has. It is hard to read especially for an old person like me. To top it all it doesn’t even have a backlight. The stride length of this thing however was well suited to me. While exercising on the Schwinn 420 elliptical, I never felt that my back or hands were being stretched. Another niggle that this machine has is that you can set only one custom preset, the rest of the people will have to access this machine in “guest mode” and enter the parameters all over again.
Why you should buy Schwinn 420 Elliptical:
If you want to enjoy a good cardiovascular workout on an elliptical that is not overpriced, the Schwinn 420 elliptical is the right piece of equipment for you. Working on it feels great, the preset programs are good enough for me and the best part of it all is that it has not given me any more troubles whatsoever. I would definitely recommend the Schwinn 420 elliptical to everybody and give it a 4.5 on a scale of 5.
