Schwinn 430 Elliptical Machine
The Schwinn 430 elliptical machine is great for those who are looking to start working out at home and getting into shape or just becoming healthier. The smooth movement of the machine gives you a full workout.
One handy feature that this model includes is a USB port so that you can charge your tablet or mobile device. It also has an auxiliary port so you can play your iPod from the machine.
It comes with speakers that are clear and loud and the cord needed to plug your iPod in is included with the machine. If you get too hot during your exercise routine, the elliptical also comes with a fan to help cool you down.
The fan has three different settings so you can turn it up or down depending on how you feel. The machine also comes with a water bottle holder so you don’t have to pause your workout and leave the machine when you’re thirsty.
The elliptical allows you to enter personal information like your height, age and gender. What this does is to help the machine to determine an exercise plan that’s specifically tailored for your body.
The LCD display lets you know what your heart rate is and lets you see what type of workout you’re doing, like cardiovascular or fat burning. The display also keeps track of your exercise goals and the progress that you’re making.
This machine also has pre-programmed workouts like “walk in the park” which gives you the same workout you would have if you took an actual walk around a park. The pre-programmed workouts differ in pattern.
Parts of it are smooth walking like you’re on a flat surface while other parts represent climbing uphill. The stride on the elliptical is twenty inches and the footplates do have cushioning.
The footplates also have a manual ramp range of ten degrees and offer six different positions. The elliptical offers twenty levels of current resistance which allows you to push yourself as you grow more accustomed to working out on an exercise machine.
An internal high speed and weighted flywheel keeps the machine running quietly as you use it. At over 200 pounds in weight, the machine is very sturdy and has transport wheels that allow you to easily move the elliptical from one room to another.
The machine has moving handlebars so that you can work both your upper and lower body at the same time. It also has stationary handlebars if you want your main focus to be your lower body. The handlebars are angled so you can find a more comfortable position to hold them.
The maximum weight for the machine is three hundred pounds and it comes with a ten year warranty on the frame. The front is weighted, which gives you a lot of balance when you’re using the machine.
