    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.1 out of 5★ by 202reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Very Pleased with Purchase/Product Quality From experience with bicycles and tricycles Schwinn is a great company. I saw this elliptical, I knew it would be reliable, durable and of good quality.Very easy to put together. I recommend having a strong arm around to assist incase needed which I did need. One of the metal pieces was bent and one of the holes was off a bit so he was able to fix all that for me with a little elbow grease!The machine is very sturdy, no shaking at all. It's very quiet too.The 18 inch stride is highly recommended. This is why I purchased this elliptical. It was the cheapest elliptical from a reputable company with an 18in stride.The fan harldy blows which is not important to me but thought I'd note it.I wish it had an option to put in your weight so it could better estimate how many calories are being burned. I have done one of the easier programs since I am just starting out. Today I did two 3 minute sessions and one 5 minute session today. I'm about 50 pounds overweight so it's going to take me a while to build up.I will post a follow up in about a month to let everyone know how the machine is holding up! 12/29/2010
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great so far! Upon months of searching for a budget elliptical that will not fall apart on me in a few months, it came down to the Schwinn brand. Due to my budget and space limitations, it came down to the A40.It is a nice compact size. It looks and feels solid so far. Setup was not too bad.. I helped a little while my husband did mostly all of it and I didn't hear much complaining.It feels good, resistance seems challenging for the mildly out of shape and can increase as I get more into shape. I have it on a carpeted floor with a gym equipment mat between the carpet and the machine. It is a little wobbly because of this reason. If it were a hard surface I am sure it would be completely stable.. but to note- I do not feel like it is going to fall over or anything. There are leveling feet to help. I may eventually put a piece of plywood the size of the equipment mat underneath- that will make it less wobbly!My only complaints so far are: 1. I wish it were black or darker gray. 2. I wish there was a backlight on the console. 3. The fan is useless unless you have your face on top of it but it was a nice thought...Even with the few complaints- for $350 you can't beat it. Much better reviews overall than any Proform I came across! 05/02/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great product! I've only had it for a few days, so I'll update this in a few months.First, I wanted to comment on Walmart's awesome Customer Service. I had it delivered site-to-store, and it ended up being a week late arriving. Before I had even contacted Walmart about it, they contacted me and gave me a $25 egift card for the inconvience. Then, the price dropped online before I got my product, and I contacted them about being refunded the diffrence in price, and right away I was refunded.Now, onto the product. It took about 2 hours for me and my husband to assemble (That's start to finish, including unpackaging everything and making sure it was all there). Assembly was pretty easy, with clear instructions. We were missing one small piece of hardware and my husband broke a bolt while screwing it in. I've contact Schwinn about it, and it should be arriving in a few days (make sure to register your prodcut with them right away and hang onto the atleast the e-mail reciept from WAlmart). I was very annoyed at being on hold for over 30 minutes! And the guy, although helpful, was not apologetic or friendly.Luckily, the bolt and other missing piece isn't hindering us from starting to use it. It gives an awesome workout!!!!! I used to run all the time, but I've since had a child and it's winter, so it's nice to have this machin to workout on. I was VERY pleased to see how QUIET it is! The only thing is that I wish the beep sound it makes when you press buttoms on the console wasn't so dang loud. I'm glad I went with an elliptical that has atleast an 18" stride length (well, this one is 17.5", technically). Anything shorter would have been way uncomfortable (I'm 5'5"). I would still prefer a longer stride length, but those all cost thousands of dollars.So, so far, I'm very pleased. Now, if it'll hold up for a few years and remian is good shape, then it was a perfect buy.Oh, and the screen is small and kinda hard to read, but it hasn't bothered me at all. I also don't care about watching my speed/calorie loss count constantly, though, so that could bother you. 02/25/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by excellent, affordable machine I love this machine. I was so concerned when I purchased it because I had scoured the internet for reviews for weeks. It looked like all the professional sites were knocking any machine less than a $1k (of course they were). I felt like I was playing elliptical roulette. BUT, that being said, the reviews here are pretty accurate. I love the machine. It was a bit rough putting together (the manual was incorrect in several places), and it did not come with batteries or an AC adapter (for over $300, an additional $20 for an adapter included is not much to ask). I was an incredibly out of shape 5'4", 190lb. female with poor balance and even worse ankles. I have zero problems on this machine and have been losing weight and steadily improving on the courses for about a month now. It's a bit wobbly when I really get going (mostly because I'm a clutz with so-so coordination), but I never feel like I'm going to fall off or anything. It's very quiet, very smooth, and the stride is just a bit longer than perfect for me-but not uncomfortable. I look forward to having this elliptical for a long time to come. 08/03/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great machine for the money First of all i can't believe how great this machine is very easy to put together,its 123.The only thing i hate about is the fan,don't waste your time.I must tell you ,this machine feels the same as the one in the gym, firm and soooo quiet.I am soooo happy with this product. 01/07/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Excellent price, excellent product for the price I was looking for an elliptical under $500, that would provide an indoor workout without taking up half of my bedroom space. I shopped all the major websites and local stores. I took a chance because of the brand name Schwinn. This item was an exceptional value. The reviews were spot on. The console is useless to me, I don't use it at all. I can't see it even with bifocals. I use my smartphone for music and I purchased a kitchen timer, both work great. I have a great ceiling fan, the fan on the console is a joke. I'm 5' 2", 100 lbs overweight, I've lost 10 lbs and 2" in my hips in one month, with average attention to diet, have not been that strict. I use my elliptical 6 to 7 days a week for 5 to 15 minutes daily. When I started, 2 minutes was a struggle. I am extremely happy with this purchase. Everything you need to put it together is provided. ( That's a plus) It took me 2 1/2 hours to put it together by MYSELF. It's very quiet, I can use it anytime of the day or night without disturbing the whole household. Improve the console, I would give it a 5 star rating. 11/04/2013
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by I bought this elliptical couple weeks ago choosing pick up at store. Delivery time was good, the comunication and delivery updates were very good. It came in a big and heavy box that do not fit in the car so I suggest to bring a SUV/Truck and a friend to help you. Assembly instructions are easy to follow. It took me 1.5 hours to complete the assembly. 2 people assembling this unit is the best way.I LIKE:- Feels like it has a very solid frame.- Quiet machine- Smooth ride- Preset working out programs seems to be working fine- PriceI DON'T LIKE:- It came with a tube plastic cap broken, this do not affect the machine performance.- The frame (below the pedals) is not over the floor 100%, it is above the floor around 2 inches, I checked the floor and it is even. I don't know if it was designed in this way or not.- Handle bars seems to be away from me, so I have to tilt my body forward. I'm 5'7". It makes my workout unpleasent- The information console is useless for those who likes to be watching / monitoring data.- The built in fan is also useless.- The console's information seems to be not accurate. Heart rate shows 72 all the time. I don't know if this is defective console or I made a mistake during assembling. 02/27/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Best Elliptical For the Price You won't find a better elliptical for the price. End of story.Yes, the console is not backlit and hard to read. I got a $5 book light from Walmart and it works great.Yes, the fan is basically non-existent. Don't use it. It will just wear down the batteries.Still, you will be hard pressed to find anything close for less than $800. 10/24/2011
