The Schwinn 420 Elliptical Trainer is an elliptical trainer developed by the company Schwinn which is famous for specially designing elliptical trainers for home use. This elliptical trainer comes with the qualities consistent with other Schwinn elliptical trainers because it is compact, easy to use, and relatively affordable.
What You Get with Each Schwinn 420 Elliptical Trainer:
The Schwinn 420 Elliptical Trainer offers the users a chance to have a great cardio workout program that is smooth, natural, and personalized. This is achieved via its BioGlide motion technology which allows each user to have a natural elliptical stride.
The Schwinn 420 also has three special features namely BioFit Comfort, BioDyne Performance, and BioConnect Feedback. BioFit Comfort means that the product has biomechanically designed linkages designed to provide comfort. This design also ensures that each Biofit stride made using the equipment assumes a natural elliptical path. A notable design aspect is the ergonomic handle. These handles are great for multiple workout positions. It also helps in working out the upper body.
BioDyne Performance is best explained by its three sub-features. First, the Schwinn 420 allows for bi-directional pedaling. This means that users can pedal either forward or backward depending on which muscle group they want to target. Second, the Schwinn 420 Elliptical Trainer features a perimeter weighted flywheel. This flywheel Biofit is responsible for the smoothness and consistency of each workout. Lastly, the Schwinn 420 also offers built-in oversized stabilizers and levelers. The general rule of thumb: oversized insert-thing isn’t good when it comes to weight loss, but here, it simply means that the 420 operates on a solid workout platform.
The third feature of the Schwinn 420 Elliptical Trainer is its BioConnect Feedback. The Schwinn 420 has 12 workout programs, an integrated grip heart rate system and16 resistance levels. All of these features ensures that each work out is completely personalized. The multiple resistance levels of the 420 are a feature to note because it allows the user to challenge himself and push his limits. Users can adjust the resistance to see how much they can take, and then gradually go higher as they improve.
he BioConnect Feedback feature prevents the user from achieving a plateau. A workout plateau means that the body becomes too used to a certain level of exercise that it stops working. To prevent this, the 420’s 12 workout programs create opportunities for the user to change routines and “confuse” the body so that it doesn’t get used to the exercise.
How the Schwinn 420 Elliptical Fairs with its Competitors:
Schwinn 420 elliptical trainer reviews against similar products have been consistently positive. One thing that users love about the product is the fact that it is smaller than other elliptical trainers out in the market (although it is larger compared to some elliptical trainers in the same series). Another feature that users love about the product is the presence of 12 workout programs to choose from. One user even noted that she loved switching between programs and trying out each feature.
The 420’s 18 inch stride is also a good feature for most users. Although experts would suggest that the stride depends on height, most users have found this unit’s stride to be perfect for them. They’ve also commented that the 18 inch stride is the most comfortable that they have found so far.
One setback of this product however, is that it has a 300 pound weight limit. This means that some of the larger consumers would have to find another way to lose weight.
Making a Decision:
The Schwinn 420 elliptical trainer is a product that gives a great workout while maintaining its smooth and natural feel. For what you are getting, the product is well worth it both for experienced and novice users.
