    I spent a lot of time reading reviews trying to weigh out the pros and cons and of course cost was very important. I really wanted a machine that was mobile (but not folding), quiet and electric slope. I have been going to the gym less but because of my experience on the gym ellipticals I was spoiled with a very solid machine. The box was huge, so make sure they place it where you want to set up. Putting the elliptical together was very easy and the directions were very easy to use. It took my husband and I approximately 1 hour to put together. I like the fact that we can pick up the rear and easily move where we want in the house as there are wheels in front. The face of the machine was very nice and easy to understand when picking programs, intensity, resistance…ext. The machine has the ability to set 4 different profiles (name, weight, height, gender, ext), which is nice because I am on a completely different exerciser than my husband. My husband did not anticipate on using but he loves it. It is so quite and solid you never feel a sway in the machine and the stride is perfect for me (I’m 5’6″ 145 and husband is 6’0″ 175). It has the ability to plug in to ipod and usb port, I haven’t used them yet but a cool feature. I love the fan, which is also quite and does such a good job at keeping you cool. I am very pleased with this purchase, no regrets! Excellent price for the quality of the machine. Again, I make my purchases based on reviews and so I hope this helps with your search in purchasing an elliptical.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

    I’m very pleased with this elliptical. It operates very smoothly and quietly, and it offers plenty of features that make your workout as easy or challenging as you wish. I took notes from the time it arrived so it would hopefully help potential buyers of this model know what to expect.

    My Schwinn 470 arrived in a very large box that had to be delivered by a freight company since it was too large and heavy for UPS or Fedex. The delivery truck was a 28 foot small freight truck which was able to get in and out of my tight neighborhood. The driver brought it inside my door. I was alone that day, so I assembled it by myself. I’m a 51 year old woman, but had no worries about the task ahead of me. I started at 11:30 and finished at 2:08. This included the time necessary to unpack everything. The machine was in a lot of pieces, each wrapped in plastic and separated by thick Styrofoam for protection.

    The first thing I noticed was that the flywheel housing had popped loose during shipment, but I was able to pop it back into place easily enough. I used a flashlight to peer inside and it appeared that everything was intact.

    The unit came with all of the necessary hardware and tools for assembly. Some components had the hardware pre-assembled and needed to be unscrewed before connecting to other pieces. However, some of the screws came loose during shipment. Fortunately, all of the nuts and bolts were contained in the plastic bags that surrounded each piece so nothing was lost.

    Nothing was complicated to assemble, it was just a matter of using simple nuts and bolts to connect the parts. It was a little tricky to attach the console shaft to the flywheel housing since the collar around the shaft wanted to drop down in my way while I bolted it down. However, I grabbed a ribbon and tied it out of the way and it was a breeze after that.

    I did not assemble the elliptical in the exact spot where I planned to use it, so I had to lift the end and roll it into place. The machine is designed to be lifted and rolled and it moved easily enough, however it was very heavy to lift. I pulled the small of my back a little and it was slightly sore for a few days. Be careful how you lift it so you don’t experience the same thing.

    The cover of the manual said it was not complete and I should go to their website to download a complete copy. Those without internet access can call customer service to request a copy. This would annoy me if I was not able to get online, but thankfully I was able to download it. The printed copy includes 28 pages including the covers, and the downloaded copy is 48 pages long. The printed copy included all of the directions necessary to assemble the unit, along with basic operating instructions. You will need to download or order the complete manual to learn how to use all of the options available with this machine and I recommend reading it to make the most of your unit.

    The console includes a shelf that lets you place a tablet or other item for use during your workout. I personally did not find it useful because it wasn’t in the right position for me. I’m 5’5″ tall, but my vision isn’t the best. I was not able to read from that position. However, the machine is extremely quiet and I was able to watch a wall-mounted TV while using it. I also preferred to see the display on console as I used it and did not want to cover it up. I found it helpful and motivating to watch my progress as I worked out.

    The timer is nice and it even congratulates me when I exceed my record time. A button allows me to pause or end the workout. Push it twice to end, and it then goes into cool-down mode for 3 minutes. The timer stops, so the 3 minutes I use to cool down is not included in my total time. The workout also pauses anytime it detects that you have stopped, then it resumes when you begin again. This is very helpful if you get interrupted.

    The unit offers a variety of programs that will allow you to switch your routine up as often as you’d like. I think it makes it more fun to use, and it also makes it much more challenging. I had to back out of a few programs I tried, but that just encourages me to continue to build up my endurance and strength.

    Schwinn Connect allows you to download the data from your console and upload it to their website. From there you can keep track of how many calories you have burned and other statistics. It can also be integrated with MyFitnessPal. I personally found this to be only minimally helpful because I track my progress in other ways. However, I’m sure plenty of people will be motivated by this tool.

    Using this machine is very easy and comfortable. It’s also very smooth and quiet, much more so than I expected! The footplates are very large and cushioned, so it’s easy to get on and off and stay in place while using it. The water bottle holder is perfectly positioned and it…
