Schwinn 431 Elliptical Trainer User Review
I can understand when people leave negative feedback when machines are delivered by companies who obviously don’t care, but the machine itself?
My Schwinn 431 elliptical trainer has become a part of my life. I might not be here today if I hadn’t chosen such an enjoyable machine to use. My doc told me to lose weight or else. He also said I would probably end up being diabetic if I didn’t start to exercise regularly.
I don’t have a lot of room for an exercise machine in my apartment and I chose this because Schwinn is a trusted name and because it can be moved easily.
It was easy to build and I was able to use it the same night. I was worried it would move around on my carpet but it stays put.
The doc told me how I should monitor my heart rate and start out easy. This has a fitness test which pretty much confirmed that I was as fit as a bag of lard.
The doc’s pleased with my progress after a month, and so am I, it’s given me a whole new outlook on life. I’m even walking more.
The Schwinn 431 Elliptical Trainer is an attractive and affordable machine that will keep you fit and help you lose weight and its fun to use.
