Did You Know...
To accommodate users of all sizes, the Schwinn 431 elliptical trainer uses a full-sized 18-inch stride and it allows bi-directional pedaling. What this means is that if the user wants to pedal backward instead of just the regular forward motion, they can do that. The purpose of this is so that users can work different muscle groups instead of the same muscle groups during their workout.
By utilizing the many programs found on the Schwinn 431, you can expect your fitness to be taken to the next level in a short period of time. For example, this elliptical by Schwinn comes with 3 HRC or otherwise known as heart rate controlled programs that increases or decreases difficulty depending on your heart rate reading. It also features a calorie goal program which is pretty self explanatory. There's also a time trial program, a fitness test program, 10 profile programs, and two custom programs thrown in for good measure. Of course, you don't even need to use the programs if you don't feel like it. Simply go manual and you can still get a powerful workout.
When you're exercising, you probably don't want to wake your next door neighbors. The Schwinn 431 elliptical trainer is relatively quiet. Partly, this is due to the Eddy Current magnetic break resistance system which allows you to pedal smoothly even amidst heavy resistance.
The beautiful backlit display shows you all the feedback you need. There are even additional details not mentioned previously including Recovery Mode, Results Mode and BMI.
The flywheel on this elliptical comes in at a decent 25 pounds all made of steel. There's an integrated MP3 media compartment as well to ease boredom. With a bottle holder, a towel hook and a fan, you're probably going to be as comfortable as you can get when you're sweating those pounds away. With a maximum 300 pound user weight limit, this would suggest that it can handle users of most sizes. The warranty that comes with the Schwinn 431 elliptical is 15 years for the frame, 2 years for the parts, 1 year for the electronics and half a year for labor. Currently, Amazon is where most people would order the machine.
