The Schwinn 430 elliptical comes with a lot of great features that help you get the most bang for your buck. It has a 20-inch stride, large footplates, and 20 levels of resistance. You’re also able to track your heart rate on the contact grips that are part of the handlebars. While there are six levels of incline available, it’s manually adjustable, which is something to note.
The Schwinn 430 Elliptical comes with dual screens to easily view the pre-programed workouts, or you can use the media shelf to view your own device or reading material. There is also a charging USB port and MP3 input so you can listen to podcasts, books, and music through the speakers. Typical with Schwinn, this product is built to last. The frame has a 10-year warranty.
If you're looking for an economical option for an elliptical, this could be a good choice. While it does not have all the bells and whistles of the higher-tech ellipticals, you’ll still get a good workout in.
