Product Description

Amazon.com

Elliptical trainers provide an effective cardiovascular workout that combines upper and lower body flexibility and coordination into one impact-free motion. By emulating the natural motion of your foot while supporting your heel throughout the stride, elliptical trainers are much easier on your knees and joints. In addition to feeling more natural while working out, regular use on ellipticals will increase heart and lung capacity while improving your health (and burning calories at the same time).

In addition to accommodating a wide variety of users with its lengthened 18 inch/46 centimeter stride, the Schwinn 418 Elliptical Trainer also incorporates an articulating footplate, which follows the natural motion of your foot and supports your heel throughout the entire stride motion. Additional features of Schwinn's 418 Elliptical Trainer include a grip heart-rate monitoring and a high-inertia drive system using an oversized flywheel and Poly V-belt. The quiet magnetic resistance Eddy Current Brake provides a smooth ride. The more than ten workout programs include: rolling, valley, fat burn, ramp, plateau, intervals, mountain, heart rate, and manual mode. An LCD display shows time, speed, distance, revolutions per minute, resistance level, calories and calories per hour, load, and heart rate and course profile.

About Elliptical Trainers
Elliptical trainers represent the next wave of advancement in low-impact cardiovascular exercise machines and continue to grow in popularity. By simulating motions experienced through walking, stepping, cycling, and skiing, elliptical machines allow for a smooth and fluid motion while building strength in the arms and legs. Similar to the exercise position for treadmills, elliptical trainers are used by standing in an upright position while holding the handrails of the machine. With elliptical trainers, however, your feet remain in the foot pedals throughout the exercise regimen and circulate in a smooth and seamless motion, resulting in little to no impact on the knees, back, and hips.

Elliptical trainers are compatible for all ages and fitness levels and allow you to select the difficulty level through the incline and intensity settings. Additionally, elliptical trainers allow you to determine the complexity of your workout based on your needs, all while listening to music, watching television, or reading a magazine while exercising in the comfort and safety of your own home.

Although different types of elliptical trainers offer an assortment of features, many of them include an array of challenging programs, forward and reverse directional movement, EKG grip pulse handles, a lightweight portable design with easy fold-up capability, and a monitor displaying calories burned, distance, speed, time, and heart rate. Other types of exercise machines, namely treadmills and bikes, offer excellent cardiovascular exercise and muscular training for the legs in a forward-motion exercise. Elliptical trainers take this to the next level by offering an upper and lower body workout with dual motion, challenging and diverse programs, and a low-impact exercise machine that won't strain sensitive joints.

In the two weeks I have used the Schwinn 418 Elliptical Trainer I have been quite happy with its performance. Its magnetic friction keeps the machine quiet so others in the house don't complain about the noise. The motion is silk smooth and still provides a good workout.

Why not 5 stars? First, the one of the footpads came broken and I have had to order a new one (machine is still usable of course). And second, the instructions are unclear about using the control panel. I have been learning how to use it through trial and error.

I purchased the 418 from Amazon after finding that this was the Consumer Reports Best Buy, and rated number two on their review list. Intermingled with the several thousand dollar units was the Schwinn, MSRP of $1200. Amazon had it for $799 w/ free shipping, a bit more than other retailers, but they weren't offering free shipping, so the price difference became a dollar.

The unit was delivered within a couple weeks, handled by a bulk transport company. They were very cordial, called 15 minutes prior to arrival so I could leave the office to meet them at the house. It is a threshold delivery, so they unloaded it from the pallet off the truck and left it in my garage. I unboxed it in the garage and carried the pieces to my basement, and began assembly. The directions are about as expected for a device like this. However, I ran into a big problem, I was missing the console mast assembly (large upright piece that the display goes on). So we called the Schwinn customer support number and they by second day air the "mast assembly." I was quite shocked to find an 8" box sitting on my porch when it should have been 3 feet long. The part number was correct we learned when calling them back, but they pulled the wrong item from the warehouse. They again resent a console mast assembly by second day air. Brought the large package into my basement, and my wife began reassembling. Only to find out that this piece didn't fit into our unit. I got home from work to find my wife on the phone with the rep. He had her taking off the plastic covering to try and slide the assembly in. Mind you, we're talking about two square pieces here of both the same size. It wouldn't even fit into the round plastic opening, which is why they had her taking apart the covers.

I purchased this machine because I recently broke my toe, and the doctor said no treadmill for 4-5 weeks. I was used to a rigorous 50-minute workout each day.

I received the Schwinn 418 Elliptical trainer today.
First, I don't know how Amazon can offer free shipping, but what a deal.
It was shipped to a city an hour away, and then a local delivery firm was hired to take it the rest of the way. Wow!

First, assembly. No missing parts, no extra parts, no broken parts.
The manual was clear and easy to understand. I had it completely assembled in exactly 40 minutes. Seriously, if it takes someone 3 hours to put this together, there are much deeper issues at work, issues that Schwinn can't be blamed for.

As soon as I assembled the 418, I took it for a spin. I had never used an elliptical before. Wow, it really works the upper legs. I can see this is going to be a very tough workout.

The machine is very solid. A few clunking sounds were quickly remedied by torquing down on the bolts a little more.

I will update this review after I've put the machine through its paces for a few weeks. But I really wanted to address the complaints about difficult assembly and poor quality control. No problems here. User error, perhaps?

Update: After using this machine every day for almost 2 weeks, I would now give it 1 star. It is so unbearably loud that I had to go back to using wireless headphones because I can't hear the TV over the horrible shrieking and squealing.

Every single joint on this machine creaks and squeals loudly.
I've loosened bolts, tightened bolts, and lubed every single moving part.

No help.

If I'd tried this machine out first, I wouldn't have even considered buying it.

I purchased a Schwinn 418 Elliptical Trainer in April of 2005 after reading about it in the January, 2005 Consumer Reports magazine. I purchased from Amazon through a third party vendor and paid significantly more than what it is selling for now. After reading the comments on here mentioning worries about quality control, I wanted to assure people that, two years later, my machine is working just as well as it did the day I installed it. I use the machine religiously for 45 minutes a day five days a week, and my wife uses it, too, though not as regularly. It is virtually silent, smooth, and dependable. The ONLY problems I have with it are two: 1) Every now and then, for no real reason, the display messes up on the machine and displays too dark of an image. I simply unplug the machine, wait about 10 seconds, and plug it back in again. Everything works fine. 2) In 23 months I've had to tighten the bolts holding the machine together probably four or five times. Every few months or so the machine gets a wobble or creaks a little or I feel a weird vibration in one of the foot pedals, but I tighten up the bolts and life is good again.

Actually, I wonder how many of the people complaining on here about a noisy machine simply need to tighten the bolts. I remember having to make adjustments the first week or so to get the machine adjusted so that it didn't wobble or creak.

So all in all, it's been a terrific machine, and I am a very satisfied customer who paid almost $1,100 with shipping for my machine. I consider $799 a bargain, and I've honestly considered purchasing a second machine just to keep around for when I wear this one out.

UPDATE OF THIS ORIGINAL REVIEW: Since writing this review I have further researched the Schwinn 418.
