Schwinn 420 provides you with all the necessities that you will ever need. It has gained enough popularity within a few days because it offers fitness goals in such a reasonable amount. Most of the people of our society need an exercise machine which should not be time-consuming and which gives outstanding results that they can witness through their own eyes. We have done a short experiment with this elliptical. We put this trainer in a gym and asked a few questions to the users. almost 100% of the respondents said, they would love to see it in their home gym. The display is user-friendly and informative (according to respondents). But everyone could identify this elliptical as a budget elliptical, because of the materials.


  • Well built, Strong, stable
  • Very Quiet
  • Compact
  • Smooth motion
  • Easy to select courses, duration, intensity


  • Bit Hard to assamble
  • Display is not back-lit
  • Bad quality speakers
  • Fan barely moves any air

This trainer has a lot of good features that we can easily hide the bad ones. You better ask yourself that, have you ever seen such a unique way of maintaining fitness in an entertaining environment? It works in a dual way, by providing mental relaxation through music and muscle resting through exercise. After reading its positive aspects in detail, one would buy it immediately without giving a second thought to its price. It would not be wrong to assert this trainer as an incredible machine of its time which is made after years of hard work. The experts have spent enough time on its appearance, uniqueness, features and colors in order to make it the perfect machine which can not be seen as similar to the previous inventions. Not only the experts but even the gymnasium leaders recommend this Trainer to be a great cardio trainer in any home gym.


BioFit Comfort

  • Biomechanically designed linkages offer a comfortable and natural 18-inch elliptical path
  • Ergonomic handles offer multiple workout positions
  • In-console speakers and MP3 music input port
  • Console holds magazines, ebooks, or other media in multiple locations

BioDyne Performance

  • Bi-directional pedaling allows you to pedal forward or backward to target specific muscle groups
  • Perimeter weighted flywheel with high inertia for smooth, consistent workouts
  • Oversized stabilizers and levelers are built-in for a solid workout platform

If you disregard the poorly designed electronics, the 420 works wonderfully and I would recommend it as it really is the best bang for the buck in its price range.
