Schwinn A40 Elliptical
At 64 inches long by 23 inches wide, this isn’t the biggest elliptical out there which is great for saving space, but the A40 can still support users up to 275 pounds. The machine offers eight levels of eddy current brake resistance which means a smooth and quiet workout every time and resistance can be easily changed right from the console. The oversized footplates can be set at a maximum height of 17 inches and articulate for a more natural and ergonomic movement during your workout.
The battery operated console is simple enough but still fairly impressive for a budget model with seven preset workout programs. The screen is a little small but the print is large, making it easier to read all of your key metrics which can be navigated easily with the press of a few buttons. This model is missing a fan which would be nice but does come standard with speakers, a water bottle holder and separate handles for heart rate monitoring.
