Schwinn A40 Elliptical Trainer (2011)

Enjoy a low-impact, total-body, cardiovascular workout without leaving the home with the Schwinn A40 elliptical trainer. Boasting a perimeter-weighted, high-inertia flywheel, the A40 runs smoothly and quietly, with eight resistance levels to keep you on your toes. The battery-operated trainer also supports several different workout programs (seven in total), allowing you to customize your workout and keep things fresh. And thanks to the informative LCD console, you can easily monitor your workout progress with readouts for time, rpm, distance, pulse, speed, calories, resistance level, and course profile. The over-sized console also includes a reading rack, water bottle holder, and integrated two-speed fan to keep you engaged and comfortable.

Other details include contact heart rate sensors, a 17-inch stride length, leveling feet for uneven surfaces, and a compact footprint. The A40, which supports up to 275 pounds, carries a two-year warranty on the frame, a six-month warranty on electrical parts, and a 30-day warranty on wear parts.
