Schwinn 438

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

For Schwinn, the Schwinn 438 is the absolute top of the range. This unit has all kinds of different features that are greta to have in an elliptical machine, but has a pretty reasonable price. The Schwinn 438 looks like earlier versions of this model, but with a few twists to the design. The motion of the elliptical is pretty smooth, and doesn't make too much noise - there is nothing worse that a noisy excersise machine, even in the comforts of your own home. Despite the fact that the Schwinn 438 is considered an entry level elliptical machine, it still takes up quite a bit of room, with the stride limited to just 18 inches total. However, the Schwinn 438 has all kinds of different programs to offer, up to 21 in fact, including four custom routines, three heart rate routines, ten profile workouts, which include different manual options, time trials and varying fitness tests. The Schwinn 438 allows you to have a greta deal of variety in your excersise routine, something that many often complain quite a bit about.

The Schwinn 438 has grip sensors built into the handlebars, as well as a chest strap for the hands. This allows you to determine and check in on your heart rate while excersisng on the elliptical machine. If you have a family, you are able to store up to four different user profiles on the machine. This also allows you to support one another as a family in your weight loss or health goals. There are also all kinds of different handlebar grips, so you can play around and find what feels best for you.

The Schwinn 438 has all kinds of different fantastic features that one would seek out in an elliptical - it has transport wheels, a cooling fan, as well as a water bottle holder.
