            Resistance Levels

            Well, this is one for those that never give up. There is no certain number of resistance levels on this one and you can go as far as your fitness and muscle can take you with the infinite levels. Since you will be more comfortable than you would on a variety of the other trainers, you can rest assured that you will be able to go considerable further. Luckily, your desire to beat the machine will always be fueled.


            To make sure that you are able to keep an eye on your progress as well as statistics that include the time that you have been on your session, the distance that you have covered as well as the calories that you have been able to burn, the trainer is fitted with an enhanced resolution LCD that is much easier to see even from the comfort of the reclining seat.

            Pre-programmed workouts

            This is where the Schwinn 520 Reclined Elliptical is quite dismal. It features only 3 built in workout programs but considering that it has been built for people that have been around ellipticals for quite some time, it should not be hard to have come across some great work out programs for yourself along the way. Those available include a time goal program, a calorie goal program and a distance goal program. That should be more than enough to cater to your fitness needs.

            Incline Adjustment

            In this case, the incline adjustment is a bit different and this is because of the fact that there is the presence of the chair. You can recline this as you wish to target the muscles you would like to work on and equally there is the rubber fan belt that gives the muscles a better and more sustained workout.

            Stride Length

            Considering that you will be seating, there is more room for you to adjust your strides. That is why the Schwinn 520 Reclined Elliptical does not come with the standard 17 to 20 inch stride lengths that you would find on the other models. Instead, it features a 14 inch stride that is more involving of the muscles and offers better results.


            There are several warranties that are offered with the purchase of this machine. The first is the 5 years warranty on the frame of the elliptical trainers as well as a 1 year mechanical and electrical warranty, a 90 day warranty for the wear parts and an equal warranty for the labor. These are not the best timelines but considering the price of this elliptical trainer, they are acceptable.

            Price and Value

            For about $1,000 you can be able to enjoy comfort while you work out your cardio and muscles and enjoy the different variety of features that the Schwinn 520 Reclined Elliptical has to offer. Ever wanted to watch a movie while you work out? Or read a book? This elliptical allows you to enjoy the better of two worlds at the same time. There is no doubt that it will be giving you value for your money considering the fact that it will be attending to the most vital aspects of your life and that is your health and your comfort.
