Schwinn A40 Elliptical Machine Features

With this elliptical, you can enjoy a substantial 17.5 stride length, which should work for anyone looking to get a good workout. Since you can control your stride length  by your height, an adjustable stride length is excellent since it can accommodate exercisers that are short, tall, or have a distinctive stride. Unfortunately, the stride length isn’t adjustable. 

For tall individuals, a too-short stride length will force you to restrict your steps as well as not allowing you to fully exercise your legs. For short individuals, a too-long stride length will have you straining to keep your feet on the pedals and you could hurt yourself sliding off of them. Also, a stride length that does not fit you correctly is pointless for your fitness routine and your safety. 

One of the biggest selling points of the Schwinn A40 Elliptical are the ergonomically handlebars. These handlebars monitor your heart rate. During your workout, grip the handlebars and the LCD console will give you a reading on your heart rate. Doing this will let you know whether to slow down or pick up the pace. The handlebars are also adjustable to accommodate people with long or short arms. 

One thing to remember is that the LCD operates on a battery and has no backlight. Purchasing the AC adapter will help you read the display.
