SCHWINN ELLIPTICAL REVIEWS
General Information:Schwinn is part of the Nautilus Health & Fitness Group and the fitness equipment is made overseas. Thankfully, the few cheap treads they have made in the past have been discontinued but we’re wondering if the rest of the company will soon follow suit. Nautilus has decided to concentrate the Schwinn brand name on marketing ellipticals and bikes.
Manufacturing Philosophy:Their design philosophy seems to be to make a decent machine and put the money where it is important but they have been known to go cheap when they shouldn’t. They give their machines decent core drive system parts and then cut corners wherever possible.
Company Outlook : To put it kindly, the Nautilus Fitness Group is in a freefall. Heads have been rolling and finally the architect of this Greek tragedy lost his head just a short while ago. Whether they can pull it out is an outcome that is getting cloudier by the day. For several years, their customer service has been horrible and now, with the leadership changes, many in the industry wonder not whether the company will fail and hit the ground but how big a sound it will make when it hits.
