Schwinn Elliptical Review Index
General Information:Schwinn is part of the Nautilus Health & Fitness Group and the fitness equipment is made overseas. They are still supporting some of the lower end units but Nautilus has really been trying to put all their eggs into the direct business in order to stay alive. Nautilus has made Schwinn a focus of their elliptical and group cycling lineup. You can find these widely marketing on the internet and in some mass market stores.
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 you shouldn't from time to time. They give their machines decent core drive system parts and then cut corners wherever possible.
Company Outlook : Nautilus' new CEO, Edward Bramson, really seems to have the Nautilus company's act together. They have worked hard to cut costs, shed unprofitable units, and focus on the parts of the company that have the potential to make them a strong company again.
