Schwinn Treadmill 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 : With the continued recession, we have learned that the weaker companies have had a hard time with many of them going out of business. Nautilus continues to bleed money so we can't help but speculate that time might not be on Nautilus' side.
