      Comments about Schwinn Journey 4.5 Elliptical:

      My husband and I gifted ourselves this elliptical for Christmas and are pleased with it! It feels different than the LifeFitness ellipticals we've used at the gym in the past, the first couple times really did a number on both of our knees. After a time though, we've gotten used to the stride. I like the speakers and the built in fan, and the different modes. It's very easy to set the intensity and the incline. It's also pretty easy to move around when need be.

      It is a very quiet machine, though ours seems to have developed a bit of a squeak.

      The "smart" user system doesn't seem very smart. Without reading the manual, it's hard to toggle between users. It seems you have to use a USB drive to export data from the machine to put on your computer and online to your Schwinn account.

      The readings also feel inaccurate - the calorie count seems very low and sometimes even the MPH seems wrong. At a level 2 intensity no matter how hard/fast I run, I can't seem to get it above 3.9 MPH.

      This is all forgivable (for me) because I will be investing in a fitness band that will track at least calories burned, and for now I just manually input into MyFitnessPal.

      I still really like it for the price and the quality of the product. Beats paying for a gym membership :)

          Comments about Schwinn Journey 4.5 Elliptical:

          I like this elliptical overall. I have it in my bedroom on carpet, and it still feels sturdy. My only complaint is the mph. If you increase your level, your mph automatically increases, and it decreases when you lower your level. If you are going the same rpm, your mph should stay the same. Also, if you're like me and you want to have a good idea of how many calories you're burning, you're going to need a different elliptical. Maybe the calories are correct, but I have done some hard workouts on this machine and think I burned more calories than it displayed. That could be wishful thinking, too. Again, I like the machine overall, but these are some annoyances that others might want to know about.

            Customer service is great, easy to assemble and easy to use. Sturdy, stable and quiet running. Needed unit for post surgery rehab. Unit has enough range of resistance to challenge me for a long time. Very satisfied with purchase.

              Comments about Schwinn Journey 4.5 Elliptical:

              Just got this the other day and im pretty impressed. works flawlessly so far. Nice options for resistance incline and display. only took me about an hour to put together 2 people could do this in half the time. instructions where well written and easy to follow. only hard part was pulling out the styrofoam holding the machine/parts in the box. didnt want to rip up the box just in case i needed to return it. dont think i will tho. feels comfortable im 5'11'' 230lbs and it seems to do well. had my phone plugged in for music but even with it off i could not hear the machine at all. lets just hope it will last. i will update a review in a month or 2. only 2 reviews including mine so far. was debating on getting this machine at all since there wasnt any reviews in here. but im glad i got it.
