I got this product because due to an accident a few years back that broke both ankles I needed something that didn't put all my weight on my feet. I figured the reclined elliptical would be great. It is an okay machine but really needs something to work your arms and not only the legs. Also, the seat needs more support as it is somewhat uncomfortable, especially with nothing to do with your arms.

Comments about Schwinn 520 Reclined Elliptical:

This feels more like an recumbent bike to me. Was hoping for a little less travel on the stroke, as my knees are bad and need more of a limited cycle. It would be great for a person without any restrictions. But I can see the possibility for the average person.

            I bought the Schwinn Reclined Elliptical for my husband to exercise. He has a bad knee and he doesn't like going to the gym.

            He loves it. He tries to exercise everyday. He listens to music while on the elliptical and calls it his me time.

            I started using it myself and it really makes a difference. It's feels good getting a workout at home.
