The Schwinn 250 has been a front-runner in the market for a couple of years now, and it still is one of the best choices out there.
The good thing about this highly rated recumbent bike is that it has a comfortable back rest and a seat base that has been sculptured; this means that the user does not suffer from back pressure. Joint swelling is greatly reduced, letting the user achieve better results without the discomfort. Plus, there’s an ergonomic seat that’s extra wide, allowing adjustments according to the user’s preferences. The seat is made of rubber material that is both durable and comfortable. In addition, the bike has a console which is adjustable on the angle, aft and fore position, making it accommodating for all types of users. The oversized design of the pedal makes it ideal for all shoe sizes as well.
Schwinn 250 has a lot of features, but its best asset lies in the 16 workout programs that users can choose from. There are also 16 different resistance levels. The machine has both telemetry and contact heart rate monitoring that can be seen on an LCD screen. Here, the user can easily customize the workout depending on his needs. The perimeter weighted flywheel gives a smooth workout, too. The oversized stabilizers that are built-in to the bike help provide a solid platform, regardless of the intensity of the workout.
The larger console of the bike is one of its best additions, because it offers a good place to put tablets, phones or reading materials. The recumbent bike features an extended pause, which users can utilize to take a break and return to where they left off. It only logs time when the pedals are actually moving, too.
In addition, there are also extra features and specs that create a more enjoyable and fun workout session, such as:
- MP3 port and speakers
- Bottle holder
- Reading rack
- Storage space
- Transport wheel
Because of its profile editor, the user can fully personalize the workout. Also, the “Schwinn Advantage” feature lets the user keep track of his workout, which is a great motivational tool, as well as a way to increase resistance.
Ease of Use
The bike is very durable and sturdy, designed to be very easy to use without compromising the quality and intensity of the workout. First-time users may be intimidated because of its numerous advanced features and specs, but rest assured that it is as user-friendly as they come. It is quite simple to understand how it works, thanks to the display monitor that is clear and readable. By tracking the user’s performance, both for the current workout and long-term progress, it is very helpful in monitoring where a user’s strengths are, and what areas need improvement.
