After the brother in-law @ 51 had quintuple (5) bypass surgery, my wife decided to exercise more since her cholesterol level is about 220. We thought of getting a treadmill, but after looking at the ellipticals, we decided to get one. We read tons of reviews on different types of brands and models and we’re totally confused. Finally we decided to get a used one from Craigslists. There are many expensive used ellipticals that sell for half of their original prices, but now most of the new ones are better in options and quality. It’s a risky thing for us to buy something used without warranty for $500 width=”250″ height=”141″ although they cost over $1k new, and most of them were claimed that seldomly used. We truly believe that. Last weekend we stumbled onto a used Schwinn 460 elliptical, less than a year old and still on sale online for $350.00. We took the opportunity and got it since the couple had to move. It was heavy, we had to disassembled the handle bars, the console to fit it in our Audi’s station wagon. This is truly a sturdy… … machine and width=”250″ height=”141″ although it’s not very conventional like most ellipticals.
