schwinn a10 uprightWith no less than 6 programs and a highly innovative Quickstart program, the new Schwinn A10 Upright Bike has been especially conceived to help users lose weight with minimal effort. Indeed, as one of the most efficient and result-inducing workouts, biking can help users lose a staggering 900 calories on high intensity in just one hour. Less experienced users can even lose up to 400 calories on mild to moderate tension level, depending of course on your overall fitness level, gender, age and weight.

More importantly, since this machine is so comfortable and easy to operate, users will be quite motivated and eager to start their training sessions. Personally, I found the machine comfortable enough to push past my regular boundaries and devote more hours to my workouts.

In spite of its lightweight frame, this product is also very often found in gyms and health centers, notably because of its durability. With a maximum user capacity of 275lbs, the Schwinn A10 can very easily suit several types of people. Since it takes a lot of pressure off the joints, this upright bike is also quite suitable for old or overweight people.

About the Company

A pioneer in the Health and Fitness industry, Schwinn Fitness has quite a long history of manufacturing a plethora of products designed to encourage their users to have a much healthier and active lifestyle. Not unlike the A10, most of their gym equipment are supported by a computer-controlled Eddy current tension system which is considered as being among the best on the market. Because of this, we also took the time to review more-advanced models Schwinn 170, 150, 130 and 120.schwinn a10 monitor

This upright bike is especially known for its high-inertia flywheel that has been designed to provide the user with a deeply realistic sensation of pedaling outdoors. This feature also provides a practically silent workout which is a refreshing change from the regular mechanical and whining noises that often come with other stationary bikes. The silent option allows users to watch a movie or listen to some music while they train, hence motivating them to work out for a longer period of time.

The Schwinn A10 comes with an oversized LCD console which has been designed to provide feedback on various fitness-related data including your speed, watts, distance, time, calories, RPM and pulse. The handlebars are equipped with cardiovascular sensor which warns elderly athletes or heart patients know when they’re overdoing it. These sensors can also be used by experienced athletes to keep an eye on their overall fitness levels while tracking their recovery time progress.

The Eddy Current resistance system provides no less than 8 resistance settings, hence enabling users to indulge in tailor-made training sessions. This feature also provides a versatile array of exercise options for inexperienced users as well since they will be able to set their own pace and allow their bodies to gradually build up enough stamina before moving on to the next level. Through the console, athletes can also chose between 6 different exercise programs including smooth or uphill terrains.

Ease of Use and Comfortschwinn a10 seat

This cardio machine does provide several features to enhance your comfort. The pedals are oversized and ergonomically placed so as to provide a firm hold around your ankles. Also, since they’re on the larger side, they can very easily suit to various shoe sizes.

The upright bike is also equipped with a media tray and speakers to make your workout even more enjoyable. Best of all, it also comes with a uniquely comfortable saddle that instantly adjusts to the user’s body which drastically reduces the risk of burns, aches or discomfort normally associated with most stationary bikes.

As far as storage goes, this upright bike is unfortunately not foldable. However, it is light and compact enough to be put away in a corner without straining floor space. While most people will be able to easily carry it from room to room, the machine is equipped with a set of sooth transport wheels to facilitate storage and mobility.

Assembly and Parts

Because of its lightweight frame, the Schwinn A10 is exceptionally easy to assemble. In fact, the boxed packaging comes with everything you need to put the different parts together including the knobs, screws, parts and necessary tools. It also includes a detailed manual which provides clear and concise instructions to speed up the assembly process. Instead of the 30 minutes assembly time provided by the manual, I personally found that I could put it together within only 15 minutes!

Drawbacks

Hardly any drawbacks were reported with this product. However, a few users did claim to have had an issue with the lack of backlight feature on the console. According to them, this hinders their reading of their exercise progress even if the screen is on the larger side. Only one customer said that she had problems with the assembly process and had to call the aftersales team.schwinn a10 2013

A Worthy Investment

Users who are looking for a budget friendly upright bike with professional, club-worthy features are not going to be let down by the Schwinn A10. In stark contrast to other low-quality and poorly built stationary bikes, this item is reputed for its longevity and can very easily last for several decades with proper maintenance. The console is simple enough to be manipulated by newbies, but, at the same time, it also comes with professional-grade options designed to provide both a challenging as well as an easier workout.

The Schwinn A10 Upright Bike is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty of 6 months on the parts and 2 years on the frame, and is available for purchase on Amazon.
