Great So Far, December 23, 2009
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Schwinn 840 Treadmill (Sports)

The box did arrive damaged, but everything appeared to be okay inside. It is fairly heavy yet easy to move on a level surface, but I’m not sure how getting it up stairs would work. The top of the console comes in three sections, there’s one bag of tools, one bag for the cord, and then the rest of the unit. I was able to move the unit from my garage to my living room myself without too much problem, but I’m over 6′ with enough muscle to do it, most people will need help moving it and all the directions call for two people to set it up. All the tools are included and it took only about 15 minutes to tighten a couple of bolts and unscrew a few screws, put on the console, and replace the screws. Fairly simple.

Just a test run today to see how quiet it is which I was concerned about, but it is very quiet, even more so than I’d hoped. So far it appears to be very solid and I hope to get a lot of use out of it. The instructions do say to use some silicon lubricant prior to use and after every 50 hours or 3 months, which I didn’t know about.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

This is an amazing piece of equipment! I have been a typical “couch potato” most of my life, but over the last two years I’ve gotten healthier. This past year I trained and walked in a 3-day cancer walk for the Susan Komen Foundation. After that, I decided I wanted to continue my walking routines, but indoors. I’ve never had a treadmill before, so I was excited about getting one for all the regular reasons – walking indoors in the air, walking in a safe place, convenience of walking when I wanted, etc. But I was also a little nervous about having to put this piece of equipment together; however, it was a breeze!

First, most of it is already put together when it arrives. All I had to do was connect the arms/handlebars and console. The directions – unlike many other companies – were easy to understand and follow, and all the little tools and parts required to do the job were included. I am not especially handy at this sort of thing, but I had no trouble at all.

Next, using this treadmill is wonderful and easy. The deck or walking belt is very, very comfortable and the whole thing is on hydraulics so that with the push of a button the deck raises or lowers to increase or decrease the incline and level of work. I especially like the fact that the incline can be adjusted in small increments of only 1% at a time so that I can easily determine my level of work. The speed controls are also easy to use so that I was able to walk from a slow easy pace (my beginning level) to a brisk pace (I don’t run). And my husband, the runner, loves it as well because the pace will boost to his level very quickly. It goes from 1/2 mile an hour to 10 miles an hour for the really fast folks!

The best thing about this treadmill is that it is a highly professional piece of equipment. It looks like and has all the functions of all the “high end” treadmills that I have seen or used in the local gyms – but WITHOUT the “high end” cost. The console provides multiple functions so that each user can program a personal routine and save it. The routine can be based on sex/weight/and type of program and later shows calories burned, AND the program can be converted to Metric standards easily. There are multiple course options to choose from so that beginners, intermediate users, and athletes can use the machine and get a great workout from it. For serious folks wanting to improve their health or train for personal or athletic goals, this equipment comes with a heart monitor and instructions in the book for setting goals to reach 65%, 75%, or 85% heart “rates”.

Another favorite quality of this piece of equipment is that the walking deck can actually be folded upwards so that it is in a standing position instead of taking up floor space! That’s right – it folds! Even though this is a heavy, professional weight and quality piece of equipment, the deck folds up into the arms/handlebars so that you can have the floor space for other uses.

So basically, I have had this treadmill for about 4 weeks now and I am no longer a “couch potato”. I am back to a good walking routine, but indoors instead of in the 90+ temps and high humidity of south Georgia. My best walking time is 5:00 a.m., so I now have the safety of walking in my home instead of the dark outside, which previously kept me from walking at all. I also find that I walk more often since I have the treadmill right here. I can get on and do 30 or 40 minutes in the comfort of my own home – and I am loving it!!!
