The Vertical Spin Trainer VST is a unique spin bike that has done away with the saddle to give you a more effective standing workout that burns more calories than cycling seated.

The Vertical Spin Trainer is a kind of cross between a stepper, elliptical and cycle, offering 3 degrees of activation between a vertical and semi-horizontal position.  Level 1 offers effective cardio burn, Level 2 works the abs and core, while Level 3 concentrates more effort on the hips and thighs.

The Vertical Spin Trainer’s 3 degrees of activation coupled with its 8 levels of resistance effectively gives you 24 different workout settings.  The flywheel and resistance system operates smoothly and quietly and the resistance is adjustable via the turn-dial resistance knob so you can easily adjust the intensity of your workout.

The Vertical Spin Trainer comes with a simple LCD monitor that displays motivating workout stats, including time, speed, distance, calories, pulse.  Your heart-rate is measured via the pulse grip heart-rate sensors built into the handlebars.

The Vertical Spin Trainer comes with 3 DVD workouts and also comes with a bonus smart-phone holder so you can stream free YouTube workouts to your own mobile phone while on the machine.

The Vertical Spin Trainer folds up and can be wheeled away for easy storage.

The Schwinn Journey 2.5 and 2.0 recumbent bikes are solidly constructed and well-designed with ergonomic comforts and plenty of features to keep your workouts varied and challenging.  Both recumbent bikes feature a high-speed high-inertia perimeter-weighted flywheel together with ECB magnetic resistance to provide a quiet workout with smooth consistent motion.

Both the Schwinn Journey 2.5 and 2.0 feature a surprisingly good sound system with acoustic chambered speakers and MP3 input so you can listen to your favorite music as you exercise.  There’s also a handy media shelf to place your mobile device so you can watch a movie or read while you cycle.

The Schwinn MY17 870 Treadmill incorporates a more powerful motor than the MY16 830 (3.0 chp compared to 2.5 chp) and features a slightly longer running belt at 60” long compared to the 830’s 55” long belt.  Both belts are 20” wide.

Note, the main difference between the 2013 and 2016/2017 models of the Schwinn 830 and 870 Treadmills comes down to the design of the console, with the new models being designed to be more user friendly and the 2017 870 Treadmill now having Bluetooth connectivity.
