December 5, 2012 - Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS), a leader in innovative home fitness equipment, announces the release of the Schwinn® 520 Reclined Elliptical machine. This cutting-edge cardiovascular system combines Airdyne® technology with a recumbent seat and an elliptical path to simulate a natural walking motion, providing an effective workout that relieves pressure from the joints.
The unique design of the Airdyne® fan provides progressive resistance so the harder you pedal the higher the resistance, which makes it adaptable for any fitness level even for those in rehabilitation.
The design also features an oversized flexible footplate, enabling the machine to target multiple muscle groups using varying foot positions. In addition, the contoured seat encourages good posture while providing hours of comfortable use. The easy to read, fully featured console allows users to set calorie, distance and time goals and adjusts to the user’s preferred viewing angle.
“Nautilus’ mission is to develop and market innovative products that help people achieve their health and fitness goals” said Bruce Cazenave , CEO of Nautilus . “Our new Schwinn® Reclined Elliptical is a perfect extension to our Schwinn® branded portfolio of products and adds to the growing list of truly innovative Nautilus Inc. products which includes the CoreBody Reformer®, the Peak Fit System™, the Bowflex® TreadClimber®, and others. These products are all uniquely designed to give people, of any age and fitness level, effective tools to transform their lives and achieve their fitness goals in the comfort of their home.”This launch continues to build momentum for the valued line of Airdyne technology products. In September, the ageless Schwinn® Airdyne® upright fan bike was redesigned to feature a smaller, quieter, frictionless fan. The flagship AD6 model is designed for the rigors of both home and club use and carries residential and commercial use warranties.
