New Nautilus product offers cardiovascular workout



Nautilus Inc., the Vancouver-based maker of fitness equipment, said Wednesday it has released a new exercise machine providing a cardiovascular workout that goes easy on users’ joints.

The Schwinn 520 Reclined Elliptical machine simulates a “natural walking motion, providing an effective workout that relieves pressure from the joints,” the company said. The machine’s Airdyne fan “provides progressive resistance” and is “adaptable for any fitness level, even for those in rehabilitation,” the company said. On Chicago-based Kozy’s Cyclery’s website, the machine was selling for $749.99.

Nautilus, which reported a third-quarter profit of nearly $1 million, has recently been rolling out new products, including at lower prices to reach more consumers.
