VANCOUVER, WA--Oct 15, 2008 -- Leading fitness equipment manufacturer Nautilus, Inc. (NLS) is taking exercise to a whole new level. New for 2008, Nautilus introduces the Schwinn® 460 -- an elliptical machine that lets users vary stride lengths dynamically for nearly infinite variety and customized comfort with every workout. Uniquely designed for home use, the Schwinn 460 Elliptical incorporates three foot-driven motions -- stepping, walking, and running -- with an integrated handlebar system to engage upper- and lower-body muscles. Using V-stride(TM) elliptical technology and independently moving footplates, the Schwinn 460 engages both sides of the body to optimize users' fitness results, which are trackable using the Schwinn Advantage(TM) personal training program.

"The 460 brings real innovation to the Schwinn brand in fitness equipment," said Nathan Roe, Director of Marketing at Nautilus. "With a Schwinn legacy that began in the 1960s with the Deluxe Exerciser, and now 30 years after the introduction of the famous Airdyne® stationary bike, we are excited in 2008 to continue the Schwinn heritage of quality, innovation and value."

The Schwinn 460 includes eleven workout profiles built by fitness professionals from the Nautilus Institute®, with instructional messaging for maximizing stride lengths and motions. Other features include a back-lit touch screen console, an oversized water bottle holder, contact and telemetric heart rate chest monitoring, and an angle-adjustable fan. With 16 workout levels, the Schwinn 460 is controlled by a quiet, magnetic ECB (Eddy current brake) resistance system.

MSRP: $1599. Available nationwide at major sporting goods stores, including Amazon.com, Dick's Sporting Goods, MC Sports, and Schwinn-authorized bike dealers nationwide. For more information, visit: http://www.SchwinnFitness.com
