Schwinn has updated the Airdyne warranty terms to the following:
This machine is for Home and Light Commercial use only. Light Commercial use is defined as settings where usage is less than 5 hours per day in non-dues-paying facilities—for example, condominiums, hotels and corporate gyms.
What is not covered: A machine placed or used in a commercial setting. This includes commercial gyms, clubs, fitness centers and any public or private entity that has a machine for use by its members, customers, employees or affiliates where dues, subscriptions or paid memberships are collected, or where the product is used more than 5 hours per day.
When the machine is put in a Light Commercial environment, it can only be used in areas where access and control of the machine is managed by approved staff. The degree of management depends among other things on the specific setting in which the machine is placed, security of that environment, and familiarity of the users with the equipment.
