This allows both the parent and child to enjoy their day at the park. It is a stroller packed with features that is sure to help any parent put in the effort for their fitness.

- Cushioned seat – The stroller cabin features padded seating so your child stays comfortable even through rough terrains.
- Adjustable handlebars – In order for parents to keep control of the stroller as they jog, the handlebars can be adjusted to suit the parent’s height for easier controller and handling.
- Removable child tray – This affordable Schwinn stroller jogger comes with a swing away child tray with built-in cup holders for your child’s bottle or sippy cup so they can stay hydrated under the sun. The tray can also be removed completely, making it easier for your child to get on or off the stroller.
- Parent tray – Your child isn’t the only one with a convenient place to store their belongings. The handlebar also features a parent tray that comes with two cup holders, as well as a compartment for your cellphone, wallet and keys.
- Easy-access storage basket – The Schwinn Interval Jogging Stroller features an easy-access storage basket. Its size makes it easier for parents to keep any items they want under the cabin. And the large back opening makes it easy to fish out a bag or umbrella underneath.

If you’re looking for brighter colors and styles in a stroller, the Schwinn Interval Jogging Stroller may not be what you are looking for. This particular model is only available in two styles:

The orange design is perfect as the bright orange color makes it easier for you and your child to be spotted when you go on your walks and runs. Meanwhile the blue style is more calming for the eyes.

How much should you pay?
As far as jogging strollers go, the Schwinn Interval Jogging Stroller is by far one of the more affordable ones. The recommend retail price is $199.99, and most online stores sell the stroller just about that price. You may however get it get it cheaper on sites that are running promotion on the Schwinn Interval jogger.
Overall, Schwinn did a great job with the design of the jogger stroller as it really captures what parents want to do – jog. However, it still has a few hiccups that make it less than desirable to some families. Some parents find it heavy and bulky, and takes too much space in the trunk of small cars. This may be an issue if you have a small car and plan to transport the Schwinn Interval jogger in the trunk.
So it is more recommended for parents with larger vehicles.
The jogger is sturdy, but some parents have remarked that it requires more effort to push than they expected.
If you are an active parent and want an affordable jogger, the Schwinn Interval is a good choice given all its amazing features. However, if you’re looking for an everyday stroller, you might want to reconsider joggers in our recommended light weight jogging stroller like the Graco Relay Connect. You may however find they are not as affordable as the Schwinn Interval. Otherwise, the stroller is perfect for parents who want to keep fit.
