CROSS TRAINERS VS ELLIPTICALS
Not all cross trainers are created equal. Cross training refers to working various parts of the body by combining different exercises in a variety of ways. Typically one activity or sport trains certain parts of the body but not others. Cross training aims to eliminate this. Cross trainers are generally non-impact machines sometimes called ellipticals which refers to a specific motion. All ellipticals are cross trainers but not all cross trainers are ellipticals.
BURNS MORE CALORIES
More results in less time. Research shows that the Cybex Arc Trainer burns more calories than any other cross trainer or elliptical cross trainer tested. The science behind the Arc Trainers big calorie burn is the Arc motion. It engages the right muscles quads and glutes that demand lots of energy from the body when they are called upon to work. That means big calorie burn. And because the Arc is demanding of the muscles, not the joints, it can be used longer without putting a strain on the knees, hip or back.
THREE MACHINES IN ONE
Train for strength, power, endurance, cardio, and weight loss. The Cybex Arc Trainer offers broad incline and resistance ranges which mean it is really 3 machines in one. At the lower incline levels, the glide is a cross country skier. In the mid-range levels, the motion is a stride (like an elliptical except with proper positioning). At the high levels, the climb of a stepper or climber. Glide, Stride, and Climb. And lots of programs also make the Arc Trainer fun to use.
EASY ON THE JOINTS
No more elliptical knees. Unlike other cross trainers on the market the patented Arc pattern of motion allows the hip and knee to move synchronously while the foot stays under the knee reducing joint pains and providing a more comfortable workout.
CardioTouch display offers a touch screen command for workout and entertainment control. Users can easily set up a workout, charge an iPod or iPhone, scroll through playlists, albums, artists, podcasts, and more.
Innovative Muscle Map displays the intensity of the exercise for individual muscle groups based on the users selection of stride rate, resistance and incline to aid them in precisely targeted results.
Two speed fan with adjustable venting to keep the user cool.
The Arc is load dependent which means that resistance is scaled to the user's weight. Two exercisers, a man who weighs 230 lbs. and the other a woman who weighs 120 lbs., both get the same workout when they enter the same program levels and their own weight. The perfect workout, and only Cybex has it.
REVERSE ARC MOVEMENT
This is what makes the Arc an Arc. The unique Reverse Arc motion, a patented advanced stride technology, never places the users toe behind the knee (when the toe moves behind the knee significantly more stress is applied to the knee joint). The Reverse Arc Motion moves legs in a biomechanically correct pathway - reducing stress at the knee while offering a complete range of motion for both the knee and hip.
The wide range of resistance and incline makes the Arc Trainer unique. From the deconditioned to professional athletes, it is right for everyone! Using this broad incline and resistance range, anyone using this product will notice they have the ability to emphasize specific muscle groups, whether at higher incline levels as a stepping motion to work the quads or lower levels of incline with increased resistance to firm up the butt!
GLIDE, STRIDE, AND CLIMB ZONES
The Arc offers three exercise zones for the ultimate in variety: Low position is for the Glide; Medium position called the Stride and High position for the Climb.
The 770A Arc Trainers unique workout selections allow the user to select their workout based specifically on their goals. Workouts include two Weight Loss, three Strength, two Shaping, and three Cardio including Heart Rate Control, as well as two Power workouts that include the Arc Trainers unique Adaptive Power mode.
