Cybex has designed an Arc Trainer that is ideally suited to hotels, corporate fitness facilities, and residential housing where the environment is less demanding than a commercial gym. The 425A has the ultimate versatility that the CYBEX Arc Trainer is known for in a smaller footprint.
Cross Trainers Compared to Elliptical Machines
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 elliptical’s are cross trainers but not all cross trainers are elliptical’s.
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 Trainer’s 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.
3 Machines in 1
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 Your 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.
