13 Dec 12 Days of AHF Christmas: Cybex Arc Trainers
Editor’s note: To help get our loyal Internet followers ready for Christmas, and let them know about the many great deals available through At Home Fitness, I’m revealing the 12 days of AHF Christmas. Here’s Day 4:
“On the fourth day of Christmas, At Home Fitness sent to me Four Cybex arc trainers, Three 3G Cardio vibration machines, Two home gyms, And A sales associate with a great fitness plan for me.”
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. Cybex Arc Trainers offers a commercial-quality cross trainer with the patented Arc design that gives fast fitness results. Train for weight loss, strength and power on one machine.
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, it’s the “climb” of a stepper or climber.
You will Glide, Stride, and Climb on an Arc Trainer. And lots of programs also help to make the Arc Trainer lots of fun to use.
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.
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.
