What does the Incline level on the Arc Trainer relate to?
Incline on the Arc Trainer relates to the incline of the path at the end positions of the pedal travel. At lower incline levels it will be more a striding motion whereas at the upper incline levels it will be more of a climbing type movement.
How is distance calculated on the Arc Trainer?
The Arc Trainer has a fixed stride length of 24” per stroke, or 48” per revolution. If you stride at an average of 120 SPM, that would be 240ft/minute or 2.72 mile per hour. Remember that you are always moving at an incline and this is why you will burn so many calories!
What is Adaptive Power Training on the 750 Arc Trainer?
Adaptive Power Training is a form of accommodating resistance. All you need to do in this mode is select your level and start working out. The faster you stride the harder it gets. The higher the level selected (1-20) the faster the resistance will ramp up as you stride faster.
To have an idea of Level 1 in Blue, level 10 in Red and 20 in green. Look at the table here: http://www.cybexintl.com/education/fitnesstools/FAQs/images/arcsImg1.jpg
How are calories calculated on the Arc Trainer?
Since the ACSM does not have calorie tables for the Arc Trainer CYBEX developed its own Calorie tables using a statistically significant population with both males and females ranging from 18-64 years of age. Calories are calculated using the Incline, Strides per minute at the current resistance level and body weight.
Why should I enter my body weight on the Arc Trainer?
Since the foot plates on the Arc Trainer are suspended and your entire weight is being held by those foot plates, entering your body weight allows the unit to adjust the torque according to your body weight. The default body weight is 150lbs.
