The Arc Trainer is load dependent which means that resistance is scaled to the user's weight. Two exercisers, one who weighs 250 lbs and the other 125 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 Motion
This is what makes an Arc an Arc. The unique Reverse Arc motion - a patented advanced stride technology - never places the user’s 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 compact footprint saves space and the elegant design is inviting in any environment.
Same Side Forward
With Same Side Forward (SSF), the arm and leg on the same side move together, so that the relationship with the arm handle and footplate remains the same regardless of incline. This allows the user to always maintain optimal posture during exercise which virtually eliminates back fatigue. Other cross trainers, with arms and legs moving in opposite directions, lack the ability to maintain correct body positioning throughout the incline range.
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 Trainer 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”.
An exceptionally broad resistance range lets you train as easy as you like or as hard as you need to.
Long Input Arms
The Arc Trainer is equipped with long input arms with a more linear path versus the shorter handles found on other cross trainers. This near linear path minimizes painful wrist articulation allowing you to get a better upper body workout and maintain good posture. Additionally the arms feature forward outboard handles allowing you to push harder with your upper body while opposing lower body muscles are engaged resulting in more muscles working at once and therefore more calories being burned in less time.
Simple and intuitive to use, the Arc Trainer programs have a convenient split level display, HR monitoring, and an exceptional range of choices to satisfy even the most diverse training needs.
