Cybex's complete line of cross trainers,
are scientifically tested to be gentler on your joints, burn 16% more calories than an elliptical, and are stronger and more durable than the leading ellipticals.
First introduced in 2003, the Arc Trainer’s footplates move in an arcuate path of motion as opposed to the elliptical pattern seen in elliptical trainers. The arc pattern of motion is a patented technology,designed to generate force only when the user is in the load-bearing phase of the gait cycle. This generates forces in the legs which balance the loading between the hip and knee joints. The result of this balanced loading design creates less stress on the knee joint and allows higher muscle training effect with lower perceived exertion.
The Arc Trainer is a weight-bearing form of exercise that is linked to prevention of osteoporosis. It is similar to a treadmill in its ability to induce heart muscle activity, but reduces the impact associated with running.
The Arc Trainer is adjustable for incline and resistance and has a variable stride rate. There are two versions of the Arc Trainer, a lower body version and a total body version. The Total Body Arc Trainer uses a same side forward pattern of motion where the arm and leg on the same side move together. This movement pattern allows the user to transfer work to their upper body without simultaneously increasing the work rate of the legs.
