The Cybex product line includes a full range of both strength training and cardio training machines sold worldwide under the Cybex brand. Equipment is designed and manufactured based on extensive research and testing conducted at the Cybex Institute, leading to the production of some of the most biomechanically sound and most effective fitness equipment available.

Cybex's line of cross trainers, The Arc Trainer, is scientifically tested to be gentler on your joints, burn 16% more calories than an elliptical, and is stronger and more durable than the leading ellipticals. On the Arc Trainer, the legs travel in a biomechanically correct path of motion. There’s less stress on the knees and more activation of the glutes and hamstrings.

CROSS TRAINERS VS ELLIPTICALS

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.

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 Trainers 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.

THREE MACHINES IN ONE

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 THE 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.
