What is a Cybex Arc Trainer?

The Cybex Arc Trainer is essentially the answer from Cybex to the Precor Elliptical. The purpose of the machine is to provide a completely zero impact exercise while burning loads of calories and stimulating compound muscle groups including the central core.

 

What does the Arc Trainer do for your body?

The upper body motion offers resistance to your arms and can engage your core including abdominals and lower back area. Hand positioning can also help engage the front and rear deltoids as well as the trapezius muscle. This cardio machine can leverage an incline level to target the lower body much more than traditional ellipticals.  

 

What kind of machine is the Arc Trainer?

The Arc Trainer is a stationary exercise machine with zero impact and is a registered trademark of Cybex International, Inc. This machine was introduced in 2003 and has a patented movement to drive highly intense yet fluid movement in a compound aerobic workout.  Leveraging the upper body and lower body simultaneously along with both incline and resistance make this exercise machine vastly superior meaning a more effective workout, more efficient weight loss and effective cardio exercise.

 

What are the benefits of using the Arc Trainer?

This gym equipment is essentially 3-in-1. You can train for endurance, cardio, strength or weight loss (or all of the above). Total body arc trainers target both the upper and lower body There is a vast selection of incline and resistance ranges incorporating a stepper, elliptical and bike movement without impact on your joints at all yet much more exciting to ride than a rowing machine, elliptical trainers or recumbent bikes.  

 

How many calories do you burn on the Arc Trainer?

A case study of 16 healthy men and women on each machine found that research subjects burned 10.8 calories per minute when compared to the Adaptive Motion Trainer (from Precor) which burned 9.9 calories vs 9.3 calories per minute on a more standard elliptical. The Cybex Arc Trainer outperformed all of the other machines on a calorie per time basis for any zero impact exercise.  This far exceeds exercise bikes and the Cybex elliptical machine means a more efficient calorie burn and use of your time in the gym.
