The Cybex 610A cross trainer has the fantastic features of its predecessor, the 600A Arc Trainer. The 610 is the perfect gym equipment for people wanting to improve their cardiovascular endurance and work out both their upper and lower body without putting a lot of stress on the hip joints, ankles, and knees. It has a wide range of resistance from 0 to 900 watts. And it can accommodate individuals weighing as heavy as 400 pounds.
Features at a Glance:
- 82 inches long, 30 inches wide, and 59 inches talls
- Uses front-drive and 2-belt system
- Stride length of 24 inches
- With seven workout programs
- Can monitor heart rate and display readouts like calories burned, distance covered, strides per minute, resistance, and total workout time
The Cybex 610A holds a lot of similarities to the 600A. In terms of physical features, the 610 and 600A basically have the same dimensions except for the longer body of the 610 at 82 inches compared to the 67 inch frame of the 600A. Both pieces of gym equipment make use of the front-drive and 2-belt system, with an Eddy current brake resistance to boot. And the 610A can display the workout program, distance covered, calories burned, strides per minute, time, resistance, and heart rate of the exerciser in the same way that the 600A can provide these vital bits of information. However, there are some differences between the 610A and the 600A. One is the price, with the 610A several hundreds of dollars more expensive compared to its older version. Likewise, the 610A has an innovative feature that the 600A does not have. The 610A cross trainer has arm handles with grip design allowing the exerciser to put more emphasis on the muscles being exercised. It cannot be argued that the 610A is a more advanced version of the Cybex 600A cross trainer.
