The Arc is load dependent
which means that resistance is scaled to the user's weight. Two
exercisers, a man who weighs 230 lbs and the other a woman who weighs
120 lbs, both get the same workout when they enter the same program
levels and their own weight. The perfect workout ... and only CYBEX has
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 stress on the back. Other cross trainers, with arms and legs moving in opposite directions, lack the ability to maintain correct body positioning throughout the incline range.
Reverse Arc Movement
This is what makes the 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 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 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
Quick Start, Manual, three
Weight Loss, three Cardio, two Strength and Heart Rate Control. Programs
have 10 levels and control both incline and resistance.
