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.
Cybex Arc Trainers and elliptical are both cardio machines which eliminate the shock caused by running. It’s really three machines in one. At lower incline levels, it glides like a cross-country skier. In the middle, it strides like an elliptical. At higher levels, it’s a climber.
Unlike other cardio machines, the Cybex Arc Trainer avoids boring repetitive routines. By allowing foot movement in any direction, you can add variety and pace changes. This will also help keep your motivation level high and the pounds dropping off.
The Cybex Arc Trainer can either be set manually, where you control the variety of pace, motion, and resistance, or you can use the weight loss program. This is set to use light resistance and incline and then increase in intervals of intensity. This way you can work out longer and shed more calories without becoming tired.

Cybex Arc Trainers produces less stress on the knees than walking, and is ideal for general exercisers, those looking for a challenging HIIT workout, and everyone in between.
Most ellipticals only burn calories and don’t create and build muscle. While fat loss is important, build muscle is going to pay off in the long run. The more muscle mass you have, the more calories your body will naturally use throughout the day.
