What Muscles Does the Cybex Arc Trainer Work?

What Muscles Does the Cybex Arc Trainer Work?

The Cybex Arc Trainer is a stationary glute machine that works out your lower body. When using it, you stand upright on its footplates and balance yourself with the moving arm bars. This is a dynamic exercise machine with plenty of adjustable options, so read on to learn about how you can use it to get the best results.

Building Glute Muscles

One of the great things about the Arc Trainer is its versatility. This cross training machine has tons of adjustable features and power levels. Because it focuses on your lower body, it’s a worthy investment for those looking to train their glutes specifically.

According to research done by Cybex, your Arc Trainer can be adjusted to target different muscle groups.

A low incline setting, between 0 and 10, will focus the burn on your glutes. Higher incline settings from 10 to 20 will shift your body and the result will be a workout that benefits your quadriceps.

For the most effective glute workout, it is recommended that you keep your Arc Trainer at a low incline and keep your rate of movement high.

Benefits of Cross Training

Cross training machines like the Arc Trainer let you work out your whole body at once. This kind of machine burns fat quickly and gives a good cardio workout, but it’s also useful for strength training.

By using the arm bars on the Arc Trainer, you can put weight on your arms and tone them while you move your legs in an arc movement below. If you keep up rigorous motion in both your arms and your legs, it’s easy to build muscle over time.

Depending on the angle, you can work out your glutes, hamstrings, or focus solely on your quadriceps. For best results, you can switch your routine to focus on different exercises (and thus target different muscle groups) per day.

Weight Loss with the Cybex Arc Trainer

One of the best things about the Arc Trainer is that you can burn a lot of calories in a single session, and the machine has programs to help you meet specific goals. Indeed, the Cybex Arc Trainer is one of the most effective pieces of fitness equipment for burning calories.

To really focus on burning fat, you’ll want to keep up the intensity of your exercise. Since the Arc Trainer comes with a screen that shows a detailed readout of your heart rate, strides per minute, and the overall time of your session. The resistance on the machine is load-dependent, meaning that it can automatically adjust to your weight.

Cybex suggests using interval training both as a general exercise and as a way to burn fat. During interval training, you’ll switch off between doing intense, fast movement and then rest with slow, low-resistance movement.

The machine lends itself to interval training, because you can adjust the settings easily. Try using the Adaptive Power setting, which increases resistance as you pick up speed, and lowers resistance as you slow down.

Arc-uate Path Exercise

The Arc Trainer has several advantages over an elliptical machine, and many of them have to do with the difference in body movement and how your weight is distributed on the machine.

The mechanics of the Trainer are like an elliptical machine, but the footplates have a different path of movement. Instead of moving in an elliptical, oval-shaped path, the footplates move in an arc pattern, guiding your body into an arc of movement. This movement path actually reduces stress on your knees and joints.

The machine only generates force when you’re in a load-bearing stance, which evenly distributes the pressure between your hips and knee joints. When the pressure is shared between those areas, your joints are under less stress.

There’s also the added bonus of a more rigorous session with more intense muscle training. The overall effect is better fitness with less stress on your body.

Adjustable Settings

To get the most out of your machine, learn about how the various settings can be a tool for having a better training session. When you adjust the incline, you can target different muscle groups in your lower body. That setting offers versatility, and it’s helpful when you want to do more specific kinds of training, like focusing on your glutes.

The power settings are also adjustable, and can impact how you use the machine. For example, the Constant Power settings keep up the same level of power, even if you slow down or speed up. The machine does this by adjusting its resistance in relation to your speed.

When you slow down, the machine automatically increases the resistance so you’re still getting a certain level of rigor. On the other end, it lowers the resistance level when you start to go faster.

You can take a look at the Arc Trainer manual and their website for more detailed training suggestions.

Cybex Arc Trainer Vs. Treadmill

The Arc Trainer and a treadmill are both useful exercise machines, but they serve very different purposes in terms of your workout.

Treadmills let you walk or run at your own pace, and you can adjust the incline for a more or less rigorous workout. Compared to the Arc Trainer, it’s a fairly simple design. It’s a cardio workout, but it doesn’t offer much in terms of strength training. The Trainer is designed to offer the kind of resistance that builds up muscle in your lower body, from your glutes to your quads.

Treadmills do let you customize your routine to a certain extent, with adjustable speed and adjustable incline. However, the Trainer will allow you to do strength training in addition to cardio.

Should You Get an Arc Trainer?

Is this machine right for you?

If you want to train your lower body thoroughly, this fitness equipment will deliver. It can help you get the glutes of your dreams, and build up powerful quadriceps. If you want to sculpt your arms at the same time, the arm bars can help you get full-body motion in, so you can tone your arms and core at the same time.

This machine also has plenty of personalization options, including preset programs that guide your calorie burning session or help you with interval training. There are a lot of ways to use your Trainer machine, including the tips in this article.

Cybex 610A Arc Trainer Review

The elliptical crosstrainer is a staple in the modern gym so it is not surprising that many companies have taken their own spin on this highly popular machine. Cybex’s take on revolutionizing the elliptical comes to fruition in the form of the Cybex 610A Total Body Arc Trainer. This machine is versatile; it is easy to use for workout novices but can also deliver an intense workout to any fitness fanatic.



The 610A Arc Trainer is the follow-up to the 600A Arc Trainer which won the Nova7 Best Product Award. In addition to maintaining all of the 600A’s features, the 610A improves upon its predecessor in every way and once again won the Nova7 Best Product Award for a second year in a row.

Cybex is one of the leaders in fitness so it is not surprising that this commercial grade unit delivers the well known durability that they’re known for. The Arc Trainer was designed to combine elements of an elliptical cross-trainer, a climber and a skier to offer a fully engaging workout. Fortunately, this 610A arc trainer was also designed to be a low impact workout machine. It emphasizes high performance but also minimizes stress on the joints.


The Cybex 610A Arc Trainer comes with the patented Same Side Forward (SSF) motion that helps to coordinate both the upper and lower body movements in order to ensure that the exerciser has correct posture regardless of the incline the machine is set at. The motion created by the SSF also allows the user to shift focus on either their upper or lower body. Of course, they can also choose to work out both their arms and legs equally for a balanced routine.

In regards to the upper body, the 610A is designed to keep the wrists in a low stress position while allowing the arm to execute a complete and natural full range of motion, especially for the shoulder. The handles may also look odd but they’re actually designed that way for a great reason. They’re contoured to offer several user grip positions to allow for a comfortable workout. There are also contact heart rate grips integrated into the arms to help the user track their progress during their workout.


This arc trainer’s resistance ranges from 0 to 900 watts to accommodate a wide variety of users from different fitness levels. Beginners can use it to warm up and dedicated athletes can use it for an extremely high intensity workout.

The footplates offer a bilateral reciprocal movement which creates a natural and relaxed motion that does not strain the joints. The 610A is also biomechanically designed to lower the chance of injuries by not placing high loads on the muscle.

The 610A arc trainer also has an adjustable incline which helps create variety in training. On lower incline settings, the arc trainer delivers modest hip and knee motions. Higher inclines offer an increase in hip and knee motion.


While it may not be the newest Cybex Arc Trainer model out on the market today, the 610A still delivers all the essentials for a bargain price. This model is now on sale on our website. Visit our new arrivals page for more information!

Cybex 750A Arc Trainer Review

If you’re tired of the standard treadmills, bikes and elliptical crosstrainers at the gym, the Cybex 750A Arc Trainer is another great alternative cardio machine to help you burn away those calories. The Cybex 750A (lower body) combines elements of a skier, climber and hiker to create both a fun and challenging workout in any environment. The arc trainer is biomechanically designed to deliver the most efficient low impact workout to the user.



The Cybex 750A lower body Arc Trainer is a commercial grade machine meaning that it excels in the most demanding environment and is highly unlikely to be damaged or malfunction. Even though it would perform excellently in a gym, the Cybex 750A is also great for home users. Any fitness-minded home users can easily add the arc trainer to their home because of its impact footprint and its versatile, load-dependent design. Load-dependent means that the resistance is actually scaled to the user’s weights. For example, two exercisers, one who weighs 250 lbs and another one 125 lbs, will both get the same workout if they enter the same program level and their weight. This versatile programming makes the Cybex 750A arc trainer accessible to users of all fitness levels and sizes.


The arc trainer comes equipped with an independent floating pedal mechanism and long handlebars with siderails. These two features allow for a much more comfortable workout. The resistance/incline levels are also adjustable which allows users to perform higher intensity workouts. Every 750A comes with a 24” stride length.

Users can also track their workout with the built-in contact heart rate monitor. Another great feature is that this arc trainer is self powered so you don’t have to worry about electrical compatibility or your power bill. Entertainment wise, it is iPod compatible with audio/video playback, headphone jacks, Nike+iPod enabled and there is also an option for an additional LCD TV attachment.


The resistance ranges up to 900 watts and there are 21 incline levels. Maximum user weight is 400lbs. Users are able to track calories, calories/hour, METs, watts, strides per minute, distance and heart rate on the display readouts. The lower display shows time, incline and resistance level.


If you are looking to mix it up on the cardio side of your workout, the Cybex 750A Arc trainer is definitely a great option you should consider. It’s compact and introduces new movements that you don’t usually perform on a standard elliptical or treadmill. We have some now in stock so check it out on our website!

Cybex 550T Treadmill Review

We previously wrote a review on the Cybex 530T treadmill as part of our Black Friday specials and now we are moving on to the next iteration of Cybex treadmills, the Cybex 550T treadmill. Similar to the 530T, these treadmills are also commercial grade and built to endure heavy commercial gym level usage. Unlike other commercial grade treadmills though, the Cybex 550T treadmill is actually quite compact in both height and width. This makes it a great unit for home since it does not take up much floor space. There are many great features to this treadmill so we’ll go through each component.



The compact size of this treadmill makes it look very low and clean, like a sports car you can run on. The reduced size also means that there is a low step-up which is great for new exercisers or people with lower mobility. The key to the Cybex 550T treadmill’s great design is its emphasis on minimalism. There are not a lot of protruding parts or unnecessary bells and whistles cluttering up the design of the treadmill.


Just because the 550T is accessible to the rookie exerciser does not mean that it does not come equipped to satisfy even the most experienced of runners. The treadmill comes equipped with a variety of different programs that can be changed on the fly. If you want to raise or lower the intensity of your current workout, you can do so without restarting the entire workout. The console comes programmed with seven different exercise programs.


The Cybex 550T comes equipped with a split level display that allows users to use what they want and when. The split level display has two different levels. The lower level displays time, speed and incline which is constantly visible. Other information that can be viewed on the console include distance, calories, calories/hour, pace, METs and heart rate.

Other Features:

This treadmill also comes with a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) controller. What this does is basically uses digital feedback for high-speed stability and constant speed control to create a smooth running experience. If you’re worried this will rack up your electricity bill, luckily the treadmill also maxims effectiveness for economical power consumption.

The 550T treadmill has been perfectly designed to optimize a runner’s stride. Its running deck is soft at landing, hard in the middle and rigid at toe-off to imitate the precise body mechanics of a runner. All Cybex machines also come equipped with the Safety Sentry, which can determine if a runner is actually on the treadmill or not and will stop the belt after a pre-selected waiting period to help ensure that members are safe and secure.


Cybex does it again with another great addition to their treadmill line. You will not be able to find another commercial grade treadmill this compact, durable and effective at this price point. We cannot speak for our competitors but we’re selling this treadmill for $499 which is 90% off MSRP! To learn more about this treadmill, visit the Cybex 550T treadmill page on our website.

Cybex 530T Treadmill Review

Today we will be reviewing our biggest Black Friday special, the Cybex 530T treadmill. Not only is this treadmill extremely affordable for a commercial grade treadmill, more so with our discount pricing, but it also has a plethora of great features and high durability.


The Cybex 530T treadmill is one of the easiest treadmills to use. It has a convenient “Quick Start” key that lets the user enter the manual program with a single touch. It also uses a live keyboard which allows the user to change the program or any setting without starting over, which can help the user create a dynamic workout without interruptions. The treadmill comes preloaded with a variety of great workout programs including quick start, manual, 5k run, 9 holes, heart rate control, weight loss and cardio programs which will keep the user engaged and interested. There is also a heartrate monitor built into the contact grips for further fitness tracking.

Another great feature, usually reserved for expensive higher end treadmills, is the decline/incline elevation feature. You can easily increase the intensity of your workout by using the incline, or decrease it by using the decline feature.

This treadmill also has an effective suspension system that absorbs the impact of landing and provides a stable running base for maximum efficiency. There is also an option to attach a television if you want to multi-task and watch your favorite shows while burning some calories.

Cybex has also implemented a safety system into its 530T treadmill. It is known as “Safe Sentry” and it can determine whether you are at the treadmill or not. After a certain period of inactivity (determined by the user), the belt will stop in order to keep users safe.

This is easily one of the best commercial grade treadmills that you’ll find for such a bargain price. These machines are extremely durable and will last you for life. If you wish to purchase one or look at more pictures, visit the Cybex 530T Treadmill page!

5 Benefits of Using a Stepper or Stepmill

One of the most iconic cinematic fitness moments is Rocky Balboa’s training montage and the final scene of him running up the stairs of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Although a little overdramatic, Rocky did have the right idea in mind for training. Running up and down stairs can be extremely beneficial in a variety of ways. But before elaborating on the benefits, let’s first define what a stepmill is. A stepmill generally has three revolving steps that are attached to a belt. There are generally different resistance levels to increase the difficulty of workouts. Many of them also come with handles for balance, but it isn’t necessary to use them. If you’re looking for a high quality stepmill, it is best to buy from the trusted StairMaster brand. A stepper is a little different from a stepmill but offers many similar benefits. Many steppers simulate climbing stars with alternating foot platforms that raise and lower your legs. Now on to the benefits:


1.       It’s low impact

Using a stepmill or a stepper has significantly less impact on your body than running on a treadmill. Although running is also a wonderful way to get cardio, the high intensity may start to cause strain on the knee due to the high impact caused by your feet hitting the ground. You also have the benefit of moving at slower speeds without sacrificing too much cardio, if any, since you’re always on an incline and each step actually burns more calories than walking.

2.       It burns the calories

Contrary to popular belief, just because an exercise is low impact doesn’t mean that it doesn’t burn as many calories. Using a stepmill or a stepper actually burns more calories because you have to lift your entire body weight with every step you take. This allows for a higher rate of calories burned and less time spent working out with the same amount, if not more, results as other exercises.

3.       Tones the lower body

A stepmill or stepper uses nearly every muscle in the lower body. By consistently using the machine and repeatedly training, you can tone your calves, hamstrings, gluteal muscles and quadriceps. Many women are afraid of becoming big and bulky by working out, but fortunately the stepmill/stepper is perfect for building lean muscle while also burning fat. Nearly all machines come with resistance options to increase and decrease difficulty which allows users of all fitness levels to be able to use the machine.

4.       Avoid Faceplants

This may seem like a minor benefit, but the psychological benefits of knowing that you won’t be falling flat on your face in the gym is wonderful. It allows you to work out more intensely without fear of injury. This is the case because most steppers/stepmills come with arms/rails on the side of the machine for stability. While many other machines also come with these handrails, using the handrail on a stepper does not allow you to “cheat” which helps keep your workouts efficient.

5.       Helps train natural movements

Moving up an incline is a very natural action in many fitness routines. Consistently using a stepmill or stepper to workout will help train your core and allows you to hike and climb more efficiently. It also increases your overall stamina and endurance so nearly every activity throughout your day will be easier for you. Also, it’ll allow you to dramatically run up office stairs at a quicker rate.

Now that you’ve read up on all the benefits of the wonderful steppers and stepmachines, you’re probably wondering where you can buy such an amazing machine for a low price. Fortunately, Primo Fitness sells commercial grade used stepmills and used stair steppers for wholesale prices. So check them out today and reap all the great benefits!
