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!
