The Cybex 525AT Arc Trainer is ideal for workout spaces where space is at a premium. It delivers the legendary calorie burn, performance, and flexibility of all Arc Trainers, but in a streamlined package that delivers outstanding value.
The Arc Trainer burns more calories than any other cross trainer or elliptical cross trainer tested. The science behind the Arc Trainers big calorie burn is the Arc motion. It engages the right muscles; quads and glutes that demand lots of energy from the body when they are called upon to work. That means big calorie burn. And because the Arc is demanding of the muscles not the joints, it can be used longer without putting a strain on the knees, hip or back.
Train for strength, power, endurance, cardio, and weight loss, the machine offers broad incline and resistance ranges which means it is really 3 machines in one. At the lower incline levels, the glide is a cross country skier. In the mid-range levels, the motion is a stride (like an elliptical except with proper positioning). At the high levels, the climb of a stepper or climber. Glide, Stride, and Climb. And lots of programs make the Arc Trainer fun to use.
