The CYBEX Arc Trainer, which independent studies reveal allows users to burn more calories and train with more intensity while feeling less exertion, has been awarded yet another utility patent (US 7,568,999 B2), marking the 10th United States Patent the device has received to date.



Among the world’s most effective power training tools, the CYBEX Arc Trainer is making ellipticals and other cross trainers obsolete and has been widely credited with establishing a new category of premium cardiovascular training equipment. It has been shown through research conducted by the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse <http://media.cybexintl.com/cybexinstitute/research/research_ArcvAMTandEFX.pdf> to provide a significantly superior workout versus popular ellipticals and cross training devices.



“CYBEX is one of only a handful of companies using exercise science to develop its own unique and protected technology,” says Ray Giannelli, Senior Vice President, Research and Development. “The fact that we’ve generated 60 patents, with 28 of granted since 2001, speaks to the unique and beneficial function of the complete range of CYBEX strength and cardiovascular training equipment.”



The high-performance Arc Trainer is the only piece of fitness equipment to feature an AdaptivePower Training (APT) mode, which means the faster a user goes, the more resistance is encountered. Winner of the prestigious Nova7 "Product of the Year" award two years in a row, it also offers patent pending Same Side Forward (SSF) technology, an innovative motion in which arm and leg on the same side move together. This presents the ability to vary the workout intensity between upper and lower body, in addition to providing a constant ergonomic relationship between the arm and leg position throughout the incline adjustment range.



Showcasing a broad incline and resistance range, consistency in proper positioning and superior biomechanics, the Arc Trainer provides greater versatility than any cross trainer. This means users have the opportunity to meet their own personal strength, power, endurance, cardio and weight loss goals more effectively in less time.



MSRP: $6595-$8090 (depending on configuration)
