Cybex 750AT Arc Trainer Review
Curiosity will make you want to try Cybex 750AT, but it will be your experience with the machine that will make you want to use it over and over again. This is the common reaction of those who have used of this elliptical machine for the first time. The users are impressed by Cybex Arc Trainer’s efficiency even when it is classified as home-use gym equipment, when most others can’t meet their standards.
Cybex 750AT Pros
1. Easy Motion Feature
This provides the user a great workout experience without stressing the joints. The “reverse arc” motion feature of the machine allows the legs to move biomechanically in the correct way. This enables maximum workout exercise without stressing too much leg muscles. Because of this, the user can speed longer periods of time on the machine and thus, achieve better results compared to those who use other machines. This is possible because the arc of the elliptical machine makes sure the toes of the user is never placed behind his/her knee.
2. Flexible Stride Height
An elliptical machine should be flexible enough to accommodate the reach of the user’s legs. For this reason, it will be really helpful if the machine has an adjustable stride height. As a general description of the stride height, from the user’s manual of the machine, it is said that the “lower incline” level has a height similar to that of a country skier; a “mid-range incline”, that of a normal elliptical machine position; and, the “high incline, comparable to that what you do when you are climbing.
You can also program the machine to a “Hill Profile”; this gives you the sensation that you are climbing a small hill.
3. Natural Movement
The machine is specially designed to help the legs and the arms move naturally. This gives the body optimal chance to move. As a result, the body will get maximum exercise while keeping the user in a comfortable position.
4. Digital Display
For fast and easy tracking, the machine is equipped with a digital screen that displays the calories burnt of the user, the METs, the amount of power exerted, the speed and heart rate. The screen also displays the current settings of the machine.
5. Self-powered Operation
Surprisingly, this Cybex 750AT does not need a power cord to operate.
6. Strong Customer Support
One of the strongest assets of Cybex is their costumer support system. Anytime that their clients feel the need to reach them for specific questions, they will be right there for you to help in in every way that they can.
Cybex 750AT Cons
1. Cool down Feature
One problem that I see with this machine is its lack of a cool down function. It is always helpful if the machine which is used allows the user to slowly cool down prior to stopping as this lessens the stress experienced by the body. Immediately jumping off the machine after a heavy work out might result to severe physical trauma.
This machine is also not so safe to be used with children and pets around. This machine can be dangerous because of its moving parts.
3. Gadget Tray
Most people nowadays prefer to work out with their iPod on. The problem with Cybex is that it does not have a tray where gadgets can be played. Although this can be solved by simply using an arm band that can hold the user’s gadgets.
This machine is a very good elliptical machine and it is also quite affordable. Majority of the negative issues about this elliptical machine are almost negligible and are quite easy to solve. On the other hand, the positive features of Cybex can’t be easily found in other elliptical machines. So as a conclusion, this product is highly recommendable, especially to those who are new to working out.
