The Cybex 770 Arc Trainer’s Dynamic Duo

The researchers at Cybex were stumped. Their challenge? Design the next generation of Arc Trainers to overcome users’ tendencies to slow down as incline and resistance increased.

With the new Cybex 770 Arc, they found the solution: Dual RPM meters that apply motivational “treadmill psychology” to the Arc Trainer workout.

Featured side-by-side on the 770’s user interface, one RPM meter displays actual user RPMs, while the other shows recommended RPMs for each Arc Trainer program segment. The psychology driving this upgrade takes its cue from treadmill user behavior: Just as treadmill users maintain their pace so as not to fall off the machine, Cybex researchers found that 770 users actually push harder by visually monitoring their pace to meet their goals—even when the going gets tough.

So, whether you’re working to keep your workouts challenging—or you’re a personal trainer searching for the right machine to motivate your clients—the twin RPM meters featured on the Cybex 770 Arc Trainer provide just the dynamic you require.
