Nowadays, top fitness manufacturers are working harder than ever to keep pace with our mobile-savvy lifestyle. The new Cybex 525 Cardio Series does just that. In fact, with the new Cybex 525AT Arc Trainer, Cybex introduces a new intuitive console that incorporates QR (Quick Response) codes that let users integrate their smartphone or tablet for a customized workout experience. It’s a great innovation that makes the 525 perfect for residential buildings, hotels and other places where the likelihood of unsupervised usage is high.
What’s more, 525AT users still get the full-body workout expected from a Cybex Arc Trainer—which offers a range of incline and resistance options, providing three challenging workouts in one machine. Users can “glide” like they’re on cross-country skis, “stride” as with an elliptical or “climb” like a stepper/climber. Just how effective is this 3-in-1 workout? Research shows that the Cybex 525AT burns more calories than any other cross-trainer or elliptical tested.
Other features of the 525AT from Cybex include:
- iPod/iPhone integration for maximum user access and entertainment
- Contact grips for wireless heart rate monitoring
- Over 70 workout routines for weight loss, cardio and power goals
- Same Side Forward (SSF) handles for proper posture and form
- Optional high-definition E3 View monitor for optimal user enjoyment.
The new Cybex 525AT Arc Trainer offers a simple-to-use interface that facilitates the results-driven workout we’ve all come to expect from an Arc Trainer—and the reliability we’d expect from Cybex. It’s a worthy addition to the company’s already robust lineup.
