Burn 16% more calories...just do this!

Did you know that the CYBEX Arc Trainer burns 16% more calories than an elliptical? 16%...does that really matter? Why should you care? Well how about this:

Let’s put this into hard numbers.  If an average person works out 5 days a week and does 1 hour of moderate exercise a day on an elliptical, at an average of 625 calories burned per hour, he will burn 3125 calories a week.  In comparison, if that same person did the same level of exercise, for the same amount of time on the Arc Trainer he will burn 3625 calories.  That’s 500 more describe the imagecalories for the SAME time, SAME effort and SAME perceived exertion…all they did was use the Arc Trainer instead of an elliptical. After one year the Arc Trainer user would burn 26,000 more calories than the elliptical user…the equivalent of over 7 pounds of fat! (1 pound of fat equals 3500 calories)

So let me ask you again…16%? Does that really matter?
