Shaping Your Glutes With The Arc Trainer

Posted on Oct 21, 2015 8:30:00 AM


The simple answer is that you should plan on a mixture of strength training and cardio to build muscles in your glutes and shape your bottom. There is no magical exercise that will ‘tone’ or ‘shape’ a muscle, but performing exercises that effectively target the glutes in combination with a reduction in body fat will make these muscles appear more prominent. There is always the potential for issues whenever one is training for aesthetics - your genetics will always play a role. It is possible that certain body ‘shapes’ may not be possible for some people. But, if you focus on training to be fit, happy, and healthy, then looking better will be an added bonus.

Posted on Jul 10, 2015 10:03:00 AM

The Arc Trainer is a very unique device. It blends resistance and cardio in a workout that challenges your power as well as your endurance. This “resisted cardio” approach to training is perfect for High Intensity Interval Training, but it can be challenging to figure out how to set it up for aerobic training sessions. This is probably why the most frequently asked questions I get on the Arc Trainer is, “Where should I set the resistance?”

Battling Back to Triathlons with Cybex

Posted on Feb 27, 2015 7:38:00 AM

Recently I had the opportunity to speak with Taryn Ferrara, a 26-year old triathlete who works at Atlantic Health System in Morristown, New Jersey. Taryn was a Division I swimmer at Binghamton University and after college she began to run marathons, competing in her last one in 2013 right here in Boston.

Following her marathon success, she began training for triathlons, with 2014 being her first competitive season. It was also a season where she endured a very serious injury: a labral tear in her hip. I spoke with Taryn about her pre-injury training, the process of diagnosing the injury, and how the Arc Trainer was part of her rehab as she battles back onto the triathlon circuit in 2015.
