Getting Started Series: Baseline Aerobic Resistance On The Arc Trainer

Posted on Jul 10, 2015 2:03:00 PM

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 12:38:00 PM

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.

From Fat To Fit On The Arc Trainer

Posted on Jan 30, 2015 12:00:00 PM

From time to time, we receive some truly inspirational messages and stories of success from users of Cybex equipment. It may be someone who used a Cybex product to help rehab an injury, meet a weight-loss goal, or finally found the product that kept them coming back to the gym after years of failed attempts. We love getting these stories and when we get the opportunity to share them with you, that makes them even better.

Recently, we received a very touching note from Billy Martin, who has dealt with physical issues for years and also suffered the loss of his son while serving in the Navy in 2011. When most people would use these ailments and loss as a reason to "let go," Billy uses them as motivation to change his life and be active. He uses the Arc Trainer at his local Snap Fitness, dropping over 140 pounds and relieving much of the pain that ailed his daily life. His story, in his words, is below. We hope you find it as inspiring as we have.
