The new Cybex SPARC landed in
the UK this month and CrossFit stars Steven Fawcett and Sam Briggs were amongst
the first to try it out.
One of the first SPARCs to arrive
in the UK made its way up to CrossFit JST Wigan earlier this month, where top
female British CrossFitters including 2013 CrossFit Games Champion Sam Briggs
were taking part in an elite British training camp. Whilst there, they got to
try out the SPARC for themselves.
Using the SPARC for the first
time, Sam Briggs commented: “I could definitely feel good posterior chain
engagement, similar to the movement required when pulling a sled - it’s perfect
for conditioning sessions.”
Steven Fawcett, owner of CrossFit
JST and CrossFit Open (Europe) Champion 2015, was one of many who also praised SPARC and commented on its activation of the quads, glutes and hamstrings

New to the UK, SPARC has evolved
from Cybex’s revolutionary Arc Trainer and its patented Arc motion. As a
self-powered resisted cardio machine, SPARC trains for fat loss, and increased
muscle, strength and power.
Designed for high intensity
interval training and circuit workouts, it's biomechanically engineered design
means it is gentler on knee joints than traditional cross trainers and
ellipticals, encouraging users to work harder by minimising their perceived
SPARC’s intuitive settings and
design also make it easy to use and as its self-powered and cord free, the
SPARC can go anywhere in a training facility.
