Cybex 770A Lower Body Arc Trainer Review
Octane Zero Runner ZR7 Elliptical
The Cybex 770A Lower Body Arc Trainer is a versatile crosstrainer for use in clubs and elite home gyms. This lower-impact alternative to elliptical trainers combines speedy calorie burn with targeted muscle toning. A three-in-one fitness machine, it lets trainees tone their lower body while using an arc-shaped long glide, stride or stairclimbing motion. A special readout shows which muscles are being recruited too. Besides delivering fast results, the Arc Trainer offers the perk of “no elliptical knees” and is remarkably gentle on the whole body.
The 770A features the Cybex CardioTouch display. This touchscreen system gives access to workout and entertainment controls. Trainees can charge a mobile device, scroll through playlists, and set up workouts. Preset workouts are diverse and can be used at a wide range of challenge levels. They include two for weight loss, three for strength, two for shaping, two for power, and three for cardio including heart rate control. This console gets a 4-star rating out of 5. For five stars, additional workouts and high-def video entertainment are available with an optional 15.6” monitor and the Cybex GO digital platform. The premium monitor has three viewing modes: Exercise, Entertainment and Escape.
To help people focus on different muscle groups, the 770A has 21 incline choices and a graphic readout showing which muscles are being recruited most. By choosing different combinations of incline and resistance (max 900 Watts), a trainee can enter any of three exercise zones described as “Glide, Stride and Climb.” This machine also features reverse motion for extra muscle sculpting.
The console for the 770A Lower Body Arc Trainer has a magazine rack, a water bottle holder, two utility trays and a two-speed fan. Cybex Arc Trainers are available in virtually any frame color.
The Cybex 770A has a 10-year frame warranty, a three year parts warranty and a one year labor warranty. It’s built in the USA with excellent quality control.
