The Cybex 425A is far easier on the body than most exercise equipment. The trainer’s Reverse Arc motion technology places the user’s toe behind the knee, reducing stress on the joints while offering a complete range of motion for both the knee and hip. The machine’s Same Side Forward (SSF) orientation, meanwhile, ensures that the arm and leg on the same side move together, so that the relationship with the arm handle and footplate remains the same regardless of incline. This allows the user to always maintain an optimal posture during the exercise, which virtually eliminates back fatigue. Other cross trainers, by contrast, move the arms and legs in opposite directions, putting the body in a stressful position throughout the incline range. Finally, the Arc Trainer is equipped with long input arms that produce a more linear path, versus the shorter handles found on most equipment. This near-linear path minimizes painful wrist articulation, allowing you to get a better upper body workout and maintain good posture.
The 425A is technically a light commercial machine, meaning it excels in hotels, corporate environments, and residential housing complexes. However, it’s also suitable for home use as well, with a compact footprint and a versatile, load-dependent design.
