Cybex produces a wide range of equipment including:
Treadmills are the bread and butter of cardio machines. They are a simple moving platform with an adjustable speed and incline for limitless training options. They can be used for low-intensity or high-intensity cardio workouts. Users of all skill levels, ages, and sizes can build endurance, lose weight, and improve cardiovascular health by training on a treadmill.
Treadmills are effective for all types of cardio and conditioning, from walking and jogging, to high intensity interval training. Treadmills are a great option if you are training for a race, or trying to lose weight. For those seeking to lose weight, treadmills are an effective option because they are weight-bearing, meaning that you bear the whole weight of your body while using them, and thus can burn more calories during your workout.
While using the treadmill keep in mind not to run too close to the consul, and that it is better not to look up at a TV while using the machine. Looking up to watch a screen while using a treadmill can hurt your neck, and harm your running form.
Ellipticals are a great cardio machine option for beginners. These cardio machines are low-impact and easy to navigate. Simply step onto the large pedals, start moving, and you’re ready to go.
Similarly to treadmills, ellipticals have an adjustable resistance to offer more options for your workout. Increase the resistance to push yourself more, or use a lower resistance when first starting out to get acquainted with the movement. Start Moderately and increase your resistance and incline later as you build endurance.
Ellipticals are easy to use for beginners and they are easier on the hips and knees than treadmills are. They are good if you struggle with balance and can be a fantastic option if you are recovering from an injury for an effective low-impact workout.
While using an Elliptical it is important to maintain proper form. Keep your back straightened, abs tucked, and pelvis forward.
Also referred to as stationary bikes, or indoor cycle machines. These machines offer a seat, pedals, handles, and a consul. Just like riding a bike, you start by adjusting your machine to your height. Next, strap your feet into the foot straps, and adjust the consul to your specific workout needs.
While the energy demand from Spin bikes is not as high as running, as on a treadmill, they provide a calorie-burning heart pumping challenge and total body workout. They strengthen your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and hip flexors.
Spin bikes are not high impact, and they are easier on the joints than treadmills. They are a great option if you have a sore upper body, if you have back or lower body injuries, or if you want long duration endurance training.
Rowers, also known as rowing machines, mimic the motion of rowing a boat. They consist of a sliding seat and handle on a retractable row cable. Your feet stay in place while you use most of your body to work the machine. Rowers have more muscular activation than many other gym machines.
Rowers are very versatile and can be used for aerobic training, anaerobic training, or muscle recovery. Rowers can also be a great option if you have less time, because you can get a solid workout in, in as little as 20 minutes. The higher your stroke rate, the more calories that you’ll burn on a rower. On the flip side, you can also use a rower for a low intensity workout as rowers have a low impact on joints. They can be a great option if you’re sore from yesterday’s workout.
While doing a total body workout, keep in mind that proper form is important on a rower to make the most of your training and to avoid any joint strain.
Arc Trainers mimic hiking and target the lower body. They look similar to an elliptical, but function differently. Arc Trainers only generate force during the weight bearing cycle of your stride, which makes them easier on the joints. Similarly to the elliptical, Arc trainers are also low-impact.
Arc trainers put minimal stress on the knee, ankle, hip and vertebrae, while burning more calories than the standard elliptical. Keep in mind with the arc trainers, that proper form is again important to prevent injuries and to maintain low joint impact.
Functional Trainers are an extremely versatile piece of exercise equipment. Functional Trainers allow you to work the most muscle groups in the widest variety of ways and they are safe for all age groups capable of resistance training. A Functional Trainer is a piece of equipment that incorporates multiple cables (usually 2) and attachments so you can perform any directional movements such as pulls, flys, curls, and everything in between.
Functional Trainers make it easier on the gym-goer as these machines do not require a spotter when performing heavy lifts. They also allow for the user to work with a great range of motion, giving more versatility to their workout. These cable machines allow you to use every different muscle as you can easily switch up the plane of movement.
When using a Functional Trainer you have a variety of options to meet all of your training needs. Functional Trainers are a great option for your gym as they encourage you to not just stick to one repetitive motion but to engage different parts of the body with a full range of motion for training exercises that will enhance your well-being.
Squat Racks and Power Racks
Squat Racks and Power Racks are a helpful workout station for barbell exercises. A rack is designed to support weight when doing squat variations. Two adjustable metal posts comprise the squat stand or rack, which support the barbell.
Power Racks, also referred to as power cages, have four feet connected by four metal bars overhead. Power Racks have three stabilizing legs and two safety bars in the event that you drop the bar. These safety bars protect you from being crushed by the weight of the bar were you to drop it.
Power Racks allow you to lift heavier. They are made of thick steel and can last an extremely long time. While they are an investment upfront, Power Racks are worth investing in for your home or commercial gym because they offer a multitude of exercise options. With a Power Rack alone you can do a full-body workout with weights. You may use Power Racks for bench pressing, squats, pull-ups, and a whole host of other exercises so they are truly multipurpose.
The Squat Rack consists of two steel stands with one or more pins which can be attached to one another or completely separate. It is used to rack and un-rack your barbell when performing exercises like bench presses or squats. Squat Racks are not as sturdy as the power rack. They do not have as much flexibility with workout options as Power Racks, but are effective options for many of the same movements. Squat Racks are similar to Power Racks, but smaller and less sturdy. Squat Racks are a cheaper option and they are easier to use in a smaller space. They are also easier to move around.
Power Racks allow you to lift heavier and can also be used for pull-ups and chin-ups. Power Racks are made of thick steel and last a very long time.
