Review of the CYBEX ARC Trainer

So, it’s official.  I’ve tried both the Precor AMT and the Cybex Arc Trainer.  Of the two, the AMT wins, hands down.  Here’s why:



The Arc trainer has this weird, narrow range of motion, feeling a lot like you’re doing “high stepping” moreso than elliptical training or any other traditional motion.  My hamstrings informed me this machine will get me into fabulous shape, provided that I survive the experience.  After 10 minutes of do or die, I decided to take the plunge and go back to the more enjoyable AMT.  I will say that the Arc is very commonly busy at my gym, so obviously it works great for someone, just not for me.
