Cross trainer

The fitness innovation of the last years: Crosstrainer!

The movement on a crosstrainer or elliptical tra iner resp. Elliptical Trainer corresponds approximately to that of running, however without stepping and therefore completely without joint and tendon load. Due to the additional arm bars of the crosstrainer, further muscle groups are included in the fitness training. As the power is transferred from the arms to the legs via the oblique abdominal muscles and the rotating parts of the back muscles, the crosstrainers offer an excellent whole-body workout. In addition to a cardiovascular workout, the cross trainer trains all muscle groups - from the upper to the lower body - in a gentle sequence of movements.

Reach your fitness goals with the crosstrainer

Crosstrainers are suitable for a variety of different training goals: Weight loss, improving endurance, strengthening muscles, or simply the desire to feel better.

Elliptical trainers are the fitness equipment of the new generation. Not only are they more effective than average, incredibly versatile and time-saving when it comes to training, but they are also suitable for almost every user.

The secret to the success of the crosstrainer or elliptical tra iner is dual training. With the help of an elliptical tra iner, the lower and upper body can be trained simultaneously. In addition, crosstrainers allow for a smooth elliptical motion, hence the name elliptical trainer, which is easy on the joints. The movement is roughly the same as running, but without stepping on and therefore without any joint stress at all. Due to the additional arm bars, further muscle groups are included in the fitness training. Since the power is transferred from the arms to the legs via the oblique abdominal muscles and the rotating parts of the back muscles , one can really speak of an excellent whole-body workout that uses all the major muscle groups. At the same time, the cardiovascular system is trained and fat burning is promoted in an ideal way. The user can move both forwards and backwards on a crosstrainer, either concentrating on the lower half of the body or taking on the challenge of a full body workout.

Elliptical trainer - for efficient fitness training

Before the EFX from PRECOR, there were no elliptical cross trainers in the fitness world. PRECOR not only invented the groundbreaking innovation by imitating the natural elliptical motion of the foot, but combined it with the unique CrossRamp technology. This special technology allows the elliptical motion to be modified individually. So with an elliptical trainer, you get the opportunity to target different muscle groups to efficiently train the entire body.

You want to buy a crosstrainer? Then you should consider the following

Shark Fitness offers you strong fitness brands such as Life Fitness, Tunturi, Horizon Fitness or SportsArt, which have crosstrainers on offer. The machines differ not only in design and range of programs, but also in the motion. Higher or longer ellipticals offer a different motion sequence and stride length.

Most elliptical trainers give a fixed stride length. This can be uncomfortable or limit your workout potential. SportsArt's crosstrainer models have an electronically adjustable stride length of 45-65 cm. Each user can individually adjust the stride length according to their training goal or body size. This guarantees that the user can implement his natural motion sequence and is not limited.

Difference between crosstrainer ergometers and home crosstrainers

As with bicycles, there are so-called crosstrainer ergometers or simple home crosstrainers. The crosstrainer ergometer displays the training power in watts, while the home crosstrainer only indicates a load level. The ergometer version is characterized by a precise load control and a high display accuracy. As in the bicycle sector, a distinction is made between speed-dependent and speed-independent fitness equipment. In the case of speed-dependent cross trainers, the current pedalling power is displayed in watts. With speed-independent elliptical trainers, the wattage can be set. If the user pedals faster, the pedaling resistance is reduced. If the pedalling frequency is too low, the pedalling resistance is increased. In this way, the user always remains at the pre-set power level (watts). With a speed-independent ergometer, the user trains at the exact power level specified by him or her or by the doctor. Therefore, speed-independent cross trainers are also suitable for therapy and rehabilitation or for top-class sports.

Crosstrainer with individual training programs

Crosstrainers are equipped with training computers that offer a variety of programs. Pre-programmed load profiles, watt- and pulse-controlled programs, interval programs as well as user-defined training programs are part of the offer. Pulse-controlled programs, such as the Life Fitness E1 Go crosstrainer, automatically control the target pulse after entering the desired training pulse (for fat burning or endurance training) by lowering or increasing the pedaling resistance. User-friendly displays show comprehensive training statistics such as time, distance, watts, heart rate or wheel rotation.
