NEW! Cybex SPARC Trainers

More “Get on and Go”  Interval Training Cardio!  This week it’s 6 new SPARC Trainers from Cybex. (Last week it was 6 new Woodway Curves)

The SPARC Trainers are perfect for HIIT style workouts.  What is HIIT?

“HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods.” via Daily Burn

Check out this summary of the SPARC HERE and check out the videos at the bottom of the post.

The new Woodway Curve treadmills are in a new category of cardio equipment called “get on and go” cardio.  Similar to the air-dyne or Concept2 rower, you can just “get on and go” without programming the display.  They are great for interval training, sprints and especially HIIT-style training.  Find out more info on the Woodway website HERE and a training manual is HERE.

 “Woodway Curve Treadmills, have a slight curve to them, have a belt composed of a series of planks rather than a smooth surface and as you may have noticed, they have no “on” or “off” button. That’s because you manually power the treadmill…YOU ARE THE MOTOR! Because you are powering the treadmill, you control the speed and the pace rather than the treadmill doing that for you. Since you’re doing the work, you are able to burn up to 30 percent more calories compared to when running on a traditional treadmill.”  –via LINK

 

“The Curve’s design also helps improve and correct your running form and ensures you have a more efficient stride. When you use the Curve consistently, you are able to develop a proper movement pattern and muscle memory which improves your running form outside of the gym.  If you over-stride, the Curve will not move and it does not allow for an exaggerated lean forwards or backwards while in motion.”  –via LINK
