York Fitness Cross Trainers deliver a high intensity, low impact, total body workout. All from the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Cross Trainers are also known as elliptical trainers or X trainers and are uniquely designed to offer weight-bearing exercise, whilst decreasing the risk of impact injuries. Cross trainers are a great option to those with knee, back or hip issues.
They offer a truly versatile cardiovascular training option which is lower impact than a treadmill, yet still offers an equal level of exertion to the legs and heart. They create a more total body workout than an exercise bike and are less stressful on the lower back than a rower.
By targeting both your arms and legs at the same time they are a great way to burn calories, lose body fat and gain fitness. It also makes them the ideal exercise machine for weight training warm-ups. Studies have also shown that the Relative Perceived Exertion (RPE) for cross trainers, is lower than many other cardio machines. Meaning you’ll be working harder than you feel like you are.
Rear drive cross trainers are compact and great for smaller home gym spaces. If you want a longer stride length then go with a front-drive option that will really get your heart pumping.
Another benefit of cross trainers is their low noise output. Since the feet remain static during use, there is no impact noise such as with a treadmill.
From rehabilitation to high-intensity training a high-quality York Fitness cross trainer will motivate you to reach your fitness goals.
