Spirit Cross Trainers
Thrive Gym Spirit Cross Trainers
Spirit Cross Trainers provide a unique blend of cardiovascular conditioning and lower body strengthening.
Their machines are the best in the business.
And you would expect them to be given they are made by Spirit, the people who conquered the world with the treadmill.
The Cross Trainer, or elliptical to give it it’s proper name, provides the best of both worlds when considering a treadmill or semi-recumbent bike.
It is also considered a middle ground when comparing it to other forms of cardiovascular exercise.
Elliptical trainers provide the full cardio work-out without impact on the joint whilst still providing a weight-bearing exercise.
This means that as well as strengthening the heart and working lower body muscles it enables Thrive Gym members to maintain or increase the bone density in your lower body.
Spirit elliptical trainers focus on the kinetic energy at the foot pedal. Taking into account the flywheel weight, pulley diameters, belt length, belt tension, foot pedal angle, and stride length they have developed the perfect formula to assure the smoothest start and finish during each elliptical motion.
All Spirit elliptical trainers have a two-inch Q-Factor. This is the distance between the inside of the pedals. Minimizing this space forces the body to adopt a more ergonomically correct position and makes the motion closer to that of walking or running.
The user interface provides a range of programs and a wealth of information designed to provide feedback as well as tailor and record workouts.
