The Cybex 770A Arc Trainer is a high quality alternative to commercial elliptical machines. It supports very efficient lower body exercise with smooth arc-shaped motion. Its maximum stride of 24 inches naturally shortens as the incline increases, letting the trainee move from gliding to striding to climbing. Key benefits are rapid calorie burn and muscle sculpting along with cardiovascular exercise. This top-of-the-line model pairs excellent low-impact ergonomics with appealing electronics including iPod/iPhone compatibility, a touch screen and an optional widescreen display.
The 770A Arc Trainer has 13 built-in training programs to support diverse workout goals: Quick Start, Weight Loss (3), Cardio (2), Shaping (2), Strength (3), Adaptive Power, Constant Power and Heart Rate Control. Each program controls the machine’s resistance and incline and has 10 challenge levels.
Additional workout programs — including some in virtual reality video format — are available via Cybex GO on an optional 15.6″ monitor.
The session data shown are time elapsed, distance, calories, calories per hour, Watts, METs, strides per minute, heart rate and heart rate zone. Heart rate zone is indicated with a multicolored light system.

The Cybex 770A is an appealing alternative to elliptical machines. Using an arc shape instead of an elliptical shape, it delivers superior muscle toning and calorie burn while being lower impact than ellipticals too. Beyond the great biomechanics it engages trainees with its iPod/iPhone integration, mobile app syncing, touchscreen, and (optional) Cybex GO platform. We’re a bit partial to the 770AT with moving arm bars, but if you only seek lower body training and the 770A fits your budget, it’s an easy choice.
