Total Gym Accessory: Cyclo Trainer
The Cyclo Trainer 2 is an innovative, ingenious, and durable accessory for any Total Gym exercise system. For me, I had the desire to add a cardio element to my evolving workout regiment and decided to order the accessory on July 1st. Sadly, the carrier lost the original parcel and neglected to inform anyone. When I eventually contacted Total Gym about this, they immediately took steps to investigate and sent me a replacement. After six weeks, I finally had the chance to explore the device. Assembly took less than fifteen minutes and it stood impressively high like the squat stand and Pilates toe bar. As I laid on the glideboard and initially began the ultra-smooth pedaling, goodness, it felt like I was pedaling up a steep hill! I felt my quads working as if I were doing leg extensions until I realized that during assembly, I mistakenly set the resistance level to eight, the highest level! After setting it to a lower level, I found that I could isolate my calves by pedaling with the upper part of my feet, not just the middle. To me, this presented a more well-balanced distribution of work for my legs. As I continued, I lifted myself up with the glideboard, crunched my abs the majority of the time, and cycled at various intensities. At first, I didn't think it was very challenging but after a few minutes, I could feel my heart beating much stronger and my breathing deeper. In no time, I began perspiring heavily despite having my fan set on high. It really gets your blood moving. I continued to use the device for thirty minutes and was very satisfied with the overall effectiveness of the workout. I was drenched by the time I was finished. I read in the instruction manual that an advanced variation involves raising the hips off the glideboard to increase the aerobic intensity. Not only that, but it also allows the abdominals to contract uniquely well, excellent for added level of difficult as well as another opportunity to flatten those abs. It may take some effort to get to that level, but the result is a lovely cardio/isometric mixture that can help burn off that unwanted belly fat in a way that elliptical walkers and other stationary/recumbent cyclers cannot emulate safely. All in all: the Cyclo Trainer 2 is effortless to operate, exceptionally quiet, highly variable in light of the eight resistance levels (along with the gym's own incline resistance levels), incomparably comfortable in terms of back posture and safe usage, and flexible as well as fun. It is certainly worth the consideration and investment, especially if you are lacking that essential cardio element to your workout schedule. I am thrilled to finally have one, to be perfectly honest! Stay Fit everyone!
