CYBEX 750AT Total Body Arc Trainer

Being on sales makes me travel a lot, and doing regular workouts is just out of question for me. When I got an opportunity of using the CYBEX 750AT at a restaurant gym, I was very impressed by this three in one machine. In 30 minutes, the stride level made me perspire quite profusely, and I could literally feel my calories burn. I got the trainer shipped to my house last week, and I already have lost a few pounds.
