Technogym Lateral Crossover 700SP is for users who:
Want to lose weight?
With Technogym Crossover you need just a few minutes to work your entire body: moving your arms and legs together, in three dimensions, including lateral dimension, it allows you to burn up to 160 calories in 20 minutes, yet you'll feel less exertion than in other exercises.
Want to tone your legs and gluteus better?
During lateral total body movement, the knee bends more than in other types of training, which focuses on toning the muscles in the upper part of your leg: quadriceps, gluteus, hamstrings, and the biceps femoris muscle.
Want to improve your coordination?
Technogym Crossover has two platforms and two interconnected levers that move simultaneously. If you pull the levers you'll train your coordination because your arms will guide your legs, prompting your limbs to synchronize with each other.
Want to train your balance?
The posture you assume with Technogym Crossover and the lateral movement of the platforms involve the body's major stabilizing muscles (abdominal and back belt) and helps you improve your proprioception and balance, also increasing speed.
Want to prevent backache?
The platforms move backward, outward, and rotate, and this movement is less tiring on your ankle, pelvis and spinal column, allowing you to lengthen and strengthen your muscles and ligaments, preventing injury and future problems.
Want to train for a sport?
The Technogym Crossover lateral cross-training movement is similar to skating and skiing, and therefore it allows you to prepare for all sports that require thrusting movement in your legs.
What is Technogym 700SP Crossover like?
Different from a Crosstrainer
Compared with traditional crosstrainers which have only one type of forward movement, the biomechanics of the lateral and rotating movement of the Technogym Crossover 700SP simultaneously involve the legs in extending, abducting, flexing, and rotating actions.
With Technogym Crossover 700SP it's the thrust on the platforms that determines the intensity of the exercise.
With Technogym Crossover 700SP, the direction is lateral and rotational, and the maximum extension of each step is fixed.
Different from a treadmill or running on the road
Compared with treadmills or running outdoors, Technogym Crossover 700SP does not require a high degree of coordination, because the movement is guided. In addition, because there's no contact with the ground, there is less impact on the knees and hips, and the joints in the foot.
Safe for knees and ankles
When you begin to exercise, the inside edge of the platforms is higher than the outer edge, which prevents you from assuming an incorrect posture that could cause improper rotations, ankle sprains, or problems like valgus knee. The motion of the equipment itself helps you keep your lower limbs in line, preventing abrupt bends in your joints.
Suitable for rehabilitation
The Technogym Crossover is certified by European Community law 93/42 addressing medical devices, and is suitable for use in hospitals, sports centres and rehabilitation facilities as support for treatment and muscle rehabilitation.
Safe and suitable for everyone and for total-body fitness
According to a study by the Technogym Scientific and Medical Department, even men and women older than 60 who have used Technogym Crossover have demonstrated low levels of cardiac fatigue and improved balance.
What is the movement of Technogym Crossover like?
The platforms and levers move laterally and together, interconnectedly, with motion that is:
The directions alternate: if you're pushing the platform with your right leg, you have to pull the lever with your left arm and vice versa.
Convergent for the arms
The levers follow a guided, converging and diverging motion (they don't move in a straight line): the proper motion is to pull one toward you while pressing the other outward.
Lateral and three-dimensional for the legs
The platforms involve the legs in a lateral motion that moves in three directions. During exercise they move backward, outward and rotate, so that your legs extend to the rear, shift toward the outside and rotate.
Intuitive and flexible
The biomechanics of Crossover make the movement intuitive. When you reach the "dead spot" of your motion and need to start moving in the other direction, you can do so easily and without struggle because the platforms are designed to make your movements easier so they flow.
Training Tips with Technogym Crossover
Step onto the machine and rest your feet on the platforms so your big toe is in the inside upper corner. This makes your heel the thrust point to make the exercise effective and safe. Simply move the platforms or the handles to begin training.
On the display you can choose from 25 levels of difficulty/resistance for the platforms, and goals such as time, calories and distance, or if you have a mywellnesskey, you can follow your personal training program.
Since the length of the stride is fixed, you can choose whether to A] focus more on your legs, or B] focus on your arms and coordination.
[A] If you want to focus more on your legs:
Keep your hands on the levers but press against the platforms, using the full length of every stride all the way to the end.
Also, If you don't want to train your arms, you can rest your hands on the supports.
[B] To train your arms and coordination
Pull the levers, allowing your legs to be pulled along by the movement of your upper body. You'll notice immediately that your stride will be shorter, and this will let you work on your coordination, because it's more challenging to guide your legs through your arms.
