Crossover

Lose weight, improve your balance or train for a sport with the Crossover


Crossover is for you who:

Want to lose weight

With Crossover you need just a few minutes to work your entire body: moving your arms and legs together in three dimensions allows you to burn up to 160 calories in 20 minutes.

Want to tone your legs and gluteus better

During movement, the knee bends more than in other types of training which allows you to tone the muscles in the upper part of your leg: quadriceps, gluteus, and the biceps femoris muscle.

Want to improve your coordination

Crossover has two platforms and two interconnected levers that move simultaneously. Pulling the levers will train your coordination because your arms will guide your legs, thereby prompting your limbs to synchronize with each other.

Want to train your balance

The posture you assume with Crossover and the movement of the platforms involve the body's major stabilizing muscles (abdominal and back belt) and helps you improve your proprioception and balance.

Want to train for a sport

The Crossover movement is similar to skating and skiing; therefore, it allows you to prepare for all sports that require lateral movement in your legs.

What is Crossover like?

Different from a Crosstrainer

Compared with traditional crosstrainers which have only one type of movement, the biomechanics of Crossover simultaneously involve the legs in extending, abducting, flexing, and rotating actions.

Compared with Vario, where your own movement changes the length of the stride, the direction is lateral and the maximum extension of each step is fixed.

Different from a treadmill or running on the road

Compared with treadmills or running outdoors, Crossover 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 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 a proper line.

Suitable for rehabilitation

The 700 MD and 500 MD versions of Crossover are certified by European Community law 93/42 addressing medical devices, and are suitable for use in hospitals, sports centers and rehabilitation facilities as support for treatment and muscle rehabilitation.

Safe and suitable for everyone

According to a study by the Technogym Scientific and Medical Department, men and women older than 60 who have used Crossover have demonstrated lower levels of cardiac fatigue and improved balance.

What is the movement of Crossover like?

The platforms and levers move together with a motion that is:

Alternating

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.

Training with Crossover

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.

Although the length of the stride is fixed, you can choose whether to focus more on your legs or on your arms and coordination.

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. If you don't want to train your arms, you can rest your hands on the supports. If your model features VISIOWEB, you can use this time to surf the web.

To train your arms and coordination

Pull the levers and allow your legs to be pulled along by the movement of your upper body. You'll notice immediately that your stride will be shorter. This will let you work on your coordination because it's more challenging to guide your legs through your arms.

If you're using a version with VISIOWEB, you can entertain yourself watching television or listening to your iPod or iPhone.

How much and when should you use Crossover?

To achieve the benefits you're looking for in your training, you can apply some general recommendations from our psychological and physical wellness guide to your exercise with Crossover.

In general, to stay in shape through cardiovascular training, you only need about 150 minutes a week, divided if possible into at least three sessions.

Crossover for clubs

Crossover offers a crosstrainer that's different from traditional equipment. Thanks to its unique motion and the fact that almost no experience is needed to use it and reap the benefits, it's suitable for a user segment that even includes people over the age of 60.

Precisely because of its special characteristics, Crossover was featured in GQ Magazine as one of the best 100 products of 2010.

Why are there no product prices?

A cross trainer is a type of equipment designed for cardiovascular exercise that simulates movements similar to running, walking, and climbing stairs. With a natural feel and no impact on the knees and joints, cross trainers are some of the most complete machines because they train the entire body at the same time. Equipment in this category has two pedals connected by an internal flywheel, and in most cases, two handles/levers that follow the motion of the pedals. Using the pedals and handles together, you can exercise your entire body involving not only the muscles in your legs, but also those in your abdominals, pectorals, shoulders, and arms. You can isolate training to just the lower half of the body by only using the platforms. Thanks to its complete movement, it is perfect for people who want to move all the muscles in their body in a single session, lose weight, and reduce the risk of joint problems.
Biomechanics is the science behind the creation of a piece of equipment or a machine. Through a choice of adjustments, height, and length, the proper use of biomechanics helps users to perform exercises correctly in terms of posture, balance, and safety.
According to scientific and medical studies, a man or woman weighing approximately 165 pounds who performs a workout on the Crossover with resistance of approximately 150 watts (medium-high exercise intensity)will consume about 8 kcal per minute (160 kcal in 20 minutes).
Proprioception is the ability to perceive and recognize the position of your own body in space and the contraction status of your muscles even without using your sight. The better developed it is, the better your balance will be.
The knee is defined as a valgus when the femur and the tibia are not perfectly aligned.
