Arc Trainer

The Challenge

At a time when commercial exercise equipment manufacturers were vying for relevance in their competitive world, Cybex engaged Brooks Stevens to help elevate their position in the market.

The Solution

A multi-disciplinary team of designers and engineers at Brooks Stevens developed a new Arc Trainer, a cross trainer, that was more durable than most ellipticals but also more ergonomically sound. By incorporating the natural path of motion, the user is able to strengthen leg muscle groups with less knee strain. We started with emphasis on the user experience and from there, designed an intuitive display interface and safer ergonomic interaction that was aesthetically pleasing.
