New Cardio Equipment Installed

April 15, 2015

At Island we’re always trying to provide our members with the best equipment to help them reach their fitness goals. This week we replaced some of the cardio equipment on the second floor of our Downtown location. We replaced the two Arc Trainers facing the inlet with new Cybex Arc Trainers. In addition, we installed two new Stairmaster Gauntlet stepmills to replace the two in same position.


Both machines feature USB ports so you can charge your phone or MP3 player while you’re working out. In addition, the Arc Trainers have built-in iPod cables to charge your iPod or iPhone 4.


Because your legs travel in a biomechanically correct motion, the Arc Trainer is scientifically tested to be easier on your joints and burns 16% more calories than an elliptical. The Guantlet features a Landmark Challenge Program that allows you to climb the equivalent the Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty.


Our next major equipment purchase is a second squat rack for our Cayuga Heights location. The squat rack will give greater flexibility for our members who are working out on their own or with a personal trainer.
