AMT – A Three in One Machine
This entry was posted on January 21, 2015.
The AMT, an Adaptive Motion Trainer, is a fitness machine that adapts to natural body movement. It encompasses the benefits of an elliptical, treadmill, and a stepper.
The AMT bears the most similarity to an elliptical cross trainer, as it has pedals and handles that you move in synchronisation to give a low impact with maximum body workout.
The stride length and the step height are adjustable on the AMT so, for example, if you bring the stride length to zero and increase the step height it works as a stepper. Since it is capable of adapting to different body movements, a short stride will be akin to walking, a medium stride will be similar to jogging, and a lengthy stride will be like you are running. Thus you can adjust your workout accordingly.
Of course, like the treadmill, there is a console that lets you know the calories burned, heart rate, time, and speed. There are different levels of resistance so you can either have an easy workout or work yourself harder for greater impact.
Like the elliptical, you are working on pedals where you have no need to lift your feet. This softens the impact on your knees and back. The machine also has a bottle holder and a book stand so you can read while you work out.
To get the lowdown on the full benefits of this great machine head over to any of the Fitness Expo Stores in Metairie, Baton Rouge, Shreveport, Mandeville, and Kenner in Louisiana or Jackson, Mississippi. These stores have an amazing staff that is courteous and knowledgeable. They will help you find the right machine with demonstrations and expert advice. With large showrooms to hold a number of machines, you will definitely be able to make the right choice.
The Adaptive Motion Trainer is manufactured by Precor, which has very high quality standards. This is a wonderful machine, offering great results without the worry of having problems with your knees and back in future. It is a great machine both for beginners, or those who do not work out much, and for fitness freaks who love to work out.
