It is a proven fact that climbing engages more muscle groups than any other activity – it is a total body workout. VersaClimber offers a Cross-Crawl (or contra-lateral) climbing pattern (similar to crawling or running). This pattern of motion requires the transfer of forces across your body, strengthening your core. This makes VersaClimber the first choice training tool for athletes in any sport.
The position of the users body on the machine also means that the arms are kept above heart level, prompting a swifter cardio response.
Using VersaClimber also significantly reduces the risk of injury (unlike jogging or running) – the smooth, seamless motion of climbing means you won’t create, or aggravate an existing, injury in your hips, knees or ankles.
Because climbing burns so many calories, many customers only need a short time on the machine to achieve tangible results. An experienced climber can burn 500 calories in around 20 minutes.
The variable resistance of VersaClimber allows the user to tailor their workouts by blending cardio with strength training.
The console display shows workout data which helps the user to work within their training plan. The 108 TS model even displays % max effort which is great for ‘Zone Training’.
