When it comes to burning calories, the Versaclimber is up there with the best of them. Rather than only working your legs like some other cardio machines, the Versaclimber engages your upper and lower body for a full-body, low-impact, sweat-dripping workout.
With the power to tear through calories in half the time of other machines, it’s no surprise that fitness fanatics, sporting legends and Hollywood A-listers choose the Versaclimber as their workout companion. Whether you’re a trained gym-goer or a cardio beginner, the machine is perfect for reaching your goals with low injury risk.
Starting the climb
There is no room to cheat on the Versaclimber – once your feet are strapped in and you grip the handles, you have to work, but don’t panic – you set the speed and stay in control as you climb.
While on the machine, you will move in a contra-lateral pattern (better known as cross-crawl movement), which is already hardwired into our brains from a young age, so it feels perfectly natural. This movement is key to helping you improve the cardio fitness and strength needed to reach your goal as the torso rotation helps develop crucial core muscles.
How does it measure up?
Over the years, celebrities have hit the Versaclimber to achieve great results. Lady Gaga used it to work out and practice singing ahead of the Super Bowl half time show, while Mark Wahlberg and Lebron James credit it with keeping their physique honed. So why do those in the spotlight choose the Versaclimber over other machines?
Since the Versaclimber works your arms, chest, shoulders, back, legs, glutes and everything in between in one fluid motion, it shreds more calories a minute than any other. In a 20-minute workout, you can lose 276 calories with just a 1mph pace – take that to an hour session and it almost reaches 1,000. Compare that to a 20-minute swim which burns 162 calories, a spin bike with 173, and a treadmill which just 90 calories, there’s really no other option.
This means you have you to work out much less to achieve your goals – perfect for those strapped for time or gym bunnies looking to get an extra workout in at lunch.
The Versaclimber is also completely versatile, allowing you to isolate certain sections of your bodies with a push, pull, step and climb options. This essentially lets you do a full-body workout on one machine.
It is also perfect for post-injury rehabilitation since you can slowly strengthen injured areas, or rest them and focus on others.
No matter what the end goal is, the Versaclimber can help you on your journey much faster than anticipated. Whether this is general conditioning and fitness following in the footsteps of England rugby star James Haskell, or charity challenge preparation like Phil Spencer, climbing can be incorporated into any workout regime and fitness goal.
