Ride the Cardio Wave

Sick of the same old. Elliptical one day, treadmill another, stationary bike another?

The latest and greatest piece of equipment to hit gyms is the Technogym Cardio Wave. It is similar to an Elliptical, except that your legs move side to side (they call it multiplanar movement) rather than front to back -- it's kind of like you're speed skating. The great thing about the Cardio Wave is that it really works your butt and promotes coordination all while giving you a great cardio workout. I also think it's way cool that there is a LCD TV built into the monitor.

The Cardio Wave is not everywhere just yet (and is not available for at-home use), but look for it at your gym!

I started using the WAVE almost a year ago. In our gym NYSC, we have 2 of them. A few people use them. I definitely prefer them than any other equipment in the gym. I started out burning 200 calories at level 15 and now, I burn 500 calories in 33 minutes on level 18 and try to use it 4 times a week. I love that it makes you sweat and still doesn't hurt your knees and that's important for a 65 year old woman. My gym better not get rid of them or I'll be gone too.

This is the BEST cardio machine I've ever used. I finally get my abs and my legs look better that ever. I won't change it for any other machine. I wish I can have at home...

I just tried it today at my gym for the first time and it is amazing. It feels like you are inline skating but with resistance. I did 15 minutes on resistance 2 and was pooped and to boot I could feel it working my butt as i cardioed.

We have the Wave at my gym and it's great! I love the fluid motion and it's a great variety from the other cardios. Also, if you don't hold on, you work your core at the same time. Boy, it breaks a sweat though. I can barely do 15 minutes on the wave, while I can work far longer on other machines!

The future is now! That looks pretty neat, wish I could try it somewhere. My thighs are buring already.

I'm always down for trying new fitness equipment. Anything to break up the monotony of the treadmill/stair stepper/elliptical cycle.

I'm not sure I'm coordinated enough to do this one...I'm feeling motion sickness just looking at this picture!
