Treadmills, Ellipticals, and VersaClimbers… OH MY!
Treadmills, cycles, rowing machines, and elliptical machines all do a good job of burning calories, by increasing your heart rate, strengthening your muscles, and increasing cardiovascular fitness. The faster you work out, and the more resistance you utilize on those machines, the more calories you will burn. But those machines have limitations and don’t allow you to burn calories as quickly as the VersaClimber.
How Does the VersaClimber Help You Burn Calories So Quickly
The VersaClimber is a wonderful piece of cardio exercise equipment which helps to burn calories faster than all others, partly because it simultaneously taps into muscles that other exercise machines don’t. The full-body muscle recruitment, with increased resistance, forces your body to go into afterburner mode bringing your heart rate near its max, burning calories at an unprecedented rate, increasing cardio fitness.
- Full Body Muscle Recruitment – The VersaClimber, by design, utilizes every muscle in the body. (Arms, legs, chest, shoulders, abdominals, buttocks, heart, etc.) By engaging all of your muscles at the same time, you burn more calories than you would on an exercise machine that does not engage all of those muscles simultaneously.
- Increased Resistance – The VersaClimber can be adjusted to increase or decrease the resistance, handle height and stroke length. In other words, it can be fitted to accommodate people of different sizes and abilities. After adjusting the machine the exercise enthusiast can work at their own pace and comfort level. Fast or slow for as long as they wish to. The longer the stroke length, the greater the range of motion and the more work your body does. Increased resistance and speed equals increased heart rate, increased calorie burn and better cardiovascular health.
- Calorie Afterburn – Rise Nation offers classes where the VersaClimber is used for high-intensity interval training (HIIT). HIIT exercises force your body into overdrive where your metabolic rate increases and stays high for hours to days after your exercise session ends. The increased metabolic rate results in a higher caloric burn rate, sustaining an increased metabolic rate that could last until your next workout.
- Calorie Burn Rate – The burn rate for the VersaClimber is around 650 calories per 30-minute workout while cycling, treadmills, elliptical and rowing burn around 350 calories in that same amount of time. Considering that cycling, treadmills, elliptical machines, and rowing don’t engage all muscles at the same time it is easy to understand why the VersaClimber burns calories quicker.
The Bottom Line
The number of calories that a person will burn is dependent upon many things such as; body weight, exercise machine resistance, personal fitness level, heart rate, and workout intensity. Although each person will burn calories at a different rate, there is one clear way for exercise enthusiasts to burn calories even more quickly. The VersaClimber helps exercise enthusiasts burn more calories and fat in less time because it engages all the muscle groups at once, helps increase and maintain the heart rate which promotes the ideal environment to burn excess calories and cardio health. Rise Nation is proud of its VersaClimber classes, exercise regimens, and cardio workouts.
