Additional Information

Get a Full Body Workout

Cross Trainers will tone and strengthen your quads, hamstrings, calves, bottom and arms, all at the same time. It will also flex your stomach and sides with gentle twisting movements. You can increase the resistance level to improve muscle tone or keep the resistance levels low to achieve cardio and weight loss goals. Select a cross trainer with an incline feature and you can target your stomach and thighs too.

Weight Loss and Calorie Burning

Cross trainers are fantastic for burning calories because they work multiple muscle groups at the same time –providing a more intense workout. The number of calories you can burn on a cross trainer will vary based on age, gender, physical fitness and the amount of effort you exert. As a rough guide, it takes an average of 30 minutes to burn off 200 calories.

Target Problem Areas and Strengthen Your Core

Change the emphasis of your workout based on the body part you want to target. For example, if you want to strengthen and tone of your arms, relax your leg muscles and let your arms pump backwards and forwards. Incline cross trainers like the JTX Tri-Fit will help you target the most common problem areas; thighs, bottom and stomach. You can also work on improving your core stability by taking your arms off the handles and solely using your legs to exercise. Cross Trainers are completely adaptable and offer something for everyone, whatever your age, sex, fitness goal or ability.

Health Benefits

Cross trainers provide a fantastic cardio workout for the heart. A few sessions a week on a cross trainer will improve your general aerobic fitness, strengthen bones and increase lung capacity.

Better For Your Joints

There is no doubt that cross trainers offer a much lower impact workout than running. Your feet don’t leave the supports on a cross trainer which creates much less impact on your knees, joints and back. This reduces the likelihood of an injury. The longer the stride length,the smoother the motion and impact on your joints.

The Perfect Training Alternative

Cross trainers are a fantastic supplementary training option if you are working towards an endurance challenge. Cross trainers make your body work harder – they are not tailored to a single goal such as gaining strength or getting faster, they do both simultaneously! This means your body and fitness levels improve at a much faster rate than if you were to stick to one type of exercise.

Cross Trainers Are Quiet

This simple fact makes cross trainers the perfect fitness solution for the home. At JTX Fitness, our cross trainers have been specifically designed to enhance your home gym with beautiful design features and credible specifications that will help you achieve your fitness goals faster.

JTX Cross Trainer Stride Length

Cross Trainer Stride Length

Choosing the right stride length will make a big difference to the effectiveness of your workout. Too short and you may experience an unnatural, jarring, stance which prevents you from working out at your maximum intensity. We recommend a minimum stride length of 16 inches. Gym quality cross trainers generally have a stride length of 20 inches or more. Larger stride lengths allow a smoother, more fluid motion and create the potential for workouts of greater intensity. If more than one person will be using the cross trainer or you would like to vary the intensity of your workout, a cross trainer with an adjustable stride length can be very beneficial. The JTX Tri-Fit is the perfect solution for this challenge.

Cross Trainer Flywheel Size

The flywheel is the heaviest part of a cross trainer. It dictates the maximum resistance but equally importantly helps create a smooth ride. It is one way to help identify the quality of a cross trainer. We would recommend 10kg as the minimum flywheel size to consider. It is important to also take the total weight of the machine into consideration. To create a perfectly smooth and stable ride you need a decent flywheel and a solid frame. It can be hard to identify this when shopping on-line and looking at the weights of the overall machine and its flywheel are a good guide. If you are comparing two cross trainers and one is much lighter than another but apparently has a huge flywheel, we suggest you think twice. Compare JTX Cross Trainer fly wheel sizes here.

Cross Trainer Dimensions

Cross trainer dimensions vary depending on stride length and machine design. Commercial cross trainers with a stride length of over 20” are generally at least 225cm in length. Smaller home use cross trainers, while more compact generally have smaller stride lengths as well. If space is limited but you don’t want to compromise on stride length, then a well designed, adjustable stride cross trainer is probably what you should consider. Something like the JTX Tri-Fit which has been carefully designed to achieve a 20” stride in a compact home use footprint.

Best Cross Trainer For Home Gym

TIP: Before buying a cross trainer make sure you have measured how much space you have and allow an extra 10cm – 15cm on the quoted cross trainer width. This will ensure you have enough space to get onto the cross trainer comfortably and don’t feel too cramped whilst working out.

Working Out Your Calorie Burn

Most cross trainers have on board computers that show you how many calories you have burned during your workout. Often, these readings are not completely accurate because the amount of calories you burn depends on your weight, height, age and gender. To make the calorie reading as accurate as possible input as much data into the machines computer as possible. It’s easy to skip this step as you want to get straight on with your workout. But, the more information your cross trainer has about you the more accurate the reading will be in return. If your machine does not allow you to take an accurate reading, you can use calorie burning estimates to give you a sense of how hard you are working. For example: The Mayo Clinic estimates that 1 hour spent on a cross trainer at a moderate difficulty level could help you burn 545 calories. Remember that the level of your workout intensity will dictate the number of calories you will burn.

Heart Rate Training

When you’re doing any cardiovascular exercise, a great way to track your intensity levels is to wear a heart rate monitor. Target heart rate training can be used to assist goals ranging from fat burning and weight loss to maximum aerobic capacity development. Select a target heart rate based on the goal you are working towards and input it into the computer. When you are training the cross trainer will then auto adjust the resistance and so your intensity in order to keep you in your target zone. All our home cross trainers come with a FREE heart rate chest strap.

I bought the JTX Strider-X7 just over a year ago to replace a poor quality York strider. I came across it on Amazon where I most impressed with the fact that where people had issues with the machine JTX were quick to respond and support the purchasers. his was important to me as I had trouble with other companies in even replying to issues. Not that I wanted to my machine to have issues of course, just that they would provide adequate support for a product you could not just send back in the post. Last week I did have an issue where a couple of bolts snapped off the underside of the stabilisers. Bear in Mind JTX are in West Sussex and I am in Glasgow I was keen to see how this would play out. Bottom line, I exchanged a couple of emails with Simon explaining what happened with pictures, there was no issue, delay or anything. Simon said he would get an engineer booked and within a couple of days the engineer phone to make an appointment. Overall a week to get it all fixed and back in order. The engineer was very helpful and explained what to do to prevent it happening again. Simply a case of making sure the bolts were tight as they can come loose with the vibration. Top equipment and top service, highly recommended. The very reason I picked them turned out to be the reason I will buy from them again.

I am lucky enough to live quite close to the JTX warehouse and was able to drop in and try out some machines before I bought one. Everyone there was friendly and helpful, and happy to take the time to listen to me and make sure I chose the right product (the X7 cross trainer). They were also available on the phone while I was putting it together, and have been supportive and pleasant all the way through the process. On the basis of my experience I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Great. Sturdy cross trainer, easy to assemble. Company talked me through how to set up a suitable program on the console. The guy was very patient and clear.
