If you’re going to invest in an exercise machine that costs nearly $8,000, it might as well have a blood stripe.
The Marine Arc Trainer, made by CYBEX International, is a workout machine that comes wrapped in “dress blue” coloring with a blood stripe and the Marine Corps logo, according to a company news release.
The device is described as a “calorie-burning” cross trainer that allows the user to exercise at a range of inclines, “without stressing knees and joints.” The machine also comes pre-loaded with exercise programs oriented to fitness-test requirements.
The Marine-themed trainer is the first of what the company says will become a line of service-specific machines.
CYBEX also is touting that the machine would help those “overweight teens” who are too fat to serve in the military.
The Marine Arc Trainer retails at $7,950.
UPDATE: Those of you looking to add this machine to your man cave may be disappointed.
Fred Seabright, CYBEX director for government sales had this to say: “Marine customized treatments are ONLY available to Installations who feel that it contributes to improved morale and the overall decor of the training facility and request this customization courtesy.” See more of his comments below.
So what do you think of the machine, and its Marine-centric look?
