1. What does a typical ARX Workout look like?
ARX uses adaptive resistance, meaning the machines can never give you more than you can handle. Your trainer will create a custom program for you that will focus on major compound movements, targeting multiple muscle groups at once. Every workout is a maximum of 30 minutes in length and your trainer will take you through a warm-up, 4-6 movements on the ARX machines, followed by a nice, relaxing stretch.
You will always work with a trainer in a private studio.
