The Taurus Scandic-X Ski Trainer gives you the perfect machine for building your upper body strength.

Cross-country skiers are some of the fittest athletes on the planet, due to the demands placed on their bodies when they compete, with the Scandic-X these movements can be almost perfectly simulated.

When you first look at the machine, you would assume that only your arms would be working, however the Taurus Scandic-X Ski Trainer will work your whole body. Power comes from your back and chest, more than through your arms. With a squat stance, your glutes and leg muscles will kick-in as well as your lower back and ab muscles.

The Taurus Scandic-X Ski Trainer offers effective cardio training for endurance as well as maximal power, losing weight or for warming-up and is very joint-friendly.

You can also kneel, sit or even lay down for training should you wish to. Choose between ski pole grips or straps. Looking towards / away from or even in a sideways position to the Scandic-X can affect your training results, but the best way is to try it out and find out what exercise / position you have the most fun with so that you get the best results that work for you!

The machine has been designed and recommended for home-use but can also be used in commercial premises and gyms. Built with a hybrid resistance system, the magnet system lets you set the base resistance (10 different levels) and additional resistance is then generated during training from the air system.

In essence, that means the harder you pull, the higher the intensity. If you pull quickly, the air will be quickly displaced. This works well in practice, up to a certain speed, but thereafter the air is displaced “in the way” of the air that needs to be displaced, therefore increasing the difficulty.

With the ski trainer, the training method is relatively simple to get your head around, just pull on the grips. However, there is a variety of ways you can do this to mix up your workouts. For example, you can pull whilst alternating both the left and right handles, or pulling both at the same time. If you alternate arms, your stablising muscles in your core are sprung into action. Depending on how your wish to focus your sessions, you could pull quicker at the same time for more resistance, requiring more power.

The Scandic-X is fitted with a blue back-lit console, that is mounted on the frame of the trainer. As you train your workout stats are displayed clearly on the screen. There are also a number of different settings and programs pre-set on the console. You are able to choose a heart rate prorgam or interval training program to push yourself, setting limits if you wish to.

The console displays: time, time/500m, distance, calories, strokes per minute, total strokes, pulse and watts. Pre-loaded with 3 interval programs (Tabata), 3 target programs, 4 hear rate programs and 1 watt program, there is variety for users of all levels of experience and age. A quick / start mode and manual mode for convenience, keep the console simple and straightforward to operate.

The Scandic-X can be easily mounted to a wall to save space in your home or indeed commercial gym. We would always recommend having a professional tradesman do this if you are unsure of doing this yourself.

Alternatively, the machine does have a compatible stand, sold separately, which allows the trainer to stand freely in any room or floor space. The Scandic-X is also fitted with transport wheels for easy portability should you wish to move it around.

Please note: This model pictured has the mounted base unit, however this is not included and can be purchased separately below.

Taurus Scandic-X
Great product and service. I was considering a Concept 2 ERG but chose the Taurus Scandic-X Ski Trainer due to the reduced noise associated with a magnetic-air resistance combination. I am pleased I did. I work shifts and have just done an early morning workout without waking anyone up. The feel is just the same, the build is robust commercial gym quality and the ROM is excellent. There's no lag, as is the complaint with some cheaper models. Assembly was simple. The package arrived on a large pallet and the box is heavy.

Tough tough workouts getting me in shape.
I am in a love hate relationship with this piece of equipment. I am down 3lbs already having been using it for 2 weeks but the workouts are really intense! You can feel all of your muscles working and the machine itself seems super robust so I am not afraid to go to high intensities. I would recommend this to anyone else looking to get into better shape!

Robust machine for upper body workout
Perfect machine for working out your upper body. There's a variety of programs in the console and it provides all necessary workout data while you train. The machine is robust and the pulleys run smoothly.

Upper Body Workout
Perfect CV equipment that unlike all other CV equipment, this machine doesn’t involve using the legs too much. Great for upper body toning, especially shoulders and arms.

Great alternative for Skierg
Very good quality and smooth motion. Would recommend the stand as well which is very sturdy. Console is great with variety of settings. Great product.

Amazing quality product and service, definitely recommend! Could not be happier !

Very unique machine, very robust, cannot wait for clients to use.
Needing to offer my clients something different, I tried both the Taurus Scandic-X and the Concept Ski-Erg, both felt the same quality yet the Taurus was £200 cheaper and 2 years warranty over the Skierg 1 year. No brainer.

I use a ski erg with my PT in the gym but wanted one to use at home for my home workouts. I have not been disappointed, the quality is the same as the ones in the gym. It is extremely robust and does not move an inch when in use which was my main concern. Delivery came quicker than the time frame I was told and the assembly took no time at all. I can not believe the quality for the price, I could not be more impressed.

Very impressed with my ski erg
Have been after a ski erg for a while now after starting to use them at the gym before lockdown. I was quite enjoying doing this exercise at the gym and found I was getting better each time. I bought this ski erg so I could carry on with my progress during lockdown. It provides such a good workout and the machine is more or less the same as the one I previously used. Great way of working out, one of my favourite exercises to do.

Ski Erg Alternative
I have used the Ski Ergs in the gym and thought I would try out this Taurus one instead. This is just as good quality, if not better, and I love using the interval programmes that are built into the console.
