Cross-country skiers belong to the fittest athletes, due to the sport demanding total body strength and condition. On the Taurus Scandic-X Indoor Trainer this movement can almost be perfectly simulated. The Scandic-X is a perfect training machine at home or in professional gyms.
Ski exercise machine – especially versatile fitness machine
Improving general fitness, training the core muscles, lose weight, warm-up, more endurance, a better technique for cross-country skiing and and and... reach uncountable goals with the Taurus Scandic-X Indoor Trainer. At first sight of the Scandic-X you would think that only the arms would be trained – when in fact an almost full body training is possible. Power comes more from the back and chest than from the arms. Through a small squatted position the glutes and leg muscles are activated as well as the lower back and abdominal muscles. It's no wonder that cross-country skiers are among the fittest athletes in the world.
Well equipped in compact dimensions
The indoor ski trainer can be easily mounted to the wall, therefore needing very little space if at home or in the gym. Separately available is also a stand, so that the ski trainer can stand freely in the room. For this reason the Scandic-X also has transport wheels mounted on the back.

The Taurus Scandic-X Indoor Trainer is built with a hybrid resistance system. With the magnet system you can set the base resistance (in 10 levels), additional resistance is then generated during training from the air system. That means the harder you pull, the higher the intensity. In a quick pull the air will be quickly displaced. This principle works quite well up to a certain speed, but after that the air displaced is "in the way" of the air that needs to get displaced. Therefore the difficulty is increased.

A blue back-lit, easy to read display is mounted on the mast of the ski trainer. All training values are displayed and settings are made on this training computer. For example, you can choose a heart rate program, that warns you when your heart rate increases over your set limit. Or choose one of the interval programs, that will bring you to your limits within minutes.
More results through variety with your training
The main principle on this ski trainer is very easy: Just pull on the grips. You are also able to pull in many different ways. You can pull while alternating, switching from pulling left and then pulling right or pulling with more power with both arms at the same time. Dependent on the execution this will also change the muscular focus of the exercise. With quick pulls of both arms at the same time, the resistance is higher and needs more power. By switching between the arms, the stablising muscles in the core are activated.

Even the posture effects the results of your training. Normally training is done in slight squat position. But you can also kneel, sit or even lay down for training. Also looking towards/away from or even in a sideways position to the Scandic-X effects 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!

Very Happy
Can't fault at all, i bought the floor stand to use rather than wall mount and must say i was surprised how sturdy the machine actually is.

Great Purchase
I'm so glad I went for this product in the end, great for interval training, easy to assemble and the choices of hand grips were a nice touch.
