Outdoor cross training with the Freecross beats indoor at the gym any day, assuming its nice outside off course. Soho Gyms, a gym chain in London has just launched this brand new form of cross-training which can be used on or off-road and lets you combine the full-body, elliptical workout of a traditional cross trainer with fresh air and the freedom to train wherever its wheels can take you. You'll work your arms, shoulders, chest, abdominals, back and legs and get a "full body ride". The bike also helps improve your coordination and balance as you navigate your favorite outdoor terrain. If you need stop the unit is fully equipped with brakes, allowing a safe stop. The Freecross bikes will be available from branches of the London-based Soho Gyms for you to use and they'll be offering one-to-one training from a personal trainer so you know you have the right technique. Not from London? You can also buy one for 1999 Pounds online.
