For those of you who failed to start your fitness plan at the beginning of the year, the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi offers a second chance.

Some of you may watch the broadcast while spinning on a stationery bicycle or running on a treadmill.

When it comes to winter sports, the Pro Fitter 3D Cross Trainer works as a really good ski or even snowboard simulator.
It's function does not stop here, as the machine offers a very complex approach to general conditioning and physical therapy.

The Pro Fitter 3D Cross Trainer is a platform with a rounded bottom which rocks from side to side, while the user, standing on two moving foot boards, slides from one end to the other, imitating the lateral undulation of slalom skiing.
This workout is good for the muscles and easy on the joints.

The tension can be adjusted by replaceable rubber cords and balance can be initially controlled with the help of the ski poles.

The initial lateral movements are relatively easy to master. The whole process takes no more than 5 minutes.
It is beneficial to follow the guidelines from the instructional video and control the posture in the mirror or even the TV screen.

The variety of exercises allows the user to condition larger muscles groups or isolate them (leg extensions, kick backs, ad/abductor) starting from beginner through intermediate and advanced.

Apart from standing on platforms, one can sit on the pad or even perform pushups. The cradle shaped bottom offers an additional challenge to otherwise quite typical exercises.

The key to all the exercises is maintaining proper posture and balance.

The muscle strength and correct posture will benefit not just athletes hitting the slopes.

The overall conditioning gained on the Pro Fitter 3d Cross Trainer is crucial in every sport, and will protect athletes from injuries as well.
