The Centre offers a diverse gym that offers limitless possibilities and a breadth of equipment that welcomes all exercisers.
Here is an introduction to the new equipment being installed in the gym:
3 new machines include – Glute Drive, Belt Squat and SkiErg.
Concept 2 SkiErg
The SkiErg helps build strength and endurance using the poling motions integral to the sport of Nordic skiing, but you don’t need to be a skier to benefit from the terrific low-impact and full-body exercise. The double poling movement involves not just arms and shoulders, but also the core and legs. The SkiErg easily accommodates adaptive athletes and those with lower-body injuries, as one can sit or kneel and still get a great upper body and core workout. The SkiErg is suitable for use with most wheelchairs.
Hammer Strength Glute Drive
The plate-loaded Glute Drive embodies the Hammer Strength standard for performance equipment. The Glute Drive allows functional movement for posterior power, so users don’t have to rely on barbells, dumbbell benches, or other devices to perform the movement. The Glute Drive gives you the full benefits of the hip thrust exercise, simply, safely, and with good form. The machine is designed to promote good biomechanics and a balanced weight curve.
Hammer Strength Belt Squat
Belt squatting provides similar muscular demands for the quadriceps, hamstrings, and plantar flexors, but is less demanding of trunk stabilizers, and gluteual muscles than a back squat. Belt squats may be a suitable alternative to back squats in order to avoid stressing low back or trunk musculature.
Front and rear weight rods allow for large weight loads and four belt anchor points provide varying resistance ratios. Wide, dual-foot platforms include a separation gap to help prevent marring from the belt and chain. The Belt Squat also features band pegs, long handles to accommodate users of all sizes, and a storage hanger for the belt and hook for added convenience.
Insignia Series Strength Equipment
The Insignia Series Strength Equipment has been designed to ease strength training for everyone. With easy-to-adjust and use machines, the Insignia Series allows for everyone to enjoy strength training utilising a safe machine. Machines utilise independent motion to maintain equilateral muscle development and accommodate exercisers with physical limitations. Expert biomechanics create controlled, natural feeling motions that provide an enjoyable experience for users at all fitness levels.
Hammer Strength Plate-Loaded Machines
