A much safer option than the bench press, the chest press machine uses cables and pulleys and is on a fixed line of movement, the natural stability being particularly suitable to people with or recovering from shoulder injury.
Adjustment is a doddle; no changing weights on a barbell just move the pin from one weight to the other and keep on working out. Also possible is Single arm pressing a real no no with a weight bar.
Unlike many other leg exercises which target only one muscle, the sitting leg press targets a number of different muscles including your quadriceps, gluteus maximus, soleus, gastrocnemius, hamstrings and adductor magnus. The ability to stimulate multiple muscle groups makes the leg press a more efficient choice for leg, hip and bottom.
The stable sitting position leads to a much lower risk of injury than using weights and squats for the less experienced.
Great for toning the quads this couldn't be easier to use; just sit on, put your legs under the pads and lift!
The weights section of the Gym is equipped with a new squat rack including an Olympic bar, and bench for safe lifting.
The squat rack serves several purposes. Chief among them is safety: for instance, in the bench press, placing the bar catches right above the lifter's chest will prevent the barbell from crushing the athlete in the case of muscular fatigue or other loss of control of the bar. In the case of squats, catches placed just below the lowest position of the squat allow the lifter to "dump" the weight safely.
By leaning forward while doing Dips you put more focus on your chest muscles. That way Dips efficiently build your chest and make it wider. Because of no back or foot support, doing Dips activates a lot of stabilising muscles. There are ways to make Dips harder. Either by using static holds and slow reps, or adding weights. By remaining upright you put more focus on triceps.
Use our benches for dumbbell press, dumbbell fly, barbell press or with our chest press machine and squat rack for extra safety and stability.
We have a large selection of brand new Wolverson Fitness dumbbells and kettle bells.
We have 2 treadmills, one is motorised with a variety of built in fitness programs including hills, or you can walk, jog or run at your own pace and without the wind and rain to hinder.
The other is a brand new, state of the art Assault AirRunner treadmill. Like running on air, but with a powerful amount of punch. This treadmill is like none you have ever known, burning up to 30% more calories than the average motorised version and built with intense training in mind. Tough on You, Easy on the Environment as it runs on your energy, with zero electrical consumption and a low carbon footprint. You’ll be amazed at what a hardcore workout can come from the power of your own two feet. The self-powered treadmill allows you to run with a natural style on the balls of your feet. This pushes your body forward creating the momentum to turn the treadmill belt. This style of running uses more muscle groups in the body at the same time when compared to the traditional heel strike used by many runners.
