Until fairly recently, gyms were a place you would lift weights and workout. Leisure clubs were places you would swim, sauna, play sports and have lunch. Then leisure clubs tried to get in on the action by watering down the premise of a gym and making everything look colourful in order to make people feel they were doing the same workouts. Over time they have evolved into including more free-weights because, ultimately, that is what gyms are – lifting and moving things, not strapping into a chair while your body gets lazy in stabilising.
Therefore, we do not have fixed resistance machines, as they simply don’t do the job well. At the heart of our layout are free-weights.
However, unlike most facilities, we do this to a high level. Our barbells are 90% competition grade. We have a variety of power bars, Olympic lifting bars and specialist bars, in both male and female sizes (including Swiss Bars, Fat Bars, Safety Squat Bars, Trap Bars & Female sized bars). We have bumper plates, space saver & steel plates and the sizes range from 0.125kg to 50kg plates. Our dumbbells are Hammer Strength ranging from 2kg to 50kg (in 2kg increments) and our kettlebells start at 4kg (for my 2 year old to play with) and go up to 32kg. All in, there is in excess 3,500kg of weights, power racks, platforms & benches. Add to that ancillaries, such as chains, bands, fat grips, lockjaw clips, preacher curl, boxes and the like and you have a complete and solid basis for development.
