A gym should be more than just a place to work out; it should be a place to belong. It is a principle that a gym should look and feel great, complete with upscale touches and a modern twist. It is a passion for being a customer-focused, service-driven organization. It is a mantra that fitness and wellness are more than an industry, but a way of life.
If you’re trying to decide between a fitness center workout or one you do at home, you may have wondered what purpose all that gym equipment has, and what you really need in order to complete an effective workout. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends adults fewer than 65 receive at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise on most days of the week, plus strength-building exercise twice a week on non-consecutive days. Gym equipment that allows to build strength can be used and get cardiovascular exercise. Add stretching to the end of workout and incorporate the full complement of gym equipment uses into your gym routine.
Muscular strength and endurance can be improved by using strength training equipment at a gym. Strength equipment comes in a variety of forms: machines, free weights, bands, medicine balls and much more. Improving strength can help to perform everyday tasks such as carrying groceries and yard work. Lifting weights also help in maintaining and building muscle and bone mass while improving balance. Because muscle burns more calories than fat mass, keeping the muscles strong can help you maintain weight. And as you age, strong bones stave off osteoporosis, while good balance prevents falls. Use your choice of strength equipment twice a week on non-consecutive days, aiming to hit all the major muscle groups.
Working flexibility helps in maintaining the full range of motion of joints. Being able to swing arms and legs, twist, bend and move ensures that one can perform basic tasks like turning their head to check mirrors while driving or picking up an item off the floor. Many gyms have equipment such as large stretching racks or specialty stretching benches specifically designed to help increase flexibility. The items such as mats, stability balls and yoga straps can help in stretching muscles.
