Strength Training

Strength training involves using weights and the force of gravity to build and strengthen skeletal muscles.

From free weights to static weights, dumbbells, kettlebells, chest press or leg curl machines, our clubs have everything you need to build your strength and for muscle conditioning. 

Build your strength in the free weights area where you can train solo, or with the assistance of one of our fitness experts.

If you would prefer to be guided in strength training there's a range of pin loaded machines to support strength work.

We’ve also introduced a new Freestyle area of the club where you can try using new equipment for the first time away from the gym floor.

Three Key Elements

To fully benefit from strength training, a workout should include:

  1. Resistance - the weight

  2. Repetition - literally repeating the same movement to fatigue

  3. Recovery - a rest period between sets

The Benefits

The major benefits of strength training using weights include:

  • Increased muscle & bone strength

  • Increased power

  • Shapes your body

  • Burns fat

Workout with your friends!

If you’re new to weight training or prefer working out in a group, try one of our fantastic strength building Group Exercise classes such as Body Pump where the instructor will guide you through the equipment and exercises.

And to complement your weight training, we stock a range of nutritional drinks and supplements at reception.
