TRX Suspension Training
The TRX Suspension Trainer is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.
The TRX Suspension Trainer:
- Delivers a fast, effective total-body workout
- Helps build a rock-solid core
- Increases muscular endurance
- Benefits people of all fitness levels (Pro-athletes to seniors)
A treadmill is a device for walking or running while staying in the same place. The machine provides a moving platform with a wide conveyor belt driven by an electric motor. The belt moves to the rear requiring the user to walk or run at a speed matching that of the belt. The rate at which the belt moves is the rate of walking or running. Thus, the speed of running may be controlled and measured. The incline of the machine can also be manipulated to replicate running hills.
A stationary exercise machine used to simulate stair climbing, walking, or running without causing excessive pressure to the joints, hence decreasing the risk of impact injuries. For this reason, people with some injuries can use an elliptical to stay fit, as the low impact affects them little. Elliptical trainers offer a non-impact cardiovascular workout that can vary from light to high intensity based on the speed of the exercise and the resistance preference set by the user.
The BOSU is a fitness training device consisting of an inflated rubber hemisphere attached to a rigid platform. The name is an acromyn which stands for “BOth Sides Up” a reference to the two ways a BOSU ball can be positioned. The device is often used for balance training. When the dome side faces up, the BOSU ball provides an unstable surface while the device remains stable. This combination of stable/unstable allows a wide range of users, from the young, elderly, or injured to the elite level athlete. With the dome side up, the device can be used for athletic drills and aerobic activities. As the name suggests, the device can also be flipped over so that the platform faces up. In this position, the device is highly unstable and can be used for a wide array of exercises as well.
The unique Step360™ Pro is an incredible training tool that compliments workout sessions for all ages, fitness levels, and skill capacities. A flat, stable platform atop two independently inflated 360 air chambers is the secret. Adjusting the air in the chambers modifies the height of the platform, while varying the degree of 360° rotational oscillation. Durable, non-slip platform surface for more demanding jumping, landing, and bounding activities. Platform tubing anchors for combined strength/balance exercise moves.
The secret to great results is the Bender Method of Core Training allowing you to get greater extension of a typical crunch. This small elastic ball fits snuggly under your back giving extension back and flexion forward, which works your muscles more effectively.
Pilates Fitness Balls
Constructed of soft elastic, it is most often used in athletic training, core strengthening and physical therapy. It can also be used for weight training with either your body weight or free weights.
Refers to any equipment used for weight training that is not connected to an external apparatus, like barbells, dumbbells, body bars and medicine balls.
An exercise machine used for weight training that uses gravity as the primary source of resistance. Provides multiple exercise stations that focuses on different muscle groups.
Using a medicine ball adds a whole new dimension to your training since it takes you through all planes of motions (unlike traditional weight training). A medicine ball requires a lot of work from your abs and back as most movement begins at the core. Using a medicine ball can help you train those trunk muscles.
This versatile tool is perfect for resistance training, stretching and balancing allowing you to tone your entire body.
Ab Wheel Rollers
An ab wheel works the core muscles in your lower torso, including the rectus abdominis in the stomach area, your hip flexors and the latissimus dorsi, which extend across your back from the pelvis to the shoulder. The most basic ab roller exercise, the rollout, works all these muscles. You can also use the ab wheel to work out your arms, shoulders and thighs.
Improves strength and balance in a full range of motion and let’s you target muscles specifically.
Foam rolling is a self-myofascial release stretching technique that has been embraced throughout the fitness industry. This effective and simple to do technique delivers positive, feel good results. Using the foam roller can deliver improvements in flexibility, muscle recovery, movement efficiency, inhibiting overactive muscles, and pain reduction with just minutes of application.
Jumping on a mini trampoline, also called rebounding, is a low-impact cardio workout that improves muscle tone and balance while torching 160 calories per 30 minutes of bouncing.
Balance training has a tremendous benefit for people of all ages and abilities and can be easily incorporated into an exercise routine. From fall prevention in the elderly, to the increased ability to generate power in a vertical jump for an athlete, and to a method to increase the force or resistance placed upon the body to increase strength balance training has a variety of applications.
Balance training is challenging the body to maintain proper postural control throughout a series of demands that can be placed upon it while standing still or through advanced transitional movements.
