Our Life Fitness cardio equipment consists of treadmills, cross trainers, upright bikes, recumbent bikes and our Cardio Concept Rowers. Cardio or aerobic exercise improves the ability to use the maximum amount of oxygen during exhaustive work. Some of the major health benefits of aerobic exercise are gaining more efficient lungs by maximising breathing capacity, thereby increasing ability to ventilate more air in a shorter period of time. With aerobic exercise the heart becomes more efficient at functioning, and blood volume, Hemoglobin and red blood cells increase, enhancing the ability of the body to transport oxygen from the lungs into the blood and muscles. Metabolism will change and enable consumption of more calories without putting on weight.
Our Air Machine resistance equipment uses compressed air to simulate weights. It is used for rehabilitation in hospitals because it has a number of advantages over traditional weight systems. Firstly it is simple to use and because the weight is displayed on an LCD screen no one knows the weight except for you. It is also a very smooth system to use and will not jar as some weight systems do. While normal weights may appear to achieve the same thing, factors like friction and speed of movement can affect the amount of force but with air resistance equipment the force is always the same. It also has a distinct advantage as you are able to increase the weight in 1 kilo increments allowing you more control over the weight.
We have a range of free weights and benches. Benefits of weight training include increased strength, muscle mass, endurance, bone and bone mineral density, insulin sensitivity, GLUT 4 density, HDL cholesterol, improved cardiovascular health and appearance, and decreased body fat, blood pressure, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. With increases in muscle mass, the bodies metabolic rate also increases which promotes long-term fat loss and helps dieters avoid yo-yo dieting, Moreover, intense workouts elevate metabolism for several hours following the workout, which also promotes fat loss. Weight training also provides functional benefits. Stronger muscles improve posture, provide better support for joints, and reduce the risk of injury from everyday activities.
