Best Beginner Tips for Using Commercial Gym Equipment
At Advanced Exercise, we serve the newest and most in-demand market in the fitness industry today. Our biggest markets include multifamily properties, corporate wellness in business complexes and educational facilities, all of which have longtime gym attendees as well as those who are new to the fitness environment. Life Fitness and HAMMER STRENGTH® lines of commercial gym equipment are in high demand because they are easy to use and easily customizable for each individual’s needs. It can be easy to forget that after an installation is complete, there are going to be both new and seasoned members using the equipment. So we decided to make a handy guide for those who are new to using the gym environment. We want to address their concerns regarding what to use and how it would benefit them. Here you will find the name of each popular commercial exercise equipment platform and which muscle groups each one targets. This should help newcomers transition into their workout routine relatively easily. If you are a newcomer to the gym, you will love these fitness machines. For those interested in trying them, here are a few tips:
- Be careful with the weight stack selection. Be aware of what you can realistically lift and don’t try to lift too much or you risk injury.
- You can also adjust the seat and back for most of the pieces of pulley-weight machines. Some operate with a twist turn knob, and others are a smooth knob.
- Come prepared with a hand towel or wash cloth to wipe down equipment as necessary. Most gyms have cleaning solutions for members to use to help sanitize equipment after use. This is less of a safety issue and more in line with gym etiquette. You don’t want to lie or sit in someone else’s sweat, so be courteous and wipe down the bench when you’re finished!
