More Renovations to Our Fitness Center
NEW!Fitness Center has expanded into Racquetball Court 4. The new strength and conditioning room has alleviated crowding in the weight room and we have added new equipment:
Wall Board w/Dynamax Medicine Balls - balls of various weights are thrown against plywood from various positions and caught, to increase reactive time, explosive power and strengthen core.
Cybex Eagle Prone Leg Curl - this machine isolates the hamstrings while taking pressure off the lower back.
Startrack Maxrack - this equipment allows both vertical and horizontal movements. Unlike the standard machine, now you can forward lunge with a 65 lb. bar instead of the standard 45 lb. bar.
Cybex Multirack - for heavy lifting and Olympic movements: Bench pressing, squats, dead lifts and power cleans. The shock-absorbent floor allows more freedom and better placement of weights.
Power Ropes - anchored to the wall and used to increase strength and endurance, they specifically target shoulders.
Any of the Fitness Center instructors will be happy to show you the equipment, which you are urged to try with supervision until you become comfortable.
We're making our Fitness Center even better. Come see all the improvements!
