The design of Life Fitness’s selectorised equipment has evolved over the years, with the aim of making it accessible and welcoming to more users.
First and foremost, it needs to enable the user to work the muscle intended in the best and most efficient way, with ergonomic support and easy options for adjustment that ensure it fits as many users as possible.
All our equipment is designed in this way, so those who are new to strength training can exercise safe in the knowledge that by following the guidelines, the machine will deliver the workout as intended.
Every machine displays a visual representation of the exercise and what muscle groups it uses, to help exercisers understand its purpose and how to use it effectively. Weights increase in increments of 2.5kg so there’s no need for big jumps. All this makes people feel more confident as they build their understanding of strength training.
We’ve also reduced the footprint of a lot of our equipment, so it isn’t quite so daunting in appearance, and introduced tinted shrouds and set the seat height to help provide privacy during exercise, which can be especially important to new members getting used to the machines.
Life Fitness and Hammer Strength selectorised equipment travels through a scientifically-researched set pattern of movement so you have no option but to follow it, reducing the risk of getting it wrong, but also encouraging natural, comfortable movement.
Our Life Fitness Academy (LFA) trainers work with our customers to help them deliver instructions to members on how to use each piece, which is key in building confidence and competence while training. Along with guidance on our social channels, website and the Halo app, we’re also launching a campaign later this year to help women who have concerns or nerves about getting into strength training.
Selectorised kit will always have a place on gym floors as, coupled with good instruction, it offers a safe and simple introduction to resistance training.
