Studio Spotlight: Senior Fitness and the Kinesis
You may have noticed (and experienced) a very unique piece of equipment at both Fitness Evolution studios.
Benefits of Kinesis Training
This special machine offers many unique features, including:
– Allows users to train in all planes of motion to easily mimic ANY movement of the human body
– Allows the body to function as a whole, not via isolating individual muscles
-The double weight stack allows multiple users to use the machine at once, and allows for varying resistance on each side of the machine
– The handles require no settings or adjustments beyond weight selection, making the Kinesis ideal for circuit training
This is great news for those returning to exercise after an injury, or for those with limited mobility.
-The kinesis can accommodate a wheel chair
-Lower risk of injury and reduced joint impact.
-Multiple exercise selection allows the client to stay in one place instead of having to move around the gym
– The unique cable design allows for small resistance adjustments, without changing the weight. Applying more tension to the cable (i.e. stepping away from the machine) causes an immediate increase in resistance
Is it “weight training?” Yes, it’s merely a different way to apply resistance with more freedom than with traditional free weights, machines or barbells.
