Additional features are available on most exercise machines at Snap Fitness. These features allow you to personalize the equipment to meet your needs while increasing the level of enjoyment during the workout. Cardio machines, such as the treadmills and bikes, have a TV theater that keep you entertained during your cardio workout. The weight-training machines have adjustable weight to meet your fitness level with rubber coatings to eliminate excessive noise.
Types of Cardio Equipment
The different types of cardio fitness equipment at Snap Fitness will typically include treadmills, indoor bikes and elliptical machines. Most of the gyms will contain about five to 10 treadmills, depending on the size of the gym. The treadmills will feature shock absorption systems to reduce the impact to your joints with built-in programs to maximize your results. Recumbent bikes are available that feature a backrest and handles to monitor your heart rate. The elliptical machines provide a low-impact cardiovascular workout with pre-programmed workouts for strength training, weight loss or interval training.
Types of Strength Machines
Different types of strength training machines are available to provide single-joint or multi-joint movements. The single-joint movement machines will isolate one or two muscles and consist of machines such as leg extensions and leg curls. Multi-joint movements will train a group of muscles during the exercise and consist of the leg press and chest press machines.
Most of the exercise machines will contain instructions that explain how to perform the exercise and the muscles trained. Consult the gym owner or a personal trainer if you have any questions about how to adjust the machine. Increase the resistance and intensity slowly as your fitness level improves.
