As a result of a number of suggestions put to us by our members, we now have additional new Gym equipment including free weight benches and an entire range of weighted plates. We hope this will reduce any waiting times for equipment during peak hours and allow more people to utilise the free weight area.
The weighted plates range from 1.25kg to 20kg and can be used in a number of ways. They are primarily used on the plate loaded resistance machines to add or remove weight during sets. The benefits of using plate loaded resistance machines compared to the normal pulley system machines include a greater range of weight that can be stacked and a more even workout.
