Strength Training at Our Cape Coral Gym
Strength training provides more benefits than most people realize!
Just three short strength training workouts per week can yield tangible benefits. Even if you’re not in great shape now, you’ll notice changes in your body if you stick with your strength training program. That’s why our Gulf Coast Fitness
Cape Coral gym offers a variety of strength training gym alternatives.
Whether you prefer machine weights over free weights— or a mix of both, you’ll find plenty of what you need and want in our Cape Coral gym.
Strength Training With Free-Weights
Some like the functional everyday strength developed through strength training with free weights.
With free weights you get a full range of motion. They require a level of extra muscle coordination that helps replicate real-life movement. Free weight strength training exercises more muscles, making each workout more efficient.
Free weight strength training works really well for those training for a particular sport. Free weight strength training’s natural range of motions, transfers well to actual competition.
Plus free weights carry the inherent benefits of strength training in general:
- Develops Strong Bones
- Helps Control Weight
- Manages Chronic Aches and Pains
- Contributes to Mental Wellbeing
Strength training with a partner can produces the best results in the shortest time. Having a partner allows you to safely workout with more weight. Strength training with heavier weight obviously produces bigger muscles and greater strength.
You should always consult a physician before beginning any exercise program.
Strength Training With Machine Weights
Machine weights for strength training provide a great option if you’re working out alone.
If you normally use free weights, but need to fit-in a quick strength training workout, machine weights can be a great way to save time. They also work as a way to focus on that one muscle group you can’t quite get with the free weights.
Machine weight design allows those exercising solo to strength train with reduced risk and with little to no assistance. Machine weights also produce less stress on joints and surrounding muscle groups.
Machine weights come with their own set of advantages:
- Allow you to focus on one muscle group at a time
- Great way to start strength training or protect chronic injurie
- Assists with proper form (helping to prevent injury)
- Save time with easy weight setup
