Designed to a set of agreed exercise principles targeting the four key areas of general wellbeing and fitness, the product range includes units designed for:

Cardio – the ability of the heart, lungs and organs to consume, transport and utilize oxygen. Regular exercise can increase cardiovascular fitness as the heart becomes more efficient at pumping blood and oxygen to the body, and the body becomes more efficient at using that oxygen.

Strength – the extent to which muscles can exert force by contracting against resistance. Strength training has several key benefits including bone density, injury prevention, boosts immunity and aids weight management.

Flexibility – the ability of a joint to move through its full range of motion. Stretching increases production of glycoaminoglycans, gel-like substances which help prevent muscle fibers sticking together. This assists a fuller, pain-free range of movement. Glycoaminoglycans also help repair collagen which protect and cushions joints.

Balance – the ability to maintain equilibrium against the force of gravity. Key benefits of balance training include increased coordination, increased sense of awareness and the body’s ability to control complex movements.
