Equipment Spotlight: Free Motion

In the back right corner of the Fitness Room there is an amazing line of equipment called Free Motion.  The circuit contains machines that will give the user a challening full body workout.

These machines all use cables which eliminates the fixed plane of motion you see with most strength machines.  Because there is not a set plane of motion the exercise becomes more difficult but more importantly more beneficial.  However, the design of the equipment makes it extremely simple to use as there are no adjustments that need to be made.

This equipment often gets overlook by many of our members, however as far as strength machines go they are my personal favorite.

If you would like help getting started on the Free Motion strength line here at the AFC come by and ask me or a Fitness Speciliast for help.  We’d be more than happy.

Finding Your Passion to Achieve your Personal Best

What do you love to do that is active?  When you were a kid, what were your favorite activities?Answering these questions can help put some passion in your workouts.  I used to love bike riding as a kid.  As an adult, I pursued it again.  I signed up for a race for a great cause, (MS) got fitted properly for a good racing bike and got all the gear to go with it.  I trained with others and had a great time accomplising my goal.  At the gym, I really liked heavy weight training.  I got a trainer and learned how to properly lift and gradually got stronger.  I still like to pursue new personal records by competing against myself. I am passionate about it because I love the sense of empowerment it gives me.   I would love to set up a training program designed especially for you to achieve any goal you want to pursue.   Dream, train, achieve!
