  Benefits of Hydraulic Resistance Exercise
 
     

Hydraulic Resistance Exercise (HRE) is based on a circuit of exercise stations, using hydraulic cylinders which provide a "double-positive" resistance. To better understand this, think about the resistance you experience when swimming.

The level of resistance automatically adjusts to your fitness level so as your fitness level increases, so does the level of resistance. The result is a combination of cardio and strength exercise, that matches your level of fitness.

 
 
 

Each exercise machine targets different muscle groups, and with variable resistance settings, members can alternate their routine between a cardio workout and a strenfth workout, or anywhere in between. .A system of interval training is used to go around the circuit.

The idea is to spend 30 - 40 seconds on one station, and then to move to a recovery station for another 30 - 40 seconds.

This system of interval exercise is proven to burn more kilojoules, whilst helping to tone and firm. Results happen quickly with HRE (Hydraulic Resistance Exercise). Within a week, members performing a simple 30 minute workout comment on how much their energy has improved and it isn't long before they begin to feel stronger and see changes.

Always on hand to offer support and advice, our instructors make the exercise more enjoyable. They help to encourage and keep members on track with their fitness workout.

Our easy-to-use equipment ensures that anyone, regardless of age or fitness level gets the perfect workout every time in a fun and supportive environment.

   

The 5 Benefits of Interval Circuit Training with Hydraulic Resistance Equipment

"How Exercise Benefits Women of All Ages"

5 important facts why all women should exercise.

No matter at what age a woman becomes physically active, an ever growing body of research continues to support the notion that the benefits of increased activity are tremendous, and extremely beneficial throughout a woman's life.

1. Avoid Weight Gain!

During midlife, the most common physical complaint among women is weight gain. This slow, but steady and persistent gain is something the majority of middle aged women experience. Research studies have shown that women who stay active throughout midlife have more lean muscle, greater metabolic rates and less weight gain then their sedentary peers.

2. Improve Sleep quality, daytime energy levels and prevents health problems!

Research has also shown that many of the other common ailments of middle aged women can be alleviated or controlled through exercise. Exercise can improve sleep quality and daytime energy levels, and help prevent chronic health problems such as high blood pressure, Type II diabetes, high cholesterol levels, depression and arthritis.

3. How to put up a fight against a Woman's most debilitating disease!

One of the most convincing reasons to begin an exercise program in midlife is to ward off the debilitating effects of osteoporosis. It is widely known that a woman's bone density begins to decline even before her midlife years, and bone loss accelerates after menopause. While most types of activity offer some protection against bone loss, weight bearing exercise such as walking, jogging and strength training seem to offer the greatest benefit.

4. Breast Cancer: Lower the risk by 20%

A growing body of evidence has linked regular exercise to lower the risk of breast cancer. Woman who exercise 1.5 hours per week have about a 20% lower risk of developing breast cancer than those who are inactive. That's just three 30 minute sessions per week .  

5. Exercise to Enjoy Life!

Exercise releases feel-good endorphins into your system. Add to this the physical benefits such as a better skin complexion, body shape, definition, you will also certainly feel stronger, happier and more positive about yourself.
