In the Wellness Suite you’ll find the latest touch screen CV equipment to make sure you get the best possible workout, but there’s so much more than just rowing machines, spin bikes and treadmills. We have embraced the concept of movement training with Kinesis and ARKE which helps rediscover natural movement tailored to the needs of the individual user.
Movement training is characterised by freedom of movement – unrestricted movement in all ranges of motions and directions. With greater freedom of movement comes increased overall wellbeing, more efficiency in work, improved sports performance, recovery of functionality after injury and prevention of injury.
Each Kinesis machine has a Double Weight Stack, each cable controls a single one of those weight stacks. This allows greater freedom in exercise definition and resistance selection. Kinesis has a three dimensional 360° rotating pulley system on three planes. This allows users to move tri-dimensionally whilst providing resistance to every possible movement of the human body.
ARKE is a system of small training tools to improve movement. The ARKE tools can be used to progress from small basic moves to more challenging training regimes. The ARKE equipment can be used either for bodyweight exercise e.g. standing on a soft pad to improve balance or in conjunction with other equipment e.g. adding an unstable surface to strength exercise performed on the kinesis.
