KEISER

Keiser focuses on two elements of human performance: the force you produce and the speed at which you produce it. Keiser has influenced the training of athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and rehabilitation experts worldwide.

 

More than 80% of the top professional sports teams in the world now train on Keiser. Keiser offers everything from elite testing equipment to strength and stretching machines. Keiser equipment can be found in fitness centers, sports clubs, and health clubs worldwide.

 

Below are some of the equipment types that Keiser offers:

 

Spin Bikes

Also referred to as stationary bikes, or indoor cycle machines. These machines offer a seat, pedals, handles, and a consul. Just like riding a bike, you start by adjusting your machine to your height. Next, strap your feet into the foot straps, and adjust the consul to your specific workout needs.

 

While the energy demand from Spin bikes is not as high as running, as on a treadmill, they provide a calorie-burning heart pumping challenge and total body workout. They strengthen your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and hip flexors.

 

Spin bikes are not high impact, and they are easier on the joints than treadmills. They are a great option if you have a sore upper body, if you have back or lower body injuries, or if you want long duration endurance training.

 

Recumbent Bikes

 

Recumbent bikes have the seat back, pedals out in front of the user, and consul directly ahead. recumbent Bikes are not weight-bearing so they can be easier to start out with. Similar to Spin bikes, these give pretty good all-around lower body strength boosting benefits during your cardio session.

 

Recumbent bikes work with hamstrings and quads evenly as compared to spin bikes, which focus exclusively on quads. However, recumbent bikes may offer less fat reduction when you train at a higher level. Sprint training is a less convenient option on recumbent bikes than it is on spin bikes.

 

Recumbent bikes are one of the lowest intensity cardio machines and thus a great option if you are looking to read or catch up on a football game while getting in your daily movement.

 

Functional Trainers

 

Functional Trainers are an extremely versatile piece of exercise equipment. Functional Trainers allow you to work the most muscle groups in the widest variety of ways and they are safe for all age groups capable of resistance training. A Functional Trainer is a piece of equipment that incorporates multiple cables (usually 2) and attachments so you can perform any directional movements such as pulls, flys, curls, and everything in between.

 

Functional Trainers make it easier on the gym-goer as these machines do not require a spotter when performing heavy lifts. They also allow for the user to work with a great range of motion, giving more versatility to their workout. These cable machines allow you to use every different muscle as you can easily switch up the plane of movement.

 

When using a Functional Trainer you have a variety of options to meet all of your training needs. Functional Trainers are a great option for your gym as they encourage you to not just stick to one repetitive motion but to engage different parts of the body with a full range of motion for training exercises that will enhance your well-being.

 

Squat Racks and Power Racks

 

Squat Racks and Power Racks are a helpful workout station for barbell exercises. A rack is designed to support weight when doing squat variations. Two adjustable metal posts comprise the squat stand or rack, which support the barbell.

 

Power Racks, also referred to as power cages, have four feet connected by four metal bars overhead. Power Racks have three stabilizing legs and two safety bars in the event that you drop the bar. These safety bars protect you from being crushed by the weight of the bar were you to drop it.

 

Power Racks allow you to lift heavier. They are made of thick steel and can last an extremely long time. While they are an investment upfront, Power Racks are worth investing in for your home or commercial gym because they offer a multitude of exercise options. With a Power Rack alone you can do a full-body workout with weights. You may use Power Racks for bench pressing, squats, pull-ups, and a whole host of other exercises so they are truly multipurpose.

 

The Squat Rack consists of two steel stands with one or more pins which can be attached to one another or completely separate. It is used to rack and un-rack your barbell when performing exercises like bench presses or squats. Squat Racks are not as sturdy as the power rack. They do not have as much flexibility with workout options as Power Racks, but are effective options for many of the same movements. Squat Racks are similar to Power Racks, but smaller and less sturdy. Squat Racks are a cheaper option and they are easier to use in a smaller space. They are also easier to move around.

 

Power Racks allow you to lift heavier and can also be used for pull-ups and chin-ups. Power Racks are made of thick steel and last a very long time.
