Whether you’re looking to tone or sculpt your body, body weight equipment provides the foundation for your exercises. They are designed to last, so they can be dropped and thrown without fear of being damaged.

So, what are the benefits of using commercial weight training equipment as a part of your workout routine?

Weight Increments Are Smaller – Whilst machines often jump in 10kg increments or even more, commercial weight equipment for sale allows you to make smaller increases as desired. Whether you’re using free weights or weight plates, the increase can be as little as 1kg.

Natural Range Of Motion – Machines actually restrict our range of motion through a pre-determined plane of movement. As everyone is different, there is no one-size-fits-all range of motion. Gym weight equipment in Melbourne instead provides a free range of motion.

Teaches Proper Form – It can be difficult to learn proper form when using a machine, but when using the best weight equipment on the market you will learn the mechanics of the human body and why you should be in a certain position to perform an exercise.

So, what are the benefits of regularly including free weights in your workout regime?


Injury Prevention

Lifting weights is one of the easiest ways to build muscle mass and improve bone density – which is critical for increasing balance and reducing the likelihood of injury through trips and falls. Strong bones reduce the chance of fractures, whilst strong muscles are key in supporting joints. 


Improved Metabolism

Whilst cardio workouts burn more calories during the actual exercise, lifting weights builds muscle – which burn more calories throughout the day, even when you aren’t exercising! This is known as the ‘afterburn effect’ and improves your metabolism for increased weight loss. 


Lowered Stress Levels

Through regular weight training, you can expect to see a reduction in both anxiety and depression, and an improvement in wellbeing and quality of life. This is due to the hormones that are produced during your workout - these benefits can be seen in as little as two sessions per week.

If you’re looking to tone or sculpt your muscles, weight equipment is a must. It is often available in either fixed-weight or adjustable options, the former allowing you to gradually progress kilo by kilo whilst the latter can be adjusted to the exact weight you require. A gym will require a range of different weights to ensure that any exercise can be performed.
