It also allows people with debilitating conditions such as Arthritis, Fibromyalgia; Multiple Sclerosis; Osteoporosis and Parkinson's disease to exercise without impact or placing stress on the joints and ligaments therefore bringing oxygen and blood flow to those areas to aid in healing. Vibration exercise will improve balance and coordination by activating the supportive muscles.

Dr Paul Dorian, a professor of Medicine at the Cardiology Division of St Michael's Hospital inToronto emphasizes that strength conditioning is an important element of heart health. He has been practising Power Plate for almost a number of years. "I was persuaded by the research which shows this is as good as, if not better than a personal trainer 2 to 3 times per week and ... safer than weght lifting and much less likely to lead to injury " (Toronto Life: Good Vibrations)

Power Plates are being used by many Pro Sports teams such as the NFL; the NHL and the NBL. Mike Weir trains on and owns a Power Plate as well as celebrities like Clint Eastwood; Tony Robbins and Cher. NASA and the Mayo Clinic use Power Plate at their facilities.

Treadmills Toronto

TREADMILLS: Matrix; Landice; Precor; Bodyguard and Spirit in Toronto

Treadmills are the only motorized piece of exercise equipment. This can be a real help with keeping motivated since the motor keeps the pace for you.

This is really one of the most basic machines to have in any commercial gym or fitness facility because it is suitable for all age groups and levels of fitness.

Walking or running is good exercise for the heart and lungs and building and maintaining bone density. It is also an excellent calorie burner.All treadmills let you control the speed and incline. Inclining mimics walking uphill and some treadmills like Bodyguard and Precor evn decline.

The number of people using the treadmill, the weight of the users and the numbers of hours the treadmill is in use will determine whether to consider a Light commercial model which is warrantied for up to 5 hours of use per day or a Full commercial which has no restriction as numberof hours per day. 

 

 

 

 
 

Ellipticals Toronto

ELLIPTICALS and Assent Trainers: Matrix; Precor; Landice; Bodyguard and Spirit in Toronto.

Unlike treadmills, each elliptical manufacturer provides a different feel. You should be able to move in a natural comfortable way, much like walking. Some models allow you to adjust the length of stride

Ellipticals are good for the heart and lungs and building and maintaining bone density. They are also a good calorie burner.They are are one of the few machines that exercise both the upper and lower body and are impact free. This is what makes them popular for users with bad back or knees.

Available in both Light and Full commercial models.

 

 
 

Exercise Bikes Toronto

EXERCISE BIKES: Matrix; Precor; Bodyguard; Landice; Lemond; Monark and Spirit in Toronto

Upright bikes were the first piece of exercise equipment to be manufactured and are commonly used in most fitness facilities. rehabilitation clinics and hospitals.

An excellent exercise for the heart and lungs and a good calorie burner. Although cycling will still build bone density it is not a weight bearing exercise. Cycling does build leg and calf muscles.

Fit is just as important on an exercise bike. Features like seat and handlebar adjustments are important but so is the hip to heel ratio.We can help you with this. The better the fit the less fatigued the user will become and the less stress on the joint; hips and ligaments. 

Most exercise bikes now use a magnetic form of resistance which will give you smooth and virtually silent ride.

A good choice if you are limited in space. Available in both Light and Full commercial use.

RECUMBENT BIKES: Matrix; Precor; Bodyguard; Landice; and Spirit.

Recumbent bikes are a good choice for users that find upright bikes too hard on the seat or back. Sitting in a recumbent or seated position focuses more on the back of the leg muscles and buttocks.

An excellent calorie burner and good for the heart and lungs. This is not a weight bearing exercise so not as good for bone density as compared to a treadmill or elliptical machine.

Fit is very important so look for lots of adjustability in the seat, a comfortable back support and a relatively narrow crank.

If you have users with limited mobility, a walk through design may be of benefit.

Available in both Light and Full commercial warranties.

Working with a machine rather than free weights allows you to exercise safely by guiding you through the movements. There are no weights to fall on you and by not having to move plates and bars around it is a far more time efficient use of your time.
