Weight training has really grown in the past few years with more people understanding the benefits of strength training to remain flexible and strong. Training with weights also affectively burns calories.
A multi station gym comes with anywhere from 1 to 4 stacks of weights allowing up to 4 people to use the machine at the same time and perform a number of exercises off of each stack of weights. 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.
