Cardio Equipment

Cardio Equipment; Why cardio training?

Cardio is defined as any type of exercise that gets your heart rate up and keeps it up for a prolonged period of time. Your respiratory system will start working harder as you begin to breathe faster and more deeply. Cardio is great for weight loss and stamina purposes. All of our cardio equipment has a heart rate reader and emergency stop features to ensure safe usage.


Stair Master

Our new Technogym stair master is impressive state of the art machinery. The stair master replicates the action of climbing flights of stairs. This intense cardio is fantastic for weight loss, it also has resistance settings making it a great workout for your leg muscles, toning as well as shaping your lower body muscles. Our stair master is fitted with sensors, stopping the machine when you step off. As well as built in workouts.



We currently have 3 Technogym treadmills. Using a treadmill is an excellent way of burning calories and losing weight. A treadmill has many different speed options to mimic walking running and sprints, there is also a gradient option to elevate the floor level and increase intensity. Our treadmills have built in workouts to follow as well as visual presentations to follow. If you are running outside and your knees are straining, a treadmill is a good alternative as there is elasticity on the belt creating a softer platform for impact, protecting the knees. If your knees are sore when on the treadmill, we suggest the cycle machine and cross trainer as your knees are not baring weight.


Cycle Compact Exercise Bike 

Our techno gym exercise bike is a fantastic cardio machine for weight loss and joint care. This machine has an adjustable seat, hart rate reader, and built in work outs on screen. Upright bikes are more similar to a traditional outdoor bike, where you mount the bike and your upper body is not supported by a back rest. While training on an exercise bike, you will primarily work your lower body muscles: your calves, thighs and glutes.  


Cross Trainer

 The cross trainer, also known as an elliptical trainer, a stationary piece of cardio machinery that allows users to replicate a walking or running motion, without the impact to joints caused by the feet hitting a hard surface. It's a low impact way to train the cardiovascular system and engage muscles throughout the body. 

Ready to get more active? Great. Just remember to start with small steps. If you've been inactive for a long time or if you have a chronic health condition, get your doctor's OK before you start.

When you're ready to begin exercising, start slowly. You might walk five minutes in the morning and five minutes in the evening. Any physical activity is better than none at all.

The next day, add a few minutes to each walking session. Pick up the pace a bit, too. Soon, you could be walking briskly for at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week, and reaping all the benefits of regular aerobic activity. You can gain even more benefits if you exercise more. Also aim to sit less and move more during the day.

Short of time? Try a high-intensity interval training workout and enjoy a great workout with similar benefits as a standard aerobic workout in less time. In interval training, you alternate between short periods of intense activity and longer periods of less intense activity.
