For those of you with limited time for the gym, you need to be concentrating on exercises that work and recruit as many muscles as possible. Sure you can use a machine and work out a single muscle group decently, but your range of motion is extremely limited – you can push it out, and then lower it back to the starting position.
When you use free weights, your body has to use every single muscle to keep the weight stabilized as you raise and lower it. Because you’re using these extra muscles (that you’re not using if you’re on a machine) to keep things steady as you lift, you’re getting more done in less time!
Kardio Kick Gym is a family owned and operated fitness center. The owners, Ty and Marsha Mapes, have a passion for fitness, competitive edge, are enthusiasts, personal trainers, and often times are involved in competitions (such as weight bench pressing). You will always find the owners and many instructors on hand at the gym.
There will always be someone on hand that will show you how to use the equipment and weights so that you do it correctly, achieve results, and do not sustain injury. We feel it's important to know the equipment, and to have a good routine to follow, so you dont get bored or hurt.
