We use many different pieces of equipment at 4K Fit to aid in cardiovascular, functional, strength and cognitive training. This is a small list of our favorites to give you a better idea of some of the things we do!
TRX Suspension Training Straps
TRX straps are our favorite! They are one of the greatest and most versatile modern exercise tools. Using your own body weight and leveraging gravity, TRX straps help simultaneously develop strength, balance, flexibility, and core stability. These straps can benefit people of all fitness levels and can be easily modified by adjusting your stance and gravity’s effects.
Kettlebells are round cast iron weights with a handle on top. They help combine cardiovascular, strength, and flexibility training and often work several muscle groups simultaneously. We have them in weights ranging from 15 to 36lbs. The size you need to use depends on the exercise and your own strength and biomechanics.
Dynamic stability balls are giant weighted rubber balls that help develop core muscle strength and balance. The balls innate instability forces increased use of back and abdominal muscles.
Resistance bands come in different lengths, thicknesses, and tension levels. They work well for increased muscle stimulation and constant tension on muscles. They allow for a full range of motion, hitting small muscle groups free weights can’t easily target.
Dumbbells are free weights used for strength training. They can be used individually or in pairs depending on the type of exercise. We have dumbbells ranging from 2lbs. to 60 lbs.
A bosus is an inflated rubber hemisphere attached to a rigid platform. It looks like a stability ball cut in half. It is ideal for balance training and aerobic exercises. Either side of the bosus can be utilized.
A med ball is a heavy ball roughly the diameter of the shoulders. It is great for strength training and cardiovascular output. Works well for plyometric training: muscles exerting max force in short intervals for speed strength. Our med balls come in 4, 6, 8, and 10lbs.
Blades are a very different exercise tool, and need to be tried to fully understand them. They use your own force to create low level vibrations and inertia. The blade rapidly changes directions resulting in your body working to resist the force. They are great for muscle tone, core stability, and cognitive focus.
