World Class Strength Equipment

Designed with High Intensity Training in mind, the machines used at Muscles in Motion are biomechanically engineered.

In short, biomechanical engineering is the combined use of mechanical engineering principles and biological knowledge to better understand how these areas intersect and how they can be used together to potentially improve people’s quality of life. 

What does this mean specifically about the pieces of equipment that have been selected at Muscles in Motion personal training studio? That they can be adjusted to fit nearly any body type appropriately! An added bonus is the high quality of padding used… if you’ve ever felt the weight of a bar through the thin padding of a less superior piece of equipment, you know the value that quality padding brings to your workout! 

Brands you can expect to use at MIM:

Hammer Strength
Black Iron- dumbbells and barbells 

A deep dive into a few of our favorites:

1. Nautilus.

Introduced to the world in 1970, Nautilus machines were significantly different than anything else on the market before them. One particular unique feature of these exercise machines was the Nautilus CAM, a specially designed pulley mechanism that was shaped like a nautilus shell (hence the name Nautilus).

The Nautilus CAM was so innovative to strength machines because it changes the way resistance is applied. When a cable with weights is pulled over a round pulley, the resistance is consistent, but when a nautilus shaped or oval CAM is used, the resistance is varied. This is due to the distance between the cable and the CAM’s pivot point changing as the CAM rotates. The load is lighter at the beginning and end of the motion with the full resistance in the middle. The variable resistance follows the body’s natural strength curve and makes for a much better workout.

2. MedX.

In 1986, Arthur Jones founded MedX to perfect the testing of human strength, endurance and range of motion. 

After years of development and testing, validated by independent research teams at the University of Florida, MedX perfected its medical Lumbar Extension machine (low back machine)

It has since helped tens of thousands of people around the world reduce or eliminate their back pain while increasing their function and quality of life.

3. Hammer Strength.

Hammer Strength is the No. 1 brand for elite athletes because it can take the pounding they dish out, and, most importantly, it’s designed to provide results. 

Hammer Strength is committed to turning steel into world-class strength equipment with world-renowned durability. That’s why Hammer Strength equipment is tested to exceed industry standards, ensuring that it can hold up to years of even the most intense training programs.
