Multi Gyms

A home Multi Gym is a strength training device which can be a replacement for a free weights training system (dumbells and barbells and weights benches) or used in conjunction with free weights for very comprehensive resistance programmes.

A Multi Gym Versus Free Weights

A multi gym has some advantages over a free weights approach. Space and tidyness as well lifting in safety are the most common factors that appeal to most buyers of multi gyms. Access to a lat pulldown, which is an integral part of most multi gyms, is another plus point. And some home gyms are designed to include a leg press which is a big bonus.

Some people worry that using weights or multi gyms for exercise will quickly produce huge muscles and make them look like bodybuilders, but it takes years of hard work with weights, constantly pushing for heavier poundages to produce significant gains in muscle size.

So a multi gym may not suit someone who is keen to develop strength or muscularity to their fullest potential, because whilst a multi gym will allow for progressive resistance training the size of its weight stack will eventuallly be a limiting factor. But for the average person or family, a multi gym is a convenient, safe way to either tone, strengthen or build muscle to a moderate level.

Build Muscle and Burn Calories

Many people see cardio-vascular machines such as treadmills and cross trainers as the only solution to burning calories and getting in shape, but it should be pointed out that muscles need calories to perform everyday tasks. So the more toned those muscles the more energy they require. Plus, toned muscles can improve posture. Toning and improving shape can be achieved quite quickly, and be beneficial when performing everyday manual tasks.

For the past few years the one brand name that stands out in the field of home multi gyms is Inspire Fitness who have become, in our opinion, the benchmark for functional performance and visual styling, and our recommendation as the best that is currently available in the UK marketplace.
