To compliment cardiovascular fitness, Exodus Health & Fitness has over 100 pieces of technologically advanced weight training equipment, which is dedicated to its own area on the second floor of the club.
To maintain the tempo in this weight training area, monitors throughout this level have been installed displaying SKY Sport, SKY News, TV1, 2, 3, Entertainment or a continuous music channel. Attached to each piece of equipment is fitlinxx, first of its kind in a Wellington gym.
Hippocrates explained the principle behind weight training when he wrote "that which is used develops, and that which is not used wastes away."
Weight training is a common type of strength training for developing the strength and size of skeletal muscles. It uses the force of gravity (in the form of weighted bars, dumbbells or weight stacks) to oppose the force generated by muscle through concentric or eccentric contraction. Weight training uses a variety of specialized equipment to target specific muscle groups and types of movement.
Weight training differs from bodybuilding, weightlifting, power lifting, and strongman, which are sports rather than forms of exercise. Weight training, however, is often part of the athlete's training regimen.
