Muscular Endurance Resistance Training

Many people would like to work out and take good care of their body, but not everyone knows where to start.
This is why we have put together a 10 step training check list for those who would like to train and strengthen their muscles.

  1. Warm Up and stretch all major muscle groups
  2. Decide on which muscle groups you will train
  3. Have a training partner/spotter
  4. Take into account your previous experience, current fitness, injuries and training focus
  5. Posture, seat height, correct technique
  6. Breath out for work phase, breath in on the relax
  7. For muscle endurance = low weights, high reps
  8. Start of easy and build up your training => apply “Progressive Overload”
  9. Start of doing 8 reps x 2 sets at a weight that is challenging, but manageable
  10. Always warm down and stretch afterwards

If you would like more tips or if you have any questions about your training, please don’t hesitate to ask our staff. We are here to help you.

New access time for members: 5.30am

From now on members with access tags will have access to the facilities from 4.00am to 10.00 pm, 7 days a week (excluding Christmas & New Years Day).

Several of our members requested if they could have access earlier than the previous 5.00 am starting time. Their requests have been discussed with the Board and it has been decided that the opening time for members can be pushed back by an hour. This now makes the facilities available from 4 am on for key tag holders, for all those early birds in our Community.

Please see our Opening Hours for office hours and other opening times.
