Variations in traditional gym use are less common. Fitness equipment will continue to evolve and improve, and new devices such as “Power Plate” that offer vibration training can become popular. However, it must be considered whether any new trend is likely to last long enough to justify the investment.
A concept that uses vibration to improve strength and flexibility. The training works with the body’s natural reflexive reaction system. The user performs a series of exercises while standing on a “vibration base plate”. Training can also be used for physiotherapy, rehabilitation, treatment of disorders, geriatric fitness and revitalization.
Teams Connected to PC / Games Console:
Some fitness equipment companies have connected game consoles to train machines so that the user’s physical input “feeds” the video game. The controller and the screen are an integral part of the team and the machines can be linked together for interactive competition. These prove popular among the markets for teens and young adults.
Due to the popularity of the turns, cross-training is often offered in small groups, which together provide balanced training. The user group practices under the supervision of a trainer and travels among them. This means that the equipment banks have to be “reserved” for the cooperation of the group.
This form of one-to-one interaction has always been popular with athletes and the most affluent fitness enthusiast.
Gyms now offer more affordable personal training for everyone, and many are starting to make use of it.
The personal trainer will evaluate each user and offer a program adapted to the realistic and appropriate week for them. Depending on the requirements, a workout may use all or part of the exercise set, and a separate room is often provided for stretching exercises on the floor.
Athletes and professional athletes need special gyms during training. These may be affiliated with certain sports clubs or university facilities. In addition to typical gyms, there are specialized facilities that offer medical and training support to national and international athletes.
Force plates can be used to test different aspects of an athlete’s performance. The force plates are placed on the ground and the athlete performs various activities, with the results being analyzed by the computer.
The results of the tests can be used to design specific training programs tailored to the specific needs of each athlete and the monitoring and subsequent performance tests.
Stretching and Conditioning:
In conjunction with the specific training required for athletes, stretching and conditioning can be used to enhance physical and physiological development. Stretching and conditioning include plyometric exercises, speed and agility, strength and core stability, and strength training. The training sessions are individually tailored to each athlete, depending on his needs. Sports clubs can offer this program in their gyms, and some general gyms can also offer it as a personal training option.
