Walking is often called the queen of exercises. First of all, it is the least traumatic kind of physical activity and there are no contraindications to it. Secondly, walking can be practiced at any age. And, finally, nothing is required for walking except your wish to walk. You can walk around the city, on the stairs, in the park and even in the apartment.
In “Okzhetpes” health and wellness complex, there are terrenkurs of various lengths in the open air; and if the weather is not good, you can use a treadmill. The duration and intensity of this type of exercise is prescribed by the doctor.
Power Plate is new generation premium-class equipment that is highly effective, universal and safe for integrated training of the whole body. You can use almost 100% of the muscle fibers during training, thus accelerating the metabolic processes in the body. Its platform sends the energy impulses throughout the body, which contributes to a frequent muscle contraction (25-50 times per second). To compare, 15 minutes of training with a minimum load on a Power Plate equals 1 hour of intensive training on the conventional simulators.
Exercising on a stationary bike offers an excellent general workout for your body. It brings the following results:
- an increase of volume of the lungs, a healing effect for respiratory system,
- general strengthening of the cardiovascular system, training of blood vessels and heart;
- strengthening the immune system, developing endurance;
- body shape correction.
Stationary bikes help to prevent cardiovascular disease, which is one of the most common causes of death at early age. Correct, regular exercises also produce a beneficial effect on blood pressure; they prevent hypertension, thromboembolism, heart attack, etc.
Moreover, the level of physical training of your body increases resistance to infectious diseases.
Upper Block Traction simulator
This simulator is used to train the back, especially the broadest muscle of back. This is an auxiliary breathing muscle that helps to expand chest during breathing, and helps your arms and shoulders to work under load such as swimming. Apart from that, powered muscles of the back contribute to a beautiful posture, properly curved spine, fewer headaches and many more benefits for health, body shape and beauty.
Before using the simulator, read the instructions explaining how to perform the exercises to avoid any micro trauma. And do not get carried away by using a lot of weight.
The quadriceps muscle of thigh – quadriceps – is one of the largest in the human body. It occupies the entire front part of the thigh. The main function of quadriceps is knee extension and, partially, hip extension. This muscle supports the joints and ligaments in the legs throughout the day, so it is necessary to train with low weight, especially during rehabilitation after leg fractures. This allows the muscle to regain its strength and elasticity. The key to such training is to use light weight. Otherwise you may hurt yourself.
An exercise ball is a special ball designed to perform a large number of physical exercises. It was originally developed by a Swiss physiotherapist for people with back problems. An exercise ball helped to strengthen back muscles, recover from injuries and surgeries, and improve posture. Today, it is used everywhere – in fitness centers and during home workouts.
A fitness room in “Okzhetpes” health and wellness complex is also equipped with dumbbells, barbells, hoops and other standard pieces of sports equipment.
