We use SuperSlow, MedX, RenEx, and retrofitted Nautilus machines at The Strength Studio.
These machines are designed to engage the body in accordance with muscle and joint function. They do this by giving you the right resistance at the right time through specially engineered cams. Some of the machines are compound, targeting more than one muscle group but many isolate hard to target muscles through unique, patented designs. The design has also considered the body's intended movement of the muscle and positioning that will allow the safest movement under meaningful resistance, resulting in ergonomic components on several of them. The specificity of each machine affords us the opportunity to tailor our routines to the individual needs of each member based on their health history and present-day wellness.
All machines required specialized knowledge to administer.
Having specialized machines isn't enough in and of itself. The machines can be hazardous if used by someone not well-trained in their administration. This is the reason we do not permit self-guided training sessions. A well-versed clinical strength trainer knows how to use the machines to solicit the desired response from the body in order to enhance health.
For your safety, a clinical strength trainer should know the point of axis on each machine, the origin and insertion of targeted muscles groups for said machine, the intended movement of such muscles, and the joint around which the machine is focused. Without this information, there is no basis of knowledge for administration of the machine. At The Strength Studio, Inc. we make it a point to ensure that each trainer learns the intricacies of each machine not only upon employment but continuously throughout their careers with us.
