Technogym is a Physiotherapist led session.
Technogym circuit class runs as a block of 6 weeks with one session per week. It consists of 8 pieces of Easy line Hydraulic equipment to provide an overall body exercise programme.
NB. The Technogym equipment is also available to use in the Extended Gym sessions. This session doesn’t regularly run as a minimum of 6 members are required. Most members use this as part of the Extended gym
The Technogym circuit class starts with a seated warm up to gently raise heart rate and warm up individual muscle groups to be used. A quick demonstration by the Physio of each piece of equipment follows before members are seated on their starting piece of the equipment. After a minute of exercise, they rotate to the next piece of equipment until all 8 are completed.
Emphasis is placed on good technique, quality of movement incorporating individual’s needs and restrictions and having fun.
The class ends with a seated cool down and stretches, followed by a group discussion to decide if the resistance of the machines needs altering or length of time used. A majority agreed decision is made for the following session and reviewed weekly.
