Everybody’s Gym has a self-service child play area that is free to be used by children of all members taking a class. There are some free to use toys, a play desk, and basic art supplies but families are encouraged to bring in their own toys and activities. Wifi is available if you would like to use a phone/tablet. Special arrangements can be made for younger children who are able to nap or stay in a play yard.
Our gym features a large open field turf section that is primarily used in our group training sessions. The field turf is the same type of material used by professional sports teams like the Seattle Seahawks and Seattle Sounders FC. It’s a similar field surface to grass providing great traction and a soft feel.
One of our primary fitness tools is the russian kettlebell. The kettlebell is a fantastic tool for both strength development and cardio conditioning. Most kettlebell movements are compound exercises where you use multiple muscle groups with every movement. These compound moves burn more calories, strengthen both primary muscles and stabilizing muscles, and are easier on your muscles and joints then most repetitive machine assisted movements.
Kettlebells vary in weight from 8lbs up to 100lbs. The smaller bells are great for single hand movements like cleans, presses, and curls. The medium weight kettlebells are used for swings, snatches, goblet squats, farmer’s carries, and weighted lunges. The heavy bells can be used for bodybuilding movements such as the deadlift.
If you’re new to kettlebells that’s no problem, our instructors work with people of all levels, and will work with each person on proper technique to maximize the efficiency of movement and maximum results
Suspension training is a great way to control the amount of tension and effort being exerted. Using your own body weight you can lean out for more intensity or come closer or raise the angle to lower the intensity.
Pull ups are also part of suspension training and one of the best back exercises available. While many of the men and women of everybodys gym are able to do unassisted strict pull-ups we also utilize bands to help those that are still building up their ability to rep out multiple pull ups.
Everybody’s gym will also use barbells in it’s training. Barbells are the best tool for moving large amounts of weight. Moves such as the heavy back squat, dead lift, and bench press are compound moves that develop the central nervous system and really tell the body that it needs to burn fat and develop muscles. Our members start with an empty bar and using progressive overload will add weight in a controlled manner to the point where they can dead lift over 400 lbs.
Our barbells are used within our triple power rack to provide a safe and motivating environment.
