We’re open and here for you:
We hope you’re enjoying being back at your Oldham Active centres. Our activities are delivered in a socially distanced way. Keep checking our covid webpage and social media for any updates.
Research has shown that free weights promote quicker strength gains and they require more balance and coordination than resistance machines. Free weights recruit more muscle groups and more muscle fibers than variable resistance machines, which tend to only isolate specific muscles. This means that you can burn more calories! Download our Hints and Tips leaflet for examples of Free Weight exercises.
The Power Plate is the innovative, time-saving and results-driven way to improve your fitness and wellbeing. It works by accelerating the body’s natural response to vibration and stimulating various muscle groups, giving you a full body workout, including stretching, strengthening and toning all in as little as 30 minutes! Find out more on the benefits of using Power Plates including some simple steps in our Hints and Tips leaflet.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a type of cardio training that alternates between short, very high intensity intervals and longer, slower intervals to recover. It’s been shown to benefit the average exerciser and it also improves the ability of the muscles to burn fat. See how to implement HIIT using various equipment such as bikes, treadmill and rowing machines in the HIIT Hints and Tips leaflet.
Plyometrics are designed to increase muscular strength and power and are a form of conditoning training or “jump training” used by athletes. The average exerciser can use this form of training to increase power, endurance and burn more calories. Why not download our Plyometrics Hints and Tips leaflet to get more out of your workout!
