If you’ve ever been curious about the Kinesis machine, or maybe intimidated, let us introduce you to this amazing all-in-one total body workout. This machine isn’t your 1980’s cable and pulley system. The Kinesis Wall is a full body machine with the opportunity to move your body across 3 planes of movement.
What this means to you is that the unique 3-D design of the Kinesis machine gives your body a practically endless amount of natural body exercises to incorporate into your workout routine, or use as a standalone exercise. You also have the ability to use the machine solo, with a physical trainer, or in a group exercise class setting. Due to its cross-functionality, the Kinesis machine can help you burn 30% more calories than a regular workout, gain overall strength and endurance, and burn fat. Because it combines cardio and full-body resistance into a complete multi-plane workout sculpting the body from every angle. Basically - you’re able to train your muscles in an integrated, rather than isolated, fashion.
How to Use the Kinesis Wall
One option is to try out a class where Kinesis is integrated in a circuit training group exercise class using the four-station Kinesis Wall, a vertical system of cables and weights that includes cardio, strength, and flexibility exercises. Each class encompasses exercises at eight stations; four stations on the wall and four stations off of the wall. Station exercises include use of free weights, resistance bands, and cardio equipment (such as a stationary bike, rower, and elliptical) to complement the Kinesis Wall. The Kinesis machines are unlike any other type of cable machine because they allow full range of motion, ensuring free, unrestricted movements. This unique type of weight training allows for more functionality and more fluidity within the exercises as participants improve core strength, agility, flexibility, and balance.
The Kinesis machine can also be used solo or in a personal training session. With the ability to customize and fine tune just about every aspect of your Kinesis routine, from weight to resistance to intensity, you’re giving your body the ability to keep making progress and avoid fitness plateaus (and boredom!). Traditional weight machines only allow the body to move in one direction, whereas the Kinesis machine moves in a 3-D direction. This triggers those short- and fast-twitch muscles which aids in better conditioning of overall strength and balance.
The High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) style of circuit training implemented in the Kinesis class focuses on full-body movements for maximum results. Participants work at each station for one to two minutes before moving on to the next station. This format of high-intensity intervals mixed with lower-intensity intervals confuses the body, making it work harder and burn more calories.
Great for Any Fitness Level
With the ability to customize and fine tune your workout, Kinesis is a great option for participants looking for a lower-impact workout, or even rehabilitation, that gives great results. If you’re struggling with an injury from overuse or perhaps even an acute issue, Kinesis offers the flexibility to work major and minor muscle groups in that 3-D fashion, allowing the body to rehabilitate and also stay active. However, as with any exercise program, to see results one must stay consistent. Studies show that those who exercise with a group are more likely to stick with a workout routine and get results. With the growing popularity of Kinesis, the Village sees many loyal participants come back again and again. By joining a class, you’re likely to form great relationships with your teammates as you work towards achieving your fitness goals.
The Village offers multiple Kinesis classes at various times throughout the week, and all of our Kinesis classes are instructed by highly qualified personal trainers to ensure safety and effectiveness.
