BMI Calculator

There is no standard ideal weight! According to nutritionists and doctors, the Body Mass Index (BMI) allows you to monitor your weight. Your body mass index can be calculated using the following formula :

Body mass index (BMI) = weight (kg) / height (m)2

The ideal body weight proportion to height is when your BMI is between 18.5 to 24.9. Below this, you are slightly too thin, above it, you are slightly too plump. Find-out if your weight is ideal with our quick & easy BMI calculator:

WHAT IS CARDIOVASCULAR WORKOUT?

1. Increased metabolic rate

WHAT IS STRENGTH TRAINING?
Weight and strength training is when you exercise with resistance to increase muscle mass and strength. However, strength training isn't all about building big muscles; using lighter weights with more repetitions (e.g. lift 1kg 20 times, instead of 10kg 10 times) will increase your metabolism and encourage fat loss without making you look like a body builder! However, if you do want larger muscles and increased strength, then you need to use heavier weights with lower repetitions. The benefits are:
1. Helps support bones and joints
2. Improves coordination, muscle control and mobility
3. Increases muscle mass and tone
4. Improves metabolic rate
5. Decreases risk of injuries

Our range of strength training equipment includes:

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EXERCISE WITH ROWING MACHINES?
Rowing is a seated aerobic exercise that is suitable for all users. It helps remove all the body weight from the ankles, knees and hips, moving the limbs and joints through a full range of motion, from completely extended to completely contracted. You can fold them to half their size, saving on space. The main thing to look for when buying a rower is the type of resistance it has.

TYPES OF RESISTANCE

1.
 
Magnetic – Controlled by electromagnets, this resistance provides a smooth, almost silent motion. It also allows you to control the level of resistance, creating the perfect workout for you.
2.
 
Air – The resistance on these models is determined by your pace, which means that the resistance increases when your pace increases. This allows you to have some control over your workout.
3.
 
Water – Just like air resistant rowers, the resistance level increases when your pace increases; however, the resistance and pressure levels can also be adjusted by adding or removing water in the tank.

BENEFITS

1.
 
This exercise benefits your back, improving suppleness and developing strong posture, through recruiting the muscles of the torso in equal proportions to the other major muscle groups of the legs and arms
2. Very low impact on joints.
3. Once you have developed the technique in using Rowing machines, the motion is flowing and overstraining is unlikely.
4. Form your own resistance, so the more energy you put in, the tougher the workout you give yourself.
5. Strengthens the heart and improves circulation.
6.
 
Heart rate compatibility means that you can monitor your performance and pace yourself at the required level, be it for fitness or fat-calorie burning
