Many people that walk into a gym for the first time are often immediately drawn to the racks of free weights. They seem more simple and easy to use than weight machines or other training equipment, and the learning curve is perhaps lower with free weights. But, as with any weightlifting equipment, it’s important that you know how to use them properly. At Loveland Athletic Club’s weight room in Northern Colorado, we’ll gladly show you how to get the most out of your lifting sessions.

Whether you want to build muscle, or simply tone the muscle that you already have, we can design a personal plan just for you. By working with one of our personal trainers, you can learn to use free weights properly and not put unnecessary strain on your body. You can learn how to do curls correctly, as well as rows, flies, and other beneficial lifts. Also, choosing the correct weight is very important, as you don’t want to try to lift a dumbbell that’s too heavy for you, nor do you want to pick one that’s too light and won’t work your muscles as you’d like. We can provide assistance in this area as well.

People can be intimidated by weightlifting and there is perhaps a certain stigma that’s associated with weight rooms, but at our Northern Colorado location in Loveland, we can help you better understand free weights and how they can help you build and tone muscle.
