Squat racks and deadlift platforms are located towards the rear in our heavyweight section, with dumbbells and additional free weight barbells and landmines. In addition, there is the Connexus functional training station, open/free space, stretch machines, Hydro Massage Lounger (exclusive to NRG PLUS), core mats, and small equipment available for lend at the Fitness Centre desk.
