For exercising with weights there is a good range of dumbbells, a dual action pulley, a range of medicine balls and power bags, and a max-rack for those who wish to perform bar-bell exercises in a safe environment, in addition to the more traditional weight machines.
Miscellaneous equipment includes, gym ball, benches, raised step, and a fully programmed Power Plate, providing whole body vibration technology to accelerate your training.
