Fitness Center – A Range Of Equipment

The Fitness Center is continuing in its development.  Currently it includes:

A complete 12 unit Cybex selectorized system which can be the basis for any of the following:
  • a fantastic circuit based cardio routine
  • High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) for cardio:resistance balance
  • strength based and mass building routines.
Additional Equipment
  • a training cage is in place for chin-ups, dips, vertical knee and leg raises and other body weight exercises
  • a heavy bag and speed bag platform are also available
A wide range of training & fitness equipment
  • approximately 3,000 pounds of free weights with tri-grip plates
  • commercial urethane coated dumbbells from 5-95 pounds
  • squat rack
  • benches
  • high and low pulley
  • plyo boxes
  • glute-ham developer
  • recumbent bike
  • inversion table

As we continue to develop and expand, suggestions for new equipment are welcome.

Independent Fitness Center Agreements

If you want to make it happen, I want to see it a reality.  A full year comes down to just an average of approximately $2 per day or $60 per month when paid in full.  This can be a significant upfront fee, but the discount is offered specifically for this level of commitment.

Again, there is no added cost for gym access for any active medical plan members.  Medical plan members can receive more in-depth and personalized exercise and nutrition support above and beyond basic gym members.

credit-cardsMajor credit cards may be accepted and can ease the impact by paying upfront or through recurring billing.  Credit card services do have a user fee associated with them.  Please discuss these options with Dr. Ross if these would be of interest for you.
