What are Yorkshire Brewery Apartments?

A restorative renew of the old Yorkshire Brewery this new development of beautiful apartments in Collingwood was a fantastic project for the Calibre Fitness team. 

What was the Project?

Engaged by the developers Calibre was counted on to provide fitness equipment which would be durable and reliable for the new residents of these fantastic apartments. 

Our Client's Thoughts?

"Steve and Glen from Calibre provided an excellent level of service from day one. After meeting onsite and assessing the space available they recommended the most appropriate equipment that could be used within a large scale residential development. The result was purchasing suitable treadmills and bikes that can be used daily by over 700 residents. Overall my experience with Calibre was fantastic. I would definitely recommend them to other property developers looking to purchase gym equipment for a project of any size" Ben McCann

There are so many different pieces of home gym equipment out there and if you are just getting set up it can be overwhelming trying to decide what to get. There are a number of different factors you’ll need to consider when choosing what equipment to buy for your home gym, including how much space you have, your level of fitness and personal exercise preferences and goals.

Gym equipment doesn’t come cheap and you want to make sure that you choose pieces that will give you the best possible results and provide a versatile, full body workout. We’ve made it easier for you to decide with our five recommendations for the best home gym pieces.

  1. 1.Multi Gym

This must-have piece of gym equipment lets you work your whole body in a variety of different ways. Great for strength training and maximum space efficiency, a multi gym should be at the top of your home gym shopping list. You can find an excellent range of multi gym options to suit all budgets and levels of fitness here.

  1. 2.Rower

Rowing machines are fantastic for home use. They take up relatively little space and offer a full cardiovascular workout as well as improving upper and lower body strength. Unlike many other forms of cardiovascular exercise like running and cycling, rowing works your whole body including your legs, your core and your upper body and back. Find out more about our rowing machines here.

  1. 3.Flat/incline/decline Bench

A good quality adjustable weight bench should be the cornerstone of your home gym. Adjustable weight benches are more versatile than traditional benches and when coupled with a weight rack they can help you meet all your strength training goals safely and effectively. Ideal for home use, adjustable benches are more mobile than traditional weight benches, and are usually easier to store. Check out the different types of adjustable weight benches to find the one that’s right for you.

  1. 4.Smith Machine/Power Racks

When you’re working out at home, you need to be aware of safety. Lifting weights alone without a spotter can be dangerous and a weight rack can help you stay safe by catching the weight if something goes wrong. As well as helping you work out safely, a weight rack is versatile and will enable you to do a number of strength exercises that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to. There are plenty of different weight rack options out there to suit different budgets and levels of fitness.

  1. 5.Free Weights

A good quality set of free weights is the staple of any home gym. With your own weights you can do a huge range of different exercises and work every muscle in your body. Free weights come in all manner of different shapes and sizes to suit your exercise goals and fitness levels.

Getting these five essential pieces for your home gym will get you off to a great start and help you reach your fitness goals safely and effectively without even having to leave the house.

Training at home is the ideal solution for anyone who doesn’t want to go to the gym. Many people choose to train at home because they don’t enjoy working out in a gym environment, or because their schedules are hectic and they have trouble getting to the gym. Fortunately, family commitments, erratic work hours or shift work, or a lack of available gyms nearby don’t need to get in the way of a good workout.

Home gym equipment is easy to use and can produce the same great results as you would get at the gym, without having to fork out for a gym membership. You don’t have to go to the gym to lose weight, you can reach your goals quickly and effectively by training at home, especially if you focus on high intensity interval training.

What is high intensity interval training?

High intensity interval training (HIIT) is when you work out in short bursts of very intense exercise, followed by a break. This style of training really suits people who have limited time and once you understand how it works, you can apply it to a wide range of different exercises, from strength to cardio for great results.

Why is HIIT so great for weight loss?

HIIT has been proven by numerous studies to be among the most effective type of exercise for weight loss and is suitable for people of any age and level of fitness.

The reason HIIT works so well is believed to be due to a number of different factors including the fact it increases your resting metabolic rate. This means that for 24 hours after training you will burn more calories even when you’re just sitting around doing nothing. It has also been shown to lead to significant spikes in growth hormone levels, which aid fat loss, and unlike continuous cardio, HIIT preserves and increases muscle development so that you lose fat, not muscle.

How can I do HIIT at home?

There are plenty of HIIT workouts out there, and even apps that can help you plan a training program to meet your goals. The basic principle is to go hard for 20 seconds and rest for 10, or for other intervals of different durations. You can do this using weights, bodyweight exercises, cardio or strength equipment.

As an example, if you have a rowing machine, try warming up for a few minutes then doing an intense burst of rowing for one minute before easing off for another minute. Keep going for as many sets as you can – after 20 minutes or so you should feel like you have run a marathon.

Make sure you are well hydrated before doing a HIIT session and always build up slowly so you don’t get injured. Take time to warm up and cool down afterwards and give yourself plenty of time to recover between workouts. A regular program of HIIT training mixed with other exercise will help you get rid of that excess weight in less time than you think.

Why Choose a Home Gym?

4/15/2015 5:00 PM

Home gyms are becoming increasingly popular among the fitness conscious and those who are looking to build more exercise and activity into their life. There are a number of reasons why many people decide to work out at home rather than go to a commercial gym and plenty of benefits of working out at home.

Here are six reasons why so many people choose a home gym over a commercial one:

  1. 1.Home gyms are family friendly. Working out at a commercial gym is often not an option for parents with young children. Many gyms won’t allow kids for safety reasons so investing in a home gym may be the only way to keep in shape while juggling family commitments.
  2. 2.Home gyms are great for people who are self-conscious. Not everyone wants to be on public display as they sweat through a workout. Many people who aren’t comfortable in a gym environment are not going to be motivated to keep going, whereas when they are at home in a relaxed environment they are more likely to keep it up long term.
  3. 3.Home gyms are ideal for those who are short on time. With a home gym not only can you work out on your own schedule, you don’t have to factor in travelling time, which can make a big difference.
  4. 4.Home gyms are low cost. After the initial outlay, home gym equipment will last a long time, whereas with premium gym membership, the costs over time can really add up.
  5. 5.Home gyms are great for people with personal trainers. If you decide to engage the services of a personal trainer, with your own gym, they can come to you rather than you having to travel to them. This is more convenient and saves a lot of time.
  6. 6.You never have to wait for equipment. Gyms can get busy during peak times and trying to get on popular machines can often mean waiting around. When you have your own equipment you don’t have to wait, it’s always there ready for you to use.

With so many great reasons to work out at home, it’s no wonder home gyms are so popular. Home gyms are a cost effective, time efficient and convenient way for people to get fit and enjoy an active lifestyle without having to go to a gym.

Setting up a corporate gym is exciting but unfortunately it can also be a headache at times. With OH&S considerations to think about as well as the general logistics of where everything is going to go it’s no wonder many people find the process challenging

No matter what the scale of your corporate gym, it’s always worth taking the time to find a great design and layout. Even the most well equipped corporate gym in the world isn’t going to serve its purpose if the layout isn’t well thought out, machines are too close together or the environment is unappealing.

At Calibre Fitness we can help you design and set up a corporate gym that is not only practical and safe, but that is also attractive and appealing to work out in.

What to think about when setting up a corporate gym

There are a few things you can do to make sure your corporate gym is set up for optimum use of space and safety. For ease of use it’s a good idea to group like-minded items together, so you have all your cardio equipment in one area, weights in another and an area for stretching or strength equipment elsewhere.

Make sure the flow between the different areas is smooth and there are no obstacles blocking the way. This is important both from convenience and from a safety perspective. Blocked passageways can lead to tripping hazards and accidents as well as difficulty for users getting between and around equipment.

Take particular care where you position your free weights. These weights are popular with a certain subgroup of exercisers who may not mix well with other types using the gym. It’s usually not a good idea to position the free weights next to the pin loaded weights as the two different types of people using the equipment may not be comfortable working out side by side.

Tools that can help with gym planning

A floor planner can be a huge help when you’re planning your corporate gym. Calibre Fitness has a specialised gym planning tool which is free to use and lets you see exactly how your gym equipment will fit into the space and move it around to find the best configuration. Once you have a finalised design you’re happy with, you can email, print or save it, along with an itemised list of the gym and fitness products included.

Corporate gyms are not just for urban-based businesses. Those in more remote locations can benefit just as much, or even more from setting up and maintaining a corporate gym for their employees. There is often a lack of availability of commercial gyms in more remote areas, which means that having access to high quality gym equipment at work is greatly appreciated by employees.

Maintenance can be challenging when you are in a remote area and many companies struggle to find someone to regularly service and maintain their equipment when they are based off the beaten track. This can be a deterrent to setting up a corporate gym – you don’t want to spend money on equipment, only to have it break down and sit unused, or worse, cause an accident or injury to an employee.

At Calibre Fitness we love helping companies in remote and regional areas set up and maintain their corporate gym. We’re one of the few gym equipment providers who are truly national and we work across all states and locations with organisations of all different shapes and sizes from big corporations to smaller community centres and not for profits.

  • Howard Springs, NT
  • Warialda, Country NSW
  • Albion Park, NSW
  • Alice Springs, NT
  • Gold Coast, QLD

  • Geraldton, WA
  • Yeppoon, QLD
  • Toowoomba, QLD
  • Seymour, Country VIC

As well as our national clients, we have also helped set up fully functional gyms for many international clients including countries Africa and Papua New Guinea to name a few.

We can help with every aspect of setting up and maintaining your corporate gym from finance options to helping with the fit out. Ongoing maintenance can be provided with a maintenance plan that also provides the option for an extended warranty for additional peace of mind (extra essential when help is a few hours or even days away!).

Our equipment is the highest quality in the business with the strongest motors available for our treadmills, and manufactured in factories that have the highest specifications in the world. Designed with safety, reliability and durability in mind, the equipment we provide can help you ensure that your gym is a worthwhile and long lasting investment for your business and employees, wherever they might be located.

Would you like to get better results from your workout in half the time? You may have heard of high intensity training, often known as high intensity interval training (HIIT). More than just another exercise fad, HIIT is a proven way to burn fat and improve your fitness by increasing the efficiency of your workouts rather than exercising for longer.

What is high intensity training?

HIIT is a training method where you work out in short sharp bursts of activity, alternated with rest periods. Working at an intense rate for short periods of time has been shown by numerous studies, including a recent study from Liverpool John Moores University and the University of Birmingham in the UK to be more efficient at fat burning, improving cardiovascular health and building and maintaining muscle than continuous workouts of the same length of time.

There are plenty of reasons to give HIIT a try! Here are four of our favourites:

  1. 1.Time. HIIT workouts usually only last for 30 minutes or so, making them easy for most people to fit in regularly and most importantly, to stick to over the long term.
  2. 2.Increased metabolism. This means that even once you’ve finished working out, your body is still burning calories more effectively and will continue to do so for around 24-48 hours.
  3. 3.Improved aerobic capacity. There have been a number of studies involving endurance athletes who have seen better results after a short program of high intensity intervals than after a longer program of continuous endurance exercise when it came to their aerobic capacity.
  4. 4.Preserves muscle. For people trying to lose weight, it can be frustrating to go on a diet only to lose muscle mass along with the fat. This can be a problem for those who stick to continuous cardio type exercise, but strength training using HIIT methods can help you preserve your muscles so you drop the weight from where you want it to go.

Although they are short, HIIT workouts make up for the reduction in time with their intensity. It’s important that you allow plenty of time to recover between sessions, especially if you are new to HIIT.

HIIT is well worth a try if you are looking to reach your fitness goals faster, or get great results in less time. You don’t have to be a world-class athlete to give it a go, HIIT is suited to all ages and levels of fitness.

Sample Workout:

1:1 Ratio Workout

3-Minutes intense workout followed by 3-minute low intensity workout. Repeat that 3-5 times.

Spring Interval Training Method

30 seconds of ‘sprint or near full-out effort’, followed by 4 to 4.5 minutes of recovery. Repeated up to times.

To get started, we recommend our Calibre Fitness R5 Recumbent Bike in the gym, which will allow you to warm up, sprint hard, and slow down. It is a simple HIIT workout, and you can repeat the workout for a total of 8 rounds (4 minutes total).
