Free Weights

Bridport Leisure Centre offers a designated free weight area within the main Fitness Suite and another in the SkillX Studio. They are well equipped with various types of free weights, such as dumbbells, barbells, and weight plates.

Providing you with the space and equipment you need to perform strength training exercises that utilize resistance from gravity, rather than machines or cables.

Our free weight stations allow for a wide range of exercises targeting different muscle groups and providing opportunities for functional strength development.

Using free weights offers a multitude of benefits.

They promote functional strength by engaging stabilizer muscles and enabling a full range of motion. Free weights improve muscle balance, activate the core, and enhance overall athleticism. Their versatility allows for various exercises targeting different muscle groups, promoting muscle activation and growth. Additionally, free weights challenge balance and coordination, leading to improved proprioception. With efficient compound movements, they offer time-effective workouts suitable for individuals of all fitness levels.
