The Hub is brand new and situated in the Health & Fitness area at the Mariner Centre. It can offer a solution to many exercise barriers reported by those suffering from long-term health issues, from obesity or who are undergoing post-operative rehabilitation. The layout of the 12 machines facilitates positive peer support and friendship. Adjustable footplates and support straps enable access for people with movement restriction.
If you have:
- a Neurological condition
- Cardio-respiratory disease
- Back pain
Shapemaster is a non-threatening exercise option suitable for people who are obese or experience difficulties related to body image.
"Unlike conventional exercise equipment, Shapemaster does not rely exclusively on muscle power but by an electronic power system enabling users to work passively or actively, depending on their ability. As the user does not have to provide the motive force, they do not have to overcome inertia in order to use the equipment, so it is a perfect choice for anyone coming back to exercise after long periods of rest or inactivity, including older adults or those with limited mobility." - Shapemaster
