Our circuit is made up of 12 pieces of equipment - consisting of 6 beds and 6 chairs.

The concept works on the basis that each machine in the circuit should be used for 3 minutes, making the total workout session approximately 36 minutes.

And at the end of the session will have had a workout that targets all of the main muscle groups.

Additional Information

ShapeMaster equipment facilitates both active and passive exercise. The concept was invented by a physiotherapist Bernard H Stauffer for his polio stricken wife back in the 1930s - it was heralded as a success.

The exercise system is low impact and works well for people of all ages, size and physical condition, as well as being beneficial for people with limitations. There is evidence to show that regular exercise can help improve a good number of chronic medical conditions, including:

  • Heart or stroke problems
  • High blood pressure
  • Muscular skeletal problems
  • Neurological disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory problems
  • Obesity
  • People with restricted mobility (with an aide if needed)
