  • DImprove bone strength
  • Control your weight
  • Manage chronic aches and pains
  • Improve mental wellbeing

Strength Training (Free Weights)

Resistant training with machine weights offers a great starting point for beginners to have muscle-building workouts safely and effectively. Machine weights guide you through a specific set of movements and help to maintain correct form. You will be able to maintain proper body alignment, allowing you to work out without risking sprains. In addition to that, machine weights reduce stress on your joints while isolating and targeting a particular muscle or group of muscles.

Gulf Coast Fitness offers a large variety of Cybex weight machines to ensure you get a complete full body workout. We also have two cable crossover machines that let you work from multiple angles and directions for endless variety. It's like a one-stop shop to work your muscles.

Circuit Training

Target different muscle groups and challenge yourself with our circuit training routines. Circuit training allows you to get the maximum results in the minimum of time, combine the benefits of cardio and strength training, and try all the latest fitness tools the gym has to offer. Our 30,000 sq. ft. premises ensure that there is more than enough room for it all.

TRX Suspension Training

If you're looking for a fast and effective way to get a total-body workout, then TRX (Total Body Resistance Exercise) is something you should try. The main benefit of TRX is that it helps you to build a solid core. All the movements done on a TRX trainer need you to stabilize your body with abs and lower back, so that you can use your body weight as resistance. This helps you to really strengthen your core and increase your overall fitness.

Functional Training

Gulf Coast Fitness Fort Myers has a huge functional training room that includes kettlebells and sled training with turf floor. If you're looking to add free weights to your workouts, Gulf Coast Fitness has you covered, even if you're a complete beginner. Our free weights range from 5lbs to 140lbs. We also offer a large variety of benches, squat racks and Hammer Strength plated machines.

With free weights, you get a full range of motion. They require a level of extra muscle coordination that helps to replicate real-life movement. Free weight strength training exercises train more muscles by using stabilizing muscles to perform the exercise, making each workout more efficient for maximum results.
