Also, our fitness coaches will give you useful information about target heart rate training zones.

Equipment Orientations

If you'd like to learn how to safely use various pieces of fitness equipment, just ask for one of our trained fitness coaches at the Hollis Center front desk. They'll demonstrate how to use weight machines, free weights, cardio equipment and other fitness tools. They'll also help you learn how to use a workout log to track exercise progress, which makes for more effective workout sessions. No appointment is necessary!
