Level 1 is outfitted with Technogym’s state-of-the-art Kinesis wall, which is composed of four panels of machines that create a whole-body fitness experience. Level 1 is the only gym in Philadelphia offering Kinesis training, which combines traditional exercises with functional movements, such as bending or lifting, to develop balance, flexibility, and core strength. Participants of any fitness level can benefit from Kinesis training, as it incorporates cardiovascular, strength, and flexibility training in one session.
Beneath its sleek surface, the Kinesis wall consists of a closed chain pulley system that users interact with through a combination of grips, cables, and weight stacks. The resulting resistance training demands engagement from the lower body, core, and upper body. By training multiple fitness components at once, Kinesis training burns up to 30% more calories than normal resistance training.
