How to use different gym equipment: Strength

We’ve asked our expert Personal Trainers to demonstrate some of the most popular equipment in a David Lloyd Clubs gym correctly and effectively. This time, we’re focusing on strength.

Discover how to use three different pieces of equipment that build strength and provide a full-body workout. You’ll learn the unique benefits of each piece of kit and learn how to use it correctly, to ensure you avoid injuries and achieve maximum results.

Let’s get started!


The kettlebell is one of the most versatile pieces of kit in the gym. It can be used to perform a number of diverse exercises at different levels. Watch Alpha, a Personal Trainer at Harbour Club Kensington, illustrate the goblet squat. 

The TRX row

The TRX is an excellent low-impact piece of equipment that can be used in multiple ways to target different muscle groups, build strength and improve cardio fitness. Here, Geoff, part of the team at David Lloyd Bolton, shows us how to do the low row.

The barbell deadlift

The squat rack is one of the most popular areas in the gym – and for good reason! Here, you can perform a number of different barbell lifts that will build strength in multiple muscle groups. Watch Holly from David Lloyd Chorley illustrate how to set up the barbell safely and perform one of the most effective strengthening exercises out there: the barbell deadlift.
