Kieser's strength programs involve just two 30-minute HIT sessions weekly. Exercises continue until local fatigue, typically lasting 90 to 120 seconds. If you exceed 120 seconds, weight increases by 5% next session; if less than 90 seconds, weight decreases by 5%. In the 90-120 second range, the training weight remains constant. With a focus on achieving localised fatigue, only one set is performed at Kieser.
Kieser place great value in ensuring that you complete your strength training program with proper technique, because this is the only way to ensure you achieve your goals. You will be personally supervised in 1:1 sessions by our Exercise Scientists or Exercise Physiologists during your first six training sessions. Your instructor will show you how to adjust the machines and perform the exercises correctly so that you are confident to commence independent strength and rehabilitation training.
To ensure you see training results, you will then be supervised every 20 training sessions to adapt the weights and machines and to ensure that you are training effectively at the right intensity. Of course, our Exercise Scientists are always there for you to speak to in the meantime.
Kieser clients begin their journey with an initial consultation with one of our Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologists, who will prepare a comprehensive treatment plan to reduce any aches and pains and start the process of reconditioning. If there are any physical complaints, these will be accounted for in your individual training plan, allowing you to train safely and precisely in accordance with your needs.
Kieser's Lumbar Extension Machine (LE) back strength test offers objective analysis. A Physiotherapist measures spinal erector strength and spine mobility, comparing results to reference data. This test forms the basis for your treatment plan and effective back training. Strength training on our LE machine stands out due to muscle isolation using restraints, precise resistance, safe movement guidance, and joint protection under a Physiotherapist's supervision.

At Kieser we believe our clients should be able to train in a clean, bright, uncluttered space, free of any distractions so the focus can be solely upon training. This is why all of our centres have no music, no mirrors and no distractions. We believe this creates a non-intimidating environment that welcomes clients from all levels of ability.
Strength training at Kieser is performed on highly specialised machines that offer a number of advantages over exercises that are dependent on the body’s own mass or over free weight training – namely that the muscles are perfectly isolated during the exercise with cushions and supports. The machines are easy to use and are fully adjustable so they can be used by both beginners and professional athletes. The guided movements enable training that is safe and does not unnecessarily overburden the joints. Click here to learn more about our strength training equipment.
