Flat and Adjustable Benches
Take your weight routine to the next level with a flat or adjustable weight bench from World Fitness Australia. Whether you’re looking to target your upper or lower body, our flat and adjustable benches are perfect for any free weight exercise. Try the classics like bench press, flyes or squats, or create your own exercise to complement your strength training program. No matter what your current fitness level may be, incorporating a weight bench into your training regime is guaranteed to take it to the next level and help you reach your goals faster.
Flat benches are compact, tough and super versatile. Their simple yet sturdy design makes them perfect for performing a wide range of both compound and isolation exercises, like bench press or Bulgarian split squats. While flat benches can be used for some seated exercises, they offer no back support, so if you’re working with more challenging weights, they may not be for you.
If you’re looking for a weight bench that gives you more variety, an adjustable bench is a great option. These benches, also known as FID benches (or flat, incline, decline benches), allow you to adjust your bench into the optimal position for your height, limb length and exercise you’re performing. These are great because not only do they help to keep your body in the safest, most secure position, but they also drastically increase the number of exercises you can do.
Either way, both flat and adjustable benches are compact and durable, making them the perfect addition to any home or commercial gym space. Here at World Fitness, we stock a wide range of adjustable and flat benches from industry-leading brands like Next Fitness, Marcy, Bodycraft, Body Iron and Pivot. All of our weight benches are manufactured to be reliable and long-lasting, so you have everything you need to complete some unreal strength sessions!
Whether you are looking for something simple or with all the extras, World Fitness has something for your exercise regime.
