Brand new leg presses at Monash Sport Clayton

As part of our commitment to providing quality training equipment, our Clayton campus Fitness Centre has recently upgraded their plate loaded leg press machines.

We now have two Hammer Strength plate loaded linear Leg Press machines.

Hammer Strength is the choice of professional athletes when they train at the highest levels, and it’s relied upon by top sporting clubs and professional training facilities around the world.

Hammer Strength equipment isn’t reserved just for elite athletes, as everyday gym goers will also benefit from the excellent bio-mechanical design in the same way the pros do.

Advantages of the Hammer Strength machines include:
- More robust / durable design.
- Larger foot pad for greater technique variations
- Greater weight capacity meaning more weight can be loaded onto machine
- Safety stop meaning greater piece of mind for the user
- Easy to adjust hinge seat adjustment makes for greater stability and safety

Please speak to one of our friendly Health and Fitness Instructors when you’re at Clayton next if you’d like to be shown how to get the most out of the new machines!

Monash College Games Recap

Week 4 of this Semester saw over 900 students attend Monash Sport's Clayton facilities for the inaugural Monash College Games.

Held over the course of one evening, a series of short competitions were held for all residential and non-residential colleges. A total of ten sports were on offer for colleges to register in, with each sport including a round robin competition with finals.

The focus of the Monash College Games was for students to have fun with their peers, try new sports, and to don their College or Hall's colours in support of their friends.

The winning colleges for each of these sports were awarded a trophy which will be engraved with their college's name, and allowed to be kept by the winning colleges until next year's Monash College Games. Students also enjoyed the Sumo Salad and pizza offerings in-between matches.

The winning colleges for each sport are listed below:

Volleyball - Howitt Hall
Dodgeball Open - Ursa
Dodgeball Women - Deakin Hall
Women's Basketball - Clayton NRC
Open Basketball - Farrer Hall
Mixed Basketball - Deakin Hall
Open Bubble Soccer - Howitt Hall
Women's Bubble Soccer - Deakin Hall
Carpet Bowls - Holman Hall
Indoor Frisbee - Ursa
