I recently moved to a new apartment with a mini-gym for residents to use. Having not been very active about working out besides a few stints in the past, I decided to check it out. However, since I've never actually had a trainer or been to a gym for any length of time, I had no idea how to use most of the machines there. I checked the wall charts but they were mainly nutrition guides (I kid you not) without any form of instructions.
Knowing how dangerous it is to use a machine when you don't know how to, I went online to search for pictures/videos/information about the machines I saw, but it proved to be harder than I thought. I could find tons of info on individual machines and techniques, but that didn't solve the problem of what machine was what - I knew what they looked like, but not their names!
So I decided to ask here if anyone knew of a site with just the names and pictures of simple workout machines. I've managed to identify a few (abdominal bench, pec deck) but some still elude me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
