Tamminga said her equipment is state-of-the-art.
"The equipment that we have is the number one manufactured brand out there today, and we want to make sure it's user friendly for all kinds of people - skinny people, big people, and people with special needs who may have had a knee replacement, or arthritis."
Tamminga said that an important consideration when she was researching what equipment to purchase was that the seats on the machines should be comfortable.
"I personally got on every singe piece of equipment that we have and tested it," she said. "And with my husband being an engineer in the manufacturing industry, that helped in shopping for equipment."
Every member that joins the club will receive a free orientation and consultation on how to use the equipment. They will get a clipboard and a program card so that they will have their progress on file each time they visit the club.
"We will do this several times until they feel comfortable on the equipment," Tamminga said.
In the cardio area, the machines include treadmills, stair climbers, cross trainers, and bikes.
"We also have a new functional line that is used for therapy and rehabilitation," she said. "It's kind of a cable, pulley-adjustment system where you can do four or five different exercises on one machine."
The equipment is set up to work from upper body muscle groups to lower body groups, Tamminga said. She added that the equipment is also color-coded. The upholstery on the upper body machines is blue, and that on the lower body machines is red.
"There's a little story behind that," she said, laughing. "I went to the University of Louisville, and I was a cheerleader there, and my husband's a UK fan, so that's why it's red and blue."
