the FreeMotion equipment. Mel's correct, there is a whole line of different machines. Here's what I like about FreeMotion, it is a good hybrid between weight machines and freeweights. FreeMotion equipment encourages the user to stablize their core while executing the movement and encourages a natural range of motion. It is also one size fits all. Generally, you don't have to make a lot of adjustments before you use the equipment and find that it's still just not quite right.
Many of the FreeMotion machines also encourage the user to use a standing position which is much better than "sitting" on or in a machine. This is beneficial because generally we get plenty of practice sitting through the majority of our day.
It's important to stand to stretch out those hip flexors.
FreeMotion was what I used to begin my strength training five years ago. I found that when I was ready to beginning lifting free weights I had a good foundation in core strength and neuromuscular "rehearsal" for knowing how to execute the movement well.
Good luck and enjoy your upcoming workouts!
