One of the areas my gym is lacking is in the shoulder muscle category. When I first joined Catalyst Fitness, there was a nautilus side lateral raise machine, an overheard press, and a great seated military press (shoulder Press) free weight bench stand. Sadly, they are all gone now and I wish I would have done more to keep them here or get them back.
A combination Bench/Incline/shoulder Life Fitness machine was added and I use it occasionally. It’s an ok machine, but not my favorite. I really miss the Military press stand because I could easily do Arnold presses with dumbbells on it And it was good for military presses with a barbell as well.
June 2022. The nautilus shoulder press I liked is gone. The nautilus military press was a nice machine that positioned your hands parallel to your legs which is different that most machines. The other shoulder machine was a nautilus side lateral machine and we have nothing like it now.
A month or two ago the seated Military press stand was replaced with a new Smith machine which I hardly use. I had a warning that the military press stand was probably leaving but I didn’t ask the owner if was going to happen. Maybe I could have fought for it or found a place for it. We’ll never know now.
