I’ve been an active member of Spiece Fitness for about nine years and I feel there’s no other gym anywhere with this much equipment or space. There is a machine there which showed up about 4 years ago.  It’s bolted to the floor and I never knew what it was or how to use it.  The equipment is in the back in the corner near one of the heavy bags and speed bag.

Thursday I was talking to some of the guys in the weight room near the mystery machine when I noticed Michael Haines was using it!  Michael is a former body builder and knows his exercises. Michael explained that it is a Zane Leg Blaster.  It allows you to do squats in a different way than regular barball squats. Now I know Spiece Fitness has a Zane Squat machine and I will start using it in my leg routines along with barbell and machine squats.  He said it was invented by Mr. Olympia Frank Zane and it really hits the quadriceps.  He’s never seen one in any gym he’s been to except for Spiece and we’re lucky to have one.  Below is a picture of the Zane leg blaster.
