Hammer Strength equipment is the most popular commercial grade fitness equipment. Their selectorized and plate loaded strength machines are famous for their durability and effectiveness. Top athletes around the world utilize Hammer Strength exercise machines to reach their goals but you don’t have to be a professional to reap the benefits of these machines. Everyday gym goers can easily perform biomechanically correct exercises by using these machines. To clear up some possible confusion, Hammer Strength is a Life Fitness brand but their machines are vastly different from other Life Fitness strength lines such as their Signature line.
The Hammer Strength line has been training elite athletes for over 25 years. In 1989, a man by the name of Gary Jones was determined to improve strength training. All of the machines are built for rugged strength training and can take the abuse and intensity that gym goers and athletes can dish out.

Hammer Strength Guide:
Fun fact of the day, Hammer Strength equipment is the most sought after equipment in the fitness industry. We know by personal experience because these gym machines are sold before they even land in our warehouse. Hammer Strength equipment is mostly plate loaded so you can pack on much more weights, but they do also make great selectorized machines.
Consistent with their rugged and industrial look, they’re extremely durable and can take a pounding and withstand damage from any serious athlete. Our company has the luxury of doing installs for many of the large gyms so we’ve established great connections. These gyms then allow us the opportunity to buyback equipment and sometimes we have a chance to obtain some sought after Hammer Strength equipment.
There are some Hammer Strength machines that we do get more often than others so we’ll break them down below. Enjoy our Hammer Strength guide with pictures too:
Plate Loaded Hammer Strength
Hammer Strength Iso-Lateral High Row
The iso-lateral high row may sound like a ridiculously fancy name but its concept is pretty simple. This machine specializes in evenly developing the upper back muscles. It’s great for both beginners and experts because of its low starting resistance and durable frame. It even has an additional handle for a one handed workout if you want to look extremely cool. The seat is also adjustable for maximum comfort.
Hammer Strength Iso-Lateral Low Row
Once you’re done working out with upper back muscles, there’s the Hammer Strength iso-lateral low row to work your lower back. The machine was designed to create a natural and real push/pull workout. There’s also an adjustable seat and plate weight storage.
Hammer Strength Iso-Lateral Rowing
The iso-lateral rowing machine is great for developing all your back muscles evenly. Surprisingly, this machine is actually quite compact with a low profile so it is not too difficult to make room for it. It has multi-grip handles, an adjustable seat and a durable steel frame.
Hammer Strength Seated Calf Raise
The Hammer Strength seated calf raise is designed to specifically target your soleus muscles. The soleus muscle is a broad muscle in the lower calf that’s primarily used to flex the foot. The thigh restraint is adjustable to accommodate users of all sizes. Like all the other Hammer Strength machines, it has a durable steel frame.
Hammer Strength Iso-Lateral Decline Press
The specialty of the Hammer Strength iso-lateral decline press is to evenly develop the lower chest muscles. The machine is designed to be easily accessible with its adjustable seat and seat belt. It can even be adjusted to accommodate upright exercise positions.
Hammer Strength Iso-Lateral Chest/Back
The Hammer Strength iso-lateral chest/back is one of the few combination machines from the Hammer Strength line. The iso-lateral chest/back machine offers two workouts in one station which is ideal for gym owners or home users who want to maximize their space. Users can perform a chest press on one side of this machine and then rotate to a high row on the other side which allows them to work both the chest and back muscles.
Hammer Strength Seated Dip
If you need a Hammer Strength machine that targets your triceps, look no further than the seated dip. A great aspect of this machine is that you can perform the exercise either facing in or out. It also comes with a seatbelt for stabilization, adjustable knee pads, an adjustable seat and a weight plate storage rack.
Hammer Strength Pullover
The Hammer Strength pullover machine doesn’t have the most informative name so we’re here to tell you that it works out your back muscles. This particular model offers an angled seat and seatbelt for improved stability as well as a counterbalanced movement arm to reduce the initial starting weight. It also has a reduced shoulder extension for minimal joint stress. The seat is also adjustable.
Hammer Strength Iso-Lateral Shoulder Press
If you need to evenly develop your shoulders, the Hammer Strength iso-lateral shoulder press is the premiere machine for even development. It has a 40 degree back pad that helps to provide stability and discourages hyperextension during heavy lifts.
Hammer Strength Linear Leg Press
The leg press is one of the most commonly used gym machines but the Hammer Strength linear leg press is among the best. The machine is designed with linear bearings which create a smooth yet effective workout. It has easy accessibility,a polyethylene spray-coated foot platform for extra durability, long-lasting molded padding, safety lock rails and an adjustable back pad.
Hammer Strength Iso-Lateral Bench Press
One of Hammer Strength’s top selling strength machines, the iso-lateral bench press allows for equal chest strength development. It has an adjustable seat but also has an upright position for easy access.
Hammer Strength Seated Biceps
A great machine for working out the biceps, the Hammer Strength seated biceps utilizes the traditional preacher curl position and offers rotating handles to accommodate users with varying forearm length. It has improved resistance over free weights and an adjustable seat.
Selectorized Hammer Strength
Hammer Strength MTS Iso-Lateral Decline Press
The MTS iso-lateral decline press comes with two weight stacks to create resistance for each arm. The machine is designed at an optimal pressing angle for muscle stimulation. The two weight stacks are also independent of each other so you can adjust weight resistance for each arm.
Hammer Strength MTS Iso-Lateral Incline Press
Similar to the decline press, the Hammer Strength iso-lateral incline press has two separate weight stacks for resistance adjustment. This machine is designed to provide a natural arc of shoulder motion and movement that helps users evenly develop their muscles. Like many of the other machines in the line, it has an adjustable seat and durable steel frame.
