Unfortunately, apartment fitness centers tend to have lower quality equipment and less selection. Usually you can put together good routines though with whatever you have to work with, dumbbells and other implements, bodyweight exercises, and some creativity.
Thats a good point. Usually apartments have one "Do it all" machine in the middle of a 15x15 room . pretty underwhelming, particularly if they dont fit your body too well
Another good reason to implement pushups and pullups. Two of the best exercises to make sure you're getting a well rounded workout
