This program is led by our team of strength and conditioning experts who have 20 years’ experience between them on Olympic weight lifting, building strength, developing overall performance and reducing the risks of injuries. The programs are created to educate you on specific barbell exercises, understanding the movement within a particular muscle group and understanding internal muscle cues to re-integrate a muscle group into a movement pattern. You will receive your own plan which you carry out in your own time with a chance to check in with your coach to correct your technique.

Kettlebell Strength

Kettlebell workouts will help you to build muscle and improve your strength, core stability, balance, flexibility, and coordination. It’s a versatile program where you will perform a range of exercises which target single or multiple groups at the same time. Learn the basics of front squats, swings, cleans and snatches to build strength and be the fittest you have ever been.

HIIT

Instructed by our high intensity coach, if you are looking for a workout and are short on time, our high intensity class could be the answer for you. This class is great fun and easy to modify so that you can work at your own pace and level of ability. It is super intense but in just half an hour, give this a try to see some great results.

The class is only a half an hour long so you can fit it in before work. The class will provide you with a complete break-down of exercises you complete, an intense workout to timed music and a stretch off at the end. The use of interval style training will help build your fitness levels up fast! The great thing about this type of training is you can also work at your own level by using modifications of the tougher exercises to suit your own abilities.
