We make sure that there is a coach available should you ever need help with something, we also encourage our members to support each other in their training.

All of our members receive coaching and a training program. Our coaches are always available to help so you will never be left stranded in our gym. We use a combination of open gym and classes so that we can make sure everyone gets the attention they need. Programmes can be tweaked to suit the individual if needed as we know that one size doesn’t always fit all! We are a community driven gym and encourage members to support each other whenever possible, this not only makes training more enjoyable but leads to better results.
