Exclusive access to Group Sessions:

Strong Sessions:

Strong SessionIncrease your strength by learning to lift heavier weights in a controlled environment. Lifting weights will strengthen your body, increase your muscle tone and speed up your fat loss, as our muscles continue burning calories long after a workout is completed. Our Strong Sessions are designed to help you learn how to lift weights correctly. As you progress through the program you'll begin learning how to lift heavier weights at lower repetitions and increase your overall weight lifting capabilities.


Lean Sessions:

TBC-Lean.pngHIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) is the fastest, most efficient way to get lean. In Lean Sessions, you'll perform high-intensity exercises followed by a short period of rest. Maximise your fat loss in our Lean sessions! HIIT is great at strengthening your cardiovascular system, increasing your 'mental toughness' and challenging your fast-twitch muscle fibres — the fibres that are great for strength, power, sculpting and toning.


Challenge Sessions:

Throughout the program we will be running two Challenge Sessions for all participants of The Biggest Challenge; Strong Challenge and Lean Challenge. The Challenges will test your strength, fitness, resilience and mental toughness whilst giving you the opportunity to meet new people with similar goals.
