Classes

Functional Fitness

Functional Fitness

Our Functional fitness classes make up the bulk of the training at The Stronghold.

The 60-minute sessions start with a group warm up and mobility work before moving onto a strength or skill element. You will be coached through anything from weightlifting or gymnastics to rowing or core work. We will then finish off with a workout with a focus on aerobic conditioning and fitness.

Stronghold Fundamentals

Stronghold Fundamentals

This 60 minute class is based around fundamental movements and mastering the basics of Functional fitness. A strength movement will dominate the bulk of the class, with a circuit finisher to work on aerobic fitness.

Ideal for those who are new to Functional Fitness or returning from injury or time away from training. 

Conditioning

Conditioning

A full hour dedicated to all things fitness and conditioning.

Programmed for in efficiency in all energy systems. Anaerobic sprinting, lactate threshold, long aerobic pieces all feature, with additional focus on egometer technique and pacing.

Barbell Club

Barbell Club

Our Olympic weightlifting club will develop your technique, skill and strength within the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk. The whole session is spent lifting weights, no need to worry about any burpees or running!

Weekend Bootcamp

Weekend Bootcamp

These sessions are all about working hard and having fun. They will consist of mostly partner and team workouts focusing on keeping the intensity up, the heart pumping and the lungs burning.

These will tend to have fewer ‘high skilled’ elements, making it easier to go at a higher pace. Expect anything from tyre flipping to sled dragging!

Stronghold Gymnastics

Stronghold Gymnastics

This class focuses on progressing from the basic fundamental gymnastics in our Functional Fitness classes. We will look at movements such as muscle ups, handstands and skills for those looking to compete.

Masters Class

Masters Class

Our Masters class is a lower impact focusing on lifelong activity, movement and strength. While it is for all ages, it is predominantly aimed at those over 60. During these classes we look to enhance quality of life by increasing strength and range of motion which then transfers to life at home.

Mobility

Mobility

Sunday… The end of the week and a chance to recover. Our 30-45 minute mobility sessions will help to loosen off any tight areas and ensure that your body is ready for another week of training.
