A RESULTS-DRIVEN GYM: TRAINING SELF-MOTIVATED INDIVIDUALS TO ACHIEVE CLEAR AND TARGETED GOALS
People buy gym memberships because they want to achieve results, yet they are often sold the wrong solution. Training without a structured plan or relying on high-speed HIIT classes leads to a lack of tangible progress and increasing injury rates.
Making long-term change to your body is hard, and the industry of physical training is cluttered with methods and fashions that take away from the process of training - using the right tools for a specific outcome.
Our mission is to give self-motivated individuals the tools and environment to close the gap between where they are and where they need to be.
Riverside Gym functions differently to most facilities.
Our Real Strength athletic programme is based on physical assessment, clear goal setting and a high-level, individualised programme which is adapted weekly for every client by a university-standard strength and conditioning staff.
With Real Strength, you train to be physically strong, relentlessly fit, and structurally sound.
SPACE & ACCESS
At Riverside Gym I've been able to commit to and achieve goals I previously thought were impossible and the sense of community is one of the reasons I can't imagine training anywhere else.
Since I started training with James at Riverside Gym, my overall strength and fitness has improved dramatically. James listens and establishes a plan to suit my goals. His knowledge and dedication to developing his clients is first-class.
Real Strength has helped me get stronger and fitter in a way that seemed impossible while I was attending commercial gyms. The programme focuses on both physical and mental skills to ensure results are sustainable.
I've spent the last decade learning everything I can about training from university study, professional sport and in the trenches experience.
My motivation for building this programme stems from a desire to help people achieve something difficult and meaningful.
My experience in this gym dates back to walking through the doors as a teenager when Riverside Gym was a unique, no frills facility.
Through blasting rock music and clanging cast iron plates, I learned lessons which changed the course of my life. Alongside the value of hard work and commitment, I learned that what we achieve in the gym can fuel our potential outside of it.
That concept drives me to make Real Strength a platform for goal achievement and an anchor in people's lives.
If you want to break-through in your training, are willing to learn and become immersed in the process, you are in the right place.
