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 make people stronger. Everyone on our membership receives their own custom programme every week, which is monitored and managed between them and their coach. This eliminates guesswork, brings clarity and provides insight into how training should be progressed, lifting with proper technique and planning based on who you are and where you are now.
Riverside Gym functions differently to most facilities.
Our Real Strength programme is based on physical assessment, clear goal setting and a high-level, individualised programme which is adapted weekly by a senior strength and conditioning staff.
With Real Strength, you train to be physically strong, relentlessly fit, and structurally sound.
SPACE & ACCESS
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.
