Is there a minimum level of fitness needed to join?
No. The programme is designed in such a way that you can work at your own level and progress as your strength and fitness improves. We've worked with guys who struggled to walk a few lengths of the pitch when they started and are now running 1/2 marathons.
Is there a maximum age limit?
No. We have no upper age limit. Most of our guys are in their 30's, 40's and 50's with a few in their 60's. We generally don't accept guys younger than 30 but will view each application on it's merits.
If I have an injury/illness can I join?
It depends on many factors such as when the original injury/illness was, what happened and how you recovered (or not). We'll discuss it with you when you apply and if necessary contact your doctor or physio therapist (with your permission) for a professional opinion.
Can I change and shower after the sessions?
Yes. There are shower and change facilities before and after all sessions at all our locations so you can come straight from or go straight to, work.
I hate 'diets' is this a diet club?
No. We're not a slimming club. We are a results based programme that uses training and nutrition as our tools to get you fitter, stronger, leaner and happier. Our nutrition programme is designed for busy guys wanting to get back in shape. Simple nutrition based on the latest research.
What do the training sessions entail?
Every training session is different to help you stay motivated and engaged, however most sessions follow a similar proven format. We start by increasing your core body temperate before working on your mobility, improving those stiff achy areas and getting you ready for the session. We then move onto the strength portion of the session where we focus on getting you as strong and resilient as possible. Next up is the conditioning phase where the emphasis is working hard and then taking short rest breaks, to increase your heart rate and metabolism over the next 24hrs maximising calorie and fat burn. We then finish with a good stretch. We ensure there is a good mix of individual, pairs and team work to cater for all preferences as well as giving you targets at every single session.
How many guys are at each session?
This varies based on the location and the time of year but in general there is an average of 20-25 guys at each training session.
I have a hectic schedule can I swap between AM & PM programmes if needed?
Yes. You can swap between our AM & PM programmes to suit your schedule. You can even use one of our other locations as part of your memberships if you wish.
I hate the gym, is this more fun?
Yes. We know the gym can be dull and monotonous so we do everything possible to make your experience an enjoyable one. From interactive and competitive training sessions, to planed and organised events, to regular socials and much more.
Is this a Rugby programme?
No. We simply base ourselves at Rugby clubs as they afford us excellent year-round training and changing facilities as well as storage for the vast amount of kit and equipment we use. No previous rugby (or any other sports) experience is necessary
