Women’s Weight Training Myth, Busted

Today we are talking about Women’s Weight Training. Each month, we update our waiting area with the newest edition of Women’s Health and each copy is the same – littered with half naked (photo-shopped) women endorsing quick fixes they’ve never tried. Like many magazines geared towards a female readership, it is common to find adverts promising instant weight loss in only a few simple steps....

Beach Body Ready for £1

The sun is shining and I’m feeling excited about summer 2016: beach trips… BBQs… parties. Unfortunately, these are all tainted by the fact I forgot to whip my beach body into shape in time for the good weather (can you relate?). Perhaps you are still carrying post-Christmas weight or never quite stuck to your New Year’s resolution. If (like me) you’re feeling more ‘beached whale’ than...

Exercise for your Mind

It’s Mental Awareness Week, so we have decided to talk about the benefits of exercise for your mind. I often hear our trainers: ‘don’t stop!’…‘one more rep’…‘I know you can do it!’ You see, they don’t say it without the up-most confidence that you really can keep going. More often than not, our minds give up well before our bodies do. Causing us to fail at...

Why we love Burpees (no, really)

Ever done burpees? Or 50? The burpee has to be the most moaned about exercise out there. It’s hard. Really hard. That’s because, in effect, it is the combination of at least 4 different exercises. So, why do we make you do them?  Burpees are amazing (no, really they are) and unlike some exercises, they aren’t restricted to a particular style of class. You can...

150% Stronger in 8 Weeks

They say good things come to those who wait. We say, good things come to those who weight train. Getting lean and toned is all about dedication, hard work and the right support. Without all three, you are likely to plateau or fail. It doesn’t matter who you’re training with if you aren’t 100% dedicated to your programme. Likewise, it doesn’t matter how much you...

We are first in the queue when it comes to praising the benefits of keeping fit. We are also really good at telling you how amazing Train Together gym is. But hearing it just from us probably isn’t very useful and we actually agree with you. Any gym can tell you how great they are, but only some can actually show you. This week we...
