This gym has an intense and motivational energy (most of the gym instructors push you to your limit and the dj's are great for enhancing the ambience) that means you work out harder. I've been to quite a few gyms and feel like the instructors here focus more on your technique and ensure you work harder, they also talk to you and interact with the class more. The front desk staff are really nice too. Great music and a excellent selection of classes (from quirky to hard core). I recommend the Kick boxing class on Saturday, the Wednesday spin class at 6.45pm and the Monday circuit class at 7.30pm.
Paragon gym, deceptive in the sense that it's not only a gym but so much more. I was at this gym for just under a year on/off, leaving due to personal reasons. The teaching is second to none, the community and atmosphere ensure your learning is effortless. The coaches are diverse and orientated in such a way that they'll identify any issues you have before you do.
For kickboxing, Stuart Lawson's not only a master but an inspiring instructor who gives himself to his students without question, a sensei who is honest, loyal and truely gifted.
Also, John Lawson (founder), Hazel Gale, Lisa Kent, Mark Walker, Lorraine Strudwick and Rob Waran are equally equipped to give you the best tuition and bring the best out of you, whether it be in a class or on a one to one basis.
For boxing, Keith Morris can take you from novice to anywhere your capability dictates. He's generous with his time and knowledge as well as his superb technical skills. If you've done any boxing before, this is the coach you wish you'd had, he encapsulates the sweet science.
If you spend enough time at the gym, the people will look after you, you won't realise this place is a gem until you leave.
I've never been to a place like this. Everyone is so nice and they go out of their way for you. JOE C you rock!!!
I'd never done boxing before and was scared but this is really something everyone can do.
My 16 year old daughter is coming with me now. We have a blast.
I highley recommend this gym.
We wanted something different for our young mums group we certainly recieved it from the confidence academy very fast service tailered to our needs and at a price to fit our budget.
On the day we had an amazing turnout for our group usually we get around the twenty mark we had a personal best of thirty six young mums so that was another big plus for our group.
First stuart the founder gave a short talk about different perceptions of Martialarts and asked us ours quiet enlightening and funny. Then he spoke about knife crime in our area very intersting information and some sad stories that really brought it home for all of us a show of hands with our group alone on being affected by knife crime was scary.then it was time for the physical side of things conflict avoidence body language and how to use it the fence,mind set,proactive antibullying,personal development,character education finished with a game and a short talk on common sense not being so common all of our group myself included were riveted from start to finish a genuine pleasure to host we have booked a goal setting goal getting workshop with the confidence academy and more to follow no hesitation in recomending this company to any individual or group.
I would NEVER go back. I paid a year in advance and even though my contract says I can cancel with a HUGE fee, I have been unable to do so. I even spoke to the HEAD of NATIONAL sales because they have no customer relations department, and this title handles all cancellations, and I was still given the run around. We are talking about over 1K with personal training sessions and months still to come that they owe me for. TERRIBLE management has changed 3 TIMES IN 3 MONTHS. A few trainers quit and basically only one works in the morning. Also classes have been deleted leaving only 3 classes a week at 8;30 am and 2 at . 6:30 am. Everyone besides the GM is pretty cool but they all seem to hate their jobs now and SO MANY people that are members are trying to cancel. STAY AWAY AND GO ANYWHERE ELSE BUT HERE! friendly advice :)
Lovely lady instructor at Kick boxing in Fitness First Pinner, made me comfortable, encouraging and really good overall. I was the only female in class, and i would go back. Gave me a really good overall workout.
I joined their outdoor fitness boot camp sessions in January in Clapham. It's a great pair of brothers who really know how to make exercise fun. It's brilliant value - you can spend far more going to the gym for less enjoyment and fewer results - I have! Definitely recommend it - it's not just about the exercise, it's about the great group of people who exercise with us also and the laughs we have along the way! P.S. Love the kettlebells and kick-boxing/boxing - and their intensive two-week bootcamps with diet plan are brilliant value for money.
The Walker Brothers have put together a great workout in the park, incorporating equipment that you won't find in other outdoor classes (kettle bells, TRX, tyres), and the price is right! Sizes are small enough to feel like a personal training session, and the group dynamics are really comfortable and fun. Unlike other outdoor groups I've tried, classes run year round, which means I don't have to scramble to find something else to do after a few weeks' time. I've definitely toned up and feel stronger now that I'm working out with Tim and Steve, and I can't imagine moving on to the other workout groups in the park...
