What’s what at Momentum Training – How to find your class/s

Posted 27th January 2020 by Josh Schouten

Welcome to Momentum Training,

As some of you are new with us we thought we would skip the awkward part and introduce ourselves first. As we’re not your typical leisure facility we thought it might be best if we let you know what is the main difference between our classes and what might suit you and your fitness thirst.

Metcon: Low load, low skill, high capacity. General fitness, with DBs, KBs, dead-balls, ropes and mono-structural. A different workout every class. Suitable for beginners. Large group teams.

StrongCon: Medium load, medium skill, medium to high capacity. Body composition, with barbells, DBs, KBs, and mono-structural. A three-month program cycle. Working in teams of 2 to 3 people.

Barbell Club*: Medium to high load, medium skill, low capacity. Strength and hypertrophy, with barbells, DBs, cables and (appropriate useful) machines. No aerobic (‘cardio’) element. A six-month program cycle. Lots of chat. Great place to find a BFF gym buddy.

Weightlifting (Olympic lifts)*: Medium to high load, high skill, low capacity. Snatch, clean and jerk, and squat. Get serious (with smiles) to progress in these lifts. Monthly program cycle. Feel part of a tight-knit team.

Heavy Metal Club*: High load, high skill, high capacity. Weightlifting, powerlifting, and conditioning for the advanced member. Program cycle determined by coach and class agreement on goals. Love of metal music essential.

Gymnastics: High strength, high skill, low to high capacity. Bodyweight movements: muscle-ups, pull-ups, handstand push-ups, handstand walks, toes-to-bar. Monthly program cycle. Strength focus for beginners. Capacity for advanced. The same friendly faces week after week.

CrossFit*: All of the above put together into one. Six-month program split into three-weekly blocks. Beginner to advanced – everyone welcome. Community is key.

Mobility: Improve your performance through suppleness and range of movement.

Foundations: Learn correct technique for the classes of your choice. Compulsory for CrossFit, Weightlifting and Heavy Metal Club. Optional for everything else. Shoot us an email:  or read more here.

Personal Training: Build your confidence to start classes or progress from these to achieve an elusive goal. Email us here.

Physio and Sport massage: Tight? Achy? Injured? This is the place to go. 


You’ll not that the classes marked with the * will require completion of the foundations prior to booking these. If you have any questions about what might be the best way forward, please feel free to grab a coach or contact Geoff or Josh.

We look forward to seeing you in the classes soon!
