Sad times

Posted 20th March 2020 by Jenna Fisher

Dear Momentum Training members,


Thank you for your great attitude and all the positive feedback during this difficult time. As you may be aware we are now having to close our doors following government instructions – we apologise for the short notice. As a small business, we would love for you to retain your memberships through this period if you can. When we are up and running again we will credit you extra sessions and time for your generosity and support in keeping us afloat. A couple of points in the meantime:


Borrowing equipment

Many of you have asked about borrowing a piece of equipment to take home and we would like to offer you the chance to exercise at home effectively.

To ensure a fair spread between our community these guidelines have been put in place:

– To borrow equipment your monthly rolling membership must be kept in place for the duration of the hire.

– One set of equipment per person i.e. a pair of 15kg DBs, OR one KB, OR one barbell and one set of plates – a bar and two 15kg plates for example. Alternatively, plenty can be done with one single plate and no bar – squats, lunges, ground to overhead, glute bridge etc.

– A deposit must be paid before taking the equipment. This will be refunded when it is returned in an acceptable condition. The deposit amount will depend on what equipment you take. By way of example, it will be c£100 for a KB OR a set of DBs. The deposit will be paid via TeamUp and returned to you in full upon return of the equipment in the same condition we loaned it to you.

– Equipment can be picked up from Momentum tomorrow, Saturday 21st March 9 am-10 am. It should not be used outside in the rain or in wet conditions.

– We will request the return of all equipment as soon as we have a date to re-open our doors.

-Please note that Eleiko bars and mono structural equipment (rower/bike/ski) are not for hire.


Alternative workouts

We are currently working with our coaches to keep them (and you) busy during this time and we are currently investigating two options. The first is online workouts – watch our social medial presence for further info. The other is park workouts – again, once we have more clarity on what we are and aren’t able to offer under the government restrictions, we will update you. We will do everything we can to keep you fit and healthy and moving during this time.



Please send any questions to


For now,

Peace & Love and stay well

StrongCon – New Workouts

Posted 17th March 2020 by Jenna Fisher

Hello all

I have created new StrongCon workouts to see us through this period of the Coronavirus.

StrongCon workouts – 2020, Phase 2

These workouts are designed so that you a) no longer share equipment in the way that you have been previously, and b) have time to clean any equipment that will be shared with disinfectant before you do so.

2020 – Part IV

Moving into the 4th phase of training for 2020 we are going to use Mondays and Fridays to work towards some heavyish loads so we can begin to test ourselves. Aim to get used to adding a little more weight whilst keeping good technique with these sets of 2-3 reps. Phase V is where the magic will happen so avoid trying to max out every day of every week during phase IV (or ever) as this will be detrimental to your progress. Hold back slightly and leave some in the tank for the coming weeks. Your nervous system needs time to adjust to the 90+ loads so please don’t overreach in the first few weeks.

Wednesday and Saturday will still be our energy systems and team workout days respectively!

Momentum x Coronavirus

At Momentum Training, the health and safety of our members and staff are the number one priority. We ARE OPEN and trading as normal. Here’s a little bit about what we are doing in the gym to keep us as safe as possible, please note this requires some input from you, the members.

2020 – Part III

This being the last week of the third phase of training this year. We have the opportunity to test a couple of things this week. That being the 1+1 on the Power Clean + Clean complex, Split Jerk & Power Snatch + Snatch complex. Let’s get these tested this week. Next week we will see these lifts go to Clean and Jerk and Snatch as a singular movement for another 3-6 weeks. This should lead to some PB’s in the very near future. As always record those numbers and know where you stand. What you measure you can manage!
