Group classes and personal training
Life is a busy place and we all want to get the most out of our workout time. Enter GPP; a general physical preparedness programme that combines cardiovascular endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. Our sessions are carefully designed and instructed by experienced coaches with your health and safety as number one priority. You’ll be using barbells, dumbbells, gymnastic rings, pull-up bars, kettlebells, medicine balls, plyo boxes and more to form a prescribed “Workout of the Day” or “WOD”. Hour-long classes typically include a warm-up, a skill development or strength segment, a high-intensity section and a period of mobility. Your performance in each class is often scored and/or ranked to encourage competition but most importantly to track your individual progress.
GPP intro course
We have thought long and hard about the most effective way to introduce new members to the world of lifting and our course is truly for anyone. No matter what your sports background (or lack of one) or your fitness level, this is one of the best (and most fun) ways to get you confident and involved in our GPP classes. Sign yourself up here and get involved.
Our Met Con class is a fun, hardcore, intelligently programmed circuit class following a simple, effective and tested structure: Warm up section – we get you moving and working through a series of stretches and movement patterns which progressively warm you up, work out aches and pains and allow us to assess and address your problem areas. Main body of work – a circuit of exercises, movements and challenges where we you get you working hard. This section will encompass all the big primary functional movements including: squats, lunges, pushing, pulling, bending, twisting, hitting, jumping, running, throwing, climbing and, above all, having fun. Metcon is simpler than CrossFit, does not contain complex lifts or heavy weights, and is open to all, regardless of skill level.
The aim of this class is to give our members the opportunity to spend some time building muscle tone and getting strong. The classes will be structured to work from large compound movements through to specific isolation exercises to help improve body composition and ultimately athleticism. Oiling up and shaving down is optional. Getting stuck in is compulsory. This class is only for members and not for drop in sessions.
Gymnastics is all about moving your body weight with controlled slow movements. It offers many benefits to flexibility, strength and motor control, among other things, that are transferable to other sports. It will also increase the longevity and training age of any athlete. Many of us avoid these movements because we think they’re not as exciting as other sports, they are not easy to master, and visible progress may be slow. Take the time to practise gymnastic movements and you will reap rewards, including improvements in overall strength, movement quality and efficiency. As with all training at Momentum, we’ll make it fun and satisfying.
Open gym allows our members to schedule their own workouts at our amazing training space. Members can work on improving their technique and form or pursue assistance work from our super coaches. Med-ball cleans, pushes and jerks, double-unders, and kipping pull-ups are just some of the skills to master. Please note that Open Gym sessions require advance booking in the same way as our other classes.
Our experienced personal trainers work with you to design bespoke programs to hone your strength, body composition, cardiovascular fitness, speed, power, balance, co-ordination, confidence and general awesomeness. Recovery, nutrition, lifestyle, sleep and stress management are all also important factors that need to be monitored for optimal results and understanding how to make the right lifestyle choices outside of the gym makes all the difference. We aim to make achieving your goals fun and sustainable as part of your lifestyle. Read more or contact Josh for more info.
StrongCon will consist of half strength and half conditioning. Think Barbell Club meets MetCon. The weightlifting element will be a scale-up from regular MetCon by replacing dumbbells with barbells for the main lifts*. This will give you the opportunity to add some weight to your squat, deadlift, bench press and overhead press. (*All movements will be fully taught to any beginners and scales will be given where necessary). This will be followed by accessory exercises with dumbbells and cables for stability and joint health. The conditioning element will be traditional MetCon: assault bike, rower, running, ski erg, sled pushing and so on.
