Success Stories From Members

Balaclava Fitness have fantastic coaches who work really closely with you to ensure you are getting the knowledge and understanding of basic skills. You will be challenged every day you come into the gym. I have found just how much I can push myself to do things I would never have believed possible. The coaches will push you to reach your best and continually encourage you to work on your weaknesses.
You will become fit and strong. You will get out what you put in. I know through all the hard work the coaches have put into me, that I benefit in every training session. I really enjoy the atmosphere at Balaclava Fitness, everyone in your class will encourage you to push hard and to finish your workout, no matter how much you think you can’t. A very happy and fun environment that you will achieve lots in!

I love this gym. I love how the trainers are dedicated to helping you improve and beat your personal bests. I love how it always challenges and can be easily scaled to any level of fitness or ability. But the thing I love most about Balaclava Fitness is the camaraderie. At other gyms you turn up, do your workout and go home. But here there’s a community. People chat before and after the sessions and, most importantly, support each other through the workouts. I frequently finish last but I am never alone in doing so.
