At Compound Strength & Conditioning we believe your training should prepare you for the challenges of your daily life; whether you are striving to be an athlete or to be able to play with your kids. We offer an inclusive program which is designed to meet the needs of every individual that trains with us. Built around personal training in a group environment, our classes are capped at 12 members which means you can expect to receive personalized coaching and advice in every class.
So who are ‘we’ and why should you come and train with us? Although we would love you to pop down to the gym and have a chat in person, we’ll give you a chance to get to know a little about us first...
Not only does our small class environment and researched programming set us apart, we feel that our community is one of a kind. We value every single member of our gym and the best thing is that they all value each other just as much. The camaraderie, support and care shown on a daily basis makes us so proud and even more excited to welcome new faces to be a part of it.
Not only do we train together, cheer each other on, pick each other up, but we also drink coffee together, go for walks together, even dog sit for each other. At Compound you will meet the kind of friends who bring the best out of you; rain or shine, through thick & thin.
Q: Do I need to be fit to join Compound?
A: Do you have to have Nike running shoes to run? No, of course you don’t. Nike are just one brand of fitness trainers, just like super fit people are just one portion of people who attend any specific gym. All of our classes are open to all ages (well 16+), fitness levels and abilities. Movements can be scaled to allow all members to do the same workout together at the same time.
Q: What does scaled/scalable mean?
A: It means we can adapt the workout to suit yours, or anyone’s, fitness level and ability.
Q: How often should I train?
A: As much as you want to and feels right for you. Some members come in 5 days a week, some come in a couple... whatever works with your life, and anything is better than doing nothing right?!
Q: Where are your machines?
A: Apart from rowers, we have none. We utilise functional movements which transfer over into helping you be better at every day life; if you improve your deadlift, grip and carrying then you are sure to find lugging around your weekly shop much easier!
Q: Why Compound?
A: Compound is an independent gym; owned and run by 3 experienced, passionate and local coaches. We want everyone to achieve their goals, no matter what they might be, and will work with you daily to achieve them. The community and atmosphere at Compound is like no other; everyone will know your name and want the best for you from day one.
Q: Can you pay per session if you are not a member?
A: Yes, drop ins are £6 per class/open gym
Q: How do I get started?
A: Drop us a message and come down to the gym for a free trial session. If you love it, we will get you booked on to an induction which will take you through the fundamental movements you will see in our classes. After that, you’re ready to get started!
We have a range of membership packages available to suit your schedule and budget.
