Strength Classes

Three reasons why a Strength class could be good for you

Feel better

Strength training isn’t all about powerlifting and rippling muscles - it’s actually one of the best ways to trim fat, lose weight, tone and condition and improve cognitive function.

Learn technique

Strength training looks completely different for everyone because it can be adapted and individualised for your body. We’ll teach you how to lift weights the right way, the first time.

Focus on progression

Learn a series of skills that you can build upon week by week, as well as building strength. Be exposed to moves that will both challenge and advance you.

The best experience during my time at FP was when another member, who became a friend afterwards, came up to me after a class telling me he felt inspired by my effort, that I was cheering him up and motivating him to go harder. Being a lazy person by nature, I've never thought anyone could see me that way and that I could make a difference for the people around me during training.

“I love the classes and the customer service there. The staff are very friendly and helpful and I think the gym has a great atmosphere. There are so many classes available and as I'm a very busy single Mum, it really works for me. Plus there is a creche which isn't very costly so I can take my daughter there while I work out.”

FAQ

What are Strength classes?

Strength classes involve the performance of physical exercises which are designed to improve strength & endurance. At Fitness Playground, we provide an array of different formats & class types varying from 45 minutes to hour long workouts. Strength training is great for maintaining muscle tissue, increasing strength, improving bone health, controlling body fat & decreasing the risk of injury. Our instructors take pride in not only providing a solid workout, but ensuring that you are executing exercises with the correct technique.

What should I expect in class?

When you arrive at your Strength class, our instructors will be waiting to greet you. Their introduction will be focused on explaining the class format, what equipment you’ll be using, and will ask if you are working with any injuries or restrictions. Class formats can be tailored to wherever you’re at in your fitness journey, no one is too new or too advanced. You’ll meet an array of instructors, all bringing a unique style to their Strength classes. We do ask that you please arrive five minutes early to your class so your instructor can start on time.

What do I bring to my Strength class?

We provide the equipment, the instructors and a one-of-a-kind studio. All that we ask is that you please bring a towel, water bottle (preferably not plastic as we’re not big on that) and your energy! We heavily enforce the towel policy (no towel, no play, no gym today).

What other facilities are available?

Along with our Battleground studio fitted out with an epic sound system, you’ll have full access to our gym facilities. These include our boutique bathrooms that are fitted out with showers, lockers, hair dryers, hair straighteners & botanical soaps.

Can I bring someone?

Of course! When we reach out to book you in, don’t be afraid to tell us who you’d like to bring along to your first Strength class.
