Warrior Strong Fitness brings people together, strengthening communities through daily workouts to challenge and prove to people they are capable of more; by applying fundamental principles used in the Armed Forces.

The Ultimate Training Experience

Warrior Strong Fitness has been created by a former Parachute Regiment and Royal Army Physical Training Corps fitness professional. 

A typical session will use TABBING and HIIT training to build endurance, strength and character.

'Tabbing' is a military term used for tactical advance to battle. In its raw form, it means moving with weight. This has huge fitness benefits including increased fat loss due to a high level of energy expenditure it requires, enhanced anaerobic capacity and advanced core strength endurance to name a few. Training with weight also has the added advantage of carrying your own gym on your back which will be adapted for many more exercises during the session. The weight carried will be determined by the level of your ability.

If you are a CrossFit athlete, joining the services, preparing for a fitness event or just looking for a unique, varied, fun and serious way to train Warrior Strong Fitness is where you  need to be. We will assist you in achieving your true fitness potential and reaching your goals, with every session being delivered with passion and a positive military style ethos.

In addition to training on an individual level we also cater for corporate activities and sports teams.
