Unique & Backed by Science
Training is always by appointment with a personal trainer and becuase our studios are air conditioned to 18°C, you don’t sweat. You can literally train in your suit!
fit20's slow speed training has been scientifically proven to increase strength gains of between 30 - 50% with only one 20 minute training session a week. This is proven and measuarble using our proprietary software and technology. Strength is the foundation for health, our members have reported lowered blood pressure, decreased blood sugar levels, improved flexibility and an increase in energy levels.
I have lost weight, toned up, have a lot more strength when walking and have increased my confidence in my overall body strength. My breathing is better, my Osteoporosis has improved I feel like I have stronger bones-and have more confidence in my ability to exercise. I feel far more balanced and stable than before and I look and feel slimmer. I have found fit20 addictive and do not miss any sessions. I previously used to get back ache, though not anymore!
