Get Stronger

Belfast’s Strength Gym.

HENCH is a pioneering training facility in Belfast City centre that’s dedicated to helping members become stronger from the inside out. We build bodies and minds that are primed to meet the demands of modern life. Your physical and mental wellbeing is as important to us as your ability to squat or bench press. Our expert coaching team, lead by former Irish No. 1 ranked Powerlifter Rory Girvan, helps build your strength, wellbeing and resilience. We get to know you as a person, understand your goals and support you every step of the way. Our inclusive community of like-minded people is a fun environment to get results and build a long-term sustainable relationship with your health and fitness.

Stronger From The Inside Out.

HENCH develops your physical strength and prepares you for the challenges of the real world. The stuff that really matters to you and your life - playing with your kids, helping out around the house and being active. Strength is about moving well and moving often with progressive resistance. We improve your strength and wellbeing with detailed programmes of loaded movements, designed to improve maximum strength, flexibility, mobility and stability. We combine this with metabolic conditioning methods, which improve your cardiovascular health and fitness. We work with you to define your individual strength goals. Our team of coaches are always on hand to guide you based on your goals and needs.

Strong Body. Strong Mind.

Mental health is at the core of everything we do at HENCH. Not only do our coaches help you to develop a lifestyle that supports your physical and mental goals, but we’re also heavily involved with a number of local mental health charities and corporate partners with Inspire, Northern Ireland’s largest mental health charity. At HENCH we aren’t interested in quick fixes or fad diets. We work as hard as you do on your training, nutrition and habits to help create a sustainable lifestyle that supports your mental and physical wellbeing. Health and fitness doesn’t begin and end at our doors. Focusing on movement, nutrition and recovery in and outside of the gym, we make longlasting positive impacts on your health for the rest of your life.

Don’t Just Look The Part. Be The Part.

Life is stressful. We mostly consider stress as being negative, but positive stress like exercise, sauna use and cold water therapy, help us deal with stress better. Positive stress is a short term effect on the body that helps us to deal with all forms of stress, from work deadlines to exam pressure and general daily life. This process is known as The Net Resilience Effect. By dealing with stress in a controlled environment we build resilience, the ability to adapt to stress and even slow the effects ageing. Our coaches help you to understand the role of stress, the different types of stress and how to manage your own stress levels by using our state of the art recovery therapies.
