At HENCH we aren’t interested in quick fixes or fad diets. We work as hard as you 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. That is why our coaches help our members to develop sustainable lifestyle habits which support their health and fitness goals. By focusing on your movement, nutrition and recovery in and outside of the gym, we are able to positively impact your health and lifespan. As charity partners with Inspire Wellbeing and Recovery – mental wellbeing is an issue of particular importance to us.


Life is stressful. However, we mostly consider stress as being negative. Positive stress like exercise, sauna use and cold water therapy, help activate the body’s stress response. Positive stress is a short term stressor on the body that helps us to deal with all forms of stress, including work deadlines, exam pressure or other responsibilities. This process is known as the net resilience effect. In short helping build resilience; including the body’s ability to adapt to stress and slow ageing. As a member, our coaches will 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.
