Frequently Asked Questions
What if I have never lifted weights before?
Our 8 Week Beginners’ Strength Programme is designed for those individuals who have little or no experience of weight/gym-based training.
We personalise the programme to you, take it at your own pace and help you build your confidence with safe, efficient and effective strength training methods.
How does the Beginners’ Strength Programme work?
The programme runs for eight consecutive weeks.
Each week, you will have the opportunity to attend up to three Beginners’ Strength sessions per week. These are small group personal training sessions which are led by a member of our expert coaching team.
Small group personal training provides you with coaching that is personal and unique to you, whilst allowing you to be part of a fun group of like-minded people, who are on the same journey as you.
What if I’ve had a previously negative gym experience?
We’re sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, many people come to us having had a less than positive previous experience of the gym.
At HENCH, we approach things a bit differently. We’ve worked really hard to build an inclusive community and environment that welcomes and supports you, no matter what point of your fitness journey you are at.
We put you as an individual first, taking things at a pace that suits you and meeting you where you are at this minute in time. The thought of forcing anyone into something they aren't comfortable with is our worst nightmare.
What if I have aches, pains or injuries?
Many of our members come to us with injuries or life-related issues like joint niggles, back pain or unwanted weight gain.
Our coaching team is highly experienced in creating personalised approached programmes that target and improve a wide range of conditions. Whilst we have succeeded in improving many conditions, we’re not physiotherapists. When necessary, we actively consult with medical professionals such as physiotherapists or consultants when members are returning from specific injuries or treatment.
What happens after the Beginners’ Strength Programme?
You’re free to choose. If you want to carry on and work with us to reach your fitness goals, we’ll suggest an appropriate membership option and programme going forward.
The majority of our first Beginners’ Strength Programme from January 2019 are still with us, working hard and continuing to become stronger than ever!
If you decide that HENCH isn’t for you, you can simply say goodbye. We’ll be sorry to see you go, but we accept that we can’t be all things to all people.
I have trained in gyms before but I still want to learn proper strength training. Can I take part in the programme?
Fantastic - we’re always excited to hear about people who want to learn the skill of proper strength training!
