Henchmen: Chima

“Like pretty much everybody else every year, you make a resolution – and in this case, the resolution took me to HENCH, and it worked out rather better than my previous attempts… This seemed to represent something different – and it is.” Like all of our members, Chima has an extremely busy life outside of the gym with huge demands on his time. As a PHD student, he spends most days writing for up to 10 hours a day – leaving little time for much else. This year, Chima heeded the advice of some of his family members who worked with us before. He abandoned the commercial gym to try something different and in 2017 he has went from zero to 12 (twelve!) bodyweight Chin-Ups, put 39% on his Squat, 31% on his Bench Press, increased his Farmer’s Walk by 41% whilst simultaneously increasing several measures of overall fitness by as much as 25% – all this whilst losing 12kg on the scales! HENCH is dedicated to the pursuit of strength, wellbeing and resilience. Independent, locally owned since 2012. Results-driven training gym Belfast City Centre.

His unflinching determination earned him the nickname of The Cyborg amongst his fellow HENCHMEN, and deservedly so – well done Joel. HENCH is dedicated ...

“I’ve been to a lot of different gyms…. I should have picked HENCH sooner. I feel that training at HENCH is so well rounded that it has made me stronger, and have that ability to push through discomfort.”
