“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.”
Like all of our members, Neil has an extremely busy life outside of the gym with huge demands on his time. As a Doctor and a competitive athlete, he is left with little time and no room to gamble when it comes to his strength and conditioning and physical preparation.
His goals were to work on injury prevention, to get stronger, fitter and more physically prepared for an upcoming hockey season. With over 20 years of experience of playing, Neil initially sought out HENCH to tell him what he needed to do to improve as a player, fed up with diminished returns of training on his own.
This year, Neil followed his instincts and abandoned the commercial gym and training on his own – and is now stronger, leaner (shredded), fitter and more athletic than he has ever been in his life.
HENCH is dedicated to the pursuit of strength, wellbeing and resilience. Independent, locally owned since 2012. Results-driven training gym Belfast City Centre.
