Boditrax™

Knowledge is power when it comes to your body and everybody can benefit from finding a little bit more about theirs. Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned gym goer, learning about the make-up of your body can focus your workouts and help you hit your goals.

Boditrax™ is a medically validated way to understand your body’s composition. By analysing your body fat percentage, muscle mass, hydration levels and much more, it provides you with a comprehensive breakdown of exactly what you’re made of. Your results can then be accessed online so you can view your data in more detail and keep track of your development.

TRX

Developed by a former Navy Seal, this form of suspension training develops your strength, balance, flexibility and core stability, all whilst building muscle. 

TRX are those black and yellow straps you’ll see hanging around the gym floor. They rely on your own bodyweight for resistance as opposed to machines or dumbbells, while the infinite variety of exercises makes it perfect for everyone regardless of ability. Try a few of them next time you’re in the gym.
