Yes we cater for all abilities.  

Classes are written so that everyone there will be pushed to their fitness level.  

Some sessions are banded Green (Beginner) Yellow (Intermediate) and Red (Advanced).  The sessions are run in the same format for all but the exercises given may be slightly varied dependant on your band.

You do not need to bring any equipment as this is provided.  The majority of Catton Park sessions are bodyweight only or we incorporate resistance bands.

At Whitlingham we are able to use more equipment, which is sanitised and supplied for your workout.

All exercises can be adapted to your current level of strength or fitness.

We recommend you bring a water bottle and hand sanitiser.  A backpack is a good idea too.

These classes are for over 16’s.  No maximum age group.

The classes are designed to test every level.  An advanced class is not required nor is a beginners class.  All abilities will be pushed to their level in the Bootcamp.

  • Craig's popular Core Conditioning classes are good fun and a good work out, and they always vary slightly each week. Craig demonstrates each exercise at the beginning of the class and he offers several alternatives if you've got an injury or weak spot, and he will come and show you on the way round if you forget what to do. The music is great, and I always seem to enjoy the exercises more the second time round the circuit! Thanks Craig for the interesting exercises!

  • Craig is extremely knowledgeable and up-to-date about all things body, weight and training related. He also has a kind, respectful and very much collaborative approach to the sessions which means I don't have to think too hard about what's working and what's not - I can just trust the flow. For the past 10 months he's ensured that I have a clear set of targets agreed with him, tailored sessions to suit my changing energy levels and pre-existing injuries and a good level of confidence that I can do this. Craig also carries out regular reviews/adjustment to my routine. Overall I've seen the results in terms of improved strength, stamina and mental well being. Craig doesn't make my efforts to get-fit feel like a chore and I have looked forward to going to the gym for our sessions every week since the beginning.

  • I have been working with Craig for several months and can thoroughly reccommend his PT sessions. As someone with rather tricky requirements (I broke my neck, pelvis, hip and wrist a few years ago and have to be careful with what I do) he has been fantastic in pushing me, whilst remaining appreciative of the physical limitations I have. He is always flexible which really helps as my work diary changes often and at short notice. We have been using Craig's home gym and this is really convenient for my location and has everything you need for a good workout. Highly recommended.

  • Been having personal training sessions with Craig for the last 5 weeks and it's made such a difference to my physical performance and is getting me on the right path to where I want to be. I would definitely recommend starting sessions, even if you are a complete novice like I was, Craig will be able to help push you and put together a routine to fit your needs.
