FAQ

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.

Testimonials:

  • I had a training session with Craig today.I hadn't been to the gym in a few months but I did surprisingly well, Craig's encouragement helped. I learnt a few new exercises too. I liked the fact there wasn't any equipment involved, the flexibility means you could do it at home if you wanted.Craig explained what muscle groups the various exercises focused on and gave a thorough demonstration of how to do the exercises correctly.I thoroughly enjoyed the session and recommend his personal training skills to anyone, whether you're starting out or want to change up your exercise routine.Thanks again Craig 😊

  • I go to Craig's weekly core conditioning classes. I like the way he varies the exercises each week, he always demonstrates how the exercises should be done to get the maximum benefit and gives options if too challenging. He is always patient and friendly and is a great motivator.

  • I would absolutely recommend Craig for personal training, he is very knowledgeable and manages to keep me motivated even on the days I don’t feel it. His pricing is very reasonable and I get a lot out of each session, he even manages to keep each session interesting by introducing new exercises that are easy to do on your own inbetween sessions.

  • I've been training with Craig Jackson (Riverside Leisure Centre ) for almost a year now, and believe he is one of the most committed and dedicated trainers. I started a personal one on one session training once a week, and really enjoyed the variety and challenges he put into the sessions.
    He is really focused on helping me achieve my goals and makes every session challenging. My fitness has improved noticeably, and I've seen improvements in my ability to complete more sit ups/ core exercises, generally push myself harder throughout each session.
    Most importantly: He ensures that my technique is always correct to avoid any injuries . Thanks Craig for your help and support.

  • Craig is a brilliant PT. Super motivational and friendly, but pushes you all the way at the same time. I was a bit out of practice exercise wise due to lockdown, but Craig got me over my nervousness really quickly, and now I'm feeling great about getting moving again.

  • Craig is an excellent coach for PT and Group exercise, he is knowledgeable, friendly and makes you feel at ease straightaway. As someone with a reasonable level of fitness, Craig has written me a programme that is challenging but achievable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for PT in the area.

  • 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!

    Both Craig and Stu are knowledgeable and professional instructors. Come along to the Bootcamps, you will love it.

    Great variety of exercises, never boring or monotonous, always challenging and fun . Everyone is so friendly and welcoming.

    Thank you both for all your hard work in putting together great classes aimed at every fitness level.
