Strength Islington Training Options
Our Strength Training sessions in Islington can be held at your home, inside or outside, or at an outside location near your home or workplace.
Personal Training – 1 to 1
Your personal training session will last for one hour. Your instructor will take you through a warm-up, followed by a full-body workout involving resistance training, weights and HIIT, finishing up with a stretch and cool down. Prior to your first session, you will have the chance to chat with your instructor about your fitness goals, any particular exercise likes and dislikes, giving you both the chance to agree a suitable training program. Your workout will be designed specifically for your needs and ability.
Price per single session = £65
Monthly package (1 session per week) = £250
Train with a friend
If you want to have extra motivation, accountability, and maybe a few extra laughs in your training sessions, the train with a friend option is a great one. This training session will be 45 minutes long and is the same price as the 1 to 1 session, meaning it’s half price for each of you. Both of your individual needs and abilities will be considered by the instructor, to produce a training program that works for you both.
Price per session = £65
Monthly package (1 session per week) = £250
Small group training session
For a small group fitness session, we’ll probably need to train you in your garden or an appropriate outside location convenient for you. This means the instructor has more freedom to get you all moving around without accidently knocking each other out! Small group fitness sessions are lots of fun, enjoyed weekly by groups of friends before a coffee, by work colleagues wanting a “time out” in the middle of their working day, and also as part of special occasion day events. Sessions last for 45 minutes, and we’ll need 4 of you at a minimum to book this package. You can be guaranteed to work super hard, and have a laugh whilst you’re at it.
Price per session = £18 per person (minimum of 4 people)

Benefits of strength training
Strength training has been shown to have benefits for chronic disease management. Regular strength training has demonstrated decreased pain for those suffering from arthritis and has resulted in improved glucose control for Type-2 diabetes patients.
Strength training increases your muscle mass, making you stronger and helping to boost your metabolism. You’ll burn calories more efficiently.
Strength training can help reduce your risk of injury, especially as your body ages. It will strengthen your muscles and ligaments, help support your joints, and improve your range of motion and mobility.
Without a doubt, strength training can improve your self-confidence. Studies have shown that as we feel stronger physically, we start to believe we are more capable of achieving things and out productivity levels increase. You will feel more positive about your body image and will have improved self-esteem.
Research has concluded that regular strength training improves your cardiovascular health. It can lower your blood pressure and reduce the risk of health problems such as hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
Should I be strength training?
Yes! Strength training doesn’t have to mean lifting heavy weights and creating bulky physiques. The aim of strength training is to build and maintain muscle strength so that your everyday functional movements are easy, your joints and bones are full supported, and you minimise your risk of injury.
What does a training session involve?
You’ll start with a warm-up to get your blood flowing and make sure your body is prepared for your workout. This will be followed by your main workout section, which can include weight training, resistance training, body weight training and HIIT training. The session will be tailored according to your ability and fitness goals. You’ll end the session with a cool down and stretch.
What time of day should I train at?
This is completely individual. You should train when it feels best for your body. It’s pointless dragging yourself out of bed for a 6am workout if you are naturally a night owl. You just won’t perform at your best and you won’t achieve the best results for you.
How much space do I need to train?
If you’re having a 1 to 1 session, you really don’t need a lot of space. Most exercises can be performed in a space the size of a yoga mat. Try to ensure you don’t have a coffee table or low-hanging light etc around you that might restrict your movements. Space to lie down fully and stretch out your arms to the side and above your head is a minimum requirement.
Should I train if I’m not feeling well?
If you’ve just got the sniffles, then you should be okay. But if your body feels overly tired, you have aches and pains, or you’re suffering with full-on cold symptoms, we advise not to. Please take a Covid test before training if you have any related symptoms.
Jamie demonstrates each move, and joins in, giving us prompts during the class so we remember, especially if we were working through a sequence. This is really helpful, as some instructors would just name the moves. It’s difficult to copy others over zoom. He always gives at least two options, so anyone who needs a low impact version could also have a high intensity workout. … he was great at programming workouts that catered for all abilities, taking advantage of the space. There were options for those of us who wanted to progress, but also for people working out for the first time in several months he would offer alternative moves. The workouts incorporate different moves which kept things interesting if regularly attending, also giving you a strong base to build on and develop. I can lift heavier dumbbells and run faster now than I could before lockdown! Again, Jamie offered clear instructions, frequent demos and constructive adjustments before and during each exercise.
