I came to RWF because the reviews on their site gave the impression that it was a down-to-earth place with knowledgeable trainers.
I wanted a place that wasn’t about posing and posturing, but about real results without injury. Having struggled with strength gains where they were key to improving in my sport, I figured it was time to improve my power to weight ratio by targeting my strength, rather than simply focusing on trying to lose weight (why this never occurred to me before is beyond me). And in all honesty, months working from home and a busy job meant I was also dedicating less time to my sport and more time to the TV.
I was so glad that I took the leap – I can honestly report that all the reviews are true – RWF is full of good people.
I’ve been training with Derran for 2 months so far – the technique he’s instilled in our training has ensured I remain injury free, I’ve already seen significant improvements that had previously evaded me no matter what I tried, and Chris’ Monday morning circuits are full of encouragement and a great way to start the week.
RWF has a great atmosphere, a team spirit, inspiring trainers and clients, wonderful free coffee, and the occasional free puppy (but only for temporary cuddles).
There’s always plenty of equipment available, and importantly, it’s completely friendly to, and unintimidating for, women. A really genuine, friendly bunch of people in a really genuine gym with lots of expertise to draw on should you need it.
