If you’re looking for strength training in Nottingham, you’ve got a lot of options.

As a city, Nottingham is gifted with more gyms per capita than pretty much any other city in the UK.

But, as many of you will know, not all gyms are the same.

Many places will talk about strength; but it’s hard to define. Strength does have some objective, absolute values, but a lot of it is subjective.

To some hardcore, spit’n’sawdust powerlifting gyms, you’ve got no business even mentioning strength training unless you can deadlift 300kg and are knocking back enough chemical enhancements to make Arnie blush. That’s great for their target market, but it’s a bit crap for the general public. It seems exclusive, exclusionary and intimidating. It’s also unnecessary for 99.9% of people.

So let’s swing the other way – ‘the strength is movement, anything is better than nothing, be kind to yourself and just focus on you’ gyms. Again – great, for that market that wants an excuse not to succeed, but we’ve found that message a bit belittling over the years. It puts the the brakes on achievement before you’ve even started. The message is ‘don’t worry, you don’t have to make any real effort beyond turning up’.

Strength Training in Nottingham – where should you lift?

This is where we come in. Strength training in Nottingham needed a realistic home. Where you don’t need to bench 140kg for reps, but you’ll certainly be told it’s possible and you should have a stab at working towards it. Where, while we recognise you can’t smash it every session (and we advise against that anyway) we insist on continual improvement. Where we push people to do things they would not have even considered possible without a gentle, and sometimes insistent, nudge from us.

At Real World Fitness in Nottingham, you’re lifting around other professionals. Busy people, with busy lives, with commitments outside the gym. People that simply can’t spend 3hrs in the gym five nights a week. People that don’t want to miss spending time with their kids in order of get a session in.

You’re lifting on kit that has been sourced by people that actually train, not just purchased from a sales rep to fill space, with no regard to whether it’s any good or not.

Strength training shouldn’t be an exclusive private club. It should be for anyone who wants to be stronger than they currently are.

We’re unashamed to state this: we do strength training for normal people better than anywhere else we’ve seen in Nottingham. Ok; it’s a bold claim, but after nearly 20 years in business, it’s a valid one.

If you’ve resisted strength training because you think you’ll have devote your life to it, or have been convinced that a mediocre circuit sessions classes as “strength training”, or had a PT that spends more time chatting than training you – come and visit us for some realistic strength training in Nottingham.
