Personalised Roadmap

With our pioneering approach to small-group strength training (SGST) you can confidently drive long-term progress by following a personalised program using reserved equipment, training at a time that suits your schedule with highly qualified, expert coaches with you each step of the way so you won't ever feel lost or overwhelmed.

Our Proven Path

We'll help you set realistic expectations of progress over different timeframes, tailor our approach to meet your evolving needs and aspirations and act as your guide to avoid misinformation, quick fixes, and impersonal training programs. You'll learn to master the basics and train independently to make training part of your life for decades to come.

Your Journey

Our methods are about one thing: Your journey. It's not about achieving a universal standard of strength or a preconceived aesthetic ideal, but about becoming the strongest version of yourself. We align your program and daily actions with your goals as you progress through your journey.

    I have been training at HENCH now for 9 months. The facilities are great, the training is top class and the coaches are very knowledgeable and approachable. The attention to detail that you get in HENCH is brilliant. This has made a huge difference in improving my lifts and form each session. The atmosphere in the gym is great and I couldn't recommend it enough for anyone in the Belfast area!

    Great gym. Coaches are extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to each member. Good atmosphere with like minded people. More expensive than other gyms but you certainly get what you pay for at HENCH👌. Gym is suitable for all people no matter what stage they're at on their journey.

    A completely unique gym, there is no-where in Belfast like it. Besides the excellent equipment, knowledgeable coaches and friendly environment, this gym focuses on the progress of every individual. Small classes ensure a high level of individual attention and coaching. The coaches have created a safe, friendly and enjoyable atmosphere. I cannot recommend this gym highly enough.

World-class facilities.

The first and largest of its kind in Northern Ireland. Our gym is purposely designed so that our members train in small groups following their own personal programme, using reserved equipment for each session, which means no queues or sharing for a better experience.

Modern City Centre Facility

The best equipped private training facility in Northern Ireland, based right beside Belfast's famous St. Georges Market. Private changing and private showing facilities are also provided for our members.

Reserved Equipment

Get the most out of each session. You'll have access to all your own equipment, which means no queues or none of the waiting times faced when sharing with someone. You can rest assured you're training in a clean, safe environment where you'll be made to feel comfortable from your first visit.

Progress Tracking

Technology, in the right amounts. We tailor individualised programmes objectively measure training progress to chart performance improvements to show you how fast you progress across different exercises.

We utilise medical-grade body composition analysis to evaluate and review our member's progress in muscle gain and body fat loss and a range of other useful metrics for assessing strength, resilience, and wellbeing.
