Get Started

Personalised Roadmap

We'll help you take the guesswork out of strength training so you can achieve your unique goals.

Pioneering Approach

With 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.

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.

Personal 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!

    Started at Hench recently, on the 8 week strength programme for beginners. Cool, genuine bunch of people, that are incredibly supportive, know their stuff and are more than willing to help guide you in the right direction. The gym has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, making it non-intimidating for people that are just starting, whilst offering a range of small group PT sessions that are suited to a varying range of capabilities/goals. As a beginner, I'm always learning something new, and each session is good fun - 100% :)

    I had been training by myself for a few years & felt things had plateaued, i was getting a bit bored with my commercial gym so decided I would give the Hench a try. It was exactly what i needed, i signed up & with the coaches help, I set some new personal goals. I joined their small group classes & 2.5 years later I am still making progress, still loving it & still learning all the time. They run excellent programs designed to get the most out of your workout and most importantly you learn how to do things right. The equipment is great, the coaches are sound & are dedicated to movement quality & precision. This is the best gym in town, go check them out.
