    I joined HENCH last year to prolong my sporting career. At 35 I was about to start a new season with my local team where the average age is 22. I’ve always been a member of gyms around Belfast and would have considered myself to be fairly knowledgeable in relation to weights training. However, when I joined HENCH, what I got was an education. An education I wish I had 15 years ago. There is a great atmosphere around the place, unlike any other gym I have attended, it actually feels more like a club or team. Subsequently with my team we have had are most successful season ever, reaching an all Ireland final of which I’ve been able to contribute thanks to the team at Hench for their coaching and expertise.

    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.

  • Eoin

    Great gym with really knowledgeable and passionate staff. A community of likeminded people, all looking to better themeselves in one way or another. Equally suitable to both the beginner and advanced trainer. Without doubt the best decision I have taken in respect of my health and well-being has been joining Hench. I cannot recommend the place enough.
