His early twenties, Peter was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Upon learning this, he was proactive in his efforts to seek ways to help manage his new condition in addition to the medical care he was receiving – reaching out to Personal Trainers in the commercial gym he was training at during this time. He was then issued with the cookie-cutter programme, copied and pasted from the internet with no regard for Peter’s unique issues. Unfortunately, this is what happens 95% of the time, based on what we hear from new members. Scary, but true. Peter then came to HENCH, where he was properly assessed and then joined the HENCH Adult Programme. As part of this programme, he continues to receive individualised advice, coaching, and recommendations based on his unique requirements (as we do with all our members). As a result of ongoing coaching support in the four key areas of focus for the HENCH Adult Programme which are movement, mindset, nutrition and recovery – Peter is more determined, more focused and has better concentration than ever. Despite his condition, and a demanding career Peter has conquered these obstacles to become healthiest, strongest, leanest and most athletic he’s been in his life. This process wasn’t easy didn’t happen overnight and required a tremendous amount of consistent hard work. HENCH is dedicated to the pursuit of strength, wellbeing and resilience. Independent, locally owned since 2012. Results-driven training gym Belfast City Centre.

What Michael has achieved transcends all of these immense feats, and in truth ...Read More
