Gymbo’s was established in 2007 and is a specialist in functional training. Functional training consists of exercises that do not involve machines and is the most effective form of exercise to achieve real world strength, fitness & health - whether it be for sports or for everyday life. We promote functional training as it is the most time efficient form of exercise and therefore gives you the most reward for your hard work! Whether your goal is to lose fat, build muscle, or improve your fitness, balance, mobility, posture or strength, functional fitness is a must regardless of your gender, age or fitness level. Best of all, functional exercises are more mentally stimulating, fun, and make you more likely to stick to a regime rather than give up through the boredom of using the same old machines.read more

Connor came to us with a clear goal and short deadline. In 8 weeks' time he was due to enter the Forces. Our mission was to get him in the best shape possible so that he had an advantage over the other cadets. Before he came to us, Connor worked out regularly but was not getting much in the way of results and he could never manage to lose the last bit of stubborn body fat he had deposited around his belly button and lower chest.
We focused on dietary changes in addition to high intensity training to ramp up his fitness, endurance & strength; and despite not being his main focus, he lost body fat & increased muscle definition.
Key Statistics: Timeframe: 8 Weeks Body Fat % Reduction: 5.4%*
