We are very excited to welcome strength and conditioning specialists ‘The Athlete Centre Didcot’ within our F.I.T Zone area.
What is the Athlete Centre?
Athlete Centre Didcot run specialist strength and conditioning classes for all abilities, offering an additional 27 classes a week. The classes are led by qualified coaches using a combination of free weights, kettlebells, gymnastics, Olympic lifts and cardiovascular functional exercises. The combination of these exercises are used to develop your all round fitness levels.
The principles of the Athlete Centre are to ensure that each workout is constantly varied, ensuring the classes are always exciting, different and challenging. Classes are suitable for people of all shapes, size, age and ability to improve their overall fitness in a fun and challenging environment.
Unless you are experienced in attending strength & conditioning classes, you will be required to attend our introductory sessions. The sessions will teach you how to perform the movements in a safe and correct manner, preparing you for your first class. The session also provides our coaches with the opportunity to get to know you — your abilities and goals and assess what weights will be appropriate for you to start with for the weightlifting elements of the classes. You will also have the opportunity to try out a sample workout of the day (WOD) during this session. Whether you are looking to access the classes through a membership or pay as you go, you must attend an introductory session before you start taking part in the classes.
