How We Help
Our group training system
Designed for maximum fat loss and to increase your fitness, our group training is fun, inclusive and whilst we’ll push you hard, we encourage you to work at your own pace.
Safe, fun, challenging
We find the appropriate level where we can push you whilst coaching you to stay safe and injury free. You’ll master kettle bells, battle ropes, dumbbells, you’ll pull sleds, ski, row and bike. You’ll have access to our private gym complete with all the kit you need to crush fitness goals and burn body fat.
It's not all high fives and HIIT training
Ok we’re lying, it pretty much is. But what makes our group training different is we cap the numbers so we can make sure your form is on the money and we can push you to progress safely every week.

What Our Customers Say
“You fixed a bad knee I’ve had for 20 years since a tragi-comic disco dancing accident. I’m probably running faster than I ever have, I’ve got muscles I’ve never noticed before. Perhaps most of all I really enjoy the gym and a coupe of hours a week with Storm, which is weird. Bad back much much better. And none of this has been difficult.”
“Storm was recommended from a fellow runner, and the facilities were exactly what I was looking for – a space that was unlikely to get too busy, and a space that felt fairly private. Within a month or two. Key movement patterns were becoming easier and my body was changing.”
“I wanted to improve my running, particularly in terms of speed, with the aim of breaking 90 mins for a half marathon. Four months in, I ran the Sunderland half marathon in 88 mins. My times have improved consistently since then and on reduced mileages.”
“Storms reputation is very good, I was recommended to storm by my yoga teacher, who I trust implicitly. I was also very impressed with their professionalism and knowledge. Being in the industry myself and a retired scientist I know what I am looking for in a trainer. I have never been as strong or healthy as I am now and I love it! I’m 50+ so it’s a great feeling!”
“I was quite fit but attending the same gym for years and making little progress. I started working with Storm and Activate Physio, I can’t recommend them highly enough, they are both excellent. I feel great, I’m stronger with more muscle bulk and I’m thinner too.”
“I had a very low level of fitness, no specific health problems but a friend recommended Storm, I feel stronger now and it’s made me take up different forms of exercise, I now do Pilates and yoga in addition to my PT sessions.”
“I had long term lower back pain I was fit but at my wits end with lower back pain. 6 months on my back pain has gone and I feel fitter and stronger then ever.”
“Due to my poor knees, I was afraid to get back to the gym to train for my fitness and dance career, but fortunately I have found this awesome gym with the best coach! Not only has my fitness improved tremendously, but my mind is also at ease! knowing that my knees are being rehabilitated along with being stronger than ever before, I couldn’t be happier”
“I wanted to change my lifestyle and change my focus. Coming to Storm was the best decision I could of made. The word ‘gym’ or ‘fitness’ doesn’t come close to what you experience at Storm. You’re training physically and mentally and the dedication from everyone is amazing. The atmosphere is so welcoming and you feel part of the storm family straight away. If I could give a 6th star I would!!!!”
“Have recently started with storm fitness and I have ro say this is a top class facility with friendly approachable coaches. What I like about this gym is it specialises in personal training and it is a lovely place to train and has all the equipment you need. Spencer and the team are genuine friendly warm coaches who always greet with a smile.”
