Functional Fitness-Open Sessions!

In January we will open our gym for two hours on  Friday nights from 4:00pm to 6:00pm for people to come and try out our Functional Fitness Sessions. It is an open training session for you to come and workout as little or as much as you can within the designated time slot. Cynergy Staff will guide you through the session and help with technique.  Each week a new circuit/challenge will await you. As more people attend, you can compete against others, thereby increasing your workout efforts. Do not worry if you are new to some of the exercises, we will show you how to perform them correctly, and over time, you will improve and build strength as well as increase your cardio fitness.

The first session is a free taster!  For those of you that want a hard workout, but would like someone there to check your form and technique, or perhaps show you how to perform the exercise, then come along and get stuck in! Come alone or bring a friend to increase the friendly competition.

Functional Fitness sessions paid in advance are £50 for a block of 5. Call for more information or check out our website:

New Personal Trainer

Some of you may have already met Chris.  He helped to cover Cat’s clients while she was in Texas.

Chris is qualified as a Personal Trainer, but he specializes in biomechanics. He qualified from a course with 3D People in 2011. Biomechanics is applied to the human body for Rehabilitation & Sports Performance. He can analyse human movement and determine where pain or body weakness is occurs. He then uses this information to generate specific exercises for you to improve your current weakness.

Chris started in the Fitness industry 7 years ago in a Leisure centre in Wallingford. He worked his way up and then qualified as a Personal Trainer & Sports Massage Therapist back in 2009. Once qualified he moved on to Hilton Hotel and worked his way up to being the Health Club Manager until 2011. He then left Hilton to work on cruise ships, and now works with us here at Cynergy.

Chris’ main hobby is football. He plays football in Abingdon on a weekly basis, where one of the teams has won the current league for four seasons running, and he himself has three of the medals.

New Rates In The New Year!

As we head into the new year, we have a few changes taking place, one of which is the increase in our fees.  As of January 1, our hourly rates will increase to £45.  However, if you buy a block of training sessions in advance or are signed up for a particular training program where payment is made in advance, then you will receive a 10% discount with each purchase.

We have maintained the same fees for the past three years, and needed to finally make the change. We hope you understand our need to increase our fees.

Next month: Bootcamp Retreats

Merry Christmas!
