We offer group training sessions with highly qualified personal trainers. Our programming is designed by an internationally renowned strength and conditioning coach, giving our members access to the best programming available on the fitness market.

We cater for any fitness level and we use bespoke heart rate technology to allow us to do this. The vibe in our studio is amazing and we have a lot of fun!

In health and fitness things are changing at lightning speed, there’s always something new or a better way of doing things. At BFT Leicester we have an elite team that work on our programming and it is updated and improved every 10 weeks to maximize results.

What are the main benefits compared to a traditional gym?

We get results! In our first 8 week challenge, 68 clients lost 73kg of fat and gained 23kg of muscle. In total across 3 of our 8 week challenges we have lost a whopping 338kg of fat and gained a massive 152kg of muscle.

Accountability is huge in our environment, you are paying us and we care! We prescribe minimum class attendance of 3-4 a week. We know that this delivers results. If we don’t see you in the studio for a while we reach out to you for a check in.

All of our classes are 50 minutes long, it’s designed to give you the most efficient workout possible. All you have to do is show up!

Our coaches are not just your average personal trainers, they are level 4 strength and conditioning qualified, BFT invests in their development to ensure that our members have the best experience.

Your next 8 week challenge starts in February, why should people sign up?

We have the most exclusive offer for our first 8 week challenge of 2024 that guarantees results or you get your money back! That’s a huge incentive for someone to give it a go.

What has been your highlight since launching the gym?

Our community and the impact that we have had on all aspects of their lives. It is truly humbling when we get feedback on how much we have helped our members improve their health, mindsets and other aspects of their day to day lives. We are changing the way people think about health and fitness, our members now prioritize their training schedules because they know they get the results that want, and it’s beautiful to experience. This is how we should approach our health and fitness.

Describe a typical BFT class for us?

We have 14 different programs, ranging from pure strength classes to high intensity cardio based classes. We even have a class called Balanced that will help you to build all of the smaller muscles in your body that people don’t usually work on. All classes have different formats, layouts, rep and set ranges, timings and appropriate heart rate zones.

What would you say to someone who is taking their firsts steps on their fitness journey?
