The Strength & Conditioning Institute

1-7 Crabapple Rd, Tonbridge TN9 1FW, UK – 01732 350366

My husband (who is no spring chicken but has always been active and still enjoys those naughty things in life) a few months ago signed up for the 8 week transformation. From the start he couldn’t have been happier with the facilities, the attention to detail in his individual program and the ongoing support that he received to achieve his goal. From a graduated fitness process, to specific meal plans focused on his own needs to maintain and progress his road cycling the changes were evident in his physique, energy levels and stamina. Achieving and surpassing his initial goals came sooner than expected within the program enabling him to reach a higher level of fitness. The flip side is the impact that it has had on the rest of the family, translating into a shared knowledge and enjoyment of exercise together. The Strength and Conditioning Institute is exactly what it says on the tin, a lifestyle, Mental and physical self improvement facilitator. If only we could all have this SCI shared vision... what a world it would be.

I recently signed up to the 8 week transformation programme and cannot speak more highly of my trainer, Claire or the gym facilities. The equipment at the SCI Institute is far superior to any of the top gyms in London. I now love going to the gym, which I never thought possible! Its nice to train with people who are so passionate about your wellbeing, fitness and nutrition. Claire is without doubt the best personal trainer I have ever worked with and I have already signed up for more personal training with her, I never want it to end. I feel stronger, healthier and have never had so much energy, which is a vast difference from where I started.

PureGym Tonbridge Now Open

2-12 Avebury Ave, Tonbridge TN9 1TF, UK – 0344 477 0005

A great gym that is not to busy. A friend and I visited on day passes and felt very welcome by staff and members. Unlike a lot of gyms it does not feel overly clicky or testosterone fueled. Equipment choice was good with a good weigh area. The only downfall was the limited showers and changing room facilities Which when one was being cleaned caused ques however they were spotless.

Nice, clean, modern gym that is far better value than all other local gyms. Only thing stopping it getting five stars is the size of the gym - it can get very busy.

Angel Centre

Good choice of classes and facilities are also good. If you are over a certain age there are classes designed more for you in mind but not as many as there were so be aware. Check and maybe talk with their team, some of whom are dedicated to the older age group.

Really good gym with lots of friendly staff and excellent excersise classes.
