As many of your know Precision Movement has been making extensive additions and changes to our little Mayfair studio space courtesy of Grosvenor House Apartments. And though she be little she is (mighty) fierce and versatile. Here are the new changes to the space and how they optimise your workout.
This March we had a custom designed BeaverFit rig installed into the ceiling. This has been the most anticipated change in the studio since we moved in. The rig will be used for pullup/chin up and brachiation training. Also check out the fat GRIPZ for extra intensity without extra load. It has proved super popular so far!
The rig also enables us to use TRx, Crosscore180 and Olympic Rings for suspension and aerial training. Bring on the strength! The rig is 3.5m long meaning we can have someone working on the Kinesis, someone working on the TRx and someone in the weight area quite comfortably.
The matted floorspace has been increased by a third meaning more workable space for people to use and more people using the space at the same time. It also means the floorspace becomes more versatile - we can bring out a barre for a ballet workout or clear the space for kickboxing or a yoga based work-in. We have had some guests using the space to practice their karate katas and MMA moves. We have left the space open for just this purpose because no single person's workout is the same and we want to cater to that as much as possible.
We now have adjustable weights up to 41kg each alongside the original rack of 1-10kg. We have a few olympic bars and weight plates for more traditional strength training as well as weighted medicine balls and powerbags. The original Kinesis cable machine is still installed as well.
The bring out put back system
We have lots of different equipment that can be used in the space - kettlebells, powerbags, battling ropes, agility equipment, olympic bars, medicine balls. We bring out what we need into the space for your specific workout and then put it back to open the space up again. It sounds really obvious but many gyms, particularly hotel and residence gyms are the same space as our little studio but packed full of machines which limits the type of exercise you can do in the space. Training has moved on past machines... there are some uses for machine work but at Precision Movement we are more steered towards challenging your body in different ways. Which is why we think our space is becoming one of the best hotel gyms in London.
The space is being used more than it ever has been and it's being used in many ways, for all kinds of movement, workouts and sports conditioning. If you haven't been down to visit yet, then please do. We'd love to have you!
