    Visited Bournemouth for couple of days and trained at 180 Strength. Lovely atmosphere and great equipment. I’d recommend visiting the gym if you’re around!

    An amazing gym for powerlifters as it has a full set of comp equipment. I was visiting Bournemouth so trained here as a one off, the vibe was great, so far from your usual commercial gym. You can tell the owners have put a lot of work into creating a great lifting space... only wish there was one closer to where I live!

    180 Strength is a great gym with experienced coaches and really friendly customers. Everyone is welcome regardless of their aims or abilities; whether you just want to get fit, improve your lifts, learn good form with weights or whether you need rehab following injury. I joined just over a year ago with no weights experience at all and quickly decided that I love it!

    I've been training here for nearly two years now and I would not train anywhere else now. After years in corporate gyms 180 is a league of its own. The coaches are all friendly, approachable, highly knowledgeable and athletes in their own right. You couldn't ask for better. Everyone is made to feel welcome no matter what and it has such a great atmosphere with some serious banter at times 😂😂 All in all we are like a family and the support is there everyday.

    I joined 180 Strength about a year ago and use Kevin Yeung as a PT. He was great in guiding me towards my personal fitness goals. He is knowledgeable and dedicated. My kicking averages in rugby increased dramatically as a result- thanks Kevin! The gym has a great vibe about it. All the trainers are friendly and approachable. Owen, Tommy, James and the rest make a great team. I look forward to my gym sessions at 180 Strength!

    All the trainers at 180 Strength have a wealth of experience and the equipment is perfect for anyone looking to get fit and strong. I joined the gym a few months ago because of my passion for powerlifting and thanks to Owen, Jack and especially Kevin my technique has greatly improved. I highly recommend booking PT sessions because they take a close look at your strengths and weaknesses and create a training program that suits your goals. My only regret is that I haven't found this gym earlier.

    This is a top end strength training gym for all. The equipment is second to none, trainers are fantastic and have many world class accolades between them. The other members are friendly and are of all types of skill level. The place is built on an environment of continuous learning, which is really rare. What are you waiting for?!

    180 is a very welcoming gym with a set of vibrant and engaging classes. Each trainer and member of staff will get to know you and be on hand to help at any moment. Fantastic club and would recommend it to anyone who is wanting to get back into training, recovering from injury and wants specialist support or if you wanting to compete in sport and want more sport specific training. This club really caters for all!!

When it comes to changing your diet people can often miss out on a few key details, and fail to see results. It’s not the fault of the plans, but simply, lack of information and knowledge.
