Teenagers who strength train can run faster, jump higher and perform beyond their peers. At FSM we have a specific program to develop the strength in teenagers so they develop quicker, have better mental health and are less likely to get injured.

Adults & Athletes

Progress to higher intensity strength training so you are stronger, fitter and getting a return in your strength training program.
Maybe you are simply looking to get stronger for the very best health

Or maybe you want to maximise performance in your sport? Strength is the game changing component that moves you from amateur to pro so you have the x-factor and out-perform every time. 


Muscle deterioration in both strength and mass as we age is far too common.
In this program, we prevent that from occurring by enhancing strength through resistance training. This method has been shown to increase a patient’s capacity, raise their independence and prevent many disease and joint concerns such as arthritis.
