What our members say

I have been following a strength and weightlifting programme that has been rewarding and would recommend to anyone wishing to pursue similar training. The coach is motivating, has a breadth of technical knowledge, and gives useful detailed feedback. The variety of movements and drills is fun and challenging which breaks up the tedium of the classically long, repetitive strength sets. I’m delighted with the results so far having gone from dreading the snatch to looking forward to snatching every week.

I got my first Bar Muscle Up with Big Red Training. I was so shocked as I had wanted this move for so long! I gave up trying. Coach introduced all the drills to me, took me back to basics, and with some hard work I achieved this goal. I am currently following the performance level programme online as I moved my life abroad. The programming never arrives late, even with the time difference. I have recently PB’d my snatch, which I have been working very hard on. I love how everything I do is performed with technical competency and focus.

Coach Sam truly cares about the clients and that is obvious during every training session. I feel valued and know that he is committed to helping me improve and achieve. There is always the right balance between being challenging and understanding/supportive. Always more than willing to give time to offer advice on mobility, rehab and exercises, coach genuinely wants you to succeed. If you want to get stronger, feel fitter and move better, Sam is your man.
