Bored with the same old routine of skulking to the gym after a busy day at work, only to attempt the usual slow plod on the treadmill in an effort to get that beach bod for summer? Why not consider strongman training as a much smarter alternative?
Strongman training is synonymous with barrel chested, chalk dusted, Eastern European men who shout a lot, but very few people know the benefits of modified strongman training as the ultimate tool for fat loss and hypertrophy. Due to the high demand on your various different energy systems when performing these staple strongman movements, your body quickly shifts gear to fat burning mode as a way to generate more energy during these workouts.
The multi-plane force production demands of strongman training whilst trying to manipulate the awkwardly shaped objects stresses the body in a way many have never experienced before. If you’re serious about attaining the physique you are striving for, then you should come and check out City Strongman.
Collectively proven in the industry for over 15 years, the City Strongman team are the perfect coaches to help you realise your potential. With experience not just in the health and fitness industry, but also in professional sport for some 12 years the City Strongman team will not fail to help you achieve your personal goals – with plenty of fun thrown in for good measure.
Modified Strongman Training developed from our use of strongman training to condition our rugby players and athletes that we work with. It encompasses many of the disciplines used in Competitive Strongman which are adapted to work with a broader population group. A typical session could see you flipping tyres, pressing logs, pushing or dragging weighted sleds and tyres, or carrying farmers walks. There are no strict rules, set moves, choreographed systems, or spiritual ideologies behind it. Simply turn up prepared to push yourself physically and mentally and the rest takes care of itself.
Modified Strongman addresses just about every aspect of physical conditioning and can be adapted to suit any age, shape, or size or to address any desired physical outcome. It really is that versatile and people are often surprised at overall level of conditioning it develops.
Unlike the typical gym environment where everything is set up to make things easier, Modified Strongman challenges everything from your grip strength to your cardiovascular health. It also builds strength, both physical and mental, and the high lactate levels in the session make it one of the most effective ways to lose body fat without compromising muscle.

God knows I love a good exercise trend... But this is way more than that. A real challenge at every class, plenty of team spirit, and fun getting covered in mud / dust depending on the weather. No pity on the girls - just a shut up and get on with it attitude. #hooked
