Everyone can do it. We program five pumping workouts made up of creative movements using simple equipment. Think sports day. But for adults.
Weight standards for men/women:
Bumper plate - 20kg/10kg
Dumbbell - 20kg/12.5kg
Kettlebell - 20kg/12kg
Workouts may also include bodyweight, CV machines such as rowers, ski ergs, and bikes, as well as other equipment but will not exceed the weights above.
Heavier kit such as sandbags may be used but workouts will allow athletes to work together to lift them.
READY TO TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE?
YOU ASKED, WE LISTENED!
We're very proud to be bringing Battle Cancer to Oriam after Scotland consistently topped the list of requested Battle Cancer locations. You asked, we listened!
Gyms in Scotland have been our furthest travellers, battling cancer with us in Manchester, London, Dublin, and Berlin, so we can't wait to come to you!
We also run one of our most successful Battle Cancer Programs at Go Train East Rocks in Dunbar, so Scotland will be a special event for us.
