Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

School of Strength is about you. You might have some questions and that's OK. Here are some answers to our more regular queries. If you want to have a chat, please contact us, we are always happy for a chin wag. All questions are good questions.


Is SOS right for me?

Well I could say yes, but I don't want to say yes just to get people in.  The fact is that the School is a "By Appointment Only" gym.  You just can't rock in off the street and "do a sesh" ("do a session" in gym lingo).  We think of coming to the School as going to pay someone you care about a visit.  You schedule a time with them.  You schedule a time for you to come to the School.  After all, if you can't look after yourself, how can you give advice and help others.  So, if you want to just wander in and a session, then the School is not for you.  However, if you want to get better at moving, understand the importance of booking time slots, and want to get stronger, fitter and faster, and have some fun and giggle, then the School is definitely for you.

All our group sessions have no more than 6 students.  Why?  Because as a coach, I like to be able to keep an eye on what everyone is doing.  Simply, I like to coach.

There is no putting on loud music.  There is no instructor up the front telling you "work harder" "give it your best" while you only do half the movements, or at worst, do them half arsed.  We are a unique organisation.

That's why before your first appointment is booked, we sit down for a one on one chat over coffee (or tea, or hot chocolate, or even a cold drink).  We want to find out about you.  What your goals are.  We want to find what makes you tick.


What should I wear to SOS?

Nobody cares what you wear at SOS, as long as it is sensible and fit for purpose. Ridiculous socks are encouraged.  We may even have a "Sock Challenge"!  Don't know what a sock challenge is?  Wear your most outrageous pair of socks, and we will let the followers decide who wins 😉


Am I too old?

Too old?  Age is just a number.  Some people are old at 32, while others are young at 82.  Don't let your Date of Birth dictate what you can do.  Our youngest client is 10, while our oldest is 82.  If you want to improve your quality of life, become more active, and enjoy the world around you, then get in touch.
