We tend to find that other cross-training gyms throw you straight into the power phase of training. Although this is the intense and fun phase of training, it is also the phase, you are most susceptible to injuries. We believe that you need prior conditioning, focussing on correcting muscle imbalances working on flexibility and stability and gaining strength through good movement patterns. This will provide you with an improved axis of rotation through each joint, where the body operates more efficiently. This is where we believe that you will gain greater benefits from your power phase and be at less risk of injury.
BattleFit caters for all types of people ranging from sedentary folk, corporates, housewives, models, athletes as well as those individuals seeking injury rehabilitation.
Classes are 45-50mins. The intensity of the classes will make you feel fulfilled and craving more. Go flat out and get the benefits of one or go steady and double up for more endurance.

Battlefit is a full-on functional training facility, with a high focus on results. Take part in our awesome variety of fun & challenging classes. You also can do your own training and have access to Personal Trainers.
Functional Training is different to conventional isolated training as it requires the individual to work in multiple planes (Frontal, Saggital, Transverse) while using multiple joints as well as multiple muscle groups in order to perform selected movements. Functional Training often has a more realistic carry over to everyday activities as well as sport. Functional Training forms the backbone to sport specific/related training as well as encourages improved postural alignment and core stability. While isolated training does have its place in all gym environments, a creative and periodized approach to exercise type and selection is encouraged at BattleFit.
Kettlebells also known as the Giraya have been around for centuries. They resemble an age-old cast iron cannonball with a handle. Training with a kettlebells offers various physical benefits such as cardiovascular, strength and flexibility improvements. Contrary to traditional dumbbells, instead of having the weight centered in your hand, kettlebells require the individual to work with displaced weight, which requires the individual to rely greatly on often unused stabilizing/secondary muscles.
A wide variety of ballistic, rotational and stability movements are used when working with kettlebells.
A fantastic tool to scorch fat and build muscle.
High-Intensity Interval Training is a style/mode of training that is popular and favorable as it combines high-Intensity periods of training with relative intervals of recovery. Usually, creative programs that combine resistance training as well as aerobic conditioning ensure that the individual gets fit fast while encouraging the body to enter the fat burning zone keeping those unwanted Kilo’s off.
Everyone’s body is different. Various factors play a role in determining whether you see results and in what time frame these results will occur. Body Type, Training Program (Frequency/Intensity/Volume) and diet all play major roles in determining whether one will see results. Usually, within 3 months bodily transformations are visible. A 12-week training program is always a realistic and viable place to start.
