There are hundreds of fitness classes prepared to tell you how much they’ll make you hurt, sweat or smile, but which ones will actually ensure results? MF rounds up the best for any goal



Spartan Performance, Consett

Deadlift. Squat. Press. Row. Learning good technique for the basic barbell lifts is an investment that will pay off for the rest of your fitness career, and there aren’t many better teachers than Spartan Performance, run by Natural Strongman Champ Jack Lovett. Chalk up, get strong and learn the basic biomechanics of moves every gym-goer should know.

BENEFITS: absolute strength, technique, confidence on the gym floor

DIFFICULTY: Rated 5 out of 5 stars


The Manor, London

Concrete. Metal. Sweat. OK, the Manor’s signature gym session sounds a tiny bit like prison, but then it’s designed to get trainees comfortable with the uncomfortable, pushing its participants with a blend of sled-pushing, tyre-fipping and load-carrying that’s designed to be manageable – if brutally difficult – for everyone.

BENEFITS: grit, strength-endurance, athleticism

DIFFICULTY RATING: Rated 5 out of 5 stars


Hench, Belfast

With a coaching team experienced in powerlifting, you'd expect this Belfast-based gym to prioritise big lifts – and they're clearly good at it, with everyone from Hafthor Bjornsson and deadlift legend Benedikt Magnusson dropping in to teach or train. This session aims to improve grip, core and postural strength through a variety of loaded carries, sled drags and pushes, and animal movements.

BENEFITS: muscle, camaraderie
