This is no ordinary personal trainer training session. In fact it's not a personal trainer training session at all. At Area 5 Fitness in Tameside, Manchester, there is no time to waste. We are not your usual private gym. We are not a boxing centre. We’re not even personal trainers. But by using Muhammad Ali boxing techniques, Mayweather boxing style, speed pads, kettlebells and intensive whole body exercises, we are everything you need to get in the best shape of your life. Area 5 Fitness in Manchester is not a gym. It’s not a personal training thing, we're not here to make friends. Our way of training is definitely not easy and not for everyone. But it is the best way to get yourself feeling and looking ultimate fit without all the bullsh*t.

Super 8

Area 5 Fitness

September 2019 marks eight years in business for Area 5 Fitness. That’s thirteen years for me personally and like every year, more and more Clients coming upto a good ten years training with me (thank you!).

With that being said I feel it’s time I offered a bit more and take the next step.

I’m very pleased to announce Area 5 will be expanding in the next few months and moving into a bigger better setup.

Updates to follow ;)


Suspension training

Area 5 Fitness

I’ll always champion weight training, but a bit of bodyweight training never did any harm and as I’ve recently found out, is an excellent tool to, “compliment” the good old fashioned weight training we regularly do at Area 5.

TRX Suspension Training makes gravity your resistance, so adjusting the level of difficulty is as easy as moving your hands or feet, and progression is limitless.

An innovative efficient piece of kit to help all our Clients, beginner or advanced.

Maintain muscle

Area 5 Fitness

Summer holiday season is here, but there is no reason to worry about losing your hard gained muscle.

A recent study shows that when trained individuals take two weeks off from resistance training, they do not lose muscle. It is possible though that your muscles appear slightly smaller due to a decrease in muscle glycogen (carbs stored in the muscle), but this soon recovers quickly enough once you start training again. I would advise getting a session in if you’re lucky enough to be holidaying for more than three weeks!

Consistently train all year round so you have the luxury of having an enjoyable holiday.

A week or so off from training will actually do you good.


Tips to stay in shape on holiday

Area 5 Fitness

The kids have broken up! It’s time for them all important, well deserved Summer holidays.

Here’s my top ten tips for staying in shape on holiday :

1) Walk to the bar

2) Swim

3) Take the stairs not the elevator

4) Walk to the bar

5) Drink plenty of water

6) Sunbathe

7) Beach volleyball

8) Swim

9) Train consistently all year round so none of this matters and having a week or so off will actually do you good

10) Walk to the bar



Britains wettest June

Area 5 Fitness

With British temperatures recently rivalling the Mediterranean, it may have seemed that summer had firmly arrived. But June is now odds on to be the wettest on record.

We all know how hot Area 5 gets in Summer, so bonus is we won't be nearly passing out in there just yet. It's always nice though, to look out of the fire escape in between sets or rounds on the pads, see that sun in the sky and think how you've just earned an hour or so in the beer garden.

Things do look to be perking up from Wednesday though so fingers crossed. 

My advice if we don't get decent weather this summer...... 

Book a flight to somewhere that does.
