Unicorn Strength Castle Douglas have the great honour of being based at the fantastic athletic development centre at The Stewartry Rugby Club.
We offer both Group fitness, coach led classes and Personal Training. Owned and ran by Anne Halliday and Steve Wilson.
It is perfect for any ability.
It is constantly varied.
And it is inclusive.
If you get bored easily.
If you don’t know what to do in the gym.
If you don’t know where to start.
If you are scared of lifting weights incorrectly.
If you lack personal motivation.
If you are ambitious.
If you want to find out what you are capable of.
If you would like to surround yourself with like minded people.
Then this is your answer.
We are a diverse cross section of the local population with ages ranging from eighteen to eighty (but we don’t limit you there, you never get too old for us).
There are no barriers or prerequisites to coming in and getting started. We want you here. We want to be part of your journey. We want to help you and support you. Encourage you and laugh with you.
We will teach you how to lift weights safely, how to support your health through good food choices, how to get stronger and fitter.
We will always believe everything is possible for you and will back you one hundred percent.
Each class will be different; we do a huge variety of movements and use all kinds of equipment.
We start off with an explanation of that days objective and what you will be doing during your class.
The coach then takes you through a warm up which will include covering any skills or movements required in the workout.
During the workout the Coach will keep an eye on you and make sure you are not doing anything that could lead to injury.
You get fitter and stronger.
You go home looking forward to your next class!
We can scale everything to a level that will be suitable for your current abilities.
Let’s take a pull up as an example. We never expect anyone who comes to class to be able to do a chin over bar pull up when they first show up. Some can. Not many. We can easily scale this to negative pull ups (jump up, lower down).Or to feet on floor with a low bar (hold bar, lean back, pull yourself towards bar).
Every thing is scalable and progressive.
And you do not HAVE to run ever!
You can check out the Unicorn Strength CD classes timetable and just show up to a class (5 minutes early if possible to fill out a form).
Or if drop us message through the website or our social media.
One to one training is in very high demand and spaces are limited.
If you are keen to go down this route get in touch as soon as possible to get booked in or added to the waiting list if we are at capacity.
