The Gym Monkeys timetable is mainly based on Les Mills’s classes, Body Pump, Body Attack and GRIT. They also have a couple of unique classes like Broga. Their class times run through the day, from early morning to evening. So whether you are looking for a class before work, during the day or in the evening there will be one for you. on average, the classes last around 45 minutes.

The Class – Body Pump 

This was our first time trying Body Pump, we weren’t sure what the class involved but was looking forward to it. We were put through our paces by a very encouraging trainer, Nicky. She gave the room an upbeat atmosphere and along with the music it gave a great vibe and kept the intensity up all the way through the session. There were also a few moments for her to have a joke or two with us before we carried on with the next part of the class. This class was tough, we are still feeling the after-effects of this class as we write this review, but no doubt it will be rewarding.  The other participants were also encouraging throughout the session, everyone spoke to each other which gave the place a friendly feel to it.

On a whole we really enjoyed visiting Gym Monkeys, the atmosphere in the gym and the class where both great, the facilities and equipment is all well looked after. You really do feel like you are in a placed that is loved by the owners.
