Who are the U-First trainers?

They have over 10 years of training experience between them and have worked with all manner of clients. They love helping people to become the best versions of themselves and are on a mission to get the UK fit and healthy!

Where do training sessions take place?

Training sessions take place at Buile Hill Park, Salford. We train on the grass in the Spring and the Summer and we train on the basketball courts in the Autumn and the Winter. During the Winter months we floodlight the courts. 1-2-1 private sessions take place in our private PT studio in Salford.

Do you offer extras such as 1-2-1 personal training sessions?

 Yes! We offer 1-2-1 personal training sessions alongside your U-First membership. All U-First members can access and book 1-2-1 personal training sessions with either Antony or Sarah. We cater for 1-2-1 sessions in a gym environment or from the comfort of your own home! We highly recommend a block booking of extra personal training sessions if you’d like to see improved or quicker results or if you’d like some extra coaching on form and technique to help you excel further in the bootcamp training sessions. 

What happens to my membership if I go on holiday?

As U-First Fitness Society is a monthly subscription service you will always have access to workouts you can easily do at home, poolside, in your hotel room, basically anywhere in the world! Providing we have at least 48 hours notice we will provide you with quick and effective workouts you can do to make sure your progress doesn’t falter whilst you’re away. You will still receive your monthly progress check in, and we can be flexible if your check in falls whilst you’re away. Unfortunately we don’t accept part payments for any weeks in a month when you’re unable to attend, however if you are planning to be away for the whole 4 weeks we can ‘freeze’ your membership until you return. If your membership is frozen you will not be eligible for your monthly progress check in that month, but you will still have access to the private members only Facebook group.

How many people are in each session?

Each training group has a maximum of 24 people per session. We keep a cap on each group to ensure we are providing every single member with quality coaching and attention at all times.

Can I just come to the training sessions without the monthly progress check ins?

Yes you can certainly just join us on the training sessions and not take part in the monthly progress check ins, however as the check ins are a part of your monthly subscription fee we highly recommend you make the most of them, as they are key in keeping you accountable and ensuring you reach your health and fitness goals. If you decide that you just want to come to the training sessions the monthly fee will remain the same.
