Ever wondered what got the Mountain from Game of Thrones so huge? 

 

Strongman training - a range of unique exercises from log pressing to farmer's carries, which has been proved to lower blood pressure, increase bone strength, burn fat and make you feel like a complete badass. 

 

On top of that, they have a swanky new gym and a whole load of other group and individual classes on offer, catering to different goals and requirements.   

 

Having personally attained a 95kg log press and a 240kg axle deadlift at 78kg bodyweight under their coaching, they most certainly know their stuff.
