Contact Educogym today!


 All Educogym® Personal Trainers individualise your exercise program for your needs.



If you have read the science behind the Educogym® you will understand the importance of maintaining or increasing muscle. It makes sense that exercise is a part of this system to activate the muscles in the body. However, you may not know that many types of exercise can be catabolic – i.e. they causes muscle loss. Our Personal Trainers can help you sculpt the body of your dreams!


There are many reasons why it is so easy to make the Educogym® system part of your lifestyle. Firstly it only takes 20 minutes, a few times a week; therefore it is much easier to stay focused and avoid boredom. Secondly, armed with the training in focus and concentration, you can experience a mental workout that keeps your mind clear throughout. Thirdly, the intense nature of the exercise produces endorphins in the brain, giving you that feel-good factor. This all leads to a workout which is both enjoyable and leaves you feeling invigorated, ready to take on the world! Finally, our Personal Trainers supervise your every move and constantly motivate and encourage all clients to get the best out of their workouts.
