The Highlights

The class, which was challenging, fun and led by a highly motivating coach, was a highlight of our evaluator’s visit. The individual care and encouragement shown also helped enhance the experience.

What Our Evaluator Had To Say

“The coach paid special attention to me as a first-timer, helping me with more technical movements.”

“The coach was always checking to see if the class was at the right intensity for us.”

“Notable lighting features and a striking color scheme throughout the studio were interesting.”

What to Expect From An AGOGA Session

AGOGA’s philosophy is based on training like an athlete, and that fitness is about more than just “going hard at the gym”. Expert coaches ensure that classes are at the correct intensity and that recovery is more than an afterthought.

Dumbbells, Kettlebells, and TRXs feature prominently in AGOGA's strength sessions, complemented by treadmills, rowing machines and bikes in their more cardiovascular-focused classes.

AGOGA have five different class types, with class types such as Faster, Leaner, Stronger as well as their Signature class and Circuit training sessions.

Classes at AGOGA can be adapted to suit all abilities, although the club does recommend the Strength class as an ideal starting point for those new to functional training.
