Commando Temple Strongwoman
Strongwoman Training Commando Temple Gym Greenwich London


Strongwoman Training Classes at London’s Commando Temple with resident Coach & Personal Trainer, Mayyah Shalchi.

We’ll have you laughing as you lift in these 90-minute sessions. Employing exercises and apparatus from the sport of strongwoman, we work with your natural strength to help you realise your physical and mental potential to reveal the strongwoman within. You’ll work as a team flipping tyres, carrying loaded sandbags around the block and challenging yourselves, and each other, every Wednesday.

Strongwoman training is one of the fastest growing female sports in the UK and it’s not hard to see why. Whether you consider yourself strong or not, strong woman training is extremely satisfying and hugely empowering. We work with a broad range of weights and apparatus, and tailor every class and exercise to the experience and ability of those present to ensure a safe and friendly environment.

At The Commando Temple Gym, the women get as much respect as the men and there is a great community of strongwomen who train together and socialise regularly, some are serious athletes competing in local and national strongwoman events, others are strong minded females looking to get in the best shape of their lives.

We encourage each other to push boundaries, building an atmosphere of outstanding camaraderie and community in the process. You’ll train with newcomers as well as regular competitors from around the country and the wider Temple community is always willing to get involved and show their support.

For the ultimate test of team spirit and inner strength, there’s no better class for women that want to get stronger than The Commando Temple Strongwoman class.
