Personalised workout regime in a private gym pod
Sat and Sun: 08.00 – 18.00
They say you’re only one workout away from a good mood at Podfit. With a studio split neatly into three pods, it’s private enough to have full access to the equipment you need but it doesn’t feel isolated. With guidance from their set of personal trainers – between them they cover all areas including specialist populations exercise referral, ante- and post-natal, army strength and conditioning, body building and long-distance running – the idea is that you sign up for anything from three to 12 months to really feel the difference.
As for equipment, they have all the standard pieces you’d expect but with an added bonus: the total gravity machine. It’s every bit as fancy as it sounds. It uses incline body weight resistance and a pulley system to work virtually every body part, and, according to Neil, you’d struggle to find it in any of the mainstream gyms in York.
“Our philosophy is twofold: I’m an ex-PE teacher so we’re based around education. By the time a client leaves us, they understand about the right nutrition for their body and we teach them how to build a strong core and then the muscles around it.”
