Your Hitsona Banbridge Coaches

Stirling loves crossfit and olympic weightlifting – but don’t worry he understands the needs of our members, so he won’t be roaring and shouting at you, nor will he be having you doing lots of high impacting exercises! Stirling’s favourite sessions style is tabata because he enjoys the short fast intervals.

gym banbridge,best gym banbridge


Joycelyn enjoys cooking, hiking and mini breaks with her friends (now that the kids are well up, I can get away with my friends)! Joycelyn’s favourite session style has to be circuits or a chipper type session because she just loves the buzz and energy during these style of sessions.

We promise you will enjoy the fun of exercise

Working out can be hard to keep up – especially if you aren’t enjoying it. At your Hitsona Banbridge health and fitness studio, we strive to make going to a workout session with us fun and rewarding, so you’re much more likely to stick at your plan. When you’re part of a community and are enjoying the sessions, you can get fit without making it feel like a chore and you won’t fall into the ‘sleeping gym member’ scenario by paying the direct debit for gym membership but never going to a gym class.

Hitsona Banbridge’s owners, Stirling and Jocelyn, put a lot of effort into creating a routine that’s perfect for you and different to that of any gym session. Stirling’s years of experience in high-intensity interval training alongside his and Jocelyn’s HIT Machine training means that you have the perfect combination of expertise to forge a fun exercise routine. Not every Banbridge fitness centre, studio or gym will be able to create an experience that works for you, but that’s exactly what we at Hitsona aim to do.

From 1-to-1 nutrition plans to individual workout reports to follow and with the full support of our dedicated Hitsona coaches, Hitsona Banbridge is all about finding an exercise routine that works for you.

Unmatched Support & Community

Whenever you’re working out in our studio, one of the most important things we consider at Hitsona Banbridge is the likeminded people around you. Searching for the “nearest gym to me” or finding a popular gym membership in Banbridge might entice you into the gym building, but you will not find a community-driven health and fitness centre with Hitsona coaches and fellow happy enthusiastic members.

At Hitsona Banbridge we are dead focused on building a culture of support, well-being and friendship amongst everyone in attendance which is unlike the other gyms. We bring high-intensity, small group interval training with a community which understands your struggles and wants to push through them with you. We use patented HIT Machines and 25-minute sessions to ensure that everyone can get involved, no matter their level of fitness or experience in exercise and working out.

We’re not just like any Banbridge gym either, as we actively strive to help local charities and businesses with their work. This includes having completed fundraisers for the Air Ambulance, MS Society and Cure4Cam. Finding a gym membership Banbridge residents love goes beyond exercising, with the way you bond with the people around you making a big difference.

No Mirrors, No Egos, No Posers, No Exceptions

An epidemic of people filming their own workouts, flexing for mirrors and only paying attention to their own routine is rife in modern gyms. As one of the best fitness studios in Banbridge, Hitsona has a firm policy in place that deals with these kinds of issues.

When working out in your Hitsona Banbridge, you will find we’re not like a local gym, we want you to be able to focus on your own goals, which can feel impossible when someone’s flexing to their camera or staring intently into the mirror. Not only does our no mirrors, no egos, no posers, no exceptions policy stop people from being self-conscious, but it encourages people to support those around them and work together in a way that creates a happy and mentally healthy environment to work in. Together, we can do better than we do alone and how you look isn’t important, it’s how you feel that’s important to us!.

3 Great Locations for Outdoor Exercise in Banbridge

gym banbridge,best gym banbridge

North Down Coastal Path

The first outdoor space to exercise is Loughbrickland Walk on Whyte’s Estate. As part of the Loughbrickland Historic Trail, entry to the estate is completely free and open at all times, so you can get exercising whenever your schedule works. You may need to take care on some days, however, as the Ballyvally Archery Club makes use of the area on some competition days.

gym banbridge,best gym banbridge

Mournes Mountains

Whilst the Whyte’s Estate provides a nice and short walk for those getting reintegrated with outdoor exercise, the Mournes Mountains might be better for those seeking more of a step up. Going up Slieve Muck and Slieve Bearnagh, with a hike along the Doan path, could be the perfect way to spend a nice lazy day. Travel at your own pace and make sure that you have plenty of snacks and water with you, but weather permitting, this is a calm and pleasant day out no matter what.

gym banbridge,best gym banbridge

Murlough Beach

If walking isn’t right for you, there’s no need to worry. Murlough Beach in Newcastle is perfect for outdoor swimming. There are few things that are quite as invigorating as diving headfirst into the Irish Sea and taking on the waves, with swimming being an incredibly liberating sensation. If you’re not one for walking or running or just want to try something new, Murlough Beach is perfect.

Using our unique tools, 1-1 coaching and 25-minute sessions, you’ll see the results you want quickly while staying motivated and confident.
