Women only & Unisex Strength Training Courses

These courses are both aimed at beginners, and are aimed at educating and coaching, but the instructor will always seek to make the class challenging. There is no difference between unisex and women only courses in terms of content.

“Aimed at beginners, the purpose of this course is to build your confidence in using our free weights equipment. Really take your workout to the next level and reap the fitness benefits of using free weights correctly”.

Olympic Lifting Courses

“Aimed at weightlifters who may be interested in how to Olympic lift like the professionals. Learning these new lifts will certainly enhance your athletic performance”.

Lifeguard team success!

The lifeguard team from The Edge recently competed in the IQL UK & CIMSPA Lifeguard Triathlon,  an event which tests theory, swimming ability and CPR.

A key objective for both IQL UK and CIMSPA is to help raise organisational standards by providing the framework and opportunities for staff to undertake continual professional development and “aim higher” than simple job competence. The triathlon is a fabulous opportunity for lifeguards to showcase their skills and knowledge and reward those who excel at both a local and national level.

In 2014 the team competed and came 20th and this year saw an even better result where they came 15th out of a total of 53 facilities. Full results can be found here.

Gemma Smales (Duty Manager) who leads the lifeguard training said:

“The team have really been engaged and worked hard in training over the past year so its nice to see their efforts pay off”

A massive well done to the team. All swimmers are in save hands here at The Edge
