What makes Grow different?

From our experience, we know that success is achieved through personal attention, expert knowledge and consistency. We created Grow to offer people the same care and focus of a one-to-one session but with the added bonus of an energetic group setting. Our expert trainers have carefully crafted intelligent, efficient and fun workouts that they’ll motivate you to complete with the best technique possible.

Can I have a copy of your timetable?

Timetables

Do you offer monthly memberships?

At Grow we offer ultimate flexibility with our Pay As You Grow options as well as Monthly Subscriptions which can be cancelled at anytime.

Is there a cancellation policy?

If you need to cancel a class please do so by cancelling before 5PM the day before your class. If you fail to cancel before 5PM the day before your class you will lose your class credit. If you're on an intro offer, you will be charged a £10 fee for late cancellation. If you book the class and do not show you will be charged a no show fee of £10 to your card on file.

What do I need to wear / bring with me?

You can wear whatever you like, as long as it’s comfortable and lets you move! You will need trainers, though. Please bring a water bottle, too (we are trying our best to go plastic-free, so don’t we sell plastic bottles. We have a water tap where you can refill your own bottle and will soon have reusable Grow bottles available for purchase!)

Do you have changing rooms and showers, and do you provide towels?

We do! We have showers and changing rooms that we ensure are dazzlingly clean at all times. On top of this we provide big fluffy bath towels to go with them. We also provide sweat towels for the classes themselves because trust us, you’re gonna need ‘em!

Our changing rooms are also equipped with hairdryers, straighteners, hairbrushes and other bits and bobs like deodorant, moisturiser, shampoo, etc. We also provide bags for your sweaty gym gear!

Do you provide lockers?

Lockers are available (and free of charge) so you can store your kit during the class. We also have valuables lockers for the communal areas.

Can I bring my children with me?

Unfortunately, we just don’t have the room to have little ones waiting in the reception area or anywhere else.

I need to stay hydrated - do you provide water?

We are trying our best to do our bit for the environment and go plastic-free, so don’t we sell plastic bottles. We do provide a water tap where you can refill your own bottle and are in the process of getting stylish reusable bottles that will be available for purchase. Watch this space!

Can I look around?

Please do! You’re more than welcome to pop in and we’ll show you around. If our instructors are in-between classes, we’ll introduce you. If they are taking a class, you’ll get a chance to see them in action.

What can I expect from one of your classes?

In short, the workout is a HIIT class interspersed with short intervals on the water rower. The power used on the water rower improves cardiovascular endurance and is sure to make you sweat while the combination of weighted and body-weight exercises increase muscle tone and strength. Expect 45 minutes of fun, sweat-inducing and body-sculpting interval training, guaranteed to help you grow.

Why rowing?

Rowing is the ultimate full-body workout. A low impact, high intensity exercise for everybody and anybody. It works all the muscles of the body together, increases flexibility and conditions the body without straining.

I've never rowed before. Does this matter?

No way! Our expertly trained instructors are equipped to train both seasoned rowers and complete novices at the same time. You’re safe in our hands!

I haven't worked out in awhile. Will it be too much for me?

The great thing about our classes is that you can go at your own pace. You can increase the weights or row harder and faster as you feel ready. Our PTs will be there to guide you!

Our classes are all-embracing and we welcome one and all to our studio. However, if you have any pre-existing conditions or concerns, we would advise that you speak to your GP before attending, just to put your mind at ease.

Do you offer a free trial?

Our intro offer gives you a whole week of unlimited classes for just £30!

Can I work out if I'm pregnant?

We would recommend that you check with your doctor before attending our classes.

Sometimes I struggle to leave work on time, will I still get in if I’m a little late?

We're focused on starting classes on time for a number of reasons. Keeping the studio flowing smoothly matters to us but most of all, we've specially designed our classes to warm you up ready to work out. If you miss this section, not only is your workout likely to be less effective, but you also put yourself at greater risk of injury. For this reason, we operate a strict no late entry policy.

We recommend you arrive 10 minutes before the class start time.

Should I eat beforehand?

You need to make sure you’ve got enough energy to keep you going throughout the class, but make sure you’re not too full to train – that’s never fun!

It is generally recommended to eat around 300 calories, 30 – 60 minutes before a class. Check out our blog for some snack ideas!

What happens if I lose something at your studio?

We check our facilities after every class, so if we find something that's been left behind, we should be able to reunite it with its owner ASAP! If we can't track down its owner and its not claimed, lost property will be donated to charity after 7 days.

How do I row correctly?

Don't worry. We have you covered. The rowing technique will be demonstrated by our instructors at the start of every class. We have also written a blog that you can read prior to turning up to Grow so you can learn the basics prior to your first class.

Rowing Technique

I'm booked in! What do I do next?

We recommend arriving 10 minutes before the class start time so that you can get settled and meet the team. We’ll sign you in, show you around and make sure you’re comfortable and ready for a great workout!

I'm hungry - do you sell post-workout snacks?

A post-work out snack is essential to replenish the stores that have been depleted during your training session. Between 30-60 minutes after exercise is when your body is most receptive to receiving and absorbing nutrients. Prioritise protein to rebuild the muscle that has been broken down during your training. We have Bounce energy balls available for purchase at reception that will give you a healthy balance of protein, fat and carbs to maximise your workout gains. If you’re hungry for a meal then we’d be happy to give you some recommendations of our favourite spots in the area!

Do I need to create an account?

Yes, but we’ve made sure that the process is as quick and easy as possible! Simply head over to our sign up page, enter your details and you’ll be ready to go!

Do you offer a student discount?

Yes, we offer a 10% discount for students with valid ID on our Pay As You Grow credits.

Can I book private classes for groups or corporate events?

Absolutely! If you email us at hello@growfitness.co.uk or give us a call on +44 (0) 203 904 4459, we’d love to discuss how we can best cater for your group.
