What’s up 20 Somethings!
Last Saturday I woke up early and started my day with a workout/grid class at a new gym called Stealth Fitness in Claremont.
The gym is owned by a young man named Esmond, who completed courses in Personal Training, sports massage therapy and nutrition. Esmond spent his time after graduating travelling and working as a personal trainer and massage therapist before opening his own gym. The aim of the gym is to deliver quality service and to ensure that their members see the value in making healthier life choices. The welcoming environment encourages these life choices. Everyone is welcome at Stealth, they ensure that members feel included and looked after at all times. There are on-site bio-kineticists and sports massage therapists in addition to a team of personal trainers.
There is also a coffee shop that serves amazing pre-workout drinks and Nutritech bars for after a heavy workout.
I took a class with an old friend of mine, Sune Esch. Who is a trained dancer- which contributes to a great workout due to her dance history. She understands the way the human body works and provides clear instruction as to how to perform the exercises without endangering your body in anyway.
The class started with a step warm up, which got everyone’s blood flowing in preparation for the grid workout we did afterward.
The class sizes are small, which means that you get individual attention during your workout, which is a great perk when compared to some of the bigger gyms in the area.
I worked up quite the sweat in this class and felt that I got a well rounded workout and a dynamic stretching session at the end. Stretching is very important for me as I feel that a lot of gyms overlook the cool-down stretch at the end of a class, but this was not the case at Stealth.

The gym facilities are good, despite the small size of the gym, it’s perfect for personal training sessions and small group classes. So if that’s the type of workout you’re looking for, Stealth is for you.
On the negative side:
The music was played straight from Youtube and didn’t really fit the “workout” vibe at all. For me, music is a huge part of a workout, if the music isn’t good, I find little motivation to push myself. Of course, this could be rectified by just making a proper workout playlist to play at the gym. I have a great workout playlist I could share with them if they need it.
If you want to try Stealth Fitness out in Stadium on Main, Claremont, they are offering free classes for the rest of October!
