Industrial Strength & Fitness

Industrial Strength & Fitness was born when the owners of Hangar 4 MMA, growing weary of the soulless, barely-staffed gyms that were popping up all over Australia, wanted instead to create a facility where people would feel welcome, no matter what their fitness level, preferred training style, body weight or shape.

What makes us different to all the rest? At ISF, you can cross-train in various styles without needing multiple gym memberships. And we donu2019t charge hundreds of dollars each month and offer just one style of training. Is your goal to get fit and strong or to lose weight? Try our HIIT or Strength & Conditioning classes. Want to learn striking or self-defence? Come down for a martial arts class at Hangar 4 MMA. Want to kick higher or be more flexible in your BJJ ground-game? Try one of our yoga classes. Want to get into arm balances and inversions without years of yoga practice? Give Controlled Strength a shot. Whether your goal is to lift double your body weight, win gold in a BJJ comp, run your first 10K or attempt your first handstand, weu2019ll be there to guide you every step of the way.

I have now been attending the gym for the last two months I wanted to write in and say how much I appreciate the quality of the facilities and the professionalism of the staff who work at the gym. It's a pleasure to use the gym - there is a great atmosphere and the time flies!

I couldn't recommend Erik more highly as a personal training instructor. Since I started personal training in August 2017, with the goal of building up strength and getting back into a regular gym routine, Erik has created fun, motivational and effective programmes for both personal training sessions and training alone. I have achieved my goal of building a gym routine around a busy London lifestyle that keeps me toned, fit, and happy.

Through our personal training sessions I have been introduced to a wide variety of exciting but challenging exercises that are tailored to my specific requirements and goals. Jen is very skilled at continually re-assessing the skill level I am at and translating this into my weekly programme, which means she is always ready with a more difficult variation of any exercise for me to try! The effectiveness and enthusiasm in Jenu2019s approach has meant that I have already recommended Jen as a personal trainer to many of my friends and will continue to do so.

I enjoyed my personal training sessions with Elbert - she motivated me to do more. When I first started the sessions I had backache from sitting down all day. The exercises she gave me to do, improved my back muscles and now it does not ache. Thank you for getting me active again.

Training with Norman is enjoyable and worthwhile. His sessions are carefully planned and he really cares about your progress. He knows more anatomy than me and I'm a doctor.
