Loving Strength class! Michelle is so encouraging in helping achieving your fitness goals. The class members are really friendly and encouraging as well! I would recommend this gym to everyone!


I’ve been a member of so many gyms, however never one like this. Absolutely loving the place and the classes. Great variety and a super atmosphere. Michelle is great at motivating you and everyone is so friendly. Great vibe to the place!


Fantastic gym and instructors that are genuinely passionate about their job and helping people become healthier, fitter and stronger. Very knowledgeable and welcoming. Classes are varied and would suit all levels. Love it!


I’ve been doing Semi-Private training sessions with Michelle since January. I’ve absolutely loved every session and have seen a massive improvement in my running times and technique. She is hugely knowledgeable and motivational and I can’t recommend her and BetterU enough. Do it!


Great workout this morning at UStrength. Great group of people to work out with and lots of motivation from Michelle and everyone working out. What a way to start the day. Looking forward to next weeks classes. On my way to a better me.
