A Perfect Storm - Total Balance at Balance Festival

It's been a long time people.  Sorry for the silence. We've been working on growing the EQ family and brand.  We're nearly there on studio 2 and we'll hopefully have some news for you very soon.  

Now, We've got loads of new followers through our social media so I'll run you through the EQ story and you'll understand why at Balance the perfect storm came together to make three very memorable days.

We started Equilibrium 3 years ago with the dream of helping people realise their potential.  That doesn't mean getting a six pack, you ask for that at EQ you'll be very kindly asked to vacate the premises, it means finding balance in our 5 elements of fitness STRENGTH, SPEED, ENDURANCE, FLEXIBILITY, MIND.  It means achieving movements and developing abilities you never thought possible.  We've fulfilled that dream over and over with our clients but it can't stop there.  Jay and I have developed a class concept that will change the way fitness is approached in London but we just need the right property and it's coming...

We come from a family of fitness with my Father being ex Mr Wales and a blackbelt in Karate. My Mother, a fitness freak who still teaches 5 times a week now, and my Step-Father Graham, a former 4-time World Kickboxing Champion and boxing coach.  Imagine growing up watching these three awesome humans developing their craft, watching them training and coaching classes and individuals for our entire lives. The gift they have given us is priceless and extremely unique.  Come and do a class, you'll witness the skills they've handed down. 

My favourite Denzel Washington quote;

"Hard Work...WORKS."

That's what Jay and I have done with our business.  I've clocked up 11 years in personal training and Jay 6 years.  We eat, sleep and bleed EQ.  In London we are the masters of TRX.  That's self-proclaimed by the way.  When you know, you know.  I've now hit over 20,000 hours teaching and training my own body on the TRX.  The way we teach the famous black and yellow strap is truly original.  We took our Pilates experience, our weight training knowledge, our kickboxing flow, our footballing skill, and made our own TRX way.  Our faith in ourselves has been replicated by TRX who asked us to be their headline trainers at Balance Festival.  And here we find our perfect storm...

...two brothers, two handles, two collaborators, one festival.  I'm so proud of what we did.  When we'd finished, 15.000 people had walked passed and seen us, 450 people had experienced our teaching style on the TRX mostly for the first time and left with huge smiles.  We taught twenty three 30 minute classes with only 30mins break in between each class for 3 days straight.  At the end of each day I felt two things. The first is that it felt like I'd done 12 rounds with Tyson and the ref had allowed him to kick too.  Secondly, an immense feeling that everything we'd learned, trained, created up until that point was affirmed.  In an EQ class they're regulars.  At Balance they were newbees, beginners who wanted to try something new.  We delivered near perfect classes, technical, flowing, fun, tough in the right places and always ALWAYS seeing every individual in the class as one person not as part of a collective.  Looking back at the videos and pictures it makes me swell with pride.  We rocked it.  

BUT people we're not done there.  You. Just. Wait....

The new class concept is even better than our Total Body TRX class in it's current format.  It is the most complete class concept.  You will not have done anything like this.  You're going to love it so much that'll ask if you can sleep in the studio to get to the next mornings class.  You have to remember that Jay and I have a real WHY.  We want to make money like the rest of the other boutique classes but essentially we want to see YOU become confident, happy and strong.  Even if you're the uncoordinated , knock kneed, flat-footed, vertigo person, we will SEE you, take you in as one of our own and help you get to where you want to be.  If you're incredibly fit and every time you go to a fitness class it feels easy we'll SEE you and take it up a notch for you, you will progress those extra %'s that you're fighting for.

We'll be seeing you...
