A: The actual workout itself will last approximately 45 minutes on average (every workout is different so exact times will vary). This includes a 10-15 minute warm up, followed by a 20-40 minute workout.
Please allow an hour over all, to take into account time for instruction/putting away equipment after the session etc.
A: We recommend wearing multiple layers in order to deal with the unpredictable Manchester weather!
You will get very warm during the actual workout, but you may get cold beforehand or afterwards.
You may also want to consider wearing a pair of sports gloves, as at times you will have to put your hands on the floor which may be cold/wet/rough. We also recommend thin, flat soled, minimalist trainers such as vivobarefoot shoes.
A water bottle and sweat towel may also be a good idea.
A: If you want to try a session before you sign up to the direct debit, you can pay £10 for a single session, which we will refund to you in full when you sign up to one of our membership packages within the following 24 hours.
To book your trial session please use our Trial Session Request Form.
A: Please check our Location and Class Times page
A: There is a small car park in the park (on Nell Lane by the site office – See our Location page for a Map), however spaces are limited. There is also parking on the streets nearby, or why not cycle!
A: Please check our Prices and Membership page
A: No, you may both come individually as well as together if you have different schedules.
A: If possible we prefer that you pick a day so that we can manage expected numbers. If however from time to time you need to swap, we should be able to make arrangements.
A: No. We operate a rolling 30 day contract, with no long tie ins. We are confident that you will enjoy the sessions and get results, so we have no need to tie you in! To cancel, you simply have to give 30 days notice to the direct debit company.
A: If you are going on holiday for a month or so, we can pause your membership, and restart it when you return (note we require 30 days notice to do so).
Q: Is your class a bootcamp?
No, we are not a military fitness style class. All our instructors are qualified and experienced personal trainers. We place an emphasis on safe, effective, efficient and fun workouts. Though our sessions may be challenging, we do not “beast” people, and ensure that everyone works out to a level that will produce maximum results, without risking injury or over training.
Over the years we have become experts at coaching people to new levels of fitness and performance, without the need to yell and shout! In a Primal Fitness session you’ll want to work hard because it’s fun, not because an ex-drill sergeant is yelling in your face…
