About

We believe simple is effective, hard work pays off and that training smartly can yield the best results.

One of the hardest challenges within effective programming is to find the best combination of volume and intensity whilst being able to integrate gymnastics, weightlifting and functional movements. We have worked with thousands of athletes over thousands of hours and that has allowed us the experience to be able to find this balance.

The most important aspect of our programming is to make you better in your sport, this is not only done through the programming, but through the feedback and input you can receive from the coaches in our closed groups. Within the programming you will also find specific progressions, daily movement drills and accessory work we use to improve your movement and technique.

We never wanted our programming to be a passive experience, but one where your journey becomes our journey and we are passionate about sharing it with you.

The History

The Progrm began with just a handful of athletes who enjoyed throwing down, working hard and getting better. These sessions usually involved techno, lots of pre-workout and long days in a dark gym.

As this small group of athletes started to do better and excel in competitions, more and more athletes wanted to join and be a part of The Progrm.

Eventually we decided to make The Progrm public and this is where we are today. The original goal has not changed, we have just got better at doing it:

“Supporting athletes in becoming the best athletes they can be.”

We believe that working smarter and harder than the competition can bring us closer to our goals and objectives.

Our team shares our ethos and our programming reflects this ethos. One of the most important aspects of our programming is to make you better in your sport, this is not only done through the programming, but through the feedback and input you can receive from the coaches and the specific progressions we use to improve your movement and technique.

We have a team of coaches with over 50 years of combined experience in functional fitness, who are here to help you achieve your goals.

We do not keep your credit card details anywhere on TheProgrm website, but work with partners PayPal and Stripe to set up recurring payments. These large, specialist companies have a good record of security and are continuously improving their systems to keep your data as secure as possible.
