TLA has the best facility for allowing the indoor/outdoor training style with it's excellent Studio space as well as it's own 7 acre woodland to play with for much of the training.

A few spaces have become available for this next 8 week strength block, so if you are interested in improving your strength, coordination, power and speed, please get in touch with Heather to book on, email Heather.

YOGA @ The TLA Studio

Emma’s Vinyasa Flow classes blend traditional Ashtanga yoga postures into fluid, diverse sequences, synchronised with the breath. This connection between movement and breath, as you move from one pose to the next, creates a flowing dance-like sequence that varies from week to week. No two classes are the same. The sessions are exciting and dynamic, while retaining the focus on full, deep Ujjahi breathing. Emma provides modified postures so that beginners and more advanced students can enjoy each class to their full potential. Health benefits of Emma’s yoga include: 
  •  increased flexibility
  •  fitter, toned body
  •  improved blood circulation
  •  a calmer mind
TLA's Yoga classes are held on:
  • Wednesday evenings @ 19:30-20:45 - 4 spaces remaining
  • Friday mornings @ 09:30-10:45 - Full, waiting list active

Welcome to December and the run up to Christmas and more excitingly the run up to 2017! TLA has a couple of exciting emails coming your way over the next few weeks announcing new classes, dates for the Christmas period and a few new plans for TLA in the new year. It has been a great 2016 and we are looking forwards to continuing on all of our current classes, as well as adding on more which will give you more choice and less of an excuse!

Without further ado, let's kick off with this...

NEW Beginners Lifting Course 2017

With the continuing success of the Saturday lifting course, we are pleased to announce that we will be running a four week beginners lifting course in January 2017.

The course will be suitable for those who have not really done any form of weight lifting before, but would be keen to learn and then look to join the regular Strength group.

We will cover the Deadlift, Back Squat, Bench Press and Overhead Press, with a look into other lifts such as the Bent-Over Row, Romanian Deadlift and Bulgarian Split Squat.

Lifting with Barbells is very satisfying and has a huge number of benefits, but it is important to learn the fundamentals of each move so you can do it safely and correctly. This will allow you to progress, gain maximum benefits and stay injury free.

The course will start on Saturday January 7th at 10.30am and continue for 4 weeks. It will be held at the TLA Studio. The beginners lifting course will be held by Heather Grimes level 2 Strength & Conditioning Coach & Personal Trainer.

The course will be limited to 8 people and will cost £45 for the whole four weeks. The first four people to sign up will receive a FREE Studio hand-towel (RRP-£15).

Please contact Heather at or by clicking HERE to secure your place.

 'I thought it was the perfect mix of technique teaching and boxing combination pair work, ending with a hard ‘core' blitz. Never a dull moment and my arms are now aching in all the right places! Wouldn’t expect anything less from Tony.'  - Balvir 

'Thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's fast-paced and varied class. Great start to the week. Having to concentrate on feet and hand coordination totally distracted from the physical exertion and the hour whizzed by. Thanks to Tony for patience and encouragement. Feeling it this morning though!'  - Rachel

I really enjoyed the class. It was fun, energetic, well instructed and a great atmosphere. - Theresa
