The Foundry gives people the opportunity to be trained and treated like a professional athlete. Founded by Ben Gotting and Dave Thomas, The Foundry is a results-driven fitness concept offering classes and small group personal training.
The Foundry's call to action is an attitude - members and guests are strong in mind, strong in body, and strong in commitment.
Over 50 Olympic and international sportsmen and sportswomen have trained with the world-class coaches and become a "City Strongman" - proving that The Foundry really is "Where The Strong Belong".
Our mission is to be the most inclusive, community-minded fitness company and charity in the UK. We live by this credo, and value mental health and wellbeing as much as a great deadlift or deep squat.
We recognise it can be a bit intimidating walking into a gym which includes international rugby players and Olympians amongst its team and members...but you don't need to be physically strong to start at The Foundry. We are proud to have non-threatening environments with world class coaches and a great, fun vibe.
The Foundry isn't interested in short-term, dramatically staged pictures - we work as hard as you on your training and nutrition to help you create a sustainable lifestyle and overall health and happiness, in body and in mind.
Everyone at The Foundry is part of the family and commited to making sure there is "No One Left Behind".
We try not to take ourselves too seriously, but The Foundry's team is unique within the industry. Recruited from professional sport, and under the tutelage of Ben Gotting, everyone is hired for their coaching ability, team ethos, and work ethic.
Unlike most other gyms, our trainers are full-time employees at The Foundry. So not only do they deliver elite training, but they are the faces you will see every time you visit.
This mixture of expert knowledge and friendly personalities, who understand first-hand the power of team training, are the reason The Foundry's team stands out... both physically and metaphorically!
The Foundry also hosts special events in partnership with some of the hottest class trainers in London. Niamh Coghlan, Anna-Maria Ronnqvist, Laura Hoggins, Will McLaren, and others.
