Challenge Training Studios Is More Than Just a Gym

Being part of Challenge Training Studios means we do more than just provide a gym and classes.  We work with local Community Groups, local schools, run menopause programmes, run charity events and work with young people to ensure they learn how to use a gym safely.

We are also a Train the Trainer centre approved by Active IQ.

Challenge In The Community

Natalie is a volunteer and a member of ROC North Belfast, ROC Ballysillan and has taken nutrition sessions for ROC Glengormley .  As part of ROC North Belfast and Ballysillan, Challenge have run fitness sessions, nutrition sessions, been a drop off point for the School Uniform Projects and Winter Coat Projects.

Challenge also work closely with Currie Primary, the Mountcollyer Youth Centre and Reach Out NI Healthy Living Centre (previously called New Lodge and Duncairn Community Partnership) running fitness classes for parents and children, nutrition sessions and menopause sessions.


At Challenge Training Studios we are very passionate about working with women who are perimenopausal, menopausal or post-menopausal.

In January 2023, we partnered with the McDonald Centre to provide a 9 week Don't Sweat It Programme funded by Training For Women Network (TWN) & the Tampax Fund offering fitness, nutrition, personal well-being and personal development where many of the attendees also received an Active IQ certificate Level 1 in Fitness and Physical Activity. With some ladies progressing on to the Active IQ Level 2 Certificate in Gym Instruction and the Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training.

Challenge hope to be running another Don't Sweat It Programme with Reach Out NI Healthy Living Centre January 2024 funded by CLEAR.
