How to prepare

Stay hydrated - sweating is part of the fun, but dehydration isn’t, so drink plenty of fluids beforehand and bring plenty with you.

What to wear - keep it light and keep it tight too if you prefer, just make sure you’re comfortable. Make sure you bring indoor shoes that will keep you stable and supported.

When you arrive at STORM

Check-in - contactless, via our app, 30 minutes before your session starts. For your first session, we’d also recommend you arrive at least 20 minutes beforehand. Our team will be ready to welcome you and answer any final questions you have.

Locker room - we’ll give you a STORM branded locker room card when you arrive. This will give you access to changing and showering facilities and act as your locker key. Find an empty locker, put your things inside and tap the card on the locker pad. When the light turns red, it means it’s locked until you’re ready to tap again and unlock. Remember to return your locker card to us after your workout!

Setting up for your workout

Heart-rate tracking technology - Before you start your first STORM, the team will loan you one of our heart-rate tracking sensors and mitts, and your coach or experience host will help you set it up. We use this system to keep you focused on your own strength and speed and get you into the ‘No Comparison Zone’[LINK TO SCIENCE BEHIND STORM?] When the workout is over, simply hand your kit back to one of the team.

For hygiene reasons and the most personalised STORM experience, we recommend all our STORM troopers purchase their own heart-rate tracking wearable and mitts. You can buy them both through our website or in any of our studios.

During your workout

We like to switch up our Bootcamp workouts and always keep things fresh, but you can expect Chase, Lift and Punch in every session, ensuring you develop your endurance, strength and power. In each zone, you’ll work in 2 minute blocks, either 2x 2 minute blocks, or 4x 2 minute blocks, with recovery in between - a true HIIT workout.

Chase - level up your stamina and cardiovascular health with routines that get you moving faster and driving longer than you ever thought possible.

Lift - build full-body strength with free weights and bodyweight movements, designed to work with your body’s nature but challenge your limits.

Punch - grow your explosive power against our punching bags. Just grab a pair of gloves (one of ours or bring your own!) and picture whoever or whatever you want… We enhance this zone with explosive plyometric exercises, as well as sand bags and sand bells.

After your workout

Ask your coach or experience host questions - want to level up your strength in a certain area, or find out how you can practice your form? Grab your expert coach or experience host afterwards and ask them any burning questions.

Book again - we can’t wait to see you for another high energy workout. Book your next session through our app or the Urban Sports Club app.
