SWEAT Southsea

The number one destination for personal training in Portsmouth.


The SWEAT Plan

We have some exciting plans and we hope that our crowdfunding style campaign will help us execute it. By offering an awesome range of events, products and services, (including our Christmas Party) we hope to raise the remaining amount we need for our SWEAT HQ refurb!

Please read our story and take a look at our future plans!

We think we have created an amazing and unique atmosphere here at SWEAT. And we know we have amazing clients, class regulars, and fans as well as a fantastic team. Now, it’s time to finish the job we started when we took over the building and make the facility as great as the atmosphere, team and customers!
— Luke & Tina

How it all started....

Having been training clients outside on Castle Field, Southsea for a year, Luke was on the lookout for a premises. The kitchen showroom where SWEAT now stands had been empty for some time but at 3,000 square foot, was a little big for a modest personal training business. That's where Tina stepped in, creating the SWEAT Southsea brand. One of Luke's clients-turned-friends Keris hand-drew the logo which was completed by an old school friend Simon, a local graphic designer. A tough journey ensued as we sought to establish ourselves. Now, just over two years since our launch, we can truly be proud of our services, the team we have built and our business.

What came next....

We knew that personal training and classes can be costly and we wanted to ensure we could help people live healthy and active lives regardless of budget. And that was how the Fitness Festival was born. Our unique, free event which takes place every June on Southsea's Castle Field has grown year on year and planning is already underway for 2018 with a huge international fitness brand already on board!

This August sees the opening of Canoe Lake Leisure's brand new pavilion and we are delighted to be teaming up to deliver classes including HIIT TRX and TRX Conditioning! Canoe Lake Leisure is set become an official TRX facility and our trainers are looking forward to our upcoming course.


Our plan....

  • The office will be replaced with a counter. This will free up valuable space in the lobby which will have it's flooring replaced and sprint track integrated... Perfect for the brand new prowler sled and soft tyre!
  • The gym will have additional matting for functional training and we will be adding to our equipment list. As well as the sled which is great for pushing, pulling and dragging and the soft tyre which is great for flipping and jumping in and out of amongst other things, we'll have a new rowing machine!
  • With a bigger team and improved space, we will be able to host more and more events and workshops.


What else....

.....Yes, we have Fark, (owner of The Tea Tray on Osborne Road), on standby to once again be let loose with friends in SWEAT..... #southseaghetto
