I'm totally out of shape etc etc...
Relax, you will be encouraged to train at a pace that is sustainable for development, not coerced into having a heart attack. Fitness is sport specific, getting you fit is our job, so if you can make it to the gym, you can make it through a training session.
Why should I train at the Griphouse?
Simple. The quality of the coaching under one roof cannot be equalled anywhere else in Scotland. If you are a total beginner or a pro fighter, you will be coached by the same team, which includes two Bjj black belts, World, European, and Scottish Muay Thai champions, Commonwealth wrestlers, sport science graduates, nutritionists. And the banter is pretty good too.
Can I pay as I go or do I need to be a member?
Check out our Membership information.
How do I set up direct debit?
Cash payment for 1st month so you can begin training immediately. Debit will be set up to come off one month from that date. Form needs bank details, and is available from reception.
