Roar Fitness

For Body Transformation

If you’re willing to put in the hard work, Roar Fitness won’t disappoint. Headed up by former Olympic skater Sarah Lindsay, Roar’s programme focuses on strength training and diet. Ideal for those looking for quick and long-lasting results, the four-week online programme starts with a consultation to formulate your bespoke plan, spanning workouts, nutrition and supplements. Workouts are done via the Roar app and, throughout the month, you’ll have weekly check-ins with your trainer to keep you on track. 

The Details: A four-week online training programme costs £299 – eight-week and 12-week packages are also available. The programmes are designed around access to a gym, so you may need to factor a membership into the equation if you don’t have adequate kit at home.

Access to the platform will give you access to live classes as well as hundreds of on-demand classes, including challenge series to help you better structure a week – or month – of Pilates workouts. We’ll be signing up to the Summer Strength Challenge, a three-week programme that includes full-body workouts, meditation and stretching for a top-to-toe reset.

The Details: Your first seven days on the platform are free – from £42 a month thereafter. You will also need a few pieces of kit – think light hand weights, a Pilates ring and ankle weights – for the best results.
