“Had a genuinely amazing week training in Gloucester with the Forma gang. Their facility and training is first class, their attention to detail and enthusiasm inspiring. The people of Gloucester and Stroud are really lucky to have this facility underpinned by great coaching. I’d love it if it were on my doorstop!”

“I joined Forma Gymnastics after going to their open day at the beginning of January 2017 and was immediately hooked! At the time I joined I was a keen runner and had been for over 20 years. However, I wanted to do something completely different that would challenge me but also improve my strength and flexibility.

The classes are never the same, the instructors are so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I noticed the change in my body shape and condition which spurred me on even more. What I like about this exercise is that you work as a team and are made to feel you can do it if you put your mind to it.

My personal life has gone through some very unfortunate, dramatic changes but Forma has helped me forget what is going on with my life in the time I am there which has been so very important and wonderful to me. At 50 years old, my body shape is the best it has ever been. I have never been overweight or needed to lose weight, but my body looks fit and strong which is a great confidence booster. I work as a Clinical Canine Massage Therapist which means that I am sitting on the floor a lot working on dogs and this can be very tiring and challenging. Having a stronger core has helped no end with my back which then has a positive impact on my job. I feel so lucky to have Forma on my doorstep and, no matter how bad my day has been, I always leave the class feeling more upbeat and with a smile on my face! I love my Forma Family!”

“13 years ago I slipped two discs in my lower back and was stuck in a bad health rut, taking 8 painkillers per day and avoiding many physical activities. During this time I tried every chiropractor, osteopath and Pilates class…. until I found FORMA. After just 6 months I came off the pills and began to notice the difference. Now 2 years later I am a totally changed man. I am stronger, more flexible and completely free from back pain. I’ve lost weight and toned up. Wes, Claire and the team have changed my outlook on life from “can’t do” to “can do” and that result is priceless.”

I travelled from Ireland to spend a week just dedicated to training with the Forma crew.
On arrival I was greeted instantly by the instructors who went above and beyond to make my experience unforgettable. As a gymnastics and mobility coach myself I couldn’t have enjoyed the classes more – at Forma they have found the perfect balance to cater to every level, pushing those who need it and scaling back for others.

“FORMA is the only thing I’ve managed to stick to in my life. Not only has it helped me to become the strongest I’ve ever been, its also made me more aware of my body and calmed my anxiety. The community and instructors are so inspiring and encouraging, always celebrating each others personal victories and having fun whilst we do it – I love the FORMA family.”

“We joined Forma together after hearing about it from a few places. To begin with we were nervous, but the instructors are so welcoming and friendly it was an easy transition. Over the last year we have improved our strength, flexibility, and gymnastics skills (particularly our handstands and ring strength). There is such a positive community spirit at Forma, and we love being a part of the “Forma Fam”. We usually attend approximately 4-5 sessions a week (we would attend more if we could). The packages are great – works out cheaper than any other class. The classes are a good mix of fun and challenging. We are fully addicted!”

“Classes at Forma are addictive, I started almost 4 years ago and coming to class after class has changed my approach to health and fitness for good. I’ve achieved skills which I never expected and have gained the freedom to move my body in any way I need. There’s a community at Forma that sets it apart from other gyms, I can honestly say I would recommend it to anyone.”
