Getting Back To Work(outs!)


In common with other gyms and similar personal services, Abstract Bodyworks Newbury temporarily closed our doors on 23 March, 2020. We knew we’d be coming back to a different world so we’ve used the time to put in place a whole set of new procedures to ensure our clients’ safety and still deliver the world class personal training we are known for.


When hope to reopen on 4 July (Government guidelines permitting) where you’ll experience the following enhanced protocols:

  • clients will have guaranteed sole occupancy of the gym, with their trainer

  • the facility will be thoroughly cleaned between clients, ensuring a hazard free space

  • clients will be required to ensure their own cleanliness through safe storage of personal possessions and hand washing

  • we have removed a number of machines from the routines which could not be used safely

  • trainers have identified specific locations where they can provide guidance while maintaining social distancing (see picture for example)

  • session times are extended to 30 minutes – the training still takes only 20 minutes, the additional time allows trainers to clean the facility


What does this mean for our existing clients? They can return confident that they will receive the same world class personal training and begin their journey back to their old levels of fitness. To help monitor that we will be offering body composition testing to all returning clients irrespective of when they last had their report.


What does this mean for new clients? If you don’t feel you can return to your old gym at the present moment but want to begin rebuilding your strength and fitness you can come to Abstract Bodyworks confident that you will get the right kind of SAFE and EFFECTIVE strength training. And because everyone receives TWO FREE INTRODUCTORY SESSIONS you can try us out at no risk – and as we have no joining fees or contracts you can return to your old gym when you are ready to with no risk – that is if you haven’t decided that Abstract Bodyworks really IS the best personal training you have ever experienced!

About Abstract Bodyworks


Abstract Bodyworks® Precision Exercise Newbury is part of a family of personal training facilities in the USA and UK dedicated to one thing - to help our clients live younger and stronger in as little as 15 minutes a week.


Our exercise methods come out of fundamental research carried out in the 1980s by Arthur Jones and later Ken Hutchins. They looked into how ageing occurred and if and how it could be stopped or reversed. They found that the body is perfectly capable of reversing many of the supposedly "natural" consequences of getting old - reduced strength, osteoporosis, increased fat, high blood pressure, Type II diabetes, and many more. Through receiving the right stimulus the body will respond by producing more muscle which in turn begins to reverse many "old conditions". Ken went further by helping first Nautilus® and then MedX® develop training equipment that aided this process.


Later, Ellington Darden and Doug McGuff took on more research and developed the approach even further, so that now we can make the following commitment to our clients:


Every private one on one Abstract exercise session is designed to create change. In just 15 minutes of proper exercise your body will be stimulated to make a dramatic transformation by adding new lean muscle and stronger bones.  An added benefit is this new muscle will rev up your metabolism helping to shed fat with a proper diet.
