Jugal Thapa

Qualifications: Level 1 & 2 Fitness/personal Trainer , BSc Sport nutrition , Strength & Conditioning coach, Level 1 football coach, Circuit training

Favourite exercise: My favourite exercise is Power Clean because this shows ones ability to explosively direct a barbell from the floor up to the shoulders. This requires speed and timing and this is the reason why its my favourite. 

Hobbies: I play football in my spare time and I play in the north west county level. I have been playing football for a long time but I did take a small break from football and competed as an Olympic weight lifter for a number of years. 

One interesting fact about myself: I can speak 3 and half languages (currently learning French)

Small group training

If a 1-2-1 approach is not for you, our qualified instructors can offer small group training (SGT). Our small group personal training model is perfect for all ages, abilities, and health and fitness goals. SGT is increasing in popularity because you get all of the benefits of working with a highly qualified personal trainer but at a fraction of the cost. We limit the numbers to no more than 4 members in each session, creating the ideal training environment. Limiting the number means we can focus on improving your technique, motivate you to work to your full potential, and create a supportive environment where you can thrive in your training. Why not bring a friend along and train together?

For more information or to book please speak to a gym instructor, or speak to reception in-person or via activehud@hud.ac.uk.

Our next set of small group training course will commence on 17 April 2024 and will be £35 for the 6-week block of training. Spaces are limited, so get in touch soon!
