Tue 22 September8:00amLive - Strength & Conditioning (Full Body)
This group-based class is designed to provide both a thorough workout and the tools you need to make it specific to your personal needs. By combining age old principles with the latest research-based systems, Strength and Conditioning is a great way to help your body improve its functional performance through your daily life – enabling it to move better, with more control, more power, and with less effort. Quite simply, strength training doesn’t just make you stronger. It can help you become healthier, happier, more functionally capable and more injury resistant.
Lenny Leonard
Master Trainer and Head of Personal Training at Ten, Lenny has over two decades’ experience as a coach across the fitness and sporting spectrum, with 15 years of that time spent in the British Army as part of the Royal Army Physical Training Corps.
During his time in the military he deployed on operational tours of Iraq and Kosovo and completed the infamous and arduous Pre-Parachute Selection Course (P Coy), earning him the right to wear the coveted maroon beret and parachutist wings. Lenny subsequently served with the elite 16 Air Assault Brigade as a Para-trained soldier.

In his peacetime role, one of his primary responsibilities was ensuring all 500-plus officers and soldiers within his Regiment were fit to serve. He managed a team of instructors who assisted him in delivering a robust programme of training, delivered across the range of abilities from those returning from injury through standard PT and onto obstacle course and unarmed combat modules.

After leaving the forces, Lenny took a year’s break from fitness and worked as a close protection operative in Basra, Southern Iraq. Upon his return he found his way back to coaching, initially working as a PE Teacher/Strength and Conditioning coach in the private school sector before moving to London in 2015 to begin a Personal Training career in the commercial sector.

Lenny has always been a keen sportsman and in more recent years has turned his attention to climbing. Previously he had a 10-year boxing career in the Army and competed in cross-country, athletics and basketball. However, football was where he excelled representing the Army Senior Team for a large part of his career and playing at semi-professional level for teams in the UK and in Germany.

Leading with a “human first, specialist second” approach, Lenny is convinced that the further we stray from what evolution has designed us to do, the further we stray from health.

For him, there is simply no one-size-fits-all approach. Instead we are all a unique Rubik’s Cube of conditions, adaptations and issues that has been formed by our preferences, experiences and lifestyles, and solving some of these puzzles is frequently the key to achieving our goals.

By re-establishing some of the more ‘human’ elements to our approach, whether that be increasing range of motion and joint health or improving gut health and sleep performance, we are better able to make the progress we’re looking for. And quite often, progress is made by streamlining what we do outside of the gym.

Lenny is not actually his Christian name, but only his mother calls him Philip.

He lives in Hackney with his girlfriend and 3 cats and is father to 2 beautiful daughters. He is a huge fan of electronic music and can often be found at the weekend digging in record shops to add his ever-growing collection.

Gurdev Hanspal

Having completed a BSc in Sports Therapy, Gurdev is now in the process of completing an MSc at St Mary’s Twickenham in Strength and Conditioning, so it’s no surprise that he is able to call upon a breadth of knowledge and range of coaching methods in order to help people achieve better mobility.

 

Having previously worked with a multitude of athletes in the disciplines of Track and Field, Football, American Football and Rugby, he’s also no stranger to performance enhancement and it’s also extremely important that he is able to ensure his clients reach their goals.

 

His interest in Pilates stems from its connection to the central nervous system, which controls the body’s movement. Gurdev has found that by incorporating a range of equipment, including the Reformer, into traditional Pilates exercises, he can teach his to create, embed and maintain better patterns of movement. This means that he can enable his clients to achieve their fitness goals whilst reducing unnecessary strain on the body, and helping them avoid injury or discomfort.

 

When it comes to his own body, he has always had a keen interest in contact sports such as Boxing and Muay Thai, and he’s recently started training in the discipline of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under multiple world champion, Braulio Estima.

 

Gurdev admires Braulio as a great master of the sport, who has helped him to focus both his body and mind using similar principles to the ones that underpin Pilates.

 

It’s these principles that have helped him improve his own ability to control his body during movement, from the core and trunk through to the extremities, even under fatigue. He is now able to understand how to control his body from proximal to distal aspect. And he enjoys nothing more than transferring this knowledge to his clients.
