Wattbike is the chosen indoor training tool used by Olympic champions, professional athletes and officially endorsed by British Cycling. Wattbikes are engineered to enhance the performance of any athlete whether you’re a complete beginner or an elite athlete.

A smooth ride mimics the feel of the road and their cutting edge digital technology measures over 40 different aspects of your ride. Real time feedback provides you everything you need to know about your performance helping you track progress as your training develops. Here at AF we have our own Watt Bike Studio for both classes and individual hire.

At The Athlete Factory we understand that nutrition is the key that unlocks results from the training. That is why our Fuel Bar is crucial to the AF Facility. Not only to support the programming through pre & post nutrition but to be a focal point for the members. It also allows members to relax with our signature coffee which is supplied by pro rugby player Dave Seymour who we have worked with previously.

The bar will have smoothie’s created by our in house nutritionist’s and some options that are the Greening family favourites. The fuel bar is supported by our partners Applied Nutrition sports supplements who work with many elite teams and individuals and are Sport Assured and our meal prep partners Gymology who provide great tasting, highly nutritious ready meals that have the right macros to suit your goals.
