What Others Are Saying...

"I never knew I was capable of any of this..."

"I had always been on an off with the gym. I had no idea how to squat or deadlift - but since joining Strength Forge coaching with the Journey to Strong System, I can deadlift 200kg, squat 140kg and do things I never knew I could."

- Adam C. (Royton)

"Not just in the gym, but in every day life..."

Exercise has always been a way to relieve stress for me, however Strength Forge has given me more direction.

Not just in the gym but in everyday life I have noticed the benefits from strength training. The training programs are always evidence based, and Jon endeavors to research to ensure the program are person specific.

When I first started training with strength forge I managed a 65kg deadlift, 3 pressups and squatted 30kgs on the smith machine - now my maxes are 130kg deadlift, 100kg back squat, 20 pressups and 7 pullups.

"Set my sights on an Iron Man, after I hit my deadlift..."

"So just over a year ago I contacted Jon Mallon at Strength Forge. I was 47, overweight, asthmatic with a bad back after a herniated disk and feeling generally rubbish! Since then, I'm 2 stone lighter, deadlifting 100kg+, have completed a full marathon and several half marathons - with my sights set on an Iron Man competition to come.

Bring It on!! I have never felt better in my whole life!

And for anyone who wants to get fitter, stronger or just healthier, Jon, and the information at Strength Forge is the whole package! 

- Lesley S. (Royton)

"I should've signed up months ago ..."

"I've been struggling to make progress for years, that is until I signed up for Strength Forge Online Coaching. The training is brutal, but I love having the flexibility to train on my own time. The video break downs provided by Jon help so much - they're just what I needed! Watching videos get you so far until someone can pick out where you’re going wrong with it all. No back twitches or pain at all with your advice and on my way to some big PBs!"

- Christopher B.(Shaw)

"I trust Jon will of my training, recovery and where to progress next..."

"I currently feel the biggest, strongest and most prepared physically and mentally than at any other stage of my training evolution. The training was brutal to begin with, and has been insane compared to what I’m used to but my squat and deadlift, have blown up massively over the past few weeks and massive PRs are soon to come!

Strength Forge Online Coaching, takes training to a whole new level when there’s a clear set plan and shit to be getting done, especially when being held accountable.

I can confidently say I trust Jon with all of my training, recovery and where to progress next ,which is a big part of my life, and could not recommend the man enough. Absolute fucking legend!

- Ben F. (Manchester)

"I'm off pain medication and on my way to PBs..."

"I've been training with Jon and the Journey to Strong System for a few years now. I started the Journey after having major surgeries on my spine and Jon has helped my build my strength and fitness to a point where I don’t use pain medication anymore.

His knowledge of strength and fitness is a cornerstone in your training as he passes the learning on without all the industry jargon. He spends time teaching you techniques and movement so you know how to lift and move safely on every exercise. 

The Journey to Strong System is like nothing I've ever come across - bringing results you can see and feel. 

- Avril C. (Shaw)

"Improvements in not only my physical ability, but with my knowledge is invaluable..."

“I have been training with Strength Forge for nearly 2 years.

I first came to Jon, after two surgeries on my ACL.

I’ve gone from not being able to run or squat to being able to squat 80kg, deadlift 110kg and run properly! The improvements in not only my physical abilities, but with my knowledge is invaluable.

Jon’s, drive for your personal improvement is impeccable. His training programmes are backed up by his constant analysis on your personal capabilities and endless knowledge on hypertrophy and strength training. I’m constantly improving and pushing myself more than ever before thanks to Strength Forge. “

- Bryony B. (Manchester)
