"The body should be treated rigorously, that it may not be disobedient to the mind.”
Dorchester AGOGE is a Martial Arts training facility that specialises in Strength and Conditioning, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for adults and children. All three disciplines are instructed by highly qualified and experienced coaches and can be taken as group classes or personal training.
Traditionally the AGOGE was a training school in Ancient Greece which trained young Spartans in physical fitness, Martial skills and mental fortitude. While our facility is open to everyone who wishes to work hard and seek self improvement, the name Agoge best encapsulates the services we provide.
Our approach to training isn’t the industry norm, we’re not interested in how heavy, how quickly or how many times you can perform a movement poorly. We’re not interested In the latest expensive trainers, energy drinks or high fives.
We are however interested in delivering high quality coaching to clients who aren’t looking for a quick fix or “hack” and recognise the path to improvement is found through consistent training, hard work and deliberate practise.
Most aren’t looking to compete and “exercise to exorcise” is an accurate mantra. Whether that’s to exorcise stress or anxiety , exorcise the effects of an unhealthy lifestyle, exorcise depression or any other demons lurking beneath the surface.
We do not offer “pay per session” as improvement requires consistency and commitment. We do not allow “drop ins” because they take away from the efforts of the clients who have already committed. We do offer various monthly plans to make training accessible and affordable to most.
All potential clients are invited to attend a trial week to sample our classes and see which discipline would best suit their training goals and schedule before committing to regular training at the AGOGE.
