Balkan Strength Machine

Minimal Effective Dose Maximal Strength Training
Why use the Balkan?

The Balkan is the first of its kind in the UK. Combining Science and technology, it can be seen as the most efficient way of maximising strength gains in the most minimal time required. With 1-2 30 minute sessions a week, we are able to see huge improvements in strength and muscle mass, completed in the safest way possible.


  1. Increased muscle mass and bone density
  2. Reduced chance of injury from lifting near maximal capacity.
  3. Decreased time required for strength training.
  4. Maximal resistance in all movements, eccentric, concentric & isometric.
  5. Can lead to an improved body composition.

The Balkan Science & Studies

We can generally only lift 50%-60% of our maximal eccentric movement. Therefore in any movement (unless tailored) we will always struggle to lift to our capacity. Eccentric training has been seen as one of the most efficient ways to build maximal strength. The Balkan allows you to maximise both eccentric, concentric, and isometric holds to your maximal capacity as you are pushing against a machine/computer that will match your exact force. This not only is done in a much safer way, but essentially optimises the weight you are resisting at all times, something that is extremely hard to do in a gym as lifting that heavy has high chances of injuries, and will usually need a spotter. It can also take a lot of time to put weights on/off etc.

Reviews & Results

  • The F.I.T Partnership is just brilliant… 20 mins on the Vasper allows me to gain the benefit of what used to take over an hour, but with no tired muscles…. a couple of minutes in the Cryotherapy chamber significantly helped to improve both my back & shoulder injuries – I always leave, feeling much more energetic.

    How lucky we have this opportunity in Wimbledon.
    Will definitely come back.

  • After the first cryo session my brain was cleared of that constant fog and I felt good. Really good. Now I am training 3 times a week (cryo and vasper) and I am pain-free, happy, no brain fog, mental health is peaking, I am losing weight and my body shape is slowly changing.

  • Cannot thank Max and the team enough for making me feel so comfortable for my first ever Cryotherapy session. Very impressed with the kit and the measures put in place to adhere to government social distancing guidelines.



  • Amazing experience to visit this cryotherapy chamber at -111degrees c.

    Max was really helpful, explaining what to expect and even giving us a choice of music!
    Felt terrific afterwards




  • I am now a few sessions in with Max (the owner) and feeling great! My knee and back pain has reduced considerably so finally getting back to my old self! With a mix of Cryotherapy and the vesper I feel better, healthier and also sleeping better!



  • The Vasper experience is highly recommended whether you are a professional athlete looking to gain an edge or whether you haven’t exercised in years and are looking to improve your mobility and feel better. Max is very professional but also makes the sessions fun.


  • Lovely to exercise without feeling hot and flustered.
    My fitness levels have improved which is important for someone with back problems. This form of non weight bearing form of exercise is the best for injuries.



  • A morning of Vasper (HIIT) followed by Cryotherapy is a truly fantastic start to the day. It’s impossible to explain to anyone who hasn’t done Vasper (google it) how effective it is – and Max makes the whole exercise immense fun. If you’re within 100 miles of this place, try it: it’ll be worth the drive.
