Lauren Crisp - is our agility and sports specialist. She is a Luxembourg national squash player and fitness enthusiast. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Sport Science and Management from Loughborough University. Many sports benefit from the practice of strength training for faster reaction time in order to gain a competitive edge.  It's especially difficult for women to perk up the courage to pick up a weighted barbell infront of men in a gym. ATC is a very welcoming and encouraging environment which embraces women lifters from beginners to experts. Fear not ladies - you will not turn into the Hulk - lifting gives you better shape through toning and creates a stronger leaner appearance. It boosts confidence as a woman and it makes you feel more powerful.

Through strict adherance to the basic principles of effective strength training and display of personal discipline they are making tremendous gains. They frequenty facilitate introduction and coaching sessions for youngsters to show them what real effective strength training is all about and pass on their enthusiasm. Since strength is a super basis for other sports - they both also engage in martial arts, running and swimming - and currently study Business Management (2017)
