This is one of the best field / sport training programs out there. Chris & Kevin have poured their combined decades of experience into this platform. This is perfect pre season and in season training program, guaranteed to improve your speed, power, strength and conditioning. Train like an athlete.

As an actor working in feature film I’m constantly tasked with achieving new physical goals, whether it be a level of fitness required to perform heavy action sequences or simply changing shape for aesthetic purposes. Whenever I’m on Aussie soil 98 keeps me challenged, focussed and dialled in to wherever I need to be. Physical fitness and adaptability has become a vital ingredient to success in the film industry and it’s imperative to align yourself with professionals who understand how to help you reach your full potential whilst staying inspired and healthy. 98 is world class. I’m lucky to have them on my team.

Earlier this year I successfully summitted Mt Everest for the second time, this time from the North Side in Tibet. My entire training program for 12 months leading up to the climb was designed by Kev Toonen of 98 Gym. This program was a crucial element of the climb itself and gave me great confidence as I undertook my goal.
I felt fitter and stronger on this climb than any previous climb and was impressed with the knowledge and explanation behind the programming. Using this program ensured I was ready for the demands of climbing on Everest.

I joined 98 Gym earlier this year with a background of hypertrophy/powerlifting weights training. Since joining 6 months ago I’ve maintained weight, but have increased strength across all major compound lifts, whilst also feeling fitter and more capable than ever before. I’ve been able to fix poor lifting techniques and identify weak spots which need focus to increase overall strength. Most recently my conditioning training has helped me become more conscious of maintaining a positive internal talk track during tough workouts, where in the past I would have focused on counting down till the rest periods/end of workout. Highly recommend for those wanting to kick their training into the next gear.

I thought I was fit until I took my first class at 98! I was looking for a challenging workout and one year on as a member, I can definitely say this is the fittest and strongest I have ever been. The classes and the entire program are so well-thought out — you are training with and being trained by the best in the business. I find it especially empowering how 98 emphasises strength training for women and love that the culture is 0% about aesthetics and 100% about work ethic. 98 has also built an amazing community and I am so grateful to have made lifelong friends here!

The 98 Gym program that is offered is the most professional and structured training program I have ever been involved with . The thorough and thoughtful way it is put together ensures optimum outcome and results for the many members and online participants. It’s not only rewarding to improve within yourself but it’s been so pleasing to see so much improvement in many of the members since undertaking this program . It is no surprise why 98 gym has such a fantastic reputation from many outside the gym.

You come into 98 to train but everyday you leave with so much more. The 98 program has not only taken my training and performance to the next level, it has instilled the desire to constantly push myself to new heights both in and outside of the gym. The program is purpose driven and progressive, so every session you are able to challenge yourself and test yourself against your previous scores. Every session, every moment is considered and has purpose and it gives you the upmost confidence in the program Since being part of the 98 program, I have hit PB’s in my squat, deadlift, bench and presses as well as being stronger and fitter on the bike, ski and row.

98 Online ensures I train with purpose. The program consistently challenges me, both mentally and physically, it provides me with a sound structure which delivers results – if I am putting in the (hard!) work. Recording my results in the online forum helps with accountability while training independently and motivates me to push for improvement week upon week – it’s also great to see that you weren’t the only one who suffered through that day’s ‘finisher’! I love this program and the ethos it is built upon. I trust the experience and expertise of the team behind it.

If you want to train with purpose and don’t mind a bit of hard work, this is the perfect program for you.

The 98 Program is about consistency, hard work and people from different backgrounds and ages all pursuing improvement in their athletic ability. It’s a community without attitude where all standards are welcomed. You see the same members five and six times a week, giving their best and motivating each other. One year in and the results of the 98 Program are evident. It is clear to see that the 98 Gym members are in Kevin Toonen’s words..”fitter, faster and stronger”!

Interval Weight Training

A highly sophisticated and effective means of multi-variable cross-training to optimise performance in a wide variety of sports. Through the proper selection and manipulation of IWT intensity (load, intensity, volume, and frequency of training) an extremely high level of total athletic fitness can be achieved.

Strength

The strength component will run through a number of phases:

  1. Strength (building a strong base)
  2. Power (developing from your STR base)
  3. Strength Endurance (increasing your overall capacity formed by the previous STR/PWR blocks).

This means squatting in all forms, pressing, deadlifting, and all accessory movements that come along with a solid program.

Energy System Development

Energy System Development (ESD) sessions are comprised of interval work on the ski/rower/bike/running. This works in conjunction with the strength (STR) cycle to increase power, speed and VO2 Max.

This means improving your overall work capacity, enabling you to work harder and stronger, whilst improving your ability to recover from extended work and remain focused on the task at hand.

General Physical Preparedness

The General Physical Preparedness program is a non-specialised training program, suitable to the general population through to specialised athletes. Designed to promote movement efficiency during training, as well as helping create a quality movement patterns that may be used day to day, the 98 GPP Program builds a greater general work capacity in our members, across energy systems and movement planes. The outcomes of the GPP Program are members can train hard, improve recovery time and move well, in addition to learning new key movements.

Power

Power is the rate of producing force, its the main ingredient for all sports that require speed and agility. You can be very strong with large muscle mass yet be unable to display power because you haven’t trained your body to contract your muscle fast. Training to move explosively will enable you to move quicker under load and enhance your speed and agility.

F*ck You Friday

The goal of FYF is to showcase your mental and physical capability, why we are who we are. This is your chance to explore the grit and determination forged in the previous weeks/blocks of training.

Preparing an athlete to succeed in their sporting arena boils down to this – you must appropriately apply your training tools to transfer weight room progress to the arena or you’re just wasting time. Though simple on paper, somehow this approach gets lost when a coach works with a novice athlete.
