Former England football captain Alan Shearer has opened a 760sq ft (70.6sq m) Speedflex studio at The Health Club in The Kingsley Hotel in Cork, Ireland.

The studio, which is open to both members and hotel guests, is Speedflex's ninth.

Sessions are performed in a group with up to 16 participants in a studio environment, offering high intensity interval training (HIIT) that use hydraulic machine-based technology.

The machines allow users to perform traditional exercises, such as squats and shoulder press, that generate personalised resistance levels so every individual can train at their own level.

Suitable for all ages and abilities, the harder a person pushes the machine, the more resistance they face.

A typical session includes a combination of Speedflex machines and auxiliary stations. The combination provides an ever-changing exercise experience and delivers the benefits of HIIT, but does so with minimum risk of injury and reduced post-exercise pain.

During the session users receive live feedback through heart rate monitoring.

Shearer, who is a Speedflex director and ambassador, uses the training sessions three of four times a week.

Paul Ferris, Speedflex managing director, said: “We’re delighted to partner with The Health Club at The Kinsley Hotel to bring our unique training concept to Ireland. The Kingsley Hotel already has a great health club and spa offering and as such is the perfect choice for our launch in Ireland.

“Speedflex will bring something new to the members and encourage those who would otherwise not step into a gym to try something different.”
