What does the Hangar offer ?

Wondering What does the Hangar offer?  The Hangar Human Performance Centre based in Penarth Road, Cardiff offers a wide range of services to help you look and feel fantastic!  With a friendly community feel and brand new equipment, we are so much more than just a gym.

So much more than just a gym

Of course, the main purpose of The Hangar HPC – is the gym itself as we’re a facility for strength and fitness.  But we offer a lot more than that, making us quite different from the regular, commercial or council-run gyms.

Strength and Conditioning

Whether you train on your own, with a Personal Trainer, or by following our APE program, our facilities have everything you will need and more.  Literally tons of free-weights, kettlebells, olympic bars and functional equipment, we have all you need for full body strength and conditioning.

Expert Classes and Coaching

As a gym that has been purpose-built for martial arts and combat sports, The Hangar only offers the very best coaches and trainers to teach our classes.  And by that, we mean champions in their sport, or experts in their field.  For example our Pole Teacher judges pole competitions around the country.  Our Head Combat Sports Coach has had over 100 professional fights, and our Wrestling Coach has competed in the Commonwealth games.

We’re not “just a gym”

Specialised Courses

We run Beginners Pole Sport courses, Beginners MMA Courses here in Cardiff and seminars specialising in various activities and sports.  Our social media @hangarhpc shows details of these.

Sports Massage

Two of our trainers Matt and Neil offer sports massage from The Hangar.   Neil offers a clinic style rehab service from The Hangar with a sports-positive focus to get you back on your feet. We have two pristine treatment rooms that are warm and relaxing, and private.


If you’re recovering from an injury, it is really beneficial to continue training and moving — but in a safe manner, and we have experts here at The Hangar to help you do just that.


Sheldon offers expert microblading from our treatment room, and has fast become the go-to person in South Wales for the best results on this image-enhancing treatment.  For obvious reasons you need to choose a therapist you can trust and Sheldon offers lots of case studies and before-after pictures on her social media pages.

Treatment Room Hire

We have a new, insulated treatment room available for hire by the hour for selected therapies. Contact us for details.


We serve fresh coffee and simple healthy-meals and snacks all day.  With freshly-brewed coffee at just £1 and tea 50p it won’t break the bank, as we offer club prices.  From protein-drinks and smoothies to simple eggs and toast, you can refuel quickly and healthily after training at great prices.
