More isn’t better, Better is better
We understand what it feels like to think that working out hard every time you train is the right thing to do
We also understand what it feels like to go to another small studio gym that immediately throws you into 6 days a week HIIT
If you haven’t been working out for a while, the last thing you need is to be smashed every session, or go to the $30/month gym and have someone shouting at you through a boom mike while they get their own workout in.
We don’t do that here
More isn’t better
Better is better
We learn about you and your specific goals, meet you at your current confidence level and prescribe workouts that provide what you need.
Our approach to fitness starts from the moment you walk through the door.
For us to know what you need, we need to know a little about you, so when you first visit us, it’s normally for a chat.
We didn’t always do this.
Out with the old..
We used to say ‘sweet, jump into the next class that works for you’.
And that was great, for a while.
Then we started noticing that some people looked a little lost in their first class.
They didn’t understand the movements, the language used to describe the workouts, or even know the people they were working out with.
In with the Now!
So, now we meet you individually. To talk about your goals and aspirations, to hear about your fears and hopes.
Does it work? I had the pleasure of talking to a guy on Monday.
We discussed his past, present and his hopes for the future.
At the end of the session, he thanked ME, for taking an interest in him.
Perfect. Day. Right. There!
Intimate, not transactional
You see, we don’t want a transactional relationship with you.
We don’t just want to grunt at you as you swipe your membership card on the way in, and repeat the same on the way out.
You can get that anywhere.
We want an intimate relationship with you. We want to know what you are up to at the weekend, how the kids are doing at school, or how your day at work was.
But what’s all this got to do with the way you do fitness?!
Well, it’s simple. We can’t do what we do well if we don’t know you well.
We need you to accept and to trust us so that you can get the best from us as coaches.
My friend Zeus
I adopted a dog a couple of years ago.
At the start, it was easy for me to accept him, because I wanted to help him.
But for Zeus, the challenge was greater.
He had to learn to trust me.
He had to see consistency from me so he could trust, and accept me as a positive influence in his life.
Relationships = Success
A coaching relationship is no different.
Many of the clients we meet have had poor, or awful experiences with the health and fitness industry.
You might be just the same.
They’ve been made to feel inadequate, worthless, a failure because they couldn’t do what a trainer expected them to do.
And so the gym environment becomes one of fear, to be avoided so we don’t have the same thing again.
It’s easy for us to welcome you into our wonderful world of fitness, but it takes time for you to trust us.
We’re cool with that. Our approach to exercise is the same.
Our Free Intro is where we get started
We want you to succeed, to aspire and achieve.
But. We want everything you do in the gym, to have a positive effect on your life outside the gym.
That doesn’t mean we aren’t focused on performance, just that performance isn’t the only marker of success.
More isn’t better, better is better.
We can’t do this without knowing you well. That’s why our approach to fitness starts with you talking to us.
