Every now and again someone will ask me about our Group Fitness Training.
What’s it like? What fitness level is it for?
And most commonly, if not expressed out loud, people are thinking, is it right for me?
And what I do then is invite this individual to come and try a session or two. ‘Try before you buy’ is never a bad idea. We feel strongly that we offer a unique service that generates results. But still some are reluctant to come out and give it a try. Why is that?
I think a big part of it is the fear of the unknown.
And fitness facilities are probably the worst places for making people feel uncomfortable and intimidated.
So I can understand the reluctance on the part of some to come out and see what it’s all about.
But the more information you can give someone the more comfortable they become and more likely they are to go ahead with something.
Take our Saturday sand dune workouts.
We’ve been doing these for years. And we always had a standing invitation for others to join us. I would even blog about it from time to time.
But still the fear of the unknown kept many away.
Until I posted some videos of us doing a workout on the sand dunes.
Then all of a sudden more and more started coming out. It’s gotten to the point where it’s now not uncommon for upto 20 people to do the sand dunes on the weekend. To put this in perspective, there were times we had 4 or 5 of us out.
So instead of seeing people out of breath, scratching their way up the sand dune on all fours scaring everyone else away it actually did the opposite thing.
It gave people a glimpse into what it was really all about. It took away the element of the unknown. And it lead many to feel comfortable to give it a shot.
And so I’m going to pull back the curtain and let you see what goes on in our Group Fitness Training.
Below are 2 one minute clips of a conditioning set being done at the end of class.
You’ll see people pushing the Prowler sled. You’ll see kettlebells being swung. You’ll see drills being done with the battling ropes.
And there are a number of things you won’t see.
You won’t see any cell phones.
You won’t see anyone checking themselves out in the mirror.
You won’t see any mindless chatter.
All you’ll see is a great group of hardworking people who give it their all and are a pleasure to work with.
And that makes training here a lot of fun, not intimidating at all and a great recipe for success.
We’re currently adding more training times and would love to show you what we’re all about. Let me know what time & day is best and we’ll take care of the rest.
Keep training hard,
ps…We are away tomorrow August 25-29 for a conference in California. There is a morning session Thurs at 6 am and then training will resume Tues August 30.
