Before you start your first session, your coach will make sure that you are comfortable and confident by answering all your questions and concerns. Each session includes a demonstration, showing you how to do the exercise. The coach will be around during the entire session to help with coaching cues and give progressions or regressions.
Q: What is small group training?
Small group training is the affordable and flexible way to get results. We work around your limitations, physical fitness level and availability. Each small group contains 2-6 people. Your coach programs each session with various exercises for a full body workout and accommodates all physical limitations. As you progress with every session, so do your exercises. All sessions are different and nothing gets repeated. Giving you excitement and something new to look forward to every time you step into the gym.
Q: What do I do if I feel like I’m failing?
Well for starters there is no such thing as “Failing”, everything is trial and error. If you are giving it 100%, meaning you feel exhausted and can’t imagine doing another rep, then you did an excellent job. So what you see as ‘failing’ is actually your best. All you need to do is believe in yourself, keep pushing and most importantly have patience. Asides from that, our job is to make sure that you feel 100% confident before executing any session.
Now if something else is going wrong and you still feel like you are failing, but you know you are giving it your 100%, then schedule a consultation with you coach immediately. They will assist you with a solution.
Q: If I do this program 2-3 times a week, will I see results?
Yes! Most clients lose up to 6-7 pounds in their first 6 weeks. Besides working hard in the gym, you also have to be accountable outside of the gym. That's why we offer a 30-45 minute consultation that you to sit with your coach and have an assessment done. Each assessment includes body measurements and body fat reading for tracking progression and of course the nutrition consultation, to understand you and your body to better help you both in and outside of the gym.
