The Perfect Training Environment To Get Fast Results
What is the perfect training environment?
You like the idea of getting in shape and you feel ready to take the first step and start exercising. The first thing that crosses your mind is to join a gym, right? So is the gym really the best place to start?
We all know that the gym can be an intimidating place. Equipment can be daunting and training plans can leave you feeling a bit isolated. Although we can all benefit from exercising at a gym, the truth is that without the knowledge or confidence to create and follow a well-balanced training plan designed for your goals, results can not only be disappointing but they can also be dangerous.
What you normally find in gyms is there are 2 types of gym users. Those who know how to train, who are confident in the gym and know how to plan their workout. Then there are the people who don’t really know how to train, but do a few reps on different machines before deciding to opt for the exercise bike, treadmill or rower.
For many years, I ran a personal training business in a busy city centre gym. I was fully booked with amazing clients who I loved working with. They hired me to teach them how to train effectively and help them to achieve their goals. Every single client I worked with over the years in the gym all told me that if I wasn’t training them they would have just done a class or jumped on the treadmill, that’s what they had been doing for years but never actually achieving the results they wanted.
I realised that the gym isn’t the best starting point for people to learn how to train. It can be intimidating, often difficult to get the equipment you need and in peak times over crowded.
What my clients wanted.
In 2014 I asked all of my clients what their perfect training environment would be and this is the response I received:
Somewhere with support on hand from someone who wants to help.
Somewhere for them to learn how to train effectively without being intimidated.
Somewhere they could be themselves and feel comfortable.
Somewhere that they didn’t feel paranoid they were being watched.
Somewhere that that they could socialise with other like minded people.
Somewhere that wasn’t filled with pointless equipment instead with the equipment they needed for their goals with someone to show them what they need to do.
Somewhere that was private, where they could train without others seeing them.
Feedback is important to me and I always value what my clients had to say, so I decided that I was going to create the perfect training environment for them. An environment that was made perfect not by the surroundings, but by the education, tools, support and encouragement we could provide.
The truth is, the perfect training environment doesn’t come down to the bricks and mortar and the shiney things inside. It comes down to the people, the team and the support on offer.
After receiving the feedback, I put a post on facebook expressing that I wanted to create a training environment perfect for people who where new to exercise or to people who currently exercise but can never get the results they want. The interest was HUGE…
Within 6 weeks of receiving the feedback we had sold out all of our courses, signed a lease on a premises, funded and ordered the equipment and opened the doors to our first studio.within 6 months we needed more space, we had to move.
From our small studio to our 2,200sqft warehouse gym.
As you can see from the picture of our warehouse gym, it isn’t filled with treadmills, exercise bikes or confusing resistance machines. We didn’t need that, our clients don’t need that. We were on a mission to create the perfect training environment. A Private training environment where we offer expert support in a team atmosphere. Somewhere that our clients feel welcome, where they can learn how to train effectively, how to understand what is required to achieve their goal and where they could have fun and make friends in the process.
Our VIP clients: Ladies who lift!
We decided that the best way we could help our premium clients and to give them the best possible training environment was to surround them with other amazing people who want to achieve similar goals. When we did that we notices that our clients starting to get better results FASTER than they ever did training one to one with their trainer. The group and team spirit make the training.
