Happy Sunday Everyone,
Thanks (as always) for everyone who took the time out of their week to do a session or three with us since I last put pen to paper. I know for me I wasn’t able to get a single session in between Sunday and Wednesday last week – a few staff away on leave and a 14th birthday make up the bulk of my excuses – and I really missed it. Thankfully I was able to get some training done on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (Funky-Boxing-Funky for anyone interested) and together with a solo run in 40degree heat during the afternoon shut-down last Tuesday and a solo weights session last Sunday, well, that made up my exercise week. Probably not enough for me to be satisfied (when am I ever??) but enough to push away that nagging feeling that I’m “not DOING anything!”.
I wanted to talk a little bit today about the various gym rules and ‘movement standards’ that we use at the gym. Now – some of these rules are ‘hard and fast’ (making sure you have a towel when you are on the bike) and others are a bit more ‘flexible’ (chest touches the ground during a pushup)…but in all honesty, the rules are what makes the world go around…well, maybe THAT is overstating it, but they 100% are the key to you guys clearly understanding what the coach is expecting with each activity you have been asked to do.
The rules aren’t supposed to be mindless and annoying – they ARE supposed to be making sure that everyone is training using techniques that are both SAFE and BENEFICIAL in terms of enhancing physical development. I have to admit, I have been getting a little more concerned of late that with the revised structure of the boxing classes it has become more difficult for us to both teach and enforce basic movement standards (hence the focus on the use of the BEGINNERS cells so that new people get the best opportunity to be coached)…because ultimately if you guys aren’t doing things properly then you might very well be wasting your time – after all, what is the point of ‘doing’ a set of squats if each and every one of them was rushed and, well…rubbish?
We know this can be a daunting time. You’re probably wondering if we really are the right fit for each other. And it’s OK! Many people before you, have felt the same, and that’s why we want to offer you something special – our $29 Health Check.
Let’s work out together to see if we’re the right fit. Just hit the button below to let me know if you’re ready to see what’s included.
