Personal Training in a Group Setting

Get Fit NH has a very unique way of coaching 20+ clients at the same time. People often ask how it’s possible to be considered “personal training” with so many people in one class…

Well team, I’m here to show you a prime example. Let’s take the TRX push up as an example since that is what is captured on video. We don’t expect every person to be at the same fitness level. We also understand that some people are working through aches, pains and injures and will likely need modifications. 

Here is a great example showing three strong, healthy clients progressing the TRX push up by elevating their feet. This was not the standard exercise for the day, but these guys and gals were up for the challenge.

Fast forward to an incredibly strong client, Allie. On Monday, Allie was pulling 525 pounds on sled, but in THIS exercise, we are working on her elbow range as she tends to hyperextend her joints. Same exercise, different focus.

In a quick clip, you’ll see Katie. Katie is less than 3 months post op from a major surgery in her upper body. Katie is focus hard on stabilizing and working through a comfortable range of motion.

And finally, you’ll see Robin, Ingrid, Meg and John all doing TRX chest press as prescribed in the training for the day.

At Get Fit NH, we meet you where you’re at.

Coach Mike Gives Props to Jack Kovar 

I’d like to throw some praise for Jack Kovar.  What do average teens nowadays do?  Play video games, scroll through social media and who knows what else! 

Not this kid.  Jack pushes himself in the gym 100% of the time. He is really pushing himself and progressing.  It’s awesome to see.  After class he was the only one to do a finisher and he completed it! 10 second sprint on ski ERG, then 10 push-ups for 10 rounds.  Unreal.  Strong.  I love coaching this kid.

Do you know any younger individuals that need more time being active? GetFitNH can help with that!

Why do we train farmers carry?

Farmers carry is one of the most functional exercises we can perform. We are always picking things up, carrying and placing them down. We train these to help with real life tasks such as groceries, babies, yard work, etc.

It’s important to train fundamental movements that mimic daily activities!

Protein Packed, Low Carb Spaghetti & Meatball

BRACE YOURSELF because I’m about to make your life so much better!!!

I found a DRY spaghetti squash with spaghetti squash as the ONE ingredient! It cooks in about 5 minutes. I came across this by accident scrolling through Walmart app. I was looking for frozen spaghetti squash and then THIS came up and I decided to give it a go!

It’s so good, the consistency is normal and even better than the frozen version.

I’m a busy person and lazy when it comes to cooking. I like to be prepped as quickly as I can, so there is NO chance I’m cooking an actual spaghetti squash and scraping out the noddles. No, no, and NO thanks! 

I added some marinara sauce and chopped up some Shady Brook Farm turkey sausage. This meal was delish! 10/10 recommend. Let me know if you try it and thank me later!

Sled Pushes Straight Arms vs Bent Arms 

 Arms straight is beneficial for acceleration simply due to the bigger stride length.

Arms bent gives you better leverage from a more tight, compact position allowing you to push heavier loads due to a shorter stride/range of motion, giving you a mechanical advantage.

Yes it’s possible to push heavy loads with arms straight, but the key is to maintain a neutral spine, most people end up dropping their neck and rounding their back to use their bodyweight as an advantage to push.

Key Takeaways:

  • Aways maintain a neutral spine
  • Arms straight is better for acceleration/speed
  • Bent arms is better for heavy loads
