What Do You Expect Out Of Your Training?
Nancy and I were at a health fair recently sharing the Get Fit NH goodness with the world (ok, not the whole world :), and a comment kept coming up from people as we talked to them:
It went something like this:
“I’m good, I go to the gym”
to which we follow up with...
“Great, what do you do there?”
and usually we hear about their adventures on an elliptical, or treadmill or something similar.
Our next question is “That’s cool, is there someone in the room that helps you with your training and gives you a plan?”
To which the response is “No, I just usually run for an hour, or do one of the programs on the machine”. In fact, today out of all the people we talked to only one (??) did any form of resistance training.
And that’s where the magic happens – when we explain to them that at Get Fit NH, not only is there a coach (or two or three) in the room, but they are actively coaching each client on safe form, good technique, and progressing or modifying as necessary.
Most of them think that’s the coolest thing ever.
You see there is a huge difference between hiring a room full of machines and hiring a professional coach. For some people the room full of machines is all they want, and that’s great. If that works for you I am all for it.
There is also a huge difference between Get Fit NH and other “class” options out there. We are group personal training. We are not up in front of the room leading the “class”. We are actively coaching, down on the floor when necessary, correcting and refining each movement to make sure our clients get the most out of their training.
After all that’s ultimately why our clients train – to get better – not just tired.
We have high expectations; of our clients for sure, but especially for ourselves. At the end of this post there is a copy of a sheet we hand all our clients outlining our mutual responsibilities. You will find that our expectations for ourselves outnumber our clients significantly. That’s not by accident.
