Over the last months, the fitness industry has gone through a lot of changes. The “Covid Crisis” was a great leap forward in the evolution of the industry- and that’s good news for you. Don’t get us wrong, we wish the pandemic could have been avoided, but we’re determined to find a silver lining.
Yes, gyms were closed for months, and some gyms even went under. But the coronavirus forced us to find new tools and new ways to help people. We packed a few decades of learning into a few months, and now we’re even better at what we do.
Without physical spaces, gym owners had to get creative in order to connect with their members and help them stay fit. When we pushed ourselves to find new ways to serve ours, here’s what we realized:
We’re not just a gym. We’re a coaching business.
Of course we like seeing everyone doing burpees and squats in our space, but covid taught us that if/when it’s needed, we can coach people without a physical location. On top of that, we can help our members during the 23 hours they aren’t in the gym.
From this, we’ve essentially discovered that people need coaching in a few main areas:
Most gym owners only focus on the first element, exercise, which we understand is really important. In the last months, we learned that we can help you stay fit with or without a space, and we’re now experts in online coaching.
Traveling? We’ve got you covered with programming and accountability.
Can’t get to the gym for any reason? We can get you moving at home.
Want to blend in-person and at-home training to save time? Done!
Beyond exercise, we want to do even more for you, so nutrition is an area of increased focus for us. We can coach you to better decisions in the kitchen, and provide the resources and education you need to stay engaged and motivated. Just like we improve your squat in a coaching session, we can help you reach for the snacks that will make you feel like a superhero in your workouts!
We learned during our Resiliency Challenge that we’re really good at helping people achieve their goals related to changes in their lifestyle behaviors (sleeping, healthy habits, stress management, personal growth, and so on). That might mean providing some accountability to make sure you head to bed at a decent hour, or helping you create a schedule that lets you find time to blow off some stress. If you have a goal unrelated to fitness, let us know what it is- we might be able to help!
Expanding our mindset means that we’re not just a gym- we’re a coaching business. We want to help you move and sweat, but also eat well, sleep well, and manage many other aspects of your life. We want to help you thrive as a person, and we pledge to do so.
You might have noticed increased contact during the Covid Crisis. We couldn’t see you in the gym, so we had to stay in touch in other ways. That increased contact won’t go away, even when the pandemic does. We’re invested in you, and we want to get to know you better and help you more. We’ve got so many new tools at our disposal, and we want to see what you can accomplish.
