When you come to the gym, we want you to get the most out of your time here. We want you to come to the gym not just to do the workout but to practice through repetition things you need to work on and the things you are good at but could be better. If you can get to the gym 5-10 minutes early, it would benefit you to pick up a jump rope and start working on the jump rope progression Peter put up in the back of the gym or practice those kipping pull ups or the ever so daunting muscle up. We love to see members practicing skills 5 minutes before class, we hate to see members sitting on the benches waiting for class to start. We know your time at the gym is precious so make sure you get the most out of it.
There are always 2-3 trainers in the gym at a given time and as long as they are not in the middle of workout or teaching, we are here to help you. If you don’t feel like you are making progress or have hit a wall with a skill, pull a trainer aside and ask for help. We want to help you get the results that you want-we thrive on seeing people get their first pull up or muscle up. Coming to class and doing the workout is a big step but as the saying goes practice makes perfect and you can’t get perfect without a little extra time and effort. You can’t get perfect by just coming to class. We love seeing members hit PRs and kill previous wod times, that’s the stuff us trainers live for and remind us how good we are as trainers….haha
As I right this post, Lori Buxton is practicing her double unders before the 6pm class. She just walked in to tell me she got her first double under-hell yeah! So no more sitting around before class, or rushing in 2 minutes late. Try and get the most out of your time in the gym and practice, practice, practice.
