New Member Introduction

Getting started in a new gym and beginning a new fitness program can be intimidating. I strongly recommend that each new member schedule a meeting with one of our Certified Personal Trainers to discuss the introductory training programs we have available to make your transition here more comfortable and productive. 1. Orientation Session - One of our Certified Personal Trainers will take you on a tour through the entire gym. He/She will inform you of each piece of equipment that is available to you, what it is used for and the correct form when using it. During this orientation session you will have the opportunity to discuss your personal goals with your trainer and he/she will advise you on a program that will help you to reach your goals quickly and safely – The orientation is FREE with your membership. 2. Jump Start Program - Your Jump Start Program begins with a consultation and fitness assessment by one of our Certified Personal Trainers. Through a series of questions, simple exercises and drills, your trainer will determine your fitness level including strength, endurance, core strength, balance, and flexibility. With this information he/she will take you through 3 training sessions tailored to your personal goals. At the end of the sessions you can either continue to work with your trainer or branch out on your own. If you choose to be independent a detailed written program will be provided in the weeks to come. The Jump Start Program is $200.
