We work with busy people who maybe haven’t done anything physical for a while, know they’re losing their health and fitness, know they need to address this but may feel overwhelmed with where to start.
What we do is guide them through a convenient and simple process to get them to start moving again, work with them to set goals and help them align their training and lifestyle with those goals so they become empowered and educated, build healthy habits and live a fulfilled, energetic life without limitations.
Values.Caring, Coaching, Community:
Without caring, nothing else matters. People can tell if you actually have a real interest in them, their goals and their progress or not. As Teddy Roosevelt said, “No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care”. Every session strives to be the best part of the athlete’s day. We want our athletes to be looking forward to hanging out with us and go home buzzing.
We create a coaching environment, this means our athletes should move and feel better for every class or session. We do not just choreograph people through a workout, we facilitate them improving. E.g. help them help themselves.
In all things, we are professional, we have integrity.
We are effective, we deliver results in the most appropriate way possible for each athlete. This may mean individual programming, benchmarking, steering athletes to the right classes or adapting what we do within a WoD. This means talking to and communicating with our athletes to establish their goals and help them create systems to deliver on those goals.
Education is empowerment. Telling the athlete ‘why’ is vital to their understanding the reason for this workout, but also the principles that underlie what they’re doing and how it fits into the bigger picture.
We do not want clients who are dependent on us, we don’t with hold information. We want clients who train with us because they recognise that being successful is as much about the environment, the people and the team you surround yourself with as having the best program.
We know that in London, athletes will move on every 3-5 years. When we send them into the world, we want to see them thrive because they move as well as possible, are as fit as possible. They should be able to use the coaching experience, the training and testing we provide as the high water mark against which they compare every other gym and teaching interaction in their life. If they leave for a cheaper competitor, I want them coming back a few months later because they could see and feel the difference.
We should educate them to the point that after a couple of years of being an athlete, they know more about training than the average PT. They should be able to teach their kids and parents how to move well because we’ve taught them well.
Inclusive and fun with a sense of humour and personality.
We create moments of elevation, celebrate the opportunities for our athletes to feel pride in their accomplishments, build a connection with each other and us and gain insight into themselves and others.
We welcome anyone of any age or ability level
We expand the concept of community wider than just the people who train at our box, we want to make a positive impact on communities and groups that would not otherwise have access to a gym like ours. We always pass on part used equipment to individuals and groups where it will make a difference.
