*Please read below about all fitness levels.
Each fitness session will last for 45 minutes, including warm-up and cool-down. We design each workout so that you get the most out of the 45 minutes if you show up on time and leave on time. We ask that you would be respectful of this 🙂
What if I’m not in very good shape? What are the fitness levels?
We use progressive programming for the Get You in Shape fitness session. That means each person goes at their own personal fitness level. If you’re not in very good shape, we’ll start you slow (there will be others in the same boat, so you won’t be left behind), but work you up to speed more quickly than you can probably imagine right now. The amazing thing about the human body is how it adapts quickly to proper stimulus. We will SAFELY challenge you never more so than you can handle. With years of experience working with of all ages and fitness levels, we have this progressive programming down to a science.
Just know that you are welcome at Get You in Shape regardless of your level of fitness, and you will not feel out of place, even if you think of yourself now as being totally out of shape. You are not alone. Help is here, both from us (your trainers/coaches/instructors) and the friendly, caring support you will receive from you other co-workers. We work as a team, inspiring and being inspired, and everybody wins!
What is Group Personal Training ? What types of exercises will we be doing?
First let me say that everything we do at the fitness session are FUN. You will never be doing long, boring cardiovascular exercise or painful, hard, heavy lifting. Those days are gone. Group Personal Training is just Personal Training in a Group Environment.
Everyone will go at their own personal fitness level. Which just means that you will only be pushed to your own personal fitness limits. Nothing more..nothing less. You can and will feel at ease with our style of workouts that allow all fitness levels to come together and be pushed at every level because of the way we perform the workouts.
Resistance Training or strength training along with some cardio will be the majority of the fitness sessions. Studies show that resistance training is very effective in the process of getting rid of body fat and getting in shape. The Core muscles will be a primary target as strengthening your core muscles helps to support your spine and keeps your body stable and balanced. Yoga exercises, resistance training, core work, and other forms of exercise are just some of the areas of focus to get a great full-body, calorie burning, shock your body workout session each and ever time.
The bottom line is that you can do it all, and with our progressive programming you can start at a pace that's comfortable for you, and increase your intensity under our supervision and instruction, safely and measurably, quicker than you can imagine. That's how you get results!gone.
What if I don't know how to exercise properly before starting?
Each participant will be taught how to perform each exercise correctly and each exercise has a progression level from beginner levels of fitness to advanced. Each person will be going at their own fitness level throughout the fitness program, and progress at their own pace. The certified professional fitness trainers will help explain and assist in the different progressions. We ask that you communicate with the trainer if there is an exercise you should not be doing for whatever reason. We can help give you an alternative exercise based on your limitations and fitness level
What do I need to bring with me to the sessions?
1) Positive Attitude - We want to provide a community that is a healthy environment that helps with motivation, encouragement, inspiration and accountability. Your attitude will help make that happen.
2) Fitness Mat We will be doing a lot of exercises on the concrete so you will need some sort of fitness mat.
You can get mats in the fitness section in Wal-Mart, Target, Academy, Dicks, etc
3) Water, small towel and sunscreen- Water is certainly needed to help with hydration. The small towel can be used for sweat 🙂 and the sunscreen is used to protect your skin.
"We will get you in, get you out and get you fit". That's our slogan, and we live up to it. Each Get You In Shape fitness session is fast and fun, with not a moment wasted. You are burning calories at a high rate, and then continuously thereafter as a result of the exercise you did and the lean muscle you build. And our location could not be more convenient.
How quickly can I expect to see results in the mirror?
It took time for you to get where you are today so it's only natural that it will take a little time to start seeing changes to your body. We do know you will start feeling much better and start experience many of the benefits that occur when you start living a healthy lifestyle. We want to stress that nutritional habits are 70% of your battle which is why we encourage you to follow the Get You In Shape Program Guide (which will be on our Member's Only website that you will have access to after filling out the LifeStyle Profile webform below).
