If you’ve spent some time browsing our website, our social media pages or are on our email list, you’ve likely seen a “Book a Free Intro” button or have heard us talking about coming in for one.
No doubt you have questions about what this entails. And if you’re like most new members, you’re probably a bit nervous. Stepping foot into a brand-new place and meeting someone new can be intimidating, especially if you’re not totally sure what to expect.
So, what is a Free Intro?
A free intro is simply a conversation with us. You will come into the gym, meet with us, you get to see what everything looks like, and you talk to a coach one-on-one. It’s sort of like a consultation where we find out how we can best help you. There’s no working out involved and definitely no high-pressure sales tactics. Over the 8 years we’ve been in business, we have found this is the #1 best way to introduce new members to our gym.
During the free intro, there are three main goals:
Goal # 1 – We Get to Know You
We want to learn all about you! What sort of exercise are you currently doing? What types of exercise have you enjoyed, and what have you not enjoyed? How is your nutrition like? Are you self-motivated or do you need extra accountability? What are your #1 health and fitness goal, and why?
We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach because those aren’t effective. Every plan is individualized to your needs, your preferences, your budget, and your goals. We have to get to know you before we can determine the best fit.
Goal # 2 – Find Out Your Goals
We want to know more about what you are trying to achieve. Everyone comes into our gym with some goal, otherwise you wouldn’t be coming in. We aren’t successful unless you are, so we dig deep to find out your true goals.
Over the years, we’ve discovered that when people come into our gym, their goals almost always fit into 1 of 6 main goals:
- Be healthy.
- Get stronger.
- Look better.
- Lose weight.
- Improve sports performance.
- Do fun and challenging workouts.
If we can pin point what category your top goal falls into, we can find the objective measures that you care about! This will help us measure the trends on where your health is going; for example body composition, tape measurements, workout performance times, etc. Basically, we can collect data on each one of these goals in some form and do the same measurement at the end of 90-days, 6 months, 1 year, and so on so we can objectively measure progress.
If you start driving without knowing where you’re going, you probably won’t get to your destination. Likewise, you can’t reach a goal without seeing it. We have to know what your goals are before we can help you figure out how to reach them.
Goal #3 – Help You Create a Plan
The last goal of a free intro is to work together to create your personalized health and fitness prescription. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach and when you come into our gym to seek our help, we are going to prescribe what the best plan is for you, completely dependent on your goals, your preferences and your budget.
It may include any combination of the following:
- Personal Training
- Group Classes
- Nutrition Coaching
- Online Coaching
- Supplemental Programming
It’s all about you! And we can’t wait to find out how we can help!
