We are about to relaunch our program, schedule & memberships. From the first of October we will be shifting our focus to running a group personal training program.
This will be complemented with a schedule of team training sessions every week. You can read about upcoming changes by downloading the following two letters in PDF format.
Note: All group PT options include access to unlimited Team Training sessions & access to the gym whenever we are open. Team Training option includes access to unlimited TT sessions & access to the gym whenever we are open.
Why are we making the decision to relaunch the program & schedule?
Very simply it's to allow us to improve the quality of training & experience for members no matter what level of fitness someone is at. These changes will put us in a better position us to help you to achieve better long lasting results. We are also now going to offer a huge amount of flexibility to members as we will be running group sessions on the hour every hour between 6/1pm Monday-Friday and 7-1pm on Saturday.
What's the difference between Group PT & Team Training sessions?
Our Group PT program is structured and progressive with much more coach involvement. Although we also do cardio & core work within our Group PT program our Team Training (sweat) sessions are more general faster paced cardio or fitness oriented sessions and are ideal for keeping general levels of fitness up. We will also carry out more regular tests & assessments on an ongoing basis within our Group PT program. TT sessions will be larger than Group PT sessions in terms of numbers taking part.
Is there a couples, friends or family membership option?
There isn't going to be a friends, family or combined couples option as part of the new structure. We will however apply a 15% discount to (both) memberships in the case of partners or same household memberships.
Can I cancel my membership early?
If you sign up for a 12 month membership then the expectation is that you will stay as a member for the duration of your membership contract. If however you would like complete flexibility and the ability to cancel your membership without giving notice you can sign up to a month to month option although the monthly membership would be 15% higher.
What is the Gym+ slot in the new schedule?
This is a new initiative and is available to all members of our programs. As part of the relaunch of the program and schedule, we are now allowing all members to use the gym when we are open. Wherever you see Gym+ you will now have to option to come to the gym and do some additional work with support & guidance from the trainers in the gym.
Can I do as many Team Training sessions as I want?
Yes, absolutely. You aren't limited in any way to the number of sessions or time slots you take part in each week.
Will the Team Training (TT) schedule be reduced or changed over time?
No, we have no plans to reduce the number of TT sessions. The TT schedule has been designed to fit around and complement our Group PT program. We know that many people enjoy the cardio or sweat style sessions and so we will be keeping these sessions as part of the program. The only changes we may look at in the future, in consultation with members, would be to move or add a TT slot if it enhances the program.
Will I have to upgrade my membership when Team Training membership is phased out on November 1st?
No. We are phasing out the Team Training membership option for new (and returning) members from November 1st. If you sign up to the TT membership option prior to this date you will be able to stay on this option.
Can I up/downgrade my membership at any stage?
Yes. We want to offer loads of flexibility here so you will be able to upgrade to either our 4, 8 or 12 Group PT sessions options at any stage. If things become too hectic, busy or stressful on the work or home front, you will also be able to downgrade at any stage.
Anything else I need to know?
Yes - I understand that this is a change to how we have done things. It is however the right thing to do as we have been evolving over a number of years to the point where I felt we needed to put in place a much simpler, more effective and easy to understand program, schedule and membership structure. I am genuinely really excited about the changes we are about to make as it will really allow us to be better at what we do as coaches and also to provide the best service to you.
