The space we use for our gym is different. Gyms for many people can be intimidating & from the outside ours is no different but once inside it’s very different to large scale gyms. Since day 1, I have worked to make sure (& I continue to teach my interns) that when people come through our doors, we know their names. They aren’t just numbers to us, they are hard working people who are trusting us with their health & giving us their hard earned money. That shouldn’t be taken lightly. Very few people want to be yelled at like army recruits so our job is to find the perfect balance of fun & enjoyment while making each individual more athletic & achieving results that they want not what we enforce upon them as the “gold standard”. I truely believe we do this, with smiles on our faces.
