The Original Gym group training consists of small classes of up to six, with individualised programming and detailed coaching. By using proven programming methods, our group training approach will take you from A to B. This is the difference between real training, and just getting a workout.
The goal of training is to develop athletic ability and improve musculoskeletal health by improving our strength, mobility and overall ability to move. Our aim is to build an injury-resistant resilient body, improving both your flexibility and strength together, as well as making you leaner, fitter and more athletic.
The series consists of a number of sessions, each with a different focus.
Classes can be taken individually or in combination, depending on your needs. As training is individualised, these sessions are for mixed abilities. Several existing clients also mix in classes with personal training.
Why train in a small group?
Many gyms offer either large classes with little coaching or progression and no individualisation, or expensive personal training. Small group programmed training is our attempt to create the "best of both worlds" - to bring the benefits of personalised programming and coaching to a more affordable and engaging group format. Groups are limited to a maximum of 6 people to ensure a high level of coaching and attention. The sessions follow a set structure, but within that the training programme is individualised and periodised.
How does it work?
Your first few sessions act as an assessment - you advance through various exercises until your current level is reached, from which an individualised training plan (lasting between 4-12 weeks) can be written. The whole group works together but with everyone following individualised programming, maximising your progression and results.
What does "programmed" mean?
Random programming produces random results. The key to making progress and getting real results lies in having a structured approach to training. "Programmed" workouts are pre-written: exactly what weights, sets, repetitions and so on have been pre-determined based on your previous achievements. Most programming is written in blocks, which run anywhere from 4-12 weeks long. By using proven programming methods, our group training approach will take you from A to B. This is the difference between real training, and just getting a workout.
What does a typical session involve?
All sessions include a warm-up, fundamental mobility work, strength development and structural balance exercises designed to prevent the development of imbalances.
