Our Most Frequently Asked Questions
You should arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the start of your session to meet your trainer and assure you have filled out your intake forms. You will be greeted by your trainer, checked in to your session, and introduced to the other members. The session will start with a 5-10 minute warm-up, followed by a demonstration of the workout. You will always be shown the exercises, proper form, and duration of the workout. Once the workout is complete, you will cool down for 5-10 minutes, followed by a feeling of satisfaction for completing a challenging workout.
If you are cleared by your doctor to perform strength, endurance, and conditioning work and feel comfortable training, communicate your injury to your trainer so you can be provided a modification as necessary.
