What Happens When I Sign-Up for a Fitness Plan?

DSC_1218Congratulations! You’ve just finished the hardest step of starting a workout regiment: telling yourself that you can make a change in your life.

I’m completely serious in saying this. Lifting dumbbells and doing burpees are small potatoes when compared to making yourself realize that now is the best time to start. That making a change in your life starts at this very instant.

So now what? You’re ready to make a change, but maybe the next step is a bit daunting, especially if you’re not familiar with gyms, or personal fitness. If you’re reading this blog, you probably know a little about Boomer Fitness and what we do, but you might not be clear on how we get you started.

I want to tell you a little bit about what you can expect from our sign-up process, so you don’t feel anxious about coming in. This way, you will know what to expect from the minute you walk in the door.

When you first come in, you’re going to meet with me, Brian Stecker. I’m a friendly guy, I promise! During our initial talk, I like to get to know a few things about you, like your past history in fitness, your current physical status from your point of view, and why you want to make a change in your fitness regimen.

We’ll talk about specific goals you have, any injuries we need to look out for, and discuss how we can fit in your busy schedule.  When we’re setting goals and building nutritional plans, we break up your schedule into 4 week blocks. This gives us just enough time to make progress in manageable, measurable blocks of time. We’ll take some initial measurements to get a baseline to measure your improvement as we move forward.

During our talk, there is absolutely no such thing as a stupid question. The whole reason I’m here is to introduce you to a healthier lifestyle, and there’s no better way to do this than by learning.

Think about it this way: Even Body Builder Lou Ferrigno, famous for portraying the Hulk in the 70s, had a first day at the gym. There was likely a time where he had no idea what kettlebell was, much less what you do with one. Everybody has to start somewhere, and I’m here to help you get that start.

Once we’ve finished planning your fitness regime, I’ll give you a brief tour, and show the various stations we will be using. We’ll take a look at our cardio machines, the free weights, and the host of other tools we have in the gym.

After that, we’ll introduce you to our host of friendly personal trainers here at Boomer Fitness! We’re a family here at the gym, committed to getting you the attention you need to achieve your fitness goals.

And then from there? You start changing your life for the better.

Have some questions about getting started? Shoot me an email with any questions you might have, and we’ll get you on your way to a healthy life.
