“When I first came to the gym I was worried I would be out of my depth, look out of place and that I would be the only one in the room that couldn’t do anything. I realised none of those were true after the first day and that quickly put my mind at ease after that….”
It is the coaches job to advise, prescribe and optimise movement patterns in a controlled setting first before we then add load, intensity, or complexity of skills. We all know that it is not smart to add strength to dysfunction, or it is bound inefficiency or possibly even injury. Scaling workouts is nothing to be ashamed of. It is not for the weak and the untrained and does not mean your workout was less worthy because you scaled.
As passionate and helpful coaches, our goal when you enter our the gym is to pass on as much knowledge, information, and encouragement onto you as possible. Here are our top tips that we believe you, as an athlete, can do to get the most out of your coaches and your time here with us in the gym….
Consistently tracking your numbers – weight lifted, reps performed, and workout times—gives you a platform for which to build and make progress. Make a note of everything – even how you were feeling that day.
I’ve made some incredible friends and I get to workout with some of the most positive and inspiring people every day. It’s not just a workout you get here it’s support and encouragement from some absolutely amazing coaches and along with this you get to do things you never dreamt you would be able to do.
I came to Glevum looking for a change from "just going to the gym". It has been incredible and because of this I am stronger, more flexible and more explosive than ever. The team have done an incredible job building a community of like minded individuals, covering all levels of fitness and abilities.
Initially I was worried about being intimidated by people far fitter and stronger than me as I have never felt comfortable in the gym using weights. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming and the coaching you get is great. Fabulous place, fabulous people.
The happiest, fittest place on earth. Nothing short of a revelation in community, healthy living and friendship. The Crisp family and their friends put every ounce of their considerable kindness and determination into this place and it shows. A truly wonderful place.
Fabulous people, great coaches who invest time and effort in helping you to achieve things you never thought possible. Love this place.
I have achieved a fitness level I didn’t think I was capable of since joining Glevum. Due to the support of the coaches and the great equipment available I am anyways pushing myself further and further. All with the added bonus of making lots of new friends!
