I often get asked why our brand of training at Forme Fitness is the best and whether the same results can be achieved from more casual group classes.
I’m all for getting in your fitness however you can – some exercise is certainly better than no exercise. However, one of the most important things that determine the effectiveness of your workout, and your results, is the way you’re trained to perform exercises.
It doesn’t matter how long you do squats for or how many reps you can get out in a set, if your technique is incorrect it could be years before you see any changes in your butt. 10 good squats are much better than 100 short-range “air humps”.
We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. This is why we focus on personal training, in the truest sense of the word. We believe the best results come from developing programs suited to each individual, based on their goals and areas they need to work on.
We also think personal attention is key, and that doesn’t mean keeping an eye over 20 or 30 people in a class and occasionally commenting on a movement, that means intense focus on each individual throughout every single move to ensure their form is spot on and they are exercising safely and effectively.
Another difference with our gym at the Calile, is the atmosphere. There are lots of options out there if you’re looking for loud, pumping workout environments, and I think there’s certainly a time and place for that, however there’s a real risk of getting lost in the crowd, and not being noticed or coached in a meaningful way is not a great feeling and is just not conducive to getting results. Plus it can be dangerous!
At [insert facility name here], we create our own atmosphere through a friendly, supportive community where personal words of encouragement are what get every person through. Our team (trainers and clients) have each others’ backs and are truly invested in the success of every single person in the room.
This personalised approach helps keep you accountable, too. There’s no place to hide and there’s no need to – we’re a team.
