The unique structure of our group training membership (10 to 30 people) allows you to maximize the benefit of your program by a high energy, motivating atmosphere. Each workout is designed to increase your functional and core strength, reduce injuries, increase flexibility and boost your metabolism.
These sessions are conducted in a circuit format using timed intervals. The GTM sessions are at the same time every week and do not require an appointment. Check the GTM training schedule or pick one up at the counter. Participation is UNLIMITED! You can attend as many sessions as you like!
GTM is a perfect environment to meet other members and build community in the gym. We begin each session with an introduction of any new clients and by having folks introduce themselves to each other before we begin. We then demonstrate and describe the workout before conducting the dynamic warm-up. Each session ends with a team building exercise and high fives all around!
We offer Two options for GTM:
1. Foundations–Do you ever feel like you don’t know how to exercise correctly? Have you never really learned how to do the basic movements? Have you ever injured yourself when you started training? Maybe your back hurts or that nagging shoulder injury just won’t heal. Do you want to learn once and for all the most effective way to exercise?
When you build a house, you must first develop a solid foundation. This ensures that anything built on top of that foundation will be stable and long-lasting. In this sense, your body is like a house- you must build a good foundation of fitness before you can think of designing an effective program to help you reach your goals. Foundations will teach you the 6 basic human movements that our entire program is built upon. Everyone starts in Foundations before moving on to our Afterburn circuit. It is essential that you learn these movements correctly so that you can advance to more challenging programming in the future. Foundations is not just for beginners! We have “retrained” countless clients on simple moves like push-ups, squats and lunges. Simple fact- if you’re doing it right, you’re going to see the results that you desire. If you are worried that you won’t be able to keep up in a class with people who have been working out, don’t be. Every single exercise at AF247 will challenge your functional strength regardless of whether you are a seasoned athlete or you’ve never worked out.
Each movement has a progression focusing on building stability, functional strength, and power. AF27 is a fun place to be where making new friends is easy, social interaction is normal, and the environment is healthy. The positive atmosphere will make you forget you are working out!
2. Afterburn–Do you go to the gym and do the same routine every time or take the same spinning class week after week? Bored with the usual exercises? Walked on the treadmill one too many times? Your body is probably so use to what you are doing that it hasn’t changed in months. The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result. STOP THE INSANITY!
Ask yourself, are you getting results from your exercise routine? Are you ready for something different? AF247 is excited to introduce you to Afterburn! Many people strength train with weights while others do cardio or aerobics – somewhere between is our Afterburn Metabolic Training. Get the benefits of both. Your body will get stronger, your cardiovascular fitness will improve, and you will burn calories and see your body change like never before. It’s been on every major news station and some aspects are being used by many major league sports teams. Hollywood stars such as Mathew McConaughey, Jennifer Lopez, and Kim Cattrall are using this type of program to get in “movie star shape”. Metabolic training is a great way to shake things up and give you a full body workout, burn a ton of calories, and get your metabolism going. This is THE most effective workout for burning stubborn fat! There is absolutely no way to describe this workout without inviting you to try it.
The Group Training Membership also includes the Program Design Membership.
WARNING: YOU STILL NEED STRENGTH TRAINING! Group Training is an awesome workout, but it needs to be done in addition to strength training it does not replace it! You still need to do your strength training workout which you will get in Program Design or SPPT. Strength training is needed to maintain lean muscle, strengthen bones, maintain good posture, and many other things that Group Training Membership will not adequately provide. If you need additional help with your strength training, upgrade to an All Access Performance membership to add 4 semi-private personal training.
