5 Features Personalized For You!
At StoneAgeFuel we’re not your run of the mill gym. We pride ourselves on being a bit different, taking a more personalized approach and working to build a small community of likeminded people united toward the common goal of getting fit for life!
5. Get Fit For Life Foundations
When you started training with us, you most likely went through a one-on-one introductory session with a coach, followed by 10-20 personal training sessions with this same coach, where he/she worked with you on your strengths and weaknesses in order to get you prepared for classes at a speed that was comfortable for you. Finally, before you were graduated to group classes, you had to reach a certain fitness level before qualifying.
If we’re doing it right, then you probably developed a relationship with this coach and feel like you have someone in your corner helping you reach your health and fitness goals. We call this person your Coach For Life!
Can you imagine what your gym life would look like without having gone through personal training? If you had been thrown right into the fire of group classes on day 1? If you would have been asked to perform complex weightlifting movements on day 2? It probably wouldn’t have gone all that well for you, right?
Many gyms do just that! They throw you directly into the fire of group classes, or they put you through a 12-person group fundamentals program and you never learn the movements properly because you don’t receive enough one-on-one attention. Best case scenario, you get by because you happen to move well and be athletic. Worst case scenario, you get injured or overwhelmed and quit. Through it all, you never get the chance to really get to know your coach. In fact, you probably are never even given the option to have a Coach For Life.
A one-on-one intro day, followed by 10-20 personal training sessions, is part of the StoneAgeFuel Get Fit For Life prescription. It’s what we have discovered is best for performance, for health and safety, and for longevity at the gym.
4. Coach for Life
We’re not interested in “New Year’s resolutioner” clients. We’re interested in clients who are looking for a coach and fitness program to keep them healthy and fit for life. The same way most of us have a family doctor our entire lives, and likely an accountant and maybe even a lawyer, our hope is that your StoneAgeFuel Coach For Life becomes your fitness, health and wellness, and nutrition coach for life—someone you turn to to help you when you’re 20, when you’re 40 and when you’re 85 years old.
Believe it or not, this is RARE in the fitness industry today. What is more common are personal trainers or CrossFit coaches who stick around for just a couple years. The reason they leave the industry is because they can’t make a living coaching. For the client this means the gym you’re at is often marred by a constant revolving door of coaches.
StoneAgeFuel’s biggest goal is to professionalize the industry so its coaches can earn professional wages and become career coaches—meaning they stick around for years, even decades.
For YOU, this means you won’t have a constant revolving door of coaches; you’ll have someone in your corner for life.
3. StoneAgeFuel-trained Coaches
Let’s be honest: The fitness industry is somewhat in disarray. Anyone can call himself a personal trainer, whether he took a weekend course or did a four-year educational program. StoneAgeFuel coaches have all been through a two-year apprentice coach diploma program (the MadLab PCDP—professional coach diploma program. More on the details of PCDP in an upcoming post).
In short, your coach knows what they’re talking about—how to keep you working toward your goals, and how to keep you injury-free.
2. Stay Fit For Life Growth and Maintenance aka our Hybrid Group Coaching + Personal Coaching Memberships
Maybe you have taken advantage of our hybrid membership options, and maybe you have not. But one of the features of StoneAgeFuel is you always have the option to do extra one-on-one personal training on top of your group classes—even if you’re a five-year veteran—with your coach to work on any specific weaknesses or skills you want to improve upon. Another option is to talk to your coach about getting an individual program.
1. Worldwide Network of Gyms
If you travel—for work or pleasure—We are part of an association of gyms called MadLab with members all around the world.
When you show up at a MadLab associated gym in another city and tell them where you’re from, not only will you have the piece of mind that you’re in good hands, you’ll get the royal treatment from the MadLab family guaranteed.
