PROGRAM - TRAILBLAZE
free 1-on-1 personal training sessions
Program - Trailblaze (PTB) is our free 12-week 1-on-1 personal training module. Each eligible client is paired up with a certified personal trainer volunteer during the entire module, allowing the pair to build a strong relationship. The goal of PTB is to help our clients, who are often referred over by clinics who think they can use our help, to build the physiological and educational foundations for a healthier and more active life. Our hope is to help clients trail blaze into new territories physically, mentally and intellectually.
OVERVIEW OF THE PROGRAM
The Assessment Period is an 8-week long assessment that evaluates the client's motivation, determination and persistence. The client is scheduled for a one-hour personal training session with his or her assigned trainer once a week. The goal of this period is to determine where our client is physically, show them proper lifting form, and build a strength/cardiovascular base for higher activity levels in the next phase. The trainer will assess the client's current abilities and tailor workouts and exercises appropriately. If the client achieves an attendance rate of 90% or greater during these first 8 weeks, then they qualify for the Membership Period.
The Membership Period is a 4 week period that includes a complimentary gym membership for the client to access the gym on their own. The client is encouraged to visit the gym several times every week in order to supplement their weekly personal training session. The initial learnings and progress made in the Assessment Period are leveraged here to allow clients to safely and confidently utilize gym equipment without direct oversight. The goal of these sessions is to accelerate the lifestyle change process and allow our clients to achieve greater results. The addition of independent gym access to personal training sessions, encourages the client to start taking charge of their health and fitness. The end of the 4-week Membership Period concludes PTB and its one-on-one training sessions; however, if the client achieves a gym use rate average of at least 3 times/week (including the 1 personal training session) during the Membership Period, then they receive their first 8-week Membership Subsidization Block.
What's after Program-TrailBlaze?
Clients who graduate from PTB with a satisfactory attendance rate qualify for 1 free Membership Subsidization Block (8 weeks). The client can continue to earn free membership blocks by meeting an average gym use rate of 3 times per week.
